Landscape Lighting Installations
Designing low voltage landscape lighting installations for your Long Island home is a complex project that requires careful planning before a shovel enters the ground. A proper design and layout are crucial in order to create the desired outcome. The correct material must be chosen in order to match the architecture, landscaping, and challenges of the location. Site planning must take place to determine the landscape plan and process, underground utilities such as electric and gas, in ground obstructions such as patios, driveways, and walkways, in ground automatic sprinklers, electric gates, and oil tanks. I am sure there are more that could be listed here.
A few questions should be asked about future work such as:
• Home improvements
• Water lines, gas lines, sewer lines
• Automatic sprinkler system
It’s important to know everything about the property to prevent problems and prepare for future work.
Once all the preplanning is complete and the site is ready for installation then we can begin the process of installing by following a step- by- step process that includes the following:
1. Determine the location of the transformer
2. Prep the fixtures by installing correct bulbs and lenses
3. Place the fixtures on the site as per the design
4. Determine the hub location
5. Trench all the areas that wire will be installed
6. Pull home run wires
7. Make wire connections at satellite hubs and intelli-hubs
8. Mount transformer
9. Wire transformer
10. Check secondary voltage and amperage of the hubs
11. Check primary amperage
12. Check primary voltage
13. Program lighting controller
14. Build as-built plan
15. Check lighting in evening
16. Make adjustments
Installation of all wires shall be at 12” depth and in conduit when under walkways and driveways. The Rain Rich crew will employ pipe pulling equipment, trenchers, and pneumatic missile to ensure the proper depth and installation. Once installation is complete, fine tuning can be completed with respect to location of lights, bulbs, and lenses used.
