    Hey guys, ran across this site, and it's exactly what I'm looking for..

    I'm in the process of building 2 off-set retaining walls, which will both be approximately 3ft in height. I really like the look of the undercover hardscape light, but my wall cap will be flush with the wall.. No overhang.

    So my question is:
    1. Will it be ok to set the light flush with the wall (according to the spec sheet, it will extend out of the wall/ wall cap approx 1.25")? I tend to think it will look ok with the cast brass color....:rolleyes:

    2. Does someone have another suggestion for another light that would be better suited for this application?

    I suppose I could off-set the top cap, but really want to avoid that if at all possible, as it will be hollow, gravel filled blocks.
