If there is one way to dramatically improve the look of your house after the sun goes down, it is through the installation of landscape lighting. This improvement does what the name implies, it illuminates specific points of your house in order to add a dramatic effect, most of the time illuminating portions of the house that have interesting shadowing. Landscape lighting can also be used in order to illuminate pathways and walkways in a way that will allow for people to more easily see the surface they are walking on, ultimately making your pathways in and around your yard safer. Without the addition of landscape lighting to your pathways, people will have a difficult time seeing what they are walking on and judging the distances between uneven surfaces, ultimately creating a tripping risk that is potentially a liable situation. While we are sure that you are not placing your primary concern on whether someone will sue you and are instead concerned about making sure that nobody trips and falls, the illumination of that pathway is the way to protect yourself in both scenarios. Through the installation of either solar or low voltage landscape lighting in your property, you can add beauty and safety to your property at the same time.
Low voltage landscape lighting uses a low current of electricity to power the lights, which are installed at strategic points around your home. The way this is accomplished is through the installation of a power source that the low voltage wire is connected. This wire is then buried along the paths that you would like to illuminate, and lights are then connected to that wire individually. The amount of lights that can be used in a single run of wire is limited, due to the fact that electricity flow is reduced as it moves further from the power source. The limitations on the amount of lights that can be installed in a single run depend on the wattage of those individual lights, how many other lights are using power before them in the run, and how far they are from the power source. Each light will become dimmer as you move further away and add more lights in between, so the run itself will be limited in the capacity. Multiple runs are used for large projects that have a significant amount of lights. The landscape lighting installer will map out how many lights can be installed within your yard, and how many power sources will be necessary to achieve that goal. In some cases, solar lights might be suggested as they have their own power source built in, and can illuminate portions of your yard without being connected to the low voltage run.
The major cost associated with landscape lighting is the materials that are used to make the lights. Cast brass and other materials are specifically chosen to be able to be installed outdoors and withstand the elements for long periods of time.
