Appearance

The obvious advantage to landscape lighting is the enhancement to your home’s appearance. The lights make your home and landscaping visible even after dark. When positioned properly, landscape lights make architectural features of the home pop out. Lights pointed at your favourite plants make the most of your landscaping at all times of night and day. Outdoor lights add a sense of drama to your landscaping. The illumination makes your house stand out by boosting the curb appeal at night.


Functionality

Landscape lighting increases the functionality of your outdoor spaces. With proper lighting, you can use your front and backyard long after the sun goes down. Flood lights attached to the house provide a large amount of general light to brighten a patio area or a portion of the yard. Lights attached to deck posts illuminate the area for late-night dining or conversations. For additional lighting around a patio tables, under railings, stone copings, steps, and any other area please contact us or visit our CREATIVE showroom.

Enhance Security and Safety

Illuminating your property after dark can also be an effective way of dissuading unwanted guests from poking around on your property. Lighting systems can help to keep your invited guests safe after dark. Illuminating entrance points, like doors and windows, with lights makes it difficult for a potential burglar to break in unnoticed. When choosing where to place landscape lighting for security, consider the darkest areas of the yard and the places near the home where a burglar could enter. If you have a security camera system be sure to consider the placement of lighting for best visual results of each camera location.

Place lights around the swimming pool, along walkways and near the terrace or patio areas that get frequent traffic so as to reduce the risk of falls or other injuries.
