From Front Yard to Back Yard, Show Us Your Favorite Spots!
One way we make your outdoor lighting unique is to work with the specific elements on your property. Do you have a fire feature or water feature? A pool? Outdoor living spaces such as a deck or patio? Statues or other outdoor art? Trees? Yes, trees! Many Charleston-area homes are graced with beautiful palms, palmettos and stately live oaks. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charleston is your customized outdoor lighting designer in Charleston, SC. Only by customizing an outdoor lighting plan just for you can we make the most of the beautiful features we find at your home.
Why make something beautiful even more beautiful? Why not? Here in Mount Pleasant, SC, we all pretty much agree that we have the most beautiful landscaping compared to any other location in the country. With our dramatic and stately trees, especially the exotic palm trees and oak trees the Charleston and Mount Pleasant SC areas are famous for, we love to show them off!
Enjoy the Unique Palm Tree Lighting Mount Pleasant SC is Famous For … at Night, too!
Nature treats us very well in Mount Pleasant. We have a pleasant climate. Yes, Mount Pleasant gets hot and humid sometimes, but many of us choose to live here because we don’t enjoy freezing-cold winters. Along with a vacation-worthy climate, nature provides us with beautiful, unique palm trees and oak trees.
You know the saying, “If you’ve got it, flaunt it!” Not everyone expresses themselves in that way, but those words seem fitting for the dramatic beauty of our oak trees and palm trees. We appreciate their wild beauty in the daytime, so why let them go dark at night?
In darkness, those same trees can seem mysterious and beckoning, especially if we have a breeze stirring up mischief! Why not have Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charleston add a little magic to that mischief with just the right amount of subtle outdoor lighting? The magic begins when your professional outdoor lighting consultant meets with you to talk about what you want from palm tree and oak tree lighting on your property.
What’s Unique about Palm Tree Lighting in Mount Pleasant?
We wouldn’t blame you if you’re thinking, What’s so unique about that? Many residents, locals and newcomers alike, think most palm trees look alike and most oak trees look alike. We don’t see it that way! Because Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charleston’s designers and technicians see so many of these trees – it’s what we do! – we see their similarities and we see their differences.
What we see is that each tree is unique. Each client’s property is unique as well. To give these trees, and your landscaping, the high-quality illumination they deserve, we take the time to study your beautiful trees. Our job is to determine which trees will deliver the greatest impact when illuminated. Our professional landscape lighting designers always create a unique lighting plan for each property we illuminate.
Do You Have Favorites Among the Variety of Palms and Palmettos in Mount Pleasant?
The more you get to know the various types of trees and recognize their differences, the more you appreciate their beauty. The effects of landscape lighting draw the attention of neighbors passing by. Guests approaching your home for the first time will be impressed with your trees. They may not even realize what draws their attention! In the hands of a talented landscape lighting professional, you see the natural beauty. Do you also see the way tree lighting seems to pull a tree forward in contrast with the dark backdrop behind it? Illumination of your beautiful trees gives your property an extra dimension that unilluminated trees simply cannot provide.
Are you intrigued? Would you like to learn more about the unique palm tree lighting Mount Pleasant SC homeowners have come to appreciate?
If you didn’t get (or give!) the Charleston outdoor lighting you wanted as a gift during the holidays, it’s not too late! Take comfort in the fact that each year, when the Christmas holidays end, you do not lose access to the wonder of custom-designed, year-round outdoor lighting at your home. In fact, outdoor lighting is the perfect, late holiday gift whether it’s for yourself or someone else!
Sure, Christmas was almost a month ago. The holiday decorations have been stored away for next Christmas. You exchanged gifts with family and friends. Haven’t we all had that experience where you drop hints for months and still didn’t receive the gift you wanted most? Or perhaps you were so busy during the holidays you ran out of time to arrange an outdoor lighting design consultation. It doesn’t matter if you missed the opportunity to “wrap” the gift of outdoor lighting and place it under the Christmas tree or in a stocking. It’s not too late to present this awesome gift!
If the gift you wanted – but didn’t receive — was professionally-designed, year-round outdoor lighting at your Charleston-area home, don’t give up on that! Treat yourself!
Enjoy the Outdoor Lighting Charleston, SC Wears to Transform Any Landscape
There’s a reason Charleston, SC, homeowners love professional outdoor lighting so much. We have some of the most beautiful landscaping in the world here – especially our exquisite palm trees and palmettos. Our skilled lighting designers know how to showcase all of the area’s beautiful trees and other plants quite effectively. We have the experience and training to add nuance to your landscaping at night, and the results are always stunning.

When You Imagine Outdoor Lighting at Your Home, What Do You See?
Your home is unique, so we will custom design outdoor lighting specifically for your home to address your family’s needs.
Are you mainly interested in nighttime curb appeal, with outdoor lighting concentrated in the front yard, especially illuminating your home’s façade?
Is nighttime safety at your home a concern? We can make each of these areas safer with landscape lighting:
Walkways and paths
Outdoor steps and stairs
Uneven ground or change in elevation
Are you hoping that outdoor lighting around your deck, patio or pool will extend your enjoyment of these outdoor living areas? (It will!)
Do you see in your mind’s eye landscape lighting that will illuminate and showcase your beautiful gardens and flower beds?
Do you have fire features, water features or outdoor sculpture on your property? These will take on greater depth and dimension when illuminated at night, adding to their beauty. The effects can be stunning!
We’re Here to Help You Select the Perfect Outdoor Lighting for Your Home
Your lighting design professionals at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charleston won’t leave you to walk the aisles of a store trying to determine which outdoor fixtures and wiring you’ll need. We have everything you’ll need, and we bring it to you – and install it, too!
You may know of a neighbor or friend who purchased their own equipment and installed their own outdoor lighting. We don’t recommend that – unless you happen to be a professional outdoor lighting designer yourself.
You don’t have to wait until next Christmas to present someone – or yourself – with the gift of year-round outdoor lighting. Don’t let a simple “calendar issue” keep you from enjoying the professional outdoor lighting Charleston, SC wears so well.
As residents of Folly Beach, SC, you are fortunate to be able to enjoy the outdoors almost every day of the year. As sure as night follows day, there are plenty of nights you aren’t ready to go inside just because the sun has set. This is one of the biggest reasons you need landscape lighting at your Folly Beach home – and especially around your home’s outdoor living areas.
Outdoor Living Is Not the Only Reason to Install Landscape Lighting
Of course, there are several other reasons you need landscape lighting at your Folly Beach, SC, home. We are so focused on outdoor living around here sometimes it’s easy to forget. Let’s look at additional reasons we hear most often when homeowners talk about why they want to have landscape lighting installed.
Nighttime Curb Appeal
Everyone knows a home that’s beautiful on the outside has more curb appeal, but what people forget is that’s only in the daylight. Once the sun sets, your home loses that curb appeal if you have nothing but a poor, little porch light to guide visitors. Landscape lighting brings your property to life and restores curb appeal after dark.
When your home and your yard are illuminated with a warm and welcoming glow, guests feel graciously beckoned inside. The right amount of illumination says, “We’re expecting you!” and, “Come on in! We’re so glad you’re here!”
Pathway lighting is a form of landscape lighting that increases safe passage around your property. Anywhere you have a walkway, path, stepping stones or stairs, you should have enough pathway lighting to ensure people can see where they are walking. Even driveway safety increases with path lighting.
Showing Off Your Yard’s Best Features
Yes, beauty for the sake of beauty is to be enjoyed. If you have exquisite trees, exotic plants or beautiful flowers, let us illuminate them so you and your guests can appreciate their glory. We also recommend illuminating other features of your landscape such as water features, fire features, statues and other forms of outdoor art. Gazebos, pergolas and trellises can be dramatic when gently illuminated.
Folly Beach SC Homeowners are Passionate about Outdoor Living
You love your patio, deck and pool surround. An outdoor kitchen, pergola or fire feature enhances these favorite areas. You can enhance them even more by adding landscape lighting. The landscape lighting Folly Beach SC residents enjoy most will increase the number of hours each day you can truly live in your outdoor living areas. Many days, the time after sunset is when the temperature is perfect and you enjoy being outdoors the most.
When your professional landscape lighting designer from Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charleston visits your home for a consultation, show us your outdoor oasis. Tell us whether your patio is used more for dining and relaxing with family or entertaining dozens at a time. Show us the areas where you spend the most time outdoors. Let us know if you would like festive party lighting, subtle lighting for ambiance or both! Yes, both! We can set up two types of landscape lighting and you can decide which you want to use any given evening. It’s your home, and you’re in control!
The landscape lighting we design for your outdoor living areas will depend on what trees, shrubs, flowers and other plantings make up your landscape. We will create a completely custom design for your home based on what plants you have and how they are configured in relation to your outdoor living structures. Every home is unique and your landscape lighting design will be unique, too!
Destination Landscape Lighting Folly Beach SC
You’re familiar with destination weddings. Now we have destination landscape lighting. Your home will be everyone’s favorite destination when you have your Folly Beach landscape lighting professionally designed and installed. Don’t spend your precious time trying to figure it out; just give us a call and we will take care of everything. Outdoor lighting is all we do, and landscape lighting is our specialty. We love illuminating Folly Beach SC properties with landscape lighting. The beauty of the palm trees and palmettos, the yucca plants, the hibiscus, oleander and lantana – everything that grows is even more dramatic and beautiful at night with landscape lighting.
Coastal living is special. The right landscape lighting makes it even more special.
What is it we all love so much about outdoor holiday lighting, and why can’t we have something as lovely as that all year long?
Some kinds of holiday lighting bring out the kids in us, especially the colorful lights wrapped around trees and draped along rooflines. They bring to mind the frenzy of excited children opening presents on Christmas morning, tearing bright bows and giftwrap and shrieking in delight.
Many homeowners prefer more sophisticated displays of holiday lighting with strings of gentle white lights adorning trees, rooflines and porch railings. The warm, monochromatic glow instills a feeling of peacefulness and reverence.
Beyond the Holidays, in Search of Year-Round Outdoor Landscape Lighting
Does your yard feel barren and bleak when you take down the holiday lights? Each year, the time comes when the holidays are over and we must pack up the special lights and store them away. Wouldn’t you love to have year-round outdoor lighting that instills the same feelings of warmth and peacefulness? Permanent outdoor lighting that you don’t have to take down at the end of any one season?
We have the perfect year-round outdoor lighting for you! The most elegant and alluring landscape lighting Charleston SC has to offer comes from Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charleston. We design and install professional outdoor lighting throughout the Charleston SC area. As you look through the photos on our website, you can see we create landscape lighting displays as warm and elegant as any you’ll find during the holidays. We tastefully illuminate your home and your yard to create the effects you desire.
Surround Your Home with the Landscape Lighting Charleston SC Loves
We offer a free outdoor lighting design consultation at your home. When our lighting designer meets with you, be sure to tell them you want landscape lighting that delivers the ethereal warmth of an elegant outdoor holiday lighting display. We have different kinds of outdoor lighting fixtures and landscape lighting techniques to deliver the results you want.
There really is no reason your beautiful yard needs to go dark after the holidays. That’s just depressing! A better idea is this: each year when you take your holiday lights down, simply flip the switch to turn your beautiful year-round landscape lighting back on. Your home can present a warm, welcoming glow any time of the year. You’ll love it, and your neighbors will, too!
By the way, if you are looking for an outdoor holiday lighting service, look no farther than Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charleston. We can design a fresh seasonal lighting display for your yard, install the lights and make sure everything looks perfect. After the holidays we’ll return and take those holiday lights down.

If you have trees on your Mount Pleasant, SC, property, we have the lights to show them off. Do you love trees? Some people do love trees, while to others that may sound like a silly question. Here at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charleston, we love trees, especially when they are illuminated at night.
If you haven’t seen your home’s trees enhanced by the glow of landscape lighting at night, you are in for a wonderful surprise. Trees can be beautiful in the daylight, but they can also blend in with all of the background scenery. You may walk or drive past your trees every day and rarely notice them.
But at night? Wow! A tree with the correct landscape lighting at night is not just magical, it’s mystical.
Tree lighting is a specialized kind of landscape lighting, and it’s one of our favorite things about the work we do. Our professional lighting designers are artists using light, and nowhere is it more evident than in tree lighting, especially in the beautiful trees throughout the Mount Pleasant area.
The Process of Tree Lighting at your Mount Pleasant SC Home
The first thing you need to know is that we won’t create your landscape lighting plan without you. What we mean by that is it’s important for us to know what trees you want to illuminate. Our lighting designer will create a custom design for lighting the trees in your yard, and we want to know which are your favorites.
Our outdoor lighting designers know that a little bit of light can often be enough to create the desired effect. We are not in favor of lighting every tree in your landscape. Your tree lighting will be most effective if together we select a handful of trees to illuminate. It’s hard to put an exact number on that without seeing your property first. We’ll combine your favorites with our experience at spotting the trees we can light most effectively. Together we’ll come up with the best lighting plan for your property. Sometimes there is one focal tree that cannot be ignored. In that case we may step down the lighting for other trees so we won’t draw attention away from that focal tree. Every yard is different!
Please Leave Lighting Design to the Professionals!
While you can purchase outdoor lighting equipment at a home improvement store, most homeowners don’t have the skill or experience with outdoor lighting to make that purchase a good investment. Unless you have talent and training for landscape lighting, leave the tree illumination to the professionals at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charleston. We are experts at creating intrigue by using just the right equipment for lighting each tree selected for your lighting design. We know which light fixtures to use on which trees, and we are skilled at making sure you notice the effects of the light rather than the light source itself.
Various Styles of Tree Lighting in Our Toolbox
Using the right lighting techniques allows our lighting designers to highlight trees that might not stand out during the day. Here are a few of our lighting techniques.
Uplighting is probably the most frequently-used style of tree lighting and is best for taller trees. We may choose to highlight the trunk of a grand tree if it is especially interesting, as many are! For lower trees we might use uplighting to illuminate a tree’s canopy to bring the tree out of hiding and create drama.
Moonlighting is one of our favorite techniques, and it’s effective in taller trees. We actually go up into the tree and install light fixtures aimed down through the branches to the ground below. The effect is that of natural moonlight shining down through the tree. With moonlighting brought to your Mount Pleasant home, courtesy of Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charleston, you can have a full moon every night.
Other tree lighting techniques include Silhouetting and Shadowing which involve moving the placement of light fixtures either behind or in front of a tree. We use these techniques sparingly and only where they will be especially effective.
We don’t want to give away all of our trade secrets! Let’s just say that our job is to amaze you with the beautiful effects of tree lighting at your home, and we take that job seriously. Don’t be surprised if your neighbors call us, too, after they see how beautiful your tree lighting turns out.
We Want to be Your Tree Lighting Company in Mount Pleasant SC
Call us to come meet with you for a free outdoor lighting consultation, and let us design a tree lighting display that will transform your property each night. You’ll be amazed at what we can do, since we work during the daylight hours. Once your lights have been installed, we’ll come back after dark to make sure we have achieved the desired effects. If not, we’ll make the necessary adjustments. We believe you’ll agree there is no better tree lighting company in Mount Pleasant SC.

When your biggest decision is whether or not to have your outdoor holiday lights twinkle, Christmas cannot be far away. If you have installed the same bunch of holiday lights every year, they may be quite bedraggled by now. Even if you have been adding a few more light strings each year, do you really want to keep tackling the work of installing those lights yourself?
It’s possible that when you first purchased your holiday lights you had no choice other than to hang them yourself, but those days are over! Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charleston, the outdoor Christmas lighting installer Charleston SC turns to, is ready and able to take care of this annual chore for you.
What do you gain when you hire a professional outdoor holiday lighting installation company in Charleston SC to install your outdoor holiday lights?
Time -That’s right, you can have more time to do things you enjoy when you allow us to install your outdoor holiday lights. Whether you want lights along the roofline, tastefully-lighted wreaths or your favorite palm tree trunks wrapped in lights, you don’t need to grapple with those little bulbs and huge wires yourself. Let Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charleston do the grappling for you!
Experience -We’re not suggesting you will gain experience personally, but by choosing to let our lighting technicians install your outdoor holiday lighting, you benefit from our years of experience on the job. Our installation technicians are pros at this. It’s what we do!
Safety -If home safety is high on your list, then let someone else climb the ladder and take on the dangerous outdoor tasks. You may not think of lighting installation as dangerous, but reaching along rooflines while balancing on a tall ladder can be dangerous, especially if it’s something you only do once a year. While homeowners are usually safety conscious, many fail to consider the dangers of installing their own outdoor holiday lighting. Call us instead; Outdoor Lighting Perspectives is your outdoor holiday lighting installation company in Charleston SC.
Design Updates -When you grow tired of your holiday outdoor lighting design, let us know and we can bring in new strings of lights and other lighted holiday décor for your home’s exterior and yard. There’s no need for you to trudge through stores looking for newer and better lighting features. We have already done that part for you.
Storage -Where have you been storing your outdoor holiday lights? If you keep them in the attic, there’s another chore we can take off your plate. No one enjoys climbing those attic stairs and hauling down a mass of outdoor lighting. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charleston will store your holiday lighting – wires, bulbs and all – so you don’t have to deal with it.
You Can Rely on the Outdoor Christmas Lighting Installer Charleston SC Prefers
Letting Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charleston design, refresh, install and store your holiday lights just makes sense. Don’t spend another Christmas season trying to do it yourself. It’s time to pass the torch!
Whether your Mount Pleasant SC home has a deck, or a dock, or both … you need to find a good deck and dock lighting company for two reasons: safety and beauty. There is a certain outdoor lighting company we can recommend for the job: Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charleston. Yes, that is us.
We are unmatched for deck and dock lighting, and equally adept at both. If you have both a deck and a dock, what better idea than to have outdoor lighting installed for them both at the same time? They will match! (If you are a man, ask your wife or significant other about this.) Seriously, it makes so much sense to have one professional outdoor lighting designer come out to your property and design a lighting plan for your deck and your dock at the same time. They will match. Having different lighting styles designed for these two destinations at your home would not be good.
Now that we have that question settled, let’s look at the two biggest reasons to install deck and dock lighting at your Mount Pleasant home: safety and beauty.
Safety Matters – On the Deck and On the Dock
When you hear about deck safety, it’s often in the context of decks crashing to the ground, but assuming you have a well-built deck, let’s look at another kind of deck safety. The most dangerous place on a deck can be the stairs. Having a deck without stair lighting is practically negligent. If integrated stair lighting was not included with your deck when it was built, we can add tiny LED lights on stair risers. These little, energy-efficient lights will make all the difference in keeping your family and guests safe on your deck stairs.
Lights on the dock are just as important for safety, if not more so. It gets mighty dark out on the water around Mount Pleasant at night, which makes your dock mighty dark, too. What comes to mind for some people when they think of dock lighting is that single light on a pole at the end of the dock. You can do much better than that! And you will, when you call Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charleston to add dock lighting. It won’t be a one-size-fits-all job, either. We will custom-design a lighting plan for your dock with safety in mind. There is no reason why one part of your dock should be safer than another. Evenly-spaced lights will treat each section of your dock with respect.
Beauty Enhances Your Outdoor Living Experience
When we talked about adding lights to stair risers for deck safety, we didn’t mean for you to stop there. Safety is great; we want to increase your safety on the deck. But what about the ambiance? What about the way subtle deck lighting can add hours of good “deck time”? What about the way deck lighting can cast a spell over your deck, removing it from reality so it’s a place to go and forget the cares of the world? If you have trees over or around your deck, let’s not leave them out. The beauty of elegant landscape lighting in trees and shrubs around your deck is one of the finer experiences of Mount Pleasant living.
If you live on the water, when the sun sets it takes your dock with it … if you don’t have dock lighting. Flip the switch to illuminate the dock and _wow, suddenly you’re in a whole different place. Whether you’re actually out on the dock or back on shore looking out, illumination along a dock shifts it into another dimension – a beautiful one. We’re not talking about lights that are visible from outer space, though. Because a little lighting reflected on the water can be plenty, our outdoor lighting designers are conservative when it comes to dock lighting. We want to enhance your outdoor experience. We want your view of the dock to be stunning.
Your deck and dock lighting company in Mount Pleasant SC
As we mentioned at the top, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charleston is the preferred deck and dock lighting company in Mount Pleasant SC. If you need to be convinced, just look at our customers’ reviews here and toward the bottom of our home page on this website. We know this area. We know the Lowcountry, its specific vegetation and how to install outdoor lighting here to greatest effect. You can do no better in Mount Pleasant than Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charleston.
If you haven’t considered outdoor lighting as a security feature at your home or business, you should. We feel strongly about this, so when you schedule a lighting design consultation with Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charleston, we will suggest you include security lighting in your outdoor lighting design plan.
Every home and business is unique, so our specific recommendations for security lighting will be tailored to your location.
Can Outdoor Lighting Designed to Enhance Your Home’s Beauty also Increase Security?
Yes. The good news is that we can include security lighting in the outdoor lighting plan we create to enhance the beauty of your landscaping and your home’s façade at night. The same energy-efficient LED outdoor light fixtures can be used for both purposes simultaneously.
That doesn’t mean that any and all outdoor lighting will automatically increase security at your home or business. What it means is that when we design an outdoor lighting plan for you, we can place some of the fixtures specifically in a position to serve as a deterrent to crime. The placement and angle of these fixtures will make the difference. Our objective will be to erase dark areas where would-be intruders could hide and enter your home unseen. These photos show the difference security lighting can make:
Statistically, a well-illuminated home is less likely to be targeted by intruders than other homes on the same street. If this is one of your goals for outdoor lighting, we won’t just make sure your home is well-illuminated. We will pay close attention to eliminating pockets of darkness around potential entrance points. Do the following photos tell the story?
Do You Need a Special Outdoor Security Lighting Installer in Charleston SC?
We could answer that question in two ways. Yes, and no.
Yes: You do need to select an outdoor lighting company that specializes in security lighting. You need to choose a company that is completely devoted to outdoor lighting, not one that provides lighting as a sideline. For example, we don’t recommend you choose a landscaping company to provide your security lighting. They specialize in plants, landscape design and maintenance, not lighting. Lighting would be a side job for that company. At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charleston, professional outdoor lighting is all we do.
No: You don’t need to search for a lighting company that only provides security lighting and no other kind of outdoor lighting services. That’s a little too specialized. What you want is a company like Outdoor Lighting Perspectives that provides a full range of outdoor lighting services, including security lighting. Here are some more examples of our work:
We take this aspect of our job very seriously. When we meet with you for an outdoor lighting consultation, we will ask if you want to incorporate security lighting into your lighting design. If you have any questions, please give us a call. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charleston is your outdoor security lighting installer in Charleston SC.

“Something’s always going on in Goose Creek,” they say, but if it were going on at your house, outdoors, at night … could you see it? Without professional outdoor lighting around your home, your driveway, your deck, pool or patio, chances are it would be too dark there for you to see it.
With your permission, we would like to help you shine some carefully-placed light on your home and landscape at night. With the right kind of outdoor lighting in Goose Creek SC, you could be enjoying the outdoors around your home more at night.
How do we know this? Because our many clients have told us, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charleston, that they got their “yard back at night” after we installed outdoor lighting on their property. Your home, too, can become an outdoor lighting success story with just one phone call.
“Why Do I Need Outdoor Lighting Around My Goose Creek SC House at Night?”
If you drive around a neighborhood where many of the homes have special outdoor lighting installed, you imagine those homeowners all know something that people in the other homes don’t know. “There’s something about outdoor lighting … it makes a difference when I want to … and it really helps me when I … and it keeps my kids safer, too.”
How would you finish those sentences if you had professional outdoor lighting installed at your home?
“There’s something about outdoor lighting that makes my house and my yard exceptionally beautiful at night. I love the way the lights make the house show up from the street—not too bright, but enough to make it stand out, in a good way.”
“Outdoor lighting makes a difference when I want to sit out on the patio with my guests, late into the night. We’re in our own little world, our own circle of light, and it feels mellow and relaxing. We don’t have to go inside after dark or squint to make out someone’s facial expressions when they’re telling another one of their wild stories.”
“Outdoor lighting really helps me when I’m trying to show people where to go down the path to the pool. With those little path lights along the way, I can send them on ahead while I go back into the house to finish getting everything we need for snacks and drinks at the pool.”
“Outdoor lighting keeps my kids safer, too. Now that we have lights around the deck and the deck stairs I don’t have to worry about them every time they run up and down from the deck to the yard.”
“Why Do I Need Outdoor Lighting Around My Goose Creek SC House at Night?”
Outdoor lighting enhances the beauty of your home at night.
It makes your favorite trees, flowers and plants visible at night so you can enjoy looking at them.
It welcomes your visitors and shows them how to get around your yard safely.
It extends the number of hours you can enjoy using your outdoor living spaces.
It makes your home safer at night and discourages prowlers.
It makes you happy to turn into your driveway after a late night out.
It makes you proud of your home when you see it from the street at night.
“Are There Different Kinds of Outdoor Lighting in Goose Creek SC?”
An excellent question. There are two primary types of residential outdoor lighting: architectural lighting and landscape lighting.
We use the first type, architectural lighting, to highlight the most beautiful or interesting features of your home’s façade at night, and the effect can be beautiful and dramatic.
We use the second type, landscape lighting, to show off your favorite trees and other plants at night. Our clients who keep beautiful rose gardens or azaleas or beds of lilies love to illuminate their flower beds at night so they can sit out on the porch and enjoy them.
We also use landscape lighting to illuminate special features in your yard such as a fountain, a statue or a pond with a waterfall. If you have any kind of art in your yard, you’ll love having a light on it at night even for your own enjoyment.
“What Else Do I Need To Know About Outdoor Lighting in Goose Creek SC?”
There is a lot more to talk about, so why don’t you give us a call to set an appointment? We’ll come out to your home and provide you with a free outdoor lighting design consultation. We will even set up a free nighttime lighting demonstration at your home so you can see how effective outdoor lighting would be there.
The residents of Summerville, SC, the birthplace of sweet tea, know a thing or two about plants and landscaping—the perfect match for a company that knows oodles about landscape lighting. The town that calls itself The Flower Town in the Pines has an abundance of flowering shrubs, regal pine trees and private and public gardens. The company that calls itself Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charleston has more expertise than anyone else when it comes to the best landscape lighting for Summerville homes.
When we’re designing a landscape lighting plan for a Summerville residence, the question is “What’s not to light?” In this profession it’s understood that a little lighting goes a long way, and you can’t light every beautiful tree and plant in a landscape full of beautiful plantings.
Let’s take a look at some of our favorite elements to illuminate within these beautiful Summerville, SC, landscapes.
Water Features Will Always Make the Cut
No matter how many beautiful elements you have throughout your Summerville landscape, if you have a fountain, pond or other water feature, those will always be included in your landscape lighting plan. Nothing else matches the splendor of a water feature gently illuminated against the dark backdrop of the nighttime landscape. Your professional lighting designer from Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charleston has just the right lighting technique for the task. We have a way of lighting a fountain, for example, from several different points at once to give it depth and dimension unlike anything else nearby. And a simple pond with a waterfall? The combination of the sight and sound of moving water delights the senses at night somehow differently than in the daytime sun.
When Your Garden IS an Oasis and HAS an Oasis
Many Summerville gardens have sections each more beautiful than the last. The setting pictured above shows just how elegant and effective landscape lighting can be. Simple low lights, similar to those used for pathway lighting, direct light down onto ornamental grasses and other low plants encircling this pool. Notice how the beautiful light fixtures—which you barely see because the focus is entirely on the plants—are hooded to prevent light shining straight up where it’s not needed. Then, across the pool, small trees are illuminated with a different kind of lighting. Low lights are placed at the base of the trees and angled up into the branches and leaves, illuminating the feathery structure of the trees beautifully.
The Beauty and Elegance of Landscape Lighting in Summerville SC
If the photo above doesn’t take your breath away, we don’t know what will. Here the swimming pool has become part of the landscape and the landscaping complements the pool beautifully, especially at night. The scene in daylight is not nearly as breathtaking because of the way each illuminated plant is reflected in the smooth water at night. Here you see landscape lighting in Summerville SC at its best.
Behind the Scenes in Summerville SC: How Landscape Lighting Gets Done
How do we transform your dark Summerville landscape into a scene of breathtaking beauty at night? When we meet with you at your home for a design consultation, our professional outdoor lighting designer will talk with you about what elements of your landscape mean the most to you. We will walk your property with you and take note of the various features within your landscape. If you want to see what our lighting design will look like before we actually install it, we will provide a free nighttime lighting demonstration at your home. Give us a call for more information about this offer.
Question: When do you need landscape lighting in Myrtle Beach, SC? Answer: When it’s dark outside!
OK, you may not have laughed if you are over age seven, but we are on a quest to raise awareness of the beauty of residential landscape lighting in the Myrtle Beach area.
If ever there was a landscape begging for landscape lighting, it’s the Myrtle Beach landscape. The elegant palm trees, palmettos, pampas grass and other ornamental grasses … all of this stunning coastal beauty we see in the daytime deserves to be seen at night, too.
Types of Myrtle Beach Landscape Lighting
Whether you live on a golf course, on the beach or in one of the many upscale neighborhoods around the Myrtle Beach area, chances are high your landscape includes more than a few beautiful trees, shrubs and gardens. If you don’t have landscape lighting at your home, you may not be aware of the different types of landscape lighting Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charleston features in the Myrtle Beach area.
We won’t try to cover the entire realm of coastal landscape lighting, but we want to familiarize you with some of the most popular techniques … and then you can call us for more information!
Palm Tree Lighting
Who doesn’t love a huge palm tree with fronds reaching high above all other trees around? For tree lighting, our lighting designer will select the perfect fixtures to send beams of light up the trunk of your tree and into the fronds. Just take a look at the magnificent lighting in the photo above. As an added bonus, you can see a small garden of flowers—roses, perhaps?—illuminated with landscape lighting as well.
If your patio is surrounded by shrubs, trees or ornamental grasses or if it features container gardens, you need patio lighting so you can enjoy this beauty after dark. Patio lighting sets an ambiance that can be relaxing and soothing—certainly welcome after a long day whether you’ve been working, golfing or shopping! Of course this could be true of deck lighting as well. Any patio or deck, large or small, will be enhanced by the landscape lighting Myrtle Beach SC needs more of!
Does the term path lighting sound familiar to you? Path lighting refers to low light fixtures placed carefully at the base of plants that line a path, driveway or walkway. The lights are angled to illuminate the walkway itself. Path lighting accomplishes two purposes at once: lighting your way for safe passage, and showing off the greenery that lines your walkways. Path lighting is subtle but extremely effective.
Find the Landscape Lighting Myrtle Beach SC Has Been Looking For
You won’t have to look far for us! Just give Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charleston a call to set up a free design consultation. Our professional lighting designer will visit your home and talk with you to gather the information we need to create a custom lighting design for your home. We want to know which of your flowers, trees and other plants you find the most beautiful. Which ones would give your home stunning “nighttime curb appeal” if they were professionally illuminated with landscape lighting?
Entrancing might be the best way to describe moonlighting, a favorite outdoor lighting technique that will turn your yard into a storybook setting. When you think of moonlight filtering through the trees, the effect is gentle and alluring. The problem is the moon is only that bright for several days each month, and if cloud cover sets in, you won’t see anything. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charleston is here to bring you moonlighting 365 days a year, and sometimes 366.
We call this outdoor lighting technique moonlighting because it mimics moonlight in the way it shines down through the trees. Our outdoor lighting designer will meet with you to take a look at which of the trees in your yard might be the best candidates for moonlighting. Ideally you would have at least one in the front yard and one in the back yard. Then your neighbors can enjoy it when they pass your home, you can enjoy it when you return home each evening and the family can enjoy it when you spend time together outdoors.
How do we create the stunning effect of moonlighting?
Our lighting technicians will place light fixtures approximately 35 feet up in your tree(s) and point them to shine down onto the ground below. The light filters through branches and leaves with amazing effects. The result is a subtle yet pleasant glow at ground level. The soft glow of moonlighting will cover approximately a 25-foot radius. If you have more trees nearby, we can arrange moonlighting over a larger area.
Where will you best use moonlighting?
Front yard or back yard? For maximum enjoyment of moonlighting outdoor lighting Charleston, SC, we say both! This technique is too great to use just once. When you see the results, you will be searching for more trees to participate.
In the front yard, moonlighting can increase nighttime curb appeal and be part of the warm welcome you extend to your guests and a gentle “hello” to passing neighbors. On a more practical level, moonlighting is an excellent way to light your driveway at night. Drivers will appreciate that there is no harsh spotlight shining in their eyes as they pull into the driveway or back out. You will appreciate that you no longer have light fixtures getting run over on the ground along the edge of your driveway.
In the back yard, moonlighting will bring a magical and romantic ambiance to your patio, deck or pool areas. As light filters through the trees, the natural interplay of light and shadow will lie quietly on still evenings and then dance when there’s a breeze about. The shadows of leaves and branches will weave a story on the ground below.
Not only will moonlighting create this magical effect, it will also increase your family’s safety by providing illumination so you can see where you are going when you cross the yard or walk from the driveway toward the house.
Would you like a demonstration of the moonlighting effect?
If you’re not yet certain that moonlighting is right for your yard, we are happy to provide a no-obligation nighttime demonstration at your home. After our initial (free) lighting design consultation, we will bring light fixtures to your home and set them up a little before sunset. Then, when darkness falls, we will turn on the lights so you can see the dramatic effects of moonlighting. You will see what it’s going to look like before you commit to a full installation. Where else can you get an offer like that?
No place on earth is more suited for landscape lighting than the Low Country of South Carolina, especially beautiful Kiawah Island. If your Kiawah property has even one palm tree, one stand of ornamental grasses or one live oak, you absolutely must have landscape lighting installed by Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charleston.
Landscape lighting in Kiawah Island, SC, is the icing on the cake, and what is a cake without icing? When the sun goes down, your property can either go dark or it can become a dramatically beautiful place where professionally-designed outdoor lighting works its magic.
The Beauty and Function of Landscape Lighting in an Island Setting
One of the awesome things about landscape lighting is that it serves two purposes simultaneously. It enhances the beauty of your yard while it also increases safety and security around your home. With landscape lighting you’re getting two for one every time the sun sets.
Illuminating the Island’s matchless beauty
Gently illuminating any landscape element at night reveals its beauty and lifts it up out of an otherwise dark setting. That would be true even for the simplest shrub. So when you take the amazing landscape that flourishes here at Kiawah Island, and enhance it with landscape lighting, you make the beautiful even more beautiful—if that is even possible. It is possible, and it happens here every night.
Professionally designed and installed landscape lighting will use subtle illumination in key areas around your property in a way that that culminates in a stunning display. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charleston will use just the right lighting techniques and fixtures to bring out the best of your gardens, your focus trees and any other elements you choose to feature. Our lighting designer will walk the property with you to determine where lighting can be used to the greatest effect.
Increasing the safety of your family and guests at night
When it’s dark out, the likelihood of tripping and falling increases, especially if your guests are not familiar with your property. With landscape lighting, we can light their way, so to speak, by using subtle path lighting along walkways. We’ll also illuminate shrubbery near the steps leading up to your home and steps to your deck to make every step safer.
Which is More Important, Landscape Lighting at the Front or Back of Your Kiawah Island Home?
From our point of view, the answer is, “Both.” It all depends on who your audience is. By audience, we mean who is going to see and appreciate—and enjoy—your landscape lighting the most, and where will they be, front or back?
Lighting in the front of your home shows off the landscape that’s visible from the street and driveway. Anyone passing will be impressed. We call this effect nighttime curb appeal. If other homes nearby are illuminated with landscape lighting, you certainly don’t want your home to be the one that is dark. If none of the nearby homes have installed outdoor lighting yet, let your home be the first and you will surely start a trend. The most beautiful street is one on which each landscape is illuminated at night.
Landscape lighting in the back of your home is more for you. It gives you the opportunity to appreciate the beauty of your back yard and gardens after dark while it increases your family’s enjoyment of your outdoor living spaces. What’s a deck, patio or pool without lighting? Outdoor lighting in the parts of your yard that you want to use at night will give you many more hours to enjoy them. Whether you’re relaxing with the family or entertaining friends, landscape lighting is essential for squeezing in more time outdoors.
There is no need to let your beautiful Kiawah Island palms and live oaks hide away in darkness at night. Share the beauty of your landscape at night with everyone who passes by, but most important, enjoy it for yourself.
Mount Pleasant, SC, is brimming with beautifully-landscaped yards, and your property is probably one of those. Can you see the beauty of it at night, or does it go dark as if nobody lives there? If you don’t have professionally designed and installed landscape lighting at your Mount Pleasant home, we need to talk.
There are two groups who will appreciate your landscaping at night if it is properly illuminated: the people who pass by, and the people who live there (you). Why not do everyone a favor and let people—including you and your family—enjoy your beautiful landscaping at night?
Selecting Which Landscape Features to Illuminate
The most important key to landscape lighting is that we don’t illuminate everything at once. Your professional lighting designer from Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charleston will ask for your guidance in deciding what to illuminate. While it may seem overwhelming at first, we don’t mean that you have to figure it out by yourself. As lighting designers, we know what kinds of trees, shrubs and flowers can be lighted most effectively. We’ll confer with you to learn your favorite specimens. What trees or other plantings in your yard would you most like to see at night?
Landscape Lighting in Your Front Yard Produces Curb Appeal
As we look around at the landscape elements of your front yard, we’ll consider those from the point of view of someone on the street. Whether they’re driving by on their way home from work or taking an after-dinner stroll, your landscape lighting will make a huge impression. In the front yard you may have a few especially beautiful trees, whether those are palm trees, live oaks or something different. Any of those will show up beautifully with landscape lighting. The effect will be dramatic. You may choose to light additional items in the front yard as well, perhaps shrubs directly along the front of your home. Again, we want to be selective because a little bit of outdoor lighting makes a statement, and too much will lose effectiveness.
Landscape Lighting in Your Back Yard Is for Your Enjoyment
You deserve to enjoy the beauty of your outdoors after dark. If you can see your gardens from the back porch, deck or patio, by all means let’s wash some light over them for your enjoyment. We have several techniques of landscape lighting to use at your Mount Pleasant home, depending on the size and shape of what we’re lighting. If you have a tree with a broad canopy, we will angle a light to highlight the expanse of it. If you have a very tall tree with an interesting trunk, we’ll illuminate the trunk. If you have a tree over a patio or deck, we have a beautiful technique called moonlighting that would work well there. For moonlighting we install subtle lights among the tree branches and direct them to shine down through the leaves. The effect is dreamy and hypnotic. It actually looks like moonlight shining through the tree. If you have formal gardens or any kind of garden with a path, we’ll use path lighting to illuminate the plants as well as light the way so you can see where to walk.
Landscape Lighting Shows Off Water and Fire Features As Well
Ponds, fountains and any kind of water feature, fire feature or statue are brought to life at night with landscape lighting. Water features can delight the senses by combining the aural with visual stimulus for an entrancing experience. Even though you can see and hear water trickling into a pond in the daytime, too, at night it is a completely different experience when lighting enters the scene. And while you’d think outdoor fireplaces and fire pits don’t need illumination because they provide light, we would have to disagree. When an outdoor fireplace is not being used, it becomes a beautiful feature of your yard if enhanced with outdoor lighting. When you do build a fire, landscape lighting can help your guests cross the yard safely from the house to the fireplace. Finally, illuminating a statue or some other type of art in your yard provides a visual treat for you and your guests outdoors at night.
Bringing Ambiance to Your Outdoor Living Spaces
If you don’t yet have outdoor lighting to enhance your deck, patio or pool areas, well, you should. You may be surprised how much more use these outdoor living spaces will get if we add a little landscape lighting in the area. Not too much—just enough to create a pleasant and relaxing ambiance by illuminating plants around the patio, deck or pool. We’ll also use light to make your deck stairs a little safer.
You may have gathered by now that Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charleston is the landscape lighting company in Mount Pleasant, SC, you want to call for your lighting installation. We know Mount Pleasant and the entire Charleston area. We know the landscape features prevalent here. We’re local, and if you need any assistance after your installation, we’re only a phone call away.

Illuminating the trunk of a tall tree draws attention to how grand and towering it is, which may be in contrast to other nearby trees. Illuminating the canopy of a tree with a wide, beautiful crown accentuates its reach over other nearby plants.
When we say that outdoor lighting enhances the beauty of your landscape, we’re referring to the overall effect of lighting several points throughout the yard. Think of your yard like a shadow box. Some figures are in the foreground, some are in the middle and some in the background. Lighting trees at various distances from the viewer adds depth and dimension to a landscape that would otherwise go flat after dark.
Follow Us to the Best Palm Tree Lighting Company in Charleston, SC
Around Charleston we have more than a few species of palm trees. Some are taller, upright, and some shorter ones are known as shrub palms. Examples of palms in our area are the Palmetto palm, Windmill palm, Sago palm (not a true palm), Saw palmetto, Canary palm, Fan palm and Sabal Minor.
Each palmetto and palm tree is absolutely beautiful. How do you choose which ones to light? That’s where your professional outdoor lighting designer comes in. We have done this before and have years of experience. When your lighting designer visits your property, he or she will make recommendations regarding which trees to illuminate for the best effect. While each tree is beautiful in its own right, we are also looking for the overall impact of lighting a select number of trees on your property based on their location.
The only palm tree lighting company in Charleston, SC, you want to call is Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charleston. We know palm trees. We know Charleston landscapes. We are true professionals when it comes to knowing what to illuminate and how to bring out the best of every palm tree upon which we focus. Do not take our title, “lighting designer,” lightly. That would be like comparing a tourist with a point-and-click camera to a professional photographer. The end result of our work is art.
Illuminating the Majesty of Charleston’s Live Oaks
Another signature tree in the Charleston area is the Live Oak. Each tree has unique character developed over centuries of growth in the humid breezes coming off of the rivers. That character is heightened by Spanish moss draping the branches of many Live Oak trees and projecting an aura of mystery. In the darkness these trees may seem spooky to some. With gentle lighting the trees no longer seem so spooky.
Moonlighting is the name for one of our most popular tree lighting techniques, and this is used to stunning effect in a live oak tree. We use our tallest ladders to reach up into the tree and install lights that shine down through the branches and leaves. At night this creates a mottled pattern of light and shadow below. If you can imagine a full moon shining down through your signature tree every night of the year, you have captured the essence of moonlighting.
What lighting techniques will work best with the trees in your yard? Work with the professionals. As your Charleston outdoor lighting specialists, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives will not disappoint.
As you spruced up your Pawleys Island home this spring, did you overlook the need for outdoor lighting? Whether you’ve had your island home for years, or this is your first summer here, it’s time you gave some thought to installing outdoor lighting at your Pawleys Island home.
Outdoor lighting isn’t just some trendy phrase that followed folks from the big-city suburbs here to the island. Outdoor lighting in Pawleys Island, SC, serves several purposes, and overall it is a wise investment for any island homeowner.
Maybe you’ve driven around Charleston or Savannah at night and seen elegant, well-lit homes and thought, Wow, I’d love to live in a house like that. Why not give your home the same allure, only in a beautiful island setting?
Top 4 Benefits of Outdoor Lighting in Pawleys Island, SC
The most obvious benefit is the way outdoor lighting enhances the beauty of your home at night. Whether your home is new or well-seasoned, elegant or charming, when the sun goes down a lot of elegance and charm are lost in darkness. A simple solution is to schedule an appointment for a free lighting consultation with Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charleston.
In addition to beauty, outdoor lighting offers increased safety and security. If you’re walking through your yard in the dark, what are you going to trip over? If you miss your step on a path or staircase, where will you fall? Outdoor lighting goes a long way toward eliminating accidents on your property. There is no need to come home to a dark house, either. The same outdoor lighting that enhances beauty also increases security at night.
Landscape lighting around your pool, deck, porch or patio increases the amount of time you can enjoy those outdoor living spaces. You don’t need to be driven indoors by darkness, nor do you need to rely on flickering candles or tiki torches to provide sufficient lighting. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charleston knows how important your outdoor living spaces are here on the island.
If you’re renting out your island home part of the year, the increased curb appeal that landscape lighting provides will draw vacationers who value an especially attractive and well-lit beach home.
How do I get outdoor lighting at my Pawleys Island home?
Excellent question! It’s actually quite easy, because we are very customer-oriented and we like to do the work for you. Once you schedule your free lighting design consultation, your work is done. Our professional outdoor lighting designer will arrive at your home, on time, and ask you for a tour of the property. We will ask questions about your goals for outdoor lighting. Some homeowners focus on safety and security goals, while others focus on enhancing beauty, and the good news is we can achieve both goals with the same lighting.
We’ll want to get more specific than that, though, because safety, security and beauty are very broad goals. Do you want landscape lighting, architectural lighting, path lighting, garden lighting, outdoor living space lighting—well, you get the idea! We’ll talk with you about what you want to light, and why, and we’ll offer our suggestions. After this meeting, our lighting designer will create a custom lighting plan specifically for your home and the goals you talked about.
If you’re confident you want outdoor lighting installed at your home, your next appointment will be with our lighting technicians who’ll conduct the installation. However, if you’re not yet convinced about the effectiveness of outdoor lighting, we also offer a free nighttime lighting demonstration. We’ll return with your custom lighting plan in hand and set up temporary lights just before sundown. After the sun sets, we’ll turn on the lights. This step usually washes away any doubts in the mind of a potential client.

We Customize Your Experience of Landscape Lighting On Sullivan’s Island SC
We won’t bring big spotlights and aim them at your trees with a glare. We have a way of delicately angling one light here and another one there until a series of discrete lights is playing your landscape and making it sing. In harmony. We have several different kinds of lighting fixtures designed to showcase different types of plants such as live oak trees, palm trees, flowering shrubs, rose beds and more. We can use uplighting that shines into a focus shrub, giving it new dimension, and downlighting that looks like the moon is shining down through your trees. We have gentle lights for your pathways and flower beds, and we’ll illuminate just those you select and leaving everything else to retreat into darkness.
You will be our partner in landscape lighting on Sullivan’s Island SC as we walk around your property with you and talk about your goals for lighting. You’ll select the plantings you want us to illuminate. We can explain the various lighting techniques and how they work with different kinds of plants, but ultimately the lighting plan we design is based on your preferences. All of the beauty that you’ve established to surround your home, including water features and statues, currently disappears at sunset. With landscape lighting, this beauty can be appreciated after dark, too.
Seeing Is Believing When It Comes to Landscape Lighting
If you’re uncertain about landscape lighting, or if you think our claims are exaggerated—sometimes people do!—we’ll be happy to set up a free nighttime lighting demonstration at your home. After we meet with you and create a lighting design for your property, we’ll return with temporary lights and set them up just before sundown. When the sun sets, we’ll turn the lights on, and you’ll get a pretty good idea what your permanent lighting design would look like. What you’ll find is that no matter how beautiful your property is, with landscape lighting it will glow with a different beauty not seen in the daytime.
Landscape lighting can illuminate shrubs and other plantings that line your driveway or walkways, where it also serves as safety lighting for your family and guests. You need never have a dark walkway again.
If you’re lucky enough to have one of Charleston’s beautiful courtyards at your home and haven’t yet looked into courtyard lighting, what are you waiting for? You’re going to be so amazed when you add professional lighting you’ll regret waiting this long. While the courtyard itself is already beautiful, when you add the right lighting at night, your courtyard will be transformed to another level of beauty. You may have seen this effect at someone else’s courtyard, but it’s even more powerful when the space you’re transforming is your own.
Notice we said “the right lighting.” A romantic Charleston courtyard is not the place to try your hand at Do-It-Yourself outdoor lighting. Only the best professionally designed and installed outdoor lighting will do a Charleston courtyard justice. Only Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charleston can handle this job to perfection. We live and breathe Charleston outdoor lighting every day. We know how to “do” Charleston right.
What makes outdoor courtyard lighting in Charleston, SC, so difficult? We didn’t exactly say it was difficult. Think of it like a work of art. If you don’t have talent as an artist, you can still purchase tubes of paint, a few brushes and a canvas. You can apply paint to the canvas. But you might not want to hang that painting in your living room.
Outdoor lighting, landscape lighting and especially outdoor courtyard lighting are not works of manual labor. They are works of art. For each Charleston courtyard we illuminate, we design a custom lighting plan to enhance the specific features in that courtyard. As no two courtyards or gardens are exactly alike, no two professional lighting designs are exactly alike.
Professional outdoor lighting designers have talent, we have skills and we have training specific to each different lighting technology in our toolbox. Talent led us into this profession, like a calling. Skills have made us good at this work. Training enables us to use each type of light fixture and light placement to the greatest effect. Add our remarkable customer service, and you have the essence of what makes Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charleston the best lighting company to trust with your courtyard.
If you have statues, other kinds of art or fountains in your Charleston courtyard, you’re in for an extra treat. We can custom design deliberate but subtle focus lighting to enhance each piece of art and each water feature. The courtyard is your oasis and your showpiece. You relish the time you’re able to spend there. What you’ll find with courtyard lighting is that first, it enhances the beauty of the place, the same beauty you see in the daylight. Then it adds another dimension of beauty achieved only through light and shadows, adding depth and texture to your already-beautiful setting. What are you waiting for?

Your Free Nighttime Outdoor Lighting Demonstration
First, we’ll meet with you at your Mount Pleasant home to walk the property and talk about what you would like to achieve with outdoor lighting. From this conversation, we’ll create a custom lighting plan designed to meet your goals and show your home in the very best light. Then we’ll schedule your free nighttime demonstration, and on that day we’ll arrive at your home approximately 30 minutes prior to sunset. Our designer will set up temporary lighting fixtures according to that design, and when the sun sets, we’ll flip the switch on. The typical homeowner’s response is to “Ooooh” and “Ahhhh” like it’s the 4th of July. You’ll be amazed at what we can accomplish.
It’s important to note that while architectural lighting and landscape lighting are remarkably beautiful, you’ll gain practical benefits as well. Lighting around your home can deter crime and increase the safety of your walkways and steps at night.
Types of Outdoor Lighting for Your Mount Pleasant Home
We use the highest-quality LED bulbs and fixtures. Our copper and brass fixtures will stand up to the elements and gain a gorgeous patina as they age. You may have heard in the past that LED lights were disappointing and gave off a bluish-white glow that was not flattering to landscape or architecture. That was true at one time, however, the technology has improved to the point that LED lights provide lighting as attractive as halogen lights do. Why does this matter? LED lights use up to 80% less energy than halogen. The savings on your monthly electric bill will be significant.
Our work to accent your home’s best features is more subtle than a bright spotlight pointed at your house. We’ll work with the textures of your home’s façade and bring out elements you might not even notice in the daytime. Effective architectural lighting says, “Welcome.”
Your prize lilies, the palm trees that each look unique, the majestic southern live oak trees, a fountain or water feature — any of these can be lit to create a vignette of depth and texture. While you may select focal points in your landscape to receive the attention, lighting along hedges and borders can also increase safety and visibility along your driveway and walkways.
Whether you have a formal garden or something a bit wilder, the right lighting will make a splash of color pop. Your garden at night may outshine its daytime counterpart.
Deck and Patio Lighting
Extend the pleasure of using your deck and patio into the wee hours. There’s no need to move the party indoors when the sun sets.
If you have a pool, the lighting effects can be magical with a combination of lights underwater and lights anchored in nearby landscaping or along retaining walls to outline the area. The effect of lights dancing on the water’s surface is truly mesmerizing. And for safety we’ll look at lighting the path or steps from your house to the pool.
If your waterfront home has dock access, we can light the area to increase safety and welcome your guests arriving by boat. Path lighting from the dock to the house is also a good idea.
We can do the exterior holiday decorating for you. Leave your ladders in the garage; we’ll bring our own. We can even store your holiday lights when you’re not displaying them.
Isle of Palms — the name says it all, doesn’t it? We have a wonderful variety of majestic palm trees here along with other beautiful, subtropical vegetation. And yet, when the sun goes down, much of this beauty disappears from sight.
Whether you’re a full-time or part-time resident of Isle of Palms, SC, you have to appreciate the beauty of our natural surroundings. Many homeowners make the most of nature’s gifts by further enhancing their property with exquisite landscaping. Whether you do the work yourself or hire a team of landscapers, a good bit of time, effort and money has gone into your landscape. Why let it go dark each evening? Bring your property to life after sunset every night with the magic of professionally designed and installed landscape lighting.
Landscape lighting in Isle of Palms has reached new heights, so of course you’re seeing it almost everywhere you go, on private property as well as at commercial establishments. Right from the start, landscape lighting serves two purposes for property owners: aesthetics and safety.
Landscape Lighting Delivers Beauty You Can Appreciate
As soon as you have professional landscape lighting installed at your home, you’ll wonder why you waited so long to add that level of beauty to your surroundings after dark. The effects are more transformative than you’d expect. Just the right amount of illumination, perfectly placed among your trees, flowers and shrubs, suddenly draws new depth and texture into view. It takes an experienced, professional company like Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charleston to work that magic.
Landscape Lighting Provides Increased Safety
Whether it’s path lighting or gently illuminating dark spots around your home, landscape lighting can increase the safety of your family and guests at night. When the walkways and outdoor steps are easier to see, you run less risk of stumbles and spills. What’s more, would-be intruders are deterred by well-lit sites.
Landscape Lighting Is Increasingly Affordable To Power Up
Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charleston uses LED outdoor lighting with the newest technology, and that creates a huge savings for homeowners. LED lighting uses 80% less energy than the halogen lights used outdoors previously, and we use only the highest-quality bulbs and fixtures. If the monthly hit to your electricity bill was holding you back, now is the time to let landscape lighting brighten your world. If you currently have an older, less energy-efficient system, ask us about retrofitting your fixtures and bulbs for monthly savings.
We offer the following advantages when you choose our trained and experienced professionals to design and install your landscape lighting:

Spring comes early in Charleston, and you’re already seeing signs of it everywhere. The urge to spend more time outdoors is kicking in. Whether you’re digging in the dirt already, or relaxing on the patio, it’s time to think about turning that patio into a place where people will want to gather after dark.
Just because you install party lights doesn’t mean you have to invite guests over every night. It does mean your patio will be well lit and will give off a celebratory vibe when the sun goes down each evening. Dining al fresco will suddenly become more inviting. Conversations that used to take place around the dinner table after the meal will likely move outdoors now. And when you do decide to entertain guests, your patio will already be festive and party-ready.
Festive lighting for your Charleston patio brings the added benefit of increasing your family’s and guests’ safety outdoors. With strings of lights running back and forth across the area, suddenly pathways and steps are well lit, too, and tripping hazards are no longer lurking in the shadows.
If you’ve seen those flimsy strings of party lights at the discount store, please don’t think that’s what Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charleston will install at your home. We use professional-grade lights that can stand up to the weather and stay outdoors permanently. Our lighting designer will visit your home and consult with you to determine where and how to string the festive lighting. If your patio doesn’t have a place to hang the lights, we’ll install poles to make it look just right.
So don’t wait for summer to start using your patio late into the evening. It’s time to enjoy the outdoors after dark now. Once you experience festive outdoor lighting at your home, you’ll wonder why you didn’t do this sooner.

Do your prized Charleston palm trees disappear as soon as the sun goes down? If so, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charleston has the knowledge and expertise to make sure your Charleston palms are visible and glowing long into the night. With the proper installation of some very subtle lighting fixtures, your Charleston palm trees will glow throughout the evening hours with just the right amount of illumination. The importance of having a professionally-installed tree lighting system cannot be overstated.
Do not attempt to do tree lighting yourself. Too many variables come into play when getting the best lighting effect for each palm tree. Every palm tree is unique; each one bends and curves in many different directions. It takes a true professional to properly light the many species of palm trees we have here in Charleston, South Carolina.
In our area, we have several species of palm trees, including the Sabal palmetto, Sabal minor, Pindo palm and Needle palm. Each of these species requires a different approach to achieve the optimal lighting effect. Through our superior knowledge of these trees and our dedication to perfection, we are able to ensure each palm tree is illuminated according to its own intricacies.
Some of the palm trees in Charleston reach 50 or 60 feet tall and require a narrow beam of light to achieve the perfect lighting effect. A tree that bends requires more distant lighting placed precisely to ensure that the entire tree is illuminated. Through the combination of our top-of-the-line lighting fixtures and unparalleled expertise in illuminating palm trees, no other company can compare to our results.
