With the dawn of a new year comes many resolutions that never reach fruition. From weight loss, to kicking a bad habit for good. Even though most folks set out to achieve these new goals they set for themselves with vigor and enthusiasm, we sometimes tend to set unrealistic goals for ourselves. This year, why not decide upon a New Year’s resolution that is easily attainable and will not only benefit you but your entire family as well. Make the decision to resolve in creating a safer home and landscape for your entire family though the addition of outdoor lighting.
By adding professionally installed lighting to areas such as pathways, walkways and well-traveled areas in and around your landscape you set the stage for hassle free travel to and from areas frequented at your residence. Areas such as driveways, entrances and exits can be enhanced for safety’s sake through outdoor lighting.
A good example of how outdoor lighting can provide a safer scenario is an installation we recently completed for a couple who frequently play host to their elderly parents in their guest house which is located adjacent to their main residence. Even though the guest house is a short distance away, the couple would have to travel the distance often times in the dark after a long evening of games and enjoying time with their family. The lack of visibility between the main house and guest house was often a source of concern for these residents. The homeowners made the decision to add outdoor lighting along the path that leads to the guest house to ensure their parents were secure in reaching the guest house in the dark. Installing the lighting has given them peace of mind that their loved ones have a clear and safe path to their quarters during their stay, no matter what fun keeps them traveling to their guest quarters late into the evening.
Outdoor lighting can provide safety in a myriad of locations around your home. Being able to see fallen limbs, and brush make travel safer around all areas of your home. Outdoor lighting will prevent tripping and falls that often happen when trying to navigate in the dark as well. Outdoor lighting is a good way to make the unexpected visible to you and your guests and be able to avoid it well in advance of accidentally stepping on it or tripping over it, whereas it can become a hazard. From sticks to snakes, you will see what is up ahead and be able to react to avoid a mishap. Outdoor lighting keeps your area lit to ensure safety. Adding illumination to areas that take you to and from your home on a regular basis is a refreshing way to ring in the new year. Areas such as paths which lead to outdoor living structures such as gazebos or detached porches, pool houses and even that herb garden that you frequent just before dinner to snip fresh basil and thyme to top off that perfect dish. Any area that is frequented in the evening can become safer with outdoor lighting.
