Installing Landscape Lighting 11/3/19 – gtg

Landscape Lighting Installation

Installing landscape lighting in your yard and garden is one of the most important parts of having a beautifully landscaped area you and your friends can enjoy!

After you have decided to include landscape lighting in your plan for your yard or garden, you must consider the type of lighting that best fits your lifestyle!

If you are a person who likes things to be done easily or likes to change the look of your garden frequently, you should probably use solar landscape lights. These are easy to install since all you need for power is sunlight! You can learn a bit more about solar landscape lighting installation here!

If you have a very shaded yard, you should choose low voltage landscape lighting! These are a bit more difficult because:

they require you to have an electric power source

they require a transformer to convert your house power to 12 volt power

they have wires and cords that you must decide how to hide

most likely you will need to remember to turn them on and off

120 V is available for Outdoor Lighting

You can buy some landscape lighting that uses 120 volt power. 120 volt power is what is used in your home’s grid. These include rope lights and string lights! All these require for installation is a plan, a ladder, an extension cord, a power outlet, and someone to hang the lights. Of landscape lighting that is run on electricity, these are probably the simplest to install!

The downside of these lights is the necessity of checking your cords often to make sure they are not being damaged by the weather or rodents.

Low Voltage Landscape Lighting Installation

Installing landscape lighting that is low voltage is a bit more difficult. For this type of lighting, you will need to install low voltage lighting transformers! A transformer plugs into your home’s power grid and changes the voltage from 120 volts to 12 volts. Most electric powered landscape lighting is low voltage, so a good transformer is a necessity!

When installing landscape lighting, you will need to take into account the wires and cords and how you will hide them. After all, you don’t want unsightly cords running across your garden! Hiding them isn’t terribly difficult. All you need to do is dig a trench 4 to 6 inches deep for the cords to lie in.

Wiring lights yourself? Our wiring landscape lighting guide might be of some use to you.

When using low voltage lights in your garden, you will either need to remember to turn them on and off or you can attach a timer to the transformer that will take care of that for you!

Wanting some security lighting? Consider installing a motion sensor light! These are the best kinds of lights for security out there.

Now that you know your options, let’s look a bit deeper into installing landscape lighting!

Let the Outdoor Lighting Pro’s do it

As always, if you are not comfortable working with electricity, please contact a licensed electrician to install your transformer!

He should be able to instruct you on how to add more lines into your transformer safely! You should always plan out your lighting design on paper before you begin installing landscape lighting. This ensures you get the proper amount of lights for your garden. It will also show you what type of lighting you will need. Assuming you are going to need low voltage landscape lighting, here is what you will need to begin:

You will need a good, low voltage transformer. Make sure you get one that is adequate for your needs. These come in several different sizes to ensure you get the proper one for your garden.

You will want to buy your lights. Make sure you buy low voltage lights, if that is what you are installing. Most landscape lights are low voltage, but check to be sure.

Enough cord or wire to reach to all areas of your garden.

Junction boxes for each zone of your lights.

Splicers for adding lines into the main line to your transformer. Make sure not to overload one cell of the transformer. It is better to have more lines than to overload the transformer causing a breaker to switch.

A good timer to install on your transformer if you want the lights to automatically come on at a specific time.

A sturdy shovel to dig a small trench with. Most homeowners already have this so you may not have to buy one! It is also good to have someone with a strong back to work this piece of equipment!

After installing your transformer, installing landscape lighting is fairly easy!

Following the plan you made on paper, start by laying out the lights on the ground where you are going to want them placed. After you have them all laid out, check to see if they are going to give you the coverage you want. If not, move them around until you like the effects!

If you are not going to be finished in one day, it may be helpful to place flags where the lights are going to be. That way your lights are not laying on the ground overnight where they can be damaged by being stepped on.

Now that you know where the lights are going to be, start digging a shallow trench, 4 to 6 inches deep, for laying the cords in. You will have 1 main cord coming from the transformer. Your light’s cords will wire into this main cable. You will want to make sure that you can put this cord where it will be hidden or underground to avoid damage, either by weather or other things that can damage your wire.

Try to place the transformer in a spot where you will have few obstacles to get around. You don’t want to try to dig into a sidewalk, for example!

Following your plan, installing landscape lighting should be fairly easy. You may want to plot out where you are going to dig ahead of time. Remember that you will have voltage drop if your line is too long, has too many fixtures connected to it, and what gauge cord you are using.

To avoid a large voltage drop, you should group your fixtures into distance zones. This means your lights that are 100 feet from the transformer should be grouped into 1 cord. You should group into short distance (0-25 feet), medium distance (26-50 feet), long-medium distance (51-75 feet), and long distance (76-100 feet).

Then you should centralize your cable and then run branches from the fixtures into it! You should try to avoid daisy-chaining, which is having fixtures tying into the central cable in a straight line! This avoids as much voltage loss as possible. If you must daisy-chain because of where your lights are located, try to use no more than 3 fixtures per line!

Using these techniques, you should dig a trench to a central location for the lighting zone. Then you will want to install a junction box. Dig trenches to each lighting fixture from the junction box. Run your cord from the lighting fixture to the junction box. Attach the cord using the instructions that came with your lights or junction boxes.

You will want to make sure that each light fixture will receive 11.5 to 11.75 volts of power for the best light. Most junction boxes will tell you how to figure this out so you know how many lights per cable run you can use and still have plenty of voltage for a perfect glow!

While this sounds complicated, installing landscape lighting is relatively easy. Once you have one zone completed, the next one will be easier!

Of course, if you don’t like working with electricity, or simply don’t have the time to do it safely, please don’t hesitate to call a licensed electrician! They are trained to do this work safely!

Although it takes a bit of work, and a bunch of planning, installing landscape lighting will give your yard or garden that special touch that says it is definitely you!

Follow These Pest Control Tips For Crickets

Crickets can be real pests, particularly because the chirping can get annoying. Crickets also create damage to plants, seeds of grain crop, stored tubers and fruits, and baler twine. When they enter the house, they might damage clothing, furniture upholstery, draperies etc. since they are extremely fond of cotton, silk, wool and even rayon and nylon.

Mole crickets days

They also eat on paper products. Crickets can be controlled by using pest control insecticides like bendiocarb (Ficam D), chlorpyrifos (Dursban, Duration, Empire, Engage), diatomaceous earth (Answer), propoxur (Baygon), diazinon, pyrethrins, or resmethrin. Drione or Boric Acid and additional dust products can be used to treat wall voids and crawl spaces. Granular bait like Larvalur or Niban can also be used both indoor and outdoor. Some basic outdoor insecticides that can be used are; cyfluthrin (Tempo), cypermethrin (Demon, Cynoff, Cyper-Active), Ficam W or Plus, propetamphos (Safrotin) lambdacyhalothrin (Commadore), or permethrin (Dragnet, Flee).

One way to control crickets is to prebait before they take over the lawn. A chemical treatment program, started early enough, is also effective. Maxforce Granules is an effective pre-bait chemical that is sprinkled around the yard before a rain. Crickets feeding on these granules would die immediately. However, this is effective only if the crickets have not yet established themselves in the yard. If there are cricket nests already, regular chemical treatment once a month for at least three months is necessary. Orthene Turf WP and Talstar Granules are other popularly used products for controlling crickets. These pest control chemicals are also available in concentrated liquid form, dusts, wettable powders and aerosol forms.

To keep mole crickets from entering the house, avoid use of bright lights outside since crickets are attracted to bright lights; seal any cracks in the around doors, windows and in the walls and floors; keep the area in and around the home dry and clean since mole crickets prefer moist environments; ensure that low-growing vegetation is planted at least 12 inches away from the house; sprinkle cricket baits available in the market; sticky traps can be used to trap crickets, which can then be flushed down the toilet or destroyed; take the help of a good pest control business if the problem with crickets is uncontrollable.

Installing plant life on any landscape takes a lot of time because plant growth is a slow process. Trees particularly take long to reach maturity.

Tree removal becomes necessary in cases where property owners want to plant new trees, create lawns, paths, car parks, driveways, walkways, or to make way for construction of new structures. Commercial and residential property owners can handle some tree removal exercises. But some cases are intricate, and they require the services of a professional arborist. It is advisable to seek the services of an arborist to prevent costly mistakes that can lead to property damage or injuries.

Such trees could fall on houses, cars, or people and cause great damage or injuries. We handle a wide array of projects, and I believe that “no job is too small!”

​In your search to find the perfect tree for your property, you may come across the Bradford pear. You may also already have one or two of these trees on your property. It seems like the ideal ornamental tree: it grows quickly, has a nice, symmetrical shape, and is adorned with breathtaking white blossoms every spring. But like many things in nature, the Bradford pear’s beauty is deceiving. In addition to emitting a horrendous odor while blossoming, this tree can actually be quite dangerous—to itself, to your property, and even to the environment.

Bradford pear trees became popular in the United States during the 1960s, when government scientists adapted them from Chinese Callery pears to create a non-breeding (fruitless), ornamental tree. For several years, these trees began to line residential streets and commercial properties all over the country. As time passed, however, it was discovered that this tree with only a 20-year lifespan rarely survived even that long. Due to their rapid growth, Bradford pears’ branches don’t take enough time to strengthen at their joints, creating weak crotches that are almost guaranteed to break apart under the right conditions.

Most Bradford pears meet their end due to wind, rain, snow, or ice, and they are known for taking windows, roofs, and cars out with them. Google “Bradford pear tree” and alongside the images of beautiful foliage, you will also see many photos of fallen limbs or even trees split entirely in half. That was a Bradford pear. If that’s not enough to convince you not to plant a Bradford pear, their impact on the environment might be.

The Bradford pear was developed to not breed, and it doesn’t—at least, not with other Bradford pears. But once they were planted all over the place, they began to cross-breed with other species of pear trees, and the result was a new breed of viciously thorny trees that sprout up among native trees and choke the life out of them. They are nearly impossible to remove and may destroy acres of agricultural and forest land.

Their dangers have caused Bradford pears to be completely banned from some cities, and where they aren’t banned, they aren’t sold by honest, reputable nurseries. Fortunately, there are many safer options for beautiful, flowering trees to plant on your property, and a certified arborist can help you find and plant the perfect one.

If you already have a Bradford pear on your property, you would be doing our native environment a favor by calling a tree removal service such as ours to help take it down.

Trees grow in countless varieties all over the world, and their beauty is undeniable. But if you need more reasons to plant a tree on your property, here are just a few of the benefits they offer.

They’re Good for Your Home

Planting your trees in the right places can make a world of difference in the comfort of your home. Trees planted on the west side of the house can protect it from the hot afternoon sun, keeping each room pleasantly cool through the summer. They’ll also soothe your winter woes by blocking icy winds and keeping your home considerably warmer. According to The Arbor Day Foundation, people tend to stay longer in homes with trees, which just goes to show how much happier trees can make a home!

They’re Good for Your Wallet

Keeping your house at a naturally more comfortable temperature also means keeping your heat and cooling on a more affordable setting year-round. The Center for Urban Forest Research determined that a properly placed, mature tree could save you as much as 12% on your energy bills! Property values also rise when landscaping includes trees, so when you’re ready to sell and move on, you’ll discover that your trees were a worthwhile investment.

They’re Good for the Environment

There’s a reason people plant trees on Earth Day—they’re just good for the environment! In addition to helping you use less energy in your home, they also absorb pollution and release tons of oxygen into the environment each year. Trees are also vital to the quality of our water. They create a natural barrier for runoff and erosion of soil, keeping groundwater and streams clear of pollutants. No matter who you are, trees are sure to have an impact on your life. So if you’re still on the fence about whether to plant, here’s our advice: the world can always use more trees!
