Summer is a great season for extended playtime in the yard. Whether it is playing Frisbee or BBQing some yummy dinner options, it is nice to be able to enjoy some extra hours of sunlight, warmth, and fresh air outside your home. with that said, once the sun sets it can be a lot harder to enjoy the outdoors even if you really are trying to extend you time outside.

Why Add Lights To Your Outdoor Spaces?
Some people may not feel like it is necessary to add lights to their backyard or their front yard. Why bother with that when you have that battery-powered lantern, right? Well, the truth is there are several benefits you’ll enjoy when you install outdoor lights and leave the lantern for camping trips or emergencies.
- Increased Safety and Security: When you install lights outside of your home it is going to make things a lot safer than before. Lighting up those patio steps reduces the chances someone might trip and fall while security lights outside your garage are a great way to deter thieves.
- Improved Reliability: Have you ever been outside with your trusty lantern, perhaps trying to finish up a late-night batch of ribs on the grill, only to have the batteries on the lantern die? When you install regular lighting this isn’t going to be an issue. Lights powered by flipping a switch are far more reliable than their battery-powered cousins.
- Custom Lighting Options: If you aren’t a fan f floodlights you don’t have to worry, there is more than one option available to you when it comes to lighting up your outdoor space. You can opt for hanging lights across the yard, faux “streetlights” built into your patio, or even small solar-powered pathway lights to lead the way to your front door.
- Added Atmosphere: Last but certainly not least, when you work with a licensed electrician to get your outdoor lights set up it will add to the atmosphere of your outdoor space. Hanging lights are always going to look better than strategically placed lanterns which will encourage that extra time spent outside the house this summer.
Can I Do This Myself?
We know it can be tempting to try your hand at installing lights on your garage or in your yard by yourself but, and we cannot stress this enough, it is a bad idea. Unless you are a licensed electrician, trying to DIY an electrical project like this or letting an amateur try their hand at it is incredibly dangerous. Avoid the potential for injury or a full-blown power outage to your home by scheduling your electrical installations and other services with a team of pros like ours.
