Now you can beef up your home security and the outdoor appearance of your home with landscape lighting.
Landscape lighting is available in many forms, from simple front lawn lamp posts to miniature can lights embedded into shrubby and flower beds, or even solar or LED pathway lights.
The point of landscape lighting is to help illuminate your yard and home so you can monitor the exterior without having the need for large, unattractive security lights.
Landscape lighting also can help you set the right mood for any outdoor occasion, serve as an identifier for people trying to find your home, and provide added curb appeal.
Or, how about using landscape lighting so you can see beyond your windows or front porch in inclement weather, keep an eye on Fido or Socks while they take care of business before bedtime, and to deter your local wildlife from rummaging through your trash for a midnight snack.
Here are a few tips on how to use landscape lighting to its brightest potential:
- Make sure the lighting controls are placed inside your home. That way, there’s no need to venture outdoors at night to shut them off.
- Use CFLs or LED lights to cast a bright, clear light around your yard. Incandescent bulbs burn out quickly and are the easiest to break.
- Factor in the look and style of your home. Tying your lighting scheme into the exterior aesthetics of your home helps to provide a more cohesive, holistic appearance.
