Improve the curb appeal, functionality, security, and beauty of your outdoor areas by installing landscape lighting.

Your licensed Burley professional can customize your outdoor lighting technology and offer advice on which lighting is best suited for the landscape requirements of your home or business. When it comes to landscape lighting, you have two main options that offer a number of benefits in terms of security and presentation.
Low Voltage Landscape Lighting
Just like its name sake, low voltage lighting utilized 120-volts of electricity transforming it into a tiny 12-volt application when used in conjunction with a transformer. One of the biggest advantages of low-voltage landscape lighting is its ability to work safely in moist environments. Unlike line-voltage landscape lighting, low-voltage lighting requires only a minimal amount of submersion under the soil in order to avoid a trip hazard or damage from lawn maintenance. Operating costs are much lower than line-voltage lighting especially when used with a dimmer. Low-voltage bulbs are shock-proof and built for endurance with a standard run time of approximately 6000 hours for MR16 bulbs. The light produced is natural creating a warm glow to add ambiance for outdoor gatherings and party events.
Line Voltage Landscape Lighting
Line voltage landscape lighting uses standard 120-volts of electricity just like the outlets used in your home. It is the perfect choice for commercial business owners who are interested in improving security and visibility but can also be used in residential landscaping for the same reasons. Some of the benefits of Line-voltage landscape lighting include cost; add-on items including dimmers are also less expensive than those used in low-voltage applications. Line-voltage works best in low-use areas and requires professional installation of wiring.
Best Landscape Lighting for Your House
Low voltage lighting is safe for wet outdoor environments and much less expensive to operate than line-voltage landscape lighting and can be used for many of the same purposes when compared to residential and commercial uses. Low-voltage lighting is recommended for residential home owners who are looking for versatility and styling for example recessed lighting, pendant lighting, display lighting, suspended cable lighting, and track and rail lighting along with a vast selection of bulbs, lenses and beams to customize the appearance of outdoor areas.

Line voltage lighting works especially well in commercial applications as it can be extended out over a large area with the use of wires from a centralized power source. Line-voltage is most often used to provide light around a structure or other building and can also be used for residential applications along with commercial businesses for added security.
