The magic of outdoor lighting doesn’t have to end when it is time to put away the Christmas lights, learn how we can keep it alive year round

Loveliest holiday lighting ever

This home is the epitome of both professional outdoor lighting, and professional outdoor holiday lighting.

The holidays are a magical time of year. From the feeling you get when you pull up a driveway lined with trees lit in the festive colors of the season, to riding through the neighborhood and slowing down to linger in the enchantment of a beautifully adorned home all aglow with elegant white Christmas lights. This is the stuff that Christmas memories are made of. The ethereal beauty that holiday lighting is famous for.

With the holidays soon coming to an end, the lights will soon come down and lay in wait until next year and with this many miss the sparkle and shine that holiday lighting adds to their lives. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of San Antonio and The Hill Country want to remind you that the magic doesn’t have to end. Outdoor lighting can provide endearing beauty and enhanced safety and security throughout the entire year. Professional outdoor lighting can bring back the magic for every season, and every month of the year.

Outdoor Lighting genres such as water feature lighting add magic to your home and landscape year round.

One of the most memorable elements outdoor lighting such as landscape lighting, tree lighting and even architectural lighting will provide is a stage for the changing seasons. As your landscape changes, your outdoor lighting will be there to illuminate each drama as it unfolds. This can include lighting that emphasizes a perennial flower garden that changes with each  colored bloom and bud, or a line of flowering trees that transform from green to whimsical pink blooms from one season to the next.  Even a climbing ornamental vine that was lovingly planted near the entrance to your home will change personalities from spring to fall.Your architectural lighting will be there so you won’t miss a single scene of the action. Even though your outdoor lighting stays in the same place, the area it illuminates evolves, as does the visual imagery it illuminates.

See how outdoor lighting can add magic to your home and landscape for all seasons?

The benefit of outdoor lighting doesn’t end with “just another pretty face”. It also enhances the safety and security of your home and landscape. By adding outdoor lighting you create a more secure area to enjoy outdoor activities. Security lighting such as path lighting can even makes the trip to your front door more secure because you no longer have to muddle around at a dark entrance to find your keys. By adding lighting you introduce ease and convenience as a way of life. Research also indicates that outdoor lighting reduces the chances of falling victim to crime because a well- lit home is less likely to become the target of unsavory activity. Burglars will pass by a home that cannot  facilitate their activity under the veil of darkness.

Fiesta lighting can add whimsy and life to that hard to light, or forgotten spot in your landscape

globe lighting San Antonio

The magic of globe lighting and permanent festival lighting can be enjoyed throughout the year.

With all the emphasis placed on the many benefits of outdoor lighting you have to keep in mind that the scale or genre of that outdoor lighting doesn’t have to be grand to be effective. Maybe you have a spot within your landscape that is difficult to light using conventional outdoor lighting methods. You might even have that one spot in your yard, or adjacent to your home that is unused, and overlooked because you are the only one that has the vision to see it as a diamond in the rough. For these type of scenarios, or if you just want to escape from the norm. Fiesta (or festival) lighting and globe lighting might just be the answer.

Courtyard during the day before we added the festival lighting

You might have already seen this type of lighting used in commercial applications while visiting the patio of some quaint tavern or bistro and remember the impression the lighting made on your entire dining experience. That same mood lighting used in many successful upscale eateries can be yours for the asking, right in your very own backyard setting.

Courtyard festival lighting

The addition of permanent festival lighting made a huge impact on this courtyard space and the manner in which the homeowners now use it.

Festival lighting does deliver a viable light source to improve function in a specified area, but more than anything fiesta-style and globe lighting can help paint a picture of the mood you want to convey with your space.  Permanent festival lighting is tough enough to weather all seasons and can become the highlight of your outdoor lighting design simply because it induces whimsy and fun at every age.

Green Globe

Globe lighting is available in a rainbow of colors to suit any taste.

By using commercial grade lighting products and using a cable to support the weight of the wiring components we can ensure the safety and the integrity of the system over long spans. Permanent fiesta lighting is available in white and colored light hues. We can even instill the use of unique globe lights as part of lighting your unique space.

With the Halloween season quickly approaching could you imagine hosting the neighborhood autumn celebration on your covered patio, or other outdoor space with these lights strung amid the decorations and tempting treats for all to enjoy? Having the capability to use these lights in time for the upcoming holiday would definitely be a unique way to showcase the occasion, and after the party is over you will still be able to take advantage of the endless possibilities having such a unique, and distinct lighting installation will ensue. From outdoor parties, or just enjoying the evening over an outdoor dinner for two will take on new meaning under the illumination of permanent festival and globe lighting.

Lighting Texas palms trees creates a paradise in your evening landscape.

San Antonio palm tree lighting creates ambiance

Palm trees expertly lit at the entrance of this home create elegance and curb appeal.

San Antonio is the home of a rare gem of a tree which is only suitable for certain climates. Fortunately, in this part of Texas the Palm tree thrives. The shape, growing pattern and branching make it a perfect specimen for outdoor tree lighting. Many different types of palms will grow successfully in our region, but the Texas Sabal palm and blue palm are the only palms native to Texas.

Using palm trees within the border of your landscape adds depth and drama, especially with the addition of landscape and tree lighting.

With their majestic, fan-like canopy the palm tree comes alive under the glow of outdoor lighting. The palm has the ability to turn an average landscape by day into a tropical oasis with the addition of tree lighting.

This homes entrance is lined with native palms, we were able to add soft washes of strategically planned lighting to not only light the driveway but focus on the beauty of the palms as well.

You may wonder just how we create such a surreal atmosphere by lighting palm trees in your landscape. The answer is a proven recipe of up lighting and down lighting to create a soft wash of light. The key is to accentuate the unique shape, height and form of the palm, without overpowering it. Professional tree lighting uses technique and training to assess each tree on an individual basis, making it stand out, but no overpowering it.

San Antonio pier and dock lighting that no longer leaves your property’s most prominent feature in the dark

boweres-lake-home

The addition of lighting to your dock or pier adds beauty and safety to your lakeside playground.

If you are one of the fortunate homeowners lucky enough to live by the lake, or by a pond then you know the beauty that ensues looking into your property’s most prominent feature. Having the backdrop of a large water feature such as a lake or pond changes the entire aspect of your home and your property. It would be a travesty to not be able to take in the lovely views of the water at night. Adding outdoor lighting to your pier or dock can remedy the many dark evenings spent staring into the void.

Not only does lakefront living bring on reason for adding light, being able to utilize the lake or pond at night gives way to many evening recreational opportunities and is a great reason to add outdoor lighting “down by the lake”. For example, your grandson is down for the weekend and he wants nothing more than to learn how to fish. The best time to fish is usually around dusk. Having the capacity to safely fish off your pier at night with your grandson is enough reason alone to install  lakeside outdoor lighting. Not only will this tender moment not have to be cut short because of nightfall, you can linger in the memory you are creating without the worry of not being able to see what is around you or have enough light to make it safely back to the house. You may even get that big bite you have been waiting on and not miss your grandson reeling in his first fish.

deck-pier-light

Deck lights are wonderful to use on a dock or pier.

There are so many reasons that outdoor lighting on your dock or pier make sense. From aesthetic appeal to safety, to time spent outdoor that would otherwise not happen. In general, lighting a pier or dock can have it’s obstacles but the benefits make it worth overcoming those obstacles.  Most of the time the area you are lighting is farther away from the house, and requires innovative design to achieve the desired effect for such a setting. We can make adding lighting and coming up with innovative designs easy with our experience and knowledge of dock and pier lighting.  We recommend in many cases adding subtle path lighting on the descent to the lake for added ambiance and security. This will allow for safe travel to the dock or pier, then we like to use fixtures on the dock or pier that will emit a soft wash of light instead of blaring light. We achieve this through careful fixture selection for your individual dock or pier and in some instances we add frosted lenses to minimize the glare from the bulb. All of this adds up to the perfect illumination to enjoy your lakeside haven at night.

Dock lighting San Antonio

Fishing anyone? Dock lighting by Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of San Antonio makes it possible into the wee hours if desired.

To add even more convenience Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of San Antonio can program your dock lighting into the lighting control automation where the lights by the lake will automatically come on at dusk and turn off at dawn. You will never have to flip a switch unless you want to , and when the occasion arises to spend some time with friends and family down by the water’s edge at night, the lights have already been cut on for you.
