Nowadays, we have options to choose from with regards to outdoor lighting. They come in different styles and sizes and the best part is that they can be easily installed. Apart from that, they don’t necessarily have to break your bank account. With outdoor lighting, people generally go for subtle effects, “less is more” so to speak, because subtle effects are actually more pleasing than very bright illumination.
So, what are the choices?
The solar lights are best used to produce soft , subtle lighting, no wiring required, just push the fixtures into the ground. Ensure that you install them in a sunny location for them to function properly. Solar panels charge one or more 1.2 volt batteries to run the lights at night.
Low voltage lights are functional as they light pathways and can accentuate plants and trees. They come in a variety of styles and sizes. Installation is easy, in fact, they can even be connected to your home security system.
120-volt lights have strong light output. They are not widely available and the variety is limited both in style and size, most of them come with an industrial look. Because of the strong light, they are best used in providing security and safety.
