Create an Outdoor Resort in your Backyard

Creating a beautiful landscape does not have to be expensive. A few well-placed low-voltage path or accent lights can have a huge impact. Here are a few things to keep in mind:  
  •  No lawn is too small. Even modest homes or those with limited yards or gardens can benefit.

  • Low-voltage outdoor lighting is inexpensive, safe and relatively easy to install. A handy homeowner can put in a low-voltage lighting system over a weekend. All you need are basic tools, a transformer (to reduce standard 120-volt household current to the safe 12-volt level), outdoor low-voltage copper cable and low-voltage light fixtures.
  • It is not necessary to do everything at once. For your initial project, install a transformer that is larger than required, because it will only consume the amount of electricity being used. The larger capacity transformer will already be in place when you install additional fixtures.
  • Buy well-constructed fixtures. They will last decades longer than cheap fixtures.
  • Remember that a little light goes a long way outdoors. For example, a 50- to 60-foot pathway can be adequately illuminated with three to four high-quality lights.
  • Save electricity by using a timer or photo cell. A photocell automatically turns the lights off and on when it becomes light or dark outside.
