You spend a lot of time and effort making your home and yard look so good, why hide it all at night? Landscape lighting is a great way to showcase your home’s architecture, your beautifully-designed hardscape, and your gorgeous flower bed. In this blog post, we’ll explain the benefits of landscape lighting and why you may want to invest in it.
1. Curb Appeal
When properly installed, landscape lighting can highlight your home’s best features. Those french doors you just installed, the tall columns on your porch and your dormers can all be accentuated with exterior lighting. Water features, designed flower beds, trees, and other focal points can also come to life with strategically placed lighting.
2. Improved Security & Safety
In addition to visual appeal, exterior lighting also doubles as security. Strategically placed lights along pathways and steps will make your home safer by allowing for increased visibility. And lights placed around the perimeter of your home and garage will help deter break-in attempts.
Do you have a mother-in-law suite, detached garage or swimming pool? These often go overlooked. But you can create an overall look that works in harmony with your current exterior lighting. Soffit lighting can enhance the architecture of garage doors or any detached space. While pool lighting can create dramatic effects and colors.
Regardless of how big or small, your home is, landscape lighting can highlight its best features, adding dimension and flair. A well-designed lighting plan can transform a dark and dull property into a look of elegance, providing a huge advantage when it comes to selling.
