Pond lights are essential for enjoying your garden
sanctuary after dark. Pond lighting also assures greater safety
around water features by highlighting the different depths of your
pond. Use a combination of light sources to illuminate your
garden pond and waterfall. Submersible lights can be placed in the

watt transformer should have a maximum of 270 watts of watts. That
would be equivalent to (5) 50 watt lights and (1) 20 watt light.
Please Note: Some pond lights will come with their own
#3 - Combo Underwater Lighting and Landscape Lighting.
Don't only think of adding pond lights to light up the water. Make
sure to add some landscape lighting to show off your landscape and
set the tone.
