5 Reasons Your Business Needs Landscape Lighting
It’s easy for current and potential customers to see your business during the day, but do you become invisible to them at night? Strategically placed commercial landscape lighting lets your business continue bringing in customers after hours and helps you not lose them — or your business’s potential — to the dark. Read on to learn how commercial landscape lighting benefits you and your company and lets you shine more than the unlit competition once the sun sets.
The Value of Commercial Landscape Lighting
Many of the benefits of residential landscape lighting also applies to commercial properties.
Another appeal of commercial lighting is that you can highlight your beautiful landscaping like trees, plants, and flowers or your building’s interesting architectural features. Contrasting light and shadow, using some of the lighting types below, make your property more visually appealing to anyone who sees it at night.
- Path lights
- Flood lights
- Step lights
- Hardscape lights
- Bollard lights
Commercial landscape lighting also has benefits for companies looking to go greener. Today’s lighting options include low voltage, solar, and LED lights that give off beautiful glows while positively impacting the environment. The reduced energy use equals utility cost savings for your business.
Maybe an overlooked benefit of commercial landscape lighting is that it relays to potential customers that you are a professionally-run business that pays attention to detail and is willing to do whatever it takes to offer customers a positive experience. It also gives you a competitive advantage over your nearby rival businesses that have not invested in lighting when passersby can see your business’s signage, entranceways, walking paths, and parking areas.
Particularly if your business operates at night, such as a restaurant or entertainment venue, it becomes even more essential that guests of your commercial property first see professional lighting when they encounter your business’s exterior.
In addition to helping customers find you, commercial landscape lighting also makes your property safer for your employees and guests. Potential hazards like steps, uneven ground, or debris on walkways can all pose a safety risk. Raising visibility for anyone who walks on your grounds reduces the potential for avoidable falls or injuries that your business can be held liable for later. It also discourages criminal activity like vandalism, burglaries, or property theft by eliminating places criminals could hide once the sun goes down.
Being seen is the most significant benefit of commercial landscape lighting and addresses the simple idea that customers can’t buy from you or use your services if they don’t know you’re there during the night. Adding lighting to your business makes your business stand out and lets customers see you no matter what time of day they encounter your property.
