Check out some of the ways we can enhance your desert home through outdoor lighting! 

Desert landscape 


When it comes to landscape in the desert, many homes feature amazing cacti, palms, and rock work. Adding lighting to these elements enhances the beauty of the landscape and creates a great backdrop to your home and outdoor living space. 

Our goal when lighting landscape is to not over light, but to highlight all the beauty with a soft, warmly toned light. When we keep the temperature of the bulb soft and warm, it enhances all the features of each piece of desert foliage.

Pool area 


Let’s face it, it’s HOT in St. George, therefore many homes have pools to find relief from that heat. Pool lighting goes way beyond the interior of the pool. It is important to light the pool’s deck and the surrounding areas to help you and your guests traverse the area safely! 

Path lights to walkways, tread lights to stairs, or moonlighting to illuminate the deck are simple ways to create ambiance and provide safety to a pool area. If you have a pergola, bistro lighting is a great way to add character to the space! 

Fire pit area


If you have a fire pit area, lighting is essential! Although the fire itself gives off light, the surrounding areas can benefit greatly from an additional light source. Whether that light source is path lights leading up to the fire area, or undercap lights for permanent sitting walls or the pit itself, these lights provide a much needed safety element to the space. Illuminating the area allows you and your guests to go to and from the fire pit area with ease, and it also creates an additional level of ambiance! 

Outdoor kitchens 


There are a few ways to illuminate an outdoor kitchen or dining area. We are able to add lighting under the counter tops to take your space to a whole new level. We can also add lighting to your grill to help you see what you are cooking. 

Adding downlighting to a pergola or cover can help with dining! It allows you and your guests to see what you are eating. It also creates a great atmosphere to the space. Score!
