Outdoor Lighting In Wedgewood Neighborhood, Greensboro NC, 27403
PROJECT SUMMARY: This project began only as a front elevation lighting design and quickly moved into a much larger lighting design after these clients got a taste of what landscape lighting could be. Several night time visits with these clients helped provide perspective and confidence in Southern Lights lighting design capabilities. This installation was performed in two parts, about 6 months apart. First came the front yard which included the front elevation landscape lighting which accented this Frank Llloyd Wright inspired home. Also during the first phase, the front walkway was illuminated using tree lights creating a true “moonlight” effect along with uplighting many of the beautiful trees in this frontyard.
Phase II, brought Southern Lights to the backyard. Backyards are always fun to work with and this home didn’t disappoint. Pool, patio, landscaping, walkways, and architecture. A landscape lighting designers dream…lots of opportunities to create a one-of-a-kind lighting design. Elevation changes close to the pool made for a real safety hazard, so a proper fixture was needed to provide enough light in the area without blinding guests hanging out in the pool. Southern Lights was able to located and install the perfect solution and the perfect fixture for the area.
During the design phase, Southern Lights provided the road map and detailed lighting designs for this client capturing this beautiful setting at night creating the most ideal landscape lighting scenes.
LIGHTING FOCUS: Everything on this project was a focus. There were so many areas of interest, the focus became creating a well balanced lighting design giving the clients and their guests a jaw dropping experience. Each time someone walked through the landscape, a new highlight was visible which really gave this lighting design and installation project very gratifying experience. 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), Serenity played the largest role in this lighting designs focus.

LIGHTING DESIGN: Ideal landscape lighting should evoke Safety. Security. SERENITY and should always start with a design. This unique style and colored home provided the backdrop for this beautiful and natural setting. This design during both phases I and II started smaller than the project ended up being.
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 of this property.
Realizing early on that this property and landscape really needed the full attention of an expert landscape lighting designer allowed Southern Lights the ability to be creative and unleashed from having to work within an budget.
HURDLES TO OVERCOME: Designing an ideal landscape lighting system takes planning. Getting light to the right place in the front and backyard took some skill and time to coordinate installing wire to the desired fixture location.
Existing paver patios, walkways, and an extensive mature landscape had its challenges. Working around roots and hardscapes can create be difficult without experience in these fields. Southern Lights has over 23 years of working in and around landscape and hardscape environments, so although these areas take a little more time to work in, our experienced crews know how to work in and around these difficult obstacles.
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!
