Pergolas are the Perfect Nighttime Hot Spot When they have Perfect Outdoor Lighting

Wilmington is a gorgeous place to live, especially for those who love the outdoors. The beach is right down the road and our weather, except for the occasional storm, is mild, especially at night. Because the nights are so beautiful here in the Port City, outdoors is where you, your friends, and family should be whenever possible. This past week, we installed an outdoor lighting system for a client who was looking to complete his outdoor retreat. We were thrilled to give his outdoor living space an ambiance that makes going inside a devastating endeavor.

Backyard lighting


Our client recently built a beautiful pergola, creating a striking outdoor living space complete with a fire pit and grill. As beautiful as it is during the day, we had to make the space usable and lovely after sunset. We got right to work using our solid copper deck fixtures on the four stone columns that support the structure. We built a custom bracket to secure these lights to the stone, as they normally attach to deck posts. The lights provide a rich ambient, halogen glow that gives easy visibility without blinding brightness. Also enhances the relaxing, romantic mood on the patio – we are proud of the effect these lights created. We used our copper spot light to illuminate the grill and fire pit areas. In order to allow our client more control, we put the grill light on its own switch so the focus can be removed from the area after the chef is done preparing his feast.

Garden Lighting


The finished project is an outdoor living area that family and friends can use anytime the great Wilmington outdoors calls their names. Rather than just being an outdoor area, the pergola really is an outdoor living space, made charming, functional, and safe with the perfect outdoor lighting system. Happy client are our number one goal, and we sure achieved it here.

If you are adding an outdoor living space, like a pergola, deck, or patio, or if you already have one, imagine what a difference outdoor lighting will make. Being able to use it throughout the night, as place to relax, eat, and share experiences with family and friends means a whole new lifestyle.
