Flood Light Landscape




Whether you need to illuminate a large architectural area, or want to highlight a natural feature in your landscape, a Flood Light Landscape fixture is the answer. This design is part of Cardon Lighting’s High Quality Series, and is made of Heavy Duty Solid Brass with a weathered brass finish and clear convex glass.

Low voltage

When lighting your landscape, low voltage flood lights and spotlights can be used to light specific areas. Spotlights illuminate a narrow area while floodlights illuminate a large area. The former can produce a bright, concentrated beam while floodlights emit a diffuse light that keeps the space from being pitch black. There are advantages and disadvantages to both types of lights.

Low-voltage landscape lighting needs to resist water and impact in order to be effective. Lighting components of consumer outdoor electrical devices should be rated according to the International Protection Code (IP) to ensure their protection. Generally, low voltage landscape lights should have an IP 65 rating. This means that they can withstand jetting water and dust particles. A higher IP 67 rating is required for buried well lights.

Installing low-voltage lighting systems requires the assistance of an electrician. It involves installing stakes in the ground, staking trees, and running wires from light to light. Once the lights have been installed, make sure to leave at least 18 inches of slack between the wires and the fixtures to ensure safety.

Low voltage flood light landscapes come with a variety of features. Some are adjustable, while others feature a dimmer control. Some models are more expensive than others, but LED bulbs are a good investment for the long-term. In addition to being more energy-efficient, LED bulbs also last longer than incandescent ones. Solar lighting is another option, which uses a battery to power its lights during the night. However, unlike low-voltage lights, solar lights are not as bright as their counterparts.


LED flood light landscape lighting is an environmentally-friendly lighting option for outdoor landscape lighting. These energy-saving lights are designed to last for thousands of hours – long beyond the lifetime of conventional incandescent lamps. These lights are highly flexible and can be used for landscape lighting in many locations. Depending on the desired illumination, they are useful in city sculpture, residential districts, green belts, and shopping malls.

LED landscape flood lights come in different styles and colors. Some of the more common landscape flood lights are bullet flood lights, which are slim and have a focused light beam. These flood lights are mounted using trunnions, pipe knuckles, and slip fitters. You can also choose to install them on a pole or wall. Some landscape flood lights even come with photo sensors.

LED flood lights are easy to install. The many types of mounting systems make installation a snap. Depending on your desired beam angle, you can install your lights in any location. You can even adjust the beam angle by loosening the thumb-screw on the fixture. You then need to move it to the desired position.

The LED floodlight is a versatile light source that has numerous auxiliary applications. Unlike standard floodlights, it can illuminate in any direction with uniform light. Since they come in a variety of colors and styles, you’ll have plenty of options for lighting your landscape. LED floodlights are ideal for landscape lighting, which includes park square lighting and outdoor advertising.


Filters for flood light landscape lighting can help you customize the color of your lighting. A dichroic filter changes the color of the light by making it appear cooler or warmer, which is ideal for highlighting green foliage in summer. A blue filter, on the other hand, highlights bare bark during winter. A variety of filters and lens combinations allow you to create the right look for your landscape lighting.

Color correction filters are available in various types, including hex louvers, frosted lenses, and diffusion lenses. They alter the light’s spectrum to soften edges, even out hot spots, and minimize spill. Dichroic filters are generally not used for primary area lighting or floods. However, they can be used as backlights and for prominent spotlighting.

Beam spread

When choosing flood lights for your landscape, one factor to consider is the beam spread. Using the correct beam spread for the area you’re lighting is crucial for getting the results you’re after. A lighting expert at Illuminations USA can help you determine the correct beam spread for your landscape lighting needs.

Beam spread describes how the light is dispersed within the beam produced by a flood light fixture. Floodlights with a narrow beam spread are ideal for areas that require a tight beam, while those with a wide beam spread are better for areas where a wide spread is necessary.

Beam spread is important for lighting areas where there’s no direct focus on light. Flood lights cast a broad background of light that accentuates the surrounding landscape. Landscape flood lights are smaller than the flood lights on baseball fields. Their wide beam spread means that they cast even illumination. Because of this, flood lights are a popular choice for lighting a large space. You can even install them on trees for downlighting.

Beam spread is a key consideration when choosing a flood light for your landscape. It determines the width of the beam. Different types of reflector lamps offer different beam spreads. Spot lights, for example, have beams that are 45 degrees wide; flood lights can cast a beam of light up to 120 degrees.


Flood lights are used in outdoor landscape lighting and are an excellent way to illuminate hardscapes, small ponds, mailboxes, shrubs, pathways, patios, and more. They enhance the beauty of the landscape while providing safety and security. Landscape flood lights are available in many different types and can be installed in commercial or residential settings.

Typically, floodlights cost between $80 and $170. Another type of outdoor lighting is wall lanterns, which attach to walls. They provide an elegant ambiance and come in a variety of styles. These lights are also easy to install and are available at a wide range of prices. A single wall lantern can cost anywhere from $100 to $150.

The cost of landscape lighting varies based on the size of the backyard, the number of fixtures, and the type of installation required. On average, a landscape lighting installation involves about 20 fixtures. If you have a large backyard, you may need as many as thirty to fifty fixtures. While you can DIY some of the work, other installations may require a professional electrician.

Landscape lighting should not flood your outdoor space with light, since this can add up to your electrical bill. It should be used for highlighting dark areas and accentuating features of your yard. The lighting should also be dim and controlled through remote controls or clock timers.


There are two types of landscape lighting: floodlights and spotlights. Spotlights provide specific illumination while floodlights produce a wider beam of light. The primary difference between these two types is the size of their beam. Spotlights are more suited for creating visual interest and floodlights are generally used for general illumination.

Floodlights are a great choice for landscape lighting because they can create a soft, even backdrop of light that draws attention to the most beautiful features of a landscape. These lights generally require just one or two fixtures to cover a large area. They are easy to install and don’t require any wiring.

When installing line-voltage landscape lights, you’ll need to check the voltage of the existing wiring. If you’re not sure, you can buy a digital voltage meter for $25 at Radio Shack. Halogen lights need between 10.5 and 12 volts to operate properly. If you get a reading anywhere lower than this, the connection is either not secure or there are too many lights on the circuit. If you want to make minor changes to the voltage of your lighting, you can use a transformer’s voltage controls.

When deciding on a location for the lights, keep in mind the visitors and residents in the area. Floodlights are excellent for areas where foot traffic is high. They also make for an effective deterrent for potential intruders. Many floodlights are motion-activated, meaning that they will automatically turn on when someone approaches them. is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a way for websites to earn advertising revenues by advertising and linking to or .ca,, etc.
