Expert outdoor lighting installation will instantly transform your landscape and make it even more attractive. Your technician will determine where to install light fixtures, which types to install and how to connect the entire system. In this article, we are going to look at a couple of other things you should remember during the outdoor lighting installation process.
One thing that determines where to place the light is objects or transitions on your garden’s path. These areas require good lighting for safety and precaution. A good place to install lights would be about a foot away from a step. Up-lights are great when placed around arches and shrubs for accentuation.
We use a low voltage wiring system to make connections for landscape lighting in residences. A cable with two conductors makes up to 12 volts of energy which minimizes the risk of injuries in case of cable cuts. To make the connection, we use a brass connector. We then seal the connection with an adhesive making it fail-proof.
The cable is laid following a natural path to keep it away from people and animals. It is best to bury the wire at least four to six inches underground. Leave a coil around each fixture to allow for flexibility in case of changes. If you need help during this process, it’s best to find a professional service that can help you. Working with lighting requires a certain level of knowledge that the average person doesn’t have.
