Re: garden lighting

Kichler is one of the best, Cathy. Our lighting installs are usually combinations of Kichler, Hadco, and Beachside. All good, all somewhat pricey. We must have used a dozen different companies before we weeded them out on the basis of reliability [replacing defective fixtures plus service calls]. Now we've standardized on those three, often mix-and-match.

We have Kichler path lighting along the front walk and the walk in the back as far as the second deck. Doesn't light stuff beyond the paths, but does that very well. Also have a couple of spots on garden features, and uplighting on about three trees. Must admit, if your dog lived here, I wouldn't be able to see her - unless she was on the paths!

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!
