LED’s – Energy Efficient and Environmentally Friendly Long Term Cost Savings – LEDS on average use 75% less energy than traditional incandescent or halogen bulbs. Have More Fixtures and Use Less Power – LED transformers are smaller so they use less power and are designed to allow for 4 to 5 times more fixtures per run. LEDS offer 40,000 to 50,000 hours average life compared to 2,000 hours for a regular halogen bulb. Not having to replace halogen light bulbs frequently will save you both time and money. Environmentally Friendly – LEDS are mercury free. There’s no better place than your own backyard for relaxing, entertaining and enjoying the outdoors. If you’re looking to upgrade a humdrum yard into something special, here are some things to consider.
Trees and awnings aren’t just great adornments for your yard; they provide much needed shade for you to sit outdoors comfortably and safely. Avoid summer mosquito bites by placing birdbaths and other standing water structures far from lounging and eating areas. Install LED yard lighting for night, which is less likely to attract mosquitoes than incandescent lights.
When planning your space, make safety a top priority. Since evenings are prime-time for summer entertaining, lighting is an essential safety measure. Start by considering where you need to increase visibility. Choose post-mounted lanterns near driveways and wall-mounted lanterns next to doors for ease of access and to welcome guests. For stairs or terraced paths, don’t forget step lights to aid in navigation.
Your yard is an extension of your home, so don’t let design and style fall by the wayside when planning its look. For a touch of natural beauty, consider planting a flower garden to attract butterflies and humming birds. The interplay of light and shadow adds magic to the night. By carefully placing accent lights at upward or downward angles and using wall wash lighting, you can silhouette trees and direct shadows.
