These benefits go above and beyond simply adding useable light to your homes exterior. Landscape lighting can add to the functionality, safety, and beauty of your home. Furthermore, professional landscape lighting can help your house to stand out from the other homes in your neighborhood. Here are just a few of the many reasons why you should consider landscape lighting for your property.

Security

Adding lighting to your property can help to increase your homes security. Oftentimes, when prospective robbers are scoping out a neighborhood, they will look for the home that seems as if it will be the easiest for them to get in and out of without being spotted by anyone passing by. Thusly, by adding lighting to your property you will make your home more visible at night, which will help to deter criminals.

Safety

Landscape lighting can also help to improve the safety of your property at night. When your property, particularly the pathway leading to your front door, is dark at night, you and any visitors to your home may be at risk of injury due to low visibility. Simply adding pathway accent lighting can help to improve the safety of your walkway. If you use decorative pathway lights, this can also add a visually pleasing aspect to your home’s exterior at night and make it stand out from others on your street.

Beauty

Professionally designed landscape lighting can go beyond simply being functional. This lighting can help to highlight your homes architecture, and it can help to highlight its landscaping at night. Landscape lighting can truly help to add to your homes beauty and curb appeal at night, which will make it stand out in your neighborhood.

Implementing landscape lighting on your property can help to make your yard functional, beautiful, and safe at night. Having this lighting installed can help to transform your outdoor space, and it can alter the way your home looks at night. Contact us to find out more about the benefits of having landscape lighting installed on your property.

BBQ success is usually thought of as the type of sauce used. After all, there is a song written about BBQ.

In the mountains of Tennessee, they like a smoky sauce.

But over there in ole Memphis, a dry rubbed rib is boss.

The folks down in Georgia can't make up their mind,

You can give it to 'em sweet or spicy, and they'll say "that tastes alright."

But, we think BBQ success is in the landscape lighting. Once you have that great sauce that everyone wants to taste, how is it served? Is it served outside with porch lights that give off a little circle of light that attracts bugs? Or can you only serve your BBQ sauce in the daylight because you don't have night lighting?

Whatever the case is, landscape lighting is the key to your great BBQ. Go ahead, create your great sauce, and contact us to make your event a success. We will come to your residence and help you decide where you want guests to enjoy your BBQ. Then we will install subtle lights that help them enjoy your sauce and enjoy the conversation of friends.

We can help you light pathways so friends can walk and enjoy your BBQ sauce, or we can help light up niches with tables so friends can sit. We will help you create a moonlight effect from your trees to add to your gathering of friends. If you have a pool, we can create lighting so people can enjoy a swim after eating.

This summer, create your great BBQ sauce, but don't forget the landscape lighting that will make it a great BBQ time with friends. After all, BBQ'ing is not just for the south. BBQ is a summer American tradition for all to enjoy.

Every homeowner dreams of having their own custom lighting system to display the luxury of their humble abode at night. However, deciding exactly what you want can be challenging. By learning more about how to set up a custom residential landscape lighting system, deciding on the right outdoor landscape for you should be achievable in no time at all.

Consider Indirect Ambient Lighting

Although some may take pride in lighting up their entire property for the entire world to see, an indirect approach focused on the dim lighting of certain areas on your property can often be much for effective and luxurious. According to Freshome, "Outdoor lighting doesn’t have to only be utilitarian.  Wall sconces can provide washes of light against the exterior walls of your home to create ambiance in the evening hours.  Directional sconces pointing upwards or downwards can focus on architectural elements on your home, and draw attention to exterior niches and plantings around your home."

Consider Motion Sensor Lights

Motion sensor lights have a number of advantages. This include security, convenience and energy efficiency. Lights which are motion activated have an automatic shut off time, preventing a waste of electricity. Also, motion activated lights are perfect for an evening stroll around your property to light the path. As a security measure, motion sensor lights are bound to scare any potential thief and also alert you to their presence. Lights which are meant for security purposes are best placed around the perimeter of your home close to entrances.

Consider Solar Lighting

Solar lights are the easiest type of lighting to install because they don't require connecting a cord to them underground. If you live in an area where sunlight is relatively constant throughout the year, solar lights can provide a reliable source of lighting year round.

Almost every homeowner wants to show off their backyard, even if it happens to be at night. One of the best ways to do this is with a low intensity lighting system with a high intensity adjustable option. By learning more about how to implement landscape lighting, showing off your backyard during anytime of the day should be achievable in no time at all.

Balance Beauty With Security and Safety

One reason that people typically install a landscape lighting system is for an enhanced sense of security at night. Focus on illuminating walkways and entrances to your home. According to diynetwork, "Path lights are always a great addition. They make your garden and home inviting to visitors, and they're also very important for safety. There are so many different design options that you can easily find something to match your style. Up-lights are designed to light things from below. You can use this to highlight features such as trees or a stone wall." Program the lights so that they can be activated with a motion sensor or manually turned. Besides, motion sensor lights will be more likely to deter a potential thief and alert to you to potential criminal activity than lights which are constantly turned on.

Consider Solar Lights

Solar lights are a great option because they don't need underground wiring and will automatically recharge themselves with energy from the sun during the day. The only disadvantage is that during the fall and winter these lights may emit less light due to the absence of light to charge them during the day.

The holidays are approaching and you are probably making plans for those holidays lights. You love hearing your neighbors and friends tell you your house is the best in the neighborhood! 

But why just have the best lighting for the holidays? Why not plan your holiday lighting so that it can be year round?

  • Strategically placing lighting in your yard and around your house can enhance your holiday decorations. The great part is, that same lighting will enhance your property year round. The second great part is, once that lighting is installed, you don't have to reinstall it next year for the holidays.
  • Do you put reindeer or a nativity on your lawn? At night, you need subtle lighting to show off the display, angled in just the right way to show off that reindeer and give it dimension in the night.
  • Why not have a display near a tree or bush? Then the subtle lighting is used for the display during the holidays and to light the tree or bush year round.
  • Thinking about hanging some decorations on your house? Let us install some lighting around the house that shows off those decorations during the  holidays, and shows off your house year round.
  • You can even change the color of the bulbs in your landscape lighting so they are part of your holiday lights. Then change them back for the rest of the year.

Sound like a way to start planning your holiday decorations? We would love to help your house be the best-lit in the neighborhood.
