By far, the best way to add landscape lighting to your yard is by utilizing and purchasing landscape lighting kits. Why is this? The reason is really easy to understand, as you usually can get a better deal if you buy things in bulk as opposed to buying things separately. A landscape lighting kit comes with everything you could ever need to start making that yard or garden look beautiful by lighting it up!
What exactly does a landscape light kit include? Kits usually include light fixtures, wiring, a transformer, solar lights (or low voltage lights), replacement bulbs, and instructions on how to install the whole thing. The great thing about the kit is that you will have enough wire and enough fixtures to place in multiple locations, and a nice transformer that has a light sensor and manual timers and can operate all of the lights in the kit. If you were to go out and buy all of these components separately, you would probably pay anywhere from $100 to $200 dollars more than you would need to.
Landscape lighting kits can usually be purchased for about $50-$100 dollars, although they do go up in price from there. You can usually pick up a nice kit from your local hardware store like Lowes or Home Depot, or you can also buy landscape lighting kits online from retailers that sell landscape supplies or outside lighting. These kits are safe to install yourself, as the transformer can plug into any wall jack. The transformer allows extremely low level current to flow to the lights which is safe to handle as it will not shock you or cause you any discomfort.
Kits are usually sold in categories of yard or garden size. If you have a large garden, you will buy a larger kit whereas a person with a smaller yard or garden would buy the smaller kit size. The reason for this is that the size of your yard or garden will directly affect the amount of lights you will actually set up in outdoor space.
Landscape lighting kits provide an easy way to beautify your yard or garden with easy to install lighting at a reasonable price. We hope that we have been able to excite you to start realizing your landscape lighting dreams by purchasing a kit to make it all happen!
