Four Fabulous Benefits of Path Lighting for Fall

Front Yard Visibility

Atlanta Outdoor Lighting InstallationDuring the fall season, you may have guests and visitors arriving at your home well after dark. In fact, probably one of the busiest evenings your front porch will experience all year comes with trick-or-treaters on Halloween. Install path lighting with help from the pros to make sure your visitors have clear visibility for each and every step, to keep them safe, and to lower your liability risk. Bonus: you can enjoy a better view of all the creative costumes as they approach.


I realize football season doesn’t necessarily take place outdoors, but we urge you to consider these scenarios. When the Falcons have a prime time game, you may have a few friends coming and going during the game – make that a safe arrival and departure with sidewalk lighting.

If you’re hosting a football viewing party, and the weather is good, as it is often is during the season – host the party on the patio! With path lighting around your patio and landscape, you can host an amazing outdoor football viewing party throughout the majority of the season.

Even if you like to watch Monday night football in peace and quiet, there will inevitably be a forgotten jar of salsa or dinner delivery sometime during the game or at half time. Make sure your sidewalks, driveways, and front entry are well illuminated for safety.

Pumpkins, Cornstalks, and Goblins, Oh My!

Adorning your home with fall seasonal décor has become almost as big as holiday lighting. If you love to add pumpkins, cornstalks, bales of hay, and more to your front porch for fall, you need light! Even those who go for the Halloween theme, the ghosts, goblins, spiderwebs, and monsters deserve to be seen too!
