Outdoor landscape lights are a perfect way to help highlight your property at night. When installed correctly, outdoor landscape lights can add elegance to your landscape by showcasing focal points in your home. Outdoor landscape lights can also help tie your landscape in with your entryways. Landscape lights are also a great way to highlight your walkways.
There are two types of outdoor landscape lights that you can use in your landscape project: low voltage and solar. Solar lights do not offer the brightness or reliability that low voltage lights do. You will often find them having a duller look when compared to low voltage lights. There are a few advantages of using solar lights over low voltage lights. Firstly, installation of solar lights is easy. It does not require wiring because the units have self-contained power from batteries. Secondly, the cost is much lower because of the low-quality lights and lack of installation needed.
