Top Ten Reasons Why Charlotte Landscape Lighting Should be at the Top of Your Spring 2017 “To-Do” List

Charlotte family friendly outdoor lightingAs the weather in and around the Charlotte area continues to be pleasant and mild, it is only natural that we are starting to anticipate the arrival of spring. Home and garden shows are popping up and retail stores are already gearing up for the outdoor living season ahead. With all this in mind, many Charlotteans are already planning for home and outdoor living renovations. If you are thinking of improving upon the time you and your family spend outdoors then your 2017 spring “to-do” project list should also include landscape lighting!

The benefits of adding landscape lighting or upgrading your existing landscape lighting design are immense. However, isolating outdoor lighting as your spring project objective has advantages over other more invasive renovations. Here are the top 10:

  1. No dust or debris in the house that can occur with other renovations
  2. No cleanup required after project completion
  3. No large equipment causing damage in your yard
  4. If you are planning do-it-yourself type renovations there will be no reason to procrastinate!
  5. Beautiful nighttime landscape views to be enjoyed from inside and outside your home
  6. Extended nighttime outdoor entertaining opportunities
  7. Increased outdoor living satisfaction
  8. Improve curb appeal
  9. Improved safety and security on your property
  10. Become the envy of the neighborhood!

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.

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.

We’ve has incorporated lighting to bocce ball courts, tennis courts, in the surround of lap pools, and even on horseshoe and corn hole fields. There is no reason why outdoor fun has to end after the sun goes down! With the glorious and mild autumn weather we are lucky enough to have in Charlotte, we can keep playtime going in the backyard nearly year round—even an evening tee time after work!
