    aaron, are you wanting to do this job yourself. Not for sure why you haven't got any response...couple of reasons maybe. I and other's are finding it harder and harder to give out free advice to diy's. We've spent much tima and $$$ so it becomes more and more difficult to just have people pick our brains for free...secondly, your house looks new, no interesting landscaping/trees-patio-hardscape-waterscape etc. The architecture on your home is pretty straight forward..graze the walls with some uplight and install some path lights...anything more will cost you $$$ :)
    I don't mean that in a snotty way

    Aaron, perhaps some additional information as to what you would like to do. As Chris has stated, the architecture is simple and the plantings are somewhat basic. Do you have plans for updating the landscaping and perhaps highlighting some of the plants? Always best to go with safety, security, then aesthetics. Light the walk where there are turns and steps, any areas that are dark or may offer an intruder a place to hide or break in and then high lights on the home or plantings.
