Keep reading to learn about some of the top ways your landscape lighting may benefit your neighbors.
Improve Neighborhood Safety
When your house is well-lit, you are eliminating shadowy areas. This means that there are fewer places for nefarious individuals to hide. This is beneficial for you and your neighbors. After all, if one house is well-illuminated, it means that other houses are going to look less appealing, too. There are obviously people who care about what is going on in the neighborhood, and people will ill intentions want easy targets. If there is a lot of light present, it will increase the likelihood they will get caught.
Improve Your Home’s Curb Appeal and Neighborhood Home Value
This may seem odd, but having a well-lit property can improve your home’s curb appeal. When houses in an area all look great – during the day and at night – it will increase the perceived (and sometimes actual) home value for everyone on the block.
Homebuyers are naturally attracted to areas where the yards look amazing. If your yard looks amazing, then there is a good chance this will spill over to your neighbors and help to increase their home value too. This is considered the concept of value by association. Also, if your neighbors see how great your house looks, they may follow suit and install landscape lighting, too, which will help further increase home values.
Provide Spill Over Light
When you have lit your yard, there’s a good chance some of the light may spill into your neighbors. If the light spills over, it will benefit your neighbors and illuminate their yard, too. This will help keep nefarious people away from their homes, which is going to benefit their family. It will also minimize trips and falls when people are walking across their property.
