Charlotte Outdoor Lighting for Halloween

With the days getting shorter and nightfall making an earlier entrance, it is also important to make sure your outdoor areas are well-lit so your outdoor enjoyment can continue well into the evening. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte can tackle the job of maintaining your existing system, adding to it or installing a brand new lighting system for you from scratch. We can put you on the schedule right now for an autumn inspection so you are ready to enjoy the season and busy holiday season ahead.

If you have an existing outdoor lighting system we will inspect it to assure your system is working properly and that any burnt out bulbs are replaced. This is also a great time to consider converting an old-school halogen system to an all LED outdoor lighting system since the bulbs last way longer and consume less electricity. We come in and check all your wiring and make sure it’s all intact and we re-bury any wire that has made its way to the surface due to any landscape activity or inclement weather too. We also carefully inspect all your fixtures to make sure they are in good shape, aligned properly, and free of dirt or spider webs, and we will trim any plant overgrowth blocking your beam of light.  We also check your transformer to ensure that it is carrying the load of wattage properly and that your timer is functioning as it should.

The fall is also a good time to decide if you wish to add additional lighting to enhance your system or perhaps you feel that an upgrade is in order. We can give your property a whole new look in terms of ambience and mood if you are ready for a change of how your home and property are currently illuminated. We can add lighting to the areas where family and friends primarily congregate in your backyard and make sure that those spots are lit up so they not only look beautiful, but that they are safer as to avoid slip and falls. Lighting steps and entrances into a patio or deck, for example, is a great candidate for additional light so that you and your guests can easily navigate. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte will ensure your pathways from your driveway to your yard are visible enough to navigate safely — and to avoid coming home to a dark home night after night.

Nothing is more welcoming than the warm glow of Charlotte outdoor lighting on a chilly night.

Charlotte outdoor lighting adds vibrancy to homes in NoDa, Plaza Midwood and South End!

Elizabeth Outdoor Lighting

Charlotte landscape lighting in Elizabeth.

Exciting things are happening in neighborhoods such as NoDa, Plaza Midwood, South End and Elizabeth in Charlotte. These areas are alive, vibrant and trendy thanks to the gentrification that has been taking place with the renovation of gracious old homes that are getting a second life. Remodeling can be seen everywhere as residents are moving in and re-inventing these properties inside and out.

These homeowners are pioneering some big changes in these often forgotten vintage neighborhoods, and may be buying homes with antiquated or no outdoor lighting at all. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte is working with many families moving into these districts to update their existing outdoor landscape lighting or help them plan out brand new custom system systems that fit the style of their newly renovated homes.

Elizabeth outdoor lightingWith new LED technology options, it’s truly a no-brainer to use it in outdoor landscape lighting, since it will save money over the long term and it’s environmentally friendly. You get 45,000+ hours of use from LED bulbs and they can be easily replaced with our specially designed American made all metal fixtures. You can avoid the constant change-out of old-school halogen bulbs that are also much higher wattage and cost more to own over time. 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.

Thieves aren’t interested in having the light shining on their devious activities, so the lighting designers at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte can help you illuminate those darker corners where the bad guys tend to hide to offer you peace of mind and protection. 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. Of course, there is also the safety value that is added to your property because guests can clearly see where they are walking and avoid a trip hazard. Walking the family dog, taking out the trash and navigating your driveway are all easily done when visibility is good thanks to evening outdoor lighting.

Another bonus to backyard lighting is that it enhances outdoor entertaining way past sundown. You can hang out on the patio or deck, cooking burgers on the grill and enjoy great conversation with friends in the evening thanks to the ability to see. We can customize fabulous lighting schemes that offer a gorgeous wash of light without being harsh or blinding. Everything will have a natural, moonlit vibe that showcases your home’s style and façade in the best possible light and extends outdoor fun time.
