Your Guide to LED Landscape Lighting
LED lighting has been all the rage for a couple of years now. It’s an energy-efficient and lucrative lighting option that allows you to enhance your property and illuminate it.
LED landscape lighting is also particularly popular among homeowners. Here’s all you need to know about this form of landscape lighting.
Things to Consider When Choosing LED Landscape Lighting Fixtures
So, how do you choose LED landscape lighting fixtures for your property? There are a couple of things to keep in mind.
First of all, consider the color temperature and the luminosity you want. The latter refers to the brightness level, whereas the color temperature represents how “cool” or “warm” the light appears. Think of the effect you want to create before deciding on the color temperature and luminosity. For instance, do you want to subtly accentuate certain spots by using dramatic lighting, or would you rather use the full force of LED lighting to illuminate your landscape?
Secondly, identify the areas you want to highlight or illuminate. For instance, do you want outdoor lighting for your lawn, or do you just want to highlight the pathway? The areas or features you want to highlight will also help you determine the luminosity and color temperature required.
Make sure you don’t overdo the lighting by adding too many fixtures. There should always be a balance. You don’t want your landscape to sparkle in the middle of the night and annoy the neighbors!
Types of LED Landscape Lighting Fixtures
LED lighting comes in several shapes, sizes, and forms. The most popular fixtures include:
· Pathway lights: used for highlighting the walkway or pathway
· Accent lights: used for accentuating architectural details
· Floodlights: used for illuminating larger areas, such as the lawn or the poolside
· Inground lights: used for illuminating structures such as trees by creating an upward light effect
LED Lighting Cost & Maintenance
One of the main reasons for LED lighting’s popularity is that the fixtures require little to no maintenance. All you need to do is replace the lights when they eventually burn out. Most LED fixtures can last up to 50,000 hours, which means that you won’t have to replace them anytime soon.
This makes LED lighting the perfect option for landscape lighting as you’ll only be using it during the night and can continue using them for a long time. Thus LED lighting is low-maintenance and cost-effective.
