Fall is that magical time of year when days get shorter and temperatures cool to something a little more comfortable. If you’re going to be enjoying your yard or porch this fall, having appropriate lighting to suit the mood is going to be essential. Here’s how you can design the perfect lighting setup for your fall landscape.
If you don’t want to crowd your space with lights, an illuminated planter can serve two purposes: flower pot by day, light source by night. Not only are illuminated planters chic and modern, but they are an easy do it yourself project. Many retailers sell outdoor-rated LED illuminated pots that come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and colors.
Pendant and Task Lights
Overhanging pendant lights are trendy way to make your outdoor living space acquire a more homey feel. These lights are also a great way to provide task lighting for outdoor kitchens and entertaining spaces. You can find lanterns in a wide variety of styles. Unlike other types of lighting, pendant lights give off a very soft light, which is perfect for fall entertaining.
Do you have or are planning to install pavers, garden walls, kitchen or fireplace units? You will want to plan a lighting scheme for your new space. You can affix low voltage lighting directly into your hardscape during the installation process to create a beautiful, ambient experience throughout your entire living area.
We all know string lights are essential for the holidays, but what about the rest of the year? Many people overlook the whimsical charm that string lights can provide your outdoor space. And you don’t have to stick with just the basic bulbs. Try hanging Japanese lanterns or ornamental bulb designs for a more unique look. You can also have an electrician install outlets into soffits and porches for a more convenient light switch location.
