    Hey guys. I am still pretty green to hardscaping, so this question may come off as a stupid question... What are you guys using for lighting on seat walls and risers? The only lighting that I have done for hardscapes has been lanterns on top of columns. I have tried looking them up online, but the prices seem a little outrageous.
    I have done many patios and pillars, but have honestly never had a client go for any additional lighting.
    What do you guys use? What do you feel is the most budget oriented?

    Integral lighting was the original, but now Cast, Unique and everybody has a version of the same thing.

    I use cast, very easy to install but not cheap...we did something like 8 fixtures for a little seating wall and it came out to about $1,500. I believe cast is the only light you can change the bulb on the fixture withought having to pop the cap off and place a new fixture in

    Three others that readily come to mind are Vista, Kichler and Troy. I have used alot of Vista and Unique. Most of these mentioned have the ability to change out the lamp. Kichler model is LED and warrantied for 15 years and very comparable in price to others. Only problem is you must take into consideration, with your design, how to replace the entire fixture at some point down the road. You are correct they are spendy for what you get but clients love them and are willing to pay for them. I have a few photos of Vista I installed on my site if you care to look. Any questions let me know. Good Luck!

    have a look at integral, also take a look at unique lighting they have a new 24volt system that is really appealing.
