While you may often consider your trees and plants to be the essential elements of your landscape, your landscape lighting also plays an important role in creating the perfect look for your outdoor space. Now that fall has finally set in for the year it is time to update the look of your outdoor space for the season. As you are adjusting the look of your landscape for autumn, consider these landscape lighting tips for your new fall landscape.
Update Your Lighting Timers
Now that it is getting darker earlier on, the first order of business for your landscape lighting should be to adjust the timers on your lights. This will help to ensure that your landscape lighting switches on automatically as the sun is going down, allowing your lights to work as they should throughout the season.
Uplight Your Favorite Trees
What better way to show some of the most beautiful trees in your yard than with great uplighting for fall and winter months? Make the most of your favorite landscape features by uplighting trees that look great during the season.
Incorporate String Lights into Your Landscape
Not only are string lights a beautiful form of soft lighting, but they also add a cozy and fun look to your landscape. Consider adding string lights to your seating area or patio for a festive fall glow as you entertain during the last few weeks of fall this year.
Light Your Fall Entertainment Area
Particularly if your family loves to entertain during the fall, consider adding some form of landscape lighting to areas around your patio, hot tub, or firepit this season. This addition will allow you and your guests to enjoy time in your yard after dark well into November.
Warm Up the Look of Your Yard
Landscape lighting is a great way to warm up the look of your yard once the sun goes down. Add curb appeal to your home with beautiful landscape lighting that will show off the very best of your outdoor space.
Highlight the Perimeter of Your Yard and Patio
In addition to boosting the aesthetic appeal of your outdoor space, your landscape lighting plays an important role as a safety feature in your yard throughout the year. Highlight the perimeter of your property for kids and pets this season to ensure that everyone can stay safely maintained in your yard at all times.
