Landscape Lighting Guide

Landscape lighting can enhance your outdoor space, provide increased security and add value to your home. Start by learning the possibilities and begin planning and placing landscape lighting to accent your property and highlight your home. Here are some key questions to ask yourself during planning:

- What do you love most about your yard?

- How and when are you planning to use your outdoor spaces?

- Is there a special architectural structure or feature you want to highlight?

- When and where is security lighting most important?

Before learning the more technical details of landscape lighting, its helpful to first understand the different landscape fixture and transformer options. Shoppers Lighting provides a wide array of landscape lights and each have their own place in your project and a unique ability to light your outdoor space.

Low Voltage Transformer for Landscape Lighting

Consider purchasing a transformer that has voltage capability greater than your initial needs to ensure that any additional landscape lights can be added easily at a later date. Voltage drop causes unevenly lit fixtures and premature bulb burnout so plan ahead.
