  10. camgreer on October 6, 2022 at 7:31 pm

    Maybe somebody can tell me: why is it that when I watch a video and somebody is pointing over their shoulder and referring to another video, it’s not there? Is this due to my adblocker or something like that? I get this all the time.

  11. Ganesan K Pillay on October 6, 2022 at 7:32 pm

    Very nice . So kind of you

  12. Joseph J on October 6, 2022 at 7:33 pm

  14. Charles Greenwood on October 6, 2022 at 7:36 pm

    I just got led lights installed on my house and the lights are attracting thousands of bugs do I need to use a yellow led lights instead because the ones I have are bright white

  15. mebrannon1 on October 6, 2022 at 7:36 pm

    No bulb on a led. It’s a diode

  16. Tabitha Jenkins on October 6, 2022 at 7:39 pm

    So follow everybody else or its a mistake. Got it👍

  17. Jeffrey Milkey on October 6, 2022 at 7:40 pm

    Thanks for the advice. I want to be able to remotely dim the lights…..what is your recommendation? Thank you.

  18. Christene Patti on October 6, 2022 at 7:41 pm

    Interested in the large Solar Spot Light. What Brand is it?

  19. P J on October 6, 2022 at 7:41 pm

    IMO the "recommended" examples here are hideous. In much the way a little well-placed quiet lets us appreciate the music more, some night should be a part of night lighting. Turn off the glare and allow a little darkness in between lights!

  20. Russell Lowery on October 6, 2022 at 7:43 pm

    My transformers go out during storms how to stop replacing them. Help thanks

  21. Neekster on October 6, 2022 at 7:44 pm

    YES! Solar lights SUUUUUUCK! They are dim, they die after a week, and you have to buy new ones every year.

  22. Its__alex on October 6, 2022 at 7:44 pm

    The thing that is a little bit annoying about this is that its really expensive like i dont got like 1m dollars i only got like 1000 in my bank probably

  23. Richard Recupero on October 6, 2022 at 7:49 pm

    Wait. Blue and white lights don’t match?

  24. DailyBrusher on October 6, 2022 at 7:49 pm

    It’s so great to see a smart, articulate guy talk about his real area of knowledge. This is going to help me a lot – thank you!

  25. Mod MINI on October 6, 2022 at 7:50 pm

    Hello, looking for an LED strip light for tucking under the capstones of a retaining wall. There is a half inch overhang. Any affiliate link suggestions for strip / tape light options are appreciated. Subdued, warm white and not too many lumens – thanks!

  26. Al J on October 6, 2022 at 7:51 pm

    You can buy different wattage of bulbs 5, 7 and 11 depending on what effect your looking for but remember Low Voltage Transformers have a max watt limit. So if you want ten 11 watt lights which is 110 watts and your transformer max is 100 watts that won’t work.

  27. xyzct on October 6, 2022 at 7:53 pm

    Light YOUR property, not everyone else’s. No neighbor should be able to directly see your bulbs. Light pollution is selfish, rude, and illegal.

  28. Life talk on October 6, 2022 at 7:53 pm

    Great video. Very helpful. Thank you

  29. Ginger on October 6, 2022 at 7:54 pm

    Ready to do lighting low voltage style… but finding ideas for ranch home uplighting is hard to..
    Trying to decide up lighting for house,landscaping.. flag pole and path lighting.

  30. HumansREvil on October 6, 2022 at 7:55 pm

    im doing a solar enchanted woodland theme with my small garden, im not a home owner and may not live here for rest of my life,so solar is ideal to put amongst flowers,shrubbery etc

  31. Allen wrench on October 6, 2022 at 7:57 pm

    purchasing Kichler should be first on your list – garbage

  32. Reggie Cariou on October 6, 2022 at 7:57 pm

    I have purchased random light sets and large transformers, Is there a service where I can share my landscape and get feedback on where to place what? I am very handy, but I don’t know what to use. Floods, spot, wall wash….. do you typically use 50w or 20w for trees? Thanks

  33. Sherry Anders on October 6, 2022 at 7:58 pm

    Very helpful, thank you! All your videos are great. One question thou: my concrete porch extends approx 8’ from house and Is 40’ long of 60’ total length, and has double window, single door and another double window on porch. How can I set lights so windows/door doesn’t look washed out?

  34. West Haven OR on October 6, 2022 at 7:59 pm

    Great advice on the color temperature. Can’t stand daylight (6500k) outdoor led lighting. Looks shrill and garish and is just painful to look at. 2700k to 3000k is what you want for a natural look.

  35. Danny Dawson on October 6, 2022 at 7:59 pm

    A second for dark sky-friendly landscape lighting. I’m designing my own because there are not enough professionals who care.

  36. Clap Forboobies on October 6, 2022 at 8:00 pm

    If you highlight a tree in the middle of the yard do you have to dig up the grass across the yard all the way to the transformer? WOuldnt that ruin the grass?

  37. YourRealtorSam on October 6, 2022 at 8:01 pm

    Why would you say don’t buy solar lights when it helps people save money in electricity bill

  38. Bob Dobalina on October 6, 2022 at 8:01 pm

    This was a very helpful intro! Thank you.

  39. Georgia Hinton on October 6, 2022 at 8:03 pm

    Great info

  40. Pablo t. on October 6, 2022 at 8:04 pm

    Excellent information

  41. BigDuke6ixx on October 6, 2022 at 8:04 pm

    Use low intensity solar LEDs. DO not use high intensity mains powered lights like these 1:27 because they disorientate creatures like moths who are very important nighttime pollinators. Don’t banish the night with these stupid light polluting landscape lighting ‘solution’.

    Great info, brother. Thanks!

  45. JaxPlanet on October 6, 2022 at 8:07 pm

    Again, bashing solar lighting. He just doesn’t understand that there is a huge difference between the stand alone solar lights and setting up a powerful solar power source for all lights.

  46. Wallace Wimmer on October 6, 2022 at 8:08 pm

    👍

  47. KB Berlin on October 6, 2022 at 8:08 pm

    That was SO helpful, thank you!

  48. Lori Lal on October 6, 2022 at 8:12 pm

    We use to have all wired lighting in our landscaping. But the weedeating caused a problem. Wires got destroyed. So instead of doing it all over we just went we solar. Makes it so much easier. We went with just the amount of lighting we wanted. Not to low and not to bright. We like it.

  49. Michael Twing on October 6, 2022 at 8:13 pm

    I recommend you follow the dark sky movement and eliminate or reduce up lights period. Focus your business on safety path lights and subtle area lighting. Oh and “architectural lighting” is a bit more ego driven than landscape lighting.

  50. Suplex Suarez on October 6, 2022 at 8:14 pm

    I enjoy watching your videos at 0.75x playback speed, makes it feel like i have a drinking buddy who is a professional lighting installer
