A little outdoor lighting can go a long way! From fancy patios to tree-lined country yards, the right outdoor lighting can help you meet an array of needs, including illumination that makes tasks easier, sets the mood, and keeps your family and guests safe.</p> <h3>Porch and Patio Lighting</h3> <h4>Wall-Mounted Lights</h4> <p>Cooking and entertaining festivities held outside after dark need lighting that is convenient and safe. Practical and economical, wall mounted lights can meet an array of needs, providing focused task lighting for…</p> <ul><li>Safely illuminating entryways.</li> <li>Cooking and work areas.</li> <li>Dining areas.</li> <li>Small decks.</li> <li>And more…</li> </ul><h4>Carriage Lanterns</h4> <p>Carriage lanterns can help define patio and walkway edges, lighting the path to doors and entryways and illuminating obstacles such as stairs and garden beds.</p> <h4>Parameter Lights</h4> <p>Parameter lights offer form and function, adding a decorative element, but more importantly, when properly placed at key points in your yard, add guidance to entry and exit points on your property.</p> <h4>Mixed Lighting</h4> <p>Mixed lighting can create a truly magical effect throughout your property. Professional installation can save you time and money, conveniently planning and tapping into preexisting electrical lines.</p> <ul><li style="list-style-type: none;"> <h5>Uplights</h5> </li> <li style="list-style-type: none;">Uplights in planting beds spotlight larger trees and shrubs from underneath.</li> <li style="list-style-type: none;"> <h5>Downlights</h5> </li> <li style="list-style-type: none;">Downlights conveniently spotlight stairs and seating areas.</li> <li style="list-style-type: none;"> <h5>Stair Lights and Strip Lights</h5> </li> <li style="list-style-type: none;">Lighting with stair lights and strip lights for railings greatly improves safety.</li> <li style="list-style-type: none;"> <h5>Floor Lamps</h5> </li> <li style="list-style-type: none;">Floor lamps easily illuminate seating and workspaces.</li> </ul><h4><a href="http://www.33pulse.com/lighting-controls">Dimmers help lights do double duty</a>.</h4> <p>To easily control brightness levels according to time or mood, you may wish to consider adding dimmers to newly installed or existing outdoor lighting.</p> <h3><a href="http://www.33pulse.com/landscape-lighting">Decorative and Ambiance Lighting</a></h3> <h4>LED Illuminated Planting Pots</h4> <p>Make plants and landscaping pop with LED illuminated planting pots. Far from the average run-of-the-mill flower pot, these amazing lights not only make plants pop, but radiate high level outdoor light, making them an excellent choice for walkways.</p> <h4>String Lights</h4> <p>Not just for holiday lighting anymore, string lights can add sparkle and mood to any outdoor setting, such as trees, pergolas, arbors, posts, and furniture. They are also very effective when used to line railings, guiding guests along walkways.</p> <h4>Hanging Tree Lamps</h4> <p>From classic outdoor camping lanterns to fun craft finds, suspending lanterns from trees with fishing line can bring romance and magic to outdoor entertaining spaces. Battery operated or real tea lights make illumination a breeze, just be sure to keep candles a safe distance from leaves.</p> <h3><a href="http://www.33pulse.com/ballast-bulb-replacement">Energy Saving Lighting Options</a></h3> <h4>LED</h4> <p>When choosing fixtures and bulbs for outdoor lighting options, consider energy saving LED options, which use up to 85 percent less energy than incandescents and up to 50 percent less energy than fluorescents. Hate changing outdoor bulbs? LEDs last more than 10 years on average - that's 25 times longer than incandescents and 2-5 times longer than fluorescents.</p> <h4>Solar</h4> <p>Solar lighting options are also an excellent choice, converting and storing the sun’s energy and coming in a variety of types and uses, including wall-mounted, lamppost, security lights, and lanterns. Be sure to check “nightly run times” on product labeling to ensure you have enough sunlight for operating solar lights in your area. Feeling crafty? Make a few <a href="https://www.bubbyandbean.com/2011/08/diy-tutorial-pretty-decoupaged-mason.html" rel="nofollow">solar decorative lights</a> of your own.</p> <h3>Ensure Outdoor Lighting is Safe</h3> <p>Adding outdoor lighting to your property can be fun if it’s done properly and safely. Some installations may require running underground electrical cables, additional wiring within the walls of your home, the installation of fixtures, proper <a href="http://www.33pulse.com/gfci-outlets">GFCI outlets</a>, and more. Ensure all outdoor home electrical work is installed properly and safely by a licensed professional, using UL listed, weatherproof, safety compatible materials and devices.</p> <p>Transform your space and take full advantage of your time outdoors. <a href="http://www.33pulse.com/contact-us">Contact Mr. Electric? </a> and brighten up your yard with the latest in outdoor lighting today.</p> <div
