Why You Should Give Outdoor Lighting in Norfolk, VA, More Than a Passing Glance

While change is a constant condition in Norfolk, Virginia, one fact of life here does not change. Every home and every business in the Norfolk area looks better—or would look better—with professional outdoor lighting. That’s a strong statement, and we stand by it.

If you doubt this statement, just look around when you’re driving after dark and notice how effective outdoor lighting is in residential areas as well as at commercial establishments. If you jog or walk at night through your neighborhood (wearing a safety vest with reflectors!) look closely at homes you see with outdoor lighting. Compare these homes to their “unlit” neighbors. The difference should convince you.

Why You’ll Feel Good About Outdoor Lighting at Your Norfolk Home

We have a Norfolk client who says that, since adding outdoor lighting to her home, she gets a joyful feeling every time she arrives home at night. When she turns the corner and her home comes into view, she is glad, again, that she decided to invest in outdoor lighting. Her sheer joy is triggered by light fixtures, light bulbs and wiring.

Outdoor lighting turns out to be more than the sum of the electrical components of the lighting system. It’s intangible. It’s a feeling of pride when you view the beauty of your home and your yard at night. It’s the confidence that your home extends a welcoming gesture to your guests. It’s the certainty that you’ve done all you can to provide safe, well-lit walkways and steps at your home to eliminate potential trip-and-fall hazards.

Why You Need Outdoor Lighting in Norfolk, VA

If you’ve put time, effort and money into making your home attractive and your landscaping beautiful, you enjoy seeing it in the daytime, but where does it go at night? Into hiding, that’s where. Why let that beauty go dark every night? Enhancing the beauty of their homes at night is the number one reason our Norfolk outdoor lighting clients give for adding professionally designed and installed lighting to their homes. Landscape lighting, especially, does more than just “show off” your yard at night. It adds a range of depth and texture to your home, your landscape, your bushes, trees and gardens that you don’t see in the daytime. Outdoor lighting transforms.

The second reason our Norfolk clients give for adding outdoor lighting is to increase safety. You may know your walkways, paths and steps like the back of your hand, but do your guests? When you arrive at someone else’s home that’s not well-lit, do you wish you had a flashlight to see your way to their front door? (Note: outdoor lighting can be set up on a schedule so you don’t have to remember to turn on the “porch light.”) Have you ever stumbled when the edge of someone’s driveway wasn’t even with their grass and you took an unexpected step down in the darkness?

Third in the “why you need lighting” line-up is security. Outdoor lighting, which is usually a combination of architectural lighting and landscape lighting, eliminates the dark spots around your home and removes hiding places prowlers look for. If intruders know you or a neighbor can look out a window and see them, they will move on.

The fourth reason you need outdoor lighting in Norfolk, VA, is to increase your enjoyment of the outdoor living spaces at your home. Candlelight and tiki torches only do so much to illuminate a deck or patio. When you add landscape and safety lighting around your outdoor living spaces, you’ll find that you use those areas more frequently and longer into the night. Deck lights on stair risers are essential. Task lighting at key points around the countertop of your outdoor kitchen is extremely useful. Pool lighting simply makes the pool usable at night where it wasn’t when you had no lights. Lighting the pathway from the pool to the house is great for those summer evenings when the kids go into the pool in daylight and come out in darkness.

Why Outdoor Lighting is More Affordable Than it Used to Be

If you had outdoor lighting prior to LED technology, you’re in for a surprise. Our state-of-the-art, professional-grade LED lights are up to 80% more energy efficient than incandescent and halogen lights. If you switch to LED lights, you’ll see immediate savings on your monthly electrical bills. If you have halogen lights, we can upgrade your outdoor lighting fixtures to take LED bulbs.

Outdoor Living is Better with Outdoor Lighting in Chesapeake VA

No matter how much you enjoy spending time outdoors at the rivers, lakes and parks of Chesapeake, VA, at the end of the day you go home. Do you return to a well-lit driveway, front door and landscape, or a weak little porch light?

While the Chesapeake area offers much for the outdoor lifestyle including fishing, boating, bird watching, hiking, picnicking, etc., there’s another kind of outdoor lifestyle here, too. It takes place at your home when you sit out on your patio or deck and connect with nature.

Whether you enjoy your deck or patio in solitude, with family sharing the highlights of your day or with a rowdy bunch of good friends, it’s home. You have a place of refuge and you value your time there.

If you don’t have outdoor lighting yet at your Chesapeake home, you’re not making the most of your outdoor time. You may think you are, because you haven’t experienced the difference outdoor lighting can make at your home.

What Will Our Free Nighttime Lighting Demonstration Show You?

Our offer of a free outdoor lighting demonstration could make all the difference for you. We can show you what you’ve been missing. With several types of outdoor lighting fixtures and techniques to highlight focal points in your landscape, to light your pathways and illuminate your home’s façade, what will you choose?

A professional outdoor lighting designer from Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Virginia Beach will meet with you at your home and talk with you about what your goals are for outdoor lighting. Whether you’re thinking of safety and security, enjoying the beauty of your landscape at night or spending more time on your deck after dark, tell us about that. We’ll use the information to create a beautiful, comprehensive outdoor lighting design for your property.

At our second appointment, we’ll bring temporary lighting and set it up to approximate the lighting design we’ve created for your home. We plan to arrive shortly before nightfall and, when the sun sets, we’ll flip the switch to turn the lights on. Based on reactions of clients over the years, we predict you will be amazed, and you will become a believer in the benefits of outdoor lighting.

Choose the Outdoor Lighting Company in Virginia Beach that Truly Specializes In Outdoor Lighting

Would you rather have your outdoor lighting company handle your landscaping chores or your landscaping company handle your outdoor lighting design? You don’t need to answer that; it’s a trick question to make a point. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Virginia Beach will not attempt to plant or maintain your shrubs and flower beds. Your annuals and perennials are safe with us. Outdoor lighting is all we do.

Likewise, we caution you not to entrust your outdoor lighting to a landscaper—for two reasons. First, landscapers are usually not qualified to design and install outdoor lighting. Second, you don’t know that you’ll be able to locate the landscaper if and when you need them to fulfill a commitment in their lighting maintenance contract down the road.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives is YOUR Outdoor Lighting Company in Virginia Beach

Stick with the proven outdoor lighting professionals. Your Virginia Beach outdoor lighting is best installed and maintained by a professional outdoor lighting company in Virginia Beach, and that company is Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Virginia Beach.

In terms of qualifications, the comparisons are endless. You wouldn’t pay an attorney to maintain your healthy smile, and you wouldn’t pay a dentist to draw up contracts for your new business. Professionals do specialize, and that makes it easier to know you’re dealing with the right team.

Repairing and Maintaining ANY Company’s Outdoor Lighting Systems

Who are you going to call when your outdoor lighting needs maintenance? Regardless of who installed your lighting, and how long ago it was installed, your best bet is to call us. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Virginia Beach can repair and maintain outdoor lighting systems installed by any company. What’s more, you know where to find us. We’ll still be around when your system needs maintenance in the future. If you sign an annual maintenance plan with us, you can be certain we’ll honor it.

Now and then a local landscaping company will add outdoor lighting to its list of services offered. (This doesn’t mean they’re qualified!) They’ll even sell you an annual maintenance plan if you want one. Offering a maintenance plan implies that company will be responsive when you require fixture or system maintenance; however, many lighting customers find the landscaper will give them the run-around when called about lighting follow-up.

We saw a good bit of this mixed-message marketing from landscaping companies after the economic downturn in 2008. Like many companies, landscapers went through a period when they had less business. Attempting to replace that lost business, they added outdoor lighting to their repertoire. Later, when things picked up again, they were not as interested in lighting. If you have had trouble getting one of these companies to fulfill a lighting maintenance contract, that’s probably why.

Professional Lighting AND Professional-Level Customer Service

What do you get when you contract with Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Virginia Beach? Here’s a preview of what you can expect:

  • An outdoor lighting company in Virginia Beach that keeps its promises and shows up on time
  • Skilled, professionally-trained outdoor lighting designers and installation technicians
  • A custom-designed lighting plan unique to your home, designed to achieve your lighting goals
  • Dramatically effective outdoor lighting focusing on your landscaping (we light it, we don’t plant it!) or your home’s architectural façade or both.
  • High-quality outdoor lighting fixtures that stand up to weather, rough play and pets
  • An annual maintenance plan that is more than just a piece of paper
  • Reliable customer service from team members who are a pleasure to work with
  • No-nonsense outdoor lighting warranty coverage for your electronic lighting equipment
  • A company that always honors its maintenance plans because we love satisfied customers who stay with us year after year

What Are Your Reasons For Installing Outdoor Lighting At Your Williamsburg, VA, Home?

If you’re looking into professional outdoor lighting for your home in Williamsburg, you might think the basic question is this: to light or not to light? But first, let’s take a step back. What has brought you to this point? What situation or realization is driving you to weigh your options with regard to outdoor lighting? Looking back on conversations we’ve had with our Williamsburg clients over the years, below are several factors that led them to call us for outdoor lighting.

Beauty or safety?

When you first thought of installing outdoor lighting, was it for beauty or safety? Had you noticed a neighbor’s yard when it went from barely lit to stunningly beautiful, and you learned they’d hired a professional outdoor lighting designer? Or had you seen one too many news reports about darkened homes being more likely targets for prowlers? Either way, you win if you call Outdoor Lighting Perspectives to design and install the lighting for your home. Lighting we install for beauty will also serve as a security measure, and lighting we install for safety will also show your home off beautifully. You can’t lose!

Front yard or back?

Do you have to choose between these two opposites? No, you don’t. We definitely recommend setting up professional landscape lighting in your front and back yards. Who benefits? You do, every time you look out the window or spend time relaxing outdoors after dark. In the front, the combination of landscape lighting and architectural lighting for your home’s façade will impress your neighbors and improve your property’s curb appeal exponentially. You’ll enjoy this lighting every time you return home after dark, greeted by a warm, welcoming glow. In the back, you’re more likely to enjoy time on your deck or patio after sunset if you have the right deck and patio lighting. We can arrange that for you.

Festive or soothing?

This is a tough one. Many homeowners initially choose soothing, low-key outdoor lighting for their backyard deck and patio. What they’re looking for is relaxation and a peaceful ambiance whether it’s for themselves, relaxing with a glass of wine after dinner, or for entertaining friends. So we set that up for them, and they love it, until … they need to have a big party. They call us to install festive string lighting for the event, and they love it so much they use it all the time after that. We can set it up so you have these two different types of lighting run by two different switches. That way you can choose between festive or soothing lights on any given evening.

Professional or DIY?

For outdoor lighting in Williamsburg, VA, you need to leave the actual work to the professionals. This one’s a no-brainer unless you personally happen to be an experienced professional outdoor lighting designer and installer. Otherwise, you’ll do much better to call Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Virginia Beach to design and install outdoor lighting for your home. We’re good at this because we have training and experience and we do it every day. We’ll still need your help, though. We’ll need you to tell us why you want outdoor lighting installed (please refer to the questions above) because your goals for your outdoor lighting will guide the lighting design we create for your home. We’ll need you to tell us which specific trees, shrubs or flowers you want to use as focal points for landscape lighting. Ultimately the lighting design for your home will be a collaboration we work on together. But we’re the ones who get to climb the ladders, ok?

Beauty and safety. Front yard and back. Festive and soothing. In these dueling scenarios, the obvious answer is this: Both! Luckily, the only real decision you need to make is not whether to call us, but when to call us.

To find out why Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Virginia Beach is the most trusted name in Williamsburg, VA, outdoor lighting, call us at 757-201-9042 or email us at [email protected]. We look forward to hearing from you soon!

Maintenance, Updates & Installs for your Outdoor Lighting System

As August turns to September and kids go back to school, we begin to see a shift in the time of day the sun starts setting. September marks the first month of fall, which means nights are slowly getting darker. Whether you have a current lighting system or would like to have one installed, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Virginia Beach can help light the night for you.

Have a current outdoor lighting system?

Any number of things can disrupt or damage your outdoor lights and keep them from performing their best. To prepare for fall nights now is a great time to have your lighting system reviewed and repaired. At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives, our job is to ensure that your lighting system is in perfect shape. Give us a call if you notice:

  • Lights that are dim or out
  • Wires are exposed
  • Fixtures are crooked
  • Or if you’d like to add on to your system.

Need an outdoor lighting system?

You can have the most beautiful property in the world, but if you don’t have outdoor lighting or landscape lighting, it is completely lost when the sun goes down. An outdoor lighting company like Outdoor Lighting Perspectives can design and install a system that will highlight all the best parts of your property to increase the curb appeal and value of your home. We make sure to incorporate the architectural details, the colors and the landscaping into our overall design for the best result.

Outdoor Lighting will:

  • Provide safety and security; Get your family and friends from point A to point B safely by lighting pathways.
  • Set the mood; Whether you are indoors or out, lighting has the ability set the perfect mood for any situation: romantic, fun, eclectic.

Improve & Promote your Curb Appeal with Outdoor Lighting

Today marks the first day of August, which also happens to be the first day of National Curb Appeal Month! This special month is dedicated to helping homeowners increase the curb appeal and value of their home. Enhancing the curb appeal of your home will make it more welcoming to friends, family and neighbors, but it doesn’t have to be a big project.

If you aren’t sure where to start, here are some ideas.

Decorate your front porch. Dressing up your front porch will make your home look lived in and welcoming. If you have the space, adding a few chairs and a table creates an inviting spot to sit and relax outdoors. If you have a smaller front porch or patio, consider adding a welcome mat and wreath!

Add some flowers. Flowers bring visual interest to a space by providing color and texture. Many home improvement stores have pre-planted planters filled with a variety of different flowers and plants. Let them know how much direct sunlight the spot gets so you purchase flowers that will last. Placing planters on a porch or along a walkway are great areas to consider adding flowers or plants.

Clean up your yard. Yards naturally accumulate debris overtime. Walking around your property and clearing out grass clippings, sticks and leaves will make your yard look better, especially after a good yard mowing.

Trim your bushes. Spring and summer bring wonderful vegetation and lot of growth. Sometimes that growth results in your bushes and trees looking unkempt. Periodically cutting any wayward branches and evening out your bushes will make a big impact on improving your curb appeal. Before you do any cutting, however, make sure you reference a guide on the type of bushes and trees you have.

Add outdoor lighting. You can have the most beautiful property in the world, but if you don’t have outdoor or landscape lighting, it is completely lost when the sun goes down. An outdoor lighting company like OLP can design and install a system that will highlight all the best parts of your property to increase the curb appeal and value of your home. We make sure to incorporate the architectural details, the colors and the landscaping into our overall design for the best result.

Whatever your plans are to improve and promote curb appeal, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Virginia Beach will be there to help. Give us a call at 757-201-9042 to schedule your FREE design consultation and nighttime demonstration.

Build your Home with Outdoor Lighting Included!

We all dream about it and pin it on our boards, but it’s the researchers that are the serious ones when it comes to building your own home. There is no better time to include all of those unique features you’ve always wanted to have in your home, including outdoor lighting.

The benefit of building your own home is you get to decide all the details, from the color of the door to style of the grass you can make your home as unique as you want. The same goes for outdoor lighting. With custom design and professional installation, you can achieve the ambiance you’ve always wanted for the outdoor spaces of your home.

Consider these benefits when doing research on building a new home and whether outdoor lighting seems like an option for you.

There is never a better time than now

Installing outdoor lighting can mean a lot of digging and replacing of plant material and sometimes even concrete. If you can plan your outdoor lighting design and installation around the landscape, hardscapes and even pavement, the less destruction we will do to your property and the more unique the lighting installation will be to your home as well as it was designed around the home rather than to meet current home layout.

Plan your outdoor lighting to compliment your landscape

Designing and building a home means you have the opportunity to take a blank canvas and make it your own. While designing your landscape with the right plant materials and colors to compliment your home, we will work exclusively with you and your landscaper to create subtle, yet vibrant outdoor lighting that will allow you to enjoy the landscape you’ve chosen for your outdoor living space long after the sun goes down.

The payment can be built into the mortgage

The beauty of building a new home is you can get luxury items and build them into the cost of your mortgage. Calculating the system cost in a mortgage calculator will allow you to know what style and areas on your property you could imagine outdoor lighting working for you and your family.

We’ll work with your contractor to ensure no set backs

From start to finish, we’ll collaborate closely with your contractor to know the schedule for the lighting installation. This will allow you, the homeowner, to worry about the significant details that need to be made to get your home built and finished within the deadline goals.

Installing outdoor lighting will allow your family to enjoy their new home for years to come. Call Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Virginia Beach at 757-201-9042 to discuss your outdoor lighting design needs. We look forward to helping you light the night!

Don't Spoil your Nighttime Views with Bright Lights!

The night sky is beautiful, but it’s only bright enough to light your walk way a couple nights a month, if that. Outdoor path lighting makes all the difference when you step foot outside after the sun goes down, keeping you safe on your way up the driveway or down to the pool. With our low-voltage outdoor lights you can be certain your night time view won’t be spoiled.

The halogen and LED lights we usually recommend offer brighter, better-controlled illumination than solar path lights, and are more energy efficient and longer-lived than incandescent options. That means that, once we’ve helped you design the perfect outdoor path lighting, you’ll be free to stroll, without worrying about burnt-out light bulbs or cleaning up after the costly, damaging excavation needed to lay lines for incandescent lights.

There is no such thing as basic lighting

Our professional outdoor path lighting designers specialize in just one thing: getting you the safety and accent lighting you need for outdoor paths. This starts with a free consultation to identify your goals and any challenges. We’ll pay particular attention to areas where a few carefully placed lights can illuminate the safest route over uneven footing or through thick greenery.

Got kids? We’ll work with you to light the areas where toys and other objects are most likely to end up in someone’s way. We prevent collisions between unsuspecting ankles and your child’s treasured (but discarded) belongings every day.

Our outdoor path lighting can illuminate the way even if you don’t have a paver or concrete walkway laid down. Use it to brighten the perimeter of your garden beds, or designate a walkway that can be relocated with a minimum of expense and effort. The right path lighting means your pool, patio, hot tub, driveway, and garden sitting area will be open 24 hours a day, all year long.

Call Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Virginia Beach at 757-201-9042 to schedule your free consultation or nighttime demonstration. We look forward to lighting the night with you!

Light The Night with Our Nighttime Demonstration

Every home is unique, that’s why we design your outdoor lighting to match the style of your home to help create a subtle, yet elegant ambiance. At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Virginia Beach, we work with you to create a custom design for your property, highlighting the features you find most important.

The first step in designing your outdoor lighting is to discuss your needs and vision for your property. We’ll ask questions about your property to help understand your lighting requirements.

  • What are your goals for outdoor lighting?
  • Is there any landscape you’d like to highlight?
  • Do you want to illuminate your outdoor living spaces?
  • Are you wanting to improve the safety and security of your property?
  • Do you have a vision of how your outdoor lighting should look?

Once we’ve established the purpose behind your outdoor lighting, we’ll walk the property with you to see where you are envisioning lighting. This could include your outdoor spaces, boat docks or water features. With outdoor lighting you get to enjoy your gardens, patios and docks long into the evening.

After gathering information on your property and your lighting needs we’ll go to the drawing board to create a custom design for your outdoor lighting. The best part about the nighttime demonstration however is bringing the ideas and visions to life. While the sun is starting to set, our technicians work hard to set up your lighting and prepare to illuminate your home. 3, 2, 1 and you have lights!

We use multiple voltage transformers in our low-voltage installations, allowing your lamps to use 50-60% less energy while delivering the perfect amount of illumination.

Whether you’ve just moved into your home or you have lived there for years, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives will light the exterior of your home from your driveway to your front door to help create a welcoming atmosphere for your family and guests.

Lighting your driveway does more than make your home more attractive once the sun goes down, it also adds another layer of safety and security for your family and guests. Getting kids on the bus early in the morning or returning home late at night can help guide you safely in and out of your home.

Along with lighting your driveway, we will illuminate those key landscape features that surround your yard and make your house feel more like a home. Revealing trees, flowers beds and mailboxes with landscape lighting in the night sky can create focal points for attractive curb appeal.

Lighting the pathways leading to your front door will continue the safety and security you’re looking for when designing and installing exterior lighting. To help bring the custom design to life after the sun goes down, we will perform a no-obligation nighttime demonstration at your property.

Call Outdoor Lighting Perspectives at 757-201-9042 if you’re interested in exterior lighting on your Virginia Beach home. We look forward to lighting the night with you!

Tree Lighting Designed with Three Techniques

Every home has its unique focal point. Some have a beautiful brick façade, while others feature large, seamless windows, but for many it’s their landscape and especially their featured trees.

Tree lighting is a key component to outdoor lighting design, by creating depth and concluding the overall design. At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Virginia Beach, we apply three main techniques for tree lighting.

Spotlighting

Spotlighting is one of the most obvious tree lighting techniques but also one of the best. Spotlighting allows you to appreciate a statement tree all day long. Spotlighting a tree can extend your sight line further into your yard.

These fixtures are installed at the base of the tree and are pointed up towards it. Installing the lights at ground level illuminates the tree in its entirety from the trunk to the tree branch.

Moonlighting

Moonlighting is meant to subtly illuminate your tree. The goal behind moonlighting is to mirror the effect of light from the moon. These fixtures are installed high in the tree branches and positioned downward.

Moonlighting is a beautiful technique for cozy outdoor fireplaces and living spaces.

Shadowing

Shadow tree lighting adds depth and texture to your Virginia Beach home. This lighting technique focuses not only on the tree but also the shadowing it creates. The fixtures for this technique are placed in front of the tree and are cast at an angle to place the shadow in a desired direction.

Enhance your Outdoor Living Space with Outdoor Lighting

It has been long winter of cold, rain and even snow for the Virginia Beach area and personally, we can’t wait for the weather to warm up and stay that way! And once it happens, you can find us outdoors.

From reading a good book to entertaining family and friends at a BBQ, spending time outdoors is what we enjoy best about summer. Enhancing your beautiful home with outdoor lighting in your backyard will enrich your outdoor experience in three ways.

  • Increasing time outside; Without outdoor lighting the time spent in your outdoor spaces is cut short. By simply installing lights around your porch, patio, deck or pool can increase the amount of time you get to spend in your space.
  • Providing safety and security; Getting from your deck to your fire pit with a tray of s’more’s in the dark can be tricky and potentially hazardous. By illuminating your pathways, you’ll keep your friends and family safe from any trips or falls.
  • Setting the mood; Whether you are indoors or out lighting has the ability set the perfect mood for any type of situation: romantic, fun, eclectic. We custom design your outdoor lighting to help create the mood of your outdoor living space.

Roll Back the Darkness to Illuminate the Beauty of your Virginia Beach Home

You’ve pulled out all the stops to make your house and yard look top notch so why would you let that hard work disappear into the night? With Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Virginia Beach, you can roll back the darkness and put the beauty of your home on display.

At OLP we custom design lighting for your properties needs, install every fixture with care and continue maintenance on fixtures for years to come. By highlighting your home’s architectural features while drawing in attention to plants and gardens you’ll stun your guests from the second they arrive.

From the front of your home to the backyard, we can help create a safe and secure environment to make guests feel welcome to make their way into your outdoor living spaces without you having to greet them. Landscape lighting creates dimension and depth for your yard by forming focal points for trees, landscape features and gardens.

Our custom lighting doesn’t just have to do with with the design, it also has a lot to do with the type of lights we use on your home. The halogen and LED lights we usually recommend offer brighter, better-controlled illumination than solar path lights, and are more energy efficient and longer-lived than incandescent options. That means that, once we’ve helped you design the perfect outdoor path lighting, you’ll be free to stroll, without worrying about burnt-out light bulbs or cleaning up after the costly, damaging excavation needed to lay lines for incandescent lights.

So as you plan to install outdoor landscape lighting this spring give Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Virginia Beach a call at 757-201-9042 or email us at [email protected] to learn more about our free lighting design consultation. We look forward to lighting your night!

To help your outdoor lighting ideas come to life we schedule a nighttime demonstration with you on your property. We want to get to know your property before we design your lighting which means we’ll set up an appointment to come discuss your lighting needs, focal points and favorite spots on your property. This will help us achieve the outdoor lighting you’ve been dreaming of.

Depending on the areas and amount of lights you choose to use the set up can take anywhere between a half hour and an hour, for larger properties we add on more time. We arrive before sunset to ensure you’ll get the full effect of your outdoor lighting design as the sun goes down and after we’ve set it up and we will be ready to show you the big reveal of your illuminating backyard transformation.
