Excerpts With Bob Lyons Sr.
LED Color: "LED's are what they call "saturated", which means they are true red (if that is the color of the bulb).
With incandescents you are changing the color by the coating on the outside of the bulb whereas the LED is only putting
out blue light or only red light (if that's the color of the LED)..."
String Lights Together "It's the wire size that determines how many strings and it's the wattage
used. If you are using 33 watts which is a typical 100 set and its is a typical 22 gauge wire, you can run three.
If it is a 20 gauge or 18 gauge wire you can run six....if you go LED you can run as many as 25 but still, conservatively,
don't run a lot together, you can break them up..."
Lighting Strategy: "If you are doing a porch, you might want to extend out from the porch and light
some things and do some things on some trees to give it depth... "
Porch Lighting: "The greenery gives you some extra rather than just having a string of lights out there
getting a whole atmosphere. We like to use a lot of wreaths, a lot of garland, and a lot of Santa Clauses, star bursts..."
