LED Landscape Lighting

Posted on January 8th, 2009 by Andy

Outdoor landscape lighting has many benefits. A well-designed landscape lighting plan will increase the aesthetic appearance of your home and garden and highlight the features of your property. Landscape lighting expands your living space by allowing you to enjoy your outdoor environment after dark. It also improves the safety of your home or business.

For years the only choice for landscape lighting was incandescent or low-voltage halogen. More recently, LED landscape lighting has become a viable and cost-effective option for outdoor lighting.

LED landscape lighting has several advantages over traditional outdoor lighting options:

1. Longevity. LED outdoor lighting has a useful life of up to 100,000 hours. If you operated your LED landscape lights for an average of 8 hours each night year-round the lights would last for 30 years or more. This means that you can enjoy your outdoor lighting rather than having to spend countless hours changing damaged or burned out bulbs. Traditional halogen replacement bulbs are also expensive so you will save a significant amount of money over the lifetime of the lights.

2. Energy-Efficiency. LED landscape lights are 80% more efficient than traditional outdoor lighting solutions. Over the long life of the LED light this will translate into substantial cost savings. Utilizing an energy efficient lighting option is also the sustainable and environmentally responsible choice.

3. More Lighting Options. Because of the size and longevity of the LED light, several luminaire designs are available that simply were not possible with traditional landscape lighting.

4. The Green Choice. Because of its super-efficiency and long-lasting bulbs, LED landscape lighting has much less of an impact on the environment than traditional outdoor lighting options. You’ll use less energy and create less waste.
