Landscape Lighting isn’t just for Christmas Anymore
Spring is upon us. Spring means block parties, cookouts and patio dwellers that can stay long into the night. Spring delivers budding flowers and tree leaves. And, it is a time of new beginnings—new careers, new towns, new homes.
Spring also brings with it a rising interest and sales potential in landscape lighting.
Landscape Lighting to Entertain
Customers looking to add new flare to their backyards and patios will be on the hunt for lighting solutions we can help you provide. Homeowners looking to throw the best backyard BBQ will want to dress up their turf. This may come through lighting for paths and sidewalks or in the form of string lights to create a pleasant ambience.
Business owners may also be looking to add outdoor lighting to their property. Hotels and houses of worship could be looking to develop courtyards or other outdoor venues for events. Local diners and restaurants need lighting for patios. And boutiques can use outdoor lighting to make their business appear pleasant and safe after the sun goes down.
Landscape Lighting to Secure
Security is a constant concern, not only for homeowners, but for commercial businesses as well. When you’re trying to find new avenues by which to sell landscape lighting, keep businesses in mind—small businesses, schools, houses of worship and hospitals.
Landscape lighting offers several added security benefits. LMC Embark points out that, in addition to illuminating dark areas, landscape lighting can “improve security system visibility” and may even “deter wildlife”. All three of these benefits speak to home and business owners.
Landscape Lighting to Preserve
Keep the type of light in mind. There are traditional lights and LED lights, but we also need to look at solar lighting. Solar lighting connects with customers who want to reduce energy use. This is a decision that is effective ecologically and economically.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, “Over a third of all green house gas emissions in the United States” can be attributed to electric power. Reducing energy use in areas such as landscape lighting will be beneficial to consumers—and future generations.
In addition, since solar lighting doesn’t rely on energy, consumers don’t have to pay for that energy.
Landscape Lighting to Sell
Homeowners and real estate agents trying to sell a property want to highlight attractive features—and downplay scary blemishes. Landscape lighting is a helpful tool as it can be used to draw attention to certain elements of interest—patios, lawns, gardens or well-constructed paths. It can also be used to provide a modern or trendy look to a property.
While the lighting itself may not odd financial value in the appraisal, it does add curb appeal. And curb appeal can go a long way in drawing the eye of potential homebuyers.
