Installing or upgrading an outdoor lighting system adds many benefits to your home. In addition to increasing your safety and security, landscape lighting is designed specifically for your home to highlight beautiful areas and increase the functionality of your home.
Enhanced Visual Appeal
Properly installed outdoor lighting enhances the look of your home as a well thought out lighting plan can transform your dark home into a bold, illuminated showplace. With proper positioning, your outdoor lights can make the architectural features of your home stand out, creating an enchanting facade after sundown.
You can also use these lights to create an inviting curb appeal. Intricate architectural details can all be highlighted, your favorite tree can light the branches and yard below, and garden walls and other focal points can come to life at night.
A dark home is an attractive target for potential burglars. Our LED lighting systems are not just long-lasting and energy-efficient, but they are also bright. This makes your home less inviting to potential intruders since there are no shadows or dark spots to provide cover.
One often overlooked benefit of landscape lighting is the insurance credit that your insurance company may offer for increasing the security of your home by installing exterior lighting.
Added Level of Safety
Landscape lighting also allows a homeowner or visitor a better view of the area when arriving at night. The increased visibility will decrease the chances of your family or guests tripping and falling. Strategic illumination of problem areas in your yard and along pathways can help avoid unfortunate accidents and mishaps.
Upgraded Outdoor Space Functionality
Landscape lighting can also play a pivotal role in the way you use your outdoor spaces. Outdoor parties or activities that take place at night can be potentially dangerous with dark areas obscuring uneven paths and cracked sidewalks, but proper lighting eliminates that risk. If you’re not using a deck or patio after the sun goes down, you aren’t making the most out of your outdoor spaces.
