Bumping post in the hopes you'll find time between regular landscaping lighting contracts, halloween decorating assignments and the forthcoming winter holiday lighting contracts! Please see my immediately prior post from September, also you had a guidance in progress project that has not had a reply.

Hoping the reason we haven't seen you is that you're swamped with fantastically profitable work!

I'm currently in the market for a low voltage transformer, but I can't figure out which one to buy. I currently have a run of 6 - 50W spots and will probably add a string of path lights in the future. I've read that the pros like Kichler and FX-Luminaire, but they seem really expensive.

Any suggestions on what to get and where to get it?

thx, scott

Re: Landscape Lighting?

What type of lights are designed for outdoor use that meet to the approved European electrical safety standards (EN 60598) and carry an anti corrosion guarantee. Can you please help?

RE: Landscape Lighting?

Thanks for providing all the useful information guys. My existing garden lights are connected to an outside weather proof switch in the garden which is operated manually. I am planning to buy an automated system now. Please reply back with your valuable suggestions on what should I be looking to buy.

Thumbs up

Nice to have experts like Paul to help here.

Spring is a great time to get started on your landscape lighting.

We have enjoyed our outdoor lights since way back in the 70s. I am sure we were the only folks in the neighborhood at the time with lighting. It started as several mushroom lights around the pool deck and a set of four plastic malibu spotlights with colored lens. The equipment is just so much better now. I do feel many more homes could benefit from the nightscapes. It really adds value and curb appeal to see a nice outdoor lighting scheme. You can start small and grow your system as funds allow. Amazing what six or so lights will do to a home as a start.

IMO avoid the runway effect if possible and spread the lights out.

Remember this is "accent" lighting.
