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.

If you are interested in bringing out the beauty in your home, want added security, or both, contact us at (210)-971-8759 or email: sanantonio@outdoorlights.com

A look at how magical San Antonio evenings begin with Outdoor Lighting Perspectives

San Antonio beautiful outdoor lighting

We provide beautiful professional, outdoor lighting for your San Antonio home and landscape.

As you peruse the pages of your favorite home or garden magazine you will probably notice the prevalence of tantalizing images that show homes and landscapes with outdoor lighting. You may think that creating that same type of nighttime magic at your home isn’t within your reach. However, nothing could be farther from the truth. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of San Antonio has opened up a world of possibilities to homeowners with our professional outdoor lighting designs enabling you to not only dream, but live the dream too!

Recently, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Augusta  filmed the transformation of one of their client’s properties taking it from beautiful by day to pure enchantment at night. These videos serve as a perfect example of how Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of San Antonio can transform your property too. It all begins with our consultation, take a look…

When most people think of lighting the outside of their homes, they usually just consider safety and security. Important considerations, however, lighting can be incorporated into an overall landscape plan that also adds to the overall beauty of your property. The lighting of steps, paths and walkways will make the grounds of your property safer; the lighting of the home façade, trees, and outdoor living spaces will add significantly to the aesthetics and make the home more inviting.  And there is the obvious benefit of added security by eliminating dark areas of the yard.

Most people don’t realize this until we add lighting, but the backyard is a whole new room that they haven’t explored fully. You can have the option of going  beyond that light bulb at the doorway and create a storybook setting at your house too! Good lighting can bring magical qualities to any setting. You can rediscover the perimeter of your property, make it fun to entertain friends and family at night again and highlight points of interest, such as sculptures, fountains or even trees within your yard. Take a look at this  “preview”of  how the addition of outdoor lighting can enhance our property  as we reveal what is involved in a  nighttime demonstration …

Once you have experienced the magic of a nighttime demonstration, here is an  in-depth look at our quality installation process…

Here in San Antonio and the Hill Country, July all the way into September is some of our warmest times of the year. The climate sometimes means homeowners are only able to comfortably utilize their outdoor living spaces and yards for leisure during the evening hours, when the sun has set.  In addition many people work or play till long after the sun goes down and they often don’t have time to enjoy their backyard until the evening hours. With the addition of outdoor lighting, your landscape and outdoor living spaces are instantly transformed into usable space. Take a look at the big reveal of this transformation and imagine you and your family in the starring role…

  • With the summer outdoor living season underway, we have put together a list of the top 5 outdoor areas that benefit from the addition of outdoor lighting.
Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of San Antonio deck lighting

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of San Antonio deck lighting.

#1) Decks – Decks are the most all- American of all outdoor spaces. 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.

#2) 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.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of San Antonio water feature lighting

#3) Pools and outdoor water features – What better way to heighten the senses than light dancing off of tranquil water? Pool and water feature lighting is a must for homeowners who want to get the most out of their pool and underwater space. Our installations include Koi ponds, waterfalls, and fountains as well. 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. It will also allow you to take in the beauty and serenity of your water feature against the night sky. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of San Antonio and the Hill Country make sure to illuminate the areas around your pool and water feature as well. This combination of landscape and romantic lighting create an outdoor oasis setting in your own backyard.

#4) Gardens– Our mild temperatures allow homeowners to partake in gardening as a year-round affair, but especially during the late spring and early summer. As temperatures rise blooming perennials are at their peak color and fragrance during this time. What better way to showcase the vibrant colors than by adding garden and landscape lighting to further your garden enjoyment. Certain types of plants and flowers will provide even more benefit as they are in full bloom in the evening as opposed to the day; with garden lighting you can enjoy endless splendor in first person as the moment unfolds.

#5) Paths and walkways – Outdoor lighting is a wonderful way to make a grand entrance – but, this one is also 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 wildlife such as 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. The finishing touch to your outdoor oasis!

Top Four Reasons for Adding Landscape Lighting to Your San Antonio Landscape

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.

4) And of Course, Landscape Lighting for Beauty

Our recipe of superb placement, quality fixtures and soft washes of light enhance the curb appeal of your landscape and home and makes it stand out among the darkened homes on your street. 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.

If you are looking for an outdoor lighting application that will give you the most enjoyment and benefit from your investment, consider landscape lighting.

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.
