Changing Your Landscape Lighting for Winter

As the fall season starts, the days are getting shorter, leaving you more time to enjoy your landscape lighting but perhaps you’ve noticed that certain areas that look great when lit in the spring and summer have lost their luster. Flowers fade, leaves fall off the trees, fountains need to be shut down and winterized, and colour in general becomes drabber. Now is the time to shake things up a bit for the winter and upcoming holiday season.

Different Types of Lights

Using the right type of lights can make a difference in the winter, especially when snow has covered the ground. Softer, low voltage lighting can create a wonderful warm glow to your outdoor lighting and lessen the risk of ugly glare off the snow. Dimmer, warmer landscape lighting is often more inviting during the winter but will still provide enough light for safety and security purposes.

 The heat generated from low-voltage LED lighting will give off enough heat to just keep the snow melted, though it make take a few days if you get a big dumping of snow, but this can add to the ambiance. The quality of fixtures provided by Landscape Lighting Ottawa are high and built to withstand our harsh winters.
Coloured lights can also add effect to your winter outdoor lighting, but only if used sparingly, since changing all your spot lights to coloured bulbs can look tacky. Small strands of LED lights can be pretty when wrapped tightly around the bare trunk and branches of a tree.

Focus On Different Elements

With some landscape lighting systems, changing the position of your lighting can be quite easy. For example, up-lighting wispy, bare-branched trees onto a wall or fence can create a dramatic effect. Placing lighting in front of outdoor holiday décor is also a way to enjoy the season into the evening, creating a festive first impression for your Christmas party guests.

If you’re like a lot of people, you get busier as the season passes and before you know it, there’s snow on the ground and the Christmas lights still need to go up.
