I have purchased a Transformer from Unique 1120SSSL to replace my Hampton Bay el cheapo transformer, (thanks Joey for talking me into the purchase, the transformer is very well built and should serve me well until I upgrade my el cheapo lights). Using what I have now (Malibu Metal Lights) I would like to illuminate my house and would like some input from some professionals. I understand my results may not be the best they could be using the lights I have but would still like to try my best while I absorb the cost of the transformer (Ouch). I am planning to change the landscape in the front left by removing the large privet hedges, butterfly bush and replacing them with a shorter slower growing Indian Hawthorne with some dwarf hollies in front of them. On either side of the garage I plan on adding 2 Italian cypress or those taller hollies (Name slips me). The red ovals are the spots (4 of them) and the red dots are path lights (4 of them). As you can see this leaves the front porch very dark. I would like to illuminate these maples but I am unsure if a tree light would be the correct way or up lighting from a ground spot/flood light. I appreciate everyones input, but don't be too hard on me! Don't mind the lawn, I was attacked by grubs this season and the grass is slowly recovering. With the county in a water ban situation I don't think there is much I can do to speed up the process.
