Functional Landscape Lighting to Consider this Summer

Landscape lighting is a little more important than you may think. A well-lit landscape is the difference between a beautiful, inviting house after dark and a house you can’t see after 7 pm. Not only does it improve the beauty of your home, but it’s functional as it improves night time safety, prevents tripping or other accidents. Most importantly, it’ll definitely make you the envy of your neighbors.

Showcase Your Trees

Illuminating the prettiest trees in your yard is a simple way of creating a focal point for your property. This creates nice, natural centerpieces and lights up a good portion of your yard. When guests arrive for a late dinner party or event, they’ll be able to navigate your yard with ease and not worry about stepping on an ant pile in the dark. Take advantage of your foliage by having Harrison Irrigation place lights at the base of your trees. Our team of Jacksonville outdoor lighting experts knows exactly how to strategically place the lights so you can enjoy beautifully lit trees that also light up your yard.


Improve Home Security

First and foremost, determine why you want landscape lighting. Most people want outdoor lights to increase safety. It’s a great way to ensure your family and visitors feel safe arriving and leaving your home, no matter the time of day. Not to mention, if you have a surveillance system, landscape lighting is the perfect way to illuminate the parts of your home being watched by security cameras. Others may want landscape lighting to illuminate the architecture of their home. This is a fabulous way to emphasize the features of your home you take the most pride in. Once you determine the purpose, we can get started on a design plan.


Porch Lighting

The porch and patio space are important areas of your home with plenty of uses. This is the transition area between the interior and exterior and if it isn’t illuminated properly, you and your guests may have trouble arriving and leaving in the dark. It’s scary to come home at night and navigate your way into the house in the dark. The patio area is usually the eye candy of your home so incorporating outdoor lighting will ensure your guests notice your beautiful entryway. Whether you opt for lamps, torches or hanging lights, make sure the illumination is strong and let the pros at Harrison Irrigation handle the placement for you. We’ll be sure to optimize visibility and the architecture of your beautiful entryway.


Landscape lighting is a necessity and adding it around to yard is functional in so many ways. Our team knows just how to accentuate the look of your home while maintaining efficiency and improving your home’s security.
