Outdoor Lighting – 5 Ways it Can Benefit Your Landscape Design

Professional Residential outdoor Lighting in Atlanta

While landscaping designs are important, and allow you to be sure to get all the elements you want in your yard, there is a crucial aspect of landscape design you don’t want to overlook – that of outdoor lighting. Sure, having the right plants, water feature(s), deck, and other elements needs to be included, but without lighting, those much desired features will not be noticed after the sun goes down.

5 Advantages of Outdoor Lighting

If you have never considered outdoor lighting to be a needed part of your landscape design, then now is the time to incorporate them – be it to an existing landscape or brand-new design. Here are some reasons why so many design teams and homeowners are choosing to make outdoor lighting an integral part of crafting the perfect outdoor landscape.

1.     Appearance – Having outdoor light adds a finished look to your yard. With the variety of lighting options available, it is possible to spotlight special features, brighten up dark areas, and set your home apart from others in your neighborhood.

2.     Function – Let’s face it, dark areas- whether inside or out- mean a greater chance of someone tripping over an item in the path. But beyond the extra visibility for walking outside after dark, having outdoor lighting means those great lawn parties don’t have to end just because the sun went down. Whether it is string lights along a deck, low lights in the shrubbery, lights designed for the patio table or spotlights around the pool there are many ways lights can be incorporated that offer function and more time for fun.

3.     Security – Lights and home security go hand in hand. When criminals cannot approach your home without being in the lights, you lower your risk of being a crime statistic. (It should be noted that many insurance companies offer a discount for adding exterior lighting.)

4.     Staging – There are dozens of light choices available, and when installed by professional outdoor lighting experts, these lights can be incorporated to set the stage for nearly any event – weddings, garden parties – you name it. You may even choose to incorporate extra color such as using red lights to show off a Japanese Maple, yellow lights hidden near the shrubbery of a fire pit or patio area, or even tracers along the edge of a deck to make it feel like a performance area.

5.     Value – Adding outdoor lighting can add more curb appeal to your home – in some cases getting as much as 28% more in the resale value. After all, a well-lit home is more attractive than one that is dark and hidden.

Outdoor lighting not only sheds light on your landscape but serves practical purposes such as accident prevention, minimizes risk of break in, and making it possible to enjoy outdoor entertaining after the sun has gone down.

  • “We contacted a number of landscapers before we found Outdoor Makeover. Navid and Omid worked hard on improving our front and backyard. They worked quickly and diligently and now we have a beautiful lawn and outdoor entertainment area. Their customer service was excellent. They called or emailed us a number of times just to make sure everything was right and we were satisfied. Great Job - Great Customer Service - Great People!”

    Patrice & David Alpharetta, GA

  • “Last June, my wife and I contacted Outdoor Makeover regarding replacing the “weeds” in our front lawn with sod, replacement of all shrubs in the front and back yards and the planting several new trees throughout our property. Once we confirmed the design plan, the Outdoor Makeover crew got started immediately. The job soon took on a life of its own and Navid and his crew were ready and willing to be flexible and get the job done. It is a pleasure to work with a professional that understands the meaning of good communication and customer service. The project came out perfect and we are very happy with our new lawn, shrubs and trees. We look forward to a mutually beneficial, long-term relationship with Outdoor Makeover.”

    Amy & Joe Roswell, GA

  • “While we had a general idea of some things we wanted done, Navid was able to envision a work product beyond that which we could have imagined. In addition to being very accessible, Navid was very customer focused and was intent throughout the project of ensuring that our expectations were met. We were amazed at his team’s ability to execute so quickly from “design” to final product. Expectations were more than exceeded, and we would certainly use Navid and Outdoor Makeover on future projects.”

    Larry S. Atlanta, GA

  • “Navid and the Outdoor Makeover team are top notch. They found solutions within our price range and help us accomplish our most important priorities. Further, even after we paid them in full and needed them to come back to touch up some items, they came back within 1 week. This is UNHEARD of these days! I would highly recommend them to everyone!”

    Ryan E. Marietta, GA

  • “Navid and his team have exceptional vision and incredible talent for design.
    Outdoor Makeover delivered a plan that is much better than the competitors from design to build. I ended up with an exceptional result that I totally love and enjoy daily. I am very proud to show off my special area in my yard and everyone loves hanging outside now; Navid asked questions to figure out my lifestyle. Furthermore, Navid discovered what I needed and wanted, of which I was unaware when we started the process.”
