Understanding the benefits of landscape lighting can help you determine if adding landscape lighting to your front yard is the right fit for your particular wants and needs. At Jovak Landscape Design, we want to help you create a safe, functional, beautiful outdoor space. That is why we offer a wide range of landscaping services for front yards.
Some of the main benefits of adding landscape lighting to your front yard include:
One of the most obvious advantages of using landscape lighting in the front yard is to help enhance the overall curb appeal of your home. By positioning landscape lighting properly, you can easily make your favourite plants or architectural features stand out, creating an added sense of drama to your front yard landscaping.
Landscape lighting can play a key role in the way you use your outdoor space at night. Properly lighting the front yard with flood lights attached to the house can provide a large amount of light to brighten up the front porch. Consider placing lights on posts or hanging lights from the roof of an outdoor structure for providing additional lighting in dining areas.
Using landscape lighting at the front of the house can help deter criminals, as they will not be able to approach your home easily. Illuminating entrance points can also make it more difficult for burglars to break in unnoticed.
Landscape lighting can also add an extra level of safety by ensuring that all tripping hazards, stairs, and drop offs are lit up. Adding lighting near common hazards can make them more visible to family members and guests, helping to prevent falls or injuries from occurring.
While landscape lighting is often thought of as a functional element, it can also be used for decorative purposes and to enhance the beauty of any space. Consider extending the interior of your home outside by using landscape lighting that complements the light fixtures inside.
