At one time most landscape lighting consisted only of a front porch light and maybe a light or two on the pathway. Today our landscape lighting ideas also include our backyard gardens after the sun has gone down. By using innovative landscape lighting we can create additional rooms of our homes. The garden rooms that we created are now used for relaxing and entertaining. We need to figure out how we want our homes and landscape to look after dark. Do we want to highlight the landscape or our house or both? Trees fountains hardscapes statuary and flowerbeds will stand out with the right placement of your lights.
WIRING PLAN & INSTALLATION Next begin to consider where you can best place the wire runs. Along the edges of hardscapes is often a good choice. Make right angles for wire turns and arrange your plan not only for maximum efficiency but also in a way that makes sense to you as you work in your property. A good way to try this is to run string or twine from the location of your transformer (by your GFCI outlet) to the fixtures. There are several methods of laying out the wiring. The better and best ways are by using a "T" style installation or a "hub" installation. Most professional quality LED installations can use a series or "daisy chain" method. The method you choose will depend on the type of fixtures the distance from the transformer and the type and size of wire.

Look into the fixture at least every year to check for water seepage or corrosion around the socket. Lubricate o-rings and replace o-rings that are dry worn or torn. Trim away foliage that is overgrown or blocking the fixtures. Add extension stems to raise the height of the fixtures in groundcover areas or adjust locations as the landscape material matures.
