For this private residence in Omaha, Nebraska, McKay
Landscape Lighting (www.mckaylighting.com), also of
Omaha, had installed Nightscaping fixtures with halogen
lamps back in July of 2000, and had serviced the client's
landscape lighting on an annual basis.
Above: The original 2000 lighting installation included only one fixture per tree, but
the growth of the trees, such as the blue spruce (back) and the Quaking aspens
(forward) now require 2 LED fixtures each. The deciduous trees and spruces are
illuminated by 8-watt LEDs, the brightness equivalent of 50-watt halogens.
Left: The 120-volt can lights on the corners of the home left the home's three roof
peaks dark. Auroralight copper spotlights (AL16) along the front of the home helped
illuminate those rooflines. Other house façade lighting is via 8-watt LEDs. MR-16 LED
lamps uplight a crabapple (left) and a serviceberry (right). The front walk and back
patio have copper path lights (PL4) with LED G4 bi-pin lamps.
