Project Description

The City of Pinecrest, South Florida is an extremely dark neighborhood. Combined with the large lots and few city and street illumination it is very dark at night. Landscape lighting is a necessity in this area of Miami Dade. It provides beauty but also very importantly security.

This particular home is in the heart of Pinecrest near my alma mater Gulliver Preparatory. I drove by this home hundreds of times growing up. The beautiful mature oak trees and beautiful vegetation always impressed me. This particular home sits on almost an acre. It is practically hidden amongst all the beautiful landscape.

We installed our black 6061 anodized aluminum LED spotlight in the front and backyard, and pool area. The home also has a beautiful pathway that goes around almost the entire property. This path leads to an area I like to call the Zen garden. It has a beautiful fountain and is very peaceful. We illuminated the entire path with our LED path light. The path light only uses 1 watt of energy and is as bright as a 20-watt halogen bulb. The home had existing 110 volt also known as high voltage spotlights on many of the larger trees. The fixtures where very old and were not working properly. Our client wanted to upgrade to LED for those fixtures. We replaced all of them with high voltage LED spots.

The entire yard is 80% more efficient than before. The LEDs are all rated for 50,000 hours.
