Walkway Lighting Tips | Arbor Hills Landscaping Services | Omaha, NE

Stumbling in the dark on nights when you get home late? You don’t need to—especially when you install beautiful walkway lighting to improve your Omaha home’s appearance and safety.

Walkway lighting serve several purposes, such as keeping your guests and your landscaping features safer, as well as enhancing the visual appeal of your yard.

Walkway Lighting Tips For Your Omaha Home Landscaping

The key is choosing the right walkway lighting for your project. To ensure proper illumination and a look that will complement your landscaping and your home’s architectural features.

Get creative

For a landscaping design that really pops, take some risks. Whether that means mixing outdoor landscape lighting styles for an eclectic feel or investing in unique lamp shapes or colored lighting, don’t be afraid to push the envelope a bit.

Motion sensor lights

Motion sensor lights can add visual interest as they illuminate one or two at a time as you or your guests traverse the path. This can give your landscaping a modern feel and add drama to your yard; however, you will need to consider that the area will not be illuminated when the walkway is not in use. This will be fine for some projects but will not work for others.

Invest in a timer

Walkway lighting is a convenient tool for your home during evening hours. Maximize that convenience by connecting your outdoor illumination to timers. This gives you great versatility, allowing you to set lights to come on when you’ll be home late, and turn off after you go to bed.

Use smart outdoor lighting

If you like to control home features with a smart hub or app, invest in smart outdoor lighting that you can control from anywhere. There are many types of smart outdoor lights available, and the list is growing daily.

solar-powered options

In some cases, the best lights for walkways are solar-powered options. This is particularly true for those who do not want to have to worry about transformer locations or their dogs digging up electrical lines. For example, if the walkway you want to illuminate is a good distance from the nearest power source, solar pathway lights might be your best bet. Solar-powered landscape lighting that has no wires and does not need a transformer is also generally easier to install in areas that are particularly rocky, steep or difficult to get to.

Consult the pros

Of course, hiring an Omaha landscaper is one of the best ways to add landscape lighting that blends with your existing yard features. Landscaping professionals in Omaha, NE love designing eye-catching outdoor spaces, and they know the latest styles, trends, and technologies. They’ll guide you to getting the look you want to achieve.
