The weather in Denver just can’t be beaten. Sunny days are abundant and the temperatures are mild well into late autumn. However, once the leaves drop and your flowering plants stop producing new growth, you’ll need to find other ways to make your Denver landscape design pop. Landscape lighting is one of the most effective ways to make your design more impactful. Here’s how.
Adds Warmth to Certain Areas
During the warmer months, your plants add life, warmth, and color to your yard. Once they fade, those spaces can look underwhelming and even detract from your home’s exterior. Installing outdoor lighting fixtures with warm, yellow light bulbs can make those areas feel more vibrant. You’re able to point the lights at features you want to highlight, further drawing peoples’ eyes away from the underperforming landscaping and plants until spring rolls back around. The more warmth you can add to your landscaping, the more inviting your property will look to your guests and neighbors.
You Can Decorate With Color
Outdoor lighting doesn’t have to be boring. You’re always free to change the bulbs out and swap the colors whenever you need a change. Use this to your advantage and update your yard for the holidays without having to install new decorations on your lawn or risk damaging your trees. Think about the types of colors you want to look at and select bulbs accordingly. Just make sure to invest in LED bulbs. This way, you’ll be able to leave the lights on for hours on end without wrecking your electric bill. Even better, the light bulbs will last for years so you won’t have to worry about spending additional money every year just to decorate your yard.
Boosts Your Property’s Safety
Even small accent lights for your landscaping can seriously improve safety on your property. Since the sun sets a lot earlier, it’s common for you and your family to be returning home in the dark. This increases your risk of tripping hazards when you’re least expecting them. Adding outdoor lighting to your landscape design, even if you’re just using it to add flair and color can provide just enough ambient light to help you spot potential hazards quickly. Don’t worry—you don’t have to go to the trouble to install dedicated walkway lighting or add new fixtures to your design. Even a single bulb can make a huge difference.
