It can be intimidating to tackle a new home improvement project when you don’t know where to start with the budget. The best place to start is determining what your main priorities are and what your budget is. Think about where you spend the most time outside of your home or what your main concerns are and then what investment you would be willing to spend to resolve and improve that space for years to come. Don’t forget that your lighting system doesn’t all have to be completed at once and isn’t set in stone. You can always complete the project in phases!
Why Illuminate Your Home?
Why are you lighting your home? This is the next step to consider in a landscape lighting project. Are you worried about safety? Are your outdoor steps treacherous and a major area of concern? Do you stumble along the pathways in your backyard? Do you have a poorly lit swimming pool area? Are you a major dinner entertainer that needs more lighting on the back deck or patio? These are all valid reasons to consider a custom landscape lighting system for your home. They are not exclusive and you may decide you want to tackle one area of the home first with plans to circle back to the next later on.
Hiring a Professional
Communication with your landscape lighting designer is key. Be sure to hire a company that specializes in landscape lighting specifically and not a contractor that does landscape lighting on the side as one of many services. This will ensure you’re hiring a professional that is trained and experienced. They will be able to let you know what to realistically expect out of your budget and provide you with estimated timelines and expectations to help you make the best decision on illuminating your home.
