5 Tips to Get Professional Results

Experienced landscape lighting contractors know that to get professional results, you need to:

  1. Use a magnetic core, multi-tap transformer.
  2. Use waterproof direct burial splices.
  3. Have a layout plan that compensates for voltage drop and uses the correct types of fixtures for the landscape lighting effects you desire.
  4. Use high quality landscape lighting fixtures and bulbs.
  5. Have a proper design with proper installation plans.

Bonus Tip: For fine tuning, use a voltmeter to test that each fixture location's voltage is within the operating range listed for that specific fixture (typically between 10.5-12 Volts).
