You have your lawn in and your flowerbeds planted. Now is the perfect time to install landscape lighting. Here at Buckingham Electric Inc., we feel that a yard is not complete until there is landscape lighting. Below are some of the top benefits of installing landscape lighting.
- Curb appeal – Landscape lighting increases curb appeal and property value. It also allows you to highlight key features of your home and landscaping.
- Highlight your landscaping – Strategically placing landscape lighting will illuminate the best features of your property. You can easily guide visitors to your front door, keep people from venturing where you don’t want them to, and mark property lines.
- Light up your outdoor living – Landscape lighting is also ideal for your outdoor living areas. With outdoor lighting you can use your outdoor living space any time of the day. We can install dimming lights, different colors, and lighting that matches your home’s style.
- Crime deterrent – Criminals do not like to be seen. They prefer to lurk in the shadows and prey on homes that are not well lit. You are adding a layer of protection from crime by installing landscape lighting. If you are concerned about the possible added electrical cost, then we recommend installing motion sensor lighting or lighting that can be set to a timer.
- Safety – Landscape lighting helps keep your family and visitors safe. Lighting will illuminate safe paths for walking as well as any uneven surfaces. We recommend adding lighting to stairs, patios, around pools, walkways and any place that is uneven.
There are many benefits to landscape lighting in addition to highlighting your landscaping. Here at Buckingham Electric Inc., we highly recommend installing landscape lighting around your home.
