One of the best parts of my job is getting to meet and work with so many wonderful homeowners. I consider it an honor and privilege that they chose Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Greenville to assist them with their outdoor lighting needs. The only thing that can make these experiences even more rewarding, is discovering that we are providing our services to those who are either currently serving or have previously served in our military branches. Such is the case with our most recent outdoor lighting project for US Army veteran Ed Brown and his wife, of Asheville, NC.
This lovely couple contacted us after they had personally completed the labor intensive project of creating a beautiful backyard retreat. Although their new outdoor living space was loaded with fine amenities such as a custom water fall and pond feature, a fire feature, extensive landscape and hardscape renovations, new walkways and retaining walls, they felt it just wasn’t complete without a custom outdoor lighting design. Being somewhat familiar with outdoor lighting, they realized that the intricate layout and broad range of fixture styles needed to truly showcase and enhance all of their hard work would be best left to a professional outdoor lighting company.
After several unsuccessful attempts through typical service source sites and local recommendations to locate a full service outdoor lighting design, installation and maintenance company, Ed finally did an internet search. During this search he came across a link showcasing the “Transformation Augusta” video series completed by Outdoor Lighting Perspectives in Augusta, GA which portrayed the exact type of full service lighting for which he was looking…and with a click of his mouse he requested additional information.
It was at this point Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Greenville received his request, contacted him to discuss his outdoor lighting needs and scheduled an initial site assessment. Typically during this consultation we get a real feel for the space while working with the homeowners to truly understand their lighting priorities. For this project, the homeowners stated that they envisioned “a soothing ambiance” for their new space…not “a landing strip” and specifically wanted to accentuate their water feature and special landscaped areas and provide ample pathway lighting to ensure safe navigation on the steps and walkways.
As you can see from these pictures, that is exactly what we did for this special area to which Ed often refers to as his Zen Garden designed backyard retreat–we extended the functionality of this exquisite space. He and his wife now have a custom designed and versatile outdoor living environment in which they can relax, decompress after work, enjoy cozy alfresco dining for two and even entertain guests during day or night!
As with all new installations, with the purchase of this system, these homeowners receive free maintenance for one year, meaning they won’t have to adjust a fixture or change a single light bulb. They can just sit back and enjoy the view…and if there’s a problem, we’ll be there promptly to take care of it. Once they had several days to fully take in the effects of their new outdoor lighting design, we contacted them to do a final site visit to personally thank them for their business, confirm that they were enjoying it and to make sure it was performing to their full satisfaction.
I personally performed this final visit and found these homeowners more than thrilled with the outdoor lighting design we installed and the service we provided. A few weeks after my visit, Ed gave these comments regarding their experience with Outdoor Living Perspectives of Greenville and I just had to share them:
“I would definitely recommend Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Greenville to others looking for the full package in outdoor lighting. From start to finish, the continuity of the project and interpretation of our vision was seamless due to the professionalism of both Chris and Billy. Chris is very knowledgeable and included my input on the design and fixture selection. Billy, the owner, called me personally about this project, came to my home after the installation to check on our satisfaction and actually got out in my backyard to help me do a small adjustment to one light…THAT was impressive! We couldn’t have asked for anything better and our new outdoor lighting system is a blessing to us both.”
