Fort Lauderdale, FL Landscape Lighting
You work hard and often to make sure that your yard and landscape look as good as possible. So why would you want to let that disappear every single night at sunset? Fort Lauderdale landscape lighting can make sure that your yard and landscape always look as great as possible. When darkness falls, you don’t have to let your hard work fade away. A professional outdoor lighting setup can make your landscape look even better at night, accentuating the aspects of your landscape that are most attractive.

From underlit trees to a subtle light washing over your garden, there are endless options for Fort Lauderdale landscape lighting. And as much as the electrical and mechanical aspects are important, so is the artistry. So our professionals work to make sure both of these factors are at play. Landscape lighting can do a lot for your home and yard, and here are some questions you might have about it before you start your project:

1. Should you hire a professional, or do the job yourself?
This one really depends on the results you’re looking for. It isn’t necessarily too difficult a project to do without an electrician. As a weekend project, you could most likely set up a few lighting fixtures with their own, self-contained power sources. You may even be able to install a transformer to power the fixtures.

For the most stunning design, you’ll want to hire a professional Fort Lauderdale landscape lighting specialist. Our professionals can make sure the design of your lighting installation is a perfect match for your landscape. And you’ll have a permanent and professional installation of the lighting fixtures, which will all have a single power source and be controllable from inside your home.

2. Is it better to pay more for LED lights?
LED light bulbs cost around $40 a piece, about 8 times as much as halogen bulbs. They also often have cool light temperatures, appearing more blue, and you may want to try to find an LED bulb that has a warmer temperature of about 3,000 kelvins. However, LED bulbs won’t need to be replaced before around 40,000 hours of use–which, with regular use, comes to about twenty years. Standard bulbs last about two years on average.

3. What should your Fort Lauderdale landscape lighting design focus on?
There are three things you want to remember when working on the design of your Fort Lauderdale landscape lighting: safety, security, and sophistication. You’ll want to make sure the electrical work is done perfectly to avoid any hazards. And the design of your setup should help to light areas near entryways, porches, and patios. But it can also help you achieve a more aesthetic goal. Lighting trees, pieces of artwork, stone paths, or a bench can help your Fort Lauderdale landscape design be an excellent addition to your home.
