Creating Perfect Curb Appeal With Your Landscape Lighting

A jaw-dropping yard must have a few different elements. The more obvious ones are a detailed landscape, a visually-appealing setup, and possibly a pool, pond, or garden.

Now, as a homeowner, you know that these things give your yard added beauty and make it the perfect entertainment spot, but to fully showcase all the hard work you put into it, you’ll want to add the right landscape lighting. Not only will it add some highlights to the area, but it can also add safety and keep intruders out.

If you are looking to make your neighbor’s jaws drop with some eye-catching lighting, here are three things to consider:

Light Your Yard for Safety

The most prominent reason to invest in landscape lighting around the yard is to keep intruders out. When your yard is evenly lit, those looking to break in will be more hesitant to do so.

Besides, with the right motion sensors, critters and nightly creatures like raccoons will be scared away quickly, leaving your garbage can and gardens safer. Beyond that, a well-lit yard can lead to fewer slips and falls, too.

Create Areas of Light and Shadows

Use the light to highlight your favorite features. Even if your yard isn’t where you’d fully like it to be, using lights to create specific focal points, you can create shadows and areas of light to bring your yard to life!

Highlight Your Home

Not only can you highlight your yard and landscape, but you can also use it to show off your home’s best architectural features. Accent pillars, rock work, and any other element that will make your home shine above the rest. Positioning the lights just right so they don’t shine through your windows or create unwanted shadows can take practice or the help of a professional.
