Increase Curb Appeal with Landscape Lighting
I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness because it shows me the stars. – Og Mandino

For the past few years, we’ve been transitioning our front yard from grass to a more drought tolerant/lower maintenance landscaping. At the same time, we also wanted to increase curb appeal to our home. No, we aren’t selling it, but it is a good investment. We purchased our fixer-upper house in a nice neighborhood so the work we put will help increase the value of the home.
As I mentioned, it’s taken a few years but we have finally re-landscaped the yard ourselves and partnered with The Home Depot to add curb appeal with some wonderful Hampton Bay LED Low Voltage Lighting.
Some people refer to landscape lighting as adding a moonlight effect to your yard/home. It gives it a soft glow. And according to House Logic, good landscaping can add up to up to 28% of your overall home value.
Here are some additional reasons to add lighting to your landscaping~
- accents features of your home
- welcomes guests
- safety- illuminating pathways and keeping the home well lit
- creates visual interest
We are happy with our new yard and believe the lighting has definitely added value to our home.
If you are wondering what lights to use and what you would need for your project, The Home Depot has great in-store information to help you start your project.
