4 Key Benefits to a Well-Lit Yard

Terry Brady

Safety and security are obvious benefits to having a well-lit yard. But there are some other benefits that are not so obvious. Outdoor lighting can offer some great aesthetics for enhancing the look of your home and your landscaping at night. Here are some key benefits to a well-lit yard:

Path Lighting:

Create a welcoming atmosphere at your home for guests with nighttime path lighting. An added benefit to path lights is that it keeps guests from wandering into your yard or flower beds if they're not quite sure where the path is after dark!

Expanded Living Space:

Landscape lighting can be used to extend your living space after dark, especially if your family enjoys outdoor barbecues or other activities that extend into the evenings. Light up the outdoor space to make your yard the perfect spot for outdoor dinner parties and other fun activities.

Boundary Lighting:

Most homes have fencing, shrubbery or some other property marker for boundaries. Lighting can be overlapped to create a continuous wall of light around your property to showcase it, while at the same time expanding that nighttime activity area.

Highlight Features:

Sculptures, fountains or other luxury landscaping features can be enhanced with directional lights. Showcase these objects with directional lighting. If you have a fountain, underwater lights can be a great way to show these off.

These are just a few of the added benefits of having a well-lit yard. If you want to explore some area lighting options for your home but don't know where to start, contact Irrigation Outlet!
