3 Types of Lighting Fixtures for Your Garden

Brighten up your outdoor area with these must-haves

Proper lighting can do wonders for your outdoor area. Aside from enhancing the beauty of your garden, lanai, or balcony—it also allows you to move freely in a well-lit area.

If you're thinking of adding new lights to your space, here are three outdoor lighting options that you may want to consider.

Low voltage lighting

Opt for low voltage lighting to enhance and illuminate your flower beds, succulents, or fences! It comes in different stylish fixtures that are easy to install. These pieces are safe and can be done as a DIY project, too!

Simply plug your chosen fixture into a standard outlet to reduce the household current from 120-12 volts. Cables used in landscape lighting are specifically made for burial underground.

Hardwired lighting

Just like the power voltage in your home, hardwired lighting is a permanent lighting that uses a 120-volt electrical system. If you want a sturdy or stable fixture, then you might consider installing hardwired lighting in your garden or driveway.

However, since it uses a much stronger voltage than low voltage lighting, you would need professional help when installing these fixtures to ensure safety. Once you've installed such fixtures, it is deemed permanent and might be difficult to move to another location.

Solar powered lighting

If you are planning to build an environment-friendly home, consider installing solar powered lighting fixtures. Simply place a solar panel on your roof or in any area of your home which receives sunlight.

What we love most about solar lighting is it does not require wires. However, the brightness of solar powered fixtures decreases overtime. Make sure you purchase a quality piece and invest on a fixture that suits your needs by doing extensive research and consulting with a professional.
