Landscape lighting or outdoor lighting refers to the use of outdoor illumination of private gardens and public landscapes; for the enhancement and purposes of safety, nighttime aesthetics, accessibility, security, recreation and sports, and social and event uses.
There are several benefits to outdoor lighting which include:
A well-lit landscape and yard presents a feeling of security and maintenance. When you keep your outdoor areas illuminated, you present a feeling of care and involvement. When people view your well-lit yard, they often interpret your property as cared-for and well maintained. This can discourage trespassing and theft.
Showcase and highlight specific areas of your landscape with decorative lighting. By installing uplights around your landscape in various spots, you pull the eye to these areas and display them attractively. Landscape lighting is an effective way to display planting areas or flower gardens. Install mood lighting along outdoor buildings to add pleasant splashes of light in your landscape. You can even add low-voltage exterior lights to trees and shrubs outdoors to illuminate planting areas and add beautiful accents to your exterior areas.
A well-lit home presents a cared-for impression to the entire neighborhood. Your house will appear warm and inviting as it sits quietly on your property. In contrast to a dark and drab home, your illuminated home will draw people in and offer a warm refuge for family and friends.
