Editorial Reviews

Explains both the technical and creative aspects to lighting a landscape, making an outdoor area usable at night, and lighting plants indoors. Well illustrated with diagrams and photographs, many from Moyer's own award-winning designs. Considers such issues as avoiding conflicts with other design elements, the characteristics of materials and surfaces, setting locations and levels, and preventive maintenance. Also includes a list of products and vendors. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
From the Publisher
This incredibly detailed reference book by an experienced lighting designer can serve a dual purpose: It can help landscape architects who are working with lighting professionals to research some of the issues they need to discuss, and it can serve as a guide to landscape architects on smaller projects who will be doing lighting design themselves. This third edition has been updated to include guidance on how LED technology requires changes to the configuration of light fixtures. Sections on how to light residential and public spaces as well as specifics on how to light different plants, sculptures, walkways, and stairs make this a reference book designers should keep handy.
