Benefits of Hiring a Landscape Lighting Professional

You invested money in your landscaping and want your home to look it’s best at night. Hiring a landscape lighting professional or company that specializes in outdoor lighting ensures the best possible end result. It takes years of experience to expertly light a home’s exterior in a way that enhances its features and increases curb appeal.

Outdoor lighting professionals serve a purpose for projects big and small. From helping you bring your ideas to life to providing an expert opinion, hiring a professional is a wise and sensible choice. Here are some of the top benefits of hiring a landscape lighting professional for your project:

Save Money

It may seem unusual that hiring a professional to light the exterior of your home would save you money. But, online and big-box retail store products are not the same quality as what you would get working with a professional. More often, DIY’ers end up replacing their lighting with low-quality fixtures. An expert can help you avoid these costly mistakes. Not only will you save money but a professionally lit home boosts curb appeal and increases the value of your home.

Save Time and Headaches

An outdoor lighting designer will give you a professional assessment based on your lighting needs, wants, and desires. They will give you a solid plan of action with options for lighting your home, which can be installed all at once or in phases.

Experienced lighting designers will know all the tiny, little details that may otherwise get overlooked. They’ll know what to install before the cement is poured, hardscapes are formed, or as structures are built, which also saves you money.

Act as a Liaison

A professional landscape lighting designer will work with you and your architect, builder, or contractor. Even in the early stages of your project. They can help you avoid any common mistakes that can impact your overall lighting design.

Availability of Resources

A professional will have access to high-quality products (architectural Specifier Grade fixtures, bulbs, components, etc.) not accessible to the general public. By utilizing these resources, your designer can give your home a more unique and cohesive style.

Wow Factor

A professional lighting designer will know how to give your home the “wow” factor you desire. They know how to see the “big picture” while clients often cannot.
Someone with years of experience will know what works well, and what does not. They’ll know what color temperature and beam spread will enhance your space and create the desired mood. When professionally done, exterior lighting creates ambiance and adds distinction to your home.

Home Value

A professional landscape lighting design can add to the nighttime aesthetics of your home, which, in turn, can increase its value.

Knowledge & Experience

Landscape lighting designers are professionals with years of knowledge and experience understanding the art and science of light. They understand which techniques will work best given the situation and the elements. A professional can help solve all of your lighting needs while adding beauty, distinction, and functionally to your home.
