When the sun goes down do you run back inside? Are you still a little afraid of the dark? Invest in some low voltage lighting on the patio and in the garden to extend your hours of outdoor living this season.
Low voltage lighting is different because it can be installed without an electrician. It can also be adjusted while the system is up and running, providing safety and convenience. Lights come in a variety of styles and sizes, ranging from contemporary to retro.
The beauty of landscape lights is that for a minimal investment you can multiply the potential enjoyment of your yard. Imagine romantic dinners on the patio under low voltage lighting – it’s better and easier than candlelight. Inset lights can be built right into a pergola or arbor, allowing you to place the spotlight anywhere you want.
Want to keep the garden’s focal point in sight long after sunset? Low voltage lighting is just the thing. Indirect lights will illuminate unique plants, sculpted shrubs or artsy fountains. Whatever it is you want to gaze at, you can do it longer with landscape lighting.
Look for reasonably priced sets at the local home improvement stores. For a higher quality system that hasn’t saturated the neighborhood check out what the landscape contractors or lighting dealers have to offer. You may pay more, but they will come with a more extensive warranty and be of stronger construction.
Don’t forget that landscape lights make the yard safer. Pathways and stairs will be lit up and BBQ areas and patio sets brought into the light. No matter how much you quiver when darkness falls, you’ll have no excuse with low voltage landscape lighting.
These lights will keep the party going strong.
