Neighborhood Entry Lighting

Neighborhood Entry Lighting

One of the ways you can make your subdivision more appealing is by adding neighborhood entry lighting to the entrances of your subdivision. If you have a large sign at the front with the name on it, draw attention to it with elegant LED floodlights. With LED lights, you will spend less on energy and expect to get at least 50,000 hours of light out of your bulbs before you need to replace them. With minimal maintenance, not only does this idea make your subdivision welcoming to current residents, but appealing to potential residents. Since LED lights are energy and cost-efficient, this can prevent you from raising HOA’s down the line, which residents will love.

Neighborhood Entry Lighting

Your residents can enjoy feeling safe walking around their neighborhood at night because it’s well-lit. In addition, HOA outdoor lighting will increase their desire to live there.

Illuminate your neighborhood’s most unique features for a beautiful nighttime experience. Residents will love being able to see their neighborhood at night, and who knows, they might even spend some more time outdoors after the sun goes down.

Specialty Landscape Lighting Installation Helps St. Louis Homeowner Achieve Dreams of a Classic English Victorian Home

You listened to me, designed my vision, and executed beautifully. We are so incredibly thankful and grateful to you. While the landscaping truly is a piece of art, your lighting solution accentuates its already natural beauty and brings it to take on a life of its own in the evening. We are fortunate to not only have the pleasure of enjoying our landscaping during the day, but we can also enjoy her in a different light in the evening where her natural beauty literally glows. – Alecia

Buying your dream home is the first step, making it your own is step two. Recently, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives had the pleasure of working with a client in the Lake St. Louis community who wanted to show off their gorgeous new landscaping at night. To complement their gorgeous home, the client had their landscape completely redone with a classic English Victorian charm. Once the landscaping was complete, she wanted to show her yard off at night without losing the classic English Victorian charm of the landscape and home. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives stepped in to help the client achieve their goals.

Lake St. Louis landscape Lighting with Specialty Path Lighting

One of the ways Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of St. Louis was able to complement the landscape’s unique feel was by special ordering Bronze Marseille path lights. These lights resemble lanterns and were the best lighting fixture to illuminate the home’s pathways while keeping the classic English Victorian theme.

Micro-Spot Light on Mailbox

Not only can we take care of the lighting throughout your landscape but also your mailbox. The homeowner wanted to draw attention to their mailbox to make the address visible at night. So, our outdoor lighting installers added a micro spotlight on the mailbox. The micro spotlight is a fantastic choice for tight areas where there is not a ton of room for the light itself.

Highlighting the Yard’s Best Features with Landscape Lighting

Landscape Lighting St. Louis

There were several parts of the yard to draw attention to. To start, we created uplighting for the trees by installing flush mount well lights that were installed in the turf so that the lawnmower won’t destroy them. We always install our landscape lighting with landscape maintenance in mind.

St. Charles County Landscape Lighting

The home also had traditional brass and copper uplights installed in the planting beds to accentuate the beautiful plants. Redwoods Inflight lights were installed for the trees in the back to give off a high output to accommodate for the height of the trees. Each fixture was strategically chosen to complement the landscape the best way possible.

Landscape Lighting St. Louis

Lastly, we installed wash lights to accentuate the two different statues and the fountain. Our outdoor lighting installers were able to take this beautiful classic English Victorian garden in St. Charles County and bring it to life at night without losing its charm.

When you have dreams of a particular design aesthetic for your landscape and curb appeal, the right lighting can make all the difference. If you have gorgeous landscaping to show off and enjoy better at night, call today to schedule a design consultation.

Fall Backyard Living in St. Louis is Better with Outdoor Lighting

fall backyard lighting St. LouisIf you’re like many St. Louis residents, you have had enough of the summer heat and are looking forward to a slight cool down as fall approaches. The change in weather signals a re-emergence of families into their backyard living spaces. The grills are being fired up, the footballs and baseballs are being tossed around again, and neglected patios and decks are being enjoyed again.

Along with the relief from the heat and the beginning of sweater weather comes shorter days and longer nights. Don’t let the setting sun keep you from enjoying one of the most beautiful times of the year. Add professional LED backyard lighting to your deck, patio, and yard so you can stay outside longer!

What should you consider for your St. Louis backyard lighting project?

Patio Lighting

Stone, paver, and concrete patios are a great place to hang out at home. They provide a lovely place to dine and lounge and in today’s backyards often include a large variety of accessories to make outdoor living even better. From pergolas, porch roofs, and outdoor kitchens to outdoor fireplaces and outdoor televisions, patios are truly an extension of our homes.

entertain better with patio lightingWe provide stunning patio lighting designs to maximize the beauty and function of your unique patio. Choose from overhead task lighting for your outdoor kitchen, under-counter ambient lighting, hardscape lighting for your vertical paver or stone structures, or custom landscape lighting to surround the space with a soft glow.

Many of our clients love to entertain on their patios which has brought overhead string lighting to the top of the “must-have” outdoor living accessory list. These nostalgic and festive lights are custom strung and can hang year-round over your patio for an instant party vibe. They also work well out in the yard between trees, over your deck, over a fire pit, and almost anywhere else a post can be installed.

Deck Lighting

enjoy the night with deck lightingBackyard decks are a lovely place to relax, party, eat dinner and host gatherings. The soft decking provides that comfortable indoor feeling but in the fresh air of the outdoors. If your deck was already in place when you purchased your home, or you omitted to add light during the building process, as night falls earlier and earlier each day you might be wishing for a little more light so you can stay out longer.

Deck lighting doesn’t have to be installed during the deck building process. We can install a variety of deck lights into your existing deck. Popular choices in deck lighting include stair riser lights for safety, post cap lights for decoration and ambient light, under-rail lighting for a beautiful perimeter glow, and half-moon post lights for illuminating the deck floor.

With a customized combination of deck lighting at your home, you can continue to enjoy the space seamlessly through sunset and beyond!

Tree Lighting

Fall Colors are more beautiful with lightingTrees are a magical part of your landscape design. They provide an anchor to the entire property, providing shade during the day, and mystical shadows in the moonlight at night. But during the autumn color change, they provide lively color and vibrancy to all of St. Louis. Have you ever seen the stunning oranges, yellows, and reds of a turned maple leaf in the stunning glow of a professionally designed tree lighting installation? It is a sight to behold and a perfect way to maximize the glorious scenery of the short autumn color change season.

Exterior Home Lighting for Brick Houses in St. Louis

There is just something about a classic brick home that screams sophistication and charm. From ranches to colonials and even modern style homes, brick is an excellent choice for any house. Brick provides strength and stability and a no maintenance finish that will look as good at year 30 and 40 as it did the day it was built. With stunning day time curb appeal, the only thing left to do is highlight your gorgeous brick home for nighttime beauty.

How to Properly Apply Outdoor Lighting to a Brick Home

Start with the landscape lighting

It might seem as if it can’t possibly be so important, but if you want to properly illuminate your brick home, you have to start with the landscaping. With the strategic use of path lighting and landscape lighting, you can subtly draw the eye of visitors and passersby to your home. A gorgeous brick home illuminated in the middle of complete darkness, just wouldn’t do it justice. Highlight trees, shrubbery, flowers and flowerbeds that surround your gorgeous brick St. Louis home. And for added depth and dimension we love to accent trees and shrubbery that are further away from the home so that your property doesn’t look flat after the sun sets.

Balance light across the entire home

outdoor lighting for brick homesThe next step in accenting a brick home with exterior lighting is to use a combination of uplighting and wall wash lighting technique, customized for your home, for a balanced illumination across the entire front facade. By using focal lights at a precise angle, with a wider spread, and strategically spaced, the texture of the brick and relief of the mortar will create a dancing array of light and shadow. From one corner to the other, your home’s grandeur will be on display at night with added safety and security too.

Highlight the highest peaks

Two stories or one with a cathedral ceiling, we love to shine uplights all the way up to the highest peaks of your brick home. Depending on the strategic placement, we may achieve light to your highest peaks with focal lighting from the ground. If not, additional lights used in the eaves of your first floor roofline add intrigue and interest to the upper floors of your home.

Do you just LOVE your brick home and want to show it off at night? Call us today to schedule a free nighttime demonstration to see what outdoor lighting can do for you! 636-561-1818

permanent overhead string lightingBistro Lighting is a favorite for those who entertain regularly. The nostalgic, festive round lights hang overhead and create instant magic.

Since we customize the length, we can hang them anywhere. Our bistro lights are built to stay up year-round and come with a 5-year warranty.

Deck Lighting is a fantastic way to transform your deck into the favorite summer party spot.

Are you looking for an opportunity for creativity within your landscape? Do you need that perfect product that will allow you to easily make changes to fit the mood of the day or the weekend’s special events? Add color to your life with RGB LED landscape lighting!

Color Changing RGB Landscape Lights

If you wanted to add color to your landscape lighting design in the past, it required adding colored lens covers to your lights manually. Not anymore!

With LED technology, we have lights that can be changed to a variety of different colors all from an easy to use smartphone app. In fact, “RGB” means red, blue, and green.
With these three colors and the technology to control the output of each color, you can choose from over 16 million hues of light!

What Could You Do with 16 Million Different Color Choices?

  • Match the exact shade of magenta your daughter chose for her wedding colors.

  • Hit the precise shade of blue to support the St. Louis Blues on their Stanley Cup Playoff run! BLUE: (0,47,135) YELLOW: (252,181,20) NAVY BLUE: (4,30,66) WHITE: (255,255,255)

  • Or support the Cardinals all summer long! RED: (151,35,63)

  • Adjust until you get the perfect red and green for a traditional holiday light scene – or match your newest decorations with golds, silvers, blues, and more.

  • Promote your passion! Whether you’re supporting Alzheimer’s charities, breast cancer research, autism awareness, or otherwise, your charity is sure to have a color for showing support.

Choose Your Favorite Color or Find a New Favorite

When you have RGB color landscape lighting, you can change the colors whenever you want to whatever color you want. Choose your favorites or slide your RGB scale around to find a new favorite hue of yellow or that perfect coastal turquoise for a summer party! The choices are pretty close to endless, so have fun choosing.

Or Just Choose White!

Just because you have color, doesn’t mean you have to use it.

With an RGB LED landscape lighting system, you can choose neutral tones such as white or light yellow for every day. Allowing you to show a sophisticated and modern landscape lighting design when desired, but still, be able to turn on the fun when the opportunity presents itself. And you can do both at the same time. Add color around your patio, while keeping your front yard neutral.

Where and How to Use RGB LED Outdoor Lighting to Its Fullest Extent

While the only limit is your imagination, we have a few suggestions for how you can utilize an RGB LED landscape lighting system.

  1. Add it to your home’s exterior lighting so that at Christmas, your home can be washed with a holiday color for instant holiday lighting. Imagine green and red columns!
  2. Add color changing landscape lights to your outdoor entertaining spaces. When you host the big post-game celebration or an everyday gathering, you can use the colors to set the mood, celebrate the event, and create instant fun.
  3. Trees are particularly magical with colorful RGB lighting. In the summer, their green leaves combine to make new colors while in winter, their glorious, majestic branches get a whole new outlook.

If you’re interested in adding a little color to your world, call us today to learn more about RGB LED outdoor lighting systems. We look forward to hearing from you.

Focus on the Fun

An artist for fun, this homeowner wanted to add landscape lighting to create visibility around his property, but also illuminate his hobby, his passion, his art!

First, we got to work creating a custom outdoor focal lighting technique for each of his hand made sculptures. Each piece of art offered its own unique shape, size, and texture, which means we had to adjust angles and placements to properly illuminate each piece in an exclusive way.

Classic and Decorative Landscape Lighting

With a gorgeous property and landscape, we didn’t just stop with the focal lighting for his artwork. We added classic landscape lights to illuminate the retaining wall that lines his driveway.

We also used classic wall-wash lighting to highlight the exterior of his beautiful modern home.

Lastly, we added to the already existing landscape art by adding our own decorative lighting pieces – attraction lights. Attraction lights are artistically designed lighting fixtures with lights on the inside, so they create magical shadows and become an additional focal feature of your property in their own right. They come in multiple sizes and styles so we used smaller path lighting size around his walkway and framed his entryway with two taller bollards.

From homemade art to gnome collections and frog collection, at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of St. Louis, we’ll illuminate your favorite landscape focal features.

How Much Texture Does Your Siding Feature?

While the charming and unique features of your home are where you might want the light, we often find some hidden gems you don’t consider. The first and best feature we hear commentary on is how our lighting brings out the texture and color of a home’s exterior finish. With our wall wash lighting technique, we create a gorgeous combination of light and shadow along your home’s siding. Stacked stone, Hardie plank siding, and brick come to life with the perfect angle of light.

So while all your home’s custom features get the focus of our lighting, you might just find the everyday finishes stealing the show under a whole new light.

Tree Lighting Adds Depth, Height, and Intrigue to Your St. Louis Property

While Missouri celebrates the first day of April as Arbor Day, National Arbor Day is April 26th. We only mention it because we think trees deserve to be celebrated every single day of the year. After all, trees are responsible for making a large portion of the air we breathe!

Celebrate your trees this month and every month with professional tree lighting.

Each tree on your property is unique and deserves its own lighting technique so it can shine with the full glory of its potential. While you could add lighting to your trees yourself, the one-size-fits-all and lower quality lights you find in the store, just won’t do your trees justice.

Custom Tree Lighting

Ornamental Trees
Do you have beloved crepe myrtles or a Japanese maple? Ornamental trees are generally smaller than hardwoods and often have a wider more decorative canopy. We’ll utilize our best uplighting with a wider wash so that we can show off the reach of the gorgeous branches. If it is a tree that blooms, we might just use two lights to make sure all the petals are enjoyed after dark for an unbelievable 3D effect.

Deciduous Trees
Your Maples, Oaks, and Poplars transform from season to season. From spring buds to vibrant fall colors, deciduous trees are ever-changing. We’ll customize our lighting technique for each tree to maximize its beauty in every season. While you might love the fall colors, you may just discover something magical you’ve never seen before when our installed downlight shines through the bare branches in winter. With focal lighting, moonlighting and more, your majestic trees will be the anchor of your landscape lighting design.

Evergreen Trees
Typically spruces or pines, your evergreen trees add privacy year-round and keep some green in your life during the heart of winter. With thicker foliage on their branches, allowing for less light to get through, we approach each evergreen tree with a different method than others. We might choose to shine a gorgeous light all the way up the trunk to the highest branch. Or, we may use a spotlight from further out to cast a lovely wash on the entire tree!

The best way to know how we can light your trees is to call us and schedule your free nighttime demonstration. We’ll come out to your home and use our portable lighting system to show you our design proposal for your unique trees. Don’t wait! You have nothing to lose, the demo is no-obligation, absolutely free. Call today 636-561-1818

Add the Finishing Touch to Spring Landscape Updates with Landscape Lighting

Are you busy planning your Chesterfield, Creve Coeur, St. Louis area spring landscape updates? Whether you’re refreshing your mulch, planting a few annuals, or tackling a full landscape redo, it is important that you consider landscape lighting an integral part of the design.

Before Mulching, Call Outdoor Lighting Perspectives

Spring Landscape lightingEveryone has their own order of doing things, but I think we can all agree that planting before mulching makes for the tidiest looking landscape. To that end, we want to let you know, adding landscape lighting is much better if we can do it before you mulch too! So, if you’re ready to spread mulch in St. Louis, wait, call us first.

Refresh your Existing Landscape

If your landscape is centered around perennials and shrubs, you might only need to trim hedges, clean out weeds, and refresh your mulch each spring. This type of low-maintenance, long-lasting landscape design is becoming more popular each year as perennials require less water and maintenance.

If you enjoy an established landscape full of azaleas, hostas, and trees, we recommend you add new landscape lighting to show off your mature vegetation.

Our favorites include adding landscape path lighting near your medium to small perennial flowers. We love to add an uplight to any tall flowers such as poppies or irises. Lastly, your trees should absolutely shine. With uplighting or tree-mounted moonlighting, your favorite Oaks and Maples will get the attention they deserve after dark while providing subtle visibility around your property.

Show-Off New Flowers, Trees, and Landscape Beds

St Louis flowerbed lightingWhile mature landscaping has a certain magic to it, newly planted trees, flowers, and shrubbery transform a property from a bare or scarce landscape into a lush and lovely outdoor space. When the effort is made to create a gorgeous landscape, landscape lighting is a natural next step. Show off your newly transformed yard with gorgeous spotlights on your new trees and accent lighting on your flowers and shrubs.

But, if you are a lover of annual flowers and install them every spring to create a colorful floral landscape by mid-summer as they spread, we have lighting for you too! Call us now to plan your flower lighting, and we can be ready to add the lights as soon as your flowers are going in the ground. Once they spread with the help of your loving time and care, we can come back out and make adjustments if necessary.

There is nothing quite like annual flowers spreading around your landscape lighting for a colorful nighttime lightscape.

Call Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of St. Louis today! When we get involved in your spring landscape planning, the earlier, the better. We will work closely with you, your landscape designer, gardener or landscaper to schedule optimal lighting installation timing for the best-looking landscapes in St. Louis! 636-561-1818

Step Three: After darkness begins to fall, we’ll invite you to join us in the yard.

Step Four: You’ll begin by seeing your home as it stands, as it has always stood. Then, you’ll flip the switch to see the transformation.

The response is most often a dropped jaw, followed by ooohs and ahhhs.

Once you’ve recovered your senses, we’ll begin looking at the lighting with a constructive eye. Together we can tweak the design, shift lights around, add lights or take lights away so that the final product is what you’ll love!

At that point, if you decide to go forward, we can schedule installation. If you are not sure, that is okay too! We are not high-pressure salespeople. Our joy is seeing your joy and we know that when you’re ready for lighting, we’ll be here, ready and honored to help.
