Water Garden Lighting- Aquascape

Want to take your water feature from beautiful (daytime) to stunning?  Add night lighting! With both submersible and landscape fixtures available it’s easier than ever to accomplish.  Tuck a small fixture behind a waterfall and the feature takes on a subtle glow; nestle a 360o pond light in the middle of the main pool and you’ll enjoy watching fish swim in and out of the light beam. If you want to add more “sparkle” place a submersible accent fixture in the middle of the most turbulent water because the bubbles create a magical lighting effect. Just remember to include a ledge or large recess that remains dark so the fish have both a place to rest and get away from any night-time predators.  Read more

Why LED?

LED (Light Emitting Diode) has rapidly been replacing incandescent lighting in the past few years. It is no secret that LEDs are much more durable and long-lasting than incandescent lamps.  This is because a diode is comprised of a solid state material that produces light when a current is passed through it.  An incandescent lamp (“light bulb”) is old technology (see Thomas Edison) that when voltage is introduced a filament heats up to several hundred degrees and emits light.  Incandescent lighting is extremely inefficient and wastes a lot of energy.  For every 100 units of energy used, 96 is wasted as heat; so it’s efficacy is minimal.  Read more

Why Use Integrated Lighting

An integrated LED light fixture is a luminaire in which the light emitting diodes (LED) are sealed inside the housing.  Although incandescent lighting remains the majority of older installations, LED landscape lighting is taking over fast.  Most contractors solely install LED now, and if asked to service old incandescent systems they are working with homeowners to convert the systems over to LED.  The long term benefits and cost savings far outweigh the cost of purchasing the LEDs.    Read more

Light Your Way to More Work
