the light bulbConceptualizing garden décor some years back was an after thought. No one put much effort into it and most of the time a few ordinary light bulbs were hung around the property to keep the area illuminated. However, we have come a long way from the light bulb, and garden décor is now a very important part of the overall home décor. To put it in a nutshell, the light bulb doesn’t really suffice any longer!
Welcome to the world of LED lighting where you get a chance to experiment with lots of fun and interesting options. Take a look at its benefits:
•    Unlike LED, other types of lights utilize way too much energy and emit quite a bit of heat, which can damage and burn plant vessels. Eventually, your plants might die or show stunted growth. Since LED lights operate on low voltage, your plants are safe from being subjected to high temperature constantly.
•    You need to be extra careful regarding the lights used in your garden, especially if you have children or pets in the house. LED lights generate little energy, which prevents the bulbs from being overheated, so there is no harm done if someone touches it.

•    It is said that using such lights for energy efficiency saves up to 80% of the energy, which in turn means you can save quite a bit of money on your electricity bills in the long run.
•    LED lights are quite tough as they can withstand rain or water spills. Moreover, they don’t break like glass nor do chemicals ooze out of it in case it breaks accidentally.
•    A solar equivalent is now available – it combines the power of LED and solar energy in one unit. Since your garden is outdoors, it won’t be much of a problem placing these lights under direct sunlight, which is stored in batteries in the lighting unit and that same energy is used up for powering the lights during evening and at night.
•    If you compare LED with traditional incandescent lighting options, you will notice that the former has a much brighter and softer glow that isn’t harsh upon the eyes. This quality is very useful in lighting up areas that are usually too dark for people to see clearly.
LED lighting is available in various colors and styles, so you can easily find some that matches the theme and appearance of your garden. The idea is to provide a warm and relaxing ambience, which the light bulb can’t really accomplish. So what are you waiting for? Start decorating right away!
