LED landscape lighting rules
In the past we would never consider LED (Light Emitting Diode) as an option for landscape lighting. Only halogen bulbs provided the professional look that clients demanded. LED lamps were unreliable and frequently failed shortly after installation.
Now when consumers think of LED, many immediately think of the solar powered LED landscape lighting that are sold at big box retail stores. That lighting is unnatural and underpowered. Additionally the fixtures are frequently plastic or aluminum and are marginal quality which will not stand up over time. This is why they only carry a one-year warranty.
When it comes to professional grade landscape lighting, LED has become the number one choice for professional designers and installers. Reputable outdoor lighting firms only install LED fixtures that are made of solid brass and carry a lifetime warranty.
Let’s take a look at why LED is now the best choice for professional landscape lighting.
