How Outdoor Lighting Improves Your Outdoor Space

Outdoor Lighting Is Easy On The Environment

The lighting solutions we have at Advance Lawn Care are incredibly energy efficient. We use both solar-powered options as well as LED bulbs. This saves you from having a high energy bill! Solar-powered lights get their energy directly from the sun, and many have timers, so you don’t have to remember to turn them on or off. They’ll turn on at dusk and shut off when the sun rises. LED bulbs last about 25,000 hours at least, so you will definitely get your money’s worth. And unlike conventional incandescent bulbs, LEDs do not attract bugs because they do not emit infrared light!

Outdoor Lighting Is More Comfortable

At Advance Lawn Care, we’ve designed and built hundreds of hardscaping features like decks and patios. They’re a lovely way to enhance your yard and how you enjoy your outdoor space. What often ends up happening is the great migration back inside as soon as the sun sets. With our landscape lighting service, you can extend the usage of your deck, patio, or other hardscaping feature. You’ll be able to be more comfortable in your outdoor space and spend more time doing the things you love, like socializing with friends and family, getting lost in a good book, or simply taking in the beauty of the natural world. You worked hard to pay for that outdoor space, and you should be able to make the most of it.

Outdoor Lighting Improves Safety

Areas of high foot traffic such as walkways, sidewalks, or entryways can be unsafe after dark. It’s easy to miss a step, trip, or fall when we can’t see where we’re going. And it’s not only unsafe for those that live there, but visiting friends and family as well. Landscape lighting provides peace of mind. It creates the perfect amount of light to help you find your way without feeling like you have a spotlight on you. If you have a water feature like a pond or inground pool, this is especially important. You wouldn’t want someone to trip and fall in! Landscape lighting can also help you feel more secure in your home. We can strategically place floodlights on entryways and garages or other areas of concern. Bulbs can have fixture housing to shape the light beam so, for instance, it will illuminate the front of your home. These are called bullet lights. They are often used to illuminate certain architectural features like pillars or the corners of your home. While exterior lighting is not a guaranteed crime deterrent, most criminals don’t want to burglarize a house that’s lit up like a Christmas tree. They seek out houses shrouded in the darkness where they can slip in and out undetected.

Outdoor Lighting Looks Nicer

Sure, you could have a few wall lanterns with blueish-white, daylight LED bulbs. It will certainly do the trick of lighting up your yard, but it most definitely will not look as pleasing. You don’t have to be saddled with hanging outdoor lightsgarish white light that mimics the sun. LEDs have come a long way since they were first introduced. We can help you choose lighting solutions that tastefully illuminate your outdoor space without feeling disruptive. This could look like bullet lights for a more precise lighting approach or string lights for a trendier outdoor space. Or maybe you’d like a few carefully placed lanterns in your flower beds to add a gentle glow that encompasses the whole yard. We can install lights that look like a real candle flame or ones that gently twinkle like the stars of the night sky. Basically, if you can dream it, we can make it happen. We hope that we can bring your dream yard to reality. 

Outdoor Lighting Increases Your Home’s Value

Whether you’re planning on staying in your home forever or intend to sell it at some point, curb appeal plays a major role in the price of your home. In fact, it can affect a home’s selling price by as much as 14%. While it’s probably not the deciding factor, it will certainly make potential buyers feel welcomed and safe.
