Free Evening Demonstrations help homeowners "See their home in a whole new light"]/b]
March 05, 2008 // Franchising.com // Local homeowners, builders and landscape architects looking to create visually dramatic properties have a port in the storm with Lighthouse Landscape Lighting of Dallas.
Lighthouse offers a variety of low voltage lighting options that move well beyond simply installing path lights. The local firm's services move architectural lighting into the realm of artistic design and one of their professionally installed systems will enhance property value and extend your enjoyment of outdoor living spaces well after the sun sets.
"The perception of many homeowners is that landscape lighting means putting in some lights along the walkways", said Lori Gamradt, owner of Lighthouse Landscape Lighting of Dallas. "What Lighthouse does is so much more then that. Whether it's by highlighting stone work or the use of shadowing, we will come to people's homes at night and demonstrate how lighting a home and property is not only functional but really creates a dramatic effect."
According to the American Lighting Association, the biggest excitement in outdoor lighting is the "artistic aspect", and using a trained specialist like Gamradt will help the homeowner realize their property's full potential.
'The challenge with landscape lighting is that people don't immediately see all of the possibilities", says Joe Rey-Barreau, American Lighting Association's consulting director of education and director of the Lighting and Design Center at the University of Kentucky. "Outdoor lighting can be both functional and aesthetic. It's an art to understand how much light to place on a house or to determine where the focal points are".
Lighthouse Landscape Lighting has been in business since 1994. The company is an industry leader and has completed over 5,000 installations nationwide. All franchise locations go through a comprehensive training program prior to their opening. The company's mission is to provide creative outdoor lighting designs, professional installations and on-going service and support. All products are 100% brass and carry an unprecedented lifetime warranty.
