    A few quick pics from tonight. Everything looks pretty bleak right now, but come spring and summer all of these beds are loaded with Hosta, ferns, bleeding hearts and tons and tons of other color. Can't wait to get some better pics then when everything is "alive". Also, these pics turned out a little fuzzy. It wasn't until I got home that I noticed that the ISO on my camera was set to 1600 when it should have been on 100 or 200. Oh well, gonna shoot again next summer anyway.

    All lamps are Illumicare LEDs.

    What a cool area! Make sure you post again in the Spring/Summer.
    Do you mind sharing which LED (power and beam spread) for the tree lights and the mounting height? Thanks.

    sure, I used the Illumicare 2x- 30 degree over the steps and the 2x-45 degree everywhere else. Mounting height is between 25-30' high. CAST downlights.

    On a side note, I have been very pleased with the Illumicare LEDs so far. For some reason I wasn't thinking I was going to get that much spread with them, but they are a true wide spread LED. I may change out to narrower beam spreads, I was hoping for a little more contrast between the lit areas instead of total washout. It will look different when all the dark green foliage is covering the ground though. I'll have to take a look then and make a determination on how to change it.

    Thanks Tim. I will be mounting two Cast integrated LED tree lights this week.
    The first work with tree lights for me. (Actually a tree service is doing the climbing for me.) I wasn't sure whether to use the high or low setting: 290 vs. 390 lumens from about 30 ft. up. I want the light to be subtle.

    Too bad Steve Parrott isn't here to advise. I don't think he has posted since the recent brouhaha.

    Well, 290 will definitely be more subtle. It just depends on what you are lighting and how high up you are I guess. I need to buy a 40' ladder so I can get up in those trees a bit higher. I would like to get them between 30-40' up to catch some branch shadows. Wouldn't have mattered on these ones though. The first branches are 40+ feet up or higher.

    Good luck on your lights, let me know how it goes.
