Although the days are getting shorter and the leaves are slowly falling, there’s one way you can brighten up the exterior of your home this fall and winter season – landscape lighting by Memphis Landscape!
Landscape lighting has been growing in popularity for some time. It impacts the safety, security, and appearance of your home. Not only that, homes with landscape lighting display the amenities of your yard while also potentially increasing the overall market value of your property.
1. Improving the appearance of your home and property
Adding professional landscape lighting definitely increases the curb appeal of your home. Soft lighting in a dark outdoor environment can be magical, with a warm, inviting glow. It can create mood, romance, and drama, and interest to any setting.
Show off recent home improvements with effectively-placed lighting! Or, if you’re selling your house and haven’t had much luck, highlighting both the interior and exterior of your property can be attractive to potential buyers.
In fact, a growing number of homeowners are “nightscaping”, a hot trend in outdoor home improvement that capitalizes on this magical lighting. Lighting really can be one of the most important aspects of landscaping, even though it’s often overlooked or underdone.
2. Increased Safety and Functionality
Your walkway serves a purpose at all times of day, even after the sun sets. Landscape lighting can help prevent common accidents that are easily avoidable, like tripping over a poorly lit path. Adequate lighting also provides additional safety for anyone entering the home after dark.
For pool owners, installing lights around your swimming pool is an added safety precaution that’s definitely worth taking.
3. Added Home Security
According to data from a recent FBI Crime Report, a burglary occurs in the United States every 15 seconds. Although a good home security system is generally the first line of defense in preventing home intrusions, landscape lighting can discourage intruders from even approaching your property. Not many burglars want to be identified trespassing on your well-lit property!
