Cost effective lighting
The costs can really vary between each project. But there are some key points to keeping it cost effective and efficient. To minimize upfront cost you will want to keep your lighting expectations low and expect higher electric bills. One of the main upfront costs are the bulbs used in the fixures. By now you have probably heard that LED’s are for more effecient than Halogen bulb’s. However if you are on an initial budget and want to light the entire front of your house and 15 different trees. The cost can jump tramendously for just the Bulbs. So what do you do? Start with choosing what type of fixure finnish you would like. Aluminum is typically the most affordable but it tends to not hold up as long. Aluminum fixtures can range but are typically $10-$25 each. Brass fixures are most preffered by proffesionas since they last upto 4-5 times longer and are typically $25-$50 each. If you are on a really tight budget then opt in for the aluminum fixure with the hologen or incondecent bulbs. But if you can spend a few hunder more then get the higher quality fixures. If you do invest into the higher quality fixures then in a couple of years you may be able to afford to switch out the bulbs to LED and in turn become more efficient on the electric bill.

Back Yard Lighting
People are spending more and more time outdoors. One of the most preffered places to enjoy the outdoors is in your own safe backyard. We tend to want to go inside once the sun goes down, but with the right lighting you can safely enjoy your backyard as the moon comes up.
One of the first things people do is add in security lighting. Either to deter criminals or animals, security lighting usually consists of motion activated lights. These lights are typically placed in high areas pointing down, on gates or entry ways or close to doors of the house or garage. For maximum effect, make sure that your choice has a three-bulb housing and a brightness rating of at least 2000 lumens.
