About Landscape Lighting Transformers
Landscape lighting isn't just about illuminating your home – it's about adding beauty, highlighting that favorite plant or decorative feature in your yard, creating an inviting space for evening actives and welcoming guests to your home all with the added benefit of security. When considering landscape lighting it is important to remember that you don't want to create a runway affect by adding too much light or too uniform a design. The goal is to add soft, ambient lighting in key areas – this will allow you to see your landscape clearly by illuminating hazards and dark corners in an artistic manner. By utilizing different styles of landscape lighting such as path lights, step lights, spot lights and in-ground well lights you can create a subtle oasis of beauty in the night.
When selecting landscape lighting for your home, the first decision you will need to make is whether you want line voltage landscape lighting or low voltage landscape lighting. A line voltage system can be a bit complicated and in most cases, will require an electrician to install and set up. A low voltage landscape system is much easier to maintain and can often be a great weekend DIY project with a little bit of homework and the right tools.
Choosing the right transformer is a key element of your landscape lighting system. You will want to first determine how many and what types of lights you want and how many watts each landscape light will require to operate. Once you determine the total watts for your landscape system, you can then select a transformer large enough to operate all of the lights while still leaving some wattage unused for future additions to your lay out. There are other factors to consider such as whether you will have a single run or multiple runs; this will be determined by the overall size of your property. If you have a smaller lot, you will likely be able to run all of your landscape lights on a single line or port but for larger lots, you will need to utilize a multi-tap transformer to accommodate multiple runs.
