Have you ever stumbled up your walkway in the dark or tried to see your pet in your backyard at night? Once the sun goes down, navigating your outside areas near your home can be difficult and unsafe. It is very common for individuals to be injured when they cannot see where they are walking. Make your home safe day and night with quality outdoor lighting.
Add Walkway and Area Lights
The two main safety lights for homes are surrounding walking areas and general area lighting. These two types of lighting are the most practical in outdoor lighting, used mainly for safety and security, not aesthetics. However, there is no reason that lights that are functional cannot also be attractive.
For walkways, there are many options to illuminate both your front sidewalk leading to your home as well as any walkways in your backyard. Runway lights are a soft way to provide a lighted path, available in hardwired, plug in and solar options. You can also use lamp posts for more light surrounding walkways.
Area or flood lights are used to illuminate larger areas such as your porch, patio, driveway or backyard. These are great for providing safety when you have nighttime gatherings or the kids are playing outside at night. They are also used to increase security for your home, often with motion detectors to deter intruders.
Don’t let the long winter nights make your outdoor areas unsafe. Call your local landscape contractor that offers outdoor lighting installation to add walkway and area lights to your home. It will help increase your safety and security around your home at night.
