Landscape Lighting Tips


Keep reading for landscape lighting tips, including how it can increase your home value, add safety and more.

First of all, what is quality landscape lighting and how does it differ from the lights at box stores?

Professionally installed, high quality, low-voltage outdoor lighting is more efficient than ever before by utilizing energy efficient LED fixtures.  These new fixtures require roughly 80% less voltage!  Traditionally, fixtures became quite hot; LED fixtures create far less heat, resulting in significantly longer lamp and fixture life. Depending on application, LEDs can last 50,000 hours or more. Additionally, with FX Luminaire LED lights (pictured above), you have the option of creating different themes that vary the mood and ambiance in your outdoor space to fit a quiet evening with family or a festive gathering with friends.  LED lights are easy to come by but there is a wide range of quality.  The FX Luminaire LED light fixtures our Landscape Services team installs are durable, constructed of brass and/or copper and come with a great warranty.
