The advantages of low voltage lighting.

These days, almost all outdoor landscape lighting fixtures work on a low voltage system. The main advantage of this is that it’s extremely safe to install and operate. There is no risk of injury from the lighting fixtures or cables even in wet weather, and there are even low voltage outdoor lighting fixtures designed to be used in and around ponds and water features. In fact, in most cases the lights are so safe you can move them around and plug and unplug them while they’re turned on. There’s no need to bury the cables underground once the landscape lighting system has been set up. You only need to hide them under garden mulch or behind rocks and other garden features.

The other advantage of low voltage lighting is that it radiates a soft, gentle ambient glow, which is perfect for landscape lighting purposes.
