Top 5 Ways We Can Help Your Garden to Glow This Summer

Its a new summer season, and that means there are new memories to be made, new sights to see, and new parties to throw. It also means a new summer focus for our blogs. Last year we had a lot of fun thinking through how we could help you to light up those “summer nights”, and this year we turn our attention to your yard and garden.

Let’s be honest – you spend a lot of time and money making your lawn and garden great. enjoy your garden at night with quality outdoor lightingSo, why should you spend any more than have to? But, also consider this – why should you just get to enjoy your investment during the daylight hours? Most of us spend most of our time at home during the evening hours, and we think you should be able to enjoy your yard investment whenever you want. Our lights will help you do this.

For the rest of the summer we are going to focus on how we, at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Augusta and Lake Oconee, can help  your yard and garden to really glow this summer season…and every season after.

Below is a quick preview: Our lights…

Every Garden Has Hidden Beauty Waiting To Be Uncovered with our lights

1. Bring out the hidden beauty of your yard at night. Most people aren’t aware that the evening hours offer a fresh and unique perspective of your garden. Yet, as this Gazebo picture shows, there are areas of hidden beauty in every garden at night just waiting to be uncovered. Summer nights offer the ideal opportunity to see your garden in a whole new light. Let us work hard to help you bring out the hidden beauty of your garden and see your yard in a whole new light this summer.

2. Make outdoor entertaining a breeze. Whether it be a cocktail party or a family picnic, our lights always help keep the party going. Quality outdoor lighting means that your guests don’t have to leave when evening comes; and, unlike other lesser lighting fixtures, we guarantee that our lights will always be beautiful, dependable, and versatile. This means you can rest assured that no matter the celebration, our lights will be there to help you make the most of any event you will ever host.

3. Highlight your favorite features of your yard. Nighttime is the ideal time to accent what you desire to be the focal point of your yard. Think about it this way – the evening offers you a black canvas to draw attention to your favorite parts of your lawn and garden. Like the artist Rembrandt, the original “painter of light”, we bring light into places where it does not exist, accenting the parts of your yard that you most want to highlight.

4. Bring greater safety and security to your yard. We all instinctively know that safety and security are priceless feelings. Our lights increase your yard’s safety with beautiful path lights, helping people know where to walk in your yard, hidden moon-lights illuminating the ground with a soft glow from above, and pool lights increasing visibility in your pools and water features. As for security, you and your family will breathe easier as our lights push back the darkness and illumine the dark spots of your yard.

5. Enhance Your Home’s Beauty Every Season. It seems like the spring leaves have only just arrived, and we know you want to savor every moment of this lush green haven. Whether it be the blazing colors of fall, or the beautiful blooms of spring, our experienced lighting professionals know how to design and install a lighting system that ensures your home will look beautiful each and every season. Our incredible warranty also guarantees that your home will keep looking great, night after night, season after season, year after year.

This is just a quick preview, and I look forward to unpacking the difference our lights can make for you lawn and garden this summer. And, when you are ready to see how we can help your garden to glow, please give us a call at (706) 722-5711 in Augusta / Aiken or (706) 484-9711 in Lake Oconee / Athens.

It’s Spring (Cleaning) Time! (aka – Top 5 Reasons You Need our Annual Maintenance Plan)

flower lighting Augusta Lake Oconee GA

Spring is here! Do your lights need a quick refresh?

 

Well, its official – Spring is here! You know what that means – its time for warmer weather, fresh blooms, and…spring cleaning. Some people dread spring cleaning, but I kinda like it. Whether it be my house, my trucks, my yard…I like to spruce things up. I like to take a little time to make my stuff look like new again. A little bit of hard work often can make a big difference.

Service Plans for Outdoor Lighting

Let Us Spruce Up Your Lighting System This Spring

How do your outdoor lights look lately? Do they look as good as when they were first installed? Truth is, every outdoor lighting system will eventually need servicing. Now, our systems need less maintenance than most because we install it right the first time. But, your yard is (literally) a living and breathing thing. Whether you plan for it or not, your yard will change over time. You need a lighting system that can change with it. You need a lighting company you can count on. Don’t worry, we can help. I’ll give you 5 reasons why you should let us spruce up your lighting system with our Annual Maintenance Plan this spring.

When you purchase an Annual Maintenance Plan (AMP) with Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Augusta and Lake Oconee you get the benefit of…

1. Refreshing Your Lighting System – When you purchase an AMP from us, we will come out and make your outdoor lighting system look and work like new again. Not only will we change all of your bulbs, but we will also troubleshoot any other issues your system might be experiencing – we will clean your fixtures, repair broken fixtures, and re-bury any exposed wire. We will also re-evaluate your lighting design and reposition lights to account for any changes to your house or additions to your yard. We even trim trees and shrubbery to ensure that your property is receiving the optimal lighting effect.

Our LEDs Look Great, Longer
With an LED conversion, you get twice the warranty coverage – 2 yrs worth.

2. Extending Your Warranty – When you purchase our AMP, we will extend your bulb warranty for an additional year, or an additional 2 years for an LED upgrade (see below). If you keep continuous service coverage with us after installation, we will even continue to cover your fixtures and transformers beyond their original warranties. We easily have the best warranty in the business and this means no service charges, no bulbs out, and most important to you – no fuss.

3. Upgrading to LED – When you purchase an AMP, it is the perfect time to consider upgrading to LED bulbs. LED technology has developed to the point where it meets our high standards and expectations. Our LED bulbs utilize the new CRI (Color Rendering Index) technology to ensure a soft, natural light while using less energy. LEDs typically use 80% less energy than their halogen counterparts, which means that an upgrade pays for itself over time. All of our light fixtures are able to be retrofitted to LED, and doing so doubles your warranty to 2 years on each LED bulb.

Our Reliable Service Ensures that Your Lights Continue Look Great Year After Year

Our Reliable Service and Industry-leading Warranty Ensures that Your Lights Continue Look Great Night after Night, Year After Year

4. Adding-on (at a Discount) – For the next 3 months, we are running a spring special – When you schedule an AMP we will give you 5% off any add-on to your lighting system. This limited-time discount includes any light fixtures, transformers, timer system upgrades, or light switches you decide to add.

5. Repairing A Non-OLP System – While we wish that everyone used our lights, some people decide to go elsewhere. Whether they install their own lights, or use a competitor, we often get calls from homeowners who need us to come in and fix their lighting system. While many of these people are initially unhappy they have to call us, most are glad they did in the end. Many of these new customers tell us how their lighting system ‘looks better than ever’ after we service it. We just love that.

Are you renting for Master’s? Having a party soon? Just got spring (cleaning) fever? Let us make your lighting system look and work like new again with an AMP this Spring. If you have any questions about pricing, or would like a free home consultation, call us at (706) 722-5711 in Augusta / Aiken or (706) 484-9711 in Lake Oconee / Athens.

Tree Lighting: Discover & Enjoy the Priceless Treasures in Your Yard

“Trees are your best antiques”  ~ Alexander Smith,19th cen Scottish Poet

It take a lighting professional to bring out the best in each and every tree

Our Lights Will Bring Out the Hidden Beauty of Your Trees at Night

Antiques are valuable because they simultaneously connect us to the past, present, and even the future. Antiques are our dearest heirlooms, and as such, they are meant to be preserved, displayed, and admired. Trees are our best antiques. There is something about a beautiful tree that makes us stop and admire the beauty of the world around us. A majestic towering tree reminds us of those who have gone before us and those who will come after. Trees also provide beauty to our homes, give us shade from the summer heat, and spread a sense of relaxation. Indeed, trees are our best antiques.

Isn’t a shame to only be able to admire trees in daytime? So much of our time at home is spent in the evening hours. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to enjoy our trees when we are at home most? Imagine sitting outside on a fall evening gazing at one of your trees as the sun sets and, at the perfect moment in the settling dusk, a soft light washes over your tree with an elegant glow. Later, as you turn off your bedroom lights, you stand by the window gazing outside and taking in the beauty of your the yard once more before you sleep. When done right, outdoor lighting not only extends your usable outdoor space, it also enhances your home.

Lighting Up Your Augusta Garden

At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Augusta and Lake Oconee, we know how to enhance your home at night. Our outdoor lighting design team offers a high level of experience and artistry to help you determine the best type of outdoor lighting for your space. We know the right type of fixtures, the ideal angles, and the best techniques to achieve the most appealing look to compliment your house, outdoor space, and ornamental trees.

Down lighting your garden

Moon lighting mimics the soft glow of the moon

When thinking about tree lighting, there are two very different techniques to consider depending on the result you are trying to achieve. If you want to illuminate an ornamental tree with beautiful branches, such as a willow, oak, or palm tree, the best choice is “canopy-lighting”. With “canopy-lighting” we place a discrete, wide beam ground light in an optimal place to light up the trunk, crown, and canopy in a very elegant way. Another technique that we commonly use is called “moon lighting”. This method mimics the shadowing and light naturally given off by the moon. We carefully mount our custom light fixtures in the ideal places to cast light down through leaves and branches, giving a natural, soothing, and comfortable feel to your outdoor space.

Spend Your Nights Gazing at the Priceless Antiques You Never Knew You Had

Both of these lighting techniques produce amazing, yet unique results. If you love the trees in your yard, and are interested in highlighting their natural wonder, please call us at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Augusta. If you want to know what your trees could look like at night, let us come out and give you a free demonstration. Soon you could be spending your nights gazing at the elegant antiques you never knew you had.

Outdoor Lighting For Every Season

CINN-001It seems like these sweet summer nights have only just arrived, but soon the days will get shorter, the air will become crisper, and the leaves will begin to change. Ask any student and they will tell you, fall is coming (and it will be here before we know it). Thankfully, our outdoor lights can help you savor these last weeks of summer, but did you also know that our lights can enhance the beauty of your home in unique and interesting ways each and every season?

Whether it be the blazing colors of fall, or the beautiful blooms of spring, our experienced lighting professionals know how to design and install a lighting system that ensures your home will look beautiful each and every season. Our incredible warranty also guarantees that your home will keep looking great, night after night, season after season, year after year.

Allow me to give you a few concrete examples of how Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Augusta and Lake Oconee can enhance the beauty of your home each season…

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives - Pool LightsSummer – Your yard is used more during the summer than any other time of the year. The days are longer, but the party doesn’t have to stop when the sun goes down. Whether it be pool, garden, or deck lighting, we can help you get the most use out of your yard when the weather is most enjoyable. We know you want to savor every moment of this lush green haven, and we have spent all summer showing you how our lights can help your garden to glow.

Tree LightingFall – This is also a wonderful season for outdoor lighting. The leaves are changing from lush greens to blazing reds, orange and yellows. As beautiful as your trees, flowers, and gardens look during the day, they are even more beautiful at night with our lights. While do-it-yourself lighting kits and fly-by-night lighting guys are less expensive, they also lack the design expertise and warranty you get with our company. When we design a lighting system, we craft it to compliment all seasons and all viewing perspectives. This means that you can help you to enjoy how the leaves are changing every night of fall, from the comfort of your favorite chair.

Illuminate_TnailWinter – Many people are surprised to learn that winter is an amazing season for outdoor lighting. But, think about it: the leaves are gone, the days are short and the nights are long. Barren branches bring a new, beautiful, and interesting perspective to your trees and landscape. Since the days are short, you actually get the most use out of your lights during these long winter nights. Yes, the nights are longer, and your family will be at home most during these evening hours. We design each lighting systems to not only beautify your home, but also to increase the safety and security of your home at night. Whether going to/from your car, taking out the trash, or simply watching your favorite television shows, our lights help you and your loved ones to feel (and more importantly, be) more safe as the sun goes down.

flower lighting Augusta Lake Oconee GASpring – There is nothing quite like spring in Augusta, and nothing quite captures the ‘Masters magic’ and beautiful blooms like a quality lighting system designed by our outdoor lighting artisans. As our lights highlight the beautiful blooms of spring, you and your guests will be reminded that the long wait of winter is ending, that longer days and warmer weather are just around the corner. When the world looks at Augusta in spring it sees images of perfectly groomed grass, elegantly trimmed trees, and beautiful azaleas in bloom each and every year. When people see Augusta, they see something that is beautiful and elegant, yet subtle and understated. Many of our customers rent their houses out for guests, others invite special friends to visit, but all want to give their homes that “Masters makeover”. They want their homes to look beautiful and elegant, yet subtle and understated. This also describes the lighting effect that we are known for, and that we guarantee to bring to each and every home we light.

If you have any questions, or would like a free home consultation, to learn how we can help you home to look great season after season, call us at (706) 722-5711 in Augusta/Aiken or (706) 484-9711 in Athens/Lake Oconee.

How Does Your Garden Glow? Rembrandt, Backyard Stories, and Accent Lighting

Every Garden Has Hidden Beauty Waiting To Be Uncovered

Highlight the Best Parts of Your Yard

Did you know that our lights can actually refocus the way your yard looks at night? Its true. By highlighting your favorite features of your yard, our lights can help you create the landscape of your dreams.

In fact, nighttime is the ideal time to accent what you desire to be the focal point of your yard. Think about it this way – the evening hours offer you a black canvas to draw attention to your favorite parts of your lawn and garden. You may not have considered it before, but the painting metaphor fits what we do fairly well, because we consider ourselves to be artisans of outdoor lighting, and we draw inspiration from a wide variety of other artists, like painter Rembrandt Van Rijn.

prodigal_son

“The Prodigal Son” by Rembrandt

Long before Thomas Kinkaid, Rembrandt (1606-1669) was known as “the painter of light”. This is because he started with a black canvas and added in light layer by layer, emphasizing the features he most wanted to highlight in his paintings. For example, take “The Prodigal Son” painting here: notice how Rembrandt uses light to draw attention to the characters and relationships portrayed. While the aloof older brother (on the right)  is  brighter than the background characters, he remains a secondary and relatively dark character in the painting, as in the story itself (Luke 15:11-32). By his use of light, Rembrandt draws our gaze onto the true focal point of the story – the relationship between the father and prodigal son, particularly on the welcoming hands of the father.  Through his use of light, Rembrandt tells a powerful story without saying a word. This is the power of art, and of light, to tell a story that intrigues, inspires, and welcomes us in.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Augusta and Lake Oconee Gazebo and Garden Arbor Lighting

Like Rembrandt, we Start with a Dark Canvas and Add Light Layer by Layer, Creating a Beautiful Work of Art.

Whether it is the “The Prodigal Son” or one of his many self-portraits, Rembrandt’s paintings remain some of the most beautiful in the art world. Rembrandt inspires us because we also start with the dark canvas of night. We bring light into places where it does not exist, accenting the parts of your yard that you most want to highlight. While we would never claim to be the Rembrandt of outdoor lighting, we do think that the effect our lights bring to your yard is priceless. Tell us what you want to highlight, and we guarantee you’ll agree.

Our Masters Makeover makes this pond and waterfall glow at night.

What Story do you Want Your Backyard to Tell?

Like Rembrandt, we can use light to tell a story in your yard – want to highlight the tranquility of your backyard? Let us accent that beloved water feature with customized submersible lighting fixtures.  Want to portray your backyard as an evening oasis? We can feature your favorite plants, flowers and trees with the lights that accents the unique beauty of each. Want to create a cozy atmosphere for evening entertaining? Let us light your sitting/eating area moon lights from above and deck lights from underneath. So the most important question is: what story do you want your backyard to tell? Answer that and we’ll take care of the rest…

If you have any questions or would like a free home demonstration to experience how our artisan lights can tell a story in your yard, give us a call at (706) 722-5711 in Augusta / Aiken or (706) 484-9711 in Lake Oconee / Athens.

Hope to hear from you all soon,

A Resolution You Can Keep: Help Your Home Look Its Very Best at Night

A Warm Welcome at Night

Let Us Help Your House Look Its Very Best At Night

 

Happy (Chilly) New Year!

I hope you all are staying warm and safe during this cold spell. I also hope you had a wonderful holiday season, enjoying some good time with your friends and family, welcoming in the 2014.

Whether it be getting in better shape, stopping a bad habit, or learning a new skill, each New Year brings so many resolutions. Many will join a gym, or start a new diet, resolving to look and feel better in 2014. Believe it or not, some folks actually keep their resolutions, and those people are very happy they did what it took to look and feel their best.
