Three Reasons To Use Outdoor Lighting

Outdoor lighting can provide many benefits to your landscape.

Are you looking for a functional way to add beauty and value to your home or commercial building in 2019? If so, outdoor lighting may be just the update you need. This functional update can help improve your setting for several reasons. However, it’s important to consider the aim for your outdoor lighting. Depending on what you want out of your lighting they type and styles you choose may vary.


Adding lighting to your home and property can help increase your safety substantially. Most crime is enacted out of opportunity if a site is well lit it is often deemed to be less appealing by criminals. Additionally, security lighting can help visitors to feel safe and comfortable getting too and from their vehicles after dark. If you’ve ever dropped something getting out of the car late at night, you’ll know just how frustrating poor lighting can be. Even at home, security lighting can be highly useful when used in the driveway for this very reason.


When done well, outdoor lighting can be stunning. Not only can it help to showcase your home, but it can bring a new element to your landscaping as well. If you have a highly landscaped yard, lighting can help make it more noticeable at night allowing you to enjoy it for more of the day. When it comes to beautiful lighting, the approach you will take is far different than what you will use for security or task lighting. It will ultimately be less bright and significantly less focused.

Task Safety

One of the most common types of outdoor lighting is task lighting. Used for decks, pathways, and in outdoor kitchens – task lighting is used to help make doing things at night easier and safer. This is particularly important for those who wish to spend quality time outdoors at night. Task lighting also uses elements of both other styles. Along with using dimmer lighting to help create visibility while keeping a mood, task lights must be bright enough to allow full view and prevent tripping and other accidents.
