The Outdoor Lighting Element

Outdoor lighting is an essential element in the plan, design and completion stages of your home landscaping project.  When the sun sets, lights illuminate trees, shrubbery, pathways, steps and hardscape features.  Exterior lighting not only enhances attractiveness but it provides safety. It also adds to the value of the home.

Low voltage LED lighting fixtures manufactured in die-cast solid brass are the superior choice for landscape lighting.  The installation is easy.  LED lights are far more energy efficient than conventional bulbs. We offer fixtures that have LEDs integrated, and all of our other fixtures will allow for an LED bulb, allowing replacement of bulbs throughout the lifespans of the fixtures.

The landscape lighting that requires the greatest amount of effort to install is 120 volt lighting. Wiring for these types of garden lights must be buried at a depth of 18 inches or encased in conduit to protect it from water. A licensed electrician has to install the electrical components. Low-voltage landscape lighting for the backyard needs only an outdoor receptacle and a transformer. The transformer converts the 120 volts coming from the household line to a usable 12 volts to operate the lights.

Outdoor lighting is dramatic, subtle and stunningly attractive and provides a critical safety measure.
