There are 3 types of outdoor lighting that add value as well as beauty to your property.

  1. Compact Ledge Lighting — so that you can be safe and save money.
  2. Elegant Wall Wash Lighting — so that you can enjoy both the beauty and function of recessed lighting.
  3. In-Grade Fixture Lighting — so that you can enhance your property’s aesthetic appeal while maximizing both durability and versatility.

Each of these types of outdoor lighting are equally stunning, and you can use them individually or mix, match, and incorporate all of them to transform your outdoor space.

Benefits of These 3 Types of Outdoor Lighting

Outdoor lighting creates focal points around your property. You can use it to enhance the beauty of your yard, architectural features of your home, your patio, pool, and/or garden plantings. For example, you can use in-grade fixtures to highlight trees and plantings in flower beds.

Lighting paths and walkways helps keep your family and guests safe, too. Adding ledge lighting to the walls of your walkway also can bring a touch of drama to your landscape.

Finally, spotlighting specific elements of your landscape or exterior accents of your house with wall wash lighting adds curb appeal and can enhance the overall value of your property.

Imagine the peaceful feeling of looking out your window to a yard that is softly lit rather than pitch black. Think of how safe and welcomed you’ll feel coming home at night to a property that is elegantly lit all around.

Even better, these 3 types of outdoor lighting won’t break the bank. They’re budget-friendly!

Purposes of Outdoor Lighting

Lighting in your yard can serve many purposes. For example, in addition to allowing you to enjoy the beauty of your yard at night, outdoor lighting enhances safety and security, allows for nighttime tasks and activities, showcases your personal style and creativity, and adds function as well as drama to your landscape.

Tips for Keeping Outdoor Lighting Affordable

When incorporating landscape lighting into your outdoor space, consider these strategies to keep it affordable:

  • Strategize Your Design. Assess your outdoor area’s layout and pinpoint focal points for illumination. Strategic planning ensures you achieve your desired lighting effects without exceeding your budget.
  • Opt for Efficiency. Embrace energy-saving solutions like LED bulbs and solar-powered lights to reduce long-term energy expenses while illuminating your landscape beautifully.
  • Embrace Layered Illumination. Add depth and ambiance to your outdoor environment by employing a mix of lighting techniques, including uplighting, downlighting, and accent lighting.
  • Prioritize Quality. While seeking cost-effective options, prioritize fixtures that offer durability and weather resistance, ensuring your investment stands the test of time.

Advantages of LED-based Landscape Lighting

LED-based landscape lights provide both a number of distinct efficient and practical advantages. In addition to cost-saving energy efficiency, LED lights also are a way to practice great environmental stewardship.

Halogen based lights can take anywhere between 10 and 50 watts of power each, sometimes more. LED fixtures, on the other hand, use roughly 80% less voltage. So  you get lower energy costs, longer lamp life, and the satisfaction of better environmental citizenship.
