Types of Landscape Lighting:
1. Accent Lighting:
Focusing and directing light at objects or areas of interest to enhance and highlight their look.
Intense light that can be seen from a far distance. In the context of landscape lighting, it is often used to signal the status of a building such as airports and lighthouses.
Accent lights placed in-grade to highlight walkways, steps or areas around pools.
4. Mini Flood/Wall Washer:
Small, intense lights used to highlight trees or accent features on walls or buildings.
5. Path Lighting:
Small bollards that help light pathways while adding great esthetic look.
6. Step Lighting:
Low voltage lighting that is used to accent and beautify stairs or steps.
In-grade lighting that is rated for applications in or under water. Pools, waterfalls and ponds are the main application.
Top Concerns or Challenges
1.) Quality and Versatility
Traditional incandescent products are not energy efficient, have poor bulb life, and are limited in color temperatures.
2.) Cost & Complexity
Higher-end LED systems can be expensive and require programming and detailed design.
Low cost products can be great at first but generally only last a year or two before they become damaged, corroded, or no longer function.
4.) Constant Maintenance
Landscape lighting products require annual maintenance to keep the system looking great.
With the variety of products, any look or scene is achievable.
2.) LED Products
LED products are long lasting and energy efficient. To learn more about LEDs, read our LED Buying Guide.
3.) Advanced Systems
LED products are designed to permit colour change and respond to audio inputs.
4.) Price Flexibility
Products are available at various price points but remember not to sacrifice quality for cost!
