    Low Voltage LED Landscape Lighting

    Dirk, I'd like to try to illuminate the raised wall and the 2 scuppers. Our arbor is about 20 ft away. I was thinking of mounting a spot or flood 9 ft high on the arbor and angling it down to shine on the wall. What do you think?

    North Texas landscape with palm trees after 2021 record low temps.

    I believe European fan palms are cold hardy 5-15 degrees. Chinese windmill palms would be a better choice from a cold hardiness perspective.

    New Pool Build - Mansfield, TX

    Our robot is incredibly efficient at cleaning our pool far better than our old Polaris. Also, there's no loud booster pump using up a bunch of electricity either. BTW...Your Texas pool will be hot in the summer with a black plaster.

    Grackle Season

    I string up fishing line, criss cross above our pool. The grackles won't fly over anymore and drop those poop sacs. They also like to drop them on your freshly washed and waxed car.

    That looks very nice. If it we me, I would not have any crape myrtles near a pool. They are pretty, but those petals will find their way into the pool.

    Low Voltage LED Landscape Lighting

    Thanks for all your thoughts, Dirk. I wasn't thinking of using the spots in the same "light" as you. 😄 Sorry I couldn't help myself.

    Low Voltage LED Landscape Lighting

    So I'm trying to figure out what to do with my raised wall (15" tall ). There are canna lilies planted behind the wall. I feel like this area will need lighting, but I'm not sure what to do here. Any suggestions? This is the right side of the wall. So far I can see a spots on the dried palm...
