With darker skies arriving earlier in the day thanks to Daylight Savings Time, which occurs on November 6th this year, National Outdoor Lighting Month is the perfect time to take a look at your own outdoor lighting.
There is no question as to why October has been selected for this campaign, after all, as Daylight Savings Time arrives, so does extended hours of darkness in the evening. This increased darkness helps to drive home how important having outdoor lighting is and the dramatic difference it can make.
In addition to curb appeal, security, and safety benefits, outdoor lighting can help to extend and enhance the enjoyment of your outdoor living spaces. Thanks to the lighting technicians who place your lighting fixtures strategically through your yard, peace of mind is a significant secondary benefit offered by home beatification.
Not All Outdoor Lighting Plans are Created Equal
Believe it or not, the outdoor lighting fixtures purchased at your local home goods store are not the same as the high-quality fixtures provided by professional landscape lighting services.
What does this mean?
It means if you want quality, durability, and longevity, you have to make landscape lighting a priority and be willing to invest in the right materials. While hiring the professionals may cost more up front than buying and installing the lighting yourself, in the long run, it will pay off. When you hire the professionals, they create a unique outdoor lighting scheme based on your yards dimensions, features, and your own personal desires for the space.
Hiring the Professionals Leads to Quality Results
Another benefit of hiring the professionals for your outdoor landscape lighting is they understand the “unseen” aspects of your lighting plan. For example, they can help you choose between wired or wireless fixtures. Also, if you choose wired light fixtures, they work diligently to ensure all cords, wires, and other potentially hazardous elements are out of the way, preventing injuries and other issues to those using the yard.
Perhaps the biggest benefit offered by hiring a professional for landscape lighting is they offer a warranty and/or guarantee for the work done. You don’t have to worry about light in the fixtures going out, wires being damaged, or other issues that may arise. With this peace of mind, you can feel confident your newly lit outdoor space remains looking spectacular for years to come.
