RI,
I do know of Escort lighting. Please send me a pic of this project, and I will be happy to take a look. 18 path lights? That sounds like way too many. As long as there are tall trees in the area, I would go that way. Remember, when you attach the wire to the trees, use zip ties instead of staples. The zip ties with the hole at the end will allow the wire to move a little as the tree grows and sways. You also have to check it every year to make sure that the tree does not grow around the wire. Use stainless steel screws as well, this will not harm the tree.

I meant 13 accent lights and 5 pathway lights. I took the pic today and will post tomorrow.

I assume you do a demo when on a sales lead... How elaborate do you go on the demo.. I usually will limit it to 10 accents and no pathway lights. Should I change that.

I haven't had a need to demo. I take along a portfolio of my work and I give them a power point, that I created. That gives them a very good idea of what I can do for them. It also points out my qualifications without me having to actually say it to them. I also point them to my web site. If they don't want to use me after all of that, they are probably going to use the cheap guy, and that's fine with me.

Good Evening everyone!
For someone who doesnt have the previous jobs under his belt would a Demo kit be something to buy or asemble and use? Do u think it would work to attach some fixtures to chunks of plywood so they can be moved around. Lets hear what some of u have done. Thanks!

Demo to me is a lighting system you would install at the owners property but you just have the wire above ground.
