Located in Midvale, Landscape Lighting Pro of Utah serves throughout Utah’s residential areas, including Salt Lake City, Park City, Draper, Davis and Utah Counties. Our outdoor lighting portfolio includes projects throughout Utah and beyond. 

Too in-depth for me. If you are already a professional and need some help for high end customers then this might be your book. I was looking for something to help me with run length, transformer placement, voltage drop calculations, and the more common dos and don’ts.

It’s always a good idea to have some sort of a service plan in place for your system. Having your landscape lighting system serviced by a professional lighting team will help to keep everything running the way it should. If you have any questions about maintenance plans and what they entail, or if you have followed these trouble shooting strategies and still can’t figure out what’s wrong with your system, we would more than happy to help. 

If you have managed to restore power to the exterior outlet and the lights still won’t come on at night when the transformer is plugged in, then it’s very likely that there is an issue occurring with your lighting system.

Start by opening up the metal panel to your transformer. Inside the transformer there will be a white, orange, or red toggle switch. This switch needs to be set to the ON position. If you switch it to the on position and it flips itself back to the off position then there is a short somewhere in the system.

There are a large number of reasons why shorts occur, you will likely need to have a lighting technician come trouble -shoot your system to get it running again.  If your lights have stopped coming on, think back to when you first noticed that they weren’t coming on.

Were you having any work done that day in the garden, any yard work around the house? If you had new vegetation planted in your flower beds for example, it’s possible that a wire could have been cut by your gardener.

Was new mulch put in your garden beds? There have been a number of occasions when we’ve been called out because a heavy layer of new mulch was covering up all the lights. Our clients will look out their window at night and assume the lights are all out, when they actually were just covered up by the mulch their gardener put down.

It never hurts to go out and check your light fixtures for obstructions.  The last thing I’ll recommend checking is that your controller is set properly. The timer should have an ON/OFF override. You can use this to turn the lights on and off manually.

Check that the timer is set to the correct time. If your lighting specialist did what they were supposed to, there should be instructions for programming your timer on a folded up piece of paper inside the transformer.

If you are having trouble figuring out how to set your timer, or if you don’t have instructions, give your landscape lighting specialist a call so they can try to help you over the phone before having to come out for a visit.

 

“The Landscape Lighting Book” is an illustrative gem of a book, with thorough coverage of the processes and theories behind the many aspects of landscape lighting.Read more

This incredibly detailed reference book by an experienced lighting designer can serve a dual purpose: It can help landscape architects who are working with lighting professionals to research some of the issues they need to discuss, and it can serve as a guide to landscape architects on smaller projects who will be doing lighting design themselves. This third edition has been updated to include guidance on how LED technology requires changes to the configuration of light fixtures. Sections on how to light residential and public spaces as well as specifics on how to light different plants, sculptures, walkways, and stairs make this a reference book designers should keep handy.

The Landscape Lighting book, by Janet Moyer, provides both an academic and practical level of landscaping lighting knowledge. Another good book, if you can find it, is the Ortho’s book of How to Design and Install Outdoor Lighting.

In comparison, the Ortho book has more colorful pictures and offers a very colorful education – I’d say, more or less at a good high school level. If you want more of college level introduction to landscape lighting – perhaps, to start a business or to broaden your knowledge, The Landscape Lighting book is the book for you.

This book has so much information it will blow the mind of the average layman (IMO). I already had Raine’s book, which is quite nice, but this takes the subject to a whole new level. I ended up reading it pretty much cover to cover.

I especially appreciated the inclusion of led fixtures and bulbs, which are missing from Raine’s book. The only thing it doesn’t have are some general guidelines for how many watts to use for various purposes — moonlighting, uplighting trees, uplighting bushes, up/downlighting sculptures, etc.

The other thing I noticed is that the book is very poorly edited. You will find sentences that defy interpretation, misspellings, etc. The poor editing doesn’t detract from the value of the book, meerly makes it seem less professional than it deserves to be.

It’s a lot of money to spend for a book, but well worth it, for sure. Lighting systems aren’t cheap to install, though led fixtures can make them relatively cheap to operate.

Still the best book for the professional. Invaluable resource for architects, landscape architects and landscape lighting designers. Broad and deep with plenty of technical information. I purchased this book in 1992 and I bought it again today (an electrician friend “lost” my original copy).

A second edition (if planned) should include better information about transformer regulation (the ability of a low voltage lighting transformer to maintain 12v under load) and voltage drop (the dreaded decrease in voltage through the main supply cable) which are presented as formulae rather than actual measurements.

Great photographs mostly of large scale projects. This book should be in every outdoor lighting designer’s library.There is a second edition (Wiley 2005) of the book revised and updated by the author to reflect changes and improvements in techniques and equipment.

The second edition is easily recognized by the illustrated four color cover; the original had an illustrated dust cover (missing from the last run of the first edition) by the cover itself was plain black.

I have both editions and consider them a bargain in terms of concentrated relevant information.

The book gives a well documented narrative about landscape lighting design process. One can easily see auther’s vast on hand experience in small details. Through case studies one can discover a tried and tested method she has been practicing.

It gives really indepth view on not only design and installaiton but also maintenance and common faults. It would have been perfect if there would have been an inclusion of LED technology in lamp, luminaire and practise section.

And how she manages lighting power guidelines with conventional technology of halogen. Overall I would say this as an essential reading book for landscape lighting.

The Architecture Of Light (2nd Edition): A textbook of procedures and practices for the Architect, Interior Designer and Lighting Designer.

I spent my first couple of years at Landscape Lighting Pro of Utah as a Lighting Technician, and then as a Crew Leader. I’ve worked on countless low voltage landscape lighting installation projects that required careful planning and a lot of technical skill. Fortunately for you, the reader, this blog isn’t about bombarding you with trivial information concerning voltage drops, kelvin temperatures, and lumen outputs. I’m simply offering up 5 simple things I learned as a tech that can help you trouble shoot your low voltage lighting system if the lights aren’t coming on.

LED technology offers a new light source in landscape design. In the process, it causes huge changes to the configuration of lighting fixtures. The Third Edition of The Landscape Lighting Book includes information to help guide readers on the use of LED technology. With extensive new art and photographs and changes throughout the book, this edition offers expert guidance and advice on the theory, design process, project needs, and techniques for all types of elements in landscape lighting.

If none of your lights are coming on, the best place to start is the transformer (the metal box all the lights are hooked up to). The transformer will likely be mounted on the side of your home next to an exterior outlet.

The first step to trouble shooting your system will be to ensure that the transformer is plugged into the outlet. If you’re like me, you’re probably wondering why it wouldn’t be plugged in. But go ahead and check just to make sure.

If you plug the transformer’s cord into the outlet and your lights come on that night, you’re set to go.  If your lights still aren’t coming on, check to make sure your outlet has power. Bring a hair dryer or a phone charger outside and plug it in to the outlet to test for power.

This will help you determine if the problem is with your outlet or with your lighting system. If you plug your phone charger into the outlet and it won’t charge your phone, then you know that your outlet doesn’t have any power – that’s the problem.

To remedy this, there are two things you can do.  First, go back inside and check your breaker panel. Make sure that all the breaker switches are flipped to the appropriate setting. If any are tripped, set them back to the appropriate ON position and check your outlet for power again.

  Second, if the breaker panel is fine, then you will need to check all your GFCI outlets and reset them. The GFCI outlet is the kind of outlet you’ve seen in your bathroom next to the sink – they have little reset buttons on them.

Sometimes after a heavy rain storm, or for other reasons, the GFI will trip. This happens for safety reasons to avoid electric shock. After doing all this and power still hasn’t been achieved in your exterior outlet then you may need to have an electrician evaluate why there isn’t any power.

Richly illustrated and fully updated practical guidance on every aspect of landscape lighting

The second edition of Janet Lennox Moyer’s THE LANDSCAPE LIGHTING BOOK is an absolute necessity for everybody who works in landscape lighting or who is seriously interested in creating their own garden lighting.

Ms Moyer has greatly revised and expanded the color plates and Chapter 4, “The Design Process – Documenting and Installing Landscape Lighting” as well as writing an entirely new Chapter 5 “Follow-up Work – Record Documents and Project Maintenance.

” These changes and additions and the many other updates make the new edition well worth the purchase price.First published in 1992, THE LANDSCAPE LIGHTING BOOK has served as the single and indispensable reference for the landscape lighting industry.

It has offered all new landscape lighting practitioners guidance and provided an emerging industry the foundation necessary on which to build solid practice. While there is a wealth of other books that offer how-to help and publish pretty pictures, none of them even attempt to define and explain professional practice for the landscape lighting industry with Ms Moyer’s authority and confidence.

THE LANDSCAPE LIGHTING BOOK is not an easy book to read but it is well worth the effort. Once you understand the theory behind the short cuts and rules-of-thumb that other how to books offer, you are free to create your own.

With the freedom you gain when you understand and can apply those fundamental principals and concepts to your landscape lighting, you become like the cook who ignores the printed recipe and creates a masterpiece of culinary art.
