Imagine what you could you do in the evening or early morning hours here in the Delaware Valley, through well-designed outdoor lighting for your deck or patio? From an early morning cup of coffee to a night swim, the possibilities are truly endless.
Sometimes, even just 15 minutes in the fresh air is all it takes to change one’s mood and make the mental shift from “work mode” to “down time”. After all, you chose your outdoor furnishings with care and comfort in mind, so they should be for more than just daytime use! Enjoying the beauty of your landscaped yard from your deck or patio as you wind down the day with a glass of wine or cup of tea becomes more than just a possibility with proper outdoor lighting: it becomes a way of life. For example, one way you can enjoy your deck or patio to its fullest every season is by using paver lights around the perimeter. Paver lights enable all the variations in pattern, light and shadow to come vividly to life after dark. Combined with strategic railing lights and column lights and your deck or patio becomes fully usable as a space for entertaining friends and family year round.
When your outdoor lighting is fine-tuned to your family’s specific needs and preferences, firing up the grill does not have to wait for longer summer hours: enjoy Bar-B-Que on a Tuesday night! Regardless of the season, with path lighting, you can expend excess kid energy by planning a new family tradition: the evening scavenger hunt. My advice would be to have your deck or patio be “base” and you send the kids (or teens or other adults) off on the hunt. The “treasure” can be anything including elusive Easter eggs, a series of toy dinos hiding in the impatients, origami swans peeking out of the rockery, or things out in the garden itself: red leaf, an acorn, pinecone, or feather. Path lighting allows for scampering about without tripping in the dark and safely integrates the spaces to and from your deck or patio.
Outdoor lighting transforms our yards into a magical paradise. Viewed from your deck or patio, your flowers and shrubbery, which are lovely during the day, are cast in new dimensions with the creative use of low level LED ground lights. Familiar planting shapes of even the most common greenery, like ferns, petunias and lavender take on exotic new textures and colors with ground lights. Ornamental trees, such as Japanese Maple, become evening jewels when accented with featuring lighting. Feature lighting enables small trees or sculptures to ground the scene in your landscaped yard: it gives your eyes, and feet, a destination and broadens your view beyond the boundaries of the square footage of your deck or patio.
