Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte had the recent pleasure of teaming up with the Solow Design Group on a terrific landscape project in the Elizabeth Neighborhood of Charlotte, NC, which was recently profiled in North Carolina Design. We love to work with companies like Solow because much like us, they are eager to delight and enthrall their clients by providing top-notch customer service wrapped around expert design and installation. We are simpatico in that we listen very carefully to what the homeowner wants and we execute on their dreams so that all their wants are met and their expectations are exceeded.

After Ric Solow’s team  worked their magic by entirely revamping the landscaping and hardscapes on the property, we moved in to add the final glitter and evening sparkle to their work. We worked hand-in-hand with them from the beginning of the project so we knew ahead of time where wires, fixtures and other facets would be based on their selection of trees, shrubs and other decorative features. If you are planning an update of your landscape on a small or large-scale, make sure to include your lighting architect into the plans early on as it can be a big cost saver and minimize disruption not having to dig up the property after the yard has been completed.

Elizabeth Outdoor LightingWith Solow’s spectacular stonework and fauna in place, we were challenged to bring in fixtures that would wash the property in luxurious lighting that was complimentary to the hardscape. Pathways were beautifully lit with natural appeal that is both sculptural and artistic, but also provides plenty of practical visibility in a very elegant way. The architectural elements pop in a stylish and graceful manner without appearing intentional, but rather seem to be bathed in soft moonlight. Of course, it takes a lot of design skill to use fool-the-eye effects and techniques that create subtleties in illumination. Whether to up light or down light is both an art and a science that our lighting designers have mastered through their education and hands-on expertise at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte, and it’s exactly why landscape and home architects call us to partner with them. They know we are going to cast their work in the very best light to wow the customer.

Ken is passionate about the transformative effect of outdoor lighting. “It’s the difference between a cold, dark building and a warm, inviting respite from the outside world,” he reflects. “Our clients have told us how much they enjoy pulling up in their driveway after a long day and seeing the lights of home. They’ve also said that a lighted landscape is the kind of thing you didn’t think you needed, but once you have it, you wonder how you ever lived without it.”

Elizabeth Outdoor LightingWe look to light up the evening in a very subtle way that beckons the eye to wander around the space. There is nothing harsh or fixtures that are lined up predictable ways as if you are on an airplane runway. We go for the unpredictable and exciting in a warm and inviting way that makes you wonder what is around the corner.  We aim for restrained, ethereal and elegant so that the home and property are washed in a soft glow and to complement the materials and design plan the landscape architects put in place.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte looks forward to working with Solow Design and other landscape designers in the future. Contact us today to learn more at (704) 849-8808 or via email at charlotte.outdoorlights.com.

The vintage charm of this Elizabeth area home and its landscaping is preserved and enhanced through the collaborative efforts of Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte and Solow Design Group

Elizabeth Outdoor LightingOur latest project, located in the Elizabeth area of Charlotte entailed the illumination of the custom landscape design created by Solow Design Group. As always, it is a pleasure to work with a firm with such an incredible reputation in the exterior design industry. To fully complement the renovated landscape of this vintage 1930’s home, we custom designed and installed an outdoor lighting system that transformed the entire perimeter of the property.

In the early 1900s homes typically maintained simple landscape designs consisting of foundation plantings, clipped boxwood and hedge-lined walkways from the street to the front door. It wasn’t until the 1930s that Thomas Church began a movement in residential landscaping that created outdoor spaces as extensions of indoor living spaces, called garden rooms. Following his garden style, hardscapes were brought to the home landscape, with the addition of patios off of back doors and liberal use of plants in natural forms to soften the overall effect.

Elizabeth Outdoor LightingOutdoor rooms extend the home living area. It’s evident in these amazing photos, that Solow Design Group successfully created a garden room complete with sitting areas and walkways that preserve the vintage charm of this property. This in turn provided us with the perfect “canvas” upon which we rendered a complete lighting system to enhance and extend the homeowner’s enjoyment of their newly designed landscape area well into the hours after the sun goes down.

The entire perimeter of this beautiful property has been transformed. Low-growing shrubs and raised beds of perennials around the outside edges of the outdoor patio provide natural beauty and stabilize the patio and walkway flagstones. Notice the curves that were incorporated into the hardscape design which soften the effect and add visual interest throughout the landscape design.

Elizabeth Outdoor Lighting

Amongst the natural areas of foliage and rock created by Solow Design Group, we had a mix of new fixtures and design additions of high quality LED. In addition we converted the homeowner’s existing line voltage to super-efficient LED and converted many of the handmade specialty fixtures the homeowner had picked out for her design, which are quite whimsical and converted those to LED as well for continuity of the lighting design.

Elizabeth Outdoor LightingThe benefits of converting an existing system to LED lighting include:

  • a more clean, natural and beautiful illumination
  • an electric bill which will cost substantially less each month
  • longer bulb life with less frequent replacement
  • less of a carbon footprint on the environment
  • UV free bulbs which are less prone to attracting insects and they are more durable and resilient than ordinary lighting systems

No matter the architectural style of your home or whether you need a single bulb area illuminated or you are looking for a comprehensive lighting system for all of your home and surrounding property, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte is your first choice. A custom created outdoor lighting design can be an integral part of your outdoor living space and landscape…adding just the right touch to your property. Extend your outdoor living to the hours after the sun goes down, whether it is for entertaining or just relaxing in the evening with loved ones.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte Discusses Illuminating the Majestic Tree

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte tree uplightingSpring is closer than you think…only 44 days away! With the arrival of spring comes an explosion of budding trees throughout the Charlotte area. As a universally powerful and majestic symbol, the tree is used to represent so many facets of life, literally and figuratively. In literature trees symbolize a multitude of things ranging from happiness and health to beauty and abundance, while in mythology the “tree of life” represents fertility and immortality. Most importantly, trees are a physical expression of life, growth and vigor reminding us that without trees human life would be unsustainable.

Majestic Charlotte trees illuminated at nightAs a homeowner, trees in your home’s landscape provide a plethora of benefits, such as: shade, windbreaks, and erosion reduction as well as adding visual contrast to your landscaping through color, height and texture diversity.Trees such as the crepe myrtle, oaks or Japanese maples make perfect candidates for the addition of outdoor lighting.

A recent survey conducted by the National Association of Home Buyers (NAHB) shows that outdoor lighting consistently tops the list of most wanted outdoor features. Along with outdoor lighting as a whole, many forms of tree lighting will create depth and texture within your landscape or garden. Professional tree lighting should inspire the onlooker through the effect not the fixture.

Uplighting can create dramatic shadows using the trees’ branches.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte is well versed in this art and we work with the homeowner, to select trees with natural grace with canopies and branching full of character.Trees with too many limbs or limbs that are bushy and close together are not recommended for this application. Up lighting works best to compliment the tree’s height and width, while down lighting or moon lighting plays the light off upper branches to produce a dazzling effect.

During each of our installations, our experienced crews take extra care to not harm the tree in any way, as such damage can pave the way for insects and diseases to move in and cause further damage. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte also makes safety a high priority by making certain all cords and wiring are out of sight, eliminating the dangers involved with loose cords or exposed areas running atop the ground which can become a safety hazard.

Now is the time to consider outdoor lighting to enliven your anticipated spring landscaping endeavors!

Outdoor lighting beautifies every season within the landscape!

There is no denying that winter has finally arrived here in the Charlotte area. Late January and early February are most often the time when we experience our coldest temperatures. Daydreaming of warmer days and nights ahead help to ease winter’s chill. With this in mind, many homeowners are beginning to plan for upcoming landscaping projects and additions. Landscape lighting, accent lighting and garden lighting is a magical way to enhance your outdoor spaces and add beauty to the landscape — and the best part is, outdoor lighting can be added anytime, in any season!

It is a common misconception that many residents think of spring as the ideal season for planting, when in truth, many trees and shrub specimens respond better when planting during the cooler months because it reduces stress on new plantings and makes them more likely to establish successfully in order to thrive in the future. Here in the Southeast, cooler temperatures and lowered humidity make fall and winter the best times to move ahead with many landscaping projects. This includes the addition of outdoor lighting to the landscape!

Take a look at these Charlotte landscapes before and after the addition of outdoor lighting and see why lighting adds the finishing touches to your new or existing landscape:

  • Benefits of the well-lit landscape: 

There are four (4) main benefits to adding landscape lighting to your property. These are beauty, curb appeal, safety and security. While the aesthetic benefits of landscape lighting are an inevitable plus, the added benefit of making your home safer and more secure is a driving force for installing landscape lighting for many Charlotte area homeowners.

Outdoor lighting ensures the safety of your steps through you Charlotte gardenA picture is worth a thousand words when it comes to describing the beauty benefits of landscape lighting. Trees, shrubs and flowers come to life under the spell of lighting! Your lawn will appear more lush, your blooms will appear more colorful and vivid, and your landscape will have depth and dimension! 

Landscape lighting also aids in a more secure home because the veil of darkness is lifted making your home less tantalizing to would-be criminals. Burglars typically decide which homes would make good candidates from the vantage point of the street looking for accessible homes that allow easy entry and exit. Criminals are more likely to target a home that cannot be observed by neighbors or a passersby. If your home and landscape is well-lit, criminals are more likely to pass it by, since an attempted break-in on your property would require them to step into the light, leaving them vulnerable and exposed. No more dark hedges or shrubs under windows!

Charlotte trees light at night with outdoor lightingFrom a safety perspective, the addition of landscape lighting improves safety for you, your family and the guests who frequent your property at night. Whether it is a quick trip to the pool house to grab laundry, an evening game of corn-hole or horse shoes by the deck or dinner on the patio, landscape lighting will ensure the areas you frequent in the evening are visible and safe for eased travel and enjoyment.

Charlotte outdoor lightingIt is also no secret that homes with professional outdoor lighting installations generally appraise for more than those which do not. This is a testament to the power of curb appeal. Not only does your home “show” better at night for potential buyers and to spark interest, today’s home buyer is savvy and recognizes the many benefits of outdoor lighting in comparison to other homes in their price range.

Change is good, as is evident through our LED outdoor lighting conversions:

Beam spreads on this Charlotte home accentuate the homes facade

A New Year is a time for changes; positive changes to your lifestyle, health and even areas inside and outside your home. Change is good, especially when the benefits of making that change are in your favor. Such is the case when it comes to your outdoor lighting.

Small spaces in your Charlotte backyard can be brought to life with patio lighting from Outdoor Lighting PerspectivesHave you ever looked at your outdoor lighting system and thought “I really wish I would’ve chosen an LED system instead?” This is certainly the case with many Charlotte area homeowners who did not get on the boat with LED when they initially had their existing lighting installed, and those whose existing systems were installed during the period when LED outdoor lighting was not as within reach.

path lighting invites guests in to this Charlotte homeThe winds of change may have you thinking the time is right to consider LED, and the good news is even if you are currently utilizing a halogen system all is not lost. Converting your existing outdoor lighting system to LED is many times a viable option which also means you can enjoy the many benefits of LED without having to start anew. If your existing system is 12 years old or newer, chances are your system could be a candidate for LED conversion!

After learning this news you are probably asking where do I start? First, your system will have to be inspected to see if LED conversion is possible. Most traditional outdoor lighting systems such as halogen and incandescent can easily be converted to LED. One of our outdoor lighting professionals can inspect your existing system and determine if your system qualifies. Once your existing system is deemed fit to undergo the conversion, you can start enjoying the many benefits of LED outdoor lighting.

Benefits of LED outdoor lighting

  • LED outdoor lighting systems consume nearly 90% less energy than traditional outdoor lighting systems. These savings will make you smile each time you pay your electrical bill.
  • LED outdoor lighting systems have extended longevity with longer bulb life that needs replacement less often. For example a typical halogen bulb will burn for approximately 2,000 to 4,000 hours, whereas an LED will last a whopping 50,000+ operating hours — Wow.
  • LED is a “greener” technology because it leaves less of a carbon footprint on the environment.  LED’s are responsible for less greenhouse gases by reduced carbon dioxide emissions. LED’s also contain no harmful chemical such as mercury that makes handling and disposal dangerous.
  • LED Outdoor Light bulbs

    LED bulbs last much longer and are more energy-efficient

    LED’s are UV free which means no ultraviolet rays which are prone to attract insects.This means using LED in your landscape, deck and patio lighting installation is a plus because it will not attract insects that can invade your outdoor living enjoyment.

  • LED’s are more durable and resilient than ordinary lighting systems — shock resistant, and also react better to changes in temperature, weather conditions and repeated cycling. LED’s will better withstand the demands needed by a bulb placed in outdoor situations.
