Enjoy more areas of your yard this summer by making an outdoor lighting addition.

Seasons change. It really wasn’t too long ago that we were battling winter weather here in Kansas City. Now, temperatures have warmed. Trees, plants, and flowers are green and full of life. Spring is in full swing, and summer is right around the corner. Just like the seasons change, your outdoor lighting should too. There are many reasons for making an addition to your system. Perhaps you changed your landscaping this spring, or added a fire pit area last fall. You’ve been holding on to that tax refund and have now decided you want to expand into a new area. Your side yard is dark. Your partner wants to entertain more, and the deck is the perfect spot for dining during the warm months. Whatever the reason, an addition to your outdoor lighting system allows you greater enjoyment of your yard this summer as you relax in areas that, before, were inaccessible at night.


All homes change the longer we live in them. Daily living causes wear and tear. We also make improvements as we develop habits and patterns within our living spaces. The home you live in today is not the one you purchased five years ago, and sometimes, this can spur changes in your outdoor lighting system too. As you have used your outdoor lighting system, you have probably noticed areas you would like to improve or enhance. This is normal. Additions from Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Kansas City can be as small or large as you like from a couple lights for a new garden addition to a pool area complete with pergola. In many cases, we are able to make additions without upgrading your transformer, especially if you add LED outdoor lighting fixtures, which don’t pull as much voltage as traditional halogen.


No addition is to large or small.

So go ahead and take a walk over your property this evening. What do you notice? Dark spots here and there, an entire area that is not used after sunset because of shadows, or trees and landscaping that cannot be seen. Jot these areas down. Then come back inside and prioritize. You may want to fix all of your problem areas at once, or you may stretch your additions out over several months. Whatever you choose, the additions you make will give you satisfaction all year long and turn your neighbors heads. And Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Kansas City will be here to ease the entire process.


So call us today. Keep your outdoor lighting system up-to-date and matching the growth of your property. We can help. In no time at all, you’ll be ready for a bright, happy summer.
