The Best Places To Install Landscape Lighting

Los Angeles Landscape Lighting

Well-placed landscape lights can offer a homeowner so much. By installing landscape lighting in certain areas around your Los Angeles property, you can increase the safety and security of your home. You can also improve the curb appeal after dark, increase your home’s value, and feel better about your safety and security at night.

Since there are so many different places you can install outdoor lights, you’ll want to keep things simple. You can always add pool lighting or other outdoor lights if you find that there are more places you’d like to illuminate. If you’re confused about where to begin, our Los Angeles electricians recommend you place landscape lighting in the following locations.

Entryway and Porch Lights

Since you’re probably installing landscape lighting for the first time, the front and back entryways may only have one single porch light. Most homes aren’t well lit at the entryway, which can pose a safety risk for anyone visiting or accessing your property after dark.

Therefore, our professional electricians at ESA Electric recommend installing additional illumination in this area of your home first.

  • Recessed lights under the porch roof
  • Uplights to align the porch slab
  • Wall lights or downlights attached to the house


Welcome Guests With Pole Lighting At The Curb

Installing a lantern light on a short pole is one sure way to make your guests feel welcome and invited when they visit. There are so many different styles of decorative pole lighting to choose from that it will be easy to match the architectural style of your home. You can also select different pole heights, but we recommend the shorter poles since they are easier for you to access and maintain.

Install Dusk-To-Dawn Lights Or Motion Sensor Lights

Two types of downlights are motion sensor activated and dusk-to-dawn. You can also get the kind that will do both. Your driveway area is a great place to install them.

If you spend a lot of time outdoors after dark or need to increase the security of your property, consider installing the dusk-to-dawn lights. They stay on until the sensor senses it’s daytime and then turns off automatically.

Motion sensor lights are also available. They only turn on when they sense motion.

While motion sensor outdoor lights are available, dusk-to-dawn lights will provide illumination all night. You can install them anywhere that you need additional lighting.

Installing LED Landscape Lighting

Installing efficient, LED landscape lighting is the best way to save energy. If you don’t want to worry about your electric bill or let that keep you from using your outdoor lights, make sure you get your electrician to install LEDs. They’re going to give you the same bright illumination as standard incandescent lights but are way more energy-efficient.
