Daylight Savings Time has been used in the United States since 1918. Initially, the purpose was to establish a standard time for the United States, and to preserve daylight. Since that point in history, daylight savings time has been used sporadically throughout the United States, as the choice has been a local one. Whether an area moves to Standard time in the autumn, or has been on Standard time throughout the year, one fact remains - that the evenings are getting dark earlier. The long summer days grow shorter until the typical commuter arrives at home in the dark. All of the work done to enhance the beauty of a house and landscape is hidden until spring arrives, the days grow longer, and Daylight Savings returns again. It doesn't have to be this way.
NiteLites Outdoor Lighting, the Architectural and Landscape Lighting professionals, thinks there is an alternative. People build upscale homes and spend a lot on landscaping, but at night, especially once Daylight Savings time has ended, it's hardly visible because the property is poorly or unattractively lit. The irony is that hard working individuals' main opportunity to see their homes is in the evening or at night. The solution is architectural and landscape lighting, which can showcase the exterior designs of a house and its landscape.
Landscape lighting systems are becoming increasingly popular. An outdoor lighting system brings a number of benefits to the homeowner – an increase in property value, unsurpassed curb appeal, expanded living and entertainment areas, low cost operation because the systems use low voltage fixtures, and expandability. Perhaps the most important benefits that an outdoor lighting system can provide are safety and security.
A poorly lit path, step, or driveway can lead to accidents that can be avoided. A well-lit walkway allows your family and guests to see potential hazards and enables them to avoid those hazards. A professionally designed and installed outdoor lighting system provides a walkway that is illuminated adequately to provide safety, but subtly enough to avoid a high intensity, runway effect.
At the same time, landscape lighting not only highlights the features of a property owner's yard, it also eliminates the "dark spots" that intruders could use and be unnoticed. Potential intruders prefer to work in the dark, and not to be noticed. By eliminating the dark areas in the property, a homeowner lowers the chances of being a target of these potential intruders, thus making the home and the property more secure. The lengthened darkness brought on by the end of Daylight Savings time does not become an invitation to these intruders.
