Outdoor Lighting Design & Installation
Adding string lighting to your outdoor lighting design is the perfect way to add an atmosphere of occasion all year long. Overhead lighting allows for warm lighting to illuminate those times spent with family or friends for special celebrations. Do you have a tree that you want to make a focal point? Wrapping a tree with string lights will liven up any area while adding a unique and modern lighting style providing function and beauty.
Well-designed outdoor lighting can accent those special and unique qualities of your property. String lighting is a fantastic option to consider when designing and planning your lighting project. The two most common types of string lighting are overhead and tree wraps. However, the possibilities that these two lighting options offer are nearly unlimited.

The difference is commercial grade and standard grade. That difference is specifically in the wire and the sockets. The commercial grade light strands we use are made from heavy duty wire and feature weather-proof sockets. In addition to looking more professional, commercial grade string lights are built for permanent installations and intended to be left up year-round.
Standard grade string lights you often find in a store do not last as long especially in locations with inclement weather. You can also plan on replacing them much more frequently if left up year round.
Designing and installing outdoor lighting takes a lot of preparation and planning. Installing string lighting involves more than hanging a few strands and plugging them in. There are considerations like placement, visual appeal, the perfect length without extra wire, and most of all safety. You can tell the difference between a DIY string lighting installation and one that was installed by an experienced professional.
An outdoor lighting expert will have in-depth knowledge of a variety of design and installation techniques. Including how to get the most out of the function of string lights as well as the beauty they can add.
Yes, but there are certain things that must be considered before adding a dimmer switch to your string lighting system. For example the dimmer switch must be able to handle the wattage your system puts out. Our experienced designers and installers can guide you and consult on whether a dimmer switch is possible based on wattage issues and rating of the light strands.
When you hear the term guide wire when talking about outdoor lighting it is usually in reference to overhead string lighting. A guide wire is simply a cable, usually made of stainless steel, that adds support for your string lighting strands. A guide wire is essential especially when doing more complicated designs like a zig-zag over a patio.
