Each lamp is attached by contacts to the wire and has a staked end which can be pushed into the ground to keep the lamp anchored and secure. Wire can be buried under two or three inches of soil or mulch. Today, a new line of LED landscape lighting lamps are available. LED's last longer, provide bright, white light and are more energy efficient. Transformers, wire and lamp heads can be purchased separately or in a kit which includes wire, transformer, contacts and lamps. Kits come in a variety of wattages and lamp styles and range in cost from $20.00 to $150.00, depending on the size of the transformer, length of wire and number of lamps.
Choose high voltage for wall lights, deck lights and lights around a swimming pool. You might also want to choose high voltage for a powerful garden up-light to illuminate a large tree or building. With high voltage lights you will need to install an armoured electrical cable that can't be damaged by gardening tools and equipment. You will also need to use appropriately insulated electrical connectors.
Changing a light bulb is one of the easiest yet most effective ways of reducing energy consumption and cutting carbon emissions. Simply replacing an incandescent bulb with an energy saving alternative can cut electricity use by up to 80%. The Energy Saving Trust believes that lighting accounts for 8% of household electricity costs in the UK which means there is great potential for substantial energy and money savings.
