As the temperatures rise over the next few months, the sun takes a little bit longer to catch up. But spending time outside is can be an evening option with the right lighting solutions. In addition to installing your hardscapes, we can also help you plan design, and install outdoor lighting solutions perfect for every season and occasion. Here are four primary reasons why you should consider outdoor lighting
1. Safety – Outdoor lighting can add safety to the outside of your home. Lighting up walkways can help prevent people from tripping or falling, and waltzing through your landscape. Zone lighting can illuminate specific areas of your yard, like a deck or patio. Finally, outdoor lighting, especially motion detecting lights, can be used around driveways and entrances for added safety and security.
2. Comfort – Outdoor lighting can extend your living areas in your yard and maximize the use of your hardscapes. The lights you use on your deck, patio, or around your pool, can help you enjoy your space no matter the time of day. The right lighting can also enhance your landscaping for a more inviting and enjoyable experience once the sun sets.
3. Décor – Outdoor lighting can be so much more than string lights or large, obnoxious security lights. Uplights can be used to display elements within your yard, such as a large tree or a garden. Mood lighting is best suited to outdoor living areas. Other exterior lighting options, like low-voltage lights, can further highlight the beauty of your hardscapes and landscapes after dark.
4. Curb Appeal – Similar to décor, outdoor lighting can enhance the curb appeal of your home. A well-lit home presents a cared for and well-maintained impression for the entire neighborhood. Outdoor lighting can help your home feel like a welcoming retreat for family and friends.
When it comes to outdoor lighting, there really is no downside. Every yard, large or small, can accommodate outdoor lighting. We would love to help you enhance your yard with outdoor lighting solutions, contact us for more information.
