Lighting Techniques

As the pioneer in “Design Built” landscape illumination techniques, we take a black ‘nighttime’ canvas and artistically paint an overall ambiance. We are the premier designer in the world, provide our personally trained technicians for installation and make our own custom “Moonlight” units in all types of lighting applications.

Uplighting “Aesthetic” Illumination

We’ve mastered the process of making the height and beauty of your gardens come to life! Our “aesthetic” uplighting units are carefully hidden in shrubbery or plant beds. If used in grass areas, we go to the added expense of installing flush mounted units (equivalent to underwater fixtures). When you arrive home at night, you should not see how we have created the illumination, but just the “Magic of Moonlight”.

Downlighting “Moonshadow” Illumination

All of our downlighting units are heavily shielded, so from the normal viewing angles, you do not see into the fixtures. We have the ability to create the perfect nighttime ambiance with a mixture of the best type and usage of light. The artistic width and length of your gardens are expressed through natural “Moonshadows”. We use all different sizes of units depending on the type of trees and different expected illumination effects. The same brightness should radiate throughout your gardens every night like the full moon.

Mercury Vapor Gas Discharge Versus Light Emitting Diode (LED) Illumination

JWLI supports “green” energy and the newest LED technology. Mercury vapor gas discharge units have long been the predominate and preferred type of illumination due to the natural “Moonlight” color. Advances in LED technology can now reproduce the same effect with regards to intensity at a substantially lower energy cost. Additionally, mercury vapor lamps lasting 24,000 hours versus LED 50,000 hour life lamps, give our clientele the best long-term options available. If you are interested in going “green”, contact us to book an LED Retrofit assessment. Upon completing your personal analysis, we will outline the cost to convert your existing lighting to more energy efficient LED lighting. This enables owners to make a more informed choice on the lighting packages based on electrical consumption costs, future maintenance expenses and initial investment.
