It’s that time of year when the cold weather fades away and we prepare our outdoor living spaces for summer BBQs and parties. There is so much to do when preparing our outdoor areas for the summer, especially here in Texas. With so many ways to enhance our homes, consider adding residential landscape lighting to your outdoor area.
Landscape lighting for your Boerne outdoor living area can turn any outdoor space into the perfect summer spot. From creating a kid-friendly atmosphere, a safe spot to host senior guests, an ideal area for our four-legged loved ones, or your own oasis, residential outdoor lighting can make it all happen. If you’re interested in Boerne outdoor lighting, here are some tips to help you get started.
Consider Every Inch of Your Outdoor Area
One of the best aspects of residential landscape lighting is its versatility. With that being said, it’s important to consider what you want to highlight and enhance to best utilize your Boerne landscape lighting. The first thing to think about is the space of your outdoor area. In smaller spots you may want to consider lighting corners of the area, providing gorgeous aesthetics while not taking over your backyard.
Are you working with a large outdoor living space? If so, this gives you a few more options to consider when working with your landscape lighting designer. An outdoor kitchen can turn into the place to be with some strategically placed residential outdoor lighting. Have a pool that could use a pick-me-up? At Elite Lighting Designs, we have various lighting techniques that can take your pool from an everyday backyard pool to a resort-style pool – you’ll never want to leave it!
Another thing to consider is your garden and foliage (both front and backyard). A garden can easily transform any outdoor space as well as create curb appeal for your home. But nighttime can virtually make your garden disappear. Don’t let the upkeep and hard work that goes into maintaining your garden go to waste. Residential outdoor lighting can highlight the beauty of your garden with some strategically placed uplighting.
Safety Enhancements Can Also be Part of Your Boerne Outdoor Lighting
Residential outdoor lighting does more than just add a touch of flair to your home. When working with your Elite Lighting Designs landscape lighting designer, be sure to consider poorly lit walkways. Lighting the dark areas outside your home is important and the walkways are no exception.
In addition to lighting hard-to-see steps, your Boerne landscape lighting can also shine a light on any debris on the walkway or any creepy crawlers that like to make an appearance at night. If you’ve lived in central Texas, you’ve probably already had your own run-in with these nightcrawlers! With residential landscape lighting, those surprises will become few and far between.
