Popular Types of Exterior Lighting

Patios and decks are an extension of every home’s living space, so let our Upper Darby electricians help you get the most from your space by installing deck lighting. Whether you are entertaining, grilling, or just relaxing outside, proper exterior lighting can create the type of unique atmosphere that everyone will enjoy.

Among the many types of patio and deck lighting that we have installed, some of the most popular types include:

  • Step lighting: Step lighting can easily illuminate the steps across your patio and deck, prevent any missteps, as well as allow family and guests to navigate the area safely.
  • Task lighting: This type of lighting is typically intended to light areas where specific activities are performed and is ideal for locations where outdoor grilling or food preparation often takes place.
  • Atmosphere lighting: Patio lighting can range from dramatic to subtle and has the ability to transform a seemingly uninteresting space into an area that everyone can enjoy. By using your home’s architecture, available landscaping, and our expertise, we can help you transform your deck or patio.

Redefining Garden & Landscape Lighting

Bring out the beauty of your property with garden and landscape lights installed by our Upper Darby electricians. Transcend the ordinary by creating an exterior lighting system that will make your home stand out from the rest by highlighting the surrounding landscape.

By using leveraging lighting techniques including downlighting, uplighting, and transverse lighting, Martella Electric has successfully used a variety of approaches that have delivered stunning results.

Some of our most popular garden and landscape lighting approaches include:

  • Spotlighting: This type of lighting is meant to highlight interesting architectural elements around the property using landscape lights that have a focused beam of light. Typically, the best results are achieved when the fixture is mounted overhead to minimize glare.
  • Silhouetting: Garden lights emphasize the structure of trees and other landscaping and 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: This approach uses light to cast a shadow onto a vertical surface of the home and can employ landscape lights placed directly in front of the subject. This technique is particularly interesting when used in conjunction with plants that have a unique branch structure.
  • Grazing: Grazing is particularly stunning when used with textured vertical surfaces and employs the placement of garden lights with six to eight inches of a façade. This produces dramatic shadows and works well with stone, brick retaining walls, privacy fences, and other vertical surfaces.
  • Tree Lighting: Tree lighting adds to the beauty of trees on the property and 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: Path lighting is both useful and aesthetically pleasing as it creates an attractive symmetrical pattern of light for navigation across the property.

Moreover, with a variety of different fixtures available we can create nearly an unlimited number of looks. That is why so many customers look to Martella Electric for landscape lighting services.
