Neighborhood Entry and Landscape Lighting Make for a Warm Welcome at Sterling Springs Estates

Nestled on the east side of Louisville you’ll find the gorgeous tight-knit community of Sterling Springs Estates. The ninety-five homes boast large half acre lots and are within one of the best school districts in Louisville. At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Louisville, we had the distinct pleasure of taking this already fabulous neighborhood to the next level by recreating the warm welcome the HOA had always intended for their residents.

One of the most important aspects of creating a desirable community is by making it look great. Sterling Springs Estates has large lots and gorgeous homes that are kept tidy and neat, making it an in demand subdivision. The one area that needed improvement as of late was the outdoor lighting system. With homes that are reaching around 25 years old, it is no wonder that the original neighborhood lighting system was beginning to fail. The Sterling Springs Estates HOA president, Scott Pottinger called us to provide the community with the perfect lighting for a warm and inviting entrance after dark.


The Sterling Springs Estates entrance is marked prominently by four stone columns connected by matching landscape walls on each side of the drive, and a wrought iron gate. Continue onward to enjoy a 500-foot long brick wall on the right and a beautiful softscape median to your left.

Our priority was to make sure the neighborhood entrance was visible at night for guests and residents alike. With LED uplighting on the columns that host the neighborhood signage, everyone will know they are Sterling Springs Estates. Next, we tackled the illuminating of the brick wall, a perfect feature to wash with light for adding visibility to the drive in and a warm welcome home after a long day at work. Wall washing is the perfect outdoor lighting technique for neighborhood entries.

Sterling Springs Estates features some of the most scenic and unique landscape we have seen within Louisville subdivisions. With a prominent creek that provides a charming median between residents entering and residents exiting the neighborhood, we knew what we had to do.

With extremely long wire runs and some ingenuity in affixing the fixtures to the creek bed, we were able to make this delightful landscape a scene to admire at night too. With the days getting shorter and shorter as we move deeper into autumn, the residents will not only enjoy the picturesque warm welcome home, but also will enjoy walking their dogs after work without having to stick so closely to the sidewalk.

The results at Sterling Springs Estates speak for themselves. By working closely with the HOA President, we were able to give this community everything they wanted and stay within their allotted budget. If your neighborhood entrance, drive or community space could use some illumination, call Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Louisville today. We look forward to working with you and your HOA.
