MAKE YOUR OUTDOOR SPACE UNIQUE
IN 4 STEPS
Before one light goes in the ground it is very important for us to understand what your home means to you.
What are your favorite features, what in your landscape brings you peace, how do you really use the space? Is it for relaxing, is it for entertaining?
Knowing these things is very important to creating a lighting design specifically tailored to your needs and wants. Every project is different and every client, even more so. Our Initial consultation is key to designing the right lighting for you!
During our initial consultation we ask a ton of questions to get at the heart of the project.
What do you love about your home?
What concerns do you have? Are there dark steps that someone can trip on?
Are there some dark spots that you feel people can hide in?
Are you lighting for you or for your neighbors? (Do you want to make them jealous, that is!)
There are so many reasons to light and so many reasons not to light. Once we completely understand what you ultimately want to achieve with your lighting, we can work on creating your digital lighting design.
If you have existing landscape plans, we can overlay the lighting design directly to it, or if needed, we can have new landscape plans generated for you.
This plan will specify the type and location of each specific piece of equipment along with the wattage, beam angle, color temperature and any other pertinent details that are needed for the installation crew. It will also include wiring diagrams and electrical load information that is necessary to ensure a flawless execution.
Notes and descriptive images will also be provided within the proposal to explain and give visual aid as to what can be expected.
TYPE OF LIGHT
For every element to be illuminated, determine
the type of lighting
This can be done by
Broad, bright light alternating with
fixtures with a low light intensity
produces an attractive lighting
effect that enlarges the perceived living environment of both your
yard and home.
Although most of the equipment will be specified for an exact task, some fixtures will have direct style implications that are best left to you. Style and finish are very important to the overall finished look.
At times, you want your fixtures to blend with the environment, making them unnoticeable until the lights are on. Other times, you want the beauty of the fixture to seen as part of the architecture or landscape. Path lights for example offer unlimited style choices. We may make recommendations on a style that will work well with your project, but we want your input as well.
Once we iron out those final details, your Digital Lighting Design Proposal, along with your feedback on fixture style will be compiled to create your Project Estimate.
