Improvements to your home can be very costly, and generally when you make improvements that are designed to look more appealing, you are trying to get as much bang for your buck as possible. Something like a new kitchen can cost more than 25 thousand dollars and while it is certainly nice, it may not add that much money to the value of your home. This is why smart home owners discriminate with how they spend their budgets, seeking ways to create dramatic improvements for the smallest outlay of money. In this regard, the installation of landscape lighting is one of the single best investments you can make, providing a dramatic effect that can be seen from the street while not breaking the bank at the same time. The improvement of existing landscape lighting in order to create a brighter display or a more dramatic layout, as well as the installation of landscape lighting fixtures in strategic parts of your yard can achieve a look that is unmatched with regards to visual power. It can also make your home safer by illuminating pathways and walking areas that posed a tripping hazard in the past. By installing landscape lighting, your home will be safer and more beautiful at the same time, and it can be done for a fraction of what that kitchen costs to install.
Landscape lighting is low voltage, meaning that the power lines that are buried in your yard do not carry enough electricity to harm children or animals that may come into contact with it. The design of the wiring as well as the fixtures allows for illumination of specialized bulbs that will provide a good amount of light while using little electricity to do it. Even though the wattage is low, there are still limitations to the amount of fixtures that can be installed on a single run. This is because electricity deteriorates over distances, and will not be able to power the lamps that are far distances away from the source if there is a drain on that load. For this reason, landscape professionals will limit the amount of fixtures on a single run of wire to a specific amount that will allow the final light in the line to be as bright as the first. If there are more fixtures necessary, more lines of wire will be run from the power source. In large installations, several power boxes may be necessary in order to adequately power all the lights that are installed. Your landscape artist will lay out the plan and then determine how many power line runs are necessary to accomplish the goals. In the end, you will have a dramatic display that beautifies your home in a way that also provides safety and security for those that live inside.
