Landscape Lighting

Types of Landscape Lighting

There are three types of outdoor lighting:

Solar Landscape Lighting

Solar lights are really easy to install. Just push them into the ground. You have to make sure the solar panel gets good sun. The more sun, the longer and brighter the light will glow at night. If you want to move it, just pull it up and push it in somewhere else.

Disadvantage: Even the best solar lights are not very bright. They are ornamental, but are unlikely to be bright enough for safety or security.

Low Voltage Landscape Lighting

Low voltage landscape lighting uses is safe to work with and easy to install. You can move it pretty easily.

Most low voltage landscape lighting uses 12 volts. Some uses 24 volts. Just add up the wattage of the lights you are putting in and order a transformer that exceeds that number. Buy enough wire to connect all of the lights to the transformer. The transformer is plugged into an outlet.

With new energy efficient options, low voltage landscape lighting is less expensive than ever.

Disadvantage: There may be voltage drop if you travel too far from the transformer. That means the distant lights will be a little less bright.

Line Voltage Landscape Lighting

Line Voltage Landscape Lighting uses 120 volts, the same voltage as the wiring in your home. It may require permits, inspections and a qualified electrician to install. Once it is installed, it is as permanent as the wiring in your home. You can move it, but not easily.

The wire is hardwired from your breaker box. Buried conduit protects the wires from the house to each light.

Disadvantage: This is not an easy do-it-yourself project.
