How does low voltage lighting work?
Landscape lighting works through a combination of transformers, conductors, and lamps. Transformers reduce the power to 12-volts, requiring less energy to run. The conductors are the wiring supplied with each light. The wires are buried no less than 12” in the ground. Using the correct size wiring can make the difference between poorly designed and a professionally lit system. Choosing the right lamps is a vital part of the process. Customers may choose from a wide variety of shapes, sizes, colors, and styles to perfectly match the landscape.
