Top Four Reasons You Need Landscape Lighting

Landscape lighting is the perfect way to highlight your property.  Everyone wants to add curb appeal, but have you thought about how landscape lighting can improve property security, increase your living space, and make your property more valuable?  Landscape lighting is the way to enhance your property and make it the envy of the neighborhood.

Landscape lighting makes your property more desirable for you and less desirable for burglars. When a researcher from the UNC Charlotte Department of Criminal Justice and Criminology studied more than more than 400 incarcerated burglars to discover what motivates or deters them, one of the most commonly mentioned deterrents was a lack of hiding spots available on well-lit properties. One of the most affordable, and most successful forms of home security is proper landscape lighting.

A home can never have enough space to spread out, entertain, and enjoy the great outdoors.  When you light your outdoor spaces you expand not only the usable space on your property, but you extend the amount of time you can enjoy the spaces.  Often here in the Southeast it’s too hot in the summer to use our outdoor spaces during the heat of the day.  A properly lit outdoor space makes it possible to enjoy the cooler temperatures of the summer nights.

Lighting up your property is the ideal way to welcome guests to your property.  Properly designed landscape lighting will highlight the best features of your home.  A mix of uplighting, downlighting, wall washes, well lights, and step and deck lighting will give your property the pop to increase your curb appeal all night long.

Last and certainly not least is the fact that landscape lighting makes your property more desirable to buyers and thus increases your property value.  According to leading real estate professionals an investment in your landscape has an ROI on-par with kitchens and baths.  Landscape enhancements, like adding landscape lighting, can increase overall property values.  This is especially significant considering less money is needed to make a huge impact.
