RE: garden lighting

A neighbor uses rope lights on pegs about 2' off the ground to edge his
sidewalks and edge around the beds.  Being higher up, it doesn't get covered
by plants as easily and if it does get a few leaves hanging over it, the
"rope" still peaks out enough to "show one the way."  It looks pretty nice
and is low voltage, too.  As for the dog, there are some small, battery
operated lights you might be able to attach to her collar.  If not that,
then you can get one of those reflective one, so that even a good moon's
light will cause it to shine for you.  Of course, if you know a supplier of
those chemical glow in the dark necklaces you see in theme parks, you could
use that, too.

Garden Lighting....

Curious how everyone lights up your pathways, open areas and what have

I a have a zillion Malibu lights (cheap ones) but of course the plants
all cover them up and they work for crap.

I am thinking of installing one of those huge lights on my roof, flip of
a switch and it is daylight. Really don't want to do that, but need to
be able to see out there.

Currently wildlife is everywhere, so you might step on something... got
that darn heron back...fox... and who knows what else, can't see! 

I mostly worry about my dog, she is quiet and just moseys to the back of
the yard and appears back at the door later. The yard is fenced in and
locked, so she can't get out, but being a black cocker spaniel you can't
see her either!
