Safety and Security
Installing lighting on walkways and driveways helps improve your home’s safety and security at night. Path lights, spot lighting and outside wall sconces will help prevent you and guests from injuring yourselves or driving off the driveway. Also, lighting your landscape correctly can help eliminate dark areas that potential burglars can use to hide.
In the image gallery below are a few before and after shots from a recent property in Sedona. Driveways and steps are usually a main focal point for most properties. In Sedona the driveways are usually longer and houses in general are built around the boulders and mountain environments. These long, narrow driveways cause hazards for guests and need to be lit up properly. Strategically placing lights out of reach of car doors and tires that may cause damage to them is also important. In addition to the safety factor that landscape lighting provides, accenting the plants and rocks help make the property unique when lit up a night.
Furthermore, with certain “dark sky” areas, like Sedona, there are strict limitations on lighting. Only down lights can be used in these areas.
