You’ve done everything you can to make your home and backyard look great. So why should you let that hard work go to waste at nightfall when, with just a single switch and well-placed landscape lighting, can make it all visible during the evening? If done correctly, landscape lights can make the most of what you’ve got by highlighting the focal points of your home and direct the onlooker’s attention to prized trees and plantings.
The majority of landscape lighting these days is low voltage, and not without any good reason. Compared 120-volt units, it is much safer to work with and more affordable to install. And although low voltage lights get one-tenth the power, with the help of a step down transformer, there is no limit to the effects they could get, from ethereal moonlight beaming down from a tree canopy to a soft flow that washes over a low garden wall. A pleasing landscape lighting does not just involve selecting the right hardware but also the addition of artistry and creativity.
