DIY vs. Hiring a Pro for Backyard Lighting

light post in backyard

Are you thinking of affordable ways to spruce up your backyard this summer? Consider upgrading your outdoor lighting!

The right lighting fixtures can do wonders and transform an ordinary home into a summertime oasis — all while increasing your security, home value, and, most importantly, peace of mind. 

But before you pull out blueprints or drive down to your local home improvement store, take a moment to consider the risks associate with a DIY job of this scale. Hanging string lights on the roof is one thing, but outfitting a large outdoor space with lighting for better surveillance and aesthetic value is a whole other thing. 

A professional electrician has the tools and experience to ensure your outdoor lighting is upgraded to your liking, in minimum time with maximum efficiency, and safely. Let’s take a look at how the pros do it best. 

Style and Technique for Outdoor Lighting

An outdoor lighting company provides more than electrical skill; there’s also the artistic aspect, somewhat like stage lighting. When the sun goes, down and the outdoor lights come on, you don’t want awkward crisscrossing long shadows from floodlights and path lighting that’s hard to follow. We can create lighting that provides full coverage and elegant effects, highlighting your home and outdoor features. 

Technical Design and Installation

Even an experienced homeowner who’s read the electrical code and has experience with wiring will likely miss some of the unique aspects of outdoor wiring that experience and training have taught us. Chances are you understand why you need GFCI outlets like those in your kitchen when you’re wiring outside, but how do you prepare for lightning strikes? Flooding? Vermin and insect damage? Unexpected digging? We have the knowledge and experience to design your system to last and be safe.

Long-Lasting Professional-Grade Fixtures and Wiring

We have access to equipment from our wholesalers that isn’t typically what home stores offer. This gives us the opportunity to do a better job for you — one that lasts longer and offers better security and aesthetic appeal.
