Landscape lighting enhances the beauty of your home, allows you to use your outdoor spaces after dark and increase your home’s selling value, while providing safety and security.
Low-voltage lighting creates ambiance, warmth, and beauty, subtly highlighting the features of your home or business, and enhances the look of your landscape. The difference is surprisingly dramatic.

Why not use solar lights?
Although solar lights sound great in theory, we don’t recommend them at this time. Compared to incandescent, halogen, and LED bulbs, solar lights provide a poor quality of light (i.e., color), they lack adequate brightness, and they rarely store enough energy to continue shining through the entire night. Additionally, the fixtures tend to have a short lifespan due to poor construction, and they lack directional capability. The only benefits are inexpensive fixtures and zero operational costs. But considering their poor performance, we recommend you don’t waste your money on today’s solar landscape lights.
Do you recommend LED lights?
Absolutely. Do be aware, however, that not all LED bulbs and fixtures are created equally. In a rush to capture the LED market, many companies rolled out shoddy products that aren’t living up to their claims. Additionally, cheaper LED lights have poor light quality, which can be seen in the form of a blue coloration. We highly recommend CAST Lighting’s LED line for its warm light quality, ease of installation, cutting-edge technology and outstanding warranty. Initial costs to install an LED system are higher than a halogen system, but with the ultra-low operating costs, an upgrade pays for itself.
Do I need a permit?
Each municipality holds different requirements for electrical work. Please check with your local officials for more information.
