Outdoor Lighting & Sound FAQs

The cost of backyard lighting varies based on the size and type of lights, as well as how many lights you need. For small fixtures you should plan to spend between $350-$450 each. You can expect to spend about $450 or more for a big yard light fixture.

So how do I know if I need one? It depends on your vantage point to the area in question, but usually 600-1200 lumens will be enough to light most decks, patios and areas around fences. These are typically spot lights so they don’t illuminate a fairly large surface area like they would inside a house. This is best for accent lighting or highlighting an object.

timer outdoor light is a great investment because the lighting on your property will be far more consistent, and you won’t need to worry about turning it back on. In addition, these lights will often have a lower wattage which means they are less likely to add heat or spike your energy bills.

Outdoor timers usually have two settings- stay lit for a preset amount of time after being turned off and turn off after a preset amount of time has passed while they’re turned on. For example, some outdoor timers may be set for one hour while the lights are on and then automatically shut off. You can also find models that can be set in increments like 5 minutes (125 min).

It’s best to go through recommendations of homeowners who got their lights installed by the landscape lighting company you’re looking into.

If they give trustworthy feedback, read landscape lighting companies reviews and see how happy they are with everyone involved in the process of getting quality landscape lighting installed on their property. As everyone’s needs are different, research if there are certain aspects about each company that will be more favorable than others for you personally. For instance, do they specialize in hardscape services? Do they offer a consultation service? The more details a company has spelled out clearly on their website, the better!

Pool lighting is an important consideration for safety and enjoyment. We have several different options available- from LED lights that fully surround the pool area to focused beams on select seating areas, or even underwater remote controlled LED lights, depending on how you would like your space lit. When considering what type of lighting best suits your needs it’s important to evaluate if safety is a top priority – for nighttime swimming- or if mood-setting is more so what matters most – for entertaining at night.

The cost to install exterior lights in your landscape varies depending on the type of light fixtures you choose, the wattage of the bulbs, and the accessibility of the electrical wiring.

Some homeowners might choose to install low-voltage LED lights, which can be quite affordable. However, if you have a large yard with lots of trees and shrubs, it might be more economical to hire a professional lighting installation company. They will have the experience and expertise to get the job done quickly and efficiently without any costly mistakes.

Before you start, it’s important to decide what you want to achieve with your landscape lighting. Do you want to create a welcoming entranceway for guests? Or would you like to showcase your garden or backyard oasis after dark?

Once you’ve decided on your goal, sketch out a plan of the area you’d like to light. This will help you determine the right placement and types of lights for your project. When doing landscape lighting design, be sure to keep in mind the following:

-Size and shape of the area

-Type of plants and materials in the area

-Location of any structures or features in the area (such as a pond, deck or gazebo)

-Levels of brightness

There are many options when installing landscape lighting, depending on your needs and preferences. Some people prefer to install outdoor lights near the entrance of their home, while others like to light up their garden or patio.

Before installing any lights, it’s important to plan out your design and think about what you want to achieve. Once you have a plan in place, you can start installing your landscape lighting using one of several methods: burying wire in the ground, using stakes and posts, or mounting them on the side of a building.

No matter what type of installation you choose, be sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions closely to avoid any accidents or damage. And always remember to use caution when working with electricity.

There are a few things you’ll need to take into account when setting up an outdoor sound system for pool. For one, you’ll need to make sure the speakers are weatherproof and can withstand the elements. You’ll also need to have an amplifier that is powerful enough to push sound outdoors. If you’re not familiar with electrical wiring and audio equipment, it’s best to call a professional landscape lighting company who can help set everything up for you.
