The residents of Summerville, SC, the birthplace of sweet tea, know a thing or two about plants and landscaping—the perfect match for a company that knows oodles about landscape lighting. The town that calls itself The Flower Town in the Pines has an abundance of flowering shrubs, regal pine trees and private and public gardens. The company that calls itself Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charleston has more expertise than anyone else when it comes to the best landscape lighting for Summerville homes.
When we’re designing a landscape lighting plan for a Summerville residence, the question is “What’s not to light?” In this profession, it’s understood that a little lighting goes a long way, and you can’t light every beautiful tree and plant in a landscape full of beautiful plantings.
Let’s take a look at some of our favorite elements to illuminate within these beautiful Summerville, SC, landscapes.
Water Features Will Always Make the Cut
No matter how many beautiful elements you have throughout your Summerville landscape, if you have a fountain, pond or other water feature, those will always be included in your landscape lighting plan. Nothing else matches the splendor of a water feature gently illuminated against the dark backdrop of the nighttime landscape. Your professional lighting designer from Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charleston has just the right lighting technique for the task. We have a way of lighting a fountain, for example, from several different points at once to give it depth and dimension unlike anything else nearby. And a simple pond with a waterfall? The combination of the sight and sound of moving water delights the senses at night somehow differently than in the daytime sun.
When Your Garden IS an Oasis and HAS an Oasis
Many Summerville gardens have sections each more beautiful than the last. The setting pictured above shows just how elegant and effective landscape lighting can be. Simple low lights, similar to those used for pathway lighting, direct light down onto ornamental grasses and other low plants encircling this pool. Notice how the beautiful light fixtures—which you barely see because the focus is entirely on the plants—are hooded to prevent light shining straight up where it’s not needed. Then, across the pool, small trees are illuminated with a different kind of lighting. Low lights are placed at the base of the trees and angled up into the branches and leaves, illuminating the feathery structure of the trees beautifully.
The Beauty and Elegance of Landscape Lighting in Summerville SC
If the photo above doesn’t take your breath away, we don’t know what will. Here the swimming pool has become part of the landscape and the landscaping complements the pool beautifully, especially at night. The scene in daylight is not nearly as breathtaking because of the way each illuminated plant is reflected in the smooth water at night. Here you see landscape lighting in Summerville SC at its best.
