As Memphis weather oscillates between freezing and mild, it feels like murder on our health some days. But great news! This is a sign that spring is well on its way. Just imagine – flowers blooming, new leaves giving trees that fuzzy appearance, and warm breezes that don’t cut through your clothes. With all of the time we have been spending indoors recently, it will be really nice to be able to enjoy the outdoors comfortably. Just a few more weeks of slogging through this weather, and we’ll get our wish. Right now is the time to get ready. That way, as soon as the beautiful weather arrives, you’ll be ready to spend every minute you can outside. To truly maximize the time you can spend outdoors, spruce up your backyard spaces with outdoor lighting from Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Memphis. Though spring will bring longer daylight hours, outdoor lighting will allow you to soak in spring all night long.
Consider outdoor lighting in the following areas. Some of them you have probably already crossed your mind; others may not have done so just yet.
The deck is a gathering place for family and friends alike. Whether you throw a party or just sit outside for a drink and relaxing conversation with the family, deck lighting creates a fun, relaxed atmosphere where you can unwind, be yourself, and breathe in the fresh spring air. Basking in a romantic glow, you can savor some of the best spring moments.
The patio is the perfect spot for a spring barbeque, and enjoying a meal outside is a welcomed relief after being cooped up in the house for so long. But it will be much less enjoyable if you burn the food or knock a platter off the table. Not only is patio lighting a beautiful way to set this area apart from the rest of the yard, it also makes it far more functional.
The Pool Area
Though it will be a while before you put your pool to use, being near the water is always a rejuvenating experience. What better time to experience this than during the season of rejuvenation? The area around a pool can be particularly beautiful when illuminated. Of course, its greenery and architectural elements attain a dramatic flair, but light rays reflecting off the water inspire particular enchantment that cannot be matched by any other means. And yes, it makes the area much safer.
Where do your paths lead? Around your home? Though the garden? To the front door? Wherever they may take you and your guests, it is always good to be able to see where you’re going. Path lighting may even inspire you and your family to take a leisurely stroll through your property. Pools of light splashed along your paths will transform the way you see them.
Flowers are the royalty of the plant kingdom, and their contribution to the beauty of your property peaks during springtime. However, once the sun sets, their varied colors fade and blend together. With landscape lighting, they don’t have to suffer this fate. In clear, natural light, their colors can be seen and enjoyed in their true form.
No matter where you enjoy spending time outdoors on your property, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Memphis can provide you with the home improvement that will keep you enjoying it night after night. Contact us today, and we’ll help you get a jumpstart on spring. You’ll only be waiting for the weather to catch up.
