Benefits of Outdoor Landscape Lighting


Have you thought about installing outdoor landscape lighting to the front of your home or out in the backyard? Well, there are plenty of reasons why you should. Here are just a few of the benefits outdoor landscape lighting can add to your home.

Home Security

A dark home looks like an easy target for anyone trying to break in as it will be easier for them to stay hidden. If the outside of your home is well lit, then it will be much easier for you or your neighbours to spot someone sneaking around outside, deterring them from attempting anything.

Plus, a well-lit house and yard gives the appearance that somebody is at home, providing another deterrent. With this in mind, we also offer outdoor lights connected to smart timers, so you can make sure your home is lit while you’re out or away on vacation.

Added safety

When you’re walking towards your front door, or out of your back door, at night with low visibility, it can be easy to trip over something and potentially hurt yourself. The same goes for your kids if they’re coming home after visiting their friend’s house, especially during the winter months where it gets darker earlier. By adding outdoor landscape lighting, your path will be well lit, making it safer for people walking there.


As well as all of the practical benefits of adding outdoor landscape lighting to your home, you’ve also got the simple benefit of how great it looks. Outdoor lighting produces a real elegant aesthetic that makes the front of your home or your backyard look really appealing.

Home resale value

Any home improvement project done right can result in an increase in your home value. Adding lights to the outside of your home can make it look more appealing and welcoming, as well as adding some character to the home’s exterior. So, adding outdoor landscape lighting could help improve your likelihood of making a sale and achieving a higher price. Plus, anyone viewing your home will consider the above benefits, especially home security, when considering whether to buy or not.
