Outdoor lighting is a great addition to any home, it not only adds curb appeal and value, but also safety.  Your home is a large investment and houses those very close to you, your family. Investing in a professional landscape lighting plan can help make your home more safe after sunset.

Safety Benefits of Outdoor Lighting

  • Avoid Injury – Falls are the leading cause of at home injuries. Outdoor lighting can help prevent injuries by providing yourself, along with family and friends a well lit outdoor space to navigate after dark. Stair and pathway lighting are two great examples of lighting techniques used to help avoid injuries.
  • Increase Security – A well lit home is much more likely to deter criminals than a poorly lit home. It is recommended for this reason to call a professional landscape lighting company, even bright lights when installed improperly can create deep shadows to hide criminals. Motion lights and professionally lit dark areas are two examples of lighting techniques used for security.

There are many different uses for landscape lighting and many reasons home owners choose to have professional outdoor lighting installed. Whether your looking out for the safety of your family or added home value, the expert landscape lighting designers at Berns Landscaping can help you achieve a beautiful after sunset.

For over 20 years, the Designers at Berns Landscaping Services have been providing brilliant holiday sparkle and captivating indoor holiday settings to many satisfied customers. Berns Landscaping uses LED holiday lighting strands to decorate the homes of our clients. The advantages of LED lights are overwhelming in compassion to the old-fashioned incandescent counterparts.

Advantages Of LED Holiday Lighting

Professional LED Holiday Lighting & Decor

  • Energy Efficient– Light-Emitting Diodes, also known as LED lights use 85 – 90% less energy than traditional incandescent lights. LED holiday lights are an eco-friendly option and comply with Energy Star Standards and use about 1/10th of the energy used by incandescent bulbs. These energy efficient lights on average can save up to $10 per every 300 hours of use.
  • Savings While LED lights have a higher initial price, the long term savings surpasses the competition. Overall energy consumption, longevity, durability and maintenance must all be considered in the savings. On average LED light strands last 10 times longer than incandescent strands, and use 85-90% less energy, these two benefits alone outweigh the initial price tag.
  • Safety LED lights do not produce heat, as their energy is light-emitting not heat-emitting. Because  of this LED lights remain cool to the touch, making them a fire-resistant option to light live Christmas trees, child-friendly and safer  overall in comparison to incandescent bulbs.
  • Longevity – Because heat exposure shortens the life-span of Christmas lights, LEDs far outlive their incandescent counterparts. LED lights can last up to 50,000 hours, this means LED lights could be left on for 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for 6 years before burning out.
  • Larger Selection – When it comes to selection, LED Christmas lights offer a larger selection of color options. Color choices and combinations are endless, with interchangeable light strands to customize your own color pattern, color changing bulbs and multiple solid color options. There are many unique colors of LED lights available including teal, pink, purple, burgundy, champagne and more. With LED holiday lighting you are no longer forced to stick with traditional lighting decor colors.

By welcoming us into your home, you will have the time to focus on those you love while we transform your wishes and ideas into a holiday season to remember!  Your hassle-free experience will include beautiful design, efficient installation, in-season maintenance, and post-season removal.

Pruning is the most important maintenance aspect of tree care. The late dormant season is the best time for most pruning. Winter dormant pruning which is done shortly before spring growth, leaves fresh wounds exposed for only a short time period before the wound healing process begins.

Winter dormant pruning of trees and shrubs offers several advantages over pruning during the growing season.

Winter Dormant Pruning Michigan
Winter dormant pruning offers many benefits compared to pruning done during the growing season.

Advantages of Winter Dormant Pruning

  • Deciduous plants are leaf free, allowing for more accurate pruning and reduced cleanup times.
  • Thinning the canopy and removing dead wood reduces storm damage potential.
  • Insects and disease spores are inactive during the winter, reducing the chance for infestation.
  • Rejuvenation and clearance pruning can be preformed with minimal risk of promoting sucker growth.

Call today to schedule your winter dormant pruning.  When you call the experts at Berns Landscaping, you can be sure that a professional Michigan Arborist will arrive to do the job. Unable to call? Fill out our online request form and we will get back to you at your convenience.
