Incredible Benefits of Landscape Lighting & Garden Lights

by | Nov 25, 2019 | Home & Garden

Illuminate Your Outdoor Living Space
The living room does not have to be the only place in your home where you spend quality time with friends and family. Extend your living space outside! Your patio and backyard are perfect places to entertain guests, have meals, and spend time with the kids. Outdoor lighting adds illumination to your outdoor spaces making them usable at night. Outdoor lighting can add the right ambiance to your space whether you are with the family, or having a cup of tea alone before bed. You can even install outdoor lights that come with a dim feature. This will allow you to use brighter light when the kids are outside playing, and low light for romantic evenings with your spouse. Outdoor lights come in a variety of shapes and designs, making it easy to find lights that fit the other features of your home. From decorative to functional, you can’t go wrong with outdoor lighting.
Highlight Your Landscaping Decor
By strategically placing outdoor lighting throughout your yard, you can highlight many of the features you already have. Guide people to your front door over paths and walkways with energy-efficient solar lighting posts. You can also use outdoor lighting to mark property lines, and create barriers to areas of the yard where you don’t want people to walk over. Outdoor lights are also an excellent way to show off special features in your yard. Place lights next to water features like fountains or ponds, or to spotlight trees.
Using lights throughout your flower beds will also show off all the beautiful colors, so that you can even enjoy your garden at night. Outdoor lights can be used overhead on porches, incorporated into railings or posts on staircases, or placed in the ground. Another great option for outdoor lighting is statement lights. Statement lights are great conversation starters due to their unique nature. Consider hanging brightly colored orbs around your porch to create mood lighting, or find lighting that is in theme with the decor of your patio or one of your hobbies. If you have ocean or beach decor on your patio, you can enhance it with these marine and nautical themed lights.
