“Of course they will! You’ve seen what it did for our neighbors home,” says Christina.

Matt’s mouth forms a thin line. “I don’t know, I’m not sure of the cost of landscape lighting but I hear it’s kind of expensive. We’d have to get several benefits from them for it to be worth it to me.”

Christina smiles. “Well, then I have just the thing for you! There’s a blog post I found on a local contractor’s website that has 5 benefits of outdoor lighting on it.” She gets her phone out and starts searching for it.

“Aha! The benefits of landscape lighting. Here, take a look,” says Christina, handing her phone to Matt.

The Benefits Of Landscape Lighting

You can use landscape lighting to expand your space, heighten curb appeal, increase your property’s value, highlight the best of your exterior, and increase safety. They can also help deter criminals because you and your neighbors can see your property more easily at night.

1. Expand Your Space

One of the best benefits of landscape lighting is being able to make the most of your outdoor area.

Having an outdoor living space is amazing, except for when you can’t use it. For many, this happens as soon as night falls. It’s too dark outside to do anything without flashlights!

You can wind string lights through your pergola, illuminate your patio with landscape moon lighting, and enjoy making more memories with family and friends.

2. Heighten Curb Appeal

Your home can be a dark shape in the night or a warmly lit and inviting space.

This is especially nice when you come home after a long, hard day. Your home can look like it’s been waiting to comfort you all day. Guests will love coming over too because of how nice it’ll look!

3. Increase Your Property’s Value

One great benefit of outdoor lighting is the monetary increase.

Landscape lighting isn’t cheap, so in that respect, it increases how much you can sell your home for. But, what increases, even more, is the perceived value. Outdoor lighting looks amazing, people love it and want it, which makes your home more attractive.

Plus, you’ll enjoy your home even more!

4. Highlight The Best Of Your Exterior

We all have favorite parts of our home’s exterior.

With landscape lighting, you can see and show them off even at night. Whether it’s a prize rose bush, beautiful statues, or a water feature, lights will bring them to life.

5. Increase Safety

We’re not really talking about deterring criminals here.

While lights make it easier for you and neighbors to see any trespassers, lights also help you and your guests. Path lights brighten the way, driveway lights help people stay off of your grass, front door lights keep guests from standing in the dark, and more!
