Premium Outdoor Lighting Transformers

Have you ever thought about how your outdoor lighting is powered?  Once Greatscapes by R&R Landscaping, Inc. installs your Coastal Source landscape lighting, we will then connect it to a transformer.  There are 4 different types of transformers that we can use with your premium outdoor lighting project.  After we conduct the initial walk around your property, our technician will then determine which transformer will work best. 

When choosing a transformer there are different things Greatscapes by R&R Landscaping, Inc. will keep in mind. For example, how many fixtures will we be installing (wattage), will the transformer be above or below the ground, and will the client want to control the time of day the fixtures will be on and off.

After we complete the above tasks, we will then choose from one of the following transformers:

  • 150W Composite:  Greatscapes by R&R Landscaping, Inc. will use this transformer with smaller outdoor lighting projects (up to 25 3W fixtures).  It comes with a built-in photocell and manual timer, which will allow you to control all of your lighting needs.
  • Direct burial:  Available in 150W or 300W, we will be burying the transformer below the ground, and it will remain completely out of sight.  If you want to control when your lights will be on/off, you will need to purchase a timer or photocell separately. 
  • Anodized aluminum: This 300W transformer is heavy-duty and does not require maintenance due to the fact that all of the connections are enclosed and protected in epoxy.  They are tough and built to last.  They come with a built-in photocell and a timer would need to be purchased separately if you desire that feature.
  • Hatch 60W:  We will use this transformer only when we install a security tri-mount fixture.  It is specifically made to supply power to the two outdoor lighting fixtures and a non-Coastal Source timer.

Greatscapes by R&R Landscaping, Inc. has an experienced luxury outdoor lighting team, and they will make sure the correct transformer is chosen for your project.  Please visit our website at www.r-rlandscaping.com for more information.

Discrete Outdoor Lighting

Greatscapes by R&R Landscaping, Inc., understands that not everyone likes their outdoor lighting completely visible.  Some people want a discrete, but powerful, landscape lighting fixture.  In that case, we would install the Coastal Source niche premium outdoor lighting fixture.  The niche light is designed specifically to illuminate outdoor areas, without calling attention to the fixture itself.  It is small enough (less than 1 inch thick) to fit into spaces where the conventional path light could not be used.  Because of its size, the niche light has an advantage over other exterior lighting fixtures and can be installed almost anywhere.

Some examples of niche outdoor lighting applications are:

  • Step risers or treads
  • The edges of a path or walkway
  • Around a pool or a deck
  • Down lighting a tree or other structure
  • Up lighting a small bush or plant

With multiple trims and finishes available, the niche light can be customized to suit your specific needs.  For more information about how Greatscapes by R&R Landscaping, Inc. can transform your property, visit our premium outdoor lighting page at www.r-rlandscaping.com.

Coastal Source Specialty Outdoor Lighting, Take 2

Greatscapes by R&R Landscaping, Inc

Last week in the Greatscapes by R&R Landscaping, Inc. blog, we described four of the specialty outdoor lighting fixtures from Coastal Source.  Today, our blog will discuss other specialty outdoor lighting fixtures, also available through Coastal Source. 

Well Light:  The well light is an extremely low-profile, outdoor lighting fixture, that can accommodate up to a 9W bulb.  It makes it easy to up light a very tall object while staying close to the ground.  The well light is completely enclosed within the 100% brass escutcheon, which fully protects the lamp.

Tiki Torch:  Coastal Source’s tiki torch differs from other tiki torches within the industry.  The fixtures have a sealed LED bulb, as well as a fuel chamber and wick.  This allows you to enjoy illumination all year long, even during the Winter months.

Hanging Tree Light:  The hanging tree light is a great way to accomplish beautiful down lighting from any size tree or structure.  Simply attach a Coastal Source connector cable and hang from a branch, or use the mount accessory to install at the top of a pergola.

COASTAL SOURCE SPECIALTY OUTDOOR LIGHTING FIXTURES

Aside from the more commonly used landscape lighting fixtures (bullet lights and path lights), Coastal Source also has multiple specialty fixtures to help you achieve all of your outdoor lighting needs. Greatscapes by R&R Landscaping, Inc. installs all of them.  Today, we will discuss the wash light, MR16 Uniball tree light, lip light.

Wash Light: The wash light fixture is used to illuminate a wider space while only using one fixture.  Examples applications are: the side of a building, a mature hosta, and a driveway.  You can choose between a 2.5/4 watt or a 5/8/10 watt setting. 

MR16 Uniball Tree Light: The tree light is designed to be used for downlighting a larger, more mature tree.  By having only one screw, there is less damage and stress to the tree when the fixture is installed.   

Lip Light:  Sometimes used in retainer walls, the lip light is designed for those hard to light areas.  The lip light is the perfect choice when added to an overhang, underneath a bench, or a stone staircase.

Step Light: Available in two styles, vertical and horizontal, the step light is utilized when adding a low level of illumination to steps or walls. 

In next week’s blog, we will discuss more specialty landscape lighting fixtures offered by Coastal Source.  With so many options available in premier outdoor lighting, Greatscapes by R&R Landscaping, Inc will find the right one for you.
