    Outdoor Lighting Equipment | eBay - October 13, 2017 by admin

    Outdoor lighting is more than a way to light your walk to the door; it has become a fashion statement that gives your home curb appeal. Landscape and walkway lights are popular because they are not only beneficial but give your lawn a touch of beauty. Whether you want your lighting equipment on the ground, hanging on the side of the house, or on a pole in the yard, you are sure to find exactly what you want to meet your needs. An important thing to remember when choosing outdoor fixtures is to look for all-weather construction since you never know when it will rain, snow, or get scorching hot.

    Solar lights are perfect for long sidewalks when running an extension cord or having an outlet placed is not an option. The lights charge during the day when the sun is out and shining then turn on at dusk. Since they only run when it is dark, owners never have to remember to turn the lights off in the morning. Solar panels are also ideal for camping trips or cookouts at the park where power outlets are nonexistent.

    Just because the sun goes down, it doesn't mean the party has to stop. Light up your deck and pool area with outdoor decor candle lanterns that not only provides lighting but look good doing it. Add a little fun to your space with a color-changing LED outdoor lighting. Nothing says festive like bright, fun colored lights. Another fun idea is to add LED post-deck caps to your landscape.

    Everything that has been said is true, outdoor lighting around your home should look good, but there is still that safety feature associated with having a well-lit walkway. Outdoor security and flood lights are perfect for driveways and garage parking. Typically, this lighting equipment will have a motion sensor, so it only turns on when someone or something walks in front of the sensor, plus it only stays on for a given amount of time. When you come home late, you can trust your lights will turn on, keep you safe, and lead you directly to your door.

    LIBBY LANGDON AND NORTHCAPE EXPAND VISION FOR MODERN OUTDOOR LIVING – Furniture Today - September 2, 2017 by admin

    This press release is submitted and shown here in its original form, unedited by Furniture Today.

    New York, NY, August 31, 2017 NorthCape and Libby Langdon are heading to the Chicago Casual Market with four new outdoor collections that expand the designers vision of modern outdoor living. The new designs will be displayed in a comprehensive presentation inside NorthCapes Merchandise Mart showroom (Space 16-112) featuring rugs, lighting and accessories from the designers growing constellation of brand partners.

    The creative force behind New York City-based interior design firm, Libby Interiors, Inc., Libby Langdon is one of the fastest-growing home furnishings brands in the business and quickly making her mark in the outdoor category. A high-profile, media-savvy advocate for her brand partners who intimately understands the needs of retailers and designers, she wowed visitors to the Traditional Home Hampton Showhouse this summer with a show-stopping patio space reflecting her easy, elegant, everyday style.

    With a fresh aesthetic powered by near-daily conversations with consumers across the country about how they want to live now, the designer, author and makeover television personality says more and more people are realizing that they can create complete, cozy and comfortable outdoor rooms in the same way they would their indoor rooms.

    Indeed, The new collections for NorthCape by Libby Langdon incorporate all the design elements you would expect to see in your living room, but instead are available to furnish your outdoor space, noted retailer Alisa Jamieson, sales and customer service manager at Chicago-based LuxeDecor during the ICFA Preview Show this summer. The innovative and uniquely designed collections feature a relaxed yet tailored look that is visually pleasing and comfortable.

    As interior trends moving outdoors continue to build momentum, it was obvious that we needed to find an experienced interior designer to help us come up with the right concepts, looks and functional ideas for the worlds new outdoor spaces, says Tom Murray, president, NorthCape. We had a strong history of on-target product development that helped us attract and build a great dealer base, but we also knew there were more dealers and end-users out there that we were not appealing to. Engaging Libby Langdon to attract those new dealers and excite existing dealers was a no-brainer.

    Lighting up the NorthCape space will be the new licensed outdoor lighting collection, Libby Langdon for Crystorama. According to Langdon, finding chic, transitional lighting thats not too traditional or fussy, and not too modern and cold has long been a challenge. No more. Ive been looking for an outdoor lighting line that is fresh and exciting, that balances elegance and sophistication with affordability, says retailer Norman Wollach at Jacksons Home & Garden in Dallas. Libby hit the mark.

    Also on view, an assortment of outdoor rugs in multiple patterns and colorways from Langdons latest licensing partnership with KAS Rugs. As Tammy Wheatley, buyer for Statuary World Patio & Fireside in Oklahoma City, reports, Its going to be great to offer outdoor rug options that have been custom designed by Libby to coordinate with our current outdoor fabrics!

    At the center of it all is, of course, Libbys NorthCape furniture designs. Heres a detailed look at the collections set to be unveiled in Chicago:

    The Taylor Collection

    Further blurring the lines between elegant interior and exterior design, the clean-lined Taylor Collection by Libby Langdon for NorthCape combines upholstered Textiline all-weather material, luxe cushioning and an aluminum dark wood-look frame for the perfect balance of comfort and durability. A dynamic mix of textures and materials add dimension and versatility, from the nutmeg-colored, slubby-weave material on the outside of the upholstered chairs, sofa and loveseat, to the table tops with travertine stone-look ceramic tile with a creamy marbling detail. The transitional dining table features a dark wood-look aluminum frame and an angular base frame design with clear glass that shows off the sleek lines and shapely details of the base.

    Weston Collection

    Sleekly styled with angular, architecturally influenced lines, the versatile Weston Collection by Libby Langdon for NorthCape is designed to work in a variety of settings from outdoor coastal to contemporary, depending on the cushion and colorways that dress it. With a narrow, stainless-steel silver frame wrapped in natural-look jute twine that fits in all size spaces, Weston pops against dark wood decks, is ideal for modern, light-tile patios, and is simply stunning against gray, salt-washed settings. The geometric woven resin lower shelf is highlighted with the glass-tops on the side and cocktail tables, and echoed on the fire table where a stainless steel band wrap emphasizes the mixed material theme, and generous inner-seating width and depth make for great comfort.

    The Mooring

    The Mooring by Libby Langdon for NorthCape is a sophisticated combination of textures and materials creating an elegant look that is tailored and transitional with exceptional durability. Mixing dual, side-by-side, dark walnut willow-weave panels with an oil-rubbed bronze aluminum frame finish feels rich and luxurious, while the high legs on the sofa, loveseat and lounge chair keep the look light and airy. Finished in the oil-rubbed bronze aluminum, the dining tables beautifully styled, classically inspired trestle is set off by a Dura-Wood smoke gray wood textured top for just the right amount of contrast. Dining chairs in both stationary and swivel options feature sleek arms for a slim profile, while comfortable and generous inner-seat cushions provide width and depth.

    The Live Edge Table Collection

    Inspired by the interior trend toward natural wood slab tabletops, the Live Edge Table Collection by Libby Langdon for NorthCape is designed to work beautifully with numerous NorthCape and Libby Langdon Collections. Offered in dining, end and cocktail tables, the natural wood-look slab tabletop features a stylish, yet simple oil-rubbed base that makes the live-edge top star of the show. Like all Libby Langdon designs for NorthCape, the emphasis is on creating an eclectic mix with unique pieces that work seamlessly with many different dining chair and lounge seating styles.

    The light touch: LED bulbs, solar options can accent lawns, gardens – Toledo Blade - September 2, 2017 by admin

    Share

    Print

    Flowery gardens and sculpted lawns bring curb appeal during the day.

    And it doesn't take much effort to showcase that same attraction at night.

    Lighting, whether inexpensive path lights, or the more elaborate, impressive, expensive landscaped lighting systems, can illuminate trees, bushes, gardens, patios, pathways, stairs, flags, and even homes pointing out what you want others to see (and hiding what you don't).

    And while a well-lit lawn may seem like a luxury, it's as simple and affordable as a homeowner wants and needs it to be.

    Start with basic-level lawn lighting, solar lights, which draw energy from the sun, store it in batteries, and emit light through low-wattage LED bulbs.

    As the technology has improved, particularly the brightness and energy efficiency of the LED bulbs, which last years and now provide close to the same amount of light as standard halogen bulbs, so has the popularity of solar lighting.

    What used to occupy a small portion of a store's landscape lighting selection has become the trend in do-it-yourself outdoor lighting, said Wayne Mildenstein, an electrical associate for six years at the Lowe's Sylvania Township location, 7000 Central Ave.

    Its a lot cheaper and its a lot easier than other electric-powered lawn lighting, he said. You just stick it in the ground and there it is.

    Darrell Smock, a 70-year-old recently retired West Toledo resident, was sold on outdoor solar lighting several years ago for those same reasons. There are now 20 solar-powered lights in his backyard and four in the median in front of his home.

    He estimates hes spent $150 on the lighting products in that time, including replacement for the batteries if not entirely new solar lights.

    We bought a lot of different ones at different times, he said, but its always been solar powered. We just tried different things. Its cheap enough that you can change it up of you dont like it.

    When asked how important the lawn lights were to him, he laughed.

    Its more important to Jo, his wife, he said. But its nice to have.

    Solar-powered lights arent just for pathways, but can be decorative and fun, like the Gemmy Outdoor Decorative Lantern at Lowes ($15), a Mason jar with a string of 20 tiny LEDs inside meant to resemble fireflies, which can be hung outside or set on a table or windowsill.

    But there are some downsides.

    Solar-powered lights dont provide as much light as an electric light source.

    Solar power shows where a a path is, Mr. Mildenstein said. The wired ones light up the place.

    And because solar-powered lights are powered by the sun, cloudy days will keep them from recharging the battery. Its also best to take them out before winter; a winter freeze is not good for the batteries.

    And even then, expect to replace the solar-powered lights at least the batteries every two or three years.

    The next step up are low-voltage wired LED lights, which combine the lifespan and low-energy of solar lighting but without the hassle of battery replacement or even winter storage. The system requires a transformer, LED lights, and the wiring that connects them, and can be covered by top soil or even mulch.

    Its fairly simple to do, said Mike Whitmore, showroom sales lighting specialist for Gross Electric, 2807 N. Reynolds Rd.

    A lot of people are afraid of electricity, but with this system its low voltage, as little as only 12 volts, he said. Just pick a location to put in the transformer thats close to the an outlet, then just attach the light to that cable. Its very easily done.

    But dont get carried away with lighting up the lawn at least at the beginning, Mr. Whitmore added.

    I usually tell people to start out small, dont light everything you see. Pick out focal points: trees, bushes, plants what youll probably want to light because you paid money for people to see them."

    The system can also be much bigger, with flood lights in the trees and on the ground, small lights to brighten stairs and rails, underneath statues or other lawn fixtures, and along lengthy pathways.

    Theres a lot of different technologies for landscape lighting, depending on what youre trying to do, he said.

    Gross Electric has installed lighting systems all over the northwest Ohio, ranging from $1,000 to $5,000. But the store also offers a free course a few times a year for those who want to do it themselves.

    Thats why were here, he said, to help you lay out the system and all the system pieces and parts.

    Put your home and yard in the best light – Seattle Times - September 2, 2017 by admin

    Place landscape fixtures to highlight features, create special effects, enhance safety.

    Late summer is when the all of the energy and money youve invested in creating a beautiful landscape is in full bloom. The daylight hours are waning but the nights are still balmy, making this the perfect time to think about outdoor lighting that is both functional and shows off your landscape design.

    Outdoor lighting extends a homes entertainment area, and is also aesthetically pleasing when viewing the yard from indoors, says Eddie Uyeta, president and CEO of Uyeta Landscape and Maintenance in Renton. Were lucky that our gardens can thrive well into November and December. Its nice to be able to enjoy those colors from your office, dining area or bedroom window even after the sun goes down.

    Safety first

    At a glance

    Areas to consider outdoor lighting include:

    When planning outdoor lighting, start with functionality which translates to safety. What areas need well-lit pathways? And, where do you want to focus light for home protection? You may want a spotlight on your home security signage to deter would-be thieves, and motion-detector lights over the garage and front door.

    One of the biggest decorative questions people have is in choosing path lights, Uyeta says. There are hundreds of choices and you can get as fancy as you want to. Just make sure to choose fixtures that match the architectural design of your house.

    Path lights are worth investing in because they are highly visible, sticking out of the ground 15-24 inches. You can save money on the other smaller lighting fixtures that are installed in-ground or down-lit from trees for soft ambience.

    Decorative lighting

    There are three basic styles of decorative lighting that an expert can combine to create the perfect evening ambience.

    The best lighting is when you dont really notice its there, just the effects, Uyeta says. The ideal result is the same lighting you get with a full moon bright but not glaring. This is better though, because you cant control moonlight or clouds.

    Technology is making it easier than ever to control all of your lighting requirements. A control panel on your laptop, tablet or smartphone controls everything from the time the lights switch on and off, to different levels of lighting in different areas of the yard, to colorful LED lighting options.

    The beauty of LED lighting is that it uses very little electricity and its fun, Uyeta says. You can light up your backyard in green and blue for a Seahawks barbecue after the game, and then easily change back to your everyday lighting scheme.

    Uyeta Landscape & Maintenancehas been family owned since 1967. Our caring and knowledgeable team has over 50 years experience combining art and science into landscape environments that leave clients and communities with a sense of pride and place.

    Angie’s List: Growing plants indoors for outdoor success – 41 NBC News - September 2, 2017 by admin

    MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) Giving your plants a head start indoors can make a big difference when you move them outside for the growing season.

    If you cant wait to plant a summers worth of tasty and nutritious vegetables, maybe you dont have to. With the right equipment and attention, you can maintain a successful indoor grow room.

    If youre looking to get your garden started early and doing it from inside your home, all you need to do is invest in some timers and lighting, and it doesnt have to be that expensive, Angies List founder Angie Hicks says.

    Good lighting is critical. In her basement growing space, master gardener Sue Arnold uses inexpensive fluorescent lights in the warm and cool range available at big box stores.

    They need to be 12 hours a day. People think, Well in my garden eight hours of sun is enough for a tomato, but indoors you need 12 hours a day. And you need a timer, thats very important, Arnold says.

    Like Arnold, Derik Strenzel created his growing system for very little money by using re-purposed materials. He spends about 30 minutes a day tending to 300 varieties of vegetables, and chills out even longer.

    We spend three or four hours a day in this room just hanging out, relaxing, he says. All of the animals naturally come in here, all of the time. If were home and they want to hang out somewhere thats not around us, I guarantee you theyre in here.

    When the time comes to transplant outdoors, do it slowly.

    Plants need to be introduced not only to the light, but to the wind, some gentle breezes would be nice. So put them in the shade for a while, deep shade, light shade, then increase the sun, Arnold says.

    Angie says online is a great place to buy seeds. Variety packs of 25 different veggies start as low as $5.

    Outdoor lighting system in Vardahovit community – Panorama.am - September 2, 2017 by admin

    Most of the residents of Vardahovit community of Armenias Vayots Dzor region are refugees and families that have relocated there from different adjacent villages. Until this year, there had been no outdoor lighting infrastructure in the community.

    From now on, the streets of Vardahovit will be illuminated in the evenings owing to the installation of a 1.6 km-long system of 45 LED lights. The construction of the new external illumination infrastructures became a reality in the result of the cooperation of the Foundation for the Preservation of Wildlife and Cultural Assets (FPWC) and VivaCell-MTS for the implementation of Alternative Energy project.

    VivaCell-MTS General Manager Ralph Yirikian and FPWC founder Ruben Khachatryan, head of Vardahovit community Samvel Gevorgyan and community residents attended the launching ceremony of the newly built energy-efficient system.

    One of the priorities of VivaCell-MTS is supporting the development of rural communities as a precondition of resolving social and environmental problems in the country. In lots of communities of Armenia, including Vardahovit, construction of LED outdoor lighting systems due to its long term positive impact, influences the improvement of life quality of the residents and sustainable development of village communities. The joy and enthusiasm of the residents encourage us even more and prove the efficiency of the social responsibility strategy underlying the projects, said VivaCell-MTS General Manager Ralph Yirikian.

    The operation of enironmentally friendly and energy-efficient LED lights reduces energy consumption by up to 80%. Due to the installation of energy-efficient outdoor lighting systems, village communities significantly reduce their financial expenses. The economy of community resources makes the life in communities more vibrant.

    Outdoor lighting will be provided from 21:00 to 00:00 in summer, and from 18:00 to 23:00 in winter. On holidays, street lighting will be provided all night long.

    Bid by Kennedy Catholic in Somers to Field Games Under Lights Advances – TAPinto.net - August 21, 2017 by admin

    SOMERS, N.Y.--LED lights for Kennedy Catholics football field got an informal green light last week from the Somers Planning Board.

    After a few tweaks to the final plans, expected by next month, the board will likely approve the lights officially at the Sept. 13 meeting, perhaps in time to play some of this seasons home games in the evening.

    Along with the four light stanchions, which will permit the nighttime football games, the school will also put up a building, about 10 feet by 25 feet, to provide bathrooms and a small concession stand. A press box will sit atop the building, which will be almost 11 feet high.

    Sign Up for E-News

    No community members spoke at the public hearing on Wednesday, Aug. 9. The school, off Route 138, is surrounded by more than 60 acres of campus and the Muscoot Reservoir. As a result, its Friday Night Lights are not expected to shine through the windows of anyones home.

    Fred Compton, Kennedys director of advancement, said the school had hoped to have the lights in place to start the season.

    While thats not going to happen, he said, the stanchions could be up soon enough to reschedule at least some of this years games and play them under the lights.

    The towns Open Space Committee had questioned the lights effect on Muscoot wildlife.

    We are concerned that the location, height and size of the stanchions will significantly impact the reservoir in terms of light pollution, the committee said in a letter to the Planning Board last month.

    That part of the reservoir, the letter said, includes a sensitive shoreline habitat for water birds and amphibians, all of whom may be negatively affected by artificial nighttime lighting.

    Scott Douglas Allen, the projects architect, told the board that the lights would have no impact on wildlife.

    The distance that we are from the edge of the shoreline is 625 feet, he said. We believe that obviously the light would probably not travel that distance.

    Pressed by board member Nancy Gerbino for an assurance stronger than probably, Allen flatly declared that the light will not travel that far, except for indirect, reflected light, which will bounce off the canopy of trees and potentially other environmental areas. But there is no direct light that will be hitting the shoreline.

    In addition, under a 2014 state law governing outdoor illumination, lights cannot be projected above the horizontal plane of their fixture. Kennedys LED lights, Allen said, will shine only onto the field below, not into the night sky. Thats why they call it the Dark Sky, he said, referring to the name of the regulations.

    The towns Bureau of Fire Protection asked that the concession stand include a landline telephone for emergency calls.Kennedy Catholic competes in the New York areas Catholic High School Athletic Association, many of whose teams already play under the lights, so the Gaels are familiar with nighttime gridiron action. All told, the school fields teams in two dozen varsity sports.
