Landscape Lighting Benefits

Installing landscape lighting is a great way to boost your home’s curb appeal and add value to it. Studies show that an outdoor lighting system can increase property value by 20% or more. The right landscape lighting can improve the mood of your landscape. Landscape lighting allows you to highlight landscape design features and enjoy your landscape at night.

Here are some compelling reasons to install landscape lighting near you.

Enhance Safety and Security

Backyards have areas where intruders and nocturnal animals can hide. The last thing you want is being ambushed by a burglar or a dangerous animal at night. Landscape lighting can illuminate your landscape, so you and your guests can enjoy your landscape without worrying about stepping on a snake or some other dangerous nocturnal animal at night. Also, burglars are less likely to target a well-lit home than a poorly-lit property. Landscape lighting can also make it easier for you and your guests to move around safely when enjoying your landscape at night. Without landscape lighting, you or your guests are likely to slip, trip, or fall and sustain an injury while navigating your landscape.

Extends Your Living Area

Landscape lighting can help expand your living area and entertaining space. Even if you have a spacious home, your guests may prefer spending time outdoors, breathing in fresh air, and sky-gazing. A well-lit landscape allows you to throw outdoor parties in summer. The right landscape lighting will make your landscape look and feel more inviting and improve its ambiance.

Improves the Esthetic Appeal of Your Home

Landscape lighting can revitalize a tired, uninspired yard to give it a new lease of life. It can help create a focal point and transform your property into the jewel of the neighborhood. You can also use landscape lighting to highlight architectural details or draw attention to a well-manicured garden. The right landscape lighting can add character and a timeless charm to your property. A well-lit landscape looks great all year long.

Factors to Consider When Choosing Landscape Lighting

  1. Your current setup. If you do not have a setup, hire an electrician to design one.

  2. The cost of the lighting system you are considering.

  3. Decide if you want to decorate your landscape with cool or warm lighting colors.

  4. The durability of the type of landscape lighting you are considering. When it comes to durability, LED lights are one of the best options.

  5. The right wattage for your needs. We recommend using lower wattage bulbs outdoors.
