"You've got the cake, now all you need is to light the candles!"
WHY GO LED?
Sustainable/Efficient: they use 80% less energy than Halogen
Adds Depth to Landscape
Additional Security/Visibility: in Yard at night
Low Maintenance cost/time: bulbs last 10X LONGER, 30,000 to 50,000 hours LED, (2,000-5,000 for halogen), plus we offer 5 year BULB WARRANTY.
Temperature: halogen much warmer, more susceptible to burnout of bulbs, fixtures, burning plants
Warranty/Replacement: fixtures warrantied from 15 years to lifetime, halogen are usually 1 year or less
What kind of kind of fixtures do you use?
Our favorite are a brand called DAUER. They are German made, bronze, and very durable yet beautiful. The bulbs have a 5 year warranty, the fixtures a 15 year warranty. We have a display setup that showcases our favorite fixtures that we would be happy to show you in person. We also install KICHLER, FX, and a few other brands if you a preference.
How much does it usually cost?
This depends, but a typical system is going to run $1800-$5000 depending on what you want lit. Lighting up big Live Oaks is our favorite, however these fixtures are little more than smaller lights for paths or smaller trees.
Do you install lights up in the trees shining down?
Absolutely, this is called "moonlighting" or downlighting. We can rent lifts and get up in large oak trees or other trees to install these. It creates a really aesthetically incredible affect.
What about the lights with the "hats" on them that go around pathways?
Yes indeed! These are called path-lites. These are our favorite. They add a nice ambience to pathways, entrances, ect.
What if I want to upgrade from Halogen to LED? Can you do this?
Yes indeed. Sometimes we can salvage wire, fixtures, and transformers to save a little $. We will do whatever we can to make sure your lighting needs are properly cared for?
What if y'all come install lights and then one goes out?
We offer a one year service warranty, and will be glad to come back in a flash to make necessary adjustments to make sure your system is 100% operational.
Will my yard look like an airport all lit up?
No indeed! The beauty of LED is subtlety. Its about accenting certain things, and letting others fall into the background. Sometimes a nice wall wash can paint a hedge perfectly in the background, with a large oak standing out in the front as the accent piece.
