When I moved into my house I noticed that there was hardly any outdoor lighting.
There was a big light pole in my yard and one front door light. I didn’t like either of them but they were all I had. I started doing some research on what the best kind of lights would be. I chose an outdoor ceiling fan for the porch, a bunch of bulb lights to go around it and added lighting around the whole perimeter. I also wanted to replace the pole light with something more attractive. I am not electrical though. I was concerned that I wouldn’t be able to do the installation on my own. So instead I actually called an electrical company to do the work. Boy, am I glad that I did that. These people came in when I expected them and did a fantastic job. There was hardly any debris or mess after the job was done. Now I have lights all around the outside of my house. Anywhere I go, I can see at night. It is especially helpful for when I take my dog on long walks in the evening. Before I would need to bring a flashlight and stick near that light pole. Now my dog and I circle the whole house without any issue. I feel the extra lighting is for smarter security purposes too. As a single gal on her own, I am glad for any added extra layer of protection. Eventually I am going to add a security system to my house for even more protection.
