This can best be seen by viewing the night lighting demo, which is tailored specifically to the site. The demo is wired and programmed to be on--the homeowner is now able to go outside and see it for the first time. A walk-around fine-tunes the project. Photos are taken and digital prints are uploaded to the internet. Accurate beam spray and intensity can be honed in by the picture on the internet. Equal illuminance can be compared. Please visit to see our efforts and night lighting photos.

For the most part, the demo is the initial phase of lighting, with fixtures added, eliminated, or moved to a greater strategic area. Flags can hold the spot for new fixtures, and by writing on the flag, the fixture type can be followed.

After a binding contract is reached, our crews begin the installation process. The lighting job is now in the pre-buried state. Another walk-through at dusk will ensure that all fixtures are properly located and pointing to the right spot. The homeowner now needs to sign off on the completion approval, and crews return to finish the installation. The final evening, more pictures are taken and subtle adjustments are performed. Preferred Properties Landscaping checks for any adjustments necessary to the landscape; clean up is done, and lighting automation is discussed. There are many ways to control the landscape lighting. This lighting automation will
be addressed later.

An as-built plan is presented showing all structures, trees, flower beds and electrical requirements relevant to the design. The plan also shows all landscape lighting fixture locations by type and wattage, and are numbered for easy identification.
