Things to consider when deciding to install landscape lighting

When deciding on whether or not you want to install landscape lighting, there are certain things to consider:

  • Do you plan on living in your home longer than two years?
  • Are you concerned about the longevity of your lighting fixtures?
  • Are you comfortable working with electricity?
  • Which is more important to you: security or aesthetic appeal?
  • Are there any interesting features on or around your home that merit attention?
  • Are there any particular areas that you navigate at night that need light?
  • Have you seen a lighting system you admired, and if so can you visualize it on your home?
  • Is your landscaping mature?
  • How much have you invested in your landscaping?
  • How often do you entertain or spend time outside after dark?
  • Is your lighting contractor insured? Can they provide quality references?
