Summer has left the building. While the heat seemed to hang on forever, we have finally experienced the much-anticipated autumn cool down. With cool nights and warm days, autumn in Brunswick County is a gorgeous transitional time. A time for apple orchards, pumpkin patches, hikes in the woods and the much anticipated sweater-weather. With shorter days and longer nights, making the most of this short season takes perfect planning. With Brunswick County outdoor lighting, you can maximize your enjoyment of the not-too-hot/not-too-cold autumn.
Fall is a perfect time to enjoy your outdoor spaces. After taking advantage of warm afternoons with a hike in the woods, retreat to your patio for an enjoyable evening with friends, a loved one, or just a perfect glass of wine or beer. To maximize your enjoyment, we recommend Brunswick County hardscape lighting.
Brunswick County Hardscape Lighting Ideas
HARDSCAPE LIGHTING FOR PATIOS AND STONE WALLS
Gorgeous paver and stone patios are becoming more popular than ever. From travertine and flagstone to natural-looking concrete pavers, patios are becoming so much more than a concrete slab. With gorgeous custom designs featuring landscape walls for built-in seating and other vertical accessories, hardscape lighting is a lovely choice for creating a nighttime oasis.
HARDSCAPE LIGHTING FOR FIRE PITS & FIREPLACES
Outdoor fireplaces and fire pits have become the must-have patio accessory. Providing a perfect meeting space for conversing with friends and family in front of a warm flicking flame, fire pits and fireplaces are essential to staying outdoors after the sun sets this autumn. While your fire may provide some romantic lighting, it can be difficult to see where to set your snack or drink or where the sitting wall begins and ends. With ambient hardscape lighting tucked under your capstones or along the bottom of your stone surround, you can enjoy easy visibility with or without your fire.
HARDSCAPE LIGHTING FOR OUTDOOR KITCHENS & COUNTERTOPS
Nothing completes a new paver patio like an outdoor kitchen. Today’s outdoor kitchens can be as simple as a small counter space and stone facade to house your stainless steel grill, all the way to a complete kitchen featuring a refrigerator, grill top, smoker, large prep space, a bar top counter, and electricity for small appliances. In either case, some task lighting will allow for easy meal preparation and entertaining after dark. With the sun setting as early as five and weather still cooperating, hardscape lighting for your outdoor kitchen will ensure your favorite place to cook is not collecting dust this fall and winter.
