FAQ of Low Voltage Pathway Lighting

Where are path lights usually installed?

Proper placement of path lights can significantly enhance the safety and aesthetics of your outdoor space. Here are some guidelines to help you place your path lights:

  1. Along Walkways and Driveways: The primary purpose of path lights is to illuminate walkways, driveways, and other areas where people might walk. These lights should be installed at regular intervals on either side of the path to ensure sufficient illumination for safe navigation.
  2. Near Stairs and Steps: If there are stairs or steps in your outdoor space, installing path lights near them can help prevent accidents and improve visibility.
  3. Around Patios and Decks: Path lights can also be used to define the perimeters of patios, decks, or other outdoor living spaces. This not only enhances safety but also adds a decorative touch.
  4. Garden Features: If you have a garden or yard, consider installing path lights near features you'd like to highlight, such as flower beds, fountains, or statues.
  5. At Entrances and Exits: For safety and convenience, it's a good idea to install path lights near all entrances and exits to your home.

When installing path lights, consider their height and direction. Ideally, the lights should be low to the ground and angled downward to avoid glare. The goal is to subtly illuminate the path without overpowering the overall landscape design. Also, remember to space the lights appropriately for a balanced look - not too close that it looks like an airport runway, and not too far that the path isn't properly lit.

How do I know the number of path lights I need?

Determining the number of path lights you need depends on various factors, including the length of your path, the illumination range of your fixtures, and the lighting effect you want to achieve. Here are some specific parameters and guidelines to help you determine the quantity:

  1. Spacing Between Lights: Generally, path lights should be installed approximately every 10 feet (about 3 meters). However, this distance can be adjusted based on your specific fixtures and the lighting effect you aim to create. If your lights have a broad illumination range or if you want a more subtle lighting effect, you might be able to space them further apart. Conversely, if your lights have a smaller illumination range or if you want a more dramatic lighting effect, you might need to place them closer together.
  2. Path Length: You can calculate the number of lights you need based on the length of your path and the spacing between lights. For example, if your path is 50 feet (about 15 meters) long, and you plan to install a light every 10 feet (about 3 meters), then you would need 5 lights.
  3. Lighting Effect: Consider the lighting effect you want to achieve. If you want a soft, inviting lighting effect, you may not need as many lights. On the other hand, if you want to illuminate the entire path brightly, you may need more lights.

Gardenreet hat-shaped path lights have an illumination range of about 12 feet, and modern L-shaped path lights have an illumination range of about 10 feet.

The above guidelines serve as a starting point for choosing the number of path lights, but you should adjust based on your specific needs and preferences. Before you install the lights, you might need to experiment and adjust to find the setup that suits you best.

How to better install path lights?

Designing the layout for path lighting involves more than just determining where lights should go; it's about creating a well-lit, inviting space that enhances safety and highlights your landscape's features. Here are some tips:

  1. Illuminate for Safety: The primary purpose of path lights is to safely guide people along walkways, steps, and around obstacles. Ensure you install lights where they are most needed to prevent tripping hazards, like at elevation changes or near landscaping that encroaches on the path.
  2. Avoid "Runway" Effect: While it might seem logical to place lights directly opposite each other along the path, this can create an unwelcoming "runway" effect. Instead, stagger lights along the path to create more inviting, visually appealing illumination.
  3. Highlight Features: Use path lights to highlight garden features, like plants or architectural elements, to add depth and interest to your landscape at night.
  4. Consider Light Spread: The size of your lights and their light spread can influence how far apart they should be placed. Typically, lights are spaced about 10 feet apart, but those with a larger light spread may be spaced further, while those with a smaller spread might need to be closer.
  5. Blend with Landscape: Choose lights that match your landscape's style and integrate them into the design rather than making them the focal point. The goal is for the light to stand out, not the light fixture.
  6. Create Balance: Consider the overall lighting balance in your landscape. Combine path lighting with other lighting techniques, like spotlighting, uplighting, or downlighting, to create depth and balance.
  7. Pre-Planning: Before you start, sketch your pathway and its surrounding areas. Indicate where each light will go, considering the spacing, visibility, and aesthetic aspects.
  8. Experiment: Lastly, experiment with your lighting. Take a flashlight outside in the evening and try different lighting positions and techniques to see how they look before installing your path lights. This will give you a good sense of how to achieve the best lighting effects for your specific landscape.
Why choose brass path lights?

Choosing brass path lights for your outdoor space comes with several benefits, making them an attractive option for many homeowners and landscape professionals:

  1. Durability and Weather Resistance: Brass is a robust material that can withstand various weather conditions, including rain, snow, and high temperatures. It doesn’t rust or corrode easily, which makes it an ideal material for outdoor fixtures that are exposed to the elements.
  2. Aesthetic Appeal: Brass has a classic and timeless look that can add an elegant touch to any outdoor space. As it ages, it develops a natural patina, which many find aesthetically pleasing and can add character to your garden or pathway.
  3. Low Maintenance: Brass path lights require very little maintenance. They don’t need to be painted or treated, and their natural aging process can actually enhance their appearance over time.
  4. Quality and Craftsmanship: Brass fixtures are often associated with high quality and craftsmanship. They tend to be sturdier and well-made compared to some alternatives made from cheaper materials.
  5. Value: While brass path lights may be more expensive upfront compared to alternatives made from plastic or aluminum, their durability and low maintenance needs can make them a more cost-effective choice in the long run.
  6. Versatility: Brass lights can complement various landscape designs, from classic to modern. Their warm tones work well with natural materials like stone and wood, but can also add a touch of elegance to more contemporary settings.

Considering these benefits, brass path lights are a solid investment for those looking to enhance the beauty of their outdoor spaces while ensuring the lights will withstand the test of time.

Is a transformer included?

The transformer is not included in the light fixture, it is only included in some landscape lighting kits and you have to buy it separately.

How many lights can be used in one transformer?

Depends on the power of the transformer and the bulbs, while the electrical energy will inevitably lose 20% of the voltage during transmission.
For example, if the transformer is 150W and each bulb is 3W, then 40 fixtures can be installed (150 x 80% ÷ 3).

Does this kit include wiring? If so how many feet?

All landscape lighting kits include wire, which is 100 to 250 feet in length.

Can these fixtures be used with rgb-w multiple color bulbs?

Yes, rgb bulbs are also applicable.
