The landscape lighting industry was the first to embrace LED technology. Now, as the light emitting diodes themselves have improved in color temperature options, higher CRI’s (color rendering index) and dimmability it’s time to rethink how we light our exterior spaces, using this new box of crayons. Light layering is still the cornerstone of a well thought out design. Blending task, accent, decorative and ambient sources creates outdoor rooms which expands the homeowners’ living and entertaining space beyond the four walls.
- Participants will learn how to apply light layering to a landscape project; combining task, accent, decorative and ambient sources to create a cohesive and alluring design.
- Color temperature and CRI (color rendering index) will be explained in detail and applied to the best choices for the illumination of foliage, man-made & natural materials and water features.
- How to best explain the difference between security lighting l and landscape lighting to clients without alienating them.
- How to create an inviting curb appeal for a home by adding breadth and verticality to a property through the use of lighting.
