All homeowners are a little bit like kids this time of year. The anticipation of the beginning of summer brings out this quality in even the staunchest personalities. Instead of wishing for ice cream trucks and catching fire flies in jars, adults long for outdoor spaces that can transport them to a state of relaxation. From versatile backyard decks, to poolside areas built to soothe all the senses. There is much to be said about having that one special spot in your landscape that you can enjoy all season long an escape to at the end of a hard day. Imagine that space with the addition of outdoor lighting. Imagine being able to extend the hours you can enjoy your outdoor oasis and all the possibilities adding light would bring. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of San Antonio urges you to visualize your favorite outdoor space under the romantic illumination of outdoor lighting. With the summer season close at hand, we have compiled a list of the top 5 outdoor spaces that benefit from the addition of outdoor lighting.
- Decks – Decks are the most all American outdoor spaces around. Today’s decks range from simple to over the top designs which beg for enhancements such as lighting. Not only will deck lighting create ambiance in your deck space, it will also make it safer to enjoy during the evening. Evening social endeavors such as barbecues and outdoor dinner parties have no curfew or time limits to the good times when outdoor lighting is involved. Our expert lighting designs include stair tread lighting, post and deck rail lighting. We also accentuate the custom features of your deck with specialized lighting such as lighting under bench seating and above grilling and cooking areas. We can finish out your deck lighting by adding landscape and path lighting around the perimeter of your deck to allow easy navigation from the yard to your deck, which also enhances the landscaping around your deck too.
- Patios – In the same way deck lighting enhances the beauty of your deck, patio lighting does the same. Patios are generally centrally located within the landscape. Patios can be a part of an outdoor living combination area, or placed as a secret refuge within the landscape. No matter where your particular patio is located, we can add lighting that will enhance the function and beauty of your patio and the landscape surrounding it.
Paths and walks – This one is important for safety’s sake. Trying to travel from your house to your outdoor spaces in the dark is dangerous. Limited visibility and the chance of coming into contact with a snake or fallen branch can present a dangerous scenario when trying to reach your destination in the dark. Path lighting increases visibility and opens up the landscape around it. Gently lit paths that extend from your home to your outdoor oasis destination make utilizing these spaces effortless and worry free any time of the evening. Professional path lighting also delivers a mesmerizing effect within the landscape.
Pools – What better way to heighten the senses than light dancing off of tranquil water? Pool lighting is a must for homeowners who want to get the most out of their pool and underwater space. Lighting will allow you to enjoy that “midnight swim” with peace of mind, and will also allow extended hours of enjoyment by the pool and in the pool. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of San Antonio and the Hill Country make sure to illuminate the areas around your pool as well. This combination of landscape and pool lighting creates an outdoor oasis setting in your own backyard.
Gardens– Our mild temperatures make gardening a year round affair, but especially during the late spring and early summer. As temperatures rise blooming perennials are at their peak color during this time. What better way to showcase the bold hues and lush greens than by adding garden and landscape lighting to further your garden enjoyment. Certain types of plants and flowers are in full bloom in the evening as opposed to the day; with garden lighting you can enjoy endless splendor in first person.
