What are Hardscapes?
Hardscapes are part of your landscaping. They include anything constructed with a building material, like:
- outdoor fireplaces
- outdoor kitchens
- retaining walls
- anything built with concrete, brick or stone
These outdoor living enhancements are growing more and more popular as homeowners show more love for spending time outside. And it’s only natural that you want to enjoy your outdoor spaces after dark.
Hardscape Lighting is Specially-Designed for Hardscapes
Traditional landscape lighting fixtures blend into your lawn and garden, but don’t quite work on patios. To illuminate hardscapes, we design a lighting portrait using hardscape fixtures, which integrate into the building materials of your outdoor spaces.
Hardscape Lighting Has 2 Goals
When designing your lighting portrait, we consider two priorities:
- Ambient lighting for social spaces. When enjoying time outside after dark, you and your guests will appreciate soft ambient lighting that avoids harsh shadows or glares.
- Functional lighting for work spaces. When cooking or performing other tasks, you’ll need sufficient light to see and the correct light temperature. For instance, the wrong lighting makes grilling almost impossible.
If you have a patio, pergola, outdoor kitchen or pool that you don’t get to enjoy after dark, give us a call!
