Nighttime demonstrations help our clients see what outdoor lighting can do to transform their landscape. Palm tree lighting is a favorite of ours because we really know how to make these majestic trees stand out in the dark. The proper angle of light is what can make or break the look of lighting any tree on your property.
Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Clearwater & Tamp Bay had the opportunity to do a lighting demo for a client recently. They had 40-50 foot tall palms that called to be illuminated in a unique way. We used LED well lights at the base of the trunk that had no trouble reaching up high. The textured bark and palm fronds were stunningly lit from below with spectacular appeal. Of course, the client was sold on the look!
Palm tree accent lighting requires specific expertise that our lighting designers have. We use lighting angles that show off trunk texture and highlight the whispery fronds. Uplighting a super-tall palm tree requires a spotlight that can reach up to great heights. To make this work, some landscapers will opt for using a high wattage halogen bulb. This is dangerously hot if touched, and it’s a wallop to your power bill. Instead, we use safe, efficient LED that can precisely target the area of illumination and is wallet-friendly.
Uplighting isn’t the only solution to lighting a tree in your garden. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Clearwater & Tampa Bay can install fixtures to mimic moonlight. Light is cast through the foliage with striking effect especially on a breezy evening. Pretty shadows on your lawn are the result of this dappled moonlit look. It’s simply gorgeous!
We are specialists at lighting trees of all shapes and sizes. We can highlight the bark and canopy with exquisite effect with up and downlighting effects. Our designers will cast a lovely glow on foliage and the branching structure to make a tree pop in the landscape. Highlight an ornamental tree, a huge palm or even a row of clipped shrubs in a memorable way passersby will love.
Our American made copper and brass fixtures are of the highest quality available on the market. We don’t sell big-box store plastic or thin metal that only lasts a season or two in our coastal climate — ours are built to last. We have beautiful styles that complement every taste and architecture, too. We also offer our customers a FREE 1-year maintenance plan with every new install we do.
