WAC Lighting Landscape Lighting Plan for LED

Here is a Landscape Lighting Plan provided by WAC Lighting. You can see that it has longer runs. With LED, you don’t have to worry about voltage drop.

Here are the instructions WAC Lighting provides.

Step 1: Design

Select the focal points in the yard – these will be the main viewing objects on the projects and the first level of light.

After determining how these focal points will be illuminated, you will fill in light to accent the other areas of the yard.

Step 3: Fixture Spacing:

Spacing is subjective. 6 feet of lead wire is provided across the offering for final location adjustments in the field

Bollard/ Path / Area: around 10’ distance between each

Accents/Inground: Small objects require 1-2 fixtures, while large canopy trees with multiple viewing angles may require up to 4 fixtures.

Wall Wash: Placing 2’ from your wall will cast nice even illumination

Hardscape: 3” for short, tight areas.
6” to illuminate under deck hand rails, retaining walls, or steps.

Larger sizes are available for greater illumination into areas needing a greater amount of light.

Tape Lighting: Tape lighting has approximately 40’ maximum run distance, 5 amp max per run. Available in 1’, 5’ & 10’ connectable lengths.

Indicator: Mark pathway borders with 18” spacing

Submersible: Rated for use up to 5 feet deep.

Step 4: Wire Runs

It is very likely that you will have several runs going out from the transformer to connect all of the fixtures. Adhere to transformer guidelines and above 9V at the end of the run.

Step 5: Transformer Sizing

Based on the fixture runs and number of fixtures on your project, you will select your transformer size (75W, 150W, 300W, 600W etc.).
