Extend Your Summer Nights Outdoors with Landscape Lighting
The Right Lighting Design Creates a Warm and Inviting Outdoor Living Space After Sunset
The warm weather that arrives in Portland and southern Maine every summer lures us to the outdoors for al fresco dinners, a dip in the pool, and late-night stargazing with loved ones. This season, why not add some pizzazz to your backyard activities with beautiful landscape lighting?
Beyond helping you see after sunset, landscape lighting can create a unique ambiance that’s perfect for entertaining. Illuminate your popular gathering spaces, like the pool and patio, and use decorative lighting to extend your style outside.
SmartHome Solutions, Inc. is a professional landscape lighting company that works with Coastal Source to create custom outdoor lighting designs for all types of homes. Explore some ideas for your own backyard below!
Illuminate the Pool and Patio Areas
Think about the most common gathering areas in your backyard. Is it your pool and spa? Maybe your patio or deck? When the sun goes down, encourage friends and family to continue using these spaces by illuminating them with warm, inviting outdoor lighting.
Add lip lights to the pool perimeter and downlights that hang beautifully atop your pergola. Highlight nearby shrubberies or water fountains with wash lights or bullet lights that can be adjusted for tight spots or wider spreads of light. The options are vast and can be customized to fit your vision.
Improve Safety with Step and Path Lighting
The right landscape lighting design not only adds beauty to your backyard but helps keep you and your loved ones safe while outside after dark. For homeowners who prefer fixtures that stay hidden while providing light for safety, Coastal Source offers step lights that mount flush with stairsteps and walls. Well lights are another option for concealed safety lighting along sidewalks and other walkways.
For safety lighting that makes a statement, consider Coastal Source path lights that offer subtle, dependable lighting night after night. Path lights come in a variety of designs and finishes, stand upright along your pathways, and sport stylish caps that add flavor to your backyard.
Add Character with Tiki Torches and Niche Lighting
Have fun with your landscape lighting design by adding unique fixtures like Tiki Torches and niche lighting for custom applications. Coastal Source Tiki Torches have LED heads, which makes them safer than gaslit solutions, and include a 72-inch riser for tall and elegant presentations. Their sealed bulb chambers ensure you can enjoy them for years without maintenance.
Niche lighting is perfect for places where discrete lighting is desired but conventional lights would be too intrusive or bright. These flexible micro fixtures can be placed virtually anywhere to add soft moonlighting to trees, fountains, stairways, and other architectural features that you want to highlight.
