Enbrighten Landscape Lights and Enbrighten Mini Landscape Lights are newer to the outdoor lighting scene but quickly winning over the hearts of home enthusiasts everywhere with their abundant color-changing effects, high quality design and versatile functionality. However, for the ones who haven't jumped aboard the quick and easy DIY landscape lighting project yet, how do you know which to choose? We've laid out the similarities and differences of both sets of Enbrighten Landscape Lights below to help you in your decision making and determine which landscape lights are better for you. 

Similarities and Differences of Landscape & Mini Landscape Lights:

Enbrighten-Landscape-and-mini-landscape-lights

These landscape lighting products can be used to keep your outdoor space looking bright and colorful all year round without ever needing to replace a bulb. With almost endless color combinations possible, built-in timers and effects, commercial grade build and multi-use functionality, they are both great for an array of different uses such as spotlighting, path-lighting, accent-lighting and more for your walkways, flower beds, deck, patio etc. But as every space is uniquely different, your needs will vary depending on what amount of brightness you need, the size of area you need to cover or the decor you prefer. These qualities differ in the Enbrighten Landscape Lighting and will need to be considered when choosing which lights are right for you and your home.

For example, the Enbrighten Landscape Lights have a longer cable distance in-between each light for more flexibility in covering large areas. They are also larger in puck size emitting more light per puck so even if you have them fully extended at their maximum distance, you won’t experience “back holes” of missing light. On the other end, the Mini Landscape Lights are smaller in size and have less light output per bulb but include more pucks per strand to illuminate your area.

We've laid out the technical similarities and differences in the table below. However, we've found the easiest way to determine what you need is to picture it in your space. Here are some examples of common uses of the landscape lighting placed around paving stone, in flower beds and on deck railing shown in both designs!
