The Benefits of Landscape Lighting in the Winter


See how landscape lighting continues to provide beauty, security, safety and enjoyment throughout every season.... McKay Landscape Lighting - Omaha, Nebraska

Now that there is snow on the ground, it is starting to feel more like winter. It’s hard to believe we are almost halfway through the season.

One unexpected benefit of landscape lighting is how it can provide year-round enjoyment with each changing season. It can make the winter nights even more magical. When the soft light hits a fresh snowfall on beautiful evergreen trees and landscaping, it provides a unique effect you don't encounter during the other seasons. 

Today we are sharing this American Bungalow project from our gallery. It was photographed during the winter and spring. The lighting design gives the homeowner a different type of beauty and enjoyment with each changing season while continuing to provide safety and security.

The sun sets earlier in the winter months. In Omaha, Nebraska sometimes it can be dark around 5:00 pm when people are returning home from work or running errands. It can be difficult to navigate your property or recognize potential hazards when you are walking in the dark.  Besides beauty and enjoyment, some strategically placed lighting can provide safety and security.

Several months ago we shared these ways you can protect your outdoor lighting system during the harsh winter months.  Regular maintenance ensures you lights will continue to look and performs their best while providing optimal enjoyment all year long and during each wonderful season.

“We want you to know how much we enjoy our [landscape] lights. They give us enjoyment every night and are just as distinctive in the winter as the rest of the year. Many thanks for a great investment.” 

– Pat H., Omaha, Nebraska
