How Landscape Lighting Improves Your Yard

Custom landscape lighting for an OKC landscaping client

Red Valley Landscape designs lighting systems to highlight the best features of your home or office.

Landscape Lighting is an important aspect of adding curb appeal to your home. Outdoor lighting is one of the best ways to change your exterior’s look and feel. Lighting not only enhances the look of your yard, but will also add an element of protection for your family. The Oklahoma City Police department alerts homeowners that a well-lit home is less likely to be targeted in the neighborhood for a break-in during neighborhood watch committee meetings. Another form of safety for your family comes with creating the lighting for paths or walkways. This provides safety for friends and loved ones as it will help prevent tripping or falls.

LED lighting has really added an art form to illuminating an outdoor living Space. These lights allow a designer to control exactly where the light is going and help transform the function and feel of your space. A good designer can cast the shadows of trees on to driveways or help a client to feel as though the exterior living space is an extension of the inside of their house. There are other added benefits to using LED lights for your landscape projects. They do not emit ultra-violet rays nor attract bugs as the bulbs do not get hot.

According to the Residential Landscape Architecture Trends Survey conducted in 2014 by the American Society of Landscape Architects, Landscape Lighting is the most desirable outdoor living feature of homeowners looking to remodel yards. The survey gathered responses from 179 landscape architecture professionals across the country who specialize in residential design and asked them to rate the popularity of outdoor design elements as well as popular features for each.
