Lighting for Moon Garden

pawleyscruser(z8 SC)July 17, 2004

I am interested in a source (on-line, preferably) for lighting to create a "moon light effect" for a garden (containing statuary, a wishing well, fountain, numerous perennials (including azaleas, ferns, hostas, et al). I have installed a very generic, 2-lens halogen light fixture high in a tree, but it is not focused well, and I'd like to find a more specialized, single lens fixture.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi
I am not going to be a lot of help, but we have tried solar spotlight and regular spotlights and put the colored bulbs and put at the bottom of some of our plants. I hope you get some good answers as I would also be interested. On any shows I have watched they same move them around at night until you get the desired effect. I get this newsletter and a lot of good ideas P. Allen Smith [gardenletter@lb.bcentral.com]
Troy-Joan@att.net if you get any good answers.
Thanks
Joanie

Not to appear a dummy, but I have a small string of the clear rope lights tucked under my Hosta. It looks really well and is very very faint, glows more than lights. That is what I wanted. I do not have a clue how to help you with lighting a really large area with them..without making them look like "Christmas Lights". I have put a string of Rope lights in a large wrought iron urn and it cast a pretty sheen on and around some landscaping. Have not tried them in a solid (concrete) urn but that may be the very "trick" you are seeking.
Hope this helps.
