As daytime diminishes and evenings lengthen this fall, your home and garden don’t have to be left in the dark. An investment in low-voltage landscape lighting extends the time you spend on your patio or deck, illuminates your home’s best features and surrounding landscaping, improves wayfinding, increases safety and provides security around your property and costs little in utility bills.
We share with you some exciting innovations and products in landscape lighting.

WAC Lighting has created many lighting innovations since the company was founded in New York in 1984. “Responsible Lighting” is its brand standard, with a commitment to eco-friendly manufacturing, extensive research/development, energy saving technology, design aesthetics and altruism. Two of our favorite products from them are their bollard lights and accent lights. WAC’s bollard lights (shown above) are of aluminum, with a rated life of 60,000 hours, and serve as visually interesting sculptures that illuminate pathways, steps and surrounding landscaping. WAC’s Grand Accent Light 120v casts a moonlighting effect when mounted high on a tree trunk and directed downwards as a downlight. It has integral brightness control and an adjustable beam angle from 10° to 60°, with a rated life of 45,000 hours.
