April 2017 49 For this private residence in Omaha, Nebraska, McKay Landscape Lighting (, 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 fa├žade 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.
