Security can be added to your home by including landscape-lighting in your outdoor lighting design


By including landscape lighting into the design of your home, you will give outside light to your home at night and help protect your home and give a nice feeling to your curb appeal at night.

landscape lighting
You can find landscape lights in either low voltage or in 115 volts at your favorite electronic store or big box store. If you are lighting up your entire yard with bright lights, then 115 volts would be the way to go, but if you just want a dimmer accent on a tree or specific landscape feature, lighting a path or a sidewalk, then low voltage will work well for you.



The tree in this picture is lit with low voltage spot lights from below, using an "up" lit effect.



Many people love to light their pools, or water features so that when they are enjoying themselves on their deck or patio, they can not only hear the water but see it. The lighted pool also is a safety feature if anyone is swimming after dark.

For 115 volts here are some things to remember:

  1. it is more expensive to use flood lights.

  2. A separate distribution box is needed for the 115 volt circuitry system

  3. Extension cords for low voltage lights can be plugged into the 115 volt system

  4. Put the lighting on either a switch or a timer which runs automatically

outdoor lighting design
The importance of planning your yard landscaping becomes very vital, in knowing where trees and feature rocks or water features will be, if you plan to light them up.
