Landscaping lighting is among the easiest and most energy efficient ways to brighten and beautify your property. The ability to effectively use low voltage or solar lighting in order to enhance your property means that youre seeing not only a more beautiful outdoor area but also one that is eco-friendly and a green living alternative. Outdoors becomes softer more subtle and infinitely more beautiful when enhanced with low voltage or solar landscaping lighting. With the evolution of lighting technology over the years the low voltage lighting technology has come to enjoy excellent regards and popularity when it comes to aspects of outdoor lighting.
Line voltage lighting systems run on the same power which runs your house (120 volts) and therefore requires the expertise of an electrical contractor to install. In some cases local permits may be required for installation. 120v wires must be buried 18 inches underground or placed in a protective conduit and all fixtures and connectors must be completely waterproof. Due to these requirements 120v systems are relatively permanent once they are installed. Their lamps and fixtures are larger as well as being higher wattage and produce high light levels. This is beneficial for brightly lit parking lots but less so in residential gardens. For this reason line voltage systems are better suited to large-scale commercial and institutional applications.

All you do is attach a fixture or solar panel where it will receive direct or indirect sunlight. Some solar lights come with a solar panel that is attached with a wire; these are usually spot lights or uplights that highlight an area that is usually sitting in darkness most of the time. You position the light on a tree or some other object to be highlighted and the solar panel needs to be inserted in an area that receives sunlight to absorb the suns energy. There are some solar lights that are recessed for placing in decks and others for placing on posts or railings; these will need a screwdriver for installation.
