Here at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Wilmington, we have the opportunity to create some of the most most beautiful outdoor lighting designs for our neighbors. Just last week, we were able to accomplish this for an entire community by upgrading the subdivision entrance lighting at the famous River Sea Plantation. As one of Wilmington premiere gated communities, they were looking for a way to project the elegance and luxury their community offers, highlighting their beautiful Palm’s, Crepe Myrtles and Holly trees, to welcome their residents home after a long hard day. Their old outdoor lighting system wasn’t illuminating the three entrances and islands as it should so we designed a new lighting plan to enhance the entire area with top-of-the-line Wilmington LED outdoor lighting fixtures. Here’s what we did:
When we arrived, we found that the main entrance was dimly lit with old fixtures, worn out bulbs and bad wiring. We rewired all 18 existing fixtures at this entrance and retrofitted them to use our energy-efficient LED bulbs. Each of these re-lamped fixtures now shines elegantly on the trees that looked stunning during the day but were lost in the darkness. The entrance looks new again and these magnificent trees make a bold statement at night.
On the second entrance, we replaced their old halogen fixtures with our LED stick lights illuminating the Crepe Myrtles and Holly trees. Replacing the old fixtures increased the systems efficiency – LED outdoor lighting bulbs can last an estimated 25 years, as opposed to traditional halogen bulbs which must be replaced every few years – and helped illuminate harder to reach spots. Our LED stick lights are specifically designed to fit in places where other lights just can’t. Tight corners, small overhangs and other trouble spots are easily brightened up with this fixture.
The center island between the two entrances was just as dark due to the old lighting. We added 6 of our LED stick lights and retrofitted 39 other fixtures to our LEDs, illuminating the distinctive Palm trees unique to our area.
Lastly, the Summer Haven entrance was upgraded by retrofitting 6 of their fixtures to our LEDs and we added 2 of our durable well lights to bring out the textures and colors of the Holly trees within the entrance.
River Sea Plantation offers some of the most beautiful sights and luxurious amenities of any gated community in Wilmington, so we wanted to bring that out even after dark. Now all three entrances and the center island are brilliantly lit with 16 new LED outdoor lighting fixtures and 55 of their current fixtures upgraded to LED for a total of 71 brilliantly lit LED outdoor lighting fixtures. Their new LEDs not only will they look beautiful, their efficiencies will save River Sea Plantation on their energy consumption and maintenance costs. River Sea’s entrances are now sure to leave a lasting impression on anyone who drives by because of our custom outdoor lighting design and upgrades.
If your community is looking for a better outdoor lighting design or is in need of some upgrades, drive by River Sea Plantation to see what we’ve done and then give us a call to have us design a plan for you.
