Your Red Bank Landscape Design Contractor Installs Custom Sheds
While most homeowners are familiar with low voltage path lights, many are unaware that there are several other types of low voltage light fixtures for use in various locations in the Expert Landscape Lighting Design. In addition to path lights, there are also wall lights, spotlights and uplights that are low voltage. Each of these, as well as other types of low voltage light fixtures, can be used in a variety of ways in lots of different places around your Red Bank home and garden.
- Spotlights as the name suggests are used to illuminate one particular spot or area. They may be used to highlight some of landscape plantings such as small trees or to make a piece of garden art or sculpture a focal point at night. Spotlights generally are mounted on a stake and have a base that swivels in order to better aim the beam of light exactly where you want it to shine.
- Uplights are somewhat like spotlights and in some situations the two can be used interchangeably. The main difference is that uplights are also offered as recessed lights, so the housing of the light is buried in the ground or recessed into the floor of a deck, porch or patio. These are best used when you don't want the light fixture to be visible.The enclosed light itself is usually adjustable, so it can be pointed where you want the light.
- Wall lights are mounted on the wall of a your home or another structure. The great thing about wall lights is that they can often provide both ambient lighting at night as well as a decorative touch in the daytime.
