Lighting Tips to Get Your Backyard Set for Summer


Imagine your perfect summer evening: you're sitting in the backyard with family and friends, enjoying good food and having a great time. You may not realize it, but part of what makes backyard get-togethers so memorable is good lighting. You can create a stunning environment with the right outdoor lighting. Here are some tips for shaping up your backyard for summer:

  1. Uplighting:If you are looking for ambience and security, choose uplighting. You can highlight your home, a specific area or general landscaping while also deterring potential intruders or unwelcome animals. If you expect to run the lights all night, choose LED lights, which consume minimal electricity.
  2. Sconce lighting: Add sconce lights to your fence to bring a bright boundary to your yard. It will add ambience to any backyard party and you'll likely feel safer being able to see the full perimeter.
  3. Step or path lighting: If you find it hard to navigate your backyard at night, install step or path lighting to make sure you can always find your way. Step lighting not only increases safety but also adds a nice element of decorative detail.

While Tiki torches and Christmas lights never go out of style, these installed lighting options will look effortless and sophisticated. If you are ready to bring your backyard to the next level, call David Gray Electrical Services at (904) 605-8190.
