Benefits of Landscape Lighting.
Plants often take centre stage when it comes to landscaping, but exterior lighting adds both aesthetic and functional benefits to your home. Landscape lights come in various sizes and designs such as Spike Lights, Spotlights, Bollard Lights just to name a few. Here are a couple of advantages in having outdoor lighting.
Appearance – The obvious advantage to landscape lighting is the enhancement to your home’s appearance. The lights make your home and landscaping visible even after dark. When positioned properly, landscape lights make architectural features of the home pop out. Lights pointed at your favourite plants make the most of your landscaping at all times of night and day. Outdoor lights add a sense of drama to your landscaping. The illumination makes your house stand out by boosting the curb appeal at night.
Home Security – Lights illuminating your home’s exterior makes the house less of a target for crimes. Illuminating entrance points, like doors and windows, with lights makes it difficult for a potential burglar to break in unnoticed. When choosing where to place landscape lighting for security, consider the darkest areas of the yard and the places near the home where a burglar could enter.
