As Kansas City landscape lighting installation professionals, we know there are plenty of reasons to light up your landscape for the coming spring and summer months. Sure, decorative gardens, flower beds, an elaborate walkway, an amazing deck or patio, or other landscaping is beautiful – but wouldn’t it be even more beautiful if your gorgeous outdoor spaces were lit up at night? Patio or deck lighting, lighting to bring out your flower/shrub beds and other landscape projects, there are countless reasons to light up the exterior of your home. Here are a few:
Increases curb appeal. Landscape lighting adds to the curb appeal of your home, giving it charm and a well designed look at night. Your Kansas City home will stand apart from your neighbors’ homes!
It’s beautiful. While we already mentioned this, what is more welcoming than driving up to a beautifully lit home at night? Outdoor lighting makes your home more welcoming to your family, and visitors. Driving up to a dark home/landscape isn’t welcoming, and could potentially be unsafe.
Complements your hard work. If you landscaped your lawn yourself, you know there is a lot of work, time, expense, and effort involved. Landscape lighting complements all of your landscaping, especially when designed and located properly. You can highlight particular areas you love, making them the focal point of your outdoor spaces.
Increase your home’s value. In general, Kansas City homes with landscape or outdoor lighting sell for more than homes not equipped with this type of lighting. Not only does lighting add a certain ambiance, it also makes your property safer, as chances your home will be broken in to are decreased. Potential thieves prefer dark homes; those with pathways and side yards that are well lit are not attractive targets.
Makes outdoor spaces more usable. In spring and summer, it isn’t uncommon to have friends or neighbors over for an outdoor barbecue or party. Walkways, a well-lit deck or patio, and overall lighting make it possible for everyone to enjoy the get-together, feel relaxed and safe, and take in beautiful surroundings.
Update the exterior of your home. Perhaps you have given your home a fresh coat of paint, made a few repairs, planted some shrubs, or even built a pergola. What can you do next to further enhance the exterior of your home? Landscape lighting, of course.
