The Tale of the Lost Keys

Flower Bed

There I was, holding a 35 pound little girl slumped over my right shoulder, my computer bag and phone in another, and barely grasping the kids’ backpack in my fingers.

My wife had a severe migraine headache and I offered to take the kids out to the movies to give her a break.

We got back late, around 10pm and the five year old had fallen asleep in the car.

I was hellbent on getting her in the house and up to her bed without waking her up.

As we walked down the dark sidewalk, I reached in my pocket to get the key to the back door. I got one finger around the keyring and pulled them out.

Only to immediately drop them into the flower bed near the azalea, out of sight. I immediately reached down to grab them but couldn’t feel them.

Despite my best efforts to whisper-yell at the older two to find the keys, it was too late. I’d woken her up, and boy was she excited to see mommy. I ended up back out there with a flashlight to find my keys, which were right there in the mulch.

That was several years ago, before I knew how useful landscape lighting is to busy adults. In fact, at this point it’s something I can’t imagine living without.

Apart from the ambiance and wow-factor they bring, it’s practical safety and security effects are priceless.

  • To find your phone, keys or wallet you dropped walking to the door
  • To have your walkway lit up so you or loved ones don’t trip and get injured
  • To know there’s nobody snooping around the yard

This is a perfect time to install outdoor lighting. Dry weather allows us to work efficiently and get these projects installed quickly.

And no – you will NOT see a jump in your electric bill with these efficient lights!
