Opened October 6, the Nancy Rutchik Red Maple Rill is the newest and premier addition to the Dallas Arboretum. The 2 acre rill features a collection of over 80 varieties of 200 signature Japanese Maples that follow a winding stream and paved walkways leading into the Martin Rutchik Concert Lawn. Rather than using the R40 175W mercury vapor lamps that would have required ballast boxes to be mounted to trees, Lighting Science Group worked with Unique Lighting of Texas to illuminate the area with the Definity PAR30 LED bulbs.

“While the gardens are beautiful during the day, at night the lighting is so wonderful it makes you feel as though you are in a magical land,” said Nancy Rutchik, commissioner and funder of the maple grounds.

The LED bulbs used beautifully highlight the trees without costing the Dallas Arboretum unnecessary electricity and maintenance expenses; the entire system consumes only 1830 watts.  That’s about the same amount of watts used for any average hairdryer and is dwarfed by the 21,350 watts figure required by a mercury vapor lamp substitute.

Visitors now continue to return to the gardens to see them lit in the evenings during the Arboretum’s Concert in the Garden series and for various after hour’s events and wedding receptions.

Here at LSG, we believe it is important to educate users on the lighting technologies that we continue to develop.  As we often participate in the Department of Energy’s Solid State Lighting conferences, we thought now would also be a great time to begin giving demonstrations about some of the products that we currently have available to everyone. Lighting Science Group will be showcasing our line of LED lamps available under Home Depot’s EcoSmart line at the Home Depot in San Mateo, California this weekend. Educational material as well as demonstrations will be presented on the differences between LEDs, CFLs and incandescent lamps. If you are in the area, be sure to stop by to ask questions and learn more about the EcoSmart LED lamps.  The event will be on Saturday, April 30 and Sunday, May 1st from 10:00am to 2:00pm both days, and giveaways will be handed out throughout the event. We look forward to seeing everyone there.
