How much does it cost to have low-voltage landscape lighting installed?
When we get asked this question, it can sometimes feel like we’re the Tootsie Pop’s mascot, Mr. Owl, being asked, “How many licks does it take to get to the tootsie roll center of a Tootsie Pop?”
Well, it all depends, there are so many variables affecting the price.
The cost of landscape lighting can range depending on the scale of the project.
It all depends on what you are looking to create.
When we design, we like to break it up into different scenes. (i.e. a moonlit patio area with accents on the surrounding trees would be considered one scene.)
Something that can affect the price is the cost of raw materials.
For example, copper is a key material in the production of our fixtures.
When the price of copper rises, it impacts our pricing strategy and necessitates adjustments.
We’re big fans of copper because they outperform almost everything else on the market. These bad boys are built to go the distance and stand up to whatever comes their way.
Our top-notch fixtures are also engineered with a quality that’s meant to last a lifetime.
And let’s talk about our LED lamps.
We’ve customized them to meet our specifications because we know that each fixture requires a unique touch.
One size definitely doesn’t fit all in our book.
When it comes to design, we pay close attention to lumen output and beam spreads.
These factors are key to achieving the perfect look and functionality for your space.
And hey, let’s not forget about wire connections.
We know they can be a weak link in any lighting system.
That’s why we go for water-tight shrink connections. No water damage is gonna rain on our parade.
There are many different considerations that contribute to different costs when lighting your landscape and outdoor living space.
While we can’t provide you with an exact price, determining the cost of a lighting design involves considering various factors unique to each home, landscape, and outdoor living space.

Building a top-notch, long-lasting lighting system involves extensive engineering and careful planning.
If you’re considering professional installation, it’s crucial to be selective.
If someone offers you a lighting system at a significantly lower cost than a high-quality system, there’s likely a good reason for it: that system may be prone to failure.
At the end of the day, investing in a reliable and durable lighting system is a wise choice for the long-term enjoyment of your space.
You know, it’s surprising how many contractors out there see lighting as just a side gig to make some extra cash.
They might not have the proper training or knowledge to engineer a solid lighting system. And to keep costs low, they resort to using cheap aluminum or composite fixtures, compromising on quality.
But let me tell you, insufficient wire connections, flimsy fixtures, and an installer who lacks expertise are a recipe for disaster.
It may sound strange, but it’s important to question why their prices are so low.
When the system eventually starts failing, chances are that person won’t be there to fix it or even want to deal with it.
