We can grow a variety of trees here in the Tampa, Clearwater and St. Petersburg areas of Florida, including our fabulous palms. The outdoor lighting designers of Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Clearwater & Tampa Bay treat your trees like a statuesque work of art when it comes to lighting them, and you wouldn’t believe the multitude of effects we can create with tree illumination!
Even if you do not have sculpture, art or hardscaping in your landscape, a single tree can be lit up at night to act as an incredible architectural statement that can give dramatic flair into a yard that may be lacking any real focal point.
We can make even the simplest tree look like an elegant beauty when dramatically accented with uplighting set a foot or two away from the base of the trunk. We can shoot delicate rays of light into the branches and canopy of leaves for an ethereal appeal that sets a romantic mood when nightfall comes. Tree trunks with lots of texture really have their chance to shine with this type of targeted light. Trees appear taller and fuller with properly executed uplighting.
We can add glorious drama to the draping fronds of a palm tree through expert shadowing created by artful downlighting that shows off their wispy movement in the breeze. This magical effect gives the feeling of your trees being kissed by the moonlight, and your whole lawn appears to glitter from the beautiful shadows that are projected downward.
We can highlight a single ornamental tree or a whole row lining your driveway with equal ease. Lighting a line or cluster of trees not only makes them look gorgeous in the dappled light, but it has the added bonus of making it easy to see when you walk or drive down your driveway.
We don’t treat every tree the same at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Clearwater & Tampa Bay. Every one of them has their unique character depending on size and overall shape. So, each one is given special treatment when making decisions as to what type of fixture to go with. We also take into consideration whether the tree is evergreen or deciduous as well since it needs to be lit year round.
The bark on a Paper or River Birch can look stunning in the winter as we play up the peeling surface, and the wide branching of a towering live oak with Spanish moss can be utterly theatrical when we cast a warm glow upwards. Don’t let your prized trees which add tons of value to your home slip into darkness when it comes to landscape lighting. Lighting your home and immediate beds certainly are recommended but don’t forget to add sparkle by highlighting a few of your trees to give architectural dazzle in the evening light, too.
