Hi guys, I have really enjoyed the posts. I am jealous of your ability to use your creativity and work outside with your hands. Grass is always greener. I am a DIYer until I can afford to redo the backyard and put in the pool. Until then I have decided to put in some lighting but ran into a snag. I can't figure out how to properly light this bush combo. I would love to back light but its so thick the light gets lost. I'm sure this is not to difficult but I would greatly appreciate your artistic opinions.

Thanks

I would suggest you use one of our Area Enhancement fixtures for this application. By using a taller area light you can illuminate from the top down while also giving the surrounding area little more ambiant light.

sorry for how large that is. I tried to resize it but couldnt. But you get the idea. You can go shorter than what that light is. You probably could get away with a 36" stem....If I was to reccomend a light from our line it would be the Centaurus 6 w/ 36" Stem

I would also hide a 35 watt inground or bullet buried right down in the middle of that purple fountain grass and make that baby glow a real nice red along with the taller area light Joey suggested.
