As you think about your backyard, whether it’s for a new home or a long-time abode, you’ve probably given a lot of thought to the trees, flowers, and décor, right? How about landscape lighting? If you haven’t considered landscape lighting yet, now’s the time to do so. Landscape lighting can add pop and pizzazz to an already impressive home exterior. Here are five more reasons why landscape lighting is important for your home:

  • Lighting completes the look. Imagine that you have a beautiful pool and flowers in your backyard. You host a party to show off your home, and everyone gathers out back. Without the right lighting, your guests cannot see your beautiful backyard. However, with the right lighting, guests can enjoy the beauty of your home and see a finished product. Landscape lighting truly completes the look.

  • Light adds safety and security. Falls are a common source of injury around the home, both indoors and outdoors. Fortunately, landscape lighting is easy to add to all sorts of areas, including stairs, pools, walkways, docks, or any other areas where safety is your main concern. Lighting also provides extra protection for your home to ward off intruders. Homes that are not well-lit are more likely to be targeted by burglars.

  • Lighting sets the mood. Whether you want to give your home a sophisticated, cozy, or inviting feel, exterior lighting can help set the mood.

  • Lighting expands what you can do outside. With the right lighting, you turn a backyard into a nighttime play area for kids or an additional party area for the whole family!

  • You’ll add value to your home. Additions to your home help to increase the property value, and exterior landscape lighting is no exception. Consider adding landscape lighting today to create a new look, provide added safety and security, and increase your home’s value.

How LED Lighting Works—and How It Helps You Cut Costs

You’ve probably heard a lot about LED lighting but wondered if it really offers the cost savings some say it does. Here are some answers to FAQs about LED lighting and how it works.

What is LED lighting?

Short for light emitting diode, LED lighting produces light about 90% more efficiently than the lightbulbs we’ve traditionally used in the past. “An electrical current passes through a microchip, which illuminates the tiny light sources we call LEDS and the result is visible light,” according to EnergyStar.gov.

What are the advantages of using LED lighting?

Using LED lighting instead of incandescent and fluorescent lighting has several advantages. Here are a few of those advantages:

  • They are 300% more efficient than compact fluorescents and 1,000% more efficient than incandescents, so they consume a lot less energy.

  • They have a long life—typically 50,000 hours of use compared with 1,000 for a 60-watt incandescent bulb.

  • With their longer life, they will save you money.

  • They do not contain any dangerous parts.


Are there any disadvantages to LED lighting?

LED lighting tends to be more expensive than traditional lighting, although the extra costs still may work out to long-term savings, due to their longer life. This is why LED lighting is associated with cost savings. 

Where Is LED lighting used?

LED lighting is used in many lighting situations. In fact, if you visit the lighting section of a store, you’ll likely find more LED options than fluorescent or incandescent nowadays. LED lighting also works well for exterior lighting, including landscaping, pool, and dock lighting.
