Project Notes

Scope

The homeowners in Delafield inherited an outdated and inefficient halogen outdoor lighting system. They were looking to update the entire system to state-of-the-art LED products and move to a modern, contemporary fixture style to properly compliment the property. It was also important to find a unique way to bring light to the back deck and highlight some of the garden art they had brought over from their previous residence. The long, winding driveway had existing lighting as well that needed to be updated.

Solution

  • Replacement of poor-quality aluminum path lights of a style unfitting to the property with a simpler, more elegant fixture made of copper and brass. Some path light locations had to be in existing hedges, so an offset path light top made it easier to get the light out towards the front entrance walkway.
  • To light the deck, micro well-lights were core drilled into the decking just below the ornate fencing along the perimeter. This serves to highlight the beautiful metalwork and cast ambient light onto the deck
  • Downlights and in-ground up lights were used to highlight the garden art. These methods maintain a minimum visual footprint so that the fixtures themselves do not distract from the art both during the day and at night.
  • The driveway downlights that were removed had been located much too low on the trees, minimizing their impact and creating a glaring problem for cars at night. They were also installed incorrectly and posed damage to the health of the trees. The new lights have installed an average of 10 feet higher up, incorporated Hex Cell Louvers and adjustable shrouds to cut glare, and utilized a 3900K color temperature to mimic moonlight. Correct tree mounting methods were used, including stainless steel hardware and offsetting of mounts to account for tree growth and health.

Notes

All fixtures on the project, like all Night Owl projects, incorporated high efficiency, long-life LED light sources certified by the FCC and Underwriter Laboratories as approved for use in enclosed outdoor fixtures. The original halogen system required 5 transformers; we were able to reduce that number to 3 while increasing the total amount of lighting fixtures.

Renovation

Replaced all elements of an old system with a new, modern, long-lasting system.

Minimize Footprint

Creative placement of lights to avoid distracting focus statuary art during the day and night.

Driveway Moonlighting

Corrected a long driveway moonlighting system for safer passage to and from the home.

Efficient System

The old 5-transformer system was reduced to 3. Included more high-efficiency, long-life LED lights.

Excellent Communication

He was quick to respond to my request to meet and was excellent with communication throughout the entire project. We met once at our home to review what we had and he returned with his plans. We wanted the existing lighting replaced with attractive and efficient fixtures.

He really listened to what we had in mind, but also added a few really neat ideas. We have some outdoor art sculptures that he suggested lighting along with some attractive subtle deck lighting. The price was reasonable.

He returned in the evening to inspect and readjust the lighting after installation. We highly recommend working with Woody. We are so pleased with our outdoor lighting! He is a hard-working, honest, and trustworthy business owner.
