Landscape and Outdoor Lighting
When a Summer provides St. Louis with comfortable temperatures, families are able to enjoy more weekends and time off outdoors with family and friends. Unfortunately, many homeowners don’t take advantage of spending more time in their backyards because they don’t have adequate outdoor lighting and moving about the backyard at night is downright hazardous. But when you have adequate outdoor lighting parties and family get-togethers aren’t limited to the inside areas of your home. Here are some of the benefits of outdoor lighting.
When it comes to spending time outside in your backyard at night, safety should be the primary concern. When you light walkways you ensure family and friends can safely navigate these areas in your yard. Zone lighting is one way to ensure safety. Zone lighting illuminates areas of landscaping and your yard for nighttime use. Keep areas like your patio, deck, garden, pool area, outdoor seating areas, driveways, garages, sidewalks and entryways safe after dark by hiring an Exceptional Electric electrician to install outdoor lighting.
Another benefit of outdoor lighting is security. When your yard and landscaping is well-lit you and your guests have a feeling of security. Your yard looks and feels well maintained. A well maintained yard and landscaping shows you care about your property and is a deterrent for trespassers and possible theft. Motion detectors are ideal, splashing a dark yard with bright light when someone walks through. Would be criminals don’t want to be under the spotlight. Motion detectors are helpful when it comes to keeping you and your family safe.
Outdoor lighting also provides your family and friends with comfort in your home’s outdoor landscape. Comfortable and attractive lighting enables you to use your deck or patio after dark. Outdoor lighting adds ambiance, making outdoor areas pleasant and inviting, especially when such lighting adds to your outdoor décor. You can illuminate seating areas on your deck or patio effectively using a combination of uplights and lights installed on outdoor structures.
Decorative outdoor lighting can showcase and highlight specific landscaping and areas of your yard. When an Exceptional Electric electrician installs uplights in various spots around your landscaping, it displays these areas more attractively, literally drawing the eye to these areas. It’s a great way to highlight planting areas and flower gardens at night. When you install mood lighting you can add splashes of light to your landscaping. With low-voltage exterior lights on trees and shrubs, outdoor lighting is the best way to showcase your yard’s beautiful accents.
With the right outdoor lighting, you’ll have a well-lit home and create an impression to the whole neighborhood. Appearing warm and inviting, your illuminated home will have curb appeal and offer a peaceful refuge for family and friends.
Outdoor lighting offers safety, security and a warm and inviting outdoor environment that enhances the beauty of your home. A powerful deterrent against trespassers and potential theft, outdoor lighting takes your home from dark and drab to bright and welcoming.
