The return to Standard Time means many of us now leave work to arrive home in the dark. Don’t leave your home, family members and visitors at a disadvantage from the lack of proper outdoor landscape lighting.
Landscape lighting offers a wide variety of benefits you can take advantage of not only during the winter months but also year-round.
What makes landscape lighting worth it?
Landscape lighting can be a valuable asset for your property. It can boost curb appeal, make your outdoors easier to see and overall improve the look of your home. In addition, outdoor lighting design also offers the following benefits:
- Improved safety and security. A well-lit home and property can deter trespassers and burglars. Because the sun is setting earlier, it's easier for porch thieves to make their way up to your house and steal your packages before you get home from work – an unfortunate growing trend. Landscape lighting illuminates chosen points of your home and yard, making it easier for yourself or neighbors to spot anything suspicious going on. In addition, proper lighting can also reduce the risk of family and guests injuring themselves on uneven surfaces or other hazards when traveling into, out of and around your home.
- Increased home value. Landscaping lighting has a great return on investment. Whether dramatic or subtle, the beautiful effects that proper lighting creates can significantly boost your home's curb appeal, which adds value to your home without having to do any major renovation. Professional outdoor lighting designers will be able to highlight your home and landscaping features such as trees and shrubs in the best way possible per your preferences. This includes accentuating any unique architectural details that set your home and property apart.
- Increased energy efficiency. You don't need to worry about landscape lighting kicking up your utility bills. The days of inefficient halogen or incandescent landscape lighting systems are over. Today, landscape lighting companies install and use low voltage LED lighting systems and can also offer upgrades to existing systems as needed. This reduces the cost of energy and lowers service requirements so you can enjoy your landscape lighting design without worrying about costs or maintenance.
Landscaping can increase your home's resale value by up to 14%, and outdoor lighting design can make the value of your landscaping efforts increase even more. A professional company like Bio Green Outdoor Services has the experienced designers, high landscaping lighting system components and skilled technicians you need to take your curb appeal to the next level.
