Why a Professional Should Install Your Landscape Lighting
Updated: Aug 23, 2021
Landscape lighting has a ton of benefits to enhance your home. Once you’ve decided to add outdoor lighting to your property, you may be tempted to save some money by doing things yourself. Plenty of people visit big box stores to purchase lighting and then YouTube additional installation instructions. Others may be handy with small electrical repairs making them feel qualified to tackle a larger project like landscape lighting. The common experience they share is regret for not allowing a professional handle placement and installation. While outdoor lighting may not seem like a huge deal, there are several reasons to hand this job off to a pro.
Safety and Efficacy
Your family’s safety is of the utmost importance when it comes to electrical wiring and mistakes can pose a risk. Faulty grounding, weak connections, and overloaded circuits can lead to fire hazards that can put your family in danger. It can also lead to inefficiencies in your entire system, costly utility bills, or even expensive electrical repairs. The experienced technicians at Vivid Landscape Lighting know exactly how to determine adequate voltage and layout while accounting for variables such as environmental factors. Allowing a skilled professional to install your outdoor lighting gives you the peace of mind that it will work properly because it has been installed correctly and safely.
Outdoor areas that seem to need lighting during the day may not necessarily be the best place for a light source once darkness falls. The goal is to see the benefits and ambiance the light provides without actually seeing its source. The trained professionals at Vivid Landscape Lighting understand that proper placement is vital to the beauty and functionality of the lights. They survey your property, map out a plan, and envision the finished project before getting started.
When you decide to add landscape lighting to your home, you’re adding ambiance. Outdoor lighting is one of the most coveted exterior features for homebuyers. Unfortunately, many do-it-yourselfers mistakenly over-light important areas. Instead of adding curb appeal, it looks more like a glaring mess that agitates the neighbors. However, having the right system professionally installed can actually increase perceived property value producing a return on your investment.
When it comes to that soft glowing landscape you’re after, the trained professionals at Vivid Landscape Lighting will custom tailor a polished look to elevate your home.
