Landscape Lighting Installation

Outdoor lighting can add to your curb appeal and make your property less attractive to burglars. While we can all appreciate the end result, the installation process requires electrical skills that many of us don't have. If you want to brighten up your yard with outdoor lighting in Houston, call the professionals at ABC Home & Commercial Services. We can create a customized design that enhances your home's exterior and highlights your natural features.

Landscape lighting has three main purposes. The first is to direct guests to your entryways which may be more difficult to see in the evenings. Another is to show off different aspects of a yard, which can encourage you to spend more time outside and make your property an appealing gathering spot. Lastly, a well-lit landscape is a deterrent to burglars, so outdoor lighting can make your home safer.

ABC’s pros can work with you to add landscape lighting for practical purposes, as well as for aesthetic appeal. Popular areas to illuminate include:

Can you install solar lighting in my yard?

Solar lighting has become more popular in recent years, particularly in areas like ours that get ample sunshine. If properly installed, these lights can save money on electricity costs and can be a better option in parts of your yard where you don’t have an outdoor electrical outlet nearby. In addition, solar lighting systems are safer around water features, such as pools, since they don’t require power cords or electricity.

Solar landscape lighting does require some maintenance over time. As the battery gets dirty, charging may become less efficient. Our experts can help troubleshoot any issues you might be having with your solar lighting and make any needed adjustments to keep your lights working properly.

Can I use LED lighting in my yard?

Another alternative to traditional landscape lighting that some of our customers request is LED lights, one of the most energy-efficient lighting technologies. When an LED light bulb is turned on, a current passes through a microchip, which in turn lights up the tiny LEDs, creating light. The heat that is produced during this process is absorbed into a heat sink, as opposed to released outwards as you would find in traditional lighting.

Since LED lights shine one direction, you don’t need the reflectors and diffusers that are found in more traditional lighting setups. This is an added bonus if you are using LED lighting to highlight a specific feature in your yard.

What are the pros and cons of outdoor LED lighting when compared to more traditional lighting options?

While LED bulbs have a higher initial cost per bulb, they can end up saving you money in the long run. In fact, these bulbs use at least 75% less energy and can last 25 times longer. LEDs release very little heat in comparison to incandescent bulbs, which can emit 90% of their energy as heat. When a LED nearing the end of its service life, it will merely get dimmer, as opposed to an incandescent or compact fluorescent lighting (CFL), which simply burns out.

One disadvantage to this lighting option is that some LEDs can emit light that’s a bluish tint. However, with advancements in technology, most manufacturers have resolved this issue.

ABC’s lighting experts can work with you to weigh the pros and cons of all the options available to come up with a plan that best suits your needs and desires.

Will having outdoor lighting installed tear up my yard?

Our installers will make every effort to minimize any possible disruption to your regular routine when putting in your lighting. Your ABC pros will prepare you for what to expect, including any areas that we might need to disturb temporarily to get your new lighting up and running. We’ll get your yard looking nice and neat before we leave. You can expect that any immediate impact to your yard will be minimized in a matter of weeks.

“I would definitely recommend ABC!! They were professional, courteous, and did a great job. During the treatment my blinds had to be removed, and they graciously put them back up before they left. Blair came three weeks later to do a follow-up check and was extremely friendly and helpful. He gave me more information and suggestions in regards to staying bed bug free. He even carried my large Amazon package into the garage for me. I would definitely recommend them for all your pest control needs. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️”

“Do your research, but this is the company to choose for your pest and rodent control. A new townhouse community is being developed in an adjacent wooded field, so all these woodland creatures started relocating to our established neighborhood. I get it, this land was theirs before it was ours, but after 20 years, they had no right to move into my house rent free. The cute hares/ rabbits were ok at first. They would flop around, and the worst they would do is leave small chocolate eggs in the yard. But when we heard scurrying in the attic, our anxiety levels started to rise. We were already overwhelmed by a pipe bursting in the garage in February due to a flash freeze. Then we noticed droppings as the restoration company came and cleared out the garage. But we really didn't connect all the dots because simultaneously we were caring for my 85 year old grandmother who was on hospice care from terminal breast cancer. So our hands were a little full at the time. But when we saw evidence that there was probably a mouse or something, we had to make it a priority. I called 3 or 4 local companies for quotes. 2 came to the house and 2 acted like they could care less about actually securing my business but were willing to quote hundreds of dollars for the service. One thing that stood out was the other companies said they would plug the holes leading into the house, but 2 said they don't go into the attic. Well that's where we heard them and so it didn't make sense to not go in the attic to hunt them down. Then Kirby from ABC came out. He did a thorough inspection and designed a plan to attack the problem. They definitely weren't the cheapest company, but they provided the best proposal with the strongest warranty. So we pulled the trigger. The crew was very professional and plugged holes and set traps. And the we waited. But there were no dead mice for weeks. So they came back out and found more holes to plug. Then the rodents got more desperate. One was bold enough to entire the kitchen at night. I was ready to burn down the entire house. Frustration was level 10. By this point my grandmother had passed away. Grief plus phobia and a general sense of absolute exhaustion had settled in. All the techs that came out were nice, friendly, professional and courteous, BUT we were sick of the rats running our house. I was also frustrated by what seemed to be a long wait between reporting sightings and an available appointment time. Mark Rodriguez came out and did a good job observing the situation and he realized that a supervisor was needed for a solution. Enter Kenneth! He was absolutely amazing. Between crawling through the attic and discovering new holes to tracking down a food source (a case of mac snd cheese boxes) in the garage that my grandmother left months before her passing (she was always prepared for when her great-grandchildren came over), Kenneth understands the mind of a mouse and the rationale of a rat. He made it his mission to eliminate these evils. And one by one, he did. Kenneth is a hero in our household. He will be receiving a Christmas card this year. My grandmother's dying wish was to rid the house of these invaders, and Kenneth and his team were able to accomplish that. It was worth ever penny for the complete customer care and warranty on the work. If you are looking for a quality solution, you've found it. Be patient, because rodents can be tricky and hard to eradicate, but ABC is committed to the long haul.”
