Summer is right around the corner, and that means one thing — plenty of summer fun in the yard with your family and friends. But why should the fun have to end once the sun goes down? With the right landscape lighting, your summer fun can go way into the night, and you can create memories you’ll never forget.
Landscape Lighting Tips for Summer
Have Security Lighting
We’re all about having fun, but you need to make sure you’re safe first. Installing spotlights by all the entrances and exits of your property — your front door, backdoor, gate entrances, driveways, etc. — can help make sure you’re able to see exactly who’s visiting your home and allow for better security.
Light Up Your Walkways
You want your guests to know where they’re going, don’t you? Of course, you do! Use in-ground or hanging path lighting to illuminate walkways and guide your guests to your yard. (Path lighting also reduces the risk of someone bumping into something and getting hurt!)
Prioritize Your Lighting
While it’s great to be able to light up your entire yard, start by adding landscape lighting to the more popular areas first. It’s better to have your patio or deck lit rather than the farther corners of your yard — you can always light those areas later on.
Have Bright Lights for Risky Areas
Do you have a pool? Do you live on the water and have a dock that connects your yard to your boat? These areas can be very dangerous if they’re not properly lit up — especially for younger children or pets. Choose bright spotlighting to illuminate these areas and reduce the risk of injuries or accidents.
Read the Area
Different kinds of lighting are better for different areas. For example, you may want softer ambient light for your patio where guests relax, but bright lights may be better for around your grill where you handle food and potentially sharp knives.
