There’s no denying it: Fall is moving in, along with shorter days and longer nights.
No need to head inside yet, though. Autumn nights are cool and comfortable, and there’s plenty of time left to enjoy your pretty yard and garden.
But you’ll want some light to illuminate your outdoor relaxing and entertaining. Here are five ways to shed some light on your property as the longer nights of autumn settle in.
Light Up Your Garden Paths
Evening can be a magical time in the garden — as long as you don’t trip and land face first in the sedum.
There are lots of lighting options here. Some fixtures cast light on the path while others nestle in the garden bed, highlighting your most striking plants.
Light Up Your Front Entrance And Walkway
As darkness settles in earlier, you want your guests to feel safe and welcomed. Make sure your porch and the path leading to it are well-lit.
You might also highlight the landscaping surrounding your entry. If your home has great architectural features like unusual brickwork or stone, shed some light on them for eye-popping curb appeal.
Light Up Your Best Landscape Features
The landscape elements you enjoy so much during the summer can continue to stand out during the autumn evening hours with well-placed lighting.
Cast some light on your pretty pergola or grapevine-covered arbor. Highlight that favorite tree with the striking bark. Uplighting provided by spotlights will accentuate that interesting bark beautifully. Cast a glow on your favorite fall plantings.
Light Up Your Back Patio Or Deck
There’s still plenty of time to roast s’mores on your fire pit, host a barbecue or celebrate the weekend with drinks and good friends.
Install the right lighting on your deck or patio and you’ll extend your enjoyment well into fall.
Light Up Your Driveway
As the nights get longer, your driveway still sees a lot of action. Soon it will be dark when you get home from work. Trick-or-treaters will be trekking to your door. Holiday guests will arrive.
Plan now for lighting that will keep everybody safe and feeling welcome.
