It’s a competitive market for commercial properties throughout Atlanta, so it’s important to make sure yours stand out in all of the right ways. One way you can do that is by installing landscape lighting.

There is a wide range of benefits of landscape lighting:

  • Security
  • Added Safety
  • Curb Appeal
  • Increase Visibility

It’s easy to see why installing landscape lighting remains a top trend in Atlanta. But, how can you incorporate this feature into your site?

Here are five ways you can enhance your Atlanta commercial property with landscape lighting.

Create an Inviting Entrance Area

You want your property to be welcoming and make a statement, and one way to do that is by creating some visual interest at your entrance.

Entrance Lights at the Georgian

In addition to potted plants near entryways — which are a top trend in Atlanta — installing landscape lighting can really benefit the area, as well.

Whether you use downlighting from the building or ones that shine up from a nearby flowerbed, it will add real value to your property. Plus, it helps people see where they should enter and increases their sense of safety and security.

Improve Signage Visibility

Being seen is a vital part of a commercial property’s success, not just during the day, but also well into the night.

Signage improved by lighting

Using landscape lighting can help your signage stand out and catch passerby’s attention. These can be placed in flowerbeds surrounding signs to shine up and illuminate them.

Using landscape lighting around your signage is especially beneficial for retail shopping centers. Tenants will expect their signs to be seen.

You should also keep shrubs, trees and other foliage maintained and pruned so they don’t cover any signs.

Illuminate Common Areas and Patios

Incorporating relaxing spaces like gazebos and patios with outdoor furniture can set your property apart from the competition and attract tenants. To take your common areas to the next level for 24/7 enjoyment, make sure to add landscape lighting.

Adding downlights in trees or along structures can help illuminate the space without blinding anyone. Installing lights under seating walls is another way to create a naturally bright ambience.

Direct the Traffic Flow on Property

Help visitors get where they need to go on your landscape with well-lit walkways.

Staggered path lights along sidewalks and other walkways will help guests see where they are walking, lowering the risk of slip-and-fall accidents. You can also control your site’s traffic flow with these lights and keep people on the desired paths.

To keep from blinding people with the lights, angle the lights so they don’t aim at eye level. Also, staggering the path lights so that they just overlap with illumination will prevent you from creating an unsightly runway effect.

Spotlight Flowerbeds and Trees

Your foliage features can really add pops of color and visual interest to your site during the day. (Adding plants is actually one of the best ways to enhance any commercial property).

But, are your plants attracting the same attention when the sun goes down?

Use uplighting to showcase your plants, or turn stately trees into focal points.

If your beds are located next to your building or other structures, using landscape lighting will also add an element of security to your property.
