The value that landscape lighting adds to a home can vary depending on several factors, including the quality of the lighting installation, the overall aesthetics, safety, and the location of the property – as well as the preferences of the prospective homebuyer. While there is no specific quantitative data on how much landscape lighting directly increases a home's value, there are several ways in which it can positively impact a property.

In this brief article brought to you by Abulous Lighting, we’ll review the many ways that landscape lighting installation can improve the value of your property. If you are looking for a reputable company to handle your outdoor lighting installation, then consider Abulous Lighting. Our courteous representatives are on standby to address any questions or concerns, or to schedule an on-site visit or consultation.

Financial Value Added by Landscape Lighting

If you are a homeowner interested in increasing the market value of your property, then you know that curb appeal matters. The more eyes your home draws, the greater your bargaining power. Landscape lighting highlights architectural features, gardens, and walkways to make sure the first impression is made on the best aspects of your property.

Further, with LED fixtures and smart design, you can optimize energy efficiency. The cost savings is an attractive selling point.

The Emotional Benefits

Let’s face it: a home is reflection of the owner’s personality. Landscape lighting extends the boundaries of your drawing board, allowing you paint a larger picture. Outdoor lighting also allows homeowners to enjoy the outdoors even after dark. This sense of creativity, expression, and enjoyment is often enough for most homeowners to invest in landscaping lighting.

Safety and Security

Nothing is more valuable than safety and security. Outdoor lighting’s most valuable benefit is in this regard. With well-lit pathways and walkways, you won’t have to worry about tripping and falling. Professionals like Abulous Lighting can also integrate motion-sensing lights, which are especially effective in scaring off trespassers. Proper lighting design will eliminate hiding spots like shadows and corners.

If you have a pool, pond, or water feature on your property, then lighting is particularly touchy. You want visibility without the risk of electricity and water coming into contact. This is one of many reasons why outdoor lighting installation should be left to trained and experienced professionals.

Better Sense of Community

Your neighborhood will affect the value of your property, and outdoor lighting creates an inviting atmosphere and encourages neighbors to invest in their property. This sense of unity in a community has cascading benefits for the overall quality of life and the value of the properties.

Hire Experienced Professionals

Outdoor lighting is great, but poor installations can turn it into a liability. Poor design can end up wasting money, and improper electrical wiring can pose safety threats. If you are interested in brightening up your property, then hire experienced professionals. Get started with a consultation by calling Abulous Lighting. We look forward to hearing about your vision, and bringing it to life.

Absolute Lighting installed my outdoor flood lights 2 years ago and they are beautiful! They did such a great job that I used them to setup and take down the Christmas lights for the past 2 years. I would highly recommend them. Frank always responds to questions and automatically puts me on the schedule for set up and take down of the Christmas Lights.

Frank and the team at Abulous were great to work with. They came out and retro-upgraded some previous lighting that we had done a few years back and made it look as seamless and continuous as possible. They also worked with us on the best (& most economical) way to light up a hard to reach area of our yard. They also followed up with us after we had another group of workers "disturb" some of the lighting wires and came back out and fixed everything back up again. Very friendly, dependable local resource who do great work. Highly recommend.

After reviewing multiple companies we contracted with Abilous Lighting to create outside accent lighting for our home, backyard patio, walkways, & fire pit.  Their ideas and design were the best!   It was a pleasure working with Frank Hasty, who did  the design, and his crew of Brandon & Rusty who performed the work.  All were excellent to work with.   We are very happy with Abulous Lighting.
