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.

Extend your pool enjoyment this season with outdoor lighting!

With the temperatures we’ve been having here in past few days, it feels like summer is already here. Memorial Day is less than 2 weeks away and for a good portion of Charlotte area residents that means backyard pools and outdoor living areas are being prepared for lots of fun in the sun! But what about the good times to be had after the sun goes down? Professional pool lighting and landscape lighting in your backyard allows you to let the good times roll well into the night.

The right lighting makes all the difference when it comes to enjoying your pool and surrounding areas at night. Much the way candlelight sets the mood for an elegant dinner party, skillfully designed and installed exterior lighting creates a special ambiance around your pool and throughout your landscape. In addition to its aesthetic benefits, outdoor lighting is extremely functional, such as illuminating a pool for swimming, delineating a pathway, and making you feel more safe and secure. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte professional services and high quality fixtures can do all of this and more, while expanding your home’s living space.

During the warm seasons from spring all the way into the autumn, temperatures can soar into the late evening hours. After a long day of work and a wonderful evening meal, wouldn’t a relaxing dip in the cool water of your pool or the warm bubbly water of your spa finish the night just right? Harsh flood lights or a total lack of illumination are anything but relaxing. With that in mind, wouldn’t the addition of a custom designed lighting system which combines the warm glow of ambient light for mood enhancement and focal lighting to accentuate features which add to the allure of your pool or spa and surrounding areas complete the look?

More Lights and More Beauty with Charlotte Outdoor Lighting

We’ve all heard the phrase that less is more. Overabundance can create something chaotic and overwhelming. When it comes to outdoor lighting, we couldn’t agree more. However, only investing in the mere basics is not ideal either. There is a perfect balance between too many lights and too few. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte wants to help you find that balance. We also want to make you aware of how going beyond the bare bones necessity can really enhance your home.

Adding additional fixtures can really enhance your home.

Adding additional fixtures can really enhance your home.

Illuminating your home and yard provides safety on top of beauty. When designed and implicated the correct way, outdoor lighting can transform any home into a work of art. In order to achieve that result, more than a few fixtures need to be installed. You may be content with the system you currently have, but take a closer look. Are the textures on the outside of your home being showcased as best as possible? Are your beautiful trees a spectacle even after the sun has set? Take an inventory of all the eye catching, unique parts of your landscape. Then consider how stunning they would be with the proper landscape lighting. There is always something in every yard that deserves a soft, visually enhancing spotlight.

Even a few extra lights can make an area of your yard more inviting

We don’t want to overwhelm your yard with light. It’s not our goal to simply sell as many lighting fixtures to you as possible. We take great pride in designing specific landscape lighting systems that complement. What we want is for your home to go from beautiful to breathtaking as the natural light fades from the sky. Adding a few more outdoor lights here and there can do just that. It doesn’t have to be a gratuitous amount of lights. Sometimes a spotlight here or a well light there embellishes the entire scene.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte is here for you. Give us a call and allow us to upgrade your current outdoor lighting system. We can reassess every piece and find a way to bring new life into your landscape. More lights don’t mean more hassle. It means the opportunity to discover hidden gems and upgrade the overall aesthetic of your home.

Waterfall Lighting Brings Nature Home

Charlotte waterfalls are enhanced with outdoor lighting

Beautifully landscaped waterfalls are perfect places for outdoor lighting

Living near the mountains and foothills of North Carolina definitely has bonuses. If you are a hiker, or know a hiker, you’re probably aware that there are many beautiful waterfalls within a few hours drive. The Hunger Games was even filmed here because of the natural beauty of the area. If you’ve hiked out to a waterfall or even seen pictures, you probably wanted to take it back with you. The sound of the water crashing, the cool mist on your skin, and sight of water cascading through the air and over stones brings relaxation and a sense of peace. For the moment, this peace seems endless, like the running water. Water features, and especially waterfalls, are beautiful landscape additions that many in our city are making part of their backyards. These features help create that sense of relaxation and peace we can find out by creeks and waterfalls in the woods. As beautiful as a backyard water feature is, it will disappear at night just like any other landscape feature, and while you will still be able to hear it, the enchanting visual is lost once the sun sets. But with exquisite waterfall lighting from Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte, your waterfall can work its magic, day or night.

Just as with tree lighting, there is an art to waterfall lighting. If the lighting is too bright, it can easily over power the feature. When lighting a waterfall, we want light to blend with the

water, creating a soft, diffused light. Using the right fixtures and positioning them correctly is key to getting this effect. For waterfall lighting, we place cast brass pond lights underwater. Depending on the desired effect, we can position lights behind the waterfall, so that light diffuses through the fall itself to create a mesmerizing glisten and shimmer. We can also light the feature from beneath, causing light to shine up through the cascading water, highlighting the spot where the water splashes into you pond.

To light your waterfall, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte uses the highest quality fixtures. They are durable and completely submersible. Watertight gaskets ensure that all internal components remain dry and resist shorting out.  Just as all of our other lights, they are guaranteed, so you can rest assured that if any problem arises, we will remedy it quickly.

So if you are ready to make your water feature glisten with the best waterfall lighting, contact us today. We will ensure that your waterfall is not only heard at night but also seen – seen in the most enchanting light imaginable.
