Custom, Upscale Illumination for Your Patio & Landscape

You’ve invested a lot in your patio, and it shows.

Whether your having cocktails out on your patio amongst your beautiful gardens and trees or taking some time for yourself in the nighttime air, our designer illumination will light up your night with elegance and sophistication.

At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives, we use multiple lighting techniques to illuminate your patio. Some of these techniques include:


By installing fixtures high up in a tree that shine light down through the leaves and branches, moonlighting creates a lovely, gentle glow over your patio. A professional tree climber and electrician will find the perfect spot to install the light so that it mimics the effects of the moon, creating dancing shadows with a perfect, natural, ambient light.


While you’re on your patio, you want to enjoy your exquisite surroundings. By highlighting your surrounding gardens, flower beds, and trees with a technique known as landscape lighting, a luminous glow appears over your landscape, highlighting your focal points. Landscape lighting is warm and inviting, creating a welcome feeling for an occasion.


Patios often have vertical stone and hardscape features such as outdoor fireplaces, kitchens, bars, and sitting walls. At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives we strategically mount hardscape lights under the capstone so that you can see its gorgeous texture as light washes across the stone or brick. This much-loved technique beautifully illuminates colors and textures, a beautiful vision for all eyes to see.

Uplighting is used to illuminate the exterior of your home, patio, garden, and other landscape features. Lighting fixtures are inconspicuous as they softly illuminate colors and textures and integrate other vertical structures in your landscape such as pergolas, trellises, walls, and planters.


Downlighting is a technique used when your patio sits adjacent to your home. By positioning the light high on your house, the light shines softly down onto your patio without a trace of harsh glare. The ambient light creates a gentle glow that elegantly ties together the structure of your home with your outdoor space.


There’s nothing that says fun more than café lighting. A growing trend, café lighting creates a festive atmosphere for any occasion. At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives, we design and install café lighting that you can use all year long. Our high-quality LED lights are durable and flexible to fit various spaces, regardless of size and shape, making it a fantastic, unique choice for entertaining into the nighttime hours.
