Landscape Lighting Adds Value, Beauty & Safety

In my opinion, adding landscape lighting to the exterior of your home gives some of the the biggest bang for your buck, with a low amount of maintenance, than any other home improvement project.

Relatively inexpensive fixtures, such as recessed soffit can lights and low voltage landscape lighting packages can turn your home into one of the most inviting on the block, welcoming guests and keeping intruders at bay.

Lighting up the exterior of your home increases safety, welcomes visitors, enhances the appearance of landscaping and makes it easy to enjoy a beautiful night in the comfort of your porch or patio. Timers activate lights when you’re not home to boost security and provide a pleasant, lighted environment to come home to. Installing exterior lights can be done in a relatively short period of time and with minimum fuss, making for a fulfilling home improvement project. You’ll need to make a few decisions about placement and the types of lighting and fixtures you want to use before you begin installation, so keep the following questions in mind as you shop:

  • What is the primary purpose of the lighting?
  • Where will you place lights? How frequently will they be used?
  • Do you want to add sensors or timers?
  • Which styles best suit the areas where they will be installed?
  • What type of lighting is best suited to the area?

Do-it-yourself kits are available at any home improvement store, or y0u can refer to a professional to put together a complete lighting plan which might include tree lights, pathway lights, up & down lighting and architectural lighting. ┬áCheck with local resources, neighbors, or sites like Angie’s List, for recommendations of quality/licensed contractors to complete your project.
