With this Clearwater residential custom outdoor lighting installation for an outdoor gym, you could say that we’re good to the core. Literally.

These fitness conscious clients wanted to illuminate the exterior of their home gym using uplighting in a unique way.

They wanted to have lights installed into their travertine patio, which for other outdoor lighting companies is virtually impossible. Never having met a challenge we didn’t like or couldn’t solve, we called in our A Team.

With travertine being a terrestrial limestone, we needed to employ core drilling to achieve this installation.

Core drilling is a highly specialized, accurate and clean way to drill holes in hard travertine and concrete surfaces and is typically listed as a basic service by concrete-cutting experts.

As this outdoor lighting schema required meticulously drilled, perfectly rounded holes to receive the installation of our flat patio lights, core drilling was the optimum methodology to achieve what we needed.

Interesting to note is that core drilling is one method of collecting rock and sediment samples for geological research as coring drill bits are designed with a central opening, around which the drill bit cuts the borehole.


Although some lighting companies may steer clear of a design and installation plan like this, these are the kind of illumination opportunities we live for.

Our expertise and innovative way of creating dependable, long-term outdoor lighting solutions for our clients is just one of our claims to fame.

Ready to meet these unique challenges like patio and hardscape lighting throughout our Clearwater and Tampa area, we are well equipped with the skill set, rich experience and machinery to make illumination installations like this a reality. This proven methodology ensured that this lovely travertine surface would get the professional attention and respect it deserved.


As Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Clearwater & Tampa Bay has a core driller, we were able to easily access the travertine exterior floor and from there, drill out the area where we needed to install the lighting.

Having critically-important machinery as part of our solutions arsenal makes many of the elemental details of our exterior lighting projects possible.

Whereas other lighting companies would have had to outsource a costly core driller for this important detail or sacrifice a successful installation with a second-choice placement, we did not. Being able to penetrate solid surfaces such as travertine and concrete hardscapes gives us an advantage over any other design and installation lighting resource.

It also delivers a cohesive, non-obtrusive design feature that places the light source out of the way. This is important when working in a patio setting, or in areas where space is tight.
