Landscape lighting can turn your outdoor space into an inviting and breathtaking display. But how much does it cost for the installation?
Well, the cost to install low-voltage landscape lighting in Florida ranges from $67 to $130 per light fixture.
Yeah, that’s a huge difference in price but that’s because the price per light fixture varies depending on:
Let’s take a closer look at how these 4 factors affect cost.
While various options exist for low-voltage landscape lights, homeowners typically choose between 2 common options:
*Prices above only include cost of the bulb itself, not installation/labor costs.
Our suggestion? If you can afford the higher upfront cost of LED lights, this is the most ideal option. That’s because LED lights last much longer than halogen lights, which means lower long term costs for replacement bulbs.

*The frequency of bulb replacement varies depending on how often you use/power your landscape lighting.
If you’re trying to add lights around existing landscape, this will increase the cost of the overall project.
That’s because your electrician will have to implant light fixtures and then bury/run wiring around existing trees, shrubbery, and structures, which will increase the time and labor of the project.
If you don’t have existing landscaping yet, your electrician will be able to place light fixtures and wiring without restriction, which cuts down on time, labor, and cost.
If your landscape lights don’t fit on an existing circuit, you’ll need to have an electrician install a new circuit breaker. And this can cost an additional $200 to $300, depending on the size of the breaker and your electrical panel.
Wondering if you’ll need a new breaker installed or not? Well, it all depends on:
If you’re not sure whether you have room on an existing circuit or not, have an electrician inspect your panel.
The more skilled and experienced the electrician, the higher they’ll charge to install your low-voltage landscape lighting.
But also consider whether the electrician will be providing a custom landscape lighting “design” versus installing a few lights where you want them placed.
The more comprehensive the project, the more you’ll want to consider choosing an electrician who can also provide a customized lighting design, if needed. Why? Well, a trained electrician who specializes in landscape lighting will be able to combine various types of spotlights, uplights, wall washing, path lights, etc. to enhance the beauty of your outdoor space and add security.
