Time can render some lighting fixtures obsolete. At Auroralight, our goal as an experienced landscape light manufacturer is to produce timeless fixtures that are supported by modern innovations. Our designs are not only aesthetically modern and dynamic but also modular, which makes it easy to maintain our products for years to come. These are precisely the characteristics that made our products the optimal solution for a large-scale project for a home that sits on two lots in a gated community.
Renewal with Modern Outdoor Landscape Lighting
The project seemed simple enough. The homeowner was in desperate need of a landscape lighting upgrade after their multitude of trees had matured and tripled in size. Originally, each tree had only one dedicated fixture. That left the property mostly in darkness. The project was given to McKay Landscape Lighting, and the project designer, Andrew Coleman (AJ) quickly ascertained that the best solution would be a full upgrade that included at least two fixtures per tree as well as a transition to LED lamps.
Auroralight became a clear answer for all the problems presented by this project. Many of our fixtures are compatible with LED lamps, and our product lines include a wide variety of lighting solutions conducive to all kinds of spaces and landscapes. This particular project included spotlights, path and area lighting, and directional lighting to achieve the proper effect. Another key component of this project was the need to light modern sculptures throughout the property, which was again easily handled by our robust product line.
Ultimately, the designer chose to use our flexible spotlights for two applications. First, they were used to emphasize the roofline of the home so that the architecture was clearly visible. As AJ explains, “The main goal was to highlight the beauty of the home and provide added security at the same time.” Second, the same spotlights were used to illuminate the modern sculptures and play up their unique angles and create interesting shadows.
For the trees, AJ chose our original and ever-popular SLX16 Mariner. This accent light offers many potential applications, and our Storm Drain™ lens drainage system makes it an ideal choice for use around trees that see a lot of rainfall, dirt, and debris. Finally, the design was finished with our exceptional path lighting that is ideal for use in discreet applications like garden beds and other areas to help illuminate without distracting from the beauty of the landscape itself.
Of course, the entire project benefitted from the use of LED lamps. They offer a plethora of advantages, including a more sustainable lighting solution, a longer lifespan, improved energy efficiency, and no heat or UV emissions.
