12-volt garden lighting systems, consisting of a transformer, lamps, fixtures, and special cable, offer many advantages over 120-volt lighting besides the obvious factor of safety. Low-voltage lamps use electricity more efficiently, giving more light per watt of power used. 12-volt lamps also last longer than 110-volt incandescent lamps, reducing maintenance on the systems. The flexibility of the wiring — no conduit is needed — makes installation easy and allows you to move fixtures as the garden grows and changes. Sometimes standard fixtures can be wired into a 12-volt system if special lamp adapters or bulbs are used, and some 12-volt fixtures come with integral transformers for wiring to house current. Modern 12-volt systems can tackle any residential lighting job, from groups of 50-foot oak trees to the smallest city garden.
