Document Description
Install new pathway, overhead, and task lighting along with electrical receptacles throughout the Memory Garden at Monterey State Historic Park. The Garden is located to the rear of the Pacific House, and is used for special events. This project will make the Garden safer for nighttime use, as existing lighting is inadequate. There will be four different types of light fixtures installed: 1) pathway, 2) wallwash, 3) tree/shrub uplight, and 4) string globe lights. GFI Duplex receptacles will be installed for convenience in several new locations. All ground disturbance will be a maximum of 24" deep, trench width will be 6"-8", and most areas have been disturbed by a previous project to install irrigation in 2003. There will be archaeological testing done prior to any trenching, with monitoring during the project. Any trenching done in the vicinity of trees will be done by hand. Conduits will be located in gravel areas adjacent to the planters with branches extending to the planters for each light fixture, junction box, etc. Project supports continued use and maintenance and public safety.
