However, create an ambiance for Fall in your own backyard that will leave you friends and family craving their next visit to your home! Keep reading to learn more about how landscape lighting is beneficial for your property year-round!
Pathway and Step Lighting for Safety
Pathway lights are typically found closer to the ground. If you have multiple spaces on your property that you use for entertaining, pathway lighting is ideal for you. Perhaps you don’t have clearly defined pathways and are seeking to utilize outdoor lighting to establish such a path. Pathway lighting is perfect for different types of terrain. Maybe your property becomes slippery or is uneven. This is a great reason to consider using pathway lighting to establish where your guests should travel between spaces and even to highlight any fallen debris that could become a tripping hazard as you navigate the grounds. As your guests travel the pathways of your property, they may arrive to a deck or staircase. Dark stairs are never safe inside or outside. Think about the staircases in your home. You will almost always find a light switch closely that you hit before heading up or down the stairs. While there are certainly differences between lighting indoors and out, this principle remains true outside. You want lighting for your staircases! A professional lighting designer can help you by placing lights along your railings or in the steps themselves.
Providing Curb Appeal and Accenting Your Landscape
Spending time and money on your home comes with the expectation of increased aesthetics. Outdoor lighting will not only make your home safer by preventing falls and deterring potential thieves on your property, it will also increase your curb appeal. Potential home buyers love the way outdoor lighting showcases a home’s best architectural features even as they pass by in the evening hours to check out a newly listed home. Your gardens, decks, columns, patios, and majestic trees can all be used to display the best parts of your home for relaxing and entertaining. Outdoor lighting should not only be used in the front yard or around the entrance. An expert lighting designer can design a lighting system that works together to encompass each area of your property.
