Now is the time when I often come across many of the age-old Christmas songs on the radio. One that is especially poignant for me is the classic Andy Williams tune It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year. This song not only speaks volumes about the enchantment and emotion of the holiday season on a personal level, it is also impresses the fact that winter is the ideal time to consider outdoor lighting.
Anytime may seem like the right time to move ahead with your anticipated Wilmington landscape lighting project, but there are many benefits to installing in the winter months.
- Our service area, which includes Wilmington, Southport and the entire Cape Fear region, experiences temporarily mild winters. This means there are no dangers associated with freeze lines.
- We do experience enough winter weather to enable perennial turf grasses, trees and plants to move naturally into their dormant state. Choosing any type of outdoor improvement that requires excavation around plants, or increased foot traffic on grass is better-suited while they are in their dormant state. This is because it causes less impact on the plant material and they will recover more quickly from any damage.
- Naturally, our backlogs and scheduling demands are greater during the outdoor living season. Demand is greater during the warmer months of the year because folks are spending more time outdoors. Choosing to have us design and install your outdoor lighting during the winter month’s means less turn-around time and your Wilmington outdoor lighting will be there for you to enjoy now, and in the seasons ahead.
- Evening arrives sooner during the winter months, and sticks around longer. Daylight Savings Time (DST) will not begin until March, 12th. That means you’ll be arriving home in the dark for several months still. Why not make the decision now to increase the safety, security and curb appeal of your home and landscape and not wait for Mother Nature to light your way?
