We are often asked, is bud lighting expensive to run? The simple answer is no.

Bud lighting otherwise recognised as fairy lighting is not expensive to run and is low maintenance. A large tree with 150 – 250m of fairy lighting costs less than 50 cents to run for 8 hours.


Can we run fairy lighting every night?

Yes, Decorative Lighting Company’s bud lighting is energy efficient, and our LEDs have an expected life span of more than 40000 hours. Fairy lighting uses a minimal amount of energy to produce bright and crisp lighting.


If bud lighting is monitored and maintained, a living tree’s life expectancy is 3-5 years. We have many clients who have supported their tree lighting, and the light pieces are 7-8 years old, still operating.


Decorative Lighting Company sells the best quality bud lights in Australia. Using commercial grade fairy lighting, it will last for years! We specialise in quality and low energy use LED lighting and over 30 years of lighting supply experience.


Buy locally; there are lots of options, but not all suppliers are the same. All our lighting come with a 12-months guarantee and warranty, unlike many of our competitors. We also can offer extended warrantys for larger projects, contact us to find out more about that.
