How to Incorporate Outdoor Lighting to Create an Outdoor Oasis in the Fraser Valley

Good lighting can elevate the appearance of any location. Even simple strings of lights draped over a deck can make it a more sophisticated and exciting place to be. Some people might be satisfied with that, however there is so much more that lighting can do to make your yard more exciting. Here are some tips on how to use lighting to transform your yard into an outdoor oasis here in the Fraser Valley.

Dynamic lighting can be used to draw attention to the various features in your yard. You could use specifically arranged lighting to highlight a statue, water feature, tree, or notable plant life in your yard. Path lighting can be used to delineate your walkways which also has the additional advantage of increasing safety, allowing gatherings and events late into the evening without worrying about the footing of your guests.

Many of these lighting options can also be made more exciting and dynamic through the use of different bulb types, color or by making them flash or cycle through various patterns. You can even “lead” guests to various parts of your yard by strategically including this type of lighting.

Most of our lighting options can be easily controlled through our intuitive smartphone app, you can even adjust the lighting from inside giving an impressive view from inside as well as out. Many of these lighting options are available as temporary installations for special events or as permanent fixtures to create the perfect inviting hangout space for our beautiful Fraser Valley spring and summers.

When it comes to beautifying a space there is nothing quite like lighting. It draws the eye and dazzles the senses, transforming any location with beauty and elegance. With these tips and suggestions, we hope we have demonstrated how you can integrate outdoor lighting to transform your yard into one of the most beautiful places in the Fraser Valley.
