Where to Begin with Landscape Lighting

I've talked about fixtures, lighting design, automation and maintenance for outdoor landscape lighting. Now I'd like to offer a few best practices for getting started. The first is the desire or need but then you'll need to ask your designer for help.

A complimentary design consultation will give you the opportunity to talk with a professional designer who is willing to listen and offer immediate feedback; a night time demonstration of the lighting effects is important as well. A good designer will be able to incorporate your ideas and will know what fixtures to use for the effect you desire.

Look for quality materials (copper and brass), warranty on work and product, multi-tap transformers for optimal performance, automation (timer options) and maintentance for the system after it is installed.

Hope this helps,
