The Southwest Flordia summer swelter is finally breaking, and we are getting some of those milder temperatures that are the envy of many areas of the country. With nighttime temperatures in the 70s, it’s the perfect time to be in Estero. Though we are now spending more time outdoors than during the summer, you’ve probably already noticed how much more quickly the sun is setting. Days are getting shorter, and nights are already getting longer. With additional hours of darkness, you may be worried about security and safety on your property, and you have every reason to be. Unsavory characters are harder to spot in the dark, and it’s much easier to trip on an out of place tool or toy when your drive is shadowed. But all of these risks can be minimized by simply adding outdoor lighting.
It’s no secret that thieves and vandals avoid properties that are well illuminated and target those that are shadowed. Shadowed homes provide them plenty of places to lurk and not be seen. They can target your home and not be noticed, but outdoor lighting minimizes the shadowy places where those with ill intent can hide, making your property more secure and safer for you and your family, especially you are returning home after dark.
Estero outdoor lighting also reveals dangers that shadows conceal. Maybe someone left a garden hose stretched across the driveway, or a child or grandchild left toys lying on the porch. If you are bringing a guest home, he/she won’t be aware of that particularly high first step to the front door. Without clear visibility, such trip hazards could cause your otherwise pleasant evening to end in an ER visit, but with Estero outdoor lighting, your pathways, driveway, and entryways can be illuminated, allowing you to see hazards before they create problems.
Most of us stopped being afraid of the dark many years ago. We recognize there are no monsters in the closet or underneath the bed, so nighttime isn’t that scary. However, kids do have some valid concerns. Darkness can conceal is the existence of hazards, and because of this, Estero outdoor lighting is an important autumn addition to your home.
