    How about some links to sites with good info on landscape lighting.

    Perhaps, sources of reliable informoation on installation, types, tips, and supplies for necessary, tools, and equipment.

    Ive been thinking about getting into landscape lighting installation, and would like to try it on my yard frist to see what all is involved but at this point I really dont know anything about it.

    If you need some help designing let me know. Working in the lighting industry for 5 years. Talk the guys over at Rexels they are good. low voltage lighting easy to put in. the only hard part is if you want to hard wire into the house.

    Hey salopez

    If you have been in the industry for 5 years you must have found fixtures that you love and fixtures that you just don't like. Why do you like or dislike the product. Are you stuck on a certain brand. Your insight could be very helpful.

    I am a big fan of Hinkley lighting, and some the new Hunter stuff is nice. Baldwin for line voltage stuff. There is lots out there, depends on the style you are looking for and how much you want to spend. Malibu and Paridise are good starter sets.

    Thanks for the reply salopez. I mainly install copper, brass, or bronze fixtures.
    Last few installs have been with Cast lighting. Also use FX, a few SPJ fixtures, and some Vista sealed in-grounds occasionally. Here on the coast I can't install aluminum. Looks like the Hinkley is mainly aluminum. Don't do any line voltage.

    By the way, when you run low voltage into a house, do you use conduit for the low voltage wiring. Some say NEC requires it and others say no.
