Illuminating your neighborhood entrance, its sign and the landscaping surrounding the entry truly signals to visiting guests that they’ve arrived to a place that’s a little beyond the ordinary. There is a certain feel of elegance and even increased stature that comes about simply from having a welcoming main entryway into the community. Custom lighting is a way to dress things up in a gorgeous way at a relatively low price point that has big impact. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Clearwater & Tampa uses commercial grade fixtures and skillful techniques that will make a striking impression to all who enter or drive by.
The benefits of a good outdoor lighting plan also goes beyond just being attractive, too. Proper lighting ensures your subdivision is easily found not only by visitors, but also by emergency crews such as your local fire and police departments where every minute counts to accurately find where you live instead of hunting in the dark for the proper location. Your neighborhood sign should easily be seen by drivers heading down the road so that they can easily turn into the neighborhood without having to make a U-turn or backtrack because the sign was not properly lit or their GPS has failed to be of help. Good lighting also increases pedestrian visibility, so the homeowners feel safer when walking or driving in and out of their neighborhood in the evenings.
Entrance outdoor lighting helps deter crime, as thieves will likely avoid a neighborhood they think is well lit with lots of people potentially strolling around. They are more likely to head to a darkly lit subdivision where they can easily target homes where they cannot be seen. We will make sure your system goes on at dusk and turns off at early dawn for the highest level of security and safety. In fact, lighting all the main areas of your subdivision is a good idea since it makes it safe for homeowners to traverse the blocks in the evening while out with the dog or simply getting some fresh air. If they can clearly see where they are going there is less likelihood for trips and accidents to happen.
Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Clearwater & Tampa Bay has worked closely with local homeowners associations (HOA’s) to put together a complete package to light up their community entrances within budget and that suits the designated architectural scheme as required. We can also be on call for repairs or to replace lamps, check for damage, diagnose electrical connection issues and even replace fixtures or wiring that has suffered due to auto accidents. We have worked with HOA’s to replace older systems with halogen and incandescent lighting to a more energy efficient LED format that can save the neighborhood money over the long term in electrical bills and is longer lasting—plus there are no burned out bulbs to continually replace. One LED bulb can get you over 50,000+ hours of use!
The clubhouse is another place that HOA’s often overlook when it comes to outdoor lighting. We can help make this structure–which is often a strong selling point for many considering living in the community and is actively used in the evenings and during special events–look like an architectural gem in the neighborhood. Our team of experts can also assist the HOA and neighbors in lighting the common areas within the community, the pool house and surround, community center, pathways, medians and even the walkways, too! No plan is too small or too large, and we set up systems so that they can easily be added on to as budgets and time allows or the community grows.
At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Clearwater & Tampa Bay, we will create an incredible nightscape that truly lights up the neighborhood entry in a sophisticated and stylish way. It doesn’t matter if there is a fabulous tree that has to make a statement, stone pillars or columns, statuary or even a water feature—we will make sure visitors and homeowners are wowed when they drive into the community.
In addition, we can come in during the winter season and easily tie into the existing lighting system to add festive holiday lighting that will truly make the homeowners feel special and will be the envy of every passerby.
