Outdoor lighting

Posted by wdc202 (My Page) on

I want to light up (to a level approximating a full moon) an area about 200�wide by 100�deep behind my house. I envision installing lights on a tree trunk located in the lower right hand corner of the property.
a. How high up on the tree should I place the light(s)?
b. What kind of bulbs should I use: flood lights or some other kind?
c. What wattage should I install?
d. In burying the power cable from my house to the mounting tree, how deep must the trench be? I live in Baltimore MD.
e. I want to be able to turn the light(s) on and off using a wireless remote switch. Can someone please suggest
a suitable make/model?

Thanks. ....wdc
