4 Benefits of Investing in Landscape Lighting 

Your home is a huge investment and it should be your pride and joy. Landscape lighting is an excellent way to highlight your yard’s best features and make your home a safer place.

Here are some of the great benefits of investing in landscape lighting: 

 

1. It Will Illuminate Your Outdoor Space 

During the spring and summer, why not extend your living space outside? Your patio can be a great place to entertain guests and spend time with your family. Outdoor lighting can add illumination to these spaces, making them safe and usable. In addition, outdoor lighting can add ambiance to your space.

For example, with a dimmer, you can: 

  • Add brighter lights when the children are playing 
  • Create low and romantic light for outdoor dinners. 

Outdoor lights come in a variety of designs and shapes, which makes it easy to find lights that fit all the features of your home. 

 

2. Less Risk of Theft

One of the most important functions of outdoor lighting is that it adds security to your home and deters crime. For example, floodlights are a great way of brightening up nooks and crannies where potential burglars can hide. Your guests will also feel more comfortable if they can see a clear path to your front door and your porch is well-lit. 

Remember, well-maintained landscaping lighting shows passersby that your home is well cared for, which can deter any theft or trespassing. 

Worried about increased utility bills? Why not use lights with motion sensors, so they only turn on when people are in range. You can also set timers on your outdoor lighting so they only come on as soon as it gets dark outside, or while you’re away from home. 

 

3. Enhances Your Curb Appeal 

Well designed and thought out outdoor lighting will greatly increase your property value, giving you an immediate return on your investment, while allowing you to enjoy some great benefits. 

Did you know that 49% of potential buyers rate outdoor lighting as a desirable quality in a home? By strategically placing lighting throughout your yard, you can highlight great features (such as trees, fountains, and ponds) and other special architectural features that make your home unique. 

 

4. It Lowers Risk of Injury 

Not only will outdoor lighting deter criminals, but it’s also an excellent way to make your home safer for family and friends. By putting lights to illuminate paths, walkways, stairs, and any other uneven areas, you will help prevent any falls or injuries. 

Added bonus: You will also reduce the risk of passersby slipping and falling near your property, suing you for damages. 

Consider adding lighting in high traffic areas such as on your patio, deck, around the pool and any other outdoor seating areas, as this will keep your family safe while you’re enjoying the deck at night.

“​Hey Nigel, just thought I would let you know our electricity averaged around $630/month before the upgrade, compared with the September bill that we just got of only $370 – much better savings than we thought. The condo board members are extremely pleased!”​
