Summer is ending, and fall will be here before you know it. We all enjoy the scents of pumpkin spice and the sight of rustling crimson and auburn leaves across our landscapes. Fall brings about a pleasing change of scenery from the scorching heat of summer. Whether you want to enjoy the chill breeze outdoors or you’d prefer to watch the leaves fall through your living room window, landscape lighting is a must-have for anyone who wants to enjoy their landscape during fall.
Illuminating Fall Leaves
Mother Nature creates a gorgeous masterpiece of colors during this time of year. The vibrant reds, yellows, and purples painted throughout the trees are what make autumn so beautiful. The beauty of the foliage is only further enhanced when they are lit at night. Illuminating your trees and warming the trunks with light brings a sense of serenity to your landscape. Shining a bit of light up into a canopy of colorful leaves creates shadows to enhance the brilliance of nature.
Create a Warm Atmosphere
As the days get shorter, it’s a good idea to update your landscape lighting so you can enjoy your outdoor living spaces well after sunset. Adding uplights, downlights, or other accents adds a warm, inviting glow to your yard, making it an ideal place for entertaining. Landscape lighting highlights your favorite trees, water features, patios, or any focal point you want to draw attention to. It’s the perfect way to create a relaxing atmosphere to draw guests in and allow them to admire the beauty of your yard during evening gatherings.
Line Your Walkways with Landscape Lighting
A beautifully lit path adds to the appeal of your outdoor living space and provides a clear and welcoming entrance to your property. And as the sun sets sooner and the leaves cover the ground, keeping your walkways and stairways well-lit is essential to avoid falls and accidents. For safety, be sure you have enough lighting to provide sufficient light on every part of the walkway. Illuminating your landscape creates a stronger sense of privacy and security because it gives us greater awareness and control over our surroundings.
