Just got a call that the HOA wants my pathlights lowered 4" on a job I completed this spring. No biggie but it's over 100 pathlights. Uplighting is prohibited so spread lights 20' apart are the only form of lighting allowed. The height is 22" from ground to top of fixture top. My understanding was from ground to where light emits which would have put me in compliance at 18". They say 18" overall fixture height regardless of where light emits. Try arguing with these groups.
