Book Description

From Booklist Davidson, author of The Complete Home Lighting Book (1997), goes beyond the concept of a single floodlight placed high on a wall to discourage intruders. He explains the technical terms and definitions of light, equipment, and accessories (watts and volts, projectors, lamps, transformers, luminaries, and lenses) and the principles of lighting design. There's a chapter on planning your garden lighting and one offering a multitude of ideas. They include ways to light trees, shrubs, lawns, rocks, fences, walls, sculptures, decks, terraces, arbors, gazebos, paths, and driveways. Davidson also offers advice on lighting pools, waterfalls, streams, terraces, and buildings such as a conservatory. All 128 pages contain color photographs and drawings. George Cohen Read more
