Electrify Your Yard for Summer

One of the great joys of living in Colorado is our beautiful summer evenings. Cool, dry and mostly bug-free, the outdoors becomes true living space extending for more than half a year or 180 days in the Centennial State. Take advantage of our seasonal calm by building a stylish outdoor area. Ninety-nine percent of the time, that involves installing electrical service.

Well-placed directional lighting is the ideal backdrop for entertaining under the stars. Directional lights replace the harsh glare of porch or flood lights. Landscape up-lighting highlights the beauty of plantings and architectural features in the yard. Water features like fountains and pools add extra enjoyment and luxury. And outdoor kitchens are replacing worn-out Weber grills as must-haves for BBQ fanatics and serious chefs alike.

Safety doesn’t take a back seat to beauty, either. Steps and pathways can be lit attractively with soft low-energy LED lighting that’s switched, photo-electric or motion-activated.

Less can be more with well-placed lights that show off the best features of your yard while leaving less attractive areas literally in the dark. Landscaping lighting should be installed to attract the eye. Underwater lighting can make a pond or water feature glimmer. Don’t overlook the drama of shadows, either. Install lights that skim interesting architectural surfaces to bring out their beauty. Putting your outdoor lights on dimmers lets you set a relaxing mood while giving plenty of light when it’s needed for tasks.

Almost every type of fixture is available in a weatherproof outdoor version—wall sconces, track lights, and recessed. You can even get ceiling fans suitable for outdoor use to create your own gentle breeze when the evening turns warm and sultry.

Outdoor wiring is often of two types: household current for higher-voltage lighting, pumps and convenience outlets, and low-voltage for landscapes and mood lighting. Because it lives outdoors, wiring is subject to water and other environmental stresses and needs to be located safely away from areas that may be disturbed such as garden beds. A good plan is the place to start, and a nice design will show your outdoor spaces at their year-round best.
