How to Add Landscape Lighting to Your Next Project

Well-lit stairs surrounded by shrubs lead to a well-lit deck and the front door of a home.

Work with a Lighting Expert During Construction to Save Time and Money 

The housing market in Baton Rouge, LA, and the surrounding area is booming, with housing prices going up by 15% from 2021 to 2022. Despite rising costs, a buyer’s market is still in effect, making it particularly difficult for trade professionals to stand out from the competition. One potential differentiator is integrating outdoor spaces and services. 

Custom patio builders, pool installers and other contractors focused on outdoor areas are seeing unprecedented demand. So how can you leverage this trend in your favor? One easy way is to incorporate landscape lighting in your projects through the right partner.

By bringing low-voltage experts like Acadian Home Theater & Automation into your project early, you’ll have a clean canvas for your clients to work with. Below we outline some ways we’ll design a tailor-made lighting solution that will wow your clients without bogging down your projects.

Why Work with a Professional Early 

Our team helps you take your new construction project to the next level with our professional landscape lighting services. We’ll meet directly with your client and demo some of our products to help them figure out what they want out of their space. We’ll find out the fixtures they want to use and how they’d like to manage them. 

We’ll discuss their goals for this outdoor lighting, from added safety and security to an improved overall lifestyle. As we mentioned, doing this early gives us as much flexibility as possible to make their desires a reality. We’ll create detailed schematics and immediately get inventory sorted to ensure there are no lengthy delays due to supply chain issues. 

By working with technology experts rather than doing it yourself, you ensure you meet all code and safety measures, that the system integrates seamlessly with their other smart home technology and that the client has someone to go to for maintenance and support. 

What You Get from Our Design Services 

After meeting with your client and doing a walk-through of the property, we’ll develop CAD drawings laying out the locations of all fixtures and wiring infrastructure. These design documents also include fixture models, wiring sizes (both in gauge and length), and the location of any controllers or transformers. These drawings are shared with builders, architects and interior designers to coordinate within your overall project. 

This early coordination on the overall lighting design reduces the need for adjustments and expansions down the line. That means fewer costly change orders or lengthy delays for your client. As a result, you’ll be able to deliver a transformative outdoor space without significantly extending your project timeline or frustrating your client.
