Showcase your garden with tasteful and atmospheric lighting
In the case of landscape lighting, less is more. Just a few effective choices can make pathways safe and your yard appealing even after the sun drops down. Plus, you can illuminate key elements – turning a tree cluster, water feature or rocky outcrop into a work of art.
Modern LED technology has redefined outdoor lighting, offering substantial energy savings compared to traditional lighting options and longer-life bulbs. It costs a little more, but LED lighting is a worthwhile investment for main features in the garden and primary paths.

Compared to traditional outdoor lighting, solar LED lights are more flexible and easier to install, requiring no wiring and hence no trenches. Simply stake them into the ground and move them around to your heart’s content.
Place and Plug Lights
Low-voltage "place and plug" outdoor landscape lighting is also safe, simple and relatively inexpensive. Use a spotlight to let a garden feature shine, or line a pathway to enable visitors to safely find their way to the front door. New improved shielded outdoor lighting fixtures also significantly reduce glare to help preserve the beauty of night skies.
