As a homeowner you’ve spent countless hours planning and creating your dream outdoor living space and surrounding property, and the best time to enjoy it is when the sun comes out. Or is it? Certainly it’s great to experience your property in the daytime, but who says it has to end when the sun sets. Professional outdoor lighting can extend the enjoyment of your back yard retreat by making it accessible and viable at night. Here are just a few ways in which a properly lit landscape can be most beneficial.
Your property in its best light
Hiring Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Kansas City, the area’s leading professional outdoor lighting company, is your first step in properly illuminating the exterior relaxing and entertaining areas of your property, making your yard something truly extraordinary. A strategically and well lit landscape can make different elements “pop” with the right highlighting and shading, thus bringing life to your yard. A custom designed lighting plan and exquisite fixtures combined with a great looking landscape can transform it into a piece of nighttime artwork. Improve your mood by having an aesthetically pleasing yard that you can see with the sun up or down.
From the inside of your home you’ll be able to enjoy seeing through your windows onto your richly lit property rather than a dark reflection of the inside of your house. When your friends and neighbors see your outdoor lighting design, not only will it enhance their experience of your home, it’ll compliment the whole neighborhood.
Outdoor cooking and cocktail parties
Cookouts and barbeques are usually reserved for the summer, while cocktail parties are timeless. But even when it’s not terribly warm out, you can fire up the grill to enjoy some tasty food and beverages. When the weather is right, hosting a party outside is a perfect way to have you and your friends enjoy your fantastic property. It’s always refreshing to spend a little bit more time outdoors, and there will probably plenty of extra room for people to spread out as compared to an indoor gathering. An outdoor lighting system will help keep your outdoor feasting events to a maximum. Gather the neighbors, grab the BBQ sauce, pull on a jacket and enjoy grilling any time of the year.
Focal points and conversation
Fire features and water features are beautiful focal points which almost naturally create conversation areas. These basic elements elicit conversation, as people tend to gravitate toward them. Maybe your yard doesn’t have a fire pit to sit at outside to hang out around. No problem. Landscape lighting can illuminate your yard and keep the late night “fireside” conversations going through the night.
Outdoor lighting makes and evening game of bocce more fun!
If you like to play outdoor games at your house, why let them stop at nightfall? A well-lit back yard retreat can provide hours of fun into the night. There are plenty of games you can play during the night such as bocce, badminton, mini-golf, frisbee, corn hole, or croquet. We can help you keep the games going, well after the sun goes down, just like we’ve done for so many other Kansas City homeowners.
