5 Steps to a Successful Landscape Lighting System

Relative Home Systems Helps You Transform Your Outdoor Spaces

5 Steps to a Successful Landscape Lighting System

Outdoor lighting is one of the most important components for your Memorial, Texas home’s style and functionality. Not only does it enhance your security by eliminating darkness around your home, but it also makes your outdoor spaces more livable, valuable and beautiful. For this reason, it’s important that you invest in a professional landscape lighting system that is able to meet your family’s unique needs. These are the steps our team takes to ensure you have a reliable, easy-to-use system.

1. Finding Out What You Want

No two homes or families are the same. For all our installations, the process begins with a discovery meeting. We meet with you to find out which areas you want to be part of your landscape lighting system and how you expect to use them. This will help us come up with the proper design layout, equipment and control solution for your system.


2. Installing a Throughout Wiring Framework

Once we’ve come up with the best design possible for your system, it’s time to lay down its foundation. As low-voltage wiring experts, we not only know the best wires to use but also the best placement. All wires are kept hidden from view to protect your home’s aesthetics while our expert installation ensures a clear line of communication between your lighting fixtures and your control solution.


3. Investing in the Right Equipment

We partner with Coastal Source, a company that specializes in outdoor lighting and audio. They offer a variety of products for your landscape lighting system, including bullet lights - which are perfect for ambient or architectural lighting - and path lights that help you illuminate important walkways. These fixtures are built to withstand the elements and can be hooked up to your Lutron or Crestron control solution. 


4. Creating a Comprehensive Control Solution

The control solution is where we shine. What good is a landscape lighting system if you don’t have an easy way to manage it? We recommend going with a control solution that gives you access from a touchpad, tablet or smartphone. You can also incorporate scenes, sensors and schedules for a more hands-off approach. Depending on how you want to use your system, we design a custom solution for you.


5. Adding Memorable Entertainment Spaces

One of the biggest benefits of a landscape lighting system is that it makes your outdoor spaces more livable. You don’t have to rush inside when the sun sets. We can install an outdoor audio system to enjoy some music under the stars or an outdoor Seura TV so you can invite friends for some burgers or steaks to watch the College World Series.
