Can ground burials be installed in the sand?

Yes, ground burial lights can be installed in the sand with the help of spikes to support them. Before driving the metal bar or post into the ground, be sure there are no underneath pipelines or wires. The rebar or T-post should be hammered into the ground about 8” deep (or more profound if the environment allows). Place the light on the T-Post and slide it over. By hammering the three metal spikes into the earth, you may secure the lamp.

Are ground burials waterproof?

Yes, burial ground lights are waterproof. However, water can damage the light when the ground spot swivels on the recessed box aren’t screwed tight enough. You don’t need to do this with a led ground burial light because the light source and glass are already fixed. There is no resin in the junction box. Water can enter the junction box this way. Water can reach the site through the cable from here.

Which colour is the best for outdoor lighting?

  • Very Warm White:  This is the lowest colour temperature for white light. This type of lighting, often known as candlelight, is employed in particularly romantic, low-key settings around outdoor fireplaces and hot tubs. It’s also similar to High-Pressure Sodium (HPS), which is routinely used for street lighting and is utilised less frequently for 120v moonlighting.
  • Warm White: It is the most popular colour temperature for landscape lighting, akin to halogen-type lighting. When compared to warmer colour temperatures, it is regarded to be more welcome and relaxing.
  • Warm or Natural White: Some landscape lighting professionals favour this tone since it is noticeably cooler than warm white. In addition, it tends to bring out the greens and blues in plants.
  • Cool White: This colour, which is somewhat bluish in comparison to warm white, is occasionally used to illuminate blue vegetation (such as blue spruce). It’s also used to create the illusion of moonlight

How are ground burials installed?

  • It’s critical to select the suitable wire for the job, determined by voltage drop, amperage rating, and environmental factors. Your ground burial light will be harmed if you use the wrong wire size! Always use direct burial-rated wiring when installing by this approach. For light fixtures, dig holes and trenches, and run the cable between the lights and the power supply.
  • The hole’s diameter should be 6 inches larger than the fixture’s diameter, and its depth should be 8 inches bigger than the fixture’s height. Keep in mind that trench depth restrictions should be checked with your local ordinance. For drainage, backfill holes with 8 inches of pea gravel.
  • To guarantee a secure fit and appropriate drainage, place the led ground burial light into the hole and fill the leftover volume with pea gravel. Instead of filling the remaining volume with pea gravel, lay concrete slabs using typical masonry procedures if placed in concrete. Allow time for the concrete to solidify before moving on to the next phase.
  • Feed the proper wire through the conduit and into the in-ground light fixture’s housing. Make sure your connections are waterproof. Connected wires and wire nuts should be arranged at the bottom of the housing unit. Any surplus lead wire should be coiled beneath the fixture. Fixture must be secured to the housing. Finally, connect the power source as well as any controls.
