Segment 3 (running time 13:59)

Listen to this segment
More tips from Bill about lighting up the yard.

  • Before you set your lighting up permanently, just run the low voltage lighting over the ground and leave it for a few days to make sure you're happy with the setup.
  • Decide the "effect" you want to get with your lighting. Choose the lamp first, not the fixture. The lamp does all the work. The fixture just holds the lamp, so pick the lamp first.

We discuss "Task Lighting," like a barbecue light or a pool light, so you can work at night.

Caller:

  • Gary - Planted bougainvillea, but they've died in his front yard after trying several things. What did he do wrong?

Recommendation - Bougainvillea is fairly hard to kill but the root ball is very sensitive before the plant is established. Call Elgin Nursery.

Recommendation - Make sure you're not over-watering and check the drainage. Call an arborist.

Callers:

  • Diane - where does she get lightning protection?

Recommendation - For surge protection, call Austin Electric Services in Maricopa County. In Tucson, call the Solar Store. For lightning protection, call Lightning Busters

  • Larry - If your shutting down your house for the summer, why can't you shut down your water to the whole house instead of turning them off at each faucet and toilet.
