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.

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.

Tournament time is our busiest time of the year and our schedule is filling up quickly. We have a few spots still open, so call us today!

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.

Both/And: Increase the Beauty, Safety, & Security of Your Home this Summer

Your Family's Safety & Security are Priceless. Our Lights Can Help...

Your Family’s Safety & Security are Priceless. Our Lights Can Help…

Summer is almost here, and if you are like me, you are ready to sit back and enjoy those cool summer nights in your backyard. I mean, what could be better?  Well, that depends…

Try this – next time you are sitting in your backyard, take a moment to consider: how does this feel? Also consider: wouldn’t it be nice to relax in a backyard that makes you feel inspired, welcomed, safe and secure? In my mind, these are priceless feelings, especially safety and security. That said, I don’t think the desire for beauty and safety is an either/or choice with outdoor lighting, in my mind the desire for beauty and safety is always a both/and option….at least when you use the right lighting company.

At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Augusta and Lake Oconee, we aim to be that right lighting company, specializing in creating house and garden lighting systems that increase your home’s beauty, safety, and security. We talk a lot about how our lights beautify, but how do our lights promote safety and security in your home or garden? 

Pool lighting can transform your pool into a relaxing oasis

Hear a Noise? Turn on the Lights. Our LCA Timers Let You Control Your Lights from Anywhere in the House

Safety: Our lights make your yard more safe in a variety of ways: beautiful solid copper pathlights will help your guests know where to walk in your yard, hidden moon-lights can illuminate the dark spots in your yard with a soft glow from above, and custom pool lights increase visibility in your pools and water features. You, your family and guests will breathe easier and be safer with our lights pushing back the darkness, bringing our signature warm, welcoming and elegant lighting effect to your backyard.

Increase you family's safety by lighting up your walkways and driveways

Security: Professional outdoor landscape and architectural lighting not only makes your home look more beautiful and inviting, it also adds a “blanket of security” to your home and yard. It is proven that homes and businesses with strategically placed outdoor lighting often deter potential criminals. Outdoor lighting can make it easier for you and your neighbors to see if someone tries to enter your home, but it can also help you feel more secure when you and your family come home after dark. Our LCA timers also add a another dimension of security to your home. Hear a strange noise in your yard? You can turn on your lights from anywhere in your house with our digital LCA timers. You can also set custom lighting programs, creating the look of someone being home even while you are away.  While the feeling of safety and security is priceless, our lights and LCA timers can help you get a lot closer than you were before.

A More Beautiful and Safer Home in Just a Phone Call Away

A More Beautiful and Safer Home is a Phone Call Away

We can create a custom lighting design for your home that will increase the beauty, safety and security of your property. Whether you are interested in traditional landscape lighting, or some of our security lighting features, we know you’ll breathe a little easier, knowing that your home is well lit and your family is safer at night as a result. If you’d like to see how we can make your home or business look more beautiful and feel more secure, please give us a call at (706) 722-5711 in Augusta / Aiken or (706) 484-9711 in Lake Oconee / Athens.

Water Feature Lights Bring Those “Ooh & Aah” Moments to your Augusta Home

Outdoor Lighting - Water features lighting

Our Lights can Bring Some of those Precious “Ooh & Aah” Moments to Your Home, Garden, or Business This Spring.

Well, its official: spring has sprung in Augusta! After such a long and cold winter, I am grateful for the warmer (and greener) days that lie ahead. Most of all, I am looking forward to soaking in some of those “ooh and aah” moments of spring and summer.

Do you know what an “ooh & aah” moment is?  I think about the amazing Fourth of July Fireworks finale at Patriots Park, showing my grandkids around a flashing firetruck, or sitting by the campfire, gazing up at a clear and starry night sky. When I think of “ooh & aah” moments, I also think of those moments when a new customer gets a first glimpse of what our lights can do for their home, garden or business. My favorite part of my job is that I get to give people those rare and precious “ooh & aah” moments every time I demo or install a new lighting job.

Pools, Spas, Ponds, Streams, Waterfalls, or Fountains – Our Lights Will Make Your Water Features Shine at Night

At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Augusta and Lake Oconee, we can bring an “ooh & aah” moment to your home this spring. Of all the kinds of lights we install, water feature lighting virtually guarantees an “ooh & aah” from even the most demanding of customers. I generally group water features into 4 primary categories: functional (pools/spas), natural (ponds/streams), focal (waterfalls/fountains), and miscellaneous (docks, etc) water features. Allow me a moment to tell you about how we like to light up each one…

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives - Pool Lights

Our Pool Lights are Beautiful, Functional, and Sturdy

Pool & Spa Lighting – Pools and spas are functional water features because they are meant to be jumped on, swam in, and relaxed by. Pool lighting is, by far, our most popular form of water feature lighting. It is functional because pool lights not only have to create a relaxing environment for a nighttime swim or evening entertaining, but they also have to stand up to more wear-and-tear than other kinds of lighting. As you can see in the photos, high quality pool lighting makes all the difference. Our lighting will set the mood while also providing a greater sense of safety and security for your loved ones as they enjoy your pool or spa at night. When we design a pool or spa lighting system, we create a lighting scheme that is beautiful, water-resistant, and sturdy, standing up to landscapers, children, and the challenges of water-based lighting.

Pond, Streams, Natural Landscapes Lighting in Augusta & Lake Oconee

We Specialize in Bringing Out the Hidden Beauty of Natural Landscapes – What Could We Do For Your Home?

Pond & Stream Lighting – Pond and stream lighting are, by definition, natural water features. As such, we aim to highlight the inherent beauty of your water-based landscape. Whether you live next to a babbling brook, or near a pond, natural water features provide the “oohs & aahs” like nothing else. So, why not enjoy your beautiful water features at night? Everytime I look in my backyard at night, I am reminded of the inherent and hidden beauty of creation. We have a small pond surrounded by a few trees and I love to watch how our weeping willows reflect off the surface of the water. Over the years, I have found that natural water features connect us to something greater than ourselves, and it is our aim to accent the naturally breathtaking features of your landscape at night.

Waterfall, Fountain and Focal Lighting in Augusta & Lake Oconee

We Love to Light up Waterfalls & Fountains Because they Offer an Impressive and Ever-changing Perspective

Waterfall & Fountain Lighting – Focal water features are some of our favorite kinds of water features to light. Waterfalls and fountains are especially fun, because they offer a unique perspective that is impressive and and ever-changing. Few other things help your home or business feel like a resort more than focal water feature lighting. Since waterfalls and fountains possess inherently elegant and soothing qualities, perfectly-placed, well-designed lights will provide an incredible accent. Imagine the soothing, shimmering droplets of water cascading down, encouraging you and your guests to relax, breathe deep, and soak in the serenity.

No Matter how Unusual Your Project or Wild Your Idea, we Guarantee you Will “Ooh & Aah” When we are Done

Miscellaneous Lighting – While we consider all of our lighting projects to be custom jobs, some types of water features require a little more customization than others. For example – dock lighting. Over the years, we have installed lights on docks, above docks, and even under docks (in the water). Whether you want to travel safely on a midnight boat ride, sit down enjoy the gentle breeze off the water, or simply see the fish swimming by, our lights can help. No job is too tough and no challenge too much, let us know what you want and we bet we can make it happen.

I hope you are enjoying our recent weather warm-up. Recently, it has been so beautiful and that I have forgotten all about that nasty ice storm, taking solace in the fact that spring is just around the corner.

Azalea Effect - Where Your Guests Get A Warm Welcome Every Night

The Azalea Effect – Give Your Guests Get A Warm Welcome Every Night

I love springtime in Augusta. The explosion of leaves, animals and flowers is a sight to behold. Next month, the world’s attention is turned upon our fair city as people from all over the globe travel here to attend our famous golf tournament. When the world looks at Augusta it sees images of perfectly groomed grass, elegantly trimmed trees, and beautiful azaleas in bloom each and every year. All of this combines to create what I call the ‘azalea effect’ –  when people see Augusta, they see something that is beautiful and elegant, yet subtle and understated. In Augusta, people see something that just looks right.
