What's In a Low-Voltage System
Landscape lighting typically relies on stepped-down power from your house.
Transformer: Reduces 120-volt household current to a safer 12 volts.
Bulb: Determines a light's brightness, color, and beam width, as well as electricity usage.
Fixture Housing: Protects bulb from elements and helps shape light beam.
Stake Holds the fixture in place.
Cable: Carries current to light through fixture's lead wires.
Underlit trees and accent lights aimed at the facade create an inviting post-sunset atmosphere around this home.
