What is Landscape Lighting?

Landscape Lighting is often an afterthought to a well thought out Landscaping plan, but when installed correctly this relatively inexpensive addition allows you to enjoy the view of your landscaped property well after night fall.  Unlike indoor lighting, which often accentuates the lighting fixture, Landscape Lights are meant to blend in and rather show off aspects of the environment they are installed in.  Landscape lighting can highlight the appeal of your home, provide safety lighting for paths and poorly lit areas, or just provide a gentle glow for some of your most prized plantscape areas.  A well thought out Lighting Scheme can also enhance a winter settings found in Canada.  Virtually all Landscape Lighting installed today is low voltage using very little power and very easy and safe to install. 

Why do we sell Landscape Lighting?  Although Landscape Lighting is often installed on its own, professional landscapers will often plan and install Lighting along side Irrigation to make use of Trenching to provide easy underground pathways for the Lighting Installation.  All of our Lighting Supplies ship from Canada free of charge with orders of $150 or more.
