Outdoor Lighting Experts in Memphis
At Gurley’s, we specialize in creating unique, inviting, and elegant outdoor spaces for homes in the Mid-South and Memphis area. We offer a holistic approach to your space, offering landscaping and lighting design tailored to suit your specific needs. Whether you need new security lighting to keep your home safe or architectural lighting to highlight your home's best features, we can customize an exterior lighting plan to make the most of your outdoor environment.
4 Types of Outdoor Lighting
Generally speaking, there are four types of outdoor lighting. They include landscape lighting, architectural lighting, security lighting, and patio lighting. Each type of lighting has its own benefit, but they all can work together to add value to your home and help you to fully enjoy your outdoor spaces.
If you only invest in one type of outdoor lighting, make it security lighting. Intruders prefer to target homes with poor or nonexistent lighting in order to avoid being seen. Well-lit entryways and windows can deter burglars from entering your home and putting your family at risk. Security and landscape lighting can also be installed near thick shrubs and large trees to deter potential intruders.
Once you’ve invested in a gorgeous new landscape design, consider adding landscape lighting to highlight your flower beds, trees, shrubs, and other aesthetically pleasing landscaping elements. The overall effect of landscape lighting not only adds value and curb appeal but it also adds a level of ambiance and elegance to your home and outdoor spaces. Landscape lighting can be installed almost anywhere. Well-lit walkways and patios add value to your home and lighting near trees, shrubs, and flowers can highlight gorgeous property features, even at night.
Architectural lighting is a great way to add that wow factor to your home. It adds depth, warmth, and ambiance to any space, and it highlights the best features of your property. Architectural lighting is most often used to focus the eye on:
- Balconies and ledges
- Large or elegant windows
- Doors and entryways
- Front porch columns
One advantage of living in the Mid-South is the opportunity to enjoy outdoor spaces all year long. Residing in Memphis brings mild temperatures for most of the year, which means you can enjoy your pool and patio for longer. One way to make the most of your outdoor environment is by incorporating patio lighting. Front porches, back patios, and other spaces are warmer, cozier, and more inviting with the right lighting.
Advantages of Hiring an Outdoor Lighting Expert
We’re advocates of DIY projects when they can be done safely and efficiently by homeowners, but landscaping and lighting are two areas for which you'll want to rely on the professionals. Each landscape and lighting project has the potential to be costly and dangerous if the proper precautions are not taken. Here’s why we urge you not to take on your own extensive landscaping and lighting projects without the help of a professional.
Unexpected issues can arise.
Have you ever noticed that in HGTV shows when the renovation process begins, an unexpected find or problem arises which halts the process? That’s not for dramatic effect. It’s not uncommon for unexpected problems to arise with any renovation or redesign, and landscaping is not excluded. At Gurley's, we can anticipate, prevent, and solve problems. While it may not require an expert to add new mulch to your flower beds, you definitely don’t want to tackle issues with water and sewage lines or city ordinances without the help of a professional. Relying on landscaping experts who have the equipment and expertise to prevent, treat, and solve problems as they arise is truly worth the investment.
Design disasters can devalue your property.
Sometimes, tackling a DIY lighting job can leave your outdoor space looking a little off. At Gurley's, we can help you create the most visually appealing design. Our team of landscape and lighting design experts have helped thousands of Memphians and Mid-South residents create the outdoor space of their dreams. We know how to install lighting that highlights the best features of your home and landscaping that complements your property.
Electrical mishaps can give you a shock.
We strongly advise against installing any sort of electrical equipment or lighting without the help of an electrician or lighting design installation professional. Working with electrical components can be dangerous and life-threatening if you don’t take the proper precautions. Don’t put yourself at risk. Hire a professional to tackle these.
