Why Light Up Your Landscape

If you are like most people, your home is the single biggest investment you will ever make. Your home is your castle and your yard is your private domain. However, for a good part of the year by the time you arrive home from work your house is dark. You can’t see your landscaping and your house fades into the night. More and more people are discovering landscape lighting which allows them to extend the enjoyment of their landscape investment into the evening hours.


Landscape Lighting:

improves curb appeal, highlights trees, shrubs, porches, gables on houses and special architectural features
expands outdoor living spaces, you can light a patio or porch and create different moods like candlelight at night or soft moonlight
creates atmosphere, the right lighting creates a warm and welcoming atmosphere for the exterior of your home and yard and provides ambiance for your entire grounds setting. Properly designed low voltage lights focus on a desired effect rather then just having a series of bright runway lights that look like a landing strip.
dual enjoyment, properly designed exterior lighting can be enjoyed from the inside of your home as well as the outside
increases the safety and security of your home. Nightime visitors can walk safely to your front door. Outdoor entertaining is much safer when guests can see the terrain. Automatically having lights with timers or photocells insures you will never come home to a dark and forboding house. One of the best advantages of an outdoor lighting system is that it is a deterrent to burglars. It provides security without the glare and blinding effects of floodlights.
safer, low voltage lighting uses a 12 volt system which is much safer then the standard 110. There is no danger from damaged fixtures or cables.
economical, low voltage lighting systems are less expensive to install then high voltage systems and cost about 1/3 less to operate.
