The Lay of the Landscape

Landscape lighting is a Key Component of Creative Holiday Decorating

The Lay of the LandscapeInvesting in landscape lighting is a great way to jazz up your property no matter what the season, but it incorporating it into your outdoor Christmas décor is a particularly desirable strategy at holiday time. After all, no matter where you live, winter brings fewer daylight hours, and the area surrounding your home simply isn’t as visually interesting as it is at other times of the year.

Going Beyond the Basics–Outdoor Holiday Lights

When many people think of landscape lighting for Christmas, the image of outdoor holiday lights simply strung across a bush immediately comes to mind. However, there’s far, far more to it than that. An essential element of creative holiday decorating–which is all the rage these days– landscape lighting can feature traditional or LED Christmas lights used to outline shrubs, paths, beds, creeks, roofs, and driveways alike. Either type of lighting technology can also be put into place to wrap columns, tree trunks and canopies. If you’re particularly ambitious, garland, wreath, trees, topiaries, bows, ornamentals and the like can serve to augment some or all of these.

Debunking Other Myths

The Lay of the Landscape 1Another myth about Christmas landscape lighting is that it should be restricted to outdoor holiday lights. Nothing could be farther from the truth. As it relates to creative holiday decorating, landscape lighting also encompasses other types of illumination to set the scene for a wintry wonderland. For example, if you have spruce trees or distinctive shrubbery set against a stone or brick wall or a even a white fence, place a spotlight there to highlight the “scene” at night.  If you want to get a bit more “Christmasy” and the backdrop is of a light color (white, for example), use a red bulb.

Extending The Glow–Creative Holiday Decorating

The Lay of the Landscape 2Sure, well-designed, well-executed landscape lighting will brighten your holiday and beyond. But you can also leverage your investment at other times of the year. Leave a few lights (not the multi-colored ones) around a group of plants or in a tree. One creative homeowner puts away the strings of red and green lights in the attic once the Christmas season is over, but takes strings of lights and creates fanciful shapes–from flowers to summer dresses, on a few of her bushes throughout the year. So don’t be afraid to experiment–your landscape, and perhaps even your neighbors and passers-by, will thank you.

The Why’s and How’s of Commercial Christmas Lighting

Xmas lights and other touches lend a festive air to non-residential environments

The Why and How of Commercial Christmas LightingIf the economy has you thinking about cutting down on or eliminating Xmas lights and other decorations from your business this year, you may want to re-consider your strategy. Consumers have come to expect to see festive lighting where they shop, as well as at commercial establishments in general. Commercial Christmas lighting not only allows operations to create a welcoming environment for customers and clients, but helps to set them apart from the pack and keeps people coming back for more of whatever products or services you offer. Additionally, Xmas lights and other types of decoration get employees into the holiday spirit, bolstering their own productivity.

Leading with LED Christmas lights

The Why and How of Commercial Christmas Lighting 1One of the best and most festive lighting options you can select is LED Christmas lights. LED Christmas lights have become a popular Christmas lights sub-category–for commercial Christmas lighting and residential lighting purposes alike–because they are highly affordable and energy-efficient. Traditional incandescent mini-bulbs have filaments, but LED lights do not–meaning they need about 88% less energy to operate as well as generate less heat than other kinds of bulbs. LED lights are also manufactured from heavy plastic, yielding them a durability that’s especially favorable for commercial establishments. You can hang LED lights as you would other types of Christmas lighting, or make them part of a Christmas village scene. Also worth considering are LED icicle lights, which look like real icicles and come in a variety of shapes, such as traditional, snowflake, and star, and colors, like white, blue, pink, and purple.

Getting it done

The Why and How of Commercial Christmas Lighting 2For many businesses, municipalities, and the like, using commercial Christmas lighting has come to mean more than hanging a few strings of Christmas lights. Throughout the country, you can find a wealth of companies that specialize in commercial Christmas design and offer full custom décor and program packages. These firms generally send an expert to photograph the area or areas to be decorated, then utilize color digital graphics to enhance the photo(s) and replicate the desired look for client approval. Christmas lights and other decorations are then fully installed according to clients’ specifications, with any necessary alterations made during the process.

A hybrid approach

The Why and How of Commercial Christmas Lighting 3Despite the appeal of employing a custom design firm to create commercial Christmas lighting designs, doing so is often outside businesses’ budgetary parameters. In recognition of this fact, some design companies have begun to promote hybrid programs that comprise custom decorations whose price is relatively competitive with standard catalog decorations. To do this, they take “stock” pre-existing designs and personalize them with unique elements, such as special Christmas lighting treatments.  The end-result is, for the most part, unique, but is less costly to design and produce because it does not come entirely from scratch. But no matter what approach you take to commercial Christmas lighting, don’t neglect this essential this Christmas.

LED String Lights to The Rescue

In with the new, out with the old
LED string lights to the rescueIntrigued by LED string lights but don’t know anything about them? Tired of dealing with incandescent lights but don’t know of any other alternatives? Decorating and preparing for the holidays can be a bit overwhelming at times, so use this guide to see how and why LED Christmas lights are the more efficient and longer-lasting light sources for enjoying holiday lighting.

Perks of using LED string lights

One of the biggest advantages of owning LED lights over incandescent ones is the amount of energy they save.

Worried about safety? Built with solid, flameproof plastic non-breakable materials, you will never have to worry about leaving your lights alone anymore. Even after being on for a couple of hours, LED lights will never get hot like incandescent lights due to the material they are made out of. On top of that, LED lights contain no Mercury, eliminating all risk of toxic exposure.

Why LED lead the pack
LED string lights to the rescue 1Like to save money? LED string lights last about 100 times longer than average incandescent lights, allowing you to spend some of that Christmas money you save up each year on presents rather than holiday decorations. Burn-out bulbs will no longer be a problem since LED lights typically have a 100,000 hour life span compared to 2,000 hours for incandescent bulbs.

Along with saving you money, LED lights come in a variety of colors that help create that perfect holiday atmosphere. With colors like red and green, purple and blue, you have many options at your disposal. LED bulbs are also 10 times brighter than incandescent bulbs, allowing you to fully showcase your decorations to others.

LED Christmas Lights–Make Holiday Decorating Greener

LED xmas lights make holiday decorating greener

Why LED Christmas Bulbs are Greener

LED xmas lights make holiday decorating greener 1Common sense tells us that outdoor holiday lights are the farthest thing from green.  But, if you insist on lighting your home, consider LED Christmas lights for energy conservation and cost savings.

Based on the semiconductor diode, LEDs (light emitting diodes) release light when the electrons combine with holes.  Although LEDs originally emitted only red light, today’s LEDs produce light across the visible, ultraviolet and infra red wavelengths.  This allows interior as well as exterior LED Christmas lights to be produced in a rainbow of colors.

The Benefits of LED

LED xmas lights make holiday decorating greener 2Selecting LED Christmas lights will cost you a bit more up front, but they will use up to 90 percent less energy and can last up to seven times as long as regular incandescent lights.  You can expect a savings of over 50% on your holiday electric bill and anticipate 100,000 hours of lighting when these LED Christmas bulbs are used indoors.

LED Christmas Lights–Not only Greener


LED xmas lights make holiday decorating greener 3LED lights are not only greener but have a longer lifetime than classic incandescent Christmas bulbs.  They’re also faster switching, more robust and can be manufactured in smaller sizes–as in the case of the LED Christmas mini lights. The array of choices in LED holiday lights has grown tremendously over recent years.  Check with your local vendor and expect to find more variety in this type of lighting than you knew ever existed.
