Even if we hate to admit it, summer is officially over! That means you have to pack up the grill, pull the plug on the outdoor lighting and completely forget about your landscape until next spring, right? Wrong! When the weather gets cooler and the days get shorter, people tend to focus on indoors, but this is the best time of year to enjoy your outdoor lighting and get the best use out of it!
Fall is an ideal time to have your landscape lighting done. In the summer, the days are so long that we only really get to enjoy our lights for a short time each night. We are lucky in the fall: the turning of the season, the cooling air, colored leaves and shortening days all mean its time to throw on a sweater and step out onto the patio to enjoy the season!
There is never a bad time for outdoor lighting. But there is a best time for outdoor lighting, and that’s now. Longer nights mean more time for your landscape lighting features to do what they do best — illuminate your beautiful home and landscape.
While it can still be quite warm in fall, evenings can get chilly. Create a warm, welcoming environment in your outdoor entertaining areas by adding uplights, downlights or sconces that provide just the right amount of light to warm up the space. Another great option of lighting to make your outdoor living space POP with all your fall entertaining is to add some café lights! Work with one of our amazing outdoor lighting designers to use landscape lighting to help create the perfect space for fall entertaining.
