Perfecting Your Columbia SC Garden Lighting

Professional landscape lighting makes all your efforts shine at night.

Professional landscape lighting makes all your efforts shine at night.

One of the benefits of being in the outdoor lighting business is the simple privilege of seeing so many outstandingly landscaped homes and gardens. Several of our customers for whom we installed lighting on the front of their home have made the transition into the backyard. When we see these beautifully landscaped backyards, with elaborate walkways, we can’t help but be excited to show the effects our accent lighting will have on their backyard. By a simple night time demonstration, we can show how truly spectacular our customer’s backyard can be in the evening.

Walkway lighting can add the necessary safety of walking through your yard at night.

The accent lighting we provide illuminates the foliage to perfection. Not to mention, our pathway lighting adds that extra necessary safety aspect. In most instances of backyard lighting installations, we prefer the implementation of the energy efficient, low maintenance LED system. Our LED lighting systems consist of the latest technology and have all the capabilities of traditional halogen lighting. Additionally, LED technology allows for easier adjustment of the lumens level (level of brightness), which makes the process much more desirable for the customer. Our slim LED well lights (flood lights) allow for the fixtures to blend in more naturally with the vegetation while maintaining the same angle and spread of light. No matter what your backyard landscaping consists of, we have all the fixtures you could ever need.

Spotlighting your backyard or garden’s focal points is a must.

Whether your backyard needs LED well lights for uplighting the trees, LED bullet spot lights for accenting a gathering point (outdoor fireplace, firepit, etc.), or LED wall lights to illuminate hardscaped steps, we can handle it all. LED systems allow for less wiring, and simultaneously provide enough power for our low voltage lighting to display at any desired level of lighting or brightness. If you ever have any questions about how to perfectly add lighting to your backyard’s landscaping, visit our website, email us at columbiasc@outdoorlights.com, or call us at (803) 935-4611.
