Landscape Lighting myth #1: The more light the better.
If you hear a salesperson claim, “the more light, the better” find someone else to do business with. This person is only interested in a quick sale, rather than educating you on effective and environmentally responsible lighting. When it comes to outdoor lighting, there comes a point where you can have too much of a good thing. More light simply means more glare, which can actually reduce visibility. Excessively bright, numerous and unshielded lights also cause clutter, light pollution and energy waste. Lighting quality is often as important to visibility as quantity.
