Are LED landscape lights more cost effective than halogen lights?
The initial investment for LED bulbs is greater than halogen bulbs. However, in terms of energy usage, LED bulbs are much more energy efficient than halogen bulbs and last up to 80% longer. Thus, the overall costs of LED bulbs are less over time.
Will the lighting installation process effect my plants?
No. Our team members will lay out the wires in a manner that will not cause any detrimental effects to landscape plants. The wires will be buried by hand and covered to ensure they are not visible in the landscape. On occasion, it will be necessary to prune existing landscape plantings to ensure the best light can be viewed. A team member will talk with you prior to pruning any plant or tree for lighting effect.
What is the transformer and how does it work?
The transformer is plugged into an existing 120V outlet on the property. The transformer converts the 120V to 12V of electricity that is used for the low voltage lights. All of the low voltage landscape lights are wired to the transformer. The transformer is a grounded unit, which provides additional protection to the lighting system and electric service.
