With the proper planning, outdoor lighting can make your home a more secure, safe and attractive place to live. Exterior light fixtures should be installed at all entrances including back doors and garages. Driveways and paths should always be adequately illuminated for safety reasons. By using a mix of low-profile path lighting and post mounted lanterns, you can achieve the lighting you need to keep these corridors safe while at the same time highlighting your favorite landscape features, planting beds and your home's exterior design.
When additional security is desired, motion controlled flood lights are the perfect outdoor lighting solution. Install them as needed to fill in the darker and unlit areas around your home. Remember a well lit home exterior is generally understood to be a strong deterrent to burglars, vandals and thieves.
