or adding path lights can usually be done relatively quickly and will provide a dramatic difference immediately. Smaller projects like these can often be achieved in one day on your own or with guidance from your local lighting showroom. For larger projects or properties with multiple areas or sloped lawns, enlisting the help of a lighting professional is recommended. Their knowledge of employing the correct ratio of lumens, beam spreads, lighting controls and proper layering techniques will make for a sophisticated design plan that is also energy-efficient. Take the time to research their portfolio of work and talk candidly about your goals and expectations. Larger projects require research and expert recommendations regarding the layout and installation to ensure it’s done properly.

TECH NIQU ES CMON, ADMIT IT! We all do it: on an evening drive or leisurely walk after dinner it is fun to admire the welcoming glow of different homes and their landscaping. What makes one house stand out from the others? It’s often the remarkable effect of well-placed landscape lighting. Here is every need-to-know method for lighting up the night and making your home the talk of the block:

<

UPLIGHTING

Uplighting is illuminating an area, surface or object from below to create a focal point in the landscape. CREATING THIS EFFECT : A spot light is aimed at the tree in the fore-

ground while the front of the home remains relatively dark.

< WALL WASHING Wall washing is a technique that refers to the general illumination of a wall or surface. CREATING THIS EFFECT : Spot lights are placed along the front of the

home to create a soft wash of light.

Also called backlighting, silhouetting is used to dramatize an interesting shaped object. CREATING THIS EFFECT : A spot light is placed between

the tree and the front of the home. The spot light is aimed at the front of the home creating a dramatic silhouette of the tree.

<

SHADOWING

Shadowing is an effect created by placing a light source in front of an object and projecting a shadow onto a surface behind the object. CREATING THIS EFFECT : Spot lights are placed directly in front of the tall

bushes, producing shadows which are projected on the home's face, creating an interesting and inviting façade.

GR AZING

S T R I D E R I G H T : Reduce the danger

Grazing emphasizes a textured surface (such as a tree trunk, a stone wall, climbing ivy, etc.) by placing a light source within one foot of that surface and aiming the light beam parallel to that surface. CREATING THIS EFFECT : Spot lights are placed beneath each stone

pillar to create dimension, complementing the home's entryway.

< PATH LIGHTING Path and area lighting is used to enhance dynamic landscaping elements such as flower beds, shrubbery and borders while safely illuminating pathways. CREATING THIS EFFECT : Path lights are staggered

around the walkway to create pools of light that illuminate a safe passage to the home's entrance.

DECK LIGHTING > Step, brick and hardscape lighting can be used in masonry and wood constructions. These fixtures are specifically designed to provide safety and accent lighting while creating a warm atmosphere. CREATING THIS EFFECT : A surface mounted deck sconce

is placed on the wall above each step to illuminate a safe entryway to the deck. A hardscape fixture under the bench, coupled with deck sconces mounted to the corner posts create a soft glow. NUVI HARDSCAPE COLLECTION

Nuvi fixtures feature exceptional dimmable horizontal illumination, perfect for diverse mounting applications. Available in three finishes, its solid vinyl alloy construction is suitable for harsh environments as well.

SPOT LIGHTS Spot lights are the go-to fixture to highlight elements of your landscape that add the most visual appeal, such as foliage, trees and architectural elements.

LUNA STEP LIGHT Available in 12V and 120V and a varitey of colors (both double and single gang), the Luna Step Light is a versatile way to safely illuminate areas of foot traffic both indoors and out. Also fully dimmable, these fixtures allow customization of light output with only 4w of power consumption.

GRAZING Grazing is a technique used to emphasize a textured surface or architectural element (such as a tree trunk, a stone wall, climbing ivy, etc.) by placing a light source within one foot of the surface and aiming the light beam parallel to that surface. This technique is most commonly accomplished with a spot light or well light.

STEP LIGHTING Step lighting is a safety must for outdoor zones with elevation elements, especially in areas without overhead illumination. Take the traffic pattern of your space into account to cover commonly used areas. STAIRWAY WIDTH step lights should be installed on the horizontal center of each riser, taking the fixture's louver angle into account for light reach. WIDE AREA WIDTH step lights are generally installed 4'-6' apart, depending on fixture width.

DECK LIGHTING Installing deck lights adds safety and illumination to your outdoor entertaining spaces. Fixtures are most often installed into the posts of a deck to provide proper light output around the perimeter.

OUTDOOR PENDANTS Outdoor chandeliers, exterior pendants and hanging lanterns can be used as a lighting source to illuminate and accent an outdoor dining space. A general guideline to follow is the same as interior fixtures, which is for the bottom of the fixture to sit 28"-34" above the table.

OUTDOOR FLUSH MOUNTS Flush mounts are the perfect lighting selection for second story balconies or overhangs to provide a nighttime glow.

OUTDOOR LANTERNS Lanterns mounted at a point of entry to the home provide safety, security, and a welcoming decorative element. In all cases, the center of the light source should rest about 66" above the threshold. ONE LANTERN should measure about ¹ ³ the height of your door. TWO LANTERNS should measure about ¼ the height of the door.

PATH LIGHTING Path lighting is the perfect way to add style and safety to a walkway. Lights should be placed about 6' apart from one another, and staggered on either side of the path. Consider the light output of your fixtures to determine spacing that keeps the light from overlapping.

SHADOWING Shadowing is an effect created by placing a light source, often a spot light, in front of an object and projecting a shadow onto a surface behind the object, such as the shadow of a tree onto a home's façade.

UPLIGHTING Uplighting is illuminating an area, surface or object from below to create a focal point in the landscape. Spot lights and well lights are the most common fixtures to use. Consider the width of the area you will be illuminating when choosing the beam spread of the fixture or bulb.

TRANSFORMER Transformers convert your 120-volt household current to 12-volt. Calculate the total lamp wattage, or VA for LED, that your system requires and choose a transformer powerful enough to handle the total wattage/VA with extra capacity.

HARDSCAPE LIGHTING Hardscape lighting (such as fixtures from the Nuvi and Nexus collections) is the perfect light source to use on retaining walls, brick or stone columns and under all types of steps including wood, stone, brick and composite. It can also be used on the underside of a wide variety of outdoor surfaces including built in seating, pergolas, hand railing and fence rails.

HINKLEYLIGHTING.COM

EXTERIOR INSTALLATION on the side or back of the home must be mounted 12" from the ground next to an outlet. INTERIOR INSTALLATION such as in a basement, garage or shed must be listed for that application. UL code also requires an additional plate to guard against fire and conduit must be used when running wiring through an interior wall.

WHEN CALCULATING YOUR LANDSCAPE LIGHTING BUDGET,

consider the full scope of the project even if you are planning to do it in phases. In most cases it’s wise to invest in a larger transformer than you’ll initially need so you can add more light sources as your landscape matures, water or architectural features are added in or your outdoor living areas expand. We recommend allowing for an extra 20% capacity to accommodate these kinds of additions down the road. To the right is a quick and easy guide to calculating the size of transformer required to power your home’s landscape lighting plan.

L I V I NG LANDSCAPE LIGHTING COLLECTIONS are

fabricated to handle harsh treatment from Mother Nature, and certain areas such as along coastlines endure the most brutal conditions. From salt air to extreme moisture, it is crucial to select products that are specially designed for these environments.

MATERIAL MATTERS HEAVY METALS : while researching lanterns and landscape lighting, look for materials that equate to maximum durability such as solid brass, stainless steel and aluminum zinc alloy. All Hinkley products are tested in an ETL-rated laboratory to verify the superior aptitude of every fixture. Don’t worry if you don’t have an engineering degree: your local lighting showroom can point you in the right direction since they are familiar with the climate firsthand, but here is a basic overview:

THE HARDY ISLAND COLLECTION N A M E D F O R T H E R U G G E D LY B E A U T I F U L I S L A N D O F F T H E C OA S T O F B R I T I S H C O LU M B I A T H AT B E A R S I T S N A M E , H A R DY I S L A N D D E F I E S THE HARSHEST ENVIRONMENTS IN ST YLE WITH F U L LY E N C LO S E D L A M P S , A W E AT H E R E D B R A S S F I N I S H T H AT W I L L M AT U R E N AT U R A L LY O V E R T I M E A N D A L I F E T I M E WA R R A N T Y.

“The salt air in the low country can be brutal, so it’s crucial to consider lighting, furniture and fabrics that are going to withstand the different climates.” GINGER BREWTON GINGER BREWTON INTERIORS CHARLESTON , SC

HINKLEYLIGHTING.COM

SOLID BRASS , also referred to as “marine grade,” is an excellent choice for coastal durability, but keep in mind that the finish color may change over time. STAINLESS STEEL fixtures are protected from corrosion by a layer of chromium oxide, but this layer may be compromised by sand and dirt. Regular cleaning is important to maintain the fixture’s finish. ALUMINUM is highly resistant to corrosion due to durable powder coated finishes. This material requires minimal maitenence, but is not recommended for the harshest environments.

THINK HARDSCAPE Hardscape is a petite-sized product that packs a big punch. Perfect for tucking under walls, grazing signs, columns and posts, or placing under deck rails or pergolas, it provides outstanding horizontal illumination with easy installation and an exceptional lifespan. Constructed out of extremely durable materials (our Nuvi Collection is color-tested to last 20 years!), it is built to withstand extreme temperatures and dampness. No brainer.

LANDSCAPE LINGO EVERY NEED-TO-KNOW TERM TO NAVIGATE THE WORLD OF LANDSCAPE LIGHTING

DARK SKY : Denotes fixture or lamp may be

compliant to one of many different codes originated by the International Dark Sky Association. The code generally applies to geographies in and around celestial observatories/telescopes and is meant to limit the amount of light pollution.

enchanting EXTERIORS

LAMPS : Another term for bulbs; also known as lamping.

LED : LED stands for a Light Emitting Diode, which is the most popular solid state alternative to a traditional or incandescent lighting source.

HARDSCAPE : Exterior architecture generally

constructed from stone or masonry materials. The fixed portion of landscaping that defines space and navigation.

INTEGRATED LED ENGINES : LED light sources,

sometimes including the driver, thermally attached to the fixture. Integrated engines enable longer life and better performance. Hinkley has developed more than a dozen specific integrated engines, many of which are globally patented.

LIFESPAN : Refers to the length of time (usually in

hours) a lamp will remain bright. LEDs slowly fade while incandescent lamps burn out, requiring immediate re-lamping.

LUMENS : The measure of the total “amount” of visible light emitted from a lamp or fixture.

PHOTOCELL : An electronic switch that senses the

level of natural light to control power to the fixtures.

PHOTOMETRICS : Isometric line drawings, similar to CARSON 29703VI, 29705VI, 29707VI

GOOD DESIGN NOW EXTENDS BEYOND THE INTERIOR ENVIRONMENT. Everything from

outdoor chandeliers, furniture, and fabrics allow your outdoor living area to reflect the same aesthetic, comfort and taste level your family is accustomed to inside. By defining and investing in these areas, you are increasing your family’s satisfaction by the square foot. Outdoor chandeliers and stylish lanterns will tastefully illuminate those chic chaises and cozy alcoves, balancing creature comforts with the call of the wild.

weather maps, which illustrate how much light falls upon areas adjacent to the fixture. Helpful to determine mounting location and spacing between fixtures to meet desired effect and assist in code compliance where applicable.

TRANSFORMER : Converts utility supplied line

voltage (120 Volts Alternating Current) to low voltage (12-15 VAC) which affords more flexible, yet safe, lower cost installation.

VOLTAGE : The “pressure” electricity has to flow along wires to fixtures.

DESIGNER TIP

“An outdoor space is an extension of the house and my favorite place to entertain. I like to make it as comfortable as possible—layers of ambient light, comfortable seating, throw pillows and even a rug to make it a special space.” RACHEL REIDER | RACHEL REIDER INTERIORS BOSTON , MA

12

VOLT-AMPS (VA) : A calculation of maximum Amps

times the Voltage consumed. Used for LED in order to properly size transformer. LED requires drivers in fixture or lamp as LEDs use direct current. The driver stores power at the peak period of the AC cycle, then provides power during the low period, to keep the light output constant.

VOLTAGE DROP : The volts consumed in long wire

runs. The more load further away from the transformer, the greater the Voltage Drop. Installation design needs to consider this to attain peak fixture lumens.

WATTAGE : The amount of power consumed that will LANDSCAPE LIGHTING MADE SIMPLE

be reflected in your utility bill.
