How to Install Landscape Lighting

When you want to learn how to install landscape lighting for your home or business, Friedman’s Home Improvement is here to help. The key to any successful installation is having a solid plan first, and our Xpert Advisors will be happy to direct you to the landscape lighting supplies you’ll need, after you have designed your plan.

The Planning Stage:
When surveying your yard or garden, you should take several things into consideration when planning your landscape lighting layout.
● How large is the total yard?
● How large of an area do you want illuminated?
● Do you want the lighting to come from electrical wiring or from solar panels?
● Do you have dark areas that need additional lighting for security?
● Do you have walking paths or sidewalks that need extra lighting to help keep people (and toes) safer?
● Do you have plants, flowers, or trees you wish to highlight with landscape lighting?
● Do you want an easy landscape lighting installation project, or are you okay with an installation that requires the assistance of an electrician?
● Will these lights be permanent or only meant for seasonal use?

The Installation Stage:
Once you have completed your plan / landscape lighting layout, feel free to bring that plan to an Xpert Advsior, and that individual can help you find all the landscape lighting supplies you’ll need. Many of our landscape lighting installs as quickly as Christmas lights, so if you like an easy DIY landscape lighting installation project, we have the materials for you!

The Enjoyment Stage:
After you have installed your landscape lighting, you will be able to relax and enjoy your beautifully lit yard or garden. Now that your landscape is illuminated by light, you can spend more time outdoors, walk down your pathways unencumbered, and enjoy the illuminated beauty of your plants and flowers.

Whether you are a landscape professional or just getting started with landscape lighting, our friendly and helpful Team Members are always happy to be of assistance. Our Xpert Advisors can help you gather all the landscape lighting installation supplies you’ll need at Friedman’s Home Improvement.
