LED lights have come a very long way. Almost any fixture can accept a led bulb. Now you can even choose between warm white and cool white for your led bulbs, and they now will melt the snow around the fixture so your lights will be seen in the winter.
Up lights and down lights are the 2 most popular forms of landscape lighting. Up lighting is used for trees, structures, and architecture. Down lighting is used for lighting statues, tables,pathways, and driveways.
Moon lights are used to cast tree branch shadows on the ground to mimic moon light. This has a dramatic effect on any landscape. It is best to pick an area like the patio, deck, water feature or parking area for moon lights.
Path lights are used to light path ways, bed lines, and water features. Unlike other landscape lights these fixtures are the landscape lighting fixture that you will always be able to see. that is why there are so many different models.
Water lights are used to light ponds, waterfalls, pools, and fountains anywhere in the water, or very close to splash range of water, it is necessary to use water lights. Water feature water lights can even be disguised as a rock to fit into your water feature.
Deck lightis are used to light decks, pergolas, steps, and address posts. These lights can be recessed into the surface or mounted to down light the structure. there are even clip lights that mount under the cap stone of your patio retention wall.
Ground lights recess into driveways, patios, and sidewalks. If you want your driveway lit up and there are no trees to down light it from, then these lights are the best option. They can be recessed into the brick, concrete, or black top.
Fiber optic lights are used in water features and especially pools. Fiber optic lights have many colors, and some systems even change colors. These lights are great around water because there is no electricity in the water to run them.

At Allscape we can design, install, repair, and maintain, any low voltage lighting system. Our service techs are familiar with LED landscape lighting, Halogen landscape lighting, Fiber optic landscape lighting, and Laser landscape lighting. We also have the ability to convert any lighting system to LED lighting which drastically reduces power usage.
The main differences in lighting products is that halogen lighting is cheaper to install, but uses more power and bulbs usually last 1 to 3 years. LED lighting is more expensive to install, but uses less power and bulbs usually last 5 to 9 years which is definitely less expensive over time. Fiber optic lighting is specialty lighting mostly used on water features and pools. Laser lighting is specialty lighting mostly used in and around party areas.
When we design and install landscape lighting using a combination of lighting techniques, like Architectural lighting, Deck lighting, Patio lighting, Moon lighting, Path lighting and Water lighting. Our main goal is to build an outdoor lighting system that creates symmetry, and security.
How much does landscape lighting cost?
For high quality solid copper or brass fixtures, the transformer cable, waterproof wire connections, and labor to install about $200.00 a light for halogen with a 5 year warranty on the fixture, $250.00 a light for interchangeable LED fixtures with a 5 year warranty on the fixture and bulb, and $300.00 a light for a Kitchler potted light with a 15 year warranty on the fixture and bulb.
Is led lighting better than halogen?
Yes, Led lighting has more color options, uses 7 times less electricity, and the bulbs last 5 times as long halogen bulbs.
Are hardware store lights any good?
The more expensive hardware store lights are ok but the alligator clips that are meant to do the electrical connections are garbage. You need to cut them off and use silacone filled wire caps to make all electrical connections.
How long do bulbs last?
Halogen bulbs last about 1 year. Led bulbs last about 5 years. Kichler has a Led potted fixture that they guarantee the fixture and the bulb to last for 15 years.
