Our LED’s Offer Warm Natural Color with Lots of Benefits to the Environment and Your Wallet!

When LED’s first emerged onto the landscaping lighting market years ago, you might remember the “hue of blue” they cast, which was quite harsh and unnatural looking. It lacked the warmth that incandescent and halogen bulbs sported and many customers were not impressed despite the energy-efficiency they heralded. Today, LED’s are dramatically different and can sport a cool or a warm tone depending on your preference.

Our LED's come in warm and cool hues, the choice is all yours!

Our LED’s come in warm and cool hues, the choice is all yours!

Our LED’s are not the same as those cheap ones from big box stores, and we have worked hard in the last decade to improve the quality and color of our LED’s to be far more natural than ever before. We use the Kelvin scale to measure how “warm” or “cool” light looks to the eye in regard to color temperature, and this helps us figure out exactly what our customers want. We can also match the hue of your LED landscape lighting to match those found within your home, or in rhythm with any pre-existing outdoor lighting you wish to retain. At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Delaware Valley, we keep it simple by letting you decide which hue of white you prefer: warm, natural, or cool. Warm white tends to have a cozier vibe, and cool white highlights objects in the night to make them stand out and define them with great detail. Natural white falls somewhere in the middle of the two, and provides a middle ground.

Backyard-pergola-lightingIf you are still using an old school halogen landscape lighting system, we can either give you a whole new LED system so you can take advantage of all the benefits it offers, or we can even convert your existing fixtures to LED if you are on a tight budget and are happy with what you’ve currently got.  Believe it or not, in the next decade nearly 75% of households will be using LED lighting indoors and out!

Take advantage of Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Delaware Valley’s high quality LED lighting fixtures that feature all metal construction and the highest grade wiring available on the market today. We’ve got many styles to choose from that will fit whatever design you are after—traditional, contemporary or modern.  Here are some great facts you can’t ignore when it comes to LED’s versus halogen technology:LED versus Halogen infographic

  • LED’s are longer lasting! You get 40-50,000 hours out of an LED versus only 3,000-4,000 for halogens. They last 10 times longer overall!
  • You can use a smaller transformer and a lot less wire when you choose to go LED
  • A 6-Watt LED gives you the output capacity  equivalent to a 35-watt halogen. Imagine the cost savings each month! This means that an average sized LED system running 365 per year costs a lot less to run when compared to a halogen one. You get about an 80% energy savings! It truly is a no-brainer to switch to LED technology.

Forget about those frequently burned out halogen bulbs that have to be replaced annually! No more fighting through your foliage to insert tiny bulbs into every fixture with hard to remove lens covers! Since you get a much longer life expectancy out of an LED, your maintenance for annoying tasks such as bulb changes is minimized.  And, yes, our LED bulbs CAN be changed out should one fail to light! LED fixtures are cool to the touch so no one risks a burn by simply brushing against them either. As you can see, there’s plenty to love about switching to LED landscape lighting! Get on the LED bandwagon before it costs you money not to make the change! Don’t be the only house left on the block with antiquated halogens that are not environmentally or wallet friendly over the long run!

Pool and Water Feature Lighting Makes the Evening Glow

Pergola inspired Wilmington Columned Pool LightingWe love pool and water feature projects at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Delaware Valley because they pose an interesting challenge beyond traditional landscape lighting. Capturing moving water in the right light is not the kind of task your gardener or even the average homeowner can handle. It requires the expertise of a lighting designer that knows how to add dimension so that it doesn’t appear flat or boring.

Whether it’s a water fountain, pool, koi pond or a waterfall—we can illuminate these features in an impressive way that will wow guests. We create a whole scene around your watery oasis that brings a peacefulness that can be savored day or night. We customize a lighting scheme that is specific to your needs and lifestyle so that you can maximize the use of these areas to the fullest. Obviously, enjoying the pool is an impossibility without good landscape lighting. Why should you not delight in an evening swim after a rough day at work or a pool gathering with friends on the weekends? The party doesn’t need to stop simply because the sun has gone down thanks to illumination that keeps the festivities going all night long.

Media PA Koi Pond lighting

Most homeowners come to us seeking a visually pleasing look for their pool, pond or spa, but we often surprise them by telling them that they will be getting the added benefit of safety as a bonus. Guests can securely walk around your pool deck, lanai and patio if it’s easy to see without the risk of falling into the water or tripping. You can tell exactly who is in the water and what they are doping at all times which brings peace of mind to any homeowner. Skilled lighting stylists take a dramatic flair to brighten your water feature and they pull in the nearby areas so that you have a unified design that feels elegantly planned without looking dull. You can go for a tranquil and quiet mood, or a jazzy modern vibe that is filled with energy with your lighting. We can fulfill your dreams when it comes to style and feel that you are trying to capture in your backyard retreat.

Nightime demo in Newtown Square

Image from nighttime demonstration for clients in Newtown Square.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Delaware Valley has been partnering with a homeowner in Newtown Square, PA, home in Mainline that is part of a multi-phase project. We are starting off by illuminating the elegant and massively tall, white wall that is a backdrop for the family pool. Our goal is to not have it look harsh and imposing, but rather soften it by washing it with light and all the surround foliage and trees. It will soon have a magical moonlit feel that envelops the pool and brings a sense of serenity. We recently scheduled a nighttime demonstration at the property so the homeowners’ could see the design in “real-time”. The clients were so impressed with the results of the demo they have asked us to design a similar treatment to their back patio and other connected areas as well. When it’s complete, the entire pool area and surrounding areas will have a spectacular and cohesive look. Stay tuned for completed images of this stunning property…

We can help you think out of the box when it comes to highlighting these special areas for the best nighttime effect. Even if it’s a rainy day, we can guarantee that the view to your pool, fountain or pond will be a grand one even from the indoors.

National Home Improvement Month Heralds in a Spotlight on Illumination

Glen Mills PA outdoor lighting design adds tons of curb appeal

Outdoor lighting increases the curb appeal of this Glen Mills, PA, home!

This month is National Home Improvement Month and we are focusing on helping customers rejuvenate their outdoor areas and the exterior of their homes and landscapes. Whether you want to add or extend a new deck or patio; put in a cool new structure in such as gazebo, pergola or arbor, or add some exciting hardscape and stone elements for texture—Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Delaware Valley is poised to team up with you and jazz up your nights outdoors with some evening illumination that will be sure to make your evenings glimmer.

It doesn’t matter what type of outdoor addition or home remodel you are planning, we can add a huge dose of curb appeal and energy that will be sure to highlight all the newly added features, flower beds, tree canopies and your home’s façade in an elegant way that adds nighttime curb appeal in an instant. There is no reason your home and grounds should sink into darkness during the late evening hours, as we can showcase all the characteristics that make your home and landscape unique and charming.

deck lighting

One of the most underrated facets of outdoor  lighting is that it can actually extend living space physically and visually. Illuminating a darkened front or backyard makes it look larger because it adds depth to the appearance of the property lines. As you add light to the features within your property boundary lines, such as a pool, water fountain or a fence, your eyes will visually travel out to the farther distance creating a much more dimensional effect that eliminates that flat appearance that can look boring and lacks a lively feel. Great custom lighting allows you to play, dine and entertain all evening long and gives you the opportunity to enjoy the fresh air no matter what the hour. It encourages family to unplug from all the technology that keeps them trapped inside and it inspires communication and more togetherness.

Media PA water feature lighting

Cost effective low voltage LED lighting allows your home and landscape to emerge out of the darkness thanks to a refined and understated outdoor landscape lighting plan that builds pleasing shadows in a  compelling and dramatic way that will leave visitors excited. Your walkways, water features, yard art, trees, and all your structures will exude a tranquil vibe that will pull you to it every evening. Even on a wet and rainy day, you can stare out your windows and enjoy your outdoor surroundings with a good book and a cup of coffee.

outdoor-lighting-perspectives-of-Delaware Valley-led-outdoor-lightingWith the skills of our outdoor lighting architects and the array of quality fixtures that are each designed to offer a different lighting angle geared to your specific situation, we can create the ultimate illumination scheme. Our products are made in the USA and are meant to last season after season regardless of weather conditions, including extreme sun, heavy rains and snow!  We don’t sell inferior fixtures that fall apart and fade after a few seasons like what’s offered at those big box stores. Invest in lighting that will last for years to come with a custom lighting scheme that is all about your lifestyle.

Let Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Delaware Valley make springing forward easy!

Welcome spring smart outdoor lighting timersThis weekend it will be time to adjust all your clocks and timers to reflect the beginning of daylight savings time (DST).  Indeed it is wonderful to have an extra hour of daylight each evening to enjoy the PA and DE outdoors, but, the task of making sure all your devices are in sync can become a headache!

In a perfect world, all timing implements would be advanced enough to do this on their own. An average household can have more than 10 devices they have to adjust for DST; these include the alarm clocks, wall clocks, mantel clocks, clocks on your household appliances (microwave, oven, DVR, etc.) and this is just the tip of the iceberg. Beyond your back door there are more timers that will need to be adjusted too.  These may include your irrigation system and your outdoor lighting timer.

DST is fast approaching!Fortunately, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Delaware Valley can help you cross the chore of having to adjust your outdoor lighting timer OFF your list for good. Outdoor lighting technology continues to advance and enable homeowners to enjoy the benefits of a smarter home. With this in mind, we offer the convenience of “set it and forget it” timers for your Delaware County outdoor lighting system with effortless astronomical timers.

Our Astronomical Timers

Same home as pictured above with outdoor lighting:These timers consist of a single-point control device that is much more accurate than traditional digital timers. GPS technology allows the timer to automatically adjust the times your lights turn on and off. We simply enter the GPS coordinates of your home and the current day and time. Then, your outdoor lighting will turn on at sundown and off at sunrise each day of the year without adjustments. This takes away the need to constantly chasing dusk in order to have your outdoor lighting working in line with any changes from day to night. If makes DST a breeze, and it also adjusts automatically throughout the year for seasonal changes with the onset of darkness from dusk until dawn. Other on/off times can also be entered depending on how long you want lighting system to operate. In addition, we can also implement effortless Blue Tooth controls via your smartphone or tablet to take the convenience of our timers to a new level.

See the difference outdoor lighting can makeOutdated manual timers are a pain  because they require a re-set as the days get shorter or longer. That’s quite the hassle to remember to do that every few months and how to program it. Astronomical timers remove all the worry and fuss of seasonal time changes because they adjust themselves. No need to deal with the aggravation of dials or buttons anymore! You tell your astronomical timer where you live and at what time you’d like your lights to turn on, and it takes care of the rest. They even have a battery backup that saves your settings if the power goes out, too. It certainly doesn’t get easier than that.

Our outdoor lighting enlivens every season!

Our outdoor lighting enlivens every season!

It continually stumps us why most customers think of outdoor lighting in terms of spring and summer, but often forget that evening lighting brings a benefit to every season—including winter. When the nights are the darkest in autumn and winter, landscape lighting becomes even more desirable because of minimized visibility due to longer evenings that creep up on us earlier in the day. Simple tasks like traversing your drivewayto check the mail, walking the dog down your front steps and walkways, or taking out the trash are done much easier when there is a solid ability to see.

There is no reason to quit using the barbecue on your patio or deck in winter when Outdoor Lighting of Delaware Valley installs all important task lighting so that you can tackle the job of flipping those burgers to ensure they are ready and done. You can even enjoy a cup of hot chocolate with your love sitting at your outdoor fireplace that is lit up in the darkness of night thanks to integrated lighting in your custom hardscape that creates a terrific romantic mood. Grab that blanket and snuggle up as you survey the cast of warm light draped around your backyard for a magical nighttime experience. The kids will love trying their hand out at roasting some marshmallows at the fire pit for an evening filled with laughter and memories.

 winter outdoor lightingEven if there is snow on the ground, outdoor lighting takes on an otherworldly effect that looks incredible while you are nestled inside your home. Your landscape will look like a winter wonderland postcard as you gaze out your picture window onto the trees wrapped in snow. Of course, Mother Nature is always boss and in some cases you may have to remove the snow from around your fixtures if it is piled too deep– or simply wait for the illumination to melt it away with its warm glow. LED bulbs will not burn it off as quickly as halogens will, however the snow will eventually dissipate and you will have a gorgeous ethereal radiance that is created right in the snow and ice.

tree lighting in WinterThere truly is nothing more beautiful than your trees and garden in the winter bathed in a gorgeous aura of focused illumination. Even bare branches can take on a stunning haunting look as they uplit from below for a dreamlike  effect. You simply cannot imagine the vibrancy that customized landscape lighting can add to a winter garden that can give your home a warm an inviting look in the depths of the darkest months.

Wintertime is also the ideal time to stay on schedule with regular maintenance so that your landscape lighting system is in good working order. Most importantly, in case there is a significant snowstorm that affects your outdoor lighting, snow damage IS covered in our warranty and will be repaired. It’s truly a no-brainer to partner with Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Delaware Valley.

Most importantly, we are able to offer you a night time demonstration so that you can see the different options available and how each fixture has a unique effect in your outdoor landscape. You wouldn’t invest in purchasing a car without a test drive would you — of course not!

If you’re wondering how we do all this, we simply use battery operated versions of our fixtures so you can get a flavor for the overall look and feel that can be achieved. It helps us to work together to determine what it will take to get your vision to come to life and assists us in tweaking and customizing the exact look you are after.

An evening demonstration allows you to see EXACTLY what the final result will be and we can adjust the design we exceed your outdoor lighting expectations BEFORE they are installed. There is no guessing, frustration or regrets. What you see is what you will get and that’s a very good thing when it comes to your wallet. You can make changes and additions prior to spending a dime on anything so you can ensure you are getting exactly what you want.

Evening Demo

Before and during an evening demonstration:

All our fixtures are made in America of hard-wearing metal with no plastic parts like those cheap overseas versions. Ours won’t just last a season or two, they will last for years! We back everything we install and offer a FREE one year repair and maintenance plan with every system we put in—after that you can extend the plan for a reasonable fee that will ensure everything is always working as it should.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Delaware Valley is the only company that offers you an evening demonstration so you can see exactly what will be the outcome. This temporary experience gives you a real chance to check out exactly what we can do for you so there are no surprises later. When we come back and do the actual install, you will know exactly what you are getting and feel comfortable that you will be satisfied. If you’d like to expand your system later on, we can come back and add to it when your budget and lifestyle allows. We can show you how up lighting, down lighting, path lights and a whole bunch if variations will look without any commitment on your part. You get to try it before you buy it!
