When you got involved in the landscape design process of your property, you probably thought about everything from plant varieties to pathways, but did you consider lighting? For a variety of reasons, backyard lighting can be an integral part of any landscape design. Read on to learn what might be worth your consideration.
Pathways around your property should be something you can navigate safely at any time of the day or night. However, without appropriate lighting, they’re not. If you have paths leading around your home, to features, and even around the back of your property, then consider pathway lighting.
Not only does it look beautiful at night, but it provides a clear passageway for safety. What’s more, there are plenty of options available. You can opt for solar LED lights that harness their energy from the sun or 12-volt lights. Consult your local landscaping team to find out what might be the best type for you.
In the 2018 to 2019 period, 231,000 Australians reported having their home broken into. While you won’t always be able to prevent that, having security lighting can undoubtedly act as a deterrent.
