How Outdoor Landscape Lighting Can Enhance Your Ohio Home
Updated: Apr 18, 2020
Landscape lighting is one of the key services offered by Bluegrass Incorporated and we’d like to help explain why it has become so important and beneficial to your Canton, Ohio home. A landscape lighting design not only enhances the view of your home at night, but it adds an important degree of security by eliminating those shadowy areas where danger could lurk. It also helps guide you or your guests along pathways or stairs, to prevent injuries from falling. In addition, it keeps burglars from targeting your house when they know they have a better chance of being seen.
Another great benefit of landscape lighting for your Canton, Ohio or Akron, Ohio home is curb appeal. According to the ASLA (American Society of Landscape Architects), they recommend that homeowners invest 10 percent of the home’s value in total landscaping. Landscape lighting should easily fit into that ten percent. If you’re going to invest in landscaping, it should be on display after dark too. If you drive through your Canton, Ohio neighborhood at night, the houses that will stand out are the ones with landscape lighting designs properly installed by a landscape lighting professional like Bluegrass Incorporated.
Outdoor lighting adds a sense of warmth to your Northeast Ohio home and will make your guests feel more welcome. If you have outdoor living spaces like fire pits, patios, or outdoor kitchens, imagine how crucial it is to have them lit up at night. Make your company feel safe and aware of their surroundings while they enjoy your proudly displayed property after dark.
