Curb appeal is an important aspect of promoting a business. When potential customers come to your office, the first thing they’ll notice is the outside of the building. Is it inviting and well maintained? If it’s not, customers may see that as a reflection of your business. Because of that, more and more commercial property owners are investing in public spaces that blend beauty and functionality. And the proper landscape lighting enhances the experience, boosts safety and adds to the overall value of the business.
Here are a few tips so you may make the most of your investment with landscape lighting:
- Cover the basics first. When determining the landscape lighting objectives for your property, the following should be budgeted for first: walkways, parking lots, trees, water features, and unique architectural elements.
- Combine types and styles. With variations of lighting types and styles, you can blend the practicality of outdoor lighting with the beauty of landscaping.
- Use LED lights. Want a longer life for your light? LEDs are a great option. Because of their versatility and durability, LEDs are quickly becoming the number one choice in landscape lighting. They also have practicality not found in other lights. They can be dimmed or brightened, depending on your needs.
- Avoid light pollution. Using lighting shields or glare guards are a good way to avoid outdoor light pollution, which can ruin the effect of your landscape lighting.
