National Garden Month Has Charlotteans Digging in the Dirt!

Charlotte Garden LightingOutdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte is supporting National Garden Month by helping Charlotteans light up their evening landscape that they are busy working on this spring season. With the fabulous weather we’ve been having, homeowners are outdoors in their gardens planting new shrubs and flowers, getting their veggie plants in the ground, cleaning out their pools and prepping for warm weather entertaining with family and friends.

Small spaces in your Charlotte backyard can be brought to life with patio lighting from Outdoor Lighting Perspectives

Once you’ve got your front and back yard spruced up and just how you want it, be sure to cap it off with custom landscape lighting that shows off all your hard work. There is no reason why all your beautiful trees, upgrades and hardscape should disappear into the blackness of night. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte will design an illumination scheme that casts a moonlight glow on your garden beds, stonework, pathways and your home’s frontage. We can highlight any special feature that you are looking to stand out in your landscape such as an ornamental tree, water feature or even a piece of garden art or sculpture. You can enjoy your backyard at virtually any hour of the day or night thanks to professionally installed outdoor lighting.

Landscape lighting offers additional benefits our customers rarely think about when setting up an appointment with us. Sure the gorgeous evening glow is what delights our clients most, but you get the bonus of increased safety, security and convenience, too! Ward off potential trips and falls from guests with good lighting where everyone can walk around with good visibility. Sure footing thanks to proper illuminations makes it easy to get around, go up and down stairs and get the car safely onto the driveway without running over garden beds or the lawn. You can see who is by the pool and in the water, your visitors can get to your front door with ease, and your lit pathways can guide your guests from one end of your property to the other easily.

Charlotte landscape lightingSecurity is another key outdoor lighting advantage, since burglars usually try to avoid well-lit homes that look occupied. We will look at your property in the evening to consider areas that are poorly illuminated and are potentially good targets for a thief, and we will add targeted light that will send them elsewhere. We install timers that turn your lights on and off at random times so it looks lived in, even if it’s a summer or vacation home.

The convenience factor of being able to hang out with friends and family well into the evening is another big plus that custom landscape light brings about. We can set up task lighting so you can grill and work at your outdoor kitchen with ease, you can have dinner, the kids can play on their swing set, and guests can swim in the pool all night long. The entertaining can go on as long as you like thanks to good outdoor lighting that keeps the party rolling. Everyone will feel comfortable because it’s easy to see and it looks gorgeous outside to boot.

Elegantly lit pool from Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte

Extend your pool enjoyment this season with outdoor lighting!

We are no strangers to lighting up pools and other water features such as ponds, waterfalls and fountains. Adding a sense of elegant ambiance and character is something we know how to do well, and it takes a special talent to light up water in the best light so that it shimmers and has plenty of movement that will inspire guests. In fact, pool lighting can be a fairly complicated task for those that do not have the right skills and experience to do it correctly. Pools tend to be at ground level, and the wrong lighting can actually produce a harsh glare that ruins all the fun for your visitors. Nobody wants a bright light in their face while enjoying evening pool time lounging by the water or taking a dip after the sun has gone down.  We can create an incredible effect that highlights all the cool features of your pool such as hardscape, retaining walls, a waterfall or even your flowers and trees surrounding your pool area.

We offer an extensive style of fixtures that can match any home design in these trendy areas—it doesn’t matter if you’ve got a craftsman, colonial, modest cape or a towering Tudor. We can give you a traditional look if that’s what you are after, or we can go uber modern to give a totally unexpected appeal.

Your home always looks like there is someone there thanks to our timers that can turn your lights on and off at any random times you choose.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte Scores a Hole in One With Backyard Recreational Lighting!

Charlotteans love golfNorth Carolinians are passionate about their golf game, and we’re particularly mad about it here in Charlotte. Recently, here at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte, we have been getting quite a few requests to install the outdoor lighting for backyard putting greens, including one that we just completed within the Foxcroft neighborhood of South Charlotte. This homeowner was looking for us to cast light from the perimeter of the green so that he could play well into the evening. To achieve the effect that he was looking for, we used a BB02 stake light that could elegantly be raised to a several feet above ground and would have the ability to be easily adjusted so the light could be focused exactly where needed for increased functionality.

Charlotte backyard putting green lightingThe family chose the beautiful copper finish stake lights which we anchored to a perimeter brick wall that encircles their backyard. The upscale materials will weather over time elegantly blending into the surround landscape. These fixtures both a traditional and modern flair that imparts an air of sophistication to the space without looking harsh or obtrusive. They also deliver broad lighting across the putting green that helps the golfers see in the twilight hours with a beautiful wash of light that is still fitting in the landscape. When the golfing fun is over, these fixtures still serve to light up the shrubbery and perimeter gravel garden bed in a stylish way. Since the stake light is highly adjustable, they can be aimed in a multitude of ways at any time as the homeowners needs change depending on what they are doing outdoors.

Outdoor Lighting installation at South Charlotte backyard golf putting greenAdding illumination to outdoor recreation areas is nothing new to us at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte.
