Initial Design Meeting

The first phase is to come up with an initial design. We will meet with you at your project location. We will listen to our ideas, propose some new ideas and come up with a preliminary plan. We will take some picture of the areas involved in the design. We will ask you to think about how you use your property and the type of effects you prefer. We will talk about the various control options for your lighting system. None of these decisions have to be final. We will also discuss budgetary considerations. We will prepare a list of all the equipment and amenities we recommend with a cost to supply and complete the install. The purpose of this meeting is to determine if we mutually agree that there is a reason for us to continue and work together on the project. There is no pressure to commit but with that being said 90% of clients who hire us sign up and reserve a space in our construction schedule at this meeting. In order to proceed to step two, an agreement is signed and a deposit rendered.

Lighting Layout

We will schedule an evening on site to take pictures of the individual lighting opportunities on the property. In most instances, we will return the following day to review the lighting options and finalize the design and proposal. This allows us to show you exactly how various combinations of light will look, and enables you to customize the lighting design.  We have found that these pictures give clients a much better idea of the completed design than a written sketch or plan. Landscape Lighting is highly subjective as to brightness levels, desirability of effects etc. What is spectacular to one customer may not be acceptable to another.

Final design decisions cannot be made until the client has actually seen the lighting on their property at night. This guarantees that our clients are 100% satisfied with the end result.

System Turned On

System is turned on. Each fixture and LED is inspected to verify it is on and operating properly. Voltage tests are then made at test points in the system. Adjustments are made at the transformers until all test points are adjusted for proper voltage levels. This will ensure long lamp life of the LED’s.
