So maybe your home’s landscaping is awesome. The neighbors are envious, you smile as you pull into your driveway after work, and family loves to hang out on the back patio.
Chances are, however, that you don’t get the same enjoyment out of your landscape in the evening hours. Why not? Because you can’t SEE it. Most homes in Pittsburgh, Allegheny, Westmoreland and surrounding counties lack sufficient outdoor lighting for both beauty and safety.
I’m not a security professional, so I won’t spend a lot of time detailing the Safety aspects. However, it is proven that the more light that shines on and around a home at night , the less likely you are to experience unwelcome intruders. In this case, nighttime beauty equates to additional SAFETY. How cool is that?
Think about the ways you use your landscape and hardscapes during the day – Strolling through the gardens, cooking on the grill with friends, lounging by the pool or water feature – It’s easy, because you can see everything. A well-designed lighting system will shine a pleasing view on the entire home and landscape, in a way that accentuates the ambience of the evening hours. So this doesn’t mean enormous floodlights that blind your friends and family, but instead it is a perfect mix of path lights, accent lighting, overhead and underfoot lighting. For instance, several tight floodlights pointing straight up are a great way to showcase the sides of your home (tight enough that it produces a “tunnel” of light that avoids direct illumination of bedroom windows). And
small spotlights are perfect for displaying specimen plants and small trees in the landscape.
Landscape lighting can be a DIY project, but if you’re not sure about the various types of fixtures and electrical requirements you might want to hire a professional. We would be happy to assist in the design and installation of your outdoor lighting in the Pittsburgh, Greensburg, and Ligonier PA areas.
