Accent your landscape without wires
Using their experience in curbing, Tygar Manufacturing created a new method for professionals to add accent lighting to landscapes. By embedding high-quality rope lighting in the back of custom landscape curbing, contractors can cast light over walkways, patios or larger areas. Customers can enjoy functional accent lighting without unnecessary wires. www.tygarmfg.com
