Tips on Landscape Lighting from Sonoran Gardens
For years, Sonoran Gardens Landscape Design & Construction has been receiving questions about LED landscape lighting. Our response has always been that the technology wasn’t quite there yet. Outdoor lighting should provide soft and subtle highlights not a florescent impersonation of a UFO landing in your front yard. I always say that landscape lighting is the feature that brings a yard from great to WOW! But LED lights just didn’t cut it. I am so excited to say that is no longer the case!FX Luminaire has created a line of LED lights that are not only attractive on the exterior, but also project the type of lighting suitable for a landscape, all while maintaining the benefits of LED. Their light fixtures come with unique color filters that can be used to get the perfect illumination. So why use LED?
- Energy Efficiency: LED lights require + 80% less voltage than halogen based lights, which equates to lower energy costs and longer fixture life.
- Heat Reduction: Lower voltage means less heat. Less heat is safer and also attributes to longer life.
- Life Span: Did I mention LED lights last longer? LED lights can last 50,000 hours or more!
