What is the cost for Garden Lighting?

The answer is what everyone loves to hear; it depends. Every homes personality is as different as the Home owners themselves. Inviting our Lighting Design Specialist for a complimentary consultation is the first step to figuring out an approximate cost. A visit to your property will enable us to become familiar with your homes characteristics and landscape. Visiting your home will also allow us to talk and discuss your personal taste and thoughts about what you want your garden lighting to do for your home. Most importantly, we want to be sure to provide a quality design that can meet the range of your investment.

How long has your company been in business and who have you worked for in our area?

We have been involved in the landscape industry for over 20 years. In 2003, however, we realized the potential to succeed as lighting professionals and forged ahead with only outdoor lighting services in our horizon. Since then, we have installed and serviced over 1,500 lighting systems. The knowledge and skill we have accumulated in that time has enabled us to deliver quality service at a professional level.

Will LED lights be used in my lighting system?

LED lighting has come a long way in the last few years and is all we do now a days. We chose LED lighting for several reasons, all of which are a benefit to home owners. LED systems are able to do what halogen systems from the past could not. LED systems enable us to more easily expand our designs, while simultaneously using less power. Keep in mind that LED is no longer a futuristic invention with bugs and glitches.

LED systems are highly dependable and are often more dependable then halogen systems. LED lamps also have a life span of up to 15 years. We also use LED because of the beautiful lighting effect it creates. LED has advanced to the point where it can now mimic the soft warm yellow hew of halogen lighting to the point it's difficult to differentiate the two from one another. Ultimately, there are three reasons why we use LED systems: they last longer, they use less energy and they have a beautiful lighting effect.


How will the lights turn off and on?

The best kind of lighting system is a hands free one. It's as simple as making sure your lights turn on at sunset and turn off at midnight when they aren't needed. To do this, we use digital astronomical timers that adjust themselves through the year to whatever time the sun sets.
