The beauty of your outdoor space is something to be cherished and enhanced. Whether you're looking to illuminate your garden, highlight architectural features, or create a welcoming ambiance, outdoor lighting plays a crucial role. When considering landscape lighting installation or outdoor lighting installation, you may wonder whether to hire a landscaper or a professional outdoor lighting designer. Let’s look at the key differences between the two and help you make an informed decision.
Landscapers are professionals who specialize in transforming and maintaining outdoor spaces. They have expertise in various aspects of landscaping, such as planting, hardscaping, and maintaining lawns. While many landscapers can install basic outdoor lighting, their primary focus is on the overall aesthetics of your outdoor space.
However, there are limitations to what a landscaper can offer in terms of outdoor lighting design and installation.
A professional outdoor lighting designer specializes in the art and science of lighting, with a keen focus on aesthetics, functionality, and safety. They are experts in selecting the right fixtures, techniques, and placement to create stunning and functional outdoor lighting systems.
When deciding whether to hire a landscaper or a professional outdoor lighting designer, consider the scope of your project and your primary objectives.
When it comes to landscape lighting installation or outdoor lighting installation, choosing between a landscaper and a professional outdoor lighting designer depends on the complexity of your project and your desired results. While landscapers excel at creating cohesive outdoor spaces, professional outdoor lighting designers bring a specialized skill set to create stunning, functional, and energy-efficient lighting designs. Carefully assess your needs, budget, and long-term goals to make the right choice and enhance the beauty and functionality of your outdoor space.
Absolute Lighting installed my outdoor flood lights 2 years ago and they are beautiful! They did such a great job that I used them to setup and take down the Christmas lights for the past 2 years. I would highly recommend them. Frank always responds to questions and automatically puts me on the schedule for set up and take down of the Christmas Lights.
Frank and the team at Abulous were great to work with. They came out and retro-upgraded some previous lighting that we had done a few years back and made it look as seamless and continuous as possible. They also worked with us on the best (& most economical) way to light up a hard to reach area of our yard. They also followed up with us after we had another group of workers "disturb" some of the lighting wires and came back out and fixed everything back up again. Very friendly, dependable local resource who do great work. Highly recommend.
After reviewing multiple companies we contracted with Abilous Lighting to create outside accent lighting for our home, backyard patio, walkways, & fire pit. Their ideas and design were the best! It was a pleasure working with Frank Hasty, who did the design, and his crew of Brandon & Rusty who performed the work. All were excellent to work with. We are very happy with Abulous Lighting.
