Many homes have a magnificent pool, but the daytime oasis can become dangerous and sometimes even spooky at night without the proper landscape lighting. Too often clients rely on coach lights, lanterns, and ugly security lights that fail to provide the beautiful aesthetic effect while attracting bugs. By illuminating your pool and its surroundings, we create a sense of safety and security that exceeds the homeowners’ expectations.
Due to their inherent construction, existing lighting often cannot provide the ambiance needed to enjoy your deck in the evening hours, especially when not included in the original plan. Carefully placed fixtures in discrete locations will subtly provide the desired mood. We often mount lights on the deck’s fence or rails, illuminating the space while defining its boundaries. Wires are masked by custom strips selected to match the deck’s finish.
Perhaps the simplest form of lighting we provide, pathway lighting can softly illuminate any driveway, pathway, or receding area. We have thousands of fixtures available, most of which can be obtained within a week’s time.
At Jeff Mitchell Lighting we have improved and perfected many of our industry’s techniques, but we are perhaps most noted for our approach to down lighting. The process, easier to demonstrate than describe, is portrayed in several photos in our portfolio that show lights mounted between 70 and 80 feet high in the trees - from the ground up. We are able to achieve this effect by literally climbing up into the trees to install and maintain the lights. At these heights, the fixtures create a unique glow, bathing areas in light which could simply not be illuminated in any other fashion. The challenges of this technique demand specific materials, including fixtures that attach the lights to the trees, stainless steel screws, and specially designed brackets. If the lights are not maintained they will eventually be shed off as the tree grows.
