Landscape Lighting in Huntersville, NC

Your landscape plays an important role in the look of your home. Proper landscape lighting keeps your outdoor space well-lit and highlights your home’s beauty. When you don’t have quality landscape lighting, you’re doing your home a disservice. Updating your landscape lighting in Huntersville, NC can be a big project, but when you partner with LiveWire Electrical, we’ll help you every step of the way.

Let’s take a look at the Johnson family, who recently moved into their new home in Birkdale Village. After realizing their outdoor space was too dark at night, they called LiveWire Electrical to discuss landscape lighting solutions. Here’s how LiveWire Electrical was able to help the Johnson family by transforming their outdoor space.

A New Home With Bad Lightingsingle-family-home-huntersville-nc

The Johnsons finally found their dream home in the Birkdale Village neighborhood in Huntersville, NC. After going through the home-buying process and finally moving in, it was time to host a housewarming party. A few nights before the party, they noticed that their backyard was too dark and they wouldn’t be able to host an outdoor party as they had originally planned.

Not knowing what to do, they decided to give us a call to help with their outdoor lighting. We know how important it is to have the right lighting for special occasions, so we set up an inspection as quickly as we could.

A LiveWire Electrical Inspection

We were able to go out to the Johnson home and inspect the outdoor area the next evening and found that the backyard was very dark, with only a small overhead light over their back door. The backyard was beautiful, with pristine landscaping and plenty of room to host a party.

After inspecting their outdoor space, we decided that a combination of path lights and spotlights would highlight the best parts of the Johnson’s backyard. By focusing on both the architecture of the house as well as the landscaping, we were able to provide unique lighting solutions that truly transformed the space.

To begin, we mapped out where the path lights should go so that they were the most effective. It’s easy to add too much light to an area, and path lights are a great way to accent an area without becoming too overwhelming. We used a 10-gauge wire to connect the main path light line to their 600-watt transformer, allowing for additional lights in the future if they want them.

After cutting 6-inch divots into the ground to run the 12-gauge connecting wires, we ran the line and installed the lights every 10-feet along the path. Weather-proof wire connectors and outlet protectors keep outdoor lighting systems protected from the elements. Modern homes are often fitted with GFCI outlets, and fortunately for the Johnsons, their home was ready to go with safe GFCI outlets outdoors.

In just a few hours, we were able to install path and spotlights throughout their yard, allowing them to host the housewarming party for their friends and family.
