Design Tips

Okay so today is just a beautiful as yesterday!

If you decide to design your own lighting sytem (and you can do it) make sure you take the time to walk around the area you are considering lighting up. Look at the area from several points in the yard and ask yourself, "what would I like to see when I'm sitting here?" Move around and ask the same question. Doing this will help you determine where to place your fixtures to get the most out of the beautiful light it will provide.

For a more energy efficient system, consider using LED lights which are at least 80% more efficient that the standard halogen lighting system. The up front costs are higher but the energy savings will give you an excellent return on your investment!!!

There are other things to consider but doing this little exercise will prove to be one of the most beneficial....
