At Custom Lighting of Suffolk, we've seen a wide range of backyard requests over the years. From outdoor lighting and entertainment systems to irrigation controls and more, our customers have a wide range of needs and desires when it comes to their outdoor spaces. In this post, we'll discuss some of our most popular backyard requests and explore the trends that are driving these requests.

1. Outdoor Lighting

Outdoor lighting is one of our most popular requests, and for good reason. With the right outdoor lighting, you can transform your backyard into a beautiful and inviting space that's perfect for entertaining, relaxing, or simply enjoying the great outdoors. From path lighting and accent lighting to security lighting and more, our customers love the flexibility and convenience that outdoor lighting provides.

2. Outdoor Entertainment Systems

Another popular request is outdoor entertainment systems. With an outdoor entertainment system, you can create the ultimate backyard experience, complete with outdoor TVs, speakers, bars, and more. Our customers love the convenience of being able to enjoy their favorite movies, shows, and music while relaxing in their backyard oasis.

3. Automated Pool and Spa Controls

Automated pool and spa controls are also in high demand. With automated controls, you can easily control your pool and spa temperature, jets, and lighting from your smartphone or other mobile device. Plus, with automation, you can ensure that your pool and spa are always ready when you are, without wasting energy or resources.

4. Irrigation Controls

Irrigation controls are another popular request, especially in areas with limited water resources. With irrigation controls, you can automate your sprinkler system, ensuring that your lawn and garden always get the right amount of water without wasting resources.

5. Outdoor Kitchens

Finally, outdoor kitchens are becoming increasingly popular. With an outdoor kitchen, you can take your backyard entertaining to the next level, with everything from grills and pizza ovens to refrigerators and sinks. Our customers love the convenience of being able to cook and entertain in their backyard oasis, without having to go back and forth to the indoor kitchen.

We'll work closely with your designer to provide the proper power for each of your appliances as well as any additional needs in the outdoor kitchen area such as GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupter outlets) and lighting.

At CLOS, we're committed to helping our customers create the ultimate backyard experience. Whether you're looking for outdoor lighting, entertainment systems, pool and spa controls, irrigation controls, or anything else, we have the expertise and experience to help you achieve your goals.
