Naples Outdoor Lighting Nighttime Demonstration

Test driving a car has become the standard when it comes to purchasing a vehicle. While home renovation and improvement remains a hard service to preview, here at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples we’ve found a way to make sure you get to see exactly what you’re going to get from us before you commit to anything or spend a cent.

Outdoor Lighting Demonstration

Billy_Scales_Night_Demo_InstallOur complimentary nighttime demonstration allows you to see our outdoor lighting design, custom created just for you. It even allows you to make changes and additions where needed – seeing these changes first hand, on-the-spot. We can tell you how great outdoor lighting is all day but nothing will resonate the way it does when you walk amongst the lights for yourself. Previewing your new Fort Myers landscape lighting is the best way to know what you’re getting.

When you call our office the first time, we’ll set up a convenient time for one of our outdoor lighting experts to meet you at your home or business – wherever you are considering adding outdoor lighting. We’ll have you show us around your property, listening and asking questions to get a true sense of how the space is used and what your goals are for lighting the outdoor space.

Custom Outdoor Lighting Design

After taking a few pictures, scheduling your nighttime demonstration and jotting down some notes, our outdoor lighting designer will come back to the office and create a custom outdoor lighting design for you. We’ll consider each fixture, its effects, its placement and the overall results that will be attained. Our design team will consider the outcome from the practical aspects of achieving goals for the function of the space, while also discovering ways to make the space beautiful, comfortable, warm and inviting.

The art of outdoor lighting is not something we will ever let go for the sake of functionality. Every light can be used to create beautiful artistry with light and shadow, while simultaneously achieving function such as task lighting, safety lighting and security lighting. Bonita Springs outdoor lighting achieves multiple practical goals while achieving night time beauty.

Night Time Demonstration

When we come out to your home or business on demo day, we’ll arrive approximately 30 minutes to an hour before dark (depending on the size of the outdoor lighting design). We show you the design and listen to any additional thoughts you may have come up with since we first met. Then we’ll let you get back to your life while we place our demonstration lights around your property according to the outdoor lighting design we’ve created.

Seeing is Believing

Iconic Florida beauty - enjoyable all night long.

Iconic Florida beauty – enjoyable all night long.

As sunset approaches we will bring you outside and hand you the remote. As the darkness blankets us, you can flip the switch when you’re ready to see your landscape, home, deck, patio or business illuminated with the beauty of our outdoor lighting system for the first time. As you take it all in, we’ll let you notice each fixture and what it is accomplishing. At this point we will collaborate with you and potentially move or add lights, turn some on and others off giving you the ability to test out first-hand what you really want. Collaborative custom outdoor lighting is the best way for each individual to get everything they want from their Estero landscape lighting.

If you like what you see, if you like the final results, we’ll schedule your outdoor lighting installation. If you still want to take time to think about it, we’ll leave without putting any pressure on you whatsoever. In outdoor lighting our goal is to illuminate your life with beauty and function, not to pressure you into buying something you’re not ready to buy. The best part is, our nighttime outdoor lighting demonstration is completely free – you have nothing to lose. Call today!

LED Outdoor Lighting Brightens a Mediterranean Villa nestled between the Imperial River and Harbor Cove

Tucked in the Bonita Bay neighborhood of Bonita Springs, FL sits a gorgeous Mediterranean Villa that was just asking for some outdoor lighting. With gorgeous architectural details, brick paver driveway and a variety of palm trees we couldn’t ask for a better canvas.

Architectural Lighting in Bonita Springs

architectural -outdoor-lighting-show-off-mediterranean-villa-bonita-bay

The front of this Mediterranean beauty does not disappoint. In the day time you’ll notice the prominence of the five Alexander Palm trees that frame the fountain and skim the roof line. Your eye is naturally drawn up to the top of the palms where your attention is immediately grabbed by the beautiful arches over the balcony and then the red tile roof.

tree-lights-uplights-highlight-Alexander-palms-bonita-springs

Our intent with the front of the home was to make the features that are so striking during the day, equally striking after dark. By focusing on the arches, fountain and roof line we were able to not only highlight the details of the Mediterranean style but also show off the height of the Alexander Palms. With tree lighting, the palms now frame the illuminated arches and fountain while creating additional beauty in shadows.

Entrance Lighting in Bonita Springs

southern-live-oaks-hide-gorgeous-entryway-bonita-springs

A beautiful inviting entrance like this should never be under the cover of darkness. The homeowners asked us to illuminate the entryway and stairs so evening visitors could be guided inside safely. With a brick paver driveway and sidewalk leading to the stairs that are tucked in so perfectly under the Live Oak trees, this entry way was dark and treacherous under even the brightest moonlight.

led-outdoor-lights-illuminate-hidden-entrance-bonita-bay

To remedy the dark entryway, we started with some down lighting hidden up in the Southern Live Oak trees. What used to cause the darkness became a perfect source for just the right amount of light. By also adding integrated outdoor LED uplights and path lights we were able to show off the paver walkway, the beautiful stair case, and most importantly lead guests safely to the front door with lighting that appears to be planned solely for aesthetics.

Landscape Lighting in Bonita Springs

brick-paver-driveway-lined-with-palm-trees-bonita-springs

Around the right side of the home, just past the beautiful front entryway lies the brick paver driveway leading to the garage and rear of the property. Surrounded by beautiful landscaping that includes Coconut Palms, Sable Palms and another Southern Live Oak we needed to illuminate this area with subtle ambient light without stealing attention from the front of the home. Bonita Springs landscape lighting will be the key to achieving the results we are after.

driveway-lighting-bonita-springs-FL

We were able to place integrated LED uplights under the Coconut Palms and the Sable Palms to create a distinct yet gentle border around the edges of the driveway. With the addition of a couple of strategically placed integrated LED path lights, the homeowners were provided with enough ambient lighting to navigate into their home at night, without turning on their garage lights.

LED Outdoor Lighting in Bonita Springs

coconut-palm-lights-sable-palm-lights-bonita-springs

This is what 31 Watts can do. Using 1/2 the energy of a single incandescent light bulb.

By using only integrated LED fixtures at this Mediterranean Villa in Bonita Springs, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples was able to illuminate this architectural masterpiece and all of its landscaping with only 98 Watts along the front and 31 Watts around the side and rear. Think about that for a second. A standard incandescent light bulb is 60 Watts. We are illuminating the entire exterior of this home with just slightly more power than two of the light bulbs you may still have in your lamps at home. LED outdoor lighting is a great way to save energy and save costs without compromising light quality.

If you are ready to add exceptional Bonita Springs outdoor lighting to your home, pool, landscaping or focal features, call us for a free consultation.

Light Up Your Naples Home for the 4th of July

Light and shadow make summer fireworks a captivating sight.

Light and shadow make summer fireworks a captivating sight.

Ah the sights and sounds of summer! Good food sizzling on the grill, bright sunlight reflecting off of the ice in your drink, and the kids shrieking as they push one another into the pool. The kids are lucky. For them, summer is one long holiday, but at least we adults get some holiday too. The 4th of July is a mere two and a half weeks away. Hopefully, you are getting ready. Independence Day is characterized by our favorite way to celebrate in America – good food and fireworks. What better way to celebrate than by throwing fire and light into the night sky? With a pop, crackle, and flash, fireworks mesmerize us and leave us with a sense of child-like awe. It’s a good feeling. Now what if you could make those feelings and that air of celebration last? With outdoor lighting, you can.

 

While it won’t flash and flicker (and you really don’t want it to!), outdoor lighting can bathe your property in warm, dramatic light that will capture the attention of those who pass by. Like fireworks, outdoor lighting uses areas of light and shadow to attract notice, cause pause, and elevate mood. Outdoor lighting can bring a celebratory atmosphere to your home this 4th of July and every holiday afterward. Unlike fireworks, outdoor lighting is long lasting. Carefully maintained, outdoor lighting systems can last a lifetime, continuing to elevate the look and feel of your property night after night.

 

Outdoor lighting uses light and shadow to create an atmosphere that captivates like fireworks.

Outdoor lighting uses light and shadow to create an atmosphere that captivates like fireworks.

Your outdoor lighting system can be as big or small as you like. Perhaps you want to start with a certain area – like the front of your home or your lanai or pool area. Like a small fireworks show, a small outdoor lighting system is still beautiful and captivating, and of course, if you want to expand later, that is possible. Whether your neighbors are out for a stroll or you are hosting a summer gathering, your outdoor lighting system will lift the spirits of all those who see it. And in addition to improving the quality of your outdoor time, it can even add resale to your home should you ever choose to sale.

 

Light captivates. Be sure you are taking advantage of this characteristic and get your property celebration ready for the 4th of July and all other holidays after. Call Outdoor Lighting Perspective of Naples. As the area’s premier outdoor lighting provider, we will use light to make your property unforgettable – without unsettling pops and explosions.

Naples Outdoor Lighting – A Gift Dad Can Enjoy for Years to Come

Give Dad a relaxing getaway in his backyard for Father's Day.

Give Dad a relaxing getaway in his backyard for Father’s Day.

It’s June, and Father’s Day is just a little over a week away – June 15th. So what do you have planned to celebrate Dad this year? Maybe you’re thinking of getting him a new set of golf clubs, a power tool, or new grill tools. All of these gifts would probably please him, but how about something a little different? Give Dad the gift of outdoor lighting, and he can enjoy mild, Naples nights relaxing on the patio or deck. Now that temperatures are consistently in the mid to upper-80s, nighttime is the best time to spend outdoors.

 

What are some good areas to light up for Dad? How about the lanai? He can spend evenings in conversation, drink in hand, enjoying mild Naples breezes. Or consider deck lighting. The deck is the perfect spot for an outdoor dinner. You can even give it a trial run on Father’s Day when you and the family go for a visit. Dad works hard in the yard. Be sure all of that hard work is noticed by adding landscape lighting. Even at night, the neighbors will be able to see the lawn, shrubs, and trees he tends week after week. Or you might add pool area lighting. After a hard day’s work, Dad can relax by the pool long after the stars have appeared. He won’t miss out even if he’s working late.

 

Be sure all of Dad's hard work in the yard is noticed with outdoor lighting.

Be sure all of Dad’s hard work in the yard is noticed with outdoor lighting.

For all he does, Dad deserves a little rest and relaxation. Outdoor lighting creates an atmosphere that is soothing and serene. Dad can let all of the cares of the day slip away. Outdoor lighting will elevate his outdoor living spaces and make them functional and safe all at once. Best of all, he won’t even have to maintain it. With design, installation, and the Annual Maintenance Plan from Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples, all Dad has to do is sit back and enjoy. We take care of everything, and if you choose an LED outdoor lighting system, his energy costs will be considerably less than if you choose a traditional halogen system. Of course, none of outdoor lighting’s beauty and elegance is lost by choosing our high quality LED fixtures and components.

 

A tie, cologne, or gift card – yes, you could give any of these gifts, and Dad would appreciate them. But why not give him something he can enjoy all year for years to come? Call Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples. We’ve got Dad’s gift covered this Father’s Day.

Elegance and Elevation: How Outdoor Lighting Enhances Southwest Florida Nights

Outdoor lighting brings aesthetic elevation.

Outdoor lighting brings aesthetic elevation.

It is not the first time I’ve said, “We’re so lucky to live here.” It won’t be the last. There is no denying that Southwest Florida is one of the most beautiful areas in the country. Stunning white beaches, the shining gulf water, and towering palm trees come together creating what most would call paradise. Personally, I count myself lucky not only to live here but also to bring out Naples’ remarkable beauty at night. While outdoor lighting is functional, as it enables use of spaces and keeps them safe after dusk, it also elevates aesthetic aspects of your property, and such elevation can only be accomplished at night. It is this characteristic that makes outdoor lighting so enticing to homeowners in our area.

 

Using several different fixtures and lighting techniques, this pool area becomes an enchanting oasis.

Using several different fixtures and lighting techniques, this pool area becomes an enchanting oasis.

Recently, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples installed a system that encapsulates Southwest Florida beauty after dark. Like many in Naples, the client has an enclosed pool area and spectacular palm trees. The property is also located on the water. This client wanted the pool area illuminated with elegant and dramatic lighting but also wanted to highlight the trees outside of it. By doing so, we were able to craft the illusion of being completely outdoors under these magnificent trees but without the annoying insects.

 

Dramatic uplighting was used on the trees outside the pool area, making them stand out against the darkness behind them. Several small palm trees within the area were also illuminated in this way. The uplighting and their shadows reflect off of the glass roof, adding a striking layer of depth and creating an even denser “forest” look. Other islands of foliage and flowers were lit with overhead lighting and path lights. The end result was enough ambient light to make the area functional and enough shadows to create a captivating mood. Now, our client can lounge around the pool soaking up iconic Florida beauty and the mysterious elegance the new system inspires.

Iconic Florida beauty - enjoyable all night long.

What is most beautiful about your property? A pool area like the one above; a tropical garden of trees, foliage, and flowers; or awe-inspiring architecture? Whatever your best area may be, there is an elegance and wonder that can only be teased out at night under the very best outdoor lighting. If you would like to unlock this beauty in your home and elevate it, call Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples today. You have seen what we can do, and I promise the potential is already there. After all, we live in Naples.

Sound and Light – Bring Out the Best of Your Naples Water Feature

Being able to see your water feature, as well as hear it, enhances its calming effect.

Being able to see your water feature, as well as hear it, enhances its calming effect.

Its sound is comforting, relaxing, and connects us to the natural world. It soothes and washes away cares that are not important, and we cannot live without it. Water – there is something very elemental about this liquid that has such power over us. Whatever the reason, the presence of water makes our lives better. Here in Naples Florida, water is plentiful and touches all of us. Some are lucky enough to live on the gulf and can hear the crash of waves day in and day out. For many who do not, koi ponds, streams, and waterfalls are important features in our backyards. Water features are soothing and bring peace just that much closer. While the sound of water transfixes all who take time to hear it, combining visuals with sound elevates water features so they become mesmerizing. Of course, you can see your water feature during the day, but once the sun goes down, the visual of water is lost – unless you have installed water feature lighting.

Perfectly placed lights augments moving water rather than overpowering it.

Perfectly placed lights augments moving water rather than overpowering it.

 

Lighting water features is an art form. While anyone can put a light beside a waterfall and angle the beams onto it, experience and knowledge is required to place lights so that the feature is best accented and clearly visible. With a misplaced light, the water of your feature could take on a bright white glow that blinds you rather than enchants. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples has the experience you need to create the most beautiful feature. We use a combination of lights to accomplish this. Perfectly angled lights can accent rocks or other structural elements, while underwater lights can be installed within the feature itself, creating a golden glow within the water. We even install lights so that they illuminate the points where a waterfall strikes the pond or stream, enhancing the dramatic effect.

Water comes alive under the golden glow of outdoor lighting.

Water comes alive under the golden glow of outdoor lighting.

 

So now, you sit in the lanai, your favorite drink in hand. You hear the water run. It trickles and splashes creating a symphony of sound. You can see the water dancing. Your outdoor lighting reflects off the rippling water, throwing light beams in all directions, and a golden glow shines from the depths of the water. Now, your water feature boast looks to match its stunning voice.

 

If you are ready to create such an experience for those relaxing around your water feature, contact Outdoor Lighting Perspective of Naples today. Not only will the sound of water transfix you, but its movement will as well.

Creating Unique Outdoor Lighting Solutions for Unique Properties

In the world of outdoor lighting, one plus one does not always equal two. This may sound a little far fetched and like a worn out expression, but in truth, the solution to a client’s lighting needs may not be a typical formula. Occasionally, here at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples, we encounter lighting needs that require a little extra attention and creativity, and we love the challenge. This is not to say that there is no art in more typical outdoor lighting designs and

Outdoor dining is much more enjoyable with a nicely lit table

installs. Each property we light is treated with the utmost care and attention so we can be certain our clients get what they want and need. But unique situations give us a chance to try our skills and push what many believe are the limitations of outdoor lighting. The opportunity to come up with a truly unique solution is something we value.

 

We’ve recently had the opportunity to do several projects inside lanais here in Southwest Florida.  While some might questing if this is truly outdoor lighting, the screens of the structures do make them more like a porch than an actual room. Since the lighting is subjected to the elements of our

Florida environment, outdoor lighting is needed in situations like this.  During a recent project, we created a chandelier using our outdoor lighting fixtures. We hung this chandelier inside the structure and suspended it over a seating area so that the entire area was washed with an elegant light. This lighting was installed on its own switch in order to give our client more control over the lanai without affecting the other landscape lights. And in order to keep our client from having to deal with the climb involved with changing bulbs every 5,000 hours, we used our long-lasting LED fixtures.

 

Outdoor lighting can light up your grill area and be turned off when the cooking is done

We did a similar project for another client above a grill. Again, we added an additional switch so that the client had more control and could simply turn off the light once the food was prepared. The wiring for a solution such as this is easily attached to the structure, making the process of concealing it much easier.

 

These are just a couple examples of unique lighting solutions that we have developed for our clients’ unique needs. With the expertise of Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples and just a little creativity, we can develop a unique, elegant lighting design that will not only meet your needs but will also turn the heads of your neighbors and guests. If you have an area you hope to light but are doubtful a beautiful remedy can be created, do not hesitate to call us. Not only are we able to make what you need, we are excited to do so.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples Royal Palm Trees

Imagine your own backyard softly illuminated with outdoor lighting.

It’s time. You’ve had your nose to the grindstone for far too long and you deserve a rest. Vacationing is on your mind, but before you browse through those flashy pamphlets, take a moment and think.

Copper path lights softly illuminate the way from your backdoor into your yard on a warm summer’s night. Their light is subtle yet strong, providing safety and structure. They guide you easily to the pool area where several fixtures have been set. They light around the water making it look memorizing and could rival the look of any commercial pool around the world. The glow is bright enough to lightly bathe the entire area surrounding it without overpowering. The scene is completely soothing. But your home won’t let your pool area take the entire spotlight. Against its exterior, floodlights wash the home walls and bring out the stunning texture. Shadows create striking contrast that keep your eyes entertained for hours. If you can pull your eyes away from them for a moment, the trees in your yard are begging for your attention.  Well lights beam

Enjoy your Naples garden against the Florida night sky with our enchanting garden lighting designs

As spring quickly approaches our thoughts turn to greener lawns, spending more time outdoors and especially in the garden. Spring is the season of renewal. As homeowner’s we anticipate the arrival of colorful bulbs, blooming perennials and trees to mark the beginning of the outdoor season. As the days progressively become longer and warmer we spend countless hours within our landscapes adding color to our yards.  Private gardens such as water gardens and flower gardens are a favorite among Naples residents. Our extended warm weather allows cultivation of flowers and plants that are unique and exciting. Hibiscus, Bougainvillea and other tropical additions are enjoyed year round here in Naples, where in other climates they are only seasonal favorites. With all the excitement surrounding buds and blooms the addition of garden lighting can bring your spring gardening to a new level of enjoyment.

Benefits of garden lighting in your flower garden

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples garden lighting

Watch the magic of your garden unfold under the night sky with outdoor garden lighting.

One of the biggest benefits of adding garden lighting within your flower garden is the way it enables you to use your garden at night. Most avid gardeners are already aware of the impact outdoor lighting can make within a flower garden. Being able to watch as the magic unfolds as plants and flowers explode with color against the night sky is truly mesmerizing. Some flowers are strictly night blooming, such as the fragrant Brugmansia, also known as an “Angel’s Trumpet”. These plants close their colossal trumpet-like blooms during the day. In the evening the Brugmansia opens fully and exudes an aroma that is sweet and unforgettable. Your garden will take on a whole new look and feel with the addition of garden lighting; colors like purple and blue appear more vivid than during the day. The act of simply walking through a well-lit garden in the evening can lift your spirits and heighten relaxation.

Benefits of lighting your water garden

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples water garden lighting

Lighting a water garden makes a beautiful focal point at night.

Water gardens add a feast for the senses within the landscape. Koi ponds, waterfalls and dry streams enchant you with the sound of trickling and circulating water. In almost all water gardens the area at the base or surrounding the structure itself is accented by flowers, low growing shrubs and ornamental grasses. The water feature paired with the water garden which surrounds it supplies double the pleasure and enjoyment. Take these two elements, and add water garden lighting into the mix. The results from adding outdoor lighting to your water feature and water garden include seeing the light dance off the movement of the water. Adding lighting will also enhance the beauty of all planting materials used in your water garden design. Colors are brighter and greens appear greener with outdoor lighting. If your water garden is not in close proximity to an outdoor space such as a deck or patio, add an elegant bench nearby so that you may get the full enjoyment of this winning combination – your water feature +  a surround of plants and flowers + water garden lighting = unforgettable!

Whether you enjoy gardening as a hobby, or consider yourself an avid gardener, beautiful landscaping and gardens are a great way to add beauty and curb appeal to your home. If you are looking for a way to make the fruits of your labor more beneficial this spring, consider outdoor lighting.
