I am constantly asked which trees offer the most benefit to the home and landscape when used in landscape lighting, or focal tree lighting designs. Homeowners want to take advantage of the best aesthetic return by making sure to choose the right tree(s) in their landscape for tree lighting.
When you are looking for the biggest bang for your buck when it comes to outdoor lighting, the genre of outdoor lighting that will ultimately be the most dramatic is tree lighting. Trees as a species naturally have a great deal of character. No two trees present themselves identically. For example the character and effect that is interpreted through lighting a mesquite tree is far different from the interpretation conveyed through lighting a palm tree. Choosing specific trees within your landscape for tree lighting can breathe new life into your landscape and give your entire property a distinct feel.
To prove my point, I am going to take two trees that are commonly used in San Antonio landscape designs and by example show you the way various trees can make you feel when you add tree lighting. Palms trees and mesquite trees are two beloved trees of the landscapes in our area. Palms exhibit a unique branching structure that is all their own. Their abundant overlapping branching pattern is beautiful to look at and makes a wonderful focus of tree lighting designs. The bark, wide caliber of the trunk and tall height of palms exudes majesty and presence and is one of the most requested tree by our customer to use as a focal tree lighting candidate. Palms are very exotic and can take your senses to a place where you can leave your cares behind and relax with a fruity drink. By adding tree lighting to the palm trees in your landscape, you can take yourself to an exotic far-away place without ever leaving your backyard.
Mesquite trees are hauntingly beautiful trees. Their outstretched and weeping, curved limbs create a branching pattern that conveys wisdom and elegance in the landscape. When Mesquite trees are lit they cast shadows in the areas surrounding the tree that mimic light dancing from the glow of a full moon; eerie and beautiful at the same time. Lighting mesquite trees in your landscape is a great way to add mystery and drama to the curb appeal of your home as well.
In order to bring out the character of each individual tree and makes the unique characteristics shine through we use various tree lighting techniques. Up lighting is used to accentuate the trunk and height of a tree. Well lights are often used at the base of a tree to play up the trees width and girth, and down lighting and moon lighting are often used to accentuate the canopy and add drama to the tree and the area around the tree. We treat each tree as a separate entity with our tree lighting designs because what works for one tree best, will not necessarily work for another. Professional tree lighting is an art we take seriously. We also pay special attention not to damage or alter your tree leaving it susceptible to fungus and disease when installing your tree lighting fixtures. A healthy tree is a beautiful tree for years and years to come.
Our tree lighting when paired with our expert landscape lighting designs can bring out the best in your landscape, and improve the way your entire property looks in the evening. Tree lighting and landscape lighting also gives you added security and plenty of curbside ambiance too.
