As the nights grow longer in the fall, outdoor lighting can become an essential element. When gathering with friends or loved ones or simply relaxing for a drink, lighting can play an important role in keeping you and your guests safe and happy. 

The right outdoor lighting can drastically improve the look and feel of any outdoor space, and at The Site Group, we’ve seen this proven in multiple projects. Clients love to add lights of all shapes, sizes and color variations to their decks, patios, gardens or even pools. We’ll show you our favorite lighting options we’ve used to complement our clients’ spaces over the years.

String Lights

String lights have an undeniable charm, and there’s a reason they have become so popular in many modern spaces, both indoor and outdoor. They are incredibly versatile and can be draped along a fence, wound around a pergola or hung above a patio. These delicate lights create a warm, inviting atmosphere where loved ones will no doubt be excited to gather for some great conversation and memory making. Opt for classic white bulbs for an elegant touch, or embrace the festive spirit with multicolored choices.

Pathway Lighting

Illuminate your garden paths and walkways by leading the way with pathway lighting. Solar-powered or low-voltage LED lights can be placed along the edges of greenery or sidewalks, which not only ensures the safety of you and your guests, but also casts a gentle glow around your space. Enjoy the tranquil sights and sounds of nature as you lead guests through your illuminated landscaping.

Fire Pits

What better way to add warmth to your outdoor space than with the natural glow of a fire feature? Combine the allure of firelight with the convenience of outdoor lighting to create a mesmerizing focal point. The Site Group has designed and installed dozens of fire features by poolsides, on patios and in various other spots for our clients’ enjoyment.

Underwater Lighting

Underwater lighting has a charm unlike any other, adding a fun touch to any pool party. With the right planning and design, lighting can transform any pool into a captivating oasis, enhancing the look of the refreshing water and the rest of your space. Lights embedded in the pool walls can even feature a range of colors, setting the mood for a nighttime swim or a relaxing poolside evening.
