Adding outdoor living spaces can have a significant impact on how we enjoy our homes. Not only can they be used for entertaining friends and family, but they also provide some much needed peace and quiet away from indoors. To really make the most of these areas, one of the best things you can do is add landscape lighting.

Outdoor Landscape Lighting for Patios
The patio is a perfect place to gather with friends and family for socializing, dining al fresco, or simply enjoying the warmth of a cozy fire pit. To create an inviting atmosphere in this larger outdoor living space you’ll want ambient lighting that adds both ambiance and safety benefits—not forgetting decorative accents like string lights which can give your patio an extra special feeling when celebrating.
Outdoor Landscape Lighting for Walkways
Installing outdoor lighting for your walkways is more than just a striking effect, it can also make nighttime travel through the outdoors safer. Directing this ambient light downwards creates an ambiance to highlight the beautiful textures and colors of brick pavers or natural stone slabs without any glare.
Outdoor Landscape Lighting for Retaining Walls
Create depth and texture with your retaining walls by installing outdoor lighting. Downward-facing lights can bring out the exceptional features of the structures along these walls including their flowerbeds and shrubs, all while avoiding uncomfortable glares.

We just had our old concrete patio replaced with a beautiful paver patio and we LOVE it! We used Mario who was wonderful, and I would highly recommend! He was extremely responsive to our phone calls and questions and everyone we worked with was extremely professional. Mario sat with me for over an hour as we made our decision on the perfect stones to match our yard and the siding and roof, and when it came time to do the installation, the staff couldn’t have been nicer and efficient! We love our patio so much and had such a great experience that we want to add on a fire pit, seating area, and built in grill for next year!
Ricky and his crew truly delivered. From the planning stages through completion Ricky was responsive, timely and gave us a clear expectation of all aspects of the project. The project started on time and finished on schedule. The installation crew did a great job making sure everything was done right and kept everything as clean and organized as possible while the project was going. We are thrilled with our new patio.
Mario at Pavestone is the best. He was a pleasure to work with. We didn’t know exactly what we wanted in a paver patio but Mario was patient with us and talked through a few designs, showed us the unilock catalog and helped us narrow it down. He gave insightful recommendations and never made us feel rushed or pressured and definitely no upselling!!! If you want proper old school customer service just ask for Mario. Once we scheduled the work, they had a crew of about 5 or 6 and it only took them 4 days. The attention to detail was wonderful. They laid down plywood to make sure they didn’t destroy the grass in-between the house. They were prompt and cleaned up every day. They did a fantastic job and did not rush through any of it. We couldn’t be happier. We LOVE our beautiful patio from Pavestone!
