Outdoor, exterior landscape lighting symbolizes a maturation of modern landscape design. It enhances the ambiance, extends the space usability and improves safety. At Rhyno's Landscaping of Halifax, our goal is to provide high quality, energy efficient, reliable and trouble free functionality, with color changing capabilities, textures and highlights that enhance the beauty of your space. Beautifully transform your space by highlighting architectural features and landscape details.
Light Emitting Diodes (LED) Outdoor lighting is the most efficient and reliable lighting option. Rhyno's Landscaping offers quality LEDs that are properly encased in water resistant, high quality aluminium alloy housings with corrosion resistant coating. These aspects are crucial in the longevity of your system since the equipment is exposed to constant ground moisture and other environmental conditions. Compared to inexpensive fixtures, which are certain to disappoint, our extended warrantied products guarantee beauty and customers’ peace of mind.
Choosing low voltage LED (which uses a transformer to minimize the voltage output) saves you money on your outdoor lighting installation. Not only is it more cost effective to run the lights, using dramatically less energy and lasting longer than store bought lighting, you will be saving money by having our trained staff safely install the low voltage systems; no need to spend extra on a professional electrician. The goal is to install a trouble-free lighting system that exceeds your expectations for many years to come!
A basic landscape lighting budget starts with path lighting which allows you to safely walk through and enjoy your landscape at night. Most path lighting designs have the lights located along the edge of the path. Other alternatives that make your path safe and beautiful include: lights inset between the stones of the pathway, set back lights, down-lighting, and accent lighting.
Deck lighting, much like path lighting, can help safely guide you up and down your deck while also providing great light for evening gatherings. Step lighting uses small fixtures and line LED lighting to cast a soft and glare free light across steps, decks and landings. Accent lighting can also play an important role in making a deck look and feel spectacular.
Directional lighting is great for creating extra contrast and is useful for spatial compositions in which shadows and silhouettes play a significant role. The creation of shadow puppets from shrubs and trees can be achieved with attentive planning and pruning of plants along with correct placement of your directional lights.
This technique is utilized to showcase particular garden features such as statues, monuments and signage. It is also practical to place lights near places where tasks may need to be performed: outdoor plugs, taps, pool or hot tub controls, storage bins, BBQ’s...
Lights can provide more effects when brightness and color can be changed and controlled. Explore lighting that can be adjusted to reflect different holidays and even tuned to work with music so your lighting accents reflect the joyful times of year!
Ponds, waterfalls and fountains look great during the day, let Rhyno’s landscaping make them look great at night too! Transform your water feature into a dynamic nighttime scene of breathtaking beauty with vibrant underwater landscape lighting. Pond lighting will take your feature to the next level of WOW!
Up-lighting techniques place lights close to the base of a feature to bring out its unique texture. It is perfect on an old tree with complex and interesting bark, or a stone wall with lots of relief, since it brings out light and dark areas at the same time. Use landscape up-lighting to showcase the magnificent textures around your yard.
Create a moonlit effect by placing your LEDs downward to enhance the lighting on a particular feature or area. By increasing the area you illuminate, down-lighting techniques can provide an alternative approach to lighting paths or driveways; an approach that avoids the creation of a runway effect.
