If you’ve considered installing outdoor lighting but just haven’t gotten around to it, you’re really limiting your yard’s potential and cheating yourself out of an exciting decorating opportunity.
Besides serving all kinds of practical purposes, landscape lighting can be fun, stylish, and tasteful. If you need a little additional convincing, here are some of the top reasons that people install landscape lighting.
Your entertaining space will expand.
Few people will turn down ways to make their homes seem larger when they are throwing a party or hosting any kind of event.
Even if you already have a spacious home with plenty of room for entertaining, giving guests the run of the outdoors gives them a more varied and interesting experience.
Besides, during the summer especially, many people prefer spending time outdoors breathing in the fresh air, gazing at the sky, and just taking in the natural environment.
The soft but welcoming glow of landscape lighting makes your yard more inviting and accessible, without ruining the ambiance.
You can show off your beautiful yard.
Many homeowners spend hours laboring to create an attractive yard, or they pay an appreciable amount for someone else’s help and expertise.
Either way, you’ve invested in your yard, and leaving it invisible and forgotten half the time is simply a waste. Gentle ground lights can reveal paths and bushes, while focused spotlights or the dispersed light of hanging lanterns can focus attention on prominent features like trees or sculptures.
Your overall lighting arrangement will let your guests see all the time and thought you’ve put into decorating, organizing, and maintenance.
You and your guests will be safer.
Providing outdoor illumination also has practical benefits. First, it can deter intruders from entering your yard – even softer lighting can ruin a hiding place or reveal someone’s approach.
Second, landscape lighting makes it easier for you and your guests to move around safely. Whether you have terracing, a fountain, or low-lying decorations that are easy to stumble over, providing your guests with enough lighting to navigate your yard is essential.
You have plenty of creative freedom
No two yards are alike, so even if you don’t think of yourself as a creative person, you can be confident that your outdoor lighting will be unique and impress your guests.
For more artistic and inventive people, there are a multitude of possibilities for using lighting to transform a yard by night. Even in more restrictive and uniform neighborhoods, most yard lighting options are fair game, as long as you avoid bold and garish lighting that irritates the neighbors.
These are just a few of the many reasons that landscape lighting has become so popular among homeowners in Atlanta.
