3 Ways Outdoor Landscape Lighting Can Improve Your Home

Landscape lighting can completely transform your home’s exterior without breaking ground or your wallet. When done correctly, it can help homeowners with several common goals. Lighting can increase your safety, improve your home’s aesthetics, and even provide a nice return on investment. 

Landscape Lighting

Safety & Security

Safety and security are the most important reasons to consider landscape lighting. Well-lit pathways and entryways deter criminals because they are more likely to be seen and apprehended. Some insurance carriers will even provide discounts for specific outdoor lighting due to the decrease in risk.  

Improve Curb Appeal

Strategically placed landscape lighting can give your property a considerable facelift. Well-lit entryways make a home feel more inviting. While highlighting architectural details, like arches and landscaping, with spotlights creates visual interest points that can add a great deal to your home’s curb appeal.  

Increase Property Value

Beautiful landscaping is great, but you need proper lighting to maximize its value. The National Association of Home Builders reports that 41% of home buyers consider landscape lighting an essential feature in their house hunt. Additionally, NAR reports that homeowners see an average of 50% ROI from their landscape lighting projects.  

However, we do not recommend waiting until you put your home on the market to install outdoor lighting. Enjoy it now, and then enjoy the return on investment later.  Contact Land Design Network today if you would like a professional design and installation quote.
