Landscape LightingEnjoy Your Garden All Year Round With A Professionally Installed Landscape Lighting System.
Light Up Your Nights with Landscape Lighting
By far the most exciting aspect to low voltage landscape lighting must be the dramatic effect it can have on your landscape in the evening and at night! Annuals show their bright colours, large specimen trees and shrubs come alive with dancing shadows and up-lit canopies, and architectural features of your home and garden show completely different features than they did during the day. Make your yard a beautiful outdoor canvas during the night with a professionally installed outdoor lighting system by University Sprinklers! Be sure to view our Gallery of Custom Landscape Lighting Projects we’ve recently completed.
Landscape Lighting Has Three Main Components
Transformers come in a variety of sizes to match the number of fixtures in the systems, and varying quality of construction. Transformers can also be fitted with timers and photocells to conserve power. Usually the transformer is powered by an outdoor plug.
Conductors are simply direct-burial low-voltage wires sized to correctly carry the load from the transformer to the lamps. They can be installed either with an irrigation system installation or in an existing landscaped yard on their own.
The lamps are the final and most exciting part of the landscape lighting system. There are two basic types of lamps: path lamps and up-lights. Path lamps are very decorative lamps that are seen both night and day. Because they are exposed and very much a part of your landscape decor, many customers enjoy picking the style and colour of path lamps themselves just as they would front door hardware, or trim and mouldings inside their house. Up-lights are generally fairly hidden and are used to shine light from the base of a tree or shrub upwards inside the foliage to create a stunning nighttime effect! All lamps are available from many different manufacturers and come in a variety of different finishes, shapes, colours, materials, and styles. At University Sprinklers we can install fixtures from any manufacturer you may choose – ask your quoter for some suggestions and sample brochures.
Our projects also often include exciting features like:
- green walls
- fire pits
Landscape lighting lets you enjoy the beauty of your outdoor setting during the evening hours, night after night! In addition to its many safety and security benefits, landscape lighting can significantly expand your living space while extending your time for recreation, relaxation, and entertaining outdoors!
