Outdoor Lighting Tips

by Christina Crow-Dufault 14 March, 2013 10:00

While the bottom half of the country is getting warmer, those of us in the northern states are starting to defrost.  As the spring season approaches, we start to think about projects in and around our homes.  You might refer to yourself as a Weekend Warrior or an avid DIYer.

Whatever you call yourself, the outdoor season is coming and it’s the perfect time to start thinking about your yard! And with all the work you put into your landscaping, why not show it off into the evening hours. Plus, you can add a little more security to your home with entry way spot lights and dusk-to-dawn sensors.

If you haven’t considered Outdoor lighting here are a few things to keep in mind:

Curb Appeal

Add value to you home with a well designed landscape. Show off your water feature, flag pole or shrubs with long-life Halogens or energy efficient LEDs.

Safety & Security

By lighting your front and backyard, you’ll protect yourself and home from an unwanted intruder.  Shop from bright LED flood fixtures, front door motion activated sconces and path lights.

Not sure where to start?

  1. Lighting your Entryway, paths, steps and along your driveway are an easy and simple way to illuminate your yard and home. 
  2. Once you’ve covered the basics, consider lighting bushes and trees for a more dramatic effect. Take your new look a step further with rope lighting around your patio or deck.    
  3. Be careful to not over-light your home and yard.  Selectively choose the areas that need light for safety and security as well as for appearance.  And don’t forget about your neighbors-be sure that your landscape lighting isn’t pointing in their windows at night!
