Choose Your Lights
Landscape lighting can add a high-end look to your home, and makes it safer too. The first step is to choose your lighting. There are many types of lights and fixtures to choose from. Outdoor spotlights can highlight specific features, while floodlights can illuminate a wide area. Driveway lights help guests looking for your home know where to turn at night.
You can decide what type of lights you want in which areas with a flashlight. At night, use a flashlight with the ability to switch between spot and flood mode to see how different lighting styles look in different areas.
Types of Lights
There are two ways to power your outdoor lighting. Solar-powered lighting is easy to install and has no wiring. Or, the type we are installing today is low-voltage lighting, which plugs into any outdoor GCFI outlet and works great as a decorative touch or to illuminate a path. We are using a lighting kit that comes with all the necessary components, but if you are building your own or adding to an existing kit, remember to choose a finish that matches.
Place the Lights
Make sure lights are placed for lighting coverage and access to electrical power.
Before beginning any excavation, check for underground utilities. Call the North America One Call Referral Service (just dial 811) for a national directory of utility companies.
Install the Lights
Once installed, test your lights before covering the trench.
