The benefits of outdoor lighting are numerous, and several of them will move landscape lighting from your “wish list” up to your “must-haves.” Below are 10 reasons why you won’t want to delay professionally installing or updating your outdoor lights.
- Scare Criminals
It’s easier to sneak around your property when the lights are off. Lights placed in strategic places make your home less tempting for burglars who don’t want to be seen.
- Reduce Liabilities
Opportunists can be quick with a lawsuit should they trip and fall on your property because they couldn’t see the way. Like salting your sidewalk, pathway and driveway lighting reduce liability risks.
- Increase Visibility
Outdoor lighting illuminates the faces of intruders so their face and clothing can be identified by law enforcement if needed.
- Strengthen Neighborhood Watch
Dogs barking and landscape lights turning on at night can prompt your neighbors to look out the window and notify police if they notice suspicious activity on your property.
- Fool Others
Macaulay Caulkin still fools thieves by turning on indoor lights, and you can do the same with automatic outdoor lighting timers.
- Bring Out the Sublime
Lights shining on your house and property can greet you with an inspiring view as you drive up to your home in the evenings.
- Entice You Outside
Who wants to be outside in the dark? Proper lighting lets you unwind on your deck and enjoy the view of your gardens, either alone or with good company.
- Focus the Eyes
Uplighting can highlight your prized plants, shrubs, and trees, so they never again fade into the night.
- Set the Scene
Festive string lighting or subdued ambient lighting on your deck or patio will tantalizingly invite you and your visitors to enjoy your outdoor living space. And you don’t have to choose between the two types of light. You can have both!
- Liven Your Home
Your home’s outdoor splendor doesn’t have to disappear into oblivion with the setting sun. Properly placed outdoor lights can keep your home’s facade alive.
