We’ve recently shared all about the benefits of landscape lighting for your home. It can completely transform your home’s curb appeal. However, we also think it’s important to share how simple landscape lighting has become. In fact, we highly encourage people to install it themselves. If installing lighting intimidates you, it’s time to change the way you look at the process.
Whether you’re concerned about the cost, or unsure about whether or not you can install landscape lighting yourself, we’re here to ease your mind. Many people’s opinions about landscape lighting are based on technology of the past. There are several reasons why landscape lighting has become easier and more attainable than ever.
Here are 4 reasons why landscape lighting has improved and become much simpler.
You don’t have to hire a professional
A basic landscape lighting system can be pretty costly if you have professionals install it. However, our DIY kits range from $1,200 to $2,999, which is a huge savings for premium quality products and materials. Plus, we offer a wide variety of FREE tutorials on our YouTube channel to help you get the job done. So don’t waste your money hiring someone – we are here to step you through the process and guide you throughout the process of installing your own landscaping light successfully.
LEDs make all the difference!
LED lights completely changed the world of low-voltage landscape lighting. Incandescent lamps are truly a thing of the past. LED technology has made the installation process practically “foolproof”. A transformer, some wire and some fixtures is really all there is to it!
With LED lights, you no longer need a lot of different wiring methods like you do for halogen lamps. You also won’t need a greater amount of wire since LED fixtures can be daisy-chained together and still offer equal light output from end to end. LED lights today range in color temperatures too, so the cold, blue tinted lights aren’t your only option anymore.
Repair is easy
In most cases, LED light repairs involve just simply screwing out the old lamps and putting the new ones in. Whereas older lighting systems used to require you to fix a part of a fixture, which was much more time consuming and complicated. So not only has landscape lighting become much easier to install, it’s also much less challenging to repair.
Energy efficiency = saving money!
Last, but definitely not least, LED lighting will make your energy bills go down. So even though LEDs may cost you a bit more upfront, you’ll save money in the long run. Many of our kits even include timers, which can save energy costs as well.
I hope you feel more confident in doing your own landscape lighting projects now. Just be sure not to waste your money on cheap solar lights and box store kits. If you purchase professional quality kits like those that we sell, it will save you money and hassle down the road. As always, we’re here to help assist you with any of your lighting needs.
