Up lighting can make a stunning transformation to your home’s evening appearance.
When it comes to getting the ideal illumination for your landscape lighting, it is not uncommon to use a combination of down and up lighting. At Laurdane Associates, we take the time necessary to understand what you want to accomplish and make recommendations so that your landscape lighting produces the effects and benefits you have in mind for your Raleigh, North Carolina home.
There are two types of up lighting that can be utilized. The first is well lights that are installed even with the surface. These are a good option when you do not want a trip hazard and what you wish to illuminate isn’t growing too close to the lighting, essentially blocking its light. They are also ideal for placement under trees that have beautiful foliage you want to show off. A hood can be placed on this type of up lighting to divert the light in one direction.
Another type of up lighting involves placement on short posts. These are a great option for flower beds to add drama. You can think of up lighting a bit like using a flashlight under your chin to give your face a “spooky” appearance when telling ghost stories around a campfire. It can create an amazing result to show off trees, foliage, outdoor living areas, fountains, and certain architectural aspects of your home.
