LED Garden Lights

11 Jun

Homeowners who are planning their outdoor lighting system often turn to light-emitting diode or LED garden lights because of their longevity. LED lights typically last up to 40,000 lamp hours, which can equate to 20 years in some cases. These lights also use less energy than other light bulbs.

One of the best uses of LED lights in the garden is with water features. Lighting water features such as ponds and fountains creates a dramatic and beautiful scene at night. It is also important that safety be considered when adding lighting to any type of water feature to prevent the risk of electrocution. Traditionally, halogen lighting was used in under water applications and worked well.

However, halogen lighting does not last forever and when the lighting fails and needs replaced the water has to be drained if the lighting is underneath the water. It is not safe to go into the water to change the bulb because the wiring is still live even if the bulb has burned out. However, LED garden lights used under water last many, many years before having to be changed.
LED garden lights can be used to create a seemingly endless rainbow of colors or simply dramatic white light. There are over sixteen millions color combinations that landscape lighting designers can create by simply using varying amounts of red, green and blue. The lighting underneath the water can be a rainbow of colors with white light dancing on top of the water with the use of LED spotlights installed around the edges of the pond.

Water features are not the only place in the garden that can be enhanced with LED lights. These lights can be used to light up pathway stones and create amazing effects that bring inanimate objects to life through the use of light that appears to be mystical.

LED lights are perfect for the garden and the homeowner. They provide low level lighting that is cost efficient in both the power that the lights consume and the longevity of the light bulbs. Homeowners can install these lights and enjoy them for years before they need to have the bulbs replaced.
