A wallpak is a great idea, or move the hoop. MIght be cheaper in the long run to re-position the hoop....pipe, concrete, shovel.....you get the idea

Lots of different wallpaks for use at many different heights....uplights, downlights, shaded, filtered, cut off. I'm sure there is an application that would work at any height if the OP was so inclined.

lucky you only have to buy 2.
I have six of those on the front of my house.

many years to go hoping our kids don't break one ( and I'm blaming them if I break one :D )

just buy 3 so you have a spare if you go the cheap route.

Merci,
Marc

What coach luminaire would be the best type. What material? The one I have now points down vs up. I prefer this type.
