Create a Vineyard-Like Ambience in Your Backyard This Fall

It’s as Easy as Adding Landscape Lighting!

When September swings into view, she brings with her thoughts of falling leaves, cooler weather, jeans, flannel shirts and—of course— wineries. Fortunately, in and around Basking Ridge, NJ, fall wine tastings at local wineries are plentiful. Many times, these beautiful vineyards welcome you with their stone walkways, paver patios, beautiful landscapes and trellises adorned with twinkling white lights. As you sip your wine, you often look around and dream about creating a similarly lighted oasis in your own backyard.

Well, stop dreaming. The time to make your wish come true is now. Fall is the absolute perfect time of year to make over your patio and garden with some quality landscape lighting. Castle Point Landscape Design can turn that dull backyard into a picture-perfect sanctuary. If you’d like, we can even create an ambience that resembles a quaintly lit vineyard!

Head Toward the Light

So, do we have you sold yet? If you’re still in need of added assurance, here are five reasons to consider upgrading your landscaping with some top-notch professional lighting:

  1. Curb appeal. Impress your neighbors and guests with the way your lighting highlights your gardens and shadows those architectural structures.
  2. Safety. If you enjoy outdoor entertaining and sipping wine into the dark hours of the evening, lighted walkways and stairs will help guide you and your guests.
  3. Increased property value. Patios with upgraded lighting are sure to wow homebuyers if you ever decide to sell—increasing your home’s worth. 
  4. Security. When your gardens, patios and walkways are well lit, you gain a greater sense of security. An illuminated property not only looks nice, but it can also deter potential intruders.
  5. Seasonal use. If your deck or patio has seating for entertaining, extra lighting will allow for later nights sitting around with friends socializing.

Choose the Variety That Suits Your Taste!

When you’re ready to take the illuminating plunge, remember this: Just as different grapes create different types of wine, different types of lighting can create different moods. All you need to do is determine the effect you want your lighting to create. Some popular styles we offer include:

  • Uplighting
  • Area lighting
  • Shadowing
  • Path lighting
  • Highlighting
  • Accent lighting

The professional lighting experts at Castle Point Landscape Design can transform any garden spot into an expertly lit haven.
