How 2 Landscape Lighting

Related Story

BATON ROUGE - When it comes to brightening the outside of your home you may want to consider landscape lighting. This week on News 2 at 4, "How 2" expert David Stringfellow tells us the benefits and teaches us how to do it ourselves.

One benefit of landscape lighting is it's a proven deterrent to crime. It increases safety and protection for your family and friends, especially at night.  One thing to consider is how many lights to place: one won't scare anyone away. Motion detection lights work best because they save energy, only going off when someone passes by.

The best part about the outdoor lights Stringfellow tells us about is that you can do it yourself. They are fairly inexpensive and can easily be installed.

There are several varieties you can choose from. Low-voltage lighting systems are less expensive to maintain and burn a fraction of the energy required by high-voltage lighting systems which typically use 120 volts.
