Tips to Enjoy Your Deck at Night

Sometimes the summer is just too hot to bear during the daytime, rendering your deck useless during the dog days. But what about at night? With the sun out of the way, summer is the perfect season to enjoy your deck at night. 

At Harmony Decking, we want to ensure that you are able to make the most out of your outdoor living space – even after sunset. Here we’ll explain some of our favorite easy modifications to allow you to enjoy your deck at night all summer long. 


From moody twinkle lights to practical rail lights, deck lighting is a practical way to add some beauty to your outdoor space. As a bonus, it makes your deck safer to navigate when you party all night long. 

Bug Repellant

Nothing ruins a beautiful night like a bunch of bug bites. While wearing bug spray 24/7 may help keep those pesky mosquitoes at bay, it isn’t the most practical option. To keep your outdoor space bug free, consider installing a fan or two to create a light breeze, decorating with plants known to repel bugs (such as marigolds, lavender, and catnip), and eliminate sources of standing water. These are prime locations for mosquitoes and other pests to breed. 

Get Cozy

It may still be summertime, but the temps can drop pretty low at night. Benches with built in storage are a great way to keep blankets within easy reach. Want to keep it extra toasty? A patio heater is a great way to pack some serious warmth and enjoy your deck long into fall.
