Upgrading your outdoor lighting can do wonders for the look of your property at night, and may be very appealing come the shorter days and longer nights of the fall and winter. As someone who means to invest in the landscape of your property, from various enhancements to a new hardscape, landscape lighting has probably often crossed your mind. We have all driven through a luxurious neighborhood where each immense house was lighted from the front walkway to the backyard, and admired the look. Industrial properties where the property feels safe – as the parking lot and entries are all well lit, as well as the beautiful flowers. There is no reason the whole world should not be able to view the beauty of your property at all hours, which is why we are going over the benefits of landscape lighting for your property.
Before we discuss the many functional benefits of installing landscape lighting, we must address the great look it gives your landscape. With great design freedom, you can accent walkways, create focal points, and allow for greater views of the landscape you have spent so much time and money to maintain. Downlights can light up your favorite tree, and flood lights can fill up the night, showing off a patio, or maybe the driveway of your home. Additionally, if you choose to put your home on
the market, a prospective buyer will look on in awe of the illuminated landscape. As hot as the market currently is, your property will be even hotter. The same can be said of a prospective tenant for a commercial property, attracting a more prestigious firm, willing to pay more. Whether it be a commercial or residential property, you cannot deny the great look that landscape lighting provides.
Any property that is well-lit is going to be an immediate deterrent for any potential criminals, or criminal activity. Crime deterrence immediately increases the safety of you and your family within your home, as well as for trespassers and vandals on commercial property. A better lit landscape also just prevents falls and accidents, which are never fun with children, and even worse with tenants or visitors where you could be held liable for their injuries. You can feel more comfortable holding events later at night, especially in your backyard or your corporate patio. Overall, lighting makes everyone feel more safe and secure, so why not give the gift to your property.
