The Best Lighting Techniques for Your Landscape

By qb2018 | Landscape Lighting | No Comments

When most people think of a landscape, they picture shrubs, trees and flowers. Often-times, they forget about TWO of the most important elements – the LIGHTS and the ARCHITECTURE. The right design not only enhances the security, but brings-on a new level of ambiance. Decorative Lighting While the manicured lawn, trees and shrubs provides an alluring atmosphere during the day, without decorative lighting at night, the yard can become a dark black abyss. To prevent this from happening, adding lights such as the Visionary 3 LED Spotlight will highlight the design and give shape to the landscape. Pathway Lighting The most common type of lighting for a landscape is pathway lighting. It not only creates a functional and safe path for a walker; but also creates visual interest within the yard. When it comes to implementing this style, it is best to stagger the lights. This ensures that obstacles or turns in the path are well illuminated. You want the light to highlight the path – not make it the focal point of the landscape. A great style of light to achieve the perfect pathway lighting is the P12 Path Light. Spotlight Grazing Showcasing a texture of a wall, plant,…

An Introduction to the Importance of LED Binning Ranges

By admin | Garden Lights, Landscape Lighting, LED Landscape Lighting, LED Outdoor Lighting | No Comments

  Binning is an important aspect of any LED lighting. The range of the light can affect its quality and performance. Here is a brief introduction to the binning ranges you should be aware of when purchasing your LED landscape lights. What is Binning? During the manufacture of LED lights, a round wafer is coated with materials designed to create a semiconductor, which is then sliced into small rectangles. Wire bonds are inserted, and phosphor is added as a coating. The entire product is then encapsulated, forming a white light LED. However, this coating process creates variations in the color, light output, and voltage of individual LEDs. These finished LEDs are then sorted into groupings called bins, based on the varying quality of color temperature, light output (lumens), and voltage. The two of these that impact the quality of the LEDs the most are color and lumens. The lights are individually measured for these two criteria and sorted into pre-set ranges (bins). Most suppliers also have their own standard bins which are associated with clear expectations of performance in those ranges. Each bin has its own criteria and standards, and any LEDs which do not meet the criteria are not…

How the Milling Process of LED Lights Improves Quality

By admin | Garden Lights, Landscape Lighting, LED Landscape Lighting, LED Lights Manufacturers, LED Outdoor Lighting | No Comments

  The manufacturing process that produces great LED landscape lights is called the CNC milling process. It is used by the finest manufacturers in the United States, including Garden Light LED. But what is CNC milling? Why does it matter? Let’s break it down. CNC Milling for LED Light Production Explained: CNC stands for Computer Numerical Control. CNC milling is used to manufacture a wide variety of objects we all use in our everyday lives, including cars, machine components, cell phones, and children’s toys. The machines used for this process are either horizontal or vertical, which refers to the orientation of the cutting tool. Before, CNC milling machines were manually or mechanically operated. However, with the invention of CNC, computers can automate the process from a central control. It reads information and stores it in a numerical format. These are read as programming codes, which are then used to control and operate a machine. This machine uses a cutting tool to remove excess material and form the object desired (such as an LED light). The cutting is started from either a solid block, pre-machined part, casting, or forging. There are various types of machining tools that can be used in…

Landscape Lighting Kits: 5 Ways LED is Leading the Way

By admin | General | No Comments

For something so small, LEDs have had a big impact. If things continue as predicted, the global LED lighting market will crack $54 billion in 2022. One application that’s getting more and more popular is LED landscape lighting kits. While little more than a curiosity in the early days, the technology has advanced rapidly. Read on to see how LED is leading the way in landscape lighting. Energy Efficiency Energy efficiency is a staple selling point of LED lighting. Of course, the standard comparison is between LEDs, regular incandescent lighting, and CFL. The main competitor for LED in outdoor lighting is halogen lighting. So how does LED stand up to halogen in terms of efficiency? LED still comes out on top. When producing a similar amount of light, LED is up to 72% more efficient than halogen. Materials One of the big complaints about early LED landscape lighting kits is that the fixtures were made of cheap plastic. It was a valid complaint. Those plastic fixtures broke if anyone looked at them sideways or a child even stepped onto the property. Cheap and more durable plastic LED lights are still available, but material choices have expanded a lot. LED landscape…
