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.
