Garden lights.Lighting will not only make the garden look more attractive, but also ensure safe communication after dark and convenient connection to electric power tools. Of course, the location and type of great points will depend primarily on the size of the garden and the form of its development. If we decide to use the services of a landscape architect, he will also design lighting and select functional and effective lamps. However, if we ourselves deal with planning the lighting of the property, in addition already developed, we must first focus on the technical conditions for the implementation of such an installation. The most important thing will be to decide on the lighting supply voltage and placing the cables on the surface or in the ground, or even in a pond.
Floor garden lights
Floor lamps – the easiest to install, thanks to leading the wires above the ground .
Can be powered by mains voltage (which enables power supply from the garden equipment socket)
Lamps embedded in the ground or in a hardened surface, the so-called overrun can also be powered in this way,
but it complicates their connection and poses a potential risk of a puncture. It is better to
supply them with reduced voltage, which is necessary to power the lighting in the pond.
Of course, you can choose a mixed system with a voltage of 240 .
by installing in the field as needed step down transformers in selected circuits.
Installation of garden lights
In an extensive installation, we should also plan a way to control it, allowing for independent switching on of lighting in a separate area. A significant convenience and reduction of operating costs is the use of LED light sources that are adapted to both voltages.
