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.

3 Reasons We Are the CSRA’s Premier Event Lighting Company

Quick riddle for you: what do the Academy Awards, the Royal Wedding, and Augusta’s Sacred Heart Garden Tour all have in common? Answer: Great Event Lighting. 

Whether it be Backyard Parties, Elaborate Weddings, Office Celebrations, or Community Fundraisers, Quality Lighting Makes a Good Event Great

Although we are best known for installing permanent residential and commercial lighting systems, did you know that we also offer temporary lighting systems for special events? For many years, we have quietly been making a name for ourselves as the CSRA’s premier event lighting company. It has been our honor to light a wide variety of important events for our customers: from backyard parties to elaborate weddings, office celebrations to community fundraisers, we shine at special events where good lighting is a must. 

So, why should you call us for your next special event?  Here are the top 3 reasons…

Our Lights…

1. Set the Right Mood for Your Special Event

Romantic, Elegant, Exciting, or Anything in-between, Let Us Create the Perfect Mood for your Special Event

We’ve all heard the term “mood lighting” used many times before. The term’s popularity is evidence of the power of light to shape our mood and experience of an event. Consider some of the most memorable events you have experienced. Whether it be a  romantic dinner with your partner, a performance piece that touched you deeply, or a particularly beautiful wedding, chances are, by intentional design (or blind luck), lighting played an important part in making that event so meaningful and memorable for you. Truly, good mood lighting has the power to make a good event great. Whether you are aiming for romantic, intimate, exciting, or anything in between, we have the practical experience, technical skill, and artistic sensibilities needed to help you create the perfect mood for your next special event.

 2. Make Your Event Planning Easier

 

Make event planning easier with Outdoor Lighting in augusta and aiken

Let Us Help you Take Care of Some Crucial Aesthetic and Practical Details to Ensure that your Special Event is Beautiful, Seamless, and Low Stress.

Let’s be honest – planning special events can present a quite a challenge. Consider all the details an event planner has to keep track of: does the caterer have all the equipment they need? Is the florist on time and on track? Which guests still need directions? Every event requires planners to juggle a lot of details, but the best events create a mood (and a host) that is calm, complimentary, and engaging. When you choose us, we help you by taking care of some of the most crucial aesthetic and practical details to ensure that your special event is beautiful, seamless, and most importantly, low stress. We will quietly set up our lights at a convenient time before your event, test/program them on site, and quickly take them down at a time that works best for you. With us, you get to rest a bit easier, trusting that there will be no hassle, no fuss, and no problems with our lights. We know that you’ve got enough to worry about, so let us help you enjoy the event you have worked so hard on.

3. Provide Lighting of Some of CSRA’s Most Prestigious Events  

garden festival page marker editWe have worked hard to become the official event lighting company for some of the most discerning clients and prestigious events in the CSRA. We are proud to provide the lighting  for the Sacred Heart Garden Tour, Swamp Soiree, Blue Jean Ball, Historic Augusta’s Cotton Ball and Woodrow Wilson boyhood home, and many other stalwart community events. These events all have a well-deserved reputation, and we our happy to lend our lights to compliment and enhance the popularity and success of these must-attend events.

When you choose Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Augusta and Lake Oconee, we offer you a free consultation to learn about your event, and to design a lighting package that will best compliment the goals and mood of your special event. Once we know your goals, we will design custom event lighting package for your event and offer you a competitive quote while you wait. If you would like to learn how our lights can help create the perfect mood for your next special event, give us a call at  (706) 722-5711 in Augusta / Aiken or (706) 484-9711 in Lake Oconee / Athens.

Thanks for letting us be part of these special moments in your life,

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,

Its that Time of Year Again in Augusta…

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Augusta & Lake Oconooe Outdoor Lighting

Its been a long winter, but Spring has come to Augusta.
Is your home looking its best?

I don’t know what I’d do without my wife, my office manager, or my cell phone. These 3 consistently remind me of the important things I tend to forget. This week, I am going to remind you about 2 important things that are coming up very soon this time of year…

Our Lights Look So Good, & are So Inexpensive to run, you Will Leave Them on All Night Long.

Our LCA timers take away the hassle. They are very convenient, extremely customizable, & always reliable.

1). Daylighting Savings is this weekend! This Sunday, we ‘spring forward’ an hour. Yes, we lose an hour of sleep, but we also gain back some of those precious hours of daylight in the evening hours. So, this is a remember to find every clock in your house, car, and office and set it forward one hour.

pool & Arbor lights augusta georgia

Is your pool ready for those hot summer nights?

What a hassle, huh? Forget one clock and you might show up somewhere pretty late. Wouldn’t it be nice if your whole house was like your cell phone, automatically updating to the correct time when needed? Thankfully, you don’t have to hassle with our lights.

At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Augusta and Lake Oconee, we have a lighting timer system that we are very proud of. Our ‘Lighting Control Automation’ (LCA) system is an intuitive, state-of-the-art system that our customers absolutely love. I’ll give you three quick reasons why our LCA system is the best timer available on the market today.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives - augusta / aiken Pool Party

Custom program your LCA timer for a variety of themes that fit your lifestyle. This one is called: “evening swim”

Our LCA timers are…CONVENIENT: Our LCA timers utilize cutting edge coordinate-based software that automatically adjusts for constantly changing conditions like local sunrise/sunset, daylight savings time, etc. This makes our timer system extremely convenient – you don’t have to reset your timer every few months, you just enjoy lights that work right when you need them to. CUSTOMIZABLE: Our LCA timers are also fully customizable to meet your individual needs (and wildest desires). Depending on your preferences, we can program our lightsto come on at different times, in different zones, and even with different devices (switches, computer tablets, cell phones). Get this – not only can we program our lights, but we can also integrate any existing inside or outside light into our LCA system. This means we can program ‘smart lighting themes’ for your home. Some of our popular themes include the ‘welcome home’, “evening party’, ‘midnight snack’, ‘on vacation’ themes, and many more. Our LCA timers options are limited only by your imagination. CONSISTENT: Best of all, our LCA timers never suffer from weak signal issues, making them extremely consistent and reliable. Our timers ensure that your lights work like you want them to, every time you need them to.

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

How does your garden glow? Our famous “Masters Makeover” brings new life to this pond at night.

2). The Masters Golf Tournament is less than a month away! Yes, its tournament time in Augusta. Many of our customers bring in special guests and we are in the business of bringing that world-famous ‘Masters Makeover’ to each and every home we light. For the next few weeks I will tell you about some of the major ways that we can help you bring that ‘Masters Makeover’ to your home or garden.

3 Ways an LED Conversion Maximizes Your Lighting Investment

ANN-033-retouched

These winter days are longer, which gives our lights a chance to really shine. Keep reading to learn why you can run our lights longer with confidence.

So, its snowing in Augusta. I hope today finds you inside your home, staying nice and warm. I also hope you and your family get a chance to get out and enjoy this snow.

The chance to enjoy snow is rare around these parts. In the south, snow is something we only occasionally enjoy, when the conditions are just right. It is fine to occasionally enjoy snow, but not your lights. You’ve invested in your lights and you should enjoy them regularly.

Here in the dead of winter the days are longer, which means that our lights have a chance to really shine. As of late, one of our most popular services is an LED conversion, done during an Annual Maintenance Plan service. LED conversion has become so popular because most of our customers realize that this the ideal time of year to keep your lights running longer, and they see how our LEDs help them maximize their lighting investment in (at least) 3 primary ways.

A Riddle - Which Set of Outdoor Lights is Halogen and which is LED?

Click here for a full sized pic – see if you can tell which one is halogen and which is LED…

1. Our LEDs Look Great – Some people have experienced LEDs that give off an unappealing or artificial color light (think of car headlights). Sadly, some LEDs do look unnatural, but most of those lights utilize a cheap low quality bulb. At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Augusta and Lake Oconee, we only use LED lights with Cree-chip technology, which is the highest quality LED bulb available on the market today. As you can see in the pictures, our LED lights give off the same color temperature and effect that people love in our halogen bulbs. The Cree bulbs we use register very well of the CRI-scale (Color Rendering Index), proving that all of our lights will deliver a natural glow, giving your house our signature warm, inviting, and elegant look.

*Need more proof? Look at the picture above. Can’t tell a difference? Exactly my point..

Augusta-landscape-lighting

An LED conversion helps your lights look better for longer
with twice the bulb rating and twice the warranty (2 yrs)

2. Our LEDs Last Longer – LEDs also maximize your lighting investment by increasing the longevity of your lighting system. Our LED bulbs are able to be retrofitted into all of our fixtures and are rated for twice as many hours as their halogen counterparts.  With a LED conversion, we also warranty your bulbs for twice as long as our standard bulbs (2 yrs on all LED bulbs), giving you the peace of mind that comes with the best warranty in the business.

LED copper path light - energy efficient and beautiful

Our LEDs are 85% more efficient than their halogen counterparts, meaning you’ll enjoy their beauty longer while also saving money. Now, that’s a great deal.

3. Our LEDs Save Money – Last, but certainly not least, LEDs save you money each and every night you run them. Some people wrongly assume that the up-front costs of LED lighting will eliminate any savings LED lights might bring. But, this is not true. Since LED lights are 85% more efficient than standard halogen bulbs, you will quickly notice a savings on your utility bills. This means that you can run your lights as long as you want without worrying about the cost. Higher efficiency means that you will save some of your hard-earned green while also being green and helping conserve energy and the environment.

For the reasons listed above, many of our customers choose to upgrade to LED bulbs during their Annual Maintenance Plans (AMP), and since LEDs use so much less energy than their halogen counterparts, an upgrade pays for itself over time.

Please call us if you would like to learn more about the benefits of an LED conversion during your Annual Maintenance Plan. If you know you are ready to give LEDs a chance, or just have some more questions you want to ask, you can reach us at (706) 722-5711 in Augusta / Aiken or (706) 484-9711 in Lake Oconee / Athens.  If you would like some more examples of our work, you can also visit our website to look through some of our favorite Augusta outdoor lighting photos.

Looking to add that ‘special something’ to your home, business or special event?
Our lights bring a warm elegance wherever you place them

Why an outdoor lighting month? Our goal is to raise consumer awareness about the important products and services we offer. People spend lots of money on their homes each year, and we believe that outdoor lighting is one of the best investments you can make. Whether it be increasing security, extending living space, or enhancing the beauty of your home or office, these are just a few of the dividends that come from an investment of outdoor lighting. Best of all, an investment  in outdoor lighting keeps paying dividends night after night, month after month, year after year.

Why October? Think about it – October is the ideal time of year to raise consumer awareness about outdoor lighting – the days are getting shorter, evening comes sooner, its still warm enough to enjoy evenings outdoors, festive entertaining opportunities abound, and some people have even started to think about holiday lighting. In these ways and more, October is a month that lets our lights shine.

If you are still on the fence about purchasing outdoor lighting, or just want a visual example of what outdoor lighting could do for your home, business or special event, check out this incredible National Outdoor Lighting Month website to see what you’ve been missing.

If you would like see a free demonstration of how our lights specifically enhance the beauty and security of your home or business, we would love to give you a free home demonstration.
