Integrating LED into our Landscape Lighting Design @ Botanic Gardens
Apr 17 @ 11:30 am – 1:15 pm

Please join us at the Botanic Gardens April 17th for a presentation by Jan Moyer 11:30AM to 1:15PM

Janet Lennox Moyer will share how she visualizes an outdoor space to create a night environment. She will discuss issues from composition to important factors in lighting plant materials. The way LED produces light varies significantly from traditional light sources we knew so well, so, the way we use them differs. Using day and night and halogen to LED comparisons, she will share how the LED technology radically changed landscape lighting. Jan will discuss how LED lighting has propelled landscape lighting forward, providing more flexibility to create a successful solution. She will also discuss the complications that LED introduce compared to traditional technology.

Learning Objectives:
A. Difference in light production and the effect on lighting compositions
B. Advances LED Technology brings to Landscape Lighting
