    Next project the client is requesting the crepes be wrapped in LED string lights. I am hoping to find some quality ones in low voltage since there is already a bullet light there we intend to remove for this. It will be a permanent installation and not just seasonal. We are trying to keep from having to run line voltage to each of the 4 locations as they are quite far apart and will require extensive work. 12vac would certainly be preferred here.

    Any ideas or suggestions ? pics of similar installs ? There is one in his sub division done like this but unfortunately every time I go by the lights are off. Would really like to deliver and please this client.

    I've seen 12v LED rope light but not string (Christmas mini) lights.

    yes mini lights. Looks like we need to run line voltage to each location then.

    I've seen line voltage LED string Christmas lights by Phillips, and I've seen Nightscaping's Miniborder and Microborder lights, but I've never seen a hybrid. Not a bad idea.

    Rare chance for me to contribute.

    Check the color of the lights before you install. I put HD LED icicles on the gutters and I didn't see minis there so I went to Lowes. Their lights were a different brand and more of a warm color as opposed to the very blue white of the icicles. If I hadn't already hung the icicles I would have returned them and made sure the colors look consistent. I found C-5s on another shelf at HD from the same mfg.
