As residents of Folly Beach, SC, you are fortunate to be able to enjoy the outdoors almost every day of the year. As sure as night follows day, there are plenty of nights you aren’t ready to go inside just because the sun has set. This is one of the biggest reasons you need landscape lighting at your Folly Beach home – and especially around your home’s outdoor living areas.
Outdoor Living Is Not the Only Reason to Install Landscape Lighting
Of course, there are several other reasons you need landscape lighting at your Folly Beach, SC, home. We are so focused on outdoor living around here sometimes it’s easy to forget. Let’s look at additional reasons we hear most often when homeowners talk about why they want to have landscape lighting installed.
Nighttime Curb Appeal
Everyone knows a home that’s beautiful on the outside has more curb appeal, but what people forget is that’s only in the daylight. Once the sun sets, your home loses that curb appeal if you have nothing but a poor, little porch light to guide visitors. Landscape lighting brings your property to life and restores curb appeal after dark.
When your home and your yard are illuminated with a warm and welcoming glow, guests feel graciously beckoned inside. The right amount of illumination says, “We’re expecting you!” and, “Come on in! We’re so glad you’re here!”
Pathway lighting is a form of landscape lighting that increases safe passage around your property. Anywhere you have a walkway, path, stepping stones or stairs, you should have enough pathway lighting to ensure people can see where they are walking. Even driveway safety increases with path lighting.
Showing Off Your Yard’s Best Features
Yes, beauty for the sake of beauty is to be enjoyed. If you have exquisite trees, exotic plants or beautiful flowers, let us illuminate them so you and your guests can appreciate their glory. We also recommend illuminating other features of your landscape such as water features, fire features, statues and other forms of outdoor art. Gazebos, pergolas and trellises can be dramatic when gently illuminated.
Folly Beach SC Homeowners are Passionate about Outdoor Living
You love your patio, deck and pool surround. An outdoor kitchen, pergola or fire feature enhances these favorite areas. You can enhance them even more by adding landscape lighting. The landscape lighting Folly Beach SC residents enjoy most will increase the number of hours each day you can truly live in your outdoor living areas.
