Care must be taken when installing exterior lighting products especially ground buried lights. All the products are sold fit for purpose and tested before given an IP rating. The weakest point is generally the installation of the product where adequate drainage has not been made for ground buried lights or poor cable joints have been made which are not 100% water tight and will allow water to penetrate weak joints. There are a number of waterproof enclosures available on this site along with heat shrink cable joint kits and resin gel packs or 'magic gel' to fill the junction boxes and make a watertight enclosure.
Lamp colour is determined by the Kelvins and a lamp which is 2,700 kelvins is classed as warm white and is sympathetic to skin tones and warm brickwork. A lamp with a kelvin of 6500 is in the cold blueish white spectrum and works well against a white background and will appear brighter to the naked eye than the warmer colour spectrum.Coloured filters are good to use with the LED bulbs too especially in winter using green filters give the appearance the trees are still in leaf.
