Enhancing the exterior of your home with landscape/ fence lighting has many purposes and benefits. You can use it for aesthetics, but it also serves many practical functions as well. Check out the benefits of illuminating the exterior of your home.
Illuminate the Night
When the weather is favorable, many home owners enjoy spending time outside; especially when they’ve enhanced their landscape with more living space. If your patio or deck is all equipped with lounge chairs, places to eat, relax, play games, or just talk, don’t let the sun going down put an end to your fun. Use landscape lighting to extend your time outside. It also allows kids more time to out play outside, especially in the summer when they’re out of school. Lighting is also a great way to enhance the ambiance, and you can design it in a way that helps set the mood for your event.
Highlight Your Landscape
Put your green thumb and beautiful hardscaping on display with landscape lighting. It not only makes your property, in general, look more beautiful, but you can use it to highlight those areas that you are particularly proud of. For example, if you have a water feature, garden, or walkway that leads to your pool, you can highlight those elements with lighting.
Enhance Your Appeal
Enhance the curb appeal and value of your home with landscape lighting. Because it highlights the beauty of your property and makes it more visible at night, your neighbors and potential buyers will be able to see how well you’ve kept up with your landscaping. In fact, the National Association of Home Builders conducted a study that found that 49 percent of buyers rated outdoor lighting as a desirable quality in a home.
Potential burglars and intruders look for easy targets. Homes that don’t have lighting or residential fencing look more unprotected than homes that have those elements in place. Adding lighting to your fencing illuminates the perimeter of your property and allows you to see more of the neighborhood from your home. It keeps unwanted visitors from being able to approach your home without detection.
