We completed a project in Loudoun county. This is a a very typical Northern Virginia home. We designed a soft even wash across the front of the house. We added a light on the red plum tree in front. We also decided to add one light on the side of the house in a small tree. It is always surprising what a difference one light can make in the right location. This one light brought a lot of the fullness of the property.
Many times people only ask us to light the front of the house. I almost always suggest adding a few fixtures around the side in order to help round out the property do that it does not look one dimensional.
We also added a few path lights around the patio in back and a couple of up lights on the trees in the backyard. The dramatic impact outdoor lighting created provided more curb appeal to this home than anything else our customers did.
