Designing and Constructing Ecologically Sensitive and Functional Outdoor Living Spaces

Excerpt from November 2018 Newsletter

As the days become shorter and gardens are being readied for their winter's nap, many elements of the landscape are just starting to reveal their true beauty. Red, yellow, orange, and purple leaves dot the landscape along with the colorful bark and stems of many of our natives. Now that the fall weather has cooled and the rains are coming steadily, our irrigation technicians are blowing out hose bibs, dock water lines, drip lines and irrigation heads to prevent them from freezing over the winter.

Low voltage lighting systems are on our minds now that the nights are arriving earlier each passing day. It is absolutely amazing how just a few lights in the landscape can unify the indoors and outdoors by turning dark, reflective windows into an expansive view of the winter landscape. Lighting up a few specimen trees or architectural features of the home will bring a whole new perspective. Safety first! Many of our lighting designs include functional lighting such as an access path, entrance porch or driveway. The LED fixtures available today provide a natural light effect with longevity and energy savings to boot. Unity sales experts are now working diligently to set up demo lighting systems for folks interested in seeing what a lighting system can do, and more often than not we are back to install a new lighting system days after we remove the demo lighting.
