Even if it’s your favorite time of the year, the holiday season is notoriously stressful. It’s difficult to avoid the pressures of buying gifts for loved ones, attend holiday parties, host family gatherings, and festively decorate your home or business. Venturing outdoors in the cold winter months to shop for presents and shovel snow is inevitable (especially in Iowa!), but did you know that you can get your home ready for the holidays long before the first snowfall? You can save time and prevent accidental falls by having permanent color-changing outdoor lights around your home instead of using traditional string lights.

How permanent color changing lights work

PermaLites 365 1

Permanent holiday lighting options — such as PermaLites 365 — are made of thin LED strips that are virtually invisible when not in use. These LED light strips can be precisely controlled using an intuitive smartphone app or computer to create stunning displays in millions of color combinations.

PermaLites can even be programmed to repeat specific light sequences or adjust to certain brightness levels. Best of all, a complete PermaLites system can be fully installed in one day, and they can last up to a decade with minimal upkeep.

Permanent holiday color changing lights vs. temporary lighting



One of the most common reasons people cite for not installing permanent holiday lighting comes down to the cost. In the short term, some may think it doesn’t make financial sense to invest in permanent outdoor lighting over the cheaper holiday string lights. However, when you consider the long-term benefits of permanent color-changing lights, it’s possible to save time and money in a few different ways.

Every year, countless people across the country experience the tedious chore of untangling strands of Christmas lights and checking for broken bulbs. These delicate strings of lights are easily broken, and they can be difficult to install around the trim of your house. It can take hours of balancing on a ladder in the cold to get the lights to hang exactly right, which can easily lead to slips, falls, or other accidents.

With permanent LED lights, you can have a professional install the lights for you at any time of the year. You’ll never have to untangle another strand of flimsy lights or climb a ladder in below-freezing temperatures in order to have a festive, brightly colored home! 

Electricity usage

Permanent color-changing LED lights only use about 12% of the electricity that temporary holiday lights need. PermaLite systems use just 60 watts of electricity for every 200 feet of lighting and they can be adjusted to any color of the rainbow. 

Temporary lights, on the other hand, can easily ramp up your energy bill and your carbon footprint during the holiday season. You’ll have to buy string lights more often since they typically only last for a season or two, and you won’t have the ability to change the color or brightness of your lights on a whim.

Removal and maintenance

If you’re used to putting up temporary holiday lights, you’re likely familiar with the removal process as well. It can feel a little disheartening to take down your decorations after spending so much time and effort making your home look perfect for the season, and the cold temperatures increase the likelihood of accidental injury. However, leaving your temporary lights up past the holiday season can be a serious eyesore. Most string lights are bulky and easily noticeable in the daylight.

PermaLites can be left up all year round without ruining the curb appeal of your house. Since the LED light strips are clear, thin, and installed near the trim of your home, they’re almost invisible during the daytime. They require little maintenance, so you can rely on them season after season without having to remove them, reinstall them, or purchase new lights after just a few months of use.



As mentioned above, one of the main benefits of color-changing LED lights is that they can be seamlessly adjusted with a few taps on your phone. This means that you can light up your home with colors to represent all kinds of holidays, events, and special occasions throughout the entire year.

You can light up your home with the colors of your favorite football team during the fall, your child’s favorite colors for their birthday, or deck out your home in spooky hues for Halloween. The color options are truly limitless with Permalites 365!

Our goal at All American Turf Beauty, Inc. is a simple one:

To provide you with the highest quality products and methods available.

We offer every kind of service that it takes to develop and maintain a beautiful lawn in Iowa based on the climate, soil types, and the varieties of grass that are commonly grown here.

One of the keys to the success of the program is that we provide treatment to lawns approximately every 8 weeks throughout the growing season. This ensures that the grass has fertilizer (food) available throughout the growing season. Dandelions and other Broadleaf weeds are controlled as they germinate thus enabling a weed free lawn, and our Turf Specialist is at the property four to six times per season to address problems as and when they arise.

Another key to our service is our people. The most important person to you in our company is the Turf Specialist assigned to treat your lawn.

We are proud to say that our Turf Specialists are the best trained and most experienced in the lawn care industry.

When you become a customer at All American Turf Beauty, a Turf Specialist is assigned to your account. You will have the same person treating your lawn each time. It is their responsibility to service your lawn, make sure it is receiving the correct applications as scheduled, and to provide you with the best personalized service possible. Their jobs depend on it.

We have several programs to choose from. Your Turf Specialist will recommend the best program that fits the needs of your lawn and your budget.
