We have gone over the aesthetic benefits installing outdoor lighting to the exterior of your home. It allows you to highlight certain areas of your property and landscape that you are proud of, your luscious garden, or brand new patio for example. Illuminating these areas gives your house a bright and clean look, especially in the dark hours of the night. While landscape lighting may leave your neighbors in awe, outdoor lighting has added safety and security benefits as well!
Safety Benefits of Outdoor Lighting
Outdoor lighting can be placed strategically to both add curb appeal to your home, as well as increase the safety of your entire property. A common practice is to install walkway or path lighting along routes to and from your home. This allows visitors to easily navigate their way to and from your home in the dark. In the winter, pathways may be wet or icy, and the added lighting will allow you to carefully avoid the icy patches. Visitors will come to your home and may be distracted by the beauty of your well-lit home, but the path lighting will ensure they keep their footing. Well placed zone lights can be focused on potential danger areas and can help avoid any accidents.
Secure your Property with Landscape Lighting
Having an overall well-lit home in itself is a valuable security factor. Not only does it provide a sense of security for you and your family but may also deter any potential intruders or trespassers from unwelcomely entering your property. Motion activated lights are an extremely common component of any outdoor lighting system. Motion activated lights shine brightly when any movement is detected. If anyone is bold enough to continue snooping through your property and then is blasted with a bright beam of light, they are sure to be startled away. Motion activated lights can detect animals movements as well, so if there are any critters rummaging around your yard, they too will be shocked by the light and scurry off into the night.
