Home Garden Lighting

Home garden lighting may seem complicated during the initial search so we really have been working to keep it simple. As needs or questions about how to buy garden lights or how to install outdoor lighting we are available to help out. Because the market for landscape lighting is so broad, we designed our site with a very simple selection of high quality step lights, path lights, deck lights and path lights.

We have a line of garden led lights made of the same high quality copper and brass as the halogen lights; however LEDs are 80% more efficient. One thing that is overwhelming when searching for landscape lights is the never-ending selection. Plastic, aluminum, brass, or copper, up lights, well lights, wall lights, etc. and on and on.

If you really want a quality system to highlight your landscape and beautify your architectural features (and add safety), you can do a great job with just a few simple tips.

1. Select copper or brass fixtures - non-corrosive and usually has a lifetime warranty
2. Most designs require three types of fixtures: path lights, spot lights and step or deck lights
3. Know your desired effect - select the best type for the job (decorative garden lighting may not always give you the light you desire)

Happy Lighting!!!

Installing LED MR 16 Bulbs

I'm having great success with my new MR16 LED Bulbs. My happy customers are taking out their old 20 watt, 35 watt and 50 watt halogen and putting in my new 5 watt LED.

It's so easy to do and the energy savings is instant. The light output is just as bright and the warm white color is doing wonders for the landscape and architecture.

In the case you install the LED and it flashes, it just means you need to bump up the voltage at the transformer. The bulbs work best at 12v - 13 volts. If you have a question or comment, please post and I'm happy to share my knowledge with you.

I'm just excited to have so many people taking the step to conserve. Take a look around your home for other applications to use these bulb. Like your halogen track lights...I have six and went from 300 watts in my track lights down to 30 watts!

MR16 LED Bulb

In a previous post, I mention my 5 watt-led landscape lighting kit; however I forgot to mention my new MR 16 LED bulb.

Many of you have a system already and may not want to change all of your fixtures. Here's what I have so far: a new MR 16 LED - 5 watt bulb that fits your typical up,down light.

Take out that halogen 20 watt or 35 watt and put in the 5 watt. The bulb is good for 10,000 hours and save 75-85 percent in energy.

Oh yes, these bulbs are also great indoors for track lighting fixtures that use MR16.

Hope you enjoy the info...

New Item-LED Landscape Lighting Kit

Folks have been asking for help putting together a small LED lighting system so, I put together a LED landscape lighting kit. The landscape lighting kit has (6) up/down lights, (4) path lights and (1) 150 watt transformer.

No bulbs to change
Last 50,000 hours (10 years +)
Environmentally friendly - no gases

The 6/4 combination of lights is typical of a basic front or backyard design. It will allow you to create a simple, safe and beautiful design. The best part is this - the kit only uses 50 LED watts but includes a 150 watt transformer. That leaves room to add up to 20 (5watt) lights.

Take a look for yourself by visiting

Have a blessed day,
