Be the Envy of your Neighborhood: 4 Areas Lights Boost Curb Appeal

We all want our homes to look their best. Adding lights to your home and landscape is one of the best ways to enhance the beauty of your property.


Here are four areas to light to boost your curb appeal!




One of our favorite ways to light a property is by highlighting the architecture of a home. Lighting the architecture allows you to show off the unique and beautiful of elements of your house even at night.


Seeing these parts of your home lit up gives you a whole new perspective and appreciation for your architecture that you never had before! 


Illuminating your home's architecture, especially around the garage and entryways, will also make your home feel safer and will deter trespassers. Curb appeal and security…score! 





You have invested in beautiful, high-end outdoor landscapes, so don’t settle for basic landscape lighting that doesn’t showcase them properly. The right lighting does more than illuminate your landscape, it creates warmth, comfort, and improves the overall visual appeal of your home.


Once you see your beautifully lit outdoor space, you’ll wonder how you lived in the dark for so long.


Walkways and steps



A great addition to your property is path lights. At night, one of the biggest struggles is navigating walkways and steps in a landscape. This is issue is elevated for your guests who are unfamiliar with your paths! 


Path lights are the perfect solution to this problem. Whether it’s the pathway leading up to the front door or backyard fire pit, path lights will help you and your guests reach the destination safely. 





Why limit the “curb appeal” to the front of the house? Balance out the landscape upgrade by adding lights to your backyard. From the pool, to the patio, to the outdoor kitchen, there are so many options to make your backyard living space your favorite place to be. 


Something we always say here at Landscape Lighting Pro is, “We light the front of our home's for everyone else, but the backyard we light for us and our own enjoyment.”
