Bring out the beauty of your property with garden and landscape lights installed by Martella Electric. Transcend the ordinary by creating an exterior lighting system that will make your home stand out from the rest by highlighting the surrounding landscape. Leveraging lighting techniques including Downlighting, Uplighting and Transverse lighting, Martella Electric has successfully used a variety of approaches that have delivered stunning results, including:
Spotlighting – Highlighting interesting architectural elements around the property using landscape lights with a focused beam of light. Typically, the best results are achieved when the fixture is mounted overhead to minimize glare.
Silhouetting – Emphasizing the structure of trees and other landscaping, garden lights are placed between the plantings and a vertical surface to create a silhouette that delivers dramatic results. This is particularly effective to emphasize shapes.
Shadowing – Casting a shadow onto a vertical surface of the home, Shadowing employs landscape lights placed directly in front of the subject. This technique is particularly interesting when used in conjunction with plantings that have a unique branch structure.
Grazing – Particularly stunning when used with textured vertical surfaces, Grazing employs the placement of garden lights with six to eight inches of a façade and aiming directly upward. This produces dramatic shadows and works well with stone, brick retaining walls, privacy fences and other vertical surfaces.
Tree Lighting – Emphasizing the beauty of trees on the property, Tree Lighting often involves the placement of landscape lights at the base of the trunk to highlight foliage in warmer months and branches during the winter.
Path Lighting – Both useful and aesthetically pleasing, Path Lighting creates an attractive symmetrical patter of light for navigation across the property. Moreover, with a variety of different fixtures available we’ve created an almost unlimited number of looks.
