Well placed lighting can elevate your outdoor space to the next level. Having a professional company come out to complete the project will make all the difference in the finished results. If you’re considering a lighting installation Palm City, here are the steps that you can expect from start to finish.
Make a plan
The very first thing you’ll need to do before work can get started is to sit with your landscaping company and devise a plan for the lighting installation Palm City project. Decide which parts of your outdoor space need lighting, what types of lighting you’ll be incorporating, and evaluate other possible features for inclusion in the plan. Once you’ve made a plan, you’ll know how many lights you’ll need and you can begin choosing actual light fixtures for the outdoor space.
Pull a permit
Depending on the scope of the job, you might very well need a permit to take on your lighting project. Most often, a permit is required for big jobs where a lot of dirt will fly. If your plans are much smaller, you can likely get by without one. It’s best to ask your professional lighting installer what to do about permitting. You might also need to enlist the services of a licensed electrician.
The materials you will need will depend entirely on your landscaping lighting plan. You might need rock or stone, hardscaping, additional dirt or sand, wire, outlets, and more. Confer with your landscaping company on a materials list and then determine if you will source those materials, or if you’d rather the company source them for you.
Prep the space
Once you have all the decisions made, and materials in hand, the prepping will start. The plan might require digging, trenches, removing debris, trimming existing landscaping, moving flowerbeds, or creating pathways. Getting the prep right will ensure that your finished product looks amazing and inviting.
