Although we primarily serve residential properties, our lawn care and lighting services also extend to commercial properties. While commercial properties are typically larger and require a more comprehensive range of lawn care services, they also tend to be the location of significant events.

This is where our outdoor lighting services come in handy, illuminating any outdoor area for your friends, family, and co-workers. You can have these lights installed in various colors and styles.

Whether you are planning a birthday, wedding, or holiday-themed event, outdoor lighting will surely enhance the guest experience. Below, we discuss the many benefits of outdoor event lighting and why you should contact Higher Ground for your next event.

Benefits of Adding Outdoor Event Lighting

Your outdoor venues can benefit from well-appointed lighting fixtures, especially for late afternoon and evening events. Not only are these visually appealing additions to your venue, but they also serve functionally to improve your spaces’ safety, visual appeal, and overall mood. These are some of the advantages of using event lighting in your outdoor events.

Improved Event Safety

Regardless of your aesthetic preferences or the type of event, an increase in outdoor event lighting makes everyone involved safer. With proper lighting, you can reduce the number of dark areas and blind spots prone to accidents, falls, or pests prowling your venue.

Additionally, well-lit outdoor venues are less likely to have vulnerable points that could be used for criminal activity. The addition of lighting will decrease the potential for theft, trespassing, and general illegal activity. If your guests feel like your event is safe and secure, attendance will be high, and a good time will be had.

Risk Mitigation

A well-lit landscape also allows for guests to be safer as they traverse your property, easily seeing ledges, stairs, and walkways. If someone is injured at your event, there is a potential for them to hold you liable, and it would be hard to argue your fault when the event was entirely illuminated. If your guests can easily see their surroundings, you avoid the potential of an accident in the first place, and you never want to see anyone get hurt.

Aesthetic Appeal

Moving away from the functional benefits of outdoor event lighting and into the primary reason you install outdoor lighting: their looks. The best part about working with a professional like Higher Ground is that we can custom-tailor your lighting to the specific event you are holding.

For example, a Halloween party may feature orange LED lighting, or an outdoor wedding might show off classy overhead string lighting. When you work directly with Higher Ground, our team will consult you on your needs and develop a bespoke design to meet them.

Enhanced Mood and Social Engagement

Simply put, people are likely to have a good time when the outdoor venue is professionally lit. Well-appointed venues make for good company, so when your outdoor event is beautifully lit, your attendees will feel more comfortable.

Achieve an engaging crowd that feels comfortable in your outdoor spaces through well-designed outdoor lighting features. Through this, you can improve the general mood for your event and increase the probability of productive social engagement.

Where To Add Event Outdoor Lighting

Although you may be interested in adding outdoor lighting to set the scene, you might be wondering how to apply lighting fixtures that complement your outdoor setting. There are plenty of ways to incorporate outdoor lighting without the fixtures sticking out or getting in the way. These are some of the most common ways we’ve added outdoor lighting, though feel free to contact us for more recommendations and special requests.

Uplighting in Trees for Visual Interest

Beautiful landscaping and greenery may not be visible after sunset, which could negate the purpose of holding events in outdoor venues. You can add light to the foliage and trees through carefully designed event outdoor lighting to complement the event venue.
Wrap a string of lights around the trunk and branches, or use unique hanging lights to hang over the branches and give your venue a stylish overhead glow.

Spotlights To Highlight Important Areas

Have a spotlight on the central area of your outdoor venue. This could be brighter than your decorative lights on sites like your stage or dancefloor. For multiple important areas scattered throughout the venue, these spotlights can strategically lead your guests to your event’s various features.

Pathway Lights To Guide Guests

Stylish and functional, pathway lighting guides your guests around your outdoor venue. When used strategically, outdoor event lighting can direct guests to designated areas, block off unused sites, and ensure everyone knows where to find your event. It is also a safety feature for outdoor venues with unstable or uneven ground.

Patio & Deck Lighting

Add light and vibrance to your enclosed outdoor spaces with patio and deck lighting. Lighting spread evenly around the perimeter can draw the eyes around the room and give the appearance of a larger area. Overhead lights illuminate the rest of your event and can be styled to your venue and event’s theme.

Colored Lighting

Add colored lighting to boost the mood and visual appeal for informal outdoor events. Use bold colors to add dramatic flair to themed parties, or set the mood with understated colored event lighting outdoors. We can tailor our lighting designs to fit your vision.

Accent Lighting

Direct your guests’ attention to the landscaping, stage, decks, or any other outdoor venue features. When used correctly, accent lights highlight your venue’s features while blending seamlessly with the rest of the venue’s decor.
