Project Highlight: Gorgeous Mediterranean Style Home in Holladay


Recently we finished adding landscape lighting to this gorgeous Mediterranean style home in Holladay. This home gave us plenty of beauty to highlight and a great landscape to provide safety and functionality to the property as well. We had so much fun bringing light to this home; explore the ways we did below!



We love showcasing the beauty and amazing details in the architecture of a home. The most common way we do this is with up lights. On this particular home, we had so much beauty to highlight with up lights not only with the architecture of the home, but the landscaping surrounding.

We love the way the landscape casts shadows on the architecture of the home. Adding these up lights to both the landscape and the architecture created a very well-balanced ambiance to the property while at the same time providing the homeowner with an element of security.

This path also greatly benefitted from both up and down lighting! The gorgeous rock walkway needed not only to be illuminated so that those who walk at night could trek it safely, but simply to be showcased at night as well.

Since this walkway was lined with amazing landscaping we were able to bring light by incorporating up and down lighting fixtures on the surrounding trees.

This backyard landscape called for downlighting. Since it had an abundance of established trees, we were able to create a very natural moonlight effect on the pool deck and yard. We do this by mounting the downlight way up in the tree so that the light casts downward in a soft yet effective way.

We love when we are able to incorporate downlighting into a landscape lighting project because it provides a very ambient atmosphere to the landscape.



When looking out at the backyard from the house, you can see how adding landscape lighting can eliminate any dark holes that lure in the back of the property. Incorporating lighting in any property provides a first line of defense when it comes to security.

We’ve said it before, but a well-lit home is a large deterrent to trespassers! Learn more about the safety benefits of landscape lighting here.
