Great point about outdoor lighting. The security is important but customers being able to see your business from the street at night is a huge opportunity for you. Thanks for the tips.

Thanks for the post. I really like the idea to light the landscape during the night. I like that it helps to increase security and safety. I also like that it helps to show of your landscaping during the night hours as well.


Well done.
