Landscape Lighting Adds Beauty and Safety to Your Home
As homeowners, we put a lot of time and energy into our home. But the beautiful landscaping, trees, pathways, and architectural details of your home all fade into the dark when the sun sets. That is, unless they are illuminated effectively! Shorb can help by designing and installing strategically placed exterior lighting solutions for your home.
Exterior lighting can enhance the nighttime drama and beauty of your home by highlighting its distinct features while also increasing safety, security, and transforming the visual impact of your outdoor living spaces.
Enhanced Beauty & Curb Appeal
The most common reason homeowners invest in outdoor lighting is for its aesthetic beauty. When professionally installed, light can increase a home’s evening curb appeal. Perhaps you have noticed when you drive through a neighborhood at night. Without light, you cannot see a home’s features or landscaping. It gets lost in the dark. While perfectly illuminated homes stand out, you may notice how the lighting elegantly enhances architectural and landscaping features.
Lighting the exterior of your home is the number one thing you can do to increase its security and discourage unwelcome intruders. Security lighting doesn’t need to be harsh or startling to be effective.
Increase Home Security
Most homeowners initially invest in outdoor lighting because they are drawn to the beauty it brings. Not long after, they realize the security element that comes with a properly installed system. Lighting the exterior of your home is the number one thing you can do to increase its security and discourage unwelcome intruders.
Increase Home Safety
If you entertain or spend time outside after dark, then lighting your walkways, paths, steps, and stairs will decrease the chance you, a family member, or a guest will trip or fall.
Extend Use of Outdoor Living Spaces
Many homeowners have a enjoy spending time on their deck or patio, grilling outdoors, or late night swims in their pool. If you want to extend the use of your outdoor living space after the sun has set, outdoor lighting is essential for continued enjoyment. You’ll use your outdoor areas more often, and you can relax in the safety of seeing what you are doing.
Provides Year-Round Enjoyment
As the seasons change, the lighting element remains constant, bringing different illumination effects with each season. How the light shines up onto the fresh snowfall on the evergreens during the winter is a different experience from when everything is just blooming in the spring.
Ease of Use
A professionally installed system can be set up to turn on and off automatically, so you don’t have to worry about it. Also, most dedicated landscape lighting companies have a service team or offer ongoing service programs to ensure your system continues to perform year after year, making it easy for you, the homeowner.
