The Basics of Landscape Light Paths

Pathway lights hidden in shrubberyLandscape lights not only provide a safe walkway to and from your home, but they can create a pleasing, warm glow to highlight specific areas of your outdoor arrangement. Wired, low-voltage lights are easy to install and can create a beautiful effect in your yard. Alternatively, more standardized security lights in Jacksonville, FL, may provide the functionality you need to walk safely from your car to the front door.

Line Voltage vs. Low Voltage

When it comes to pathway lighting, low voltage is the more commonly installed variety. Their heavy transformer, thick cable, and attached lights make them easy to distinguish against other lighting options. Line voltage lights require a professional to install and will need their cables buried deep underground.

Purchasing Kits or Individual Lights

When installing yourself, a kit may be the best option. However, when you want to have full freedom over placement and look of your landscape lighting, purchasing the individual parts may be your best bet. Pro Lighting Outdoors is available to install a variety of pathway light options that are sure to boost the appearance and security of your home.
