Veggie Gardens

Wahoo, time for summer, hopefully the spring showers are behind us and we can start to do our summer veggie gardens. It's time to start planting our tomato plants! Mmmm, can't wait to eat fresh tomatoes in late July, early August. Don't forget to properly prep the soil, fertilize and water heavily (daily) until the fruit starts to bud.

Be green and save energy, no need to have your outdoor lights turning on during daylight hours.  Please change your timers in your transformer to illuminate at 8 pm at the earliest.  This will reduce your monthly energy bill, lengthen the lifespan of your bulbs and reduce light pollution.  A win win win

Affordable Lawn Sprinklers had their service technicians attend a lighting seminar in Loudon County with Atlantic Irrigation on 24volt lighting systems for low voltage lighting.  24 volt lighting systems are reducing the amount of wire needed for lighting jobs.  Instead of installing 5-6 lights per strand of 12/2, you can now look at using 14 gauge wire or even consider installing up to 13 35 watt lights for your low voltage lighting system. 

Another benefit of this lighting system is you can run longer distances as well.  Previously, most professional lighting companies used the cliche 200' and 200 watts, meaning, you could run a wire 200 feet away from the transformer and utilize 200 watts.  Now you can run 300 and 400 feet runs without significant voltage loss.

Lastly, it also allows you to utilize a higher percentage of the transformers potential.  Previously, we were all trained to use 80% of the listed capacity of the transformer.  Now, these 24 volt low voltage lighting systems allow you use 90%. 

The bottom line, it saves not only money but also copper which just makes sense.

Don't forget, we serve the following Counties:  Loudon, Prince William, Fairfax and Montgomery.
