Here in Massachusetts, we can hardly remember the last time we saw the ground. We’re pretty sure it’s still there, buried somewhere under a few fathoms of snow pack, but really it’s anybody’s guess at this point. If not for the warm guiding light of our landscape lamps, we might have lost the car in a drift by now.
Installing landscape lighting on your property isn’t just an easy, cost effective way to boost your home’s curb appeal – It’s also a sound practical decision. Here’s why.
Even when it’s buried under a few feet of snow, landscape lighting will add a warm, cozy ambiance to your home’s lawn. By placing landscape lights around the perimeter of your property, you can even create the illusion of having a larger yard. You can also make accent pieces such as pergolas, plantings, and patios stand out by illuminating them with light fixtures.
A well-lit home is a powerful deterrent to would-be intruders. By illuminating the area around your home after dark, you can significantly reduce your chances of becoming the victim of a home invasion.
Going away on vacation? Set your landscape lights on a timer so that it appears your house is occupied while you’re away. This way, neighbors will be able to keep an eye on your place at night, while aspiring intruders will be more inclined to keep their distance.
Front lawns tend to have their fair share of trip hazards. Plant containers, garden hoses, pathway edges, and grade changes all stand to knock us off our feet and onto our backs. These hazards can be especially dangerous if you have a child or elderly family member at home. By illuminating the area around your home with landscape lighting, you can avoid these unfortunate – and potentially dangerous – mishaps.
With spring just around the corner, there’s no better time to start thinking about sprucing up your lawn. Give us a call today for a consultation!
