Low Voltage Lighting
A garden in bright daylight is a play of color, texture, and form. Looking from the house, you can enjoy the rough grace of the gnarled tree arching over the lawn, the neat symmetry of green hedges, the many colors of brilliant flowers. The sun illuminates it all, hiding nothing.
At night, the same garden wears an air of mystery as light and shadow reveal some parts, and hide others. The tree looms mysteriously above the grass. Moonlight captures the varied textures of a flowerbed. A wall or path is sensed in the darkness. There is magic and beauty in the night garden.
Well-design garden lighting brings out the special beauty of the night garden. It illuminates the best features, leaving dark those you wish to conceal. Garden lighting shaped the view and mood; it can make a small garden seem specious and attractive, a large estate intimate and comfortable.
Garden lighting also has a practical side. It helps you see where you’re walking at night, and where any abrupt changes of level or hazards are. It discourages intruders by lighting the ground level clearly and eliminating shadows near the house. It permits you to use the garden after dark for relaxing, entertaining, playing games, or strolling.
At Thoms Bros., we take lighting very seriously; our service is far from installing kits purchased at home improvement stores. We start with a custom design that meets the client’s needs, dreams, and functions for their landscaping at night. Most of the time, demos are set up to give the customer a feel on how the lighting will actually look. We use many different lighting techniques, effects and high-quality fixtures to create a romantic and functional evening landscape.
Thoms Bros. also uses the hub method and multi-tap transformers to prevent voltage drop, give a uniformed look between lights, and fully utilize the life of bulbs. All lights at time of installation are tested with digital voltmeters to have a voltage of 10.8 to 12. All connections have lithium grease to aid in the years of maintenance free use.
Along with the state of the art fixtures and transformers that Thoms Bros. uses for its low voltage lighting installations, we also offer a home automation system for the lighting. The X10 Pro system offers a very customized and smart system that can allow for remote control of multiple transformers and zones to meet the high demand of our clients. This will allow for customization for seasons, events, and other special needs.
