5 Reasons to Install Landscape Lighting in Winter

At Paramount Lawn + Landscape, we love installing landscape lighting in winter. Along with keeping our team employed and active during the season, it’s truly the best time for homeowners to make this investment in their property. Here are 5 reasons:

  1. Light Up Long, Dark Nights
  2. Landscaping is Dormant
  3. Looks Beautiful in the Snow
  4. One of the Few Outdoor Improvements You Can Make in the Cold
  5. Likely to Get the Best Price When Demand is Low

We’ve included some pictures to help you imagine what your home could look like with landscape lighting.

Landscape Lighting in Winter: Now's the Best Time to Install

1st Reason to Install Landscape Lighting in Winter:
Light Up Long, Dark Nights

In the Cincinnati area, winter is long and dark. A new landscape lighting installation makes your property come alive. Instead of coming home to a dreary home, enjoy the cheerfulness of a well-lit house and landscaping.

And if you have a firepit or outdoor fireplace, hardscape lighting is the perfect option to add ambiance and safety to the area. Check out our article “Outdoor Lighting Ideas for All Around the Home” for more inspiration.

2nd Reason to Install Landscape Lighting in Winter:
Landscaping is Dormant

The best time to have landscape lighting installers working in your landscaping is when your plants are dormant for the season. We are always careful when digging in your landscaping beds, and doing it in winter makes it even easier. So, installing landscape lighting in winter prevents stress to your plants.

Plus, any disturbed dirt can easily be covered up with new mulching in the spring. (Installation in the spring through fall can disturb fresh mulch).

3rd Reason to Install Landscape Lighting in Winter:
Looks Beautiful in the Snow

LED landscape lighting does get warm enough to melt the snow off the fixture, while leaving the surrounding snow still piled up. This creates a beautiful effect of “glowing” snow that you’ll only see in the winter. See examples in the article “LED Landscape Lighting in the Snow.”

4th Reason to Install Landscape Lighting in Winter:
One of the Few Outdoor Improvements You Can Make in the Cold

When the ground is frozen and precipitation can be dangerous, you’re limited in the kinds of investments you can make to your property. But installing landscape lighting in the winter is an improvement you can enjoy right away, and for all four seasons. See more pictures in our article, “Landscape Lighting Ideas for Cincinnati Homes.”

5th Reason to Install Landscape Lighting in Winter:
Likely to Get the Best Price When Demand is Low

Although winter is undoubtedly the best time to install landscape lighting, it seems many homeowners aren’t in on the secret. Demand is lower at this time, so you’ll typically get the best price and fastest installation.

Additionally, many landscape companies (like Paramount) have multi-talented teams who install landscape lighting, hardscapes, landscapes and more. Our team has higher availability for landscape lighting when the weather prevents us from performing other landscaping services.
