The highlight of your home’s landscaping can literally be the lights if you do it right. With good landscape lighting, you can dramatically increase your home’s curb appeal, make dimly-lit walkways safer, and otherwise add some flair to your property. If you are thinking about improving your home with landscape lighting, then you should look no further than the latest and greatest technology to do it: LED lights.
Benefits of LED Lighting
In the past, some homeowners’ or commercial property controllers were hesitant to add extensive landscape lighting due to technical limitations and safety concerns. Large landscape lightbulbs that use a string of filament to burn – or an incandescent bulb for the scientifically-inclined – can be problematic. They can be quite fragile and prone to breaking if mishandled, do not cast a clear, crisp light, may appear to discolor nearby objects in its glow, and can also overheat. All in all, incandescent bulbs of that size have room for improvement.
With LED light fixtures gaining in popularity, all of those troubles with incandescent bulbs can be forgotten. Yes, the future is bright when it comes to LED landscape lighting.
Here are a few reasons why homeowners love LED landscape lighting for their yards, gardens, and grounds:
- Durability and resistance to weathering and wear-and-tear.
- Bright, clean white light that eliminated deep shadows.
- Color customization to add personality to a home or structure.
- Long-lasting – save big on replacement costs.
You will also be happy to know that LED lights are economically and environmentally friendly. Most models and makes of LED light fixtures for outdoor landscaping are more energy efficient than comparable incandescent lights. This translates to lower electricity demands on the grid and lower utility bills in your mailbox. A true win-win scenario is possible with LED landscape lighting.
