April 2018 31 I n f o r m a t i o n R e q u e s t # 5 0 8 Norris proposed to the homeown- er that a golden barrel cactus be set in the available ground instead. "So we craned the golden barrel about 120 feet from the golf course parking lot into place," he re - calls. "And it fit within inches in that space. It was one of those 'meant-to-be' moments." The Outcome According to the lighting team, their work overall provides a secondary landscape after sun - set because of the different types of shadowing and dimension created. "This home has an amazing landscape during the day but the low voltage lighting creates a completely different experi - ence in the evening that is like none other," says Norris, adding, "These fixtures are what sets it off and I have continued to use them on other high-end projects where this level of quality is necessary." One other result that reflects this emphasis on distinction: Drew relates proudly that Norris was vot - ed Phoenix Home and Garden best landscape designer in Arizona - the youngest ever to win that award. LC DBM Below Trenches were hand dug for the direct burial wiring. Three 600-watt transformers provide the power for the lights. The tall cactus is an armed saguaro. To its right are an Argentine saguaro spear, and a variegated agave (in the foreground).
