Moonlighting Travels For An Atlanta Landscape Lighting Installation

Just last week ahead of the Fourth of July, Moonlighting hit the road, bound for the Peach State to install our latest custom landscape lighting design.

Our latest project lands us in Atlanta, Georgia. The landscape and property itself offered many great opportunities for illumination as both the front and backyard had elements of both entertainment space and focal points within the landscape.

The backyard especially is used for entertaining as the elaborate deck structure required a need for circulation lighting to help make the space easier and safer to navigate in the evening. While enjoying a nice cocktail from the beautiful deck, we knew that adding a secondary layer of landscape lighting by highlighting some of the key trees and creating some enjoyable scenes was an absolute must.

It wasn’t all work while we were there… Since we were able to wrap up a little early before the final night aiming, we took to the links for a friendly round of golf and go-carts… well mini golf. Ricky was crowned the champion of the round!

The best part of this project is we were able to have everything completed in time for the Fourth of July holiday and ready to enjoy!

Do you have a project outside of Charleston? We can help! Traveling out of state for projects is not something we are strangers to. In the last two years alone, we have traveled for landscape lighting designs and installations in California, Texas, Florida and Georgia. You never know where you might find us next!

A Modern Solution For Outdated Post Lights

Have your post lights shown signs of degradation? Is the paint flaking off and the lamps going dim? Is it leaning or wobbling? It may be time to explore some other options.

In this blog post we’ll dive into a recent project where we helped provide a solution for two outdated post lights. For this particular project we wanted  modernize the lighting while still maintaining a classic look.

Located in the historic district of Charleston, we were recently tasked with replacing two existing post lights that were inefficient on multiple levels. The ten-plus year old lights were constructed of  aluminum, highly corroded and they were 120V with incandescent bulbs.

Before

The new custom post lights that we were proposing would begin with fabrication in our shop. We chamfered the posts at the tops and the bottoms to provide a more decorative look. After they were chamfered, we painted them “Charleston Green,” a very popular color within the lowcountry and the greater Charleston area.

Fabrication

The copper fixture heads that we specified are handmade and the highest of quality that come all the way from The Copper House, located in New Hampshire. The selection of a copper fixture head ensures that these post lights are built for a long term solution and can withstand the corrosive conditions presented in Charleston. As part of a separate scope of work within this property, we brought low voltage wiring into the location of the post lights with the intent of converting them from line voltage to low voltage and LED, allowing for a more efficient and energy conserving solution.
