Light up your world with custom outdoor light fixtures!

custom outdoor light fixturesWe were so excited to recently create these custom outdoor light fixtures again!  We designed these fish basket lanterns to hang in the client’s trees in the back yard.

We love the way they sway in the trees and light up the entire yard.  The are done with energy efficient LED lighting.

The guru designed these fixtures for another client last summer and we posted about it here.

We thought we would share some recent customer testimonials that speak to our focus on customer service:

“Awesome Job Guys! We are so thrilled with the result and the job that was done.  Wow, I have dealt with 6-10 contractors over the past 2 years and this is the 1st time, the job was done correctly the first time, on time and done very well.  The team was very thorough in design and install and all the way to clean up. We could not even tell that they had been there except for the awesome lights installed in the front and the outdoor lighting in the back. I was and am still amazed how professional the staff was and how great of a job was done. We could not be more happier with them. AAA++++” Max N

Fight the Bite – Protect your Family from Mosquitoes this summer

Firepit-Web-main-Rev-1Officials fear the perfect storm this summer in Texas with our mild winter and wet spring which all lead to more mosquitoes.   The Zika virus is in the headlines but to date nobody in Texas has contracted the disease locally.  However, mosquitoes in Mexico are carrying the virus and it is expected to hit Texas this summer.   The bigger risk right now is West Nile Virus which is contracted locally and can have effects just as devastating as Zika.  So how can you protect your family this summer?  Here are some quick tips to fight the bite with mosquito protection!

Keep them out of your house by using air conditioning inside or making sure your screens in your windows and doors are intact.  Look for all sources of standing water around your home.  Did you know a soda can filled with water can be enough of a breeding ground for 20 mosquitoes?  So even if you don’t think you have standing water, it is worth a check around the house especially with all the recent rain.

Protect yourself from getting mosquito bites by limiting the time you spend outside during peak hours. If you are outside, using an insect repellent as well as wearing long sleeved shirts and long pants are recommended.  Many don’t like using the repellent and wearing long sleeves in the Texas heat doesn’t seem all that enjoyable.  So what else can you do?

hvrfabl_black-v2-webLandscape Lighting Guru is excited to announce we are now offering mosquito protection for your outdoor living areas with a unique new product.  The Mosquito Repellent fixture offers mosquito repellency to enhance your patio, deck or yard.  The patented mosquito protection system is effective providing protection within 15 minutes of use and is effective against all types of mosquitoes, including the Aedes aegypti mosquito, a known carrier of the Zika virus.  It is conveniently odorless, silent, invisible during use – no smelly oils, smoke, or zapping sounds to disturb you.

If you are interested in learning more about how this fixture can protect your family this summer, please give us a call at 210-710-7737.

 

Elements of Lighting Artwork

Lighting ArtworkThe weather has been a challenge lately. I’m sure glad we get to do interior projects as well. Here are some before and after pictures of a beautiful 100 year old home in San Antonio. This customer has the most amazing art collection. The right LED lighting was really what was needed in this home.  Lighting artwork is an important element to the piece itself.

Most importantly, the client was happy with the results.  The following was his testimonial:

“The Guru team did a great job! The lighting in our home was more cave like than anything, it was impossible to enjoy the art pieces or even the living room after dark. The transformation was incredible, I feel like I am in a new home. Job well done!” ~Brad Gray

Time for an Outdoor Lighting Tune-up?

Outdoor Lighting Tune-upIs your landscape lighting ready for summer?  With Memorial day as the unofficial start to summer, it is perfect time for an outdoor lighting tune-up.  As you plan to spend more time outside in the pool and yard, you want your lighting operating perfectly and safely.  Even the highest quality fixtures need a little TLC from time to time to keep them in tip top condition.

Outdoor lighting systems need to be inspected and serviced at least twice a year to remain in good condition. We offer maintenance agreements that provide bi annual 16 point service and inspection of your entire system. Included in this service is a pest preventive application for all your fixtures and components which we highly recommend. Pests can infiltrate your lights and wreak havoc on your electrical system which can be costly to repair, and usually is not covered under manufacturer warranty.

Our goal in our 16 point service and inspection is to keep your lighting looking as good tomorrow as it was the day it was installed. During the service we will inspect every fixture, transformer, wire and timer to make sure they are working properly.

If you are interested in learning more, please give us a call at 210-710-7737.

Reducing Light Pollution

light pollutionWe are excited to be now be a member of the International Dark-Sky Association (IDA). It may seem counter-intuitive, but we really do believe in responsible lighting. When outdoor lighting is designed well, there can be little to no light pollution.  Light pollution not only wastes energy and money but is harmful to the environment.

Responsible lighting includes installing quality outdoor lighting, especially using new LED technology.  Outdoor lighting should be fully shielded and direct light down where it is needed, not into the sky.  We also favor moon lighting, and down lighting effect over up lighting, because done right it can achieve the same results without going into the sky.  Timers, dimmers and motion sensors are also a way to reduce lighting pollution. IDA estimates that least 30 percent of all outdoor lighting in the U.S. alone is wasted, mostly by lights that aren’t shielded.
