Garden Lighting Benefits
Here are some of the benefits of garden lighting that our team can help bring to your outdoor spaces.
Any improvements you make to your home add value to your property, including your outdoor space. When it comes to increasing your actual property value, outdoor lighting has a proven track record as many homeowners report that outdoor lighting is something they look for in homes they are looking to buy. Increase your curb appeal and highlight key outdoor and architectural features, all while adding to your home’s value.
Shine a light on your landscaping
If you’ve put in the effort and made your landscaping something that you’re proud of, then there’s no reason not to highlight it. When lighting is placed strategically throughout your garden areas, you can bring attention to key features and plantings. You can put lights next to water features, spotlights on major plantings like trees, and lights throughout your garden to show off beautiful blooms in low light. Outdoor lighting can also protect your plantings by creating barriers and deterring people from walking over areas you don’t want to see damaged.
Beyond the aesthetics of outdoor lighting, it also serves as a way to make it safe for family and guests to navigate your outdoor oasis after the sun goes down. Outdoor lighting can illuminate walkways in your garden and entertaining area so that people don’t trip or fall unnecessarily. You’ll want spotlights or post lighting near pools, decks, stairs, or large obstacles. Beyond your yard and garden, you should also consider installing outdoor lighting by all of your high traffic entry points, as well as your driveway.
Lighting adds security
Outdoor lighting is also an additional layer of security for your home and property by deterring crime. Installing floodlights in your yard makes sure any dark areas of your yard are lit, and if they are set up on a motion sensor, they can deter any potential burglars as well. Having timers on your outdoor lights also reduces the chances of trespassing, especially when you are out of your home for extended periods, like a vacation.
