Flexibility with LED
In recent years the whole lighting industry has changed drastically. LEDs are quickly becoming commonplace while other technologies are largely going the way of the Dodo. Even so, we still get frequent questions concerning LED light quality.
In the early days, LED lamps generally had a very cool white light, making the lighting appear harsh. Today we can get LEDs with varying degrees of warmth from 2200K to 5700K with high color rendering accuracy. This allows us to design with the particular “temperature” of light that we desire to really make your project pop!
Energy Savings Through Efficiency
In addition to their flexibility, LEDs use a fraction of the energy that standard halogen or incandescent bulbs do. In many cases our LED outdoor lighting systems use about 1/4 of the power of traditional systems. This of course saves on your electric bill. As an added bonus, we can generally also install fewer wire runs and smaller transformers on LED systems, reducing installation costs.
Do you have an existing halogen system? No problem! We can retrofit your existing system using high quality LED lamps.
The Right Tools for the Job
The old adage “When all you have is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail” can certainly be true in landscape lighting. You may notice the result of this approach with overly bright “hot spots” striping house walls and glaring light sources. This is why we use many different products and manufacturers to execute our projects. We have experience with dozens of manufacturers and have terrific distributors that help us specify the perfect fixture for your project.
We believe that not only does the lighting need to look terrific at night, but the fixtures need to look attractive during the day as well. This is especially true of highly-visible fixtures such as path or step lights. We generally use only brass, stainless steel and copper with many different finishes including nickel and bronze. This level of durability will stand the test of time and look great for many years to come.
Unforgettable Landscape Lighting Design
At Vincent Landscapes, Inc. we pride ourselves in striving to create the best outdoor and landscape lighting projects in Austin. Kellan Vincent, our lead designer, has years of experience designing with light and has attended the prestigious International Landscape Lighting Institute. Compared to many lighting companies who tend to add uplighting to everything, we think it is important to really focus on the design aspect and create lighting layers. This not only looks more attractive, but creates better lighting quality for entertainment and safety. We can even provide renderings to help communicate the lighting ideas!
