The Importance of Outdoor Lighting for Winter

Posted on: December 8, 2021

When you are putting in a new deck or patio, you will be thinking about materials, style, appearance, how you will use it, and many other items. One thing that might not cross your mind is outdoor lighting. During the summer months, perhaps lighting isn’t as important, but in the winter, you need it even in the early evening hours. Get advice from your chosen deck builder in Hanover Maryland when you are ready to light up that patio or deck. Here are some benefits of outdoor lighting during the winter months.

Avoid Slips And Falls

Naturally, you never want anyone to get hurt on your property, yourself included, and having the outdoor area well lit can help to avoid those injuries and accidents. People approaching your home are a lot more likely to see the ice shining in the light coming from your deck or patio than they would be in the dark. You want to illuminate their paths so they can tread lightly and carefully when needed.

Protect Your Home

As much as you might hate it, winter lighting is short and your home is likely darkened a lot earlier than you might like. That means any time from late afternoon on, security could be more of an issue. If you light your home from the outside, unwanted visitors are a lot less likely to choose your property as a target. You are protecting your home by lighting it sufficiently around the property.


Homes with the right lighting on the deck and patio have a more appealing look to them that will increase your curb appeal. You might want to place lights on the corners of the deck or around the edge of the patio, for example, to give it the illumination you want, and to make it look more inviting.
