Landscape Night Lighting Resource Links...

Was just asked a question (below) from a contractor in South Africa (because of selling the Depiction Software Night Lighting product... Illuminator)...

Illuminator YouTube Video:

QUESTION:

"Although- we don't do night landscaping- would you be able to put us onto a company that specializes in the actual low energy lights? We have clients that we are doing driveways for that have been asking about these lighting effects."

My response (because I also research) was to supply him with leads to follow.  Thought reposting the links might be useful to someone.

"I don’t personally follow the landscape lighting industry, but I can offer you multiple sources to explore…" 

Lawnsite is a forum for landscape contractors (where you can join and ask questions of the group):

http://www.lawnsite.com

This Lawnsite thread is a discussion about landscape lighting trade shows and publications:

There is a publication called Turf Magazine that I get which also comes in digital versions.  Looking at the lighting ads may give you leads:

http://www.turfmagazine.com

Landscaping Network is a source.  (I get their email notices):

http://www.landscapingnetwork.com

Landscape Network - Landscape Lighting Ideas:

http://www.landscapingnetwork.com/landscape-lighting

Landscape Online is another source that also puts on an annual EXPO in the LA area that I usually attend.  (Also get their email notices.):

http://www.landscapeonline.com

You can do a lighting product search there:

CLCA California Landscape Contractors Association puts on another tradeshow that I usually attend each year:

http://www.winwithclca.org/lis/

I was able to generate a list of exhibitors for the 2012 show (that has links to their websites) and there are lighting sources in there:

http://www.clca.org/index.php?v=lis&p=inop

A tradeshow LIGHTFAIR just occurred however you can probably look at Exhibitors for lighting manufacturers:

LIGHTFAIR International 2013

http://www.landscapelightingworld.com/Lightfair-International-2013-a/325.htm

VOLT is a Factory Direct lighting source… look for lights there:

That should keep you busy.
