There has been no shortage of home improvement projects in the last year. With Americans staying home more than ever before, they’ve realized just how important it is to be comfortable in your own space. Should you make upgrades to your patio, the pool, your living room, or your landscape? The options are endless. We have three reasons that you should consider hiring a professional company to handle landscape lighting as your next home improvement project.
Securing Your Home and Property
Landscape lighting serves as an additional barrier to safety and security for your property. There are two concerns that may come to mind when you think about the evening and your home in the dark. First, you may worry about your loved ones tripping or falling while navigating the grounds or even just trying to make it to your front or back doorstep. Next, your concerns may lie within those who should not be on your property lingering when it seems dark. This is especially true for those who own a second home where they may be gone for weeks or months at a time.
Landscape lighting is strategically designed and placed in areas that hazards are most likely to occur. A professional lighting designer will give you options to illuminate your pathways, your deck, stairs, and other places that could cause accidents due to debris or winding and uneven ground. Stopping a fall is impossible by lighting does a great job at prevention by increased visibility. Your lighting designer will also make recommendations to illuminate the perimeter of your home in addition to garages, carports, front, and back doors. It’s important not to focus all the light only on the front door. Illuminating the perimeter deters thieves and trespassers from setting foot on your property in the first place.
Creating a Safe and Beautiful Space to Entertain
It’s no secret that COVID-19 has swept our nation in the last year, changing the way that many choose to gather. As restrictions begin to loosen, the reality is that some people may prefer to still gather outdoors or in smaller numbers for awhile.
Adding landscape lighting to your home provides visibility and sets the mood for a quaint dinner on the patio or an evening swim with friends. String lights, deck lights, garden lights, tree lights, and more can all be utilized to transform your property into your own personal outdoor oasis. No need to leave your own backyard for beautiful and safe memories to be made!
Improving Your Home’s Curb Appeal When Selling
If you are one of many Americans taking advantage of the hot real estate market right now, adding landscape lighting is a great feature to consider to help your home stand out against other listings. Buyers love to drive by new listings in the evenings on their way home from work to check out the initial curb appeal. This is where the first impression with the customer is made! Outdoor lighting will show off features of your home that may have never even appreciated and will help you and the new buyer fall in love with the home all over again!
