Just curious as to how most people are placing their lights on tight topiary (sp) trees. Im on a job right now where they have anchored in the corners of the house with Foster Hollies and the foundation bed itself doesn't have a whole lot of room. The Foster Holly doesn't really give great results on vertical uplighting from the base as the light just seems to get swallowed up as soon as it hits the the foliage. It's not providing great results from the dripline either because of it's conical structure. It's almost as if I should be hitting it from a distance of greater magnitude, but it would just about put the light in the grass and would probably give me a much greater wide light on the house than I want. Am I better suited just uplighting the trunk vertically and then attempting some type of structural downlighting? I just really am not crazy about the results im getting and wondering what others have done with specifically the foster holly variety and or the single trunk crape myrtle with the wide canopy.
