Adding landscape lighting to your Burlington home’s outdoor space can not only increase the enjoyment that you get from your space as it allows you to enjoy those beautiful summer evenings, but it can also create a stunning display that will be the envy of the neighbourhood.

The following are some of the top trends in landscape lighting that we are seeing this year:

  1. Light up steps with linear LEDs

To brighten up steps on a porch or deck, use linear LEDs. Not only is this a way to make stairs safer and more attractive in the evening, but it can add a modern touch to your landscape design.

  1. Integrated recessed lighting

This is a great way to light up your outdoor space without drawing attention to the lights themselves. Recessed lighting can be incorporated into your home’s architecture or into some other outdoor feature, such as a pergola.

This is a subtle and beautiful way to enhance safety, or can be used for highlighting a focal point of your outdoor space, such as a large tree or water feature.

  1. Stylish designed fixtures

Well-designed lighting fixtures can be a fun and creative way to add your own personal style to your outdoor lighting. Whether you prefer traditional, modern, or whimsical, there are fixtures available to suit your tastes. From elegant brass or copper finishes to offbeat fun designs, this trend will allow you to add your personal creativity.

  1. Smart and energy-efficient lighting

Between energy-efficient LEDs and smart technology that allows your lighting to operate on a timer or from the convenience of your cellphone, worries about utility bills from your landscape lighting are practically a thing of the past.

  1. Lawn bollards

Traditionally used around commercial properties, we are seeing more and more modern lawn bollards being used for residential purposes. These lighting structures add a unique touch to a front or back lawn and are an excellent way to subtly illuminate a pathway or outdoor seating area.

  1. Stringed lighting

Barely visible during the day, stringed lights in an outdoor structure will provide some added ambiance when enjoying a drink or conversation at night on the patio.

  1. Dramatic uplighting

Using uplighting to illuminate your Burlington home or an outdoor feature is a way to create a splash of drama! This is a great way to show off your home while also adding an effective security measure.
