How to Enjoy Your Outdoor Spaces in Winter
Winters in Wisconsin and Illinois can feel like months-long indoor hibernation. The sun sets before dinner, the temperature drops, and soon enough, snow seems to block out any semblance of your once-beloved outdoor entertaining space. There are still many excellent ways to continue to enjoy your outdoor spaces throughout the entire winter. Landscape lighting is the perfect way to transition out into your winter patio wonderland and truly enjoy your outdoor spaces in winter.
Start by envisioning your outdoor winter space. Will you be indulging in alluring privacy, entertaining friends and family with a twinkle, or enjoying luminous activities with your children? Mike’s Landscape Lighting can help turn your vision into reality and your once-unused outdoor spaces into warmed-up winter retreats.
A well-lit hot tub is a perfect way to unwind in the privacy of your backyard. Whether you enjoy a relaxing soak after a long day at work or watch movies in the mist on the weekend, nothing beats an evening in that warm, bubbly water. Create an appealing dimension around your hot tub with accent and landscape lighting. Ensure safe entries and exits by including well-lit steps and paths to and from the hot tub. The difference between a warm bath and a winter oasis is all in the lighting. The contrast between dark, crisp December air and a glowy, steaming hot tub space is extraordinary.
FIRE PITS and ENTERTAINING
Fire pits are another great way to enjoy your outdoor space in the winter months. While a fire pit does provide minimal light, take your space to the next level with strategically placed illumination to guarantee a more inviting space. Add fireside seating, cozy blankets, and an outdoor bar cart to create a charming entertainment area. Friends and family will enjoy roasting marshmallows, sipping mulled cider (might we suggest a splash of bourbon?), or simply swapping stories in warmth on your cozy patio. Amp up the sparkle with Mike’s Landscape Lighting’s signature outdoor party and event lighting. The work will be done for you!
Make the winter holidays magical for your children by creating a fun family space outdoors. Outdoor holiday lighting and patio heaters will transform your space into an outdoor “fam cave.” Add a projector, some sleeping bags, and Mike’s Landscape Lighting’s professionally installed outdoor sound system to create the perfect mini theatre for family movie night. Use your sound system to play your children’s favorite Christmas songs while drinking hot chocolate and enjoying Christmas cookies on the patio.
We can help you enjoy your outdoor space in the winter.
