LOW VOLTAGE LOWDOWN
Ecotopes uses only low voltage lighting featuring LED fixtures which provide safe, dependable illumination with significant energy savings. Ecotopes can creatively light feature elements in the landscape, provide for safety along walking surfaces + literally create evening spaces in the landscape.
Landscape lighting can be beautiful + provide human safety, but may contribute to urban light pollution.
- limit evening runtimes for automated systems
- selective illumination
- dim LEDs to minimum acceptable
- eliminate “blue” or “cool” lighting
- use shielded fixtures + orient downward
Light provides a visual extension to your participation with the landscape, accentuating the emotional context of the project. While night time condenses + compresses spaces, an aperture of light reopens them.
