The landscape lighting industry was the first to embrace LED technology. Now, as the light emitting diodes themselves have improved in color temperature options, higher CRI’s (color rendering index) and dimmability it’s time to rethink how we light our exterior spaces, using this new box of crayons. Light layering is still the cornerstone of a well thought out design. Blending task, accent, decorative and ambient sources creates outdoor rooms which expands the homeowners’ living and entertaining space beyond the four walls.
