From in-ground lights and pathway illumination to spotlights and pond lights, we’ve got your covered with just about any lighting setup to enhance the ambiance and safety of your outside spaces. As you’re considering adding outdoor lights to your home, here are the top things to know:


Outdoor Lighting Boosts Home Security & Safety

A well-lit landscape is a more secure landscape. Enjoy greater peace of mind with strategically positioned outdoor landscape lighting that improves visibility and discourages intruders. Lights also make your after-hours yard safer to navigate—for you and for your guests.


Outdoor Lighting Enhances Your Home’s Visual Appeal

It’s hard to overemphasize how outdoor lighting can improve the attractiveness of your home exterior and the atmosphere of your yard. The right lighting can go a surprisingly long way in amping up curb appeal and property value.


Outdoor Lighting Can Become a Fundamental Part of Landscaping Design

Outdoor landscape lighting isn’t just about practicality and security. It can also function as a specific stylistic or artistic element in landscaping design. Pathside lights, for example, create a romantic element to an evening walkway; lights along retaining walls can soften these features and bring out special tones and textures in garden plantings.

Landscape Lighting Frequently Asked Questions

Are LED lights suitable for outdoor lights?

LED lights are suitable for outdoor use and they’re often recommended because they are tough, energy-efficient, and have a long lifespan. This means LED outdoor lights require less maintenance and replacements. At MetroGreenscape, we use a variety of LED bulbs for outdoor lighting in Charlotte. Depending on how you want to use your space, we can provide bright options that improve safety or softer lights that enhance your landscaping and create a beautiful atmosphere that you, your family, and your friends can enjoy year-round.

What is dusk to dawn outdoor lighting?

Dusk-to-dawn outdoor lighting is exterior lighting that’s controlled automatically, so you don’t need to turn them on and off every morning and evening. Many Charlotte homeowners use dusk-to-dawn lighting to improve safety in their homes. Our skilled outdoor lighting technicians can install these lights for your home and surrounding areas to illuminate walkways, driveways, landscaping, and yards based on your preferences. We can also program the lights’ schedule to fit the hours you would prefer to have the lights on, creating a custom timetable that aligns with your lifestyle.

Where should you place landscape lighting?

Landscape lighting is typically placed in strategic areas throughout your landscape or hardscape, with six-to-ten feet between lights. In most cases, the lights will highlight features such as sculptures, retaining walls, or plants that improve your space’s aesthetic value. MetroGreenscape can help you review your current outdoor landscaping or create a new landscape design that includes lighting that brings every feature to life.
