LIGHTING

Eco-friendly Landscape Lighting

 

full houseLow-voltage landscape lighting systems are safe, economical and energy efficient and provide numerous benefits for homeowners. Lighting can be used to provide safe access near paths, drives and entry areas as well as for overall security, and the beauty of gardens and homes can be enhanced by showcasing architectural and plant features with dramatic lighting techniques. These cost-effective lighting systems use a transformer to reduce your normal household current to a 12-volt flow. Timers and motion detectors can be installed with the system to automatically turn the lights on and off. Simple wiring connects small lights that can be set along a path or into a flowerbed or garden setting.

 

The practical and aesthetic effects created by landscape lighting are limited only by the existing features of the architecture and by the creativity of the designer. Explore the latest in outdoor lighting options from Carolyn’s, where landscape lighting is an art form!

Uplighting & Wash Lights

These are perfect finishing touches for any outdoor environment. They are functional for safety and also part of the entire scene, creating a mood both inviting and dramatic. A romantic mood is set on a gazebo or spa using a combination of up and downlights. Trees, sculptures and water features come to life with creative crosslighting, backlighting and moonlighting.

 

Task Lighting

This covers a wide range of applications including decks, barbeque areas, patio covers, etc.

 

Rail Lighting

This is essential for safety and is required by some building codes. Deck railing and posts are much more inviting when illuminated by tiny surface-mounted fixtures.

 

Path Lighting

This type of lighting uses low fixtures which direct illumination down and outward. These fixtures are shielded on top to prevent glare. They are used along walks or stairs or where safe night access is required.

 

Step Lighting

This type of lighting uses low fixtures which direct illumination down and outward. These fixtures are shielded on top to prevent glare. They are used along walks or stairs or where safe night access is required.

 

Downlighting & Moonlighting

Accomplished with bullet-type or well-type fixtures placed above eye level on a structure (or even in a tree), this technique illuminates general areas for safety, security and aesthetics.

 

Backlighting & Silhouette Lighting
