Above, Left & Right: In 2013, the owners of this Omaha, Neb., home contacted McKay Landscape Lighting to overhaul the outdoor lighting system. McKay had installed lighting in 1999, and again in 2010 under a new owner. There are 283 fixtures on site and seven transformers (900 and 1200-watt). The unusual and spectacular water bowls in the front of the home are lit front and back by four underwater brass MR-16, 35-watt halogens (Focus Industries). Two spotlights (Aurora MR-16 20-watt halogens) also direct light to the water feature. Four MR-16 20-watt downlights are inset in the portico's vaulted ceiling, with two more beneath the caps of the brick columns. Right: This is the west side of property, including the main drive and garage area. Copper MR-16, 35-watt spots uplight the maple trees. T3 wedge-base copper fixtures (Hadco, 10-watts) under the wall caps wash the stone walls. Town & Country April 2014 27 026-029.indd 27 3/27/14 1:09 PM
