Lighting sets the mood for the inside of your home, but it also sets the mood for the outside of your home. The brightness, tone and type of lights affect how your yard looks. Where you place lights matter too. Let’s take a look at how light impacts your yard and life.
When people think of landscaping, they seldom think about lighting. Lighting is important at night, but the way it displays your landscaping is just as important. You might want spotlights on a few trees or bright light in an area you usually park when you get home. Outdoor post light fixtures add a nice touch. You can use these along your driveway, by your front door or elsewhere.
Adequate lighting in a yard can help to deter theft. If thieves believe they can’t get away with breaking into your home, they won’t. Strategically placed sources of light prevent theft because they make all of yard visible. Notably, you want light along your driveway where you enter and exit your vehicle, along the walkway, your door and close to any bushes or trees you have along the exterior of your home.
With the right lighting, you can entertain guests outside. Think of a string of light you can suspend over or under a canopy or gazebo. You can make an outdoor deck and have a variety of spotlights, strings of lights strung across the sides of the deck or place outdoor post light fixtures around your deck.
It’s a good time to set up the lighting in your back and front yard. Contact Lamp Post Globes at www.Lamppostglobes.com to view a selection of lighting fixtures for your yard.
