Budgeting Outdoor Lighting How it is Done



Budgeting outdoor lighting can be ambiguous. Quality Outdoor Lighting is a long term investment that enhances the look and feel of your home or business. Light Up Springfield LED Landscape Lighting Systems can vary in price depending on the size and scope of job and property. The LED type can play a large roll in the budget building process. There three types we use. Regular LED, Zoning & Dimming LED, and Color Changing RGBW. The following is an idea of an average investment for a Regular LED system designed and installed by Light Up Springfield. Other LED types add cost due to material being “smart” and simply having more capabilities than standard on and off LED’s..

We use the same high quality products and installation process on each and every project we undertake – whether it is a small property or a large custom designed estate. Where products do change is when smart lighting is desired. Please consult with Scott for advanced lighting control.
We know the quality and performance of the products we install and are the best equipped to know how many lights are needed, where and how they need to be positioned, and how to correctly use each fixture for its purpose and its fullest potential to achieve the best result you are looking for as a homeowner.
We will not compromise our high standards by agreeing to use a lesser quality product or shady installation techniques to compete with uneducated lighting competitors. Lower end products with poor installation techniques only cost more down the road.
