Tip 1: Consider lighting as early as the design phase
There is a lot involved in a garden renovation or remodeling project. The starting point is a new design in which all wishes for a beautiful – and, above all, practical garden – come together. Often the design begins with the paving, fencing and planting. But just as important is to draw lighting into the design, because lighting ensures that you enjoy the garden at night as much as during the day.

Tip 2: Draw a cable plan in the design
Determine the sight lines from the house and consider which elements in the garden should be lit. Distinguish between mood lighting in borders, for example, and functional lighting along a path on the facade near the front or back door. Make sure the design includes a cable to which the desired lighting can be connected. Here it is advisable to create zones where you can lay up to 3 cables in the garden that can be controlled separately with the SMART HUB-150 transformer and the in-lite app. Thus, each cable is a separate zone.
