Thank you Gary, so much great info!
What I was requesting was that you go to your Garden Center TV "My Page" and select under the "share button", the "Blog Post" selection and write a blog post there.
You can cut and paste your comment into this blog post editor. It's easy.
I can't share a the stuff you write into a "comment" section like this.
Let me know if you need any more help.
"Double Duty Garden Décor" So many products are designed to do one thing, outside most people want their garden to look great so they install an irrigation system to help things grow. Most irrigation systems have significantly less than visual appeal. The little micro-sprayers are definitely not pretty and are easily damaged when kicked or stepped on. They make some sprinklers with dayglow colors, to help survive a stray foot, but they still only do one thing one way, spray water out away from the stationary head. >>So how do SprinkLites™ fit in? The garden is in place, the sprayers work and everything is growing, so now you want to make the garden attractive at night, solar lighting is a low cost simple option but if you have large trees or bushes, the garden is on the north side of the house, in an atrium, or courtyard without direct sun, the solar stake lights just don’t work, or are very dim for a short period of time, they might even pulse with a slow throbbing red glow like the little stakes with hummingbirds, dragonflies, and butterflies and their color changing displays. Low voltage LED lighting is the obvious energy efficient solution, the LED’s use so little power, that when controlled by a clock timer, the timer uses more power than the lights themselves. >>The original goal for SprinkLites™ creation was to solve a watering problem along a pathway lined with potted plants. Micro-sprinklers were mounted to sculptured brass lawn ornaments and directed down onto the pots, watering the potted plants and foliage between, thus creating the first phase in our dual functioning ornamental product. An interesting side benefit was no more damaged sprinklers from the mailman’s shortcut and gardener’s destructive string trimmer, the beautiful sprinklers were very visible. >>We needed path lights, but that would have made the walkway cluttered, a solution would be to make the brass ornaments of a clear acrylic, add an LED illuminator and attach the micro-sprinkler system to the heads of the sculptures running the water tube through the middle. The total and complete lighting effect from the tiny LED was amazing, the wings of the sculptures glowed brightly you can tell the different shapes from over 150’ away. Now we have a multi function product, Sprinklers with Lights combining distinct separate technologies into a useful functioning product. There are even more features and applications depending on use and power source. By using a malleable support for the sculpture lights we have the first infinitely positionable garden micro-sprayer. For maximum watering efficiency, the spray can be directed exactly where the water placement is most effective. I liked the color changing effect of creating a very soothing therapeutic display, the random colors from each of the 6 lights is mesmerizing and so subtle you might not notice. >>SprinkLites™ can be just ornamental lights enhancing other landscape lighting by adding color changing highlights to the light and dark shadows creating focal points to the environment. In a dual function roll SprinkLites™ ornamental butterfly lights become a butterfly release when placed around an arbor or trellis, adding mister nozzles creates a cool sanctuary to marvel at nature. In another roll, add spitter nozzles to the ornamental sculptures and place them around a pond, fountain, or water feature, during the day Hummingbirds seem fascinated by the small streams of water and play for almost a minute perching on the ornaments washing their head, feathers, and claws, at night the lighting cluster soothes the soul enhanced with the soothing trickling sound of splashing water. The multi function SprinkLites™ can be used indoors or outside, as a room divider or wall sconce, a table centerpiece or floral accent light bouquet. http://www.sprinklites.com http://www.hummingbirdlites.com
