As a Murrells Inlet home builder we know the pride of ownership you feel in your new custom built home. Once you have spent the time and money to have your property landscaped you should be able to enjoy the beauty of it both during the day and at night. Using the right type and amount of outdoor lighting can help highlight particular features of your home and yard at night in a stunning way.
The landscaping will look different at night when illuminated giving your home twice as much visual appeal. You’ll be able to appreciate your efforts in a whole new way at night. Additionally, some types of outdoor lighting can help add a layer of protection and safety to your home.
When chosen and installed properly landscape lights should reveal your home’s beauty, accentuate your favorite trees and flowers, highlight special features like a waterfall or pond and provide a relaxing environment for you to enjoy.
To get the best effect it is important to follow a few basic guidelines. First use a mixture of lighting types not all the same type and be creative. While solar path or garden lights can be attractive, some light sources should be concealed like those used for down lighting or up lighting. Consider using a timer for any that aren’t solar powered so they automatically turn on at night.
From a functional perspective landscape lights should increase safety and reduce accidents through increased visibility, provide security by deterring potential criminals or unwanted visitors, and they should help improve the property value of your home.
