Everyone loves a home interior that is inviting and well-lit, why not ensure your outdoor spaces have the same attention to detail.  Strategically placed landscape lights can not only help with a home’s security, but can highlight a home’s architectural features and draw attention to landscape features.

Five great places for Outdoor Lighting:

  1. The front entrance. A well-lit front can help guests find their way, help with security and makes a great first impression.  Wall lanterns on each side of the door or under a porch or other overhang, can help guide the way.
  2. The back door. Most home owners use back door lighting for security.  This is a great place for a motion sensing light.  
  3. Outside the garage. This is another great place for a motion sensor.  These fixtures usually have a photocell that turns the lights on at dusk and off at dawn to save energy.
  4. Decks, porches, and patioscan be converted into evening retreats by concealing low-voltage mini-lights under steps, railing or benches.
  5. Steps, paths, and drivewaysshould be illuminated to make sure everyone is able to move about easily and safely after dark.
