How to Make Your Yard More Safe and Secure
By: Tricia Craven Worley
Proper lighting can improve the safety and security of your yard. Pay particular attention to the outside lighting for your:
- Garage and driveway.
- All entrances to your home.
- Steps and walkways.
- Windows that are hidden by trees or shrubs.
To increase security, install motion detectors on flood lights. Lighting for steps and walks includes carriage lights and low voltage landscape lighting.
