Adding to Your Home’s Appeal With Outdoor Lighting

Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Wednesday, 12 October , 2022

Outdoor landscape lighting does more than simply light up your paths and walkways on a dark evening.  It also adds curb appeal to your home, making it a feature of your neighborhood and ultimately raising the amount of money others may be willing to pay if you decide to sell.  Your home’s curb appeal, or the factors that make the house attractive from the outside, is an important factor in determining the selling price, so adding outdoor lighting is not only an investment in safety but also in the value of your home.

What Does Outdoor Lighting Do For My Home?

Outdoor lighting provides several benefits for you and your family, including:

  • One of the biggest reasons people install outdoor lighting is because they want to keep their families and visitors to their homes safe.  Outdoor lighting can be installed near walkways, steps, and other areas that could be trip or fall hazards at night.  Lights can also be focused on the home to discourage burglary, particularly in areas that are normally dark and shadowy.  By adding outdoor lighting, you immediately increase your family’s safety and comfort.
  • Outdoor lights can be one of your most beautiful outdoor features.  With the right type of lights and the right color filters, your house can be instantly transformed from boring to stunning.  Further, some color filters are better than others for certain types of plants.  With these lights, you may increase the time your plants receive helpful light and improve their growth period.
  • Improved value. Just as other types of renovations can add value to your home, installing outdoor lighting can also increase your house’s selling price.  Many buyers are attracted by the idea of having a beautifully landscaped and lighted yard, making your home easier to sell if the time ever comes.  Considering outdoor lighting as a renovation and an investment helps many homeowners understand how important adding it can be.

You can choose from several methods of lighting such as solar, electric or low-voltage electric.  A landscape designer can help explain which type is best for your particular situation and help you decide where lights can best be placed strategically to give the maximum amount of illumination for your yard.

Juniper Landscape Company was on-time,... Read More

    I have a side strip of yard which is on the street. The original landscaping was VERY high maintenance and not attractive. I was always out there cleaning up the leaf litter or be fined by the HOA. I hired Juniper Landscape Company. They came out and actually listened to what I wanted. They... Read More

    Juniper Landscape Company has been fantastic. Before them, we ran through three or four other lawn and landscape maintenance companies who did spotty and sometimes outright poor work, were not always reliable and who ended up creating problems for us in a variety of ways. That experience led us to subscribe to Angie's List... Read More
