Through our numerous years in the Raleigh NC landscape lighting field, we’ve gained the expertise to bring your yard to life after dark.

Bringing your yard to life at night is best executed through both practical and aesthetic illumination. As we’ve mentioned before, there’s a very fine line between too much and too little illumination.

No matter if you’re hosting dozens of guests or just a small get-together, festive lighting is an excellent idea.

Apex NC outdoor lightingLet’s not forget about deck lighting. While you may have a few lights on your deck, they more than likely are pretty dim for reaching all areas of your deck. Additionally, do you have enough illumination to both grill on your deck and dine there as well during the nighttime hours? We can create different zones on your deck with corresponding amounts of illumination. For instance, your grilling area may need a more direct, abundant amount of practical illumination so you can clearly see what you’re grilling. Your dining area would benefit more from a more subtle amount of illumination to create a pleasant dining experience.

What’s the Difference? Our LEDs vs. the Bargain Brand in Raleigh

The LEDs we chose create beautiful scenes we are proud of.

The LEDs we chose create beautiful scenes we are proud of.

It’s no secret that LED outdoor lighting is far more energy efficient than more traditional forms of outdoor lighting like halogen. It’s slightly less well-known that LED outdoor lighting can look just as good as halogen. In fact, with the newest technology, Raleigh LED outdoor lighting can even be mixed into a halogen system without anyone being able to tell the difference in the light. This has been very welcomed news to homeowners. Now, you can have beautiful outdoor light while saving on your energy bill every month. You also conserve energy, which is good for the environment and reduces your carbon footprint.

 

The LEDs we use are produced by the premier company doing LED research and development.

If you’ve already called Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Raleigh about LED outdoor lighting, you may have already seen your demonstration and received your quote. Then low and behold, you walk into your local, discount hardware store, see LEDs, and realize these are a lot cheaper than those used in your quote. No, they’re not the CREE brand used by Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Raleigh, but the extra cost is only for the brand name, right? Not in this case. CREE is certainly a special brand, and yes, there are many bargain LEDs available on the market. However, when you pay for CREE LEDs, you’re not just paying for a brand. You’re paying for technology.

 

Quality makes a big difference.

Quality makes a big difference.

CREE has been one of the leading researchers and developers of LED technology since it emerged. They developed the technology that took LED light from the old, bluish look that few wanted illuminating their properties to clear, warm lighting that is beautiful and allows true colors to shine. When you pay for these LEDs you aren’t just paying for a name, you’re paying the research that made the light possible. Take a look at the bargain brand. Do you see a CRI rating on the packaging? The CRI rating tells you the color temperature of the light. Chances are, the bargain LEDs will not have this, so you won’t know how the light will look until your purchase the LED, install it, and turn it on. The light it emits would probably stand out amongst a system of halogen bulbs. Additionally with CREE, you are paying for components that are subjected to rigorous quality and energy efficiency testing. These LEDs last longer and consume less energy than others on the market.

 

So what’s the difference? With the CREE LEDs used by Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Raleigh, you are assured beautiful light that is efficient and stands the test of time. We are outdoor lighting specialists that take pride in our work since it speaks for us. We want each system we install to be striking and breath taking and use the very best LEDs because they make this possible.
