What comes to mind when you think of Christmas magic? Is it the scent of gingerbread mingled with the subtle aroma of a freshly cut Christmas tree? Maybe it is an avalanche of brightly colored gifts adorned with ribbons and bows? No matter what causes you to relish in the holiday season, the beauty of holiday decorating is high on everyone’s list as a way to create magic during this time of year. An important part of holiday decorating includes the exterior of your home. The outside of your home is the part that neighbors and onlookers see and no matter how beautiful the interior of your home is during the holidays having a lifeless, dark landscape can make you appear to be the Scrooge of the neighborhood. The outside of your home also welcomes friends and family to your door during the holidays. Outdoor Christmas lighting is the most effective and dramatic way to make a statement and add the spirit of the holidays to your home’s exterior.
There are many genres of outdoor holiday lighting. Roofline lighting and adding lighted touches to your homes facade and architecture are great mediums to use in any holiday lighting display, but the most dramatic lighting effects can be seen through the techniques used in holiday tree lighting. Lighting trees and shrubbery within the landscape is enchanting. There is more to tree lighting than just assembling a string of lights to a tree and turning them on. Holiday tree lighting is an art. Choosing the right tree to light, and using the right holiday lighting elements to light it can make or break the effect of your lighting design. Here are a just a handful of the holiday tree lighting techniques we use to create holiday magic in the landscape of homeowners here in San Antonio.
Our newest introduction this season is snowfall lighting. This unique play on holiday tree lighting emulates the look of falling snow through a special lighting technique.
This tree lighting technique is called tree wrapping. By wrapping lights around the trunk of the tree it creates a hauntingly beautiful effect. This is especially effective when used to line tree lines of driveways and along the edges of your landscape.
Adding lights to evergreens within your landscape gives your holiday lighting display a classic, traditional Christmas feel. This genre of lighting proves that the most beautiful tree of the season may be as close as outside your front door.
Holiday tree wrapping also works great in commercial holiday lighting displays by adding a charming beauty and elegance to any location.
Even if you don’t have a tree, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of San Antonio can create one with our lighting artistry and techniques. This unique residence has a pond located on the property and we created a tree of lights as the island of the pond, truly breathtaking.
