Enhance the Safety and Aesthetic Appeal of Your Yard with Landscape Lighting

Your home’s backyard is as essential as the home itself. The odds are high you’ve put quite a bit of work to make the outdoor space look good.

But with landscape lighting, you can create an even more stunning and safe yard that you can enjoy both day and night. Here are a few innovative landscape lighting solutions you can borrow.

Light the Pathways

Lighting your landscape should begin with the paths. Well-lit paths are welcoming since they improve the appearance, provide the illumination necessary for visitors and also guarantees their safety. For the paths, the secret is in getting a few low-watt bulbs as high illumination might cause glare. Line the lamps on either side of the path leading to the doorway.

Illuminate the Entries

Get some light bulbs for the front, back, side doors. In this case, your electrical contractor can either place them on the sides or overhead.

Light the Steps

In the night, you can barely see anything. And when it comes to the steps, missing one would mean injuring yourself. So light the treads or raisers to enhance safety.

Driveway Lighting

Your driveway is a crucial part of your home and deserves lighting. Driveway lighting makes the entrance to your home safe and more attractive. Consider some low-voltage landscape lighting for the entire stretch to prevent glare.

Highlight Any Architectural Features

Use overhead lights to draw key attention to the focal points on your yard such as fountains, graceful columns. The lighting will not only make them more striking but will also enhance the aesthetic appearance of your yard when the sun goes down.
