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 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.

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!
