You want to enjoy your Greater Chicago area backyard for as long as you can when the summer months arrive. We all know how cold winters can get.
And a great way to play outside even after the sun sets and embrace that warm weather is with landscape lighting.
Proper landscape lighting adds some moonlighting to your patio, ensures your pathways are passable, and adds a twinkling ambiance to your outdoor entertaining.
But poorly installed landscape lighting can be quite different. The lights could be blinding with angles that are all wrong. Then it becomes more like outdoor light pollution you want to avoid instead of landscape lighting design that you want to embrace. You also don’t want to annoy the neighbors by blasting lighting into their windows in the evenings.
Lighting up your nights can be a good thing if it's professionally designed and installed, avoiding light trespass. Recognize these common mistakes in landscape lighting design to ensure peace on your block.
