It's the best time of the year. The days may be getting shorter, but Omaha's beautiful autumn weather makes it comfortable enough to spend more time outside long after the sun has gone down.
When it comes to enjoying your outdoor living areas or yard in the fall, the perfect outdoor lighting design can make all the difference. Along with extending the amount of time you can use your space, proper lighting can enhance its natural beauty while adding safety and security.
Browse some of our favorite fall landscape lighting design ideas that are perfect for enjoying the season from the comfort of your backyard.
LIGHTING OUTDOOR FIRE FEATURES
A cozy outdoor fire pit or fireplace is an ideal gathering spot to enjoy these crisp fall evenings. While the fire produces a certain amount of light, outdoor lighting can enhance the intricate details of your fire feature and transform your experience by creating a unique ambiance and increasing safety. Grab a blanket and get ready to take unwinding fireside to another level.
OUTDOOR COOKING & DINING LIGHTING
The welcoming break from the summer heat makes the idea of outdoor cooking and dining more appealing. But, as the sun sets earlier this time of the year, it can be challenging without proper lighting. If you ever tried grilling (or enjoying) the perfect steak in the dark, you know how hard it can be.
