The question what is low voltage landscape lighting can be broken down into two parts.
#1- What is Low Voltage Landscape lighting, and #2- What are the benefits I can expect to receive from it?
Landscape lighting is a large and varied family of outdoor lighting fixtures. They are versatile and weatherproof and can be used to illuminate pathways, trees, landscape beds, fences, driveways, stone walls, doorways, and more.
Low voltage landscape lighting systems operate on just 12 or 24 volts, as opposed to 120 volts in a "line voltage" system. They're less expensive, easier to install, safer, and also use much less energy!
One of the benefits of low voltage landscape lighting is the way it makes your house and landscaping beautiful after the sun goes down. You can illuminate certain features and doors of your home, as well as accent trees and other landscape elements, including water features.
Lighting your landscape at night allows you to use your outdoor space after dark. Think about how much more you can maximize your outdoor living if you have nice, soft lighting to accent your patio or deck.
Landscape lighting also provides security for your home at night. Low voltage lighting doesn't rack up your electricity bill, but it gives you the
added protection of not having the darkest home on the street.
Another factor is safety for yourself and guests. Illuminated walkways are much less of a tripping hazard than a dark, poorly lit one. Have you ever had guests over, only to be concerned that they might trip as they are trying to leave at night?
