Professional Landscape Lighting adds beauty, character and safety to a building. Street lights/poles, Uplights, bollards, linear wall grazers, underwater lights, recessed wall lights etc enhance the unique styling of landscape, while offering the functionality and peace of mind of a well lit outdoor space or hardscape design.

Pathways, planters, trees, water bodies, pool and pool decks, terrace gardens and roadways are a few key areas involving landscape lighting. With the combination of energy costs from energy demands, increasing availability of sustainable design methods, global warming considerations, and aesthetic and safety concerns in garden and landscape design the methods and equipment of outdoor illumination have been evolving. The increasing use of solar power, low voltage fixtures, energy efficient lamp bulbs-xenon bulbs-fiber optics, and creative lighting design are examples of innovation in the field.
