What Is Outdoor Wall Lighting?

There’s a simple answer to this question and a much more nuanced answer. The simple answer is that wall lighting is any lighting that shines on your walls. However, the details of wall lighting are much more interesting than that.

Wall lighting is the art of how to light walls to show them off. You may think that there isn’t much to a wall. It’s an afterthought. But walls should never be an afterthought. If you plan on lighting your home, walls should be one of the first features you consider. How you light your walls will set the tone for the rest of your lighting system. Often, outdoor wall lighting serves as a background or base for all your other outdoor lighting. Get it wrong, and your whole project is thrown off. But get it right, and your home comes to life with spectacular interest.

Free Lighting Design Consultation

We offer a free design consultation to our clients. We will first listen to your ideas of what you would like in your lighting portrait. We will ask:

  • What are your main vantage points? (Where do you see the yard from?)
  • Are there certain paths or steps you would like to navigate at night?
  • What elements are most important to you in your landscape?

We will discuss the perspectives from which you see the yard and how you use the space. We will discuss various landscape lighting design concepts.

We should have a brief discussion about your budget.

We will then take panoramic photos and use these, in conjunction with our notes from our conversations to create a design that will best meet your needs. Depending on the size and scope of your project, design times can vary

We will provide you with a detailed proposal covering the specific areas illuminated and equipment included with a specific price. I’ll also bring my spreadsheet so we can use it together to fine tune the proposal to best meet your needs.
