Charlotte outdoor lighting enhances your outdoors during every season!

Charlotte landscape lighting in the winterOutdoor lighting is one of the few outdoor improvements that provides year-round enjoyment, no matter what the season, or what Mother Nature dishes out. Keep in mind that outdoor lighting, unlike other genres of exterior additions, isn’t just about the warm weather months, it’s a benefit that gives you four seasons of beauty and allure, and aids in function, during all seasons. The Charlotte area has had it’s fair share of cold temperatures and inclement weather lately. Even when temperatures dip into the single digits, or your property is coated in a blanket of snow or ice, your landscape can take on a magical presence thanks to outdoor lighting.

Outdoor Lighting in the Winter

If you can’t go outside on a very cold night, you can still sit indoors and enjoy the majesty of your property through your back windows all lit up in splendor.

Just as the famous prose from Skakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet ..”But, soft! what light through yonder window breaks.”  this also defines the benefits of having outdoor lighting during the late fall and winter here in the Queen City perfectly! If you can’t go outside on a very cold night, you can still sit indoors and enjoy the majesty of your property through your back windows all lit up in splendor. Curling up with a good book in the living room while gazing outside will certainly have a calming effect that can be extremely relaxing after a busy day.

Our outdoor lighting is designed to take advantage of the changing seasons and dramatically improves your lifestyle — both indoors and out. During the warm weather months it enhances all the fun associated with outdoor entertaining, BBQ’s, al fresco dining, late night swims by the pool and more. In the cooler months, outdoor activities such as gatherings by your outdoor fireplace or fire pit with a cup of hot chocolate and even the ease of outdoor food preparation and dining is enhanced.

Safety is another benefit of outdoor lighting at your Charlotte home. Outdoor lighting will  make your property easier and safer to maneuver when it comes to being able to clearly see wet or icy areas that may be on your walkways and sidewalks. Illuminating your garage and the darker corners of your property also deters crime and promotes the appearance as if someone is always home.

Now is the time to consider outdoor lighting to enliven your anticipated spring landscaping endeavors!

Outdoor lighting beautifies every season within the landscape!

There is no denying that winter has finally arrived here in the Charlotte area. Late January and early February are most often the time when we experience our coldest temperatures. Daydreaming of warmer days and nights ahead help to ease winter’s chill. With this in mind, many homeowners are beginning to plan for upcoming landscaping projects and additions. Landscape lighting, accent lighting and garden lighting is a magical way to enhance your outdoor spaces and add beauty to the landscape — and the best part is, outdoor lighting can be added anytime, in any season!

It is a common misconception that many residents think of spring as the ideal season for planting, when in truth, many trees and shrub specimens respond better when planting during the cooler months because it reduces stress on new plantings and makes them more likely to establish successfully in order to thrive in the future. Here in the Southeast, cooler temperatures and lowered humidity make fall and winter the best times to move ahead with many landscaping projects. This includes the addition of outdoor lighting to the landscape!

Take a look at these Charlotte landscapes before and after the addition of outdoor lighting and see why lighting adds the finishing touches to your new or existing landscape:

  • Benefits of the well-lit landscape: 

There are four (4) main benefits to adding landscape lighting to your property. These are beauty, curb appeal, safety and security. While the aesthetic benefits of landscape lighting are an inevitable plus, the added benefit of making your home safer and more secure is a driving force for installing landscape lighting for many Charlotte area homeowners.

Outdoor lighting ensures the safety of your steps through you Charlotte gardenA picture is worth a thousand words when it comes to describing the beauty benefits of landscape lighting. Trees, shrubs and flowers come to life under the spell of lighting! Your lawn will appear more lush, your blooms will appear more colorful and vivid, and your landscape will have depth and dimension! 

Landscape lighting also aids in a more secure home because the veil of darkness is lifted making your home less tantalizing to would-be criminals. Burglars typically decide which homes would make good candidates from the vantage point of the street looking for accessible homes that allow easy entry and exit. Criminals are more likely to target a home that cannot be observed by neighbors or a passersby. If your home and landscape 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 and exposed. No more dark hedges or shrubs under windows!

Charlotte trees light at night with outdoor lightingFrom a safety perspective, the addition of landscape lighting improves safety for you, your family and the guests who frequent your property at night. Whether it is a quick trip to the pool house to grab laundry, an evening game of corn-hole or horse shoes by the deck or dinner on the patio, landscape lighting will ensure the areas you frequent in the evening are visible and safe for eased travel and enjoyment.

Charlotte outdoor lightingIt is also no secret that homes with professional outdoor lighting installations generally appraise for more than those which do not. This is a testament to the power of curb appeal. Not only does your home “show” better at night for potential buyers and to spark interest, today’s home buyer is savvy and recognizes the many benefits of outdoor lighting in comparison to other homes in their price range.
