Top Five Benefits of Residential Landscape Lighting

Your outdoor landscaping goes a long way to increase your home’s curb appeal, and landscape lighting is the finishing touch that brings it all together! While some people overlook this aspect of landscaping, it has many benefits. See how landscape lighting can enhance your home.

  1. Creates a Welcoming Ambiance: When darkness falls, landscape lighting illuminates your home and landscaping. Strategically placed landscape lighting shines a light on the focal pieces of your home, giving it a warm aesthetic that will make it the gem of the neighborhood.
  2. Maximizes Your Time Spent Outdoors: Landscape lighting, particularly lighting installed around decks, patios, and pools, will beckon you outdoors in the evening to make the most of your outdoor space. A well-lit gathering area is great for entertainment, whether you prefer eating an intimate outdoor meal with friends or hosting a neighborhood party.
  3. Increases Personal Safety: Walking around the house at night can be dangerous without proper lighting. Trips and falls can lead to twisted ankles, scraped knees, or even worse. Landscape lighting illuminates steps, surface changes, and pathways so that you and your guests can walk safely at night without getting injured.
  4. Adds Security: While landscape lighting does a lot to welcome people into your home, it is also helpful to keep intruders out. A well-lit home will deter thieves from entering your home as they are more likely to be seen. Outdoor lighting also shows that your home is well-cared for and not likely to have unlocked doors or windows.
  5. Boosts Your Home’s Value: Adding landscape lighting not only benefits you now but can also benefit you when it’s time to sell your house. It helps to showcase your home in the best light and makes it more desirable to potential buyers. In fact, reports show that landscape lighting can increase a property’s value by 15 percent or more!
