Landscape lighting adds another dimension to your landscape design and extends the enjoyment of it into the evening...how nice!
Ideally, your design should be not too bright, but should create a subtle beauty throughout your property. Therefore, you don't want to have too many lights...just the right amount to create a beautiful nightscape and the lighting be functional at the same time.
If you are considering installing some outdoor lighting, there are both lighting systems to consider along with the fixtures themselves.
You can choose different types of lighting. I don't mean the types of fixtures, but I mean the type of systems. They go from the easiest to the most intricate.
There are various types of lighting fixtures and all serve different purposes (generally).

"Susan, what a pleasure it was to work with you. You made me feel like I was your only client - responding late at night and always so quickly! Your design is amazing and we only hope we can do justice to it when we plant . You have such fantastic ideas and you are so open to suggestions and changes. Loved working with you - now if you could only come to Canada and plant it !!! "
