Day Light Savings Time will end this year on November 6th, our skies will get darker earlier and so will your yard. National Outdoor Lighting Month was created to educate homeowners about the difference professionally installed outdoor lighting can make to a home. Installing residential outdoor lighting will not only bathe your home in patterns of light from dusk to dawn but will also provide other benefits.

A well-lit outdoor lighting space enhances architectural detail and accents landscape features, casting your home in the best possible light adding an abundance of curb appeal.

Whether you use your outdoor living space for entertaining, relaxation or both, you don’t want the fun to end when the sun goes down. As you and your lighting professional explore all the different outdoor lighting options you can be assured that your outdoor living can be a ’round-the-clock destination.

Everyone should be able to feel safe and secure in and around their home. An outdoor area that is dark and full of shadows can make many homeowners uncomfortable. Fortunately, there is no need to rely on big garage flood lights for security. You can get the same sense of security from installing LED landscape lighting. Having a well-lit yard will help keep uninvited visitors away, so you feel more safe in your yard and home.

Regardless of whether you are planning to sell your home in the near future or not, increasing its value is desirable for both you and your community. The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) states that outdoor lighting consistently tops their list of most wanted outdoor features in its annual “What Home Buyers Really Want” survey: 41% rate it “essential; 49% say it’s desirable.
