The types of Landscape Lights
Path Lights — These are small lights that follow a designated walkway. This makes it easy to ensure that no one steps on your fancy yard work while also making it easier to walk there at night!
Deck Lights — If you have a deck or a patio these are great to outline the surrounding area. This keeps critters at bay as well as maintain good mood lighting.
Flood Lights — Flood Lights are one of the best criminal deterrents you can invest in. Flood Lights pop a ton of attention when attached to a motion sensor.
SpotLight — A flood light but manually controlled. Ideal for holiday lighting.
The Different Types of Light
Incandescent — These are superheated coils in a glass bulb, often creating a dull, yellow hue which can be used for a rustic look.
Fluorescent — These can often last up to 35k hours and are sending an electrical discharge through ionized gasses. This creates a brighter, whiter light.
LED — The most common type of landscape lighting. These can look like fluorescent lights except they are easier to manage and can be altered to change hue.
UV — If you want to add some positive effects to your lighting try UV. This will help create a natural, Sunlight effect on your lawn and can help your plants grow!
