Outdoor lighting can transform any property at night by turning trees, houses and other features into major focal points. Outside lighting is also great for lighting up sidewalks and paths for safety reasons. These garden lights can add an attractive appearance to any deck or patio.
Garden lights can include low voltage lighting and solar patio lighting. Low voltage lighting uses 12 volts of electricity versus 120 volts that are used in normal house outlets. These systems do not require an electrician to install them, which makes them an easy choice for many homeowners. Low voltage lighting is not dangerous, and can be worked on while plugged in and turned on. Solar patio lights are very easy to install and many different styles are available. The sun charges a battery located inside these garden lights during the day that powers the lights at night. These solar patio lights require no wiring and are very easy to use. Both low voltage and solar patio lights can be used to illuminate sidewalks, benches, walkways and pools.
Deck lighting is another choice for homeowners when it comes to outdoor lighting. These lights can be installed in decks, wood porches and even balconies. They are installed flush will the surface and can be walked on without causing damage to the light itself. The lights can be put in the floor of decks, on deck rails and steps for safety measures.
Tiki torches are an inexpensive way to get outside lighting. These torches can be used around patios, decks, pools, walkways or to light up any area at night. Tiki torches come in a variety of styles from wood to metal and an array of colors. Wall torches are also available for purchases, which could be used to light up benches.
Another choice for outdoor lighting is using light strands. Light strands come in basic looks or extremely dramatic looks. The lights can be plain, clear lights that have a classy look or a variety of other designs. Other designs include palm trees, flamingos, peppers and an array of other fun designs for decorating an outdoor patio. The strands usually plug in to a regular household outlet and create a unique conversation piece at any party or gathering. Outdoor lighting strands are inexpensive, and can be found online and at many garden supply stores.
Many lights can be used in your landscape that will give it an extra boost of creativity and set it apart from other lawns. These lights can be put in flower beds, trees and around anything you would like lit up at night. Outdoor lights can be used in the tops of trees or at the base of trees to light them up at night. This will draw attention to your beautiful landscape and tall trees at night. While these lights can be fairly expensive compared to other lighting choices, they will last for a long time and will not need to be replaced often.
