If there are any drawbacks to having a beautifully landscaped yard, it is that you can only fully appreciate its beauty during the day.
Fortunately, you have options, like landscape design lighting. Even better, not only will the right lighting design let you enjoy your landscape in breathtaking new ways in the evening, but you’ll enjoy lots of other advantages too.
The Benefits of Landscape Design Lighting
The dramatic effects that a landscape lighting system can create are limited only by your imagination. And so too are the benefits you can enjoy.
Like having your house lights on when you’re not home, lighting fixtures throughout your landscape are an excellent way to deter intruders. Thieves are much less likely to choose a home where they may be easily seen, and recorded.
Using your landscape at night, even when just coming home in the evening, is much safer with lighting design features, like driveway lighting and path lighting, to light your way. And, when entertaining at night, your guests, who may not be familiar with “the lay of the land”, will be safer too.
You’re not the only one who enjoys the dramatic beauty that landscape lighting creates. Have you ever driven through a neighbourhood at night and noticed the beauty of a home whose landscape features and architectural elements are highlighted and enhanced with lighting? That’s curb appeal and you get more of it with outdoor lighting.
A Dynamic Landscape
A beautiful landscape is always growing and changing. But, again, that’s something you can really only appreciate during the day. With the right lighting ideas in the backyard, front yard and all around your home, you can create dramatic effects that you can change whenever you want.
Accent lights at different points in the yard; and different lighting options, like tree lighting and illuminating your water features; even different lighting colours; can all help you create a different ambience in your yard every night
