You may not always appreciate it, but West Texas has some of the nicest weather around. Think about it – hot, but not humid summers, mild winters, and a thunderstorm season that pales in comparison to our neighbors in Lubbock or Abilene. All this begs the question – are you taking advantage by spending enough time outside? The licensed electricians at The Bosworth Company can help by installing beautiful exterior lighting to enhance any outdoor space. In this post, we’ll discuss a few ideas and the advantages of effective outdoor lighting for your outdoor landscape.

GET CREATIVE

There are many ways to design your yard lighting to appeal to outdoor living. Maybe you want one high-powered light source that focuses on a particular feature of your yard. It could be a bench, table, fountain, statue, pool, or even your prized grill! More subtle ideas could include casting a shadow onto a wall or fence, or placing lights behind shrubbery to create a soft glow. What about lights hanging from a pergola or tree to provide some ambiance? Area lighting can illuminate an entire space! The possibilities are endless, and we’re here to make it happen.

SAFETY

We’ve talked about enjoying the outdoors after dark, but there are safety and security advantages to lighting as well. Lights around your home are a natural deterrent to burglars who would be easily spotted by passers-by or cameras. Motion-sensing lights can be strategically placed around the exterior of your home to scare off prowlers, or even animals who may come near your property.

For personal safety, lighting can extend into your yard or driveway making sure you have a safe path home. This can be especially helpful to adequately highlight steps or changes in landscape surfaces.

FIXTURES

Don’t forget that you also have a choice when it comes to fixtures. These can be fixed to your home, hung from a tree, stick out from your yard, or even be built directly into your hardscaping, such as concrete. Pick the fixture, pick the bulb, pick the intensity – it’s up to you!
