When it comes to landscape lighting, a lot of people tend to think of the aesthetic value it brings to a home, and rightfully so – as the right design can illuminate the best features of your home while adding curb appeal.
But landscape lighting does more than just give your home a beautiful glow long after the sun’s gone down, it also provides a range of other benefits including security, safety, comfort and utility. Continue reading below to find out just how beneficial a landscape lighting design can be for you.
Illuminating the unique features of your home is one thing, but when it comes to the security of your home and the safety of your loved ones inside of it, nothing else matters. Fortunately landscape lighting helps to secure your home and deter from incidents like criminal and animal activity.
When installing a landscape lighting design that will help provide additional security to your home, it’s important to consider the location of your lighting design, the type of fixtures to use and the control settings that will benefit you most such as programmable timers and motion sensor technology.
One of the worst feelings is pulling into the driveway late at night and realizing you’ve forgotten to turn your porch light on. With no lighting outside to guide you, you slowly make your way to the door from your driveway, hoping to avoid sidestepping into your garden. Once there, you struggle to find the key you’re looking for. With a landscape lighting design, you no longer need to make that late-night navigation to your doorstep. Instead, programmable time settings and motion sensor technology will keep your driveway, walkway and front entrance illuminated at the exact times you need it the most.
Utility & Comfort
Aside from safety, security and aesthetic value, a landscape lighting design can also go a long way in providing utility and comfort. A beautiful backyard porch or patio is great during the daytime, but if you aren’t able to use it after the sun has set, you are missing out on a valuable living space in your home. This is especially true for smaller homes as an outdoor oasis can open your home up and create additional lounging and entertaining space. What’s more, a landscape lighting design also offers the comfort and relaxation of spending a warm summer evening out under the stars with family and friends.
