Whether it may have been torches or lanterns powered by whale oil or gas, people have been illuminating lawns, plant life, pathways and homes for safety, security, aesthetic and other reasons.
Thanks to electrical power, landscape lighting became safer, more versatile and easier to control.
Technological advances make controlling the lighting so much easier and the variety of fixtures and mountings makes the possibilities virtually endless.
LED bulbs have changed the lighting landscape all together.
- Are several times more efficient than incandescent bulbs.
- Are much longer lasting than incandescent, CFL (compact fluorescent) and halogen.
- Most, are compatible with traditional light bulb screw-in sockets.
- Can provide different types of light - cool white, neutral white and warm white - not simply, bright, brighter, brightest.
With the holidays upon us or simply for festive occasions and other seasonal holidays, there are a variety of colors to choose from.
Or, there are color changing lights if you wish to get creative and add some effects along with a little drama to highlight one or a few features of your home or landscape.
