Bolt Landscape Lighting

Landscape lighting is one of the easiest ways to brighten up your outdoor living space and add safety and curb appeal to your property. Choose low-voltage fixtures that are sized to fit into small spaces. Then, attach them to the tree with galvanized screws. Stainless steel nails are another way to secure the landscape lighting wire.

First, prepare the area where the light fixtures will be installed. Make sure to place them in a level location to ensure they won’t fall or break. Make sure the cable remains above the grass but isn’t buried more than 3 inches. Locate the outdoor electrical outlet near the light fixture. If the light fixture is wired, use wire strippers to remove the insulation. Once the insulation is removed, slide the stripped wires underneath the transformer screws.

You can choose from solar, low-voltage, or line-voltage landscape lights. The solar variety uses a photovoltaic cell to charge, and requires no wiring. The low-voltage type, on the other hand, is powered by a transformer that reduces the voltage to 12-volts. Low-voltage landscape lights are safe to work with, easy to move, and energy-efficient. They are also easy to install and don’t require any wiring experience.

Low-voltage landscape lighting is a great way to add curb appeal and safety to your landscape. They can highlight trees, shrubs, and other prominent features of your landscape. Using low-voltage lights, you don’t have to worry about glaring floodlights and a higher chance of injury to visitors. You can install them yourself if you’re confident enough with your skills.
