One great idea for home owners to consider is adding LED lights to the yard. This not only enhances the natural beauty of the gardens, it helps with safety and increases the security of your yard. Another huge benefit to using LED Lights for this situation is the enormous costs savings in energy due to LED’s renowned energy efficiency.
One of the characteristics of LED Bulbs is that they emit one colour so they are perfect if you want to use a variety of colours to extend your decorative choices. Other lights emit white light which is then given a particular color by the shading of the bulb, which is very inefficient as far as energy is considered.
Other ideas to consider are up-lighting to create a soft romantic feel to an area or
down-lighting when you wish to highlight an area for a dramatic effect.
You could also consider silhouette lighting and provide light behind an object such as a fountain and combine the silhouette lighting with a direct light in a different colour for a beautiful contrast
The only thing holding you back is your own imagination, so think of different colours washes and different effects and do not be held back by the energy costs to light your own personal Eden, as the lights light up for just pennies.
And remember LED lights are tough, there is no filament to burn out so they last up to thirty years. They come in various sizes, so you could use them in places that were impossible just a few years ago.
Spring is coming and now is a perfect time to spruce up your yard by adding LED Landscaping Lights.
