Why Landscape Lighting?


Landscaping adds an aesthetic element to both commercial and residential buildings alike. Can you imagine going to one of Georgia’s breathtaking plantations only for them to be surrounded by dirt and no grass, flowers or trees? Historic and modern architecture are greatly complimented by luscious landscaping – that is hard to argue.

Green grass, blossoming spring flowers, plants, gorgeous trees, wooden decks, rockscapes, and backyard waterfalls are all beautiful to look at. They bring peace and calm and they truly add to the beauty of the outdoor environment, but they can only be enjoyed until the sun goes down. Once darkness falls, we can no longer see them, let alone enjoy their splendor. This is where landscape lighting comes in.

Benefits of Landscape Lighting

What do you think are the benefits of landscape lighting? Curb appeal? Added safety and enhanced security? Those are definitely some of the benefits, but it also allows you to see in the dark, it lets you enjoy your yard 24 hours a day, it beautifies your yard in the evening hours, it enhances the aesthetics of your home, it illuminates hazards like steps and low-hanging branches, it also creates a lasting impression for first-time visitors.

But don’t take our word for it. “You've pulled out all the stops to make your house and yard look first-rate. So why let that hard work disappear at nightfall when, with a flick of a switch and some strategically placed landscape lights, you can roll back the darkness and put it all on display? Done right, landscape lighting makes the best of what you've got by highlighting your home's architectural features and drawing attention to prized plantings and trees,” Jim Gorman wrote for This Old House magazine.
