Summer’s here, and it’s time to get outside and enjoy the beautiful weather with a cold drink, good company, and a bit of barbecue on the patio. And with current designs and lighting concepts available for outdoor living, the patio of today is a far cry from the Hibachi grill and nylon-covered aluminum frame folding chairs of your childhood.
Outdoor living today is an entire concept. Living rooms have moved outside, carpeting is weather-proof, and exterior design is a holistic approach to the total space. Landscape and exterior lighting design have followed suit, and gone are the days of the incandescent paper lanterns strung under the soffit, and blacked-out gardens after sunset.
Homeowners have a myriad of choices in front of them when it comes to landscape lighting: accent/feature lighting, path lighting, deck/patio lights, and don’t forget the lighting concept for that backyard water feature! Lights under the stairs, rope lighting, lights featuring the hanging baskets and overhead wisteria: the list and possibilities are endless.
Options in light colour are without limitation, as well: LED’s are available in standard white, but when it comes to landscape lighting, it is easy to install colour-changing LED’s for that festive party approach.
