It’s the time of year when you can look outside and not know if it’s 5 PM or midnight. The days are short, the air is frigid…winter’s officially here in Nashville.

Even though darkness hits earlier than we’d like it to this time of year, your home’s exterior and landscape design still deserve to be seen. Landscape lighting can make all the difference. Here are three reasons to consider investing in exterior lights for your home this year.


Not only are lights aesthetically pleasing, but they’re also functional. Whether they’re in your front yard or back yard, lights allow you to use your outdoor spaces any time of day. A few areas of your property where you can feature lights include:

  • Walkways
  • Stairs
  • Outdoor seating areas
  • Pools
  • Driveways

Curb Appeal

Just like a spotlight shining down on a performer on a stage, outdoor lights can make your property stand out from the rest. Lights can add dimension and style to your home. They pick up on architectural features and make your landscape design pop. Additionally, a home that’s well-lit appeals to potential buyers as it consistently ranks as one the most desirable features for homeowners by the National Association of Home Builders.


Who doesn’t want to make their home a safer place for all? By illuminating your property, you’re improving the overall visibility at night and reducing the risk of anyone tripping and falling. Placing lights along walkways can help people see any uneven areas, stairs, cracks, or drop-offs. Landscape lighting can ensure friends leave your house with good memories, not a twisted ankle.
