Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples Specializes in Bringing your Evening Home and Landscape to Life

Most Naples residents will agree that this is their favorite time of year to spend time outdoors. While most of the country is under freeze warnings and shoveling snow off the sidewalks of their homes, we are enjoying highs in the low eighty degree range with plenty of sun and light breezes. January in Naples means mild, comfortable outdoor conditions that make relishing in the great outdoors ripe for the picking. Since many homeowners are spending more evenings outdoors it makes the perfect time of year to add outdoor lighting into the scenario.

Enhancing form and improving function

Landscapes throughout the Naples area resemble a tropical paradise that has stepped right out of the pages of a magazine. The yards of many area homeowners showcase a host of exotic palm trees, many native to the area, alongside tropical perennials such as Hibiscus and Bougainvillea

An Outdoor Lighting Package Perfect for Southwest Florida

If you’ve been on our website lately you may have noticed a new graphic advertising our outdoor lighting package deal.  And, if you’ve been thinking about installing outdoor lighting fixtures on or around your deck, patio, water features, dock or home, this may be a perfect package for you.

The offer includes your choice of 7 halogen up-lights or deck lights.  If you’ve researched outdoor lighting, you probably already know that our fixtures are manufactured to be exceptionally durable and are tested to the highest standards. Our copper and brass deck fixtures weather the elements gracefully and age to a beautiful patina finish.  Our well or up-lights blend in with your landscaping so all you see is the illumination.

In addition to the 7 halogen lights, you also receive a 300-watt transformer, 200 feet of the thickest wire used in the outdoor industry and a digital timer that can be set from dusk to dawn or any variation you choose.  All of these options plus a custom design, professional installation and all taxes are included for just $1499.

The package is a great start to enhancing your outdoor areas.  If you’re not sure which type of lighting fixtures to choose, we can help.  Up-lights, or well lights, are adjustable for brightness and typically used to highlight your home’s exterior or a striking tree.  Deck lights can be used on your deck of course, but are also perfect for securing atop retaining walls or along handrails and bench seating.  They cast a widespread glow that boosts visibility.

You may have heard a lot of buzz about LED lighting lately.  The growing trend is now spreading to outdoor lighting, and we offer outdoor LED fixtures like no other.  Our technologically advanced outdoor LEDs are designed to be up to 85% more efficient than typical halogen systems.  The initial cost of the fixtures is higher but the operating costs quickly make up for that.  The life cycle of the bulbs is also longer with a rated life of 50,000 hours, or 19 years if you have them on for 7 hours a day. We’d be happy to discuss an LED package with you if your interest takes you that route.

What’s even better is that, if after seeing your custom design, you would like to add outdoor lighting to other areas of your home or yard, we can help you with that as well.  It all starts with a call to Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples.  You let us know what you want to light and we’ll take it from there.

Southwest Florida’s Unique Spaces Deserve Great Lighting

The pleasant weather we enjoy in Southwest Florida lets us take advantage of the great outdoors much longer than in other parts of the country.  Entertaining or just relaxing on our decks and patios is more enjoyable with good lighting that allows us to stay outside longer.  But, thinking about other spaces unique to Florida’s Gulf Coast brings to mind additional areas that could benefit from outdoor lighting.

Naples path lighting illuminates the area and increases the safety.

Southwest Florida backyards often lead to a dock or water.  The pathways down to these docks can be illuminated to create ambiance and increase safety.  Our 6” low-voltage path light is a perfect choice for this application.  It’s hand-crafted with a solid copper top and mounting stake that is enhanced over time when the copper oxidizes to a gorgeous patina, blending in with the landscaping.  The built-in impact resistant irrigation shield protects the bulb so it’s not directly exposed to water, humidity and other elements that harm traditional lighting fixtures. The lighting radius of 15 feet is fully adjustable and ensures you and your guests won’t miss a step along the way.

 

Outdoor lighting on your docks is also advantageous.  A great option here is our low-voltage copper

Dock lighting also ensures your safety near the water

wall/deck light.  This fixture can be installed on the railings of the walkways to provide the perfect amount of light for safety and atmosphere.

Our wall/deck light is small but powerful, and casts a wide indirect wash of light on the posts of the docking area. The ‘half-moon’ sconce creates rich ambient light and the copper weathers the elements beautifully.

Our path lights and wall/deck lighting fixtures are available using our traditional halogen bulbs or our energy-efficient LED lighting technology.  We’d be happy to discuss the differences and advantages of the lighting technologies with you.

Using traditional lighting in nontraditional ways is just one example of how Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples can make your outdoor areas safer and more attractive.  Let our professional lighting designers show you ways you never thought of to light up your outdoor living spaces.  Give us a call today and we’ll show you how with a free night time demonstration.
