Outdoor Lighting Makes Your Yard Beautiful–and Safe

Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Wednesday, 22 March , 2023

Many San Diego homeowners choose to install outdoor lighting for aesthetic purposes.  They love the way outdoor lighting makes their homes and yards look, and with good reason.  Adding outdoor lighting can elevate your yard and garden from average to incredible with very little effort.  However, there is an even better reason to install outdoor lighting, particularly along walkways and patios:  it increases the safety of your family and everyone who visits your home. 

Slips and Falls–A Real Problem 

Most of us think nothing about slipping, tripping, or falling until it happens.  Then, we may be confronted with a sad reality:  a fall can cause serious injury and ultimately lead to lasting health problems.  Every year, millions of people are treated for falls in emergency rooms around the country.  Some of them will suffer serious injuries such as broken bones and may even require hospitalization.  Most of these accidents were preventable.  

If we take our safety and that of our visitors seriously, outdoor lighting becomes a very easy choice.  Installing outdoor lighting removes most of the hazards of walking in the yard at night and helps prevent falling accidents.  

Crime Prevention 

One of the best and easiest ways to deter burglars or other threats to your home is to install outdoor lighting.  Criminals look for opportunities, so making your house harder to break into ultimately makes you safer.  A home that has bright lighting, well-trimmed shrubbery, and clearly marked pathways is much less inviting to a thief than one that is dark, overgrown, and poorly lit.  By adding outdoor lighting, you are sending a message that your home is well-tended and watched over and that you want to spotlight any areas that might be considered easy entry points. 

Animal Deterrence 

There are some animals that thrive in the dark.  These nocturnal animals, although they may be small and do not look threatening, are often those that cause the most damage to our homes and property.  Opossums, raccoons, and skunks are among the most common creatures that come out at night, but there are others you may not be aware of.  Adding outdoor lighting makes your yard an uncomfortable place for these animals and discourages them from plundering your trash, digging up your plants, or causing other damage to your property.  It also helps you spot any areas where animals may be attracted so that you can take steps to remove anything that might draw them to your home. 

Installing safe, cost-effective outdoor lighting has never been easier.  At Juniper Landscape Company, we work with you to create an outdoor lighting plan that fits your particular needs.  With low-voltage lighting, you can save money on your electric bills and still meet your outdoor needs.  Our lighting systems enhance the look of your property and raise its value as well.  Give us a call today to speak to our professional installers and learn more about how outdoor lighting can improve your yard and garden and increase your family’s safety.

    I must say that Juniper Landscape Company exceeded my expectations, completing the job in a timely fashion and for a fair price which we negotiated ahead of time, and which did not change even though there were difficulties with the terrain around my home in Stonebridge Estates (Scripps Ranch). Juniper Landscape Company was on-time,... Read More

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
