Enjoy the Benefits of Outdoor Lighting

Published on: March 3, 2014

There are a variety of ways that you can benefit from adding outdoor lighting to your landscape.

Safety Benefits

For example, consider the following:

  • Well–lit walkways, sidewalks, and paths help visitors and your family to safely navigate and walk.
  • Zone lighting is an excellent way to eliminate special or selected areas of your property during the night. Homeowners often use zone lighting for both landscape and hardscape elements, including decks, patios, pools, and gardens.
  • Illuminating your driveway and garage also help to make your property and landscape safer throughout the night.

Security Benefits

Landscapes and yards with adequate lighting create feelings of security.

Also, outdoor lighting makes people view your home, yard, and landscape as maintained, and properly care for. Furthermore, trespassers and thieves are often discouraged when they see a home with a well-lit landscape.

Another consideration is the installation of lights with motion detectors. Dark areas of your landscape can be quickly flooded with light, the moment anyone crosses those areas with motion-sensor lights. This is an excellent way to deter trespassers, burglars, and other would-be criminals.

Comfort Benefits

Being limited to indoor living areas can become a bit stuffy and uncomfortable after a while.

A solution is for you to extend your home’s living, and social areas to your home’s exterior. Adding outdoor lighting to your landscape, deck, or patio allows you and your guests to sit or socialize comfortably outdoors after dark. In addition, attractive outdoor lighting not only creates an inviting and pleasant outdoor seating area, but it also enhances your home’s exterior decor and beauty.
