Professional outdoor lighting was desired to help enhance this properties appearance and make the curb appeal “pop” after hours when the sun goes down.
Simple architectural lighting across the front of the home and path lighting along the walkway to the back door were were the main sources of interest on this project along with a few specimen trees.
During the design phase, Southern Lights provides the road map and detailed lighting designs for our clients, capturing beautiful settings at night, creating the most ideal landscape lighting effects.
LANDSCAPE LIGHTING FOCUS: Front of the home and Backyard were the main landscape lighting focuses of this New Irving Park’s residence in Greensboro, NC.
Being on the corner of their street, these homeowners needed to give access to its guests both at the front door as well as the side and backyard entrances. Providing enough light along the walkways was important to help lead family and friends into the backyard without feeling a lack of safety. Once inside the gates, up lighting of the beautiful screened in porch and Cherry Trees helped provide further light guiding you towards the back door. The structure of the screened porch also became a focal feature providing the backdrop and some reflective lighting in the backyard.
Important to the homeowners, was the need for security lighting due to their work schedule and their dark backyard. Access to the backyard is needed consistently in the early mornings and late evenings. Southern Lights combined some lighting techniques to keep the lighting balance in check and consistent with the rest of the outdoor landscape lighting effects.
When talking with our clients, Southern Lights always tries to listen for what’s most important from our client’s perspective. In this case and in our company motto of (Safety. Security. SERENITY), All three of these focuses played an equal role in these lighting designs.
- Safety lighting was needed to address the elevation changes throughout the property and along the long winding driveway.
- Security lighting was needed to help illuminate a very dark back and side yard and keep intruders out.
- SERENITY lighting is always needed to give the space and property a clean and natural design during evening hours. Tying the function with the beauty is always our goal.

LANDSCAPE LIGHTING DESIGN: Ideal landscape lighting should evoke Safety. Security. SERENITY and should always start with a design. The front walkway again was a main focus for these clients.
This outdoor lighting system is built to last and to add on to. Creating a lighting design, that is scaleable is important to Southern Lights. This property is ready for additional lights that may be desired in the future without having to re-wire and re-do any of the landscape lighting. Southern Lights has the opportunity to work with a lot of amazing clients and this couple was no different. Their love for their home shined through in their appreciation for the beautifully illuminated landscape lighting on this property.
Adding outdoor landscape lighting and giving our client remote access through a smartphone made all the difference for their security lighting.
These clients realized early on that this property and landscape really needed the full attention of an expert landscape lighting designer. Allowing Southern Lights the ability to be creative with the lighting design and to have some freedom of fixture selection and location, proved to be a great decision.

HURDLES TO OVERCOME: Designing an ideal landscape lighting system takes planning. Getting light to the right place takes some skill and time to coordinate installing wire to the desired fixture location.
Although this lighting design and installation was fairly straight forward, this property has some existing plantings that mature, including the vine trained to grow up and over windows off of the garage. Keeping the plant material properly pruned will be an ongoing maintenance need for these clients to keep the lighting design in tact for years to come and to reduce unnatural shadows on the architecture. This client ultimately trusted Southern Lights with the lighting designs allowing us to provide them with the most ideal landscape lighting effect with the best lighting fixtures for the space and structures. We think it turned out pretty awesome!
