How Does Landscape Lighting Work?

“How does landscape lighting work?” It’s a question that we’ve been asked countless times. To begin with, you’ll want to learn more about low voltage landscape lighting here!

Once you’ve brushed up on your knowledge of low voltage landscape lighting and understand the different components involved, let’s discuss just how landscape lighting works! 

How Landscape Lighting Works

So, you’ve worked hard to make your house and yard look amazing, but why let that hard work go by the wayside at night?! With the flick of a switch (or without if you have a timer installed) and strategically-placed landscape lights, you can highlight your home’s architectural features and display your prized landscaping in its best light! Most landscape lighting installed today is low voltage. Why? Well, unlike 120-volt systems, low voltage lighting is safer to work with and can be less costly to install. Low voltage lights receive one-tenth of the power (courtesy of a step-down transformer), and yet, there’s no limit to the effects they can achieve when lighting your home!
