Landscape lighting is one of the most dramatic ways to enhance your outdoor living spaces. But although it creates stunning effects, landscape lighting is relatively easy to maintain. Your initial investment will go far once you have your lighting installed. Of all the types of lighting to choose from, low-voltage landscape lighting is the one that’s gotten the most attention in recent years.
What is Low-Voltage Landscape Lighting?
As you may have guessed from the name, low-voltage landscape lighting operates on significantly less wattage than traditional landscape lighting. While the traditional type runs on 120-volt current that’s run from your home, low-voltage systems operate on only a 12-volt current. Less voltage means less energy consumption, meaning you’ll have lower energy bills every month than you would with traditional outdoor lighting. It also means that the lighting system is safer and less expensive than those with a higher voltage.
Where Can You Install Outdoor Lighting?
Outdoor lighting can be used to create a variety of effects around your property. Accent lighting is a perfect way to catch someone’s eye and bring attention to a particular feature in your yard. These include floodlights and spotlights. Pathway lighting is available in a variety of styles. It’s used to highlight driveways, sidewalks, garden paths, and other walkways around your property. Highlights are placed at the bottom of something you’d like to feature, like a tree or wall. Low-voltage options are available for all of these lighting styles.
