5 Reasons to Install Landscape Lighting in Winter

February 22, 2019
Landscape, Year - Round

Although we have it pretty lucky here in SoCal, the winter months can still be cold, wet, and unmotivating. It’s so easy to just hide indoors with a good book or a comforting Netflix marathon, while delaying your outdoor projects. This winter, try something new and productive by tackling your landscape lighting head on. There are many benefits to installing early and before the rush of spring. Read our top five reasons for installing outdoor lighting fixtures this wintery time of year.

1. It Gets Dark Early

Until the vernal equinox on March 20, many of us have to face the daily routine of returning home from work in the dark. Installing landscape lighting in your driveway and entrance will ensure a beautiful, illuminated, and safe return home. Plus, more dark hours in the winter ultimately means more time to utilize your outdoor lights and experience their dazzling effects. Because who wouldn’t want more of perfectly brightened columns and elegantly lit foliage?

2. Winter is Wet and Slippery

This year, we’ve finally been getting a decent amount of rain. When the weather is frightful, wet, and windy, being outside can be unpredictable and slippery. By lining your outdoor pathways with landscape lighting fixtures, you and your loved ones will avoid nasty scrapes and falls. When you arrive home after a tiring adventure or long day at the office, the last thing you want to worry about is tripping in the dark. Landscape lighting will guide the way to safety for you, friends, and family.

3. Recreate the Festivity of the Holidays

After the joy and festivity of the holiday season, the winter months can seem extra long, bland, and dark. When you install landscape lighting in winter, you’ll recreate the bright lights, excitement, and beauty of Christmas. In addition, you can easily install lenses on your outdoor fixtures to change the colors of your lights. This means you can customize your lights for each holiday that comes along. From green for St. Patrick’s Day to red, white, and blue for Independence Day, you and your home will always celebrate together.
