    Hey Nightscape Paul!



    just taking you up on your offer for advice...:canadaflag:

    Viking Landscape Lighting here from Barrie Ontario Canada, just read your post about wishing to help any new fellas! ("Make my day! )

    So yeah, on the artistic side I think I can cover that, I am actually really good, but fully realize HAVE to kow my products! And what they can/cannot do!

    So onto the install.....(this I have never done)
    I have looked @ Vista and Frog lights....seen product, seen the transformers and have a vauge idea of how to match the right T to the lights and distance of run...I guess this Q is kinda hard to answer on a forum, but say I had the follwing job to do...(note vista products)

    2 nice path lights on short walkway..
    4204
    Lamp Type: T3
    Max. Wattage: 20 W
    Material: Aluminum

    2 spots on 2 trees
    2201
    Max. Wattage: 20 W
    Material: Aluminum

    and 2 of these cascading up on the brick
    5261
    Lamp Type: MR-16
    Max. Wattage: 50 W
    Material: Aluminum

    and 2 of these @ each side of front of driveway giving soft ref points of drveway loc as it meets street....(ths run down each side is 30')
    5270
    Lamp Type: MR-16
    Max. Wattage: 50 W
    Material: Composite


    Say the total run is about 150' ish...
    what would be the (as you say) the "right way" to put this together?

    So you have 4 x 20W

    and 4 X 50w..

    total is 280w in lighting fixtures....

    I am unsure from here.....

    tks...
