We recently undertook a project in San Antonio where the client was interested in the lighting aspects of showing the home in beautiful light but also wanted the feeling of added security. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of San Antonio came up with a design that works for both. When the project was complete the client was over joyed and stated that when they drive up to the house at night, it feels great to see their beautiful house and be able to walk securely from the driveway to the front door. There are many benefits of outdoor lighting, beauty and security are two of them.

Patio lighting San Antonio TX

Here, we combined landscape and patio outdoor lighting to create a spa-like escape for these homeowners.

Have you ever wished your landscape looked as if it came from the pages of a home and garden magazine? Or ever found yourself longing for a gently illuminated landscape that brought your plants to life in the evening? Even though upscale outdoor lighting such as elegant landscape lighting seems out of reach, it isn’t. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of San Antonio and the Hill Country is the area’s premiere upscale outdoor lighting company. We specialize in turning your landscape into the space you have always dreamed of; magical, ethereal and memorable in the evening. The benefits of professional landscape lighting extend past the aesthetically pleasing atmosphere it creates on your property. Here is a  look at the four (4) major benefits of adding landscape lighting…

  • Top Four (4) Benefits of Adding Landscape Lighting to Your Home:

1) Landscape Lighting for Security

Burglars typically decide which homes to rob from their vantage point in the street. They look for easily accessible homes they feel they can enter and exit under a veil of darkness, without being observed by a passersby. If your San Antonio or Hill Country home is well lit, criminals are more likely to pass it by, since an attempted break-in on your property would require them to step into the light, leaving them vulnerable, exposed and more likely to be caught!

Our fixtures are made with quality materials you can see, and feel.

Landscape lighting such as adding path lights to garden paths and sidewalks aids in the safety of your evening landscape.

2) Landscape Lighting for Safety

Walking around in the dark outside your San Antonio home can be hazardous. It’s easy to trip or fall when you can’t see your own feet especially after a spring or summer storm or windy conditions. In this way, landscape lighting improves safety for you, your family and friends walking around outside at night. Landscape lighting can even enhance your pet’s evening trips outdoors allowing you a full view of the spaces your pet frequents in time to avert a potential mishap with a wild animal, or debris that could pose a threat.

3) Landscape Lighting for Increased Property Value

Curb appeal! Did you know that homes with outdoor lighting generally sell for more than those that do not?  Savvy home buyers recognize the many benefits of outdoor lights when comparing different homes. This allows you to set a higher asking price if your home boasts this feature. Remember, landscape lights installed by an outdoor lighting professional ensure proper installation and placement delivering the best aesthetics. This is just one of the reasons why investing in a professionally installed system is well worth the investment.

Outdoor lighting gives you a chance to show off your carefully designed paths, gardens and natural areas, colorful plantings and areas of interest within the landscape, even when it’s pitch black outside.

Make 2014 the year you improve your home and landscape through professional outdoor lighting

San Antonio TX outdoor lighting

Our beneficial outdoor lighting is the New Year’s resolution that is easy to keep!

We are now well into the New Year and have put away the reminders of the holidays and are on our way to improving our lifestyles, our habits and our homes. Many of the resolutions that we made in honor of the New Year may have already came to a screeching halt and many of you may already be feeling the benefits of living a healthier lifestyle.

Improving the aesthetic of your home and landscape is easier than you may think. By simply adding a professionally designed and installed outdoor lighting you can increase the safety, security and curb appeal of your home and property dramatically. Here is a glimpse at just a few of the many ways you can gain the most benefit at your residence…

  • Safety – Outdoor lighting adds safety to your home and landscape in a variety of ways. Lighting walkways and paths ensures your guests are able to navigate these areas safely. This includes making paths you frequent within the landscape other than just the front sidewalks visible as well, such as paths that lead to outdoor spaces like pools, patios and other recreational areas. You can also increase safety and beauty through zone lighting. Zone lighting is used to illuminate areas of your yard and landscape for nighttime use. For example, when you spend time outdoors with family and friends, you’ll need adequate outdoor lighting to illuminate your landscape areas. Zone lighting is an effective way to light a patio, deck, garden, pool area or outdoor seating area. For enhanced safety we also suggest illuminating sidewalks, driveways, garages and entryways to keep your landscape safe after dark

A well-lit home is a safer home.

  • Peace of Mind – A well-lit landscape and home promotes a feeling of security, alertness and proof you care about maintaining your property. When you keep your outdoor areas illuminated, you present a feeling of  involvement and pride in your home. Outdoor lighting reduces the dark areas present around your home and promotes  a sense that your are aware of your surroundings, this helps deter would-be criminals from trespassing onto your property. Outdoor lighting can maintain your peace of mind as a homeowner in knowing you are adding another layer of security to your home.
  • Beauty  – The beauty that outdoor lighting provides is reason enough to celebrate year round! A professional outdoor lighting design encompasses all the power of curb appeal by beautifying your home and landscape, and can even change your mood.

A well-lit home exudes with a sense that the homeowner takes pride and is aware of his/her surroundings.

  • LED Outdoor Lighting – Over half of our outdoor lighting installations here at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of San Antonio and the Hill Country are LED. LED outdoor lighting is more energy-efficient and leaves less of an impact on the environment than other types of outdoor lighting.  It can save a homeowner thousands in energy costs over the LED’s lifetime. In addition, since they contain no glass components, they are not vulnerable to vibration or breakage like conventional bulbs and make the perfect lighting for outdoor applications. LED lights are also free of toxic chemicals. Most conventional fluorescent bulbs contain a multitude of materials such as mercury that are dangerous for the environment and make disposal dangerous. The absence of these materials will help you reduce your carbon footprint by up to a third. LED is safer in many regards too, because it generates light from cool burning technology, and it uses less wire to install properly.

Most people view the holiday season as a time when the impetus of outdoor lighting design is strictly geared toward holiday lighting.  It is true that outdoor holiday lighting can add beauty to your home and landscape and enliven the holiday season, but you can also benefit from moving ahead with other genres of outdoor lighting as well. If you are looking for one of the best investments in outdoor lighting to gain long-term benefits and still enhance your holiday home, landscape lighting is among the best choice.

The possibilities that professional landscape lighting encompass are endless.

Our outdoor lighting brings this home to life in the evening.

The front of your home and especially your home’s front entrance is one of the most frequented areas of your property. We are moving into the season where a dark front entrance can not only be a safety hazard, it also fails to promote a warm, inviting atmosphere. This is very important  as we move into the time of year when more guests will  be coming to call. The fundamentals of creating a warm and welcoming entrance at your humble abode begin with three key elements.  These elements are often used when creating a more inviting home and landscape for other genres of home beautification. We use these same key strategies when adding professional lighting to your home as well.

The three dynamics of proper outdoor lighting to promote curb appeal include:

  • The Vehicular Experience – This dynamic serves as the first impression for those who pass your home in the evening and guests who pull into the driveway. Proper outdoor lighting will improve the overall aesthetic impact of your home starting the moment your home becomes visible. The vehicular experience can be enhanced by landscape lighting, architectural and facade lighting.

  • The Pedestrian Experience – Once you have made a lasting impression to those that enter onto your property, the next step is promoting a safe and beautiful trip to your front door. The best way to ensure these key elements are met with your outdoor lighting design is to add pathway lighting. Our pathway lighting consists of using soft washes of light to gently illuminate your walkways, sidewalks and paths that lead your guests from the driveway or parking area of your property to the front door.

  • The Entry Experience – What makes an outdoor lighting design exceptional is how it greets people through a series of experiences. The culmination of these experiences reach a fever pitch as your guests make their way to your front door. The front door is the most important part of your home’s front facade.Every decision made should be considered for its support and accent; this includes the addition of focal point lighting, architectural lighting and even porch lighting.   If there are steps up to this entry-level, make sure they are properly illuminated.

Path lighting and entry lighting provide a secure entrance to the heart of this San Antonio home.

A professional outdoor lighting design encompasses all the power of curb appeal and can even change your mood. When you look at your home at night do you notice the lighting fixture or the illumination it exudes? Many homeowners think professional outdoor lighting is beyond their reach; this is certainly not the case. We can properly light your home’s exterior, including your home’s entrance, and landscape on a budget. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of San Antonio and the Hill Country can complete your outdoor lighting design in phases that will accommodate your needs and budget as well.  Just as the old saying goes “you get what you pay for”, our lights will endure the test of time and will last for many years to come.

Landscape and garden lighting can extend the hours you can enjoy your garden.

After the holidays wind down many people set their sights on looking forward to not only the prospect of a new and improved year, but also a new spring. The appeal of springtime is universal whether you live in the far reaches of Alaska, or along the sunny shores of Hawaii. Spring signifies a renewal of the earth and presents us with a flurry of new colors to enjoy in our gardens and throughout our landscapes. San Antonio residents are lucky enough to experience the beauty of spring throughout the year, because of the absence of frigid temperatures and a constant warm climate. San Antonio’s average annual median temperature is about 70 degrees, perfect for planning and planting.  Spring is still a time when San Antonians cultivate and plan their gardens, borders and other additions to the landscape. With this in mind, planning on how to showcase those new plantings, as well as existing ones, is just as important a detail as deciding what shrubs and flowers to place in these areas.
