Landscape Lighting Designer, Orlando, FL
You’ll love coming home after the sun sets when our landscape lighting designer has created the ideal ambiance for you.
There is a reason why people hire an interior designer when they want their home to be the best it can be. You can put the same furniture in two different homes and the result can be far different if one layout was designed by a professional and the other was not. The same is true for landscape lighting. While you could purchase lighting products from a big box retailer and install them yourself at your Orlando, Florida home, you’ll get a much better result when you work with a landscape lighting designer.
At Elegant Custom Images, we have the expertise with product selection and placement to create a transformation for your home that would be difficult to achieve without a landscape lighting designer. It can actually be more affordable to hire us than to keep buying substandard lighting and getting subpar results that don’t impress you and leave you purchasing even more products, hoping to make things better. We’ll get it right the first time using top-quality outdoor lighting products and designing a layout that casts the perfect blend of illumination and shadow to create an appealing, welcoming appearance.
With the help of a landscape lighting designer, you can return home after the sun has set and be confident that you’ll reach the front door without stepping off the walkway or tripping on something left behind during the day. In addition, since your home’s curb appeal is improved with landscape lighting, you’ll smile when you see it, and so will potential buyers when it comes time to list your home for sale.
If you have any questions about what it’s like to work with a landscape lighting designer and professional outdoor lighting installation company, don’t hesitate to reach out to us.

Landscape Lighting Fixtures
Elegant Custom Images carries a variety of landscape lighting fixtures to suit your needs, depending on your budget and style preferences. Our Heavy Cast Brass lighting fixtures are top of the line in terms of both quality and durability. We get our solid brass fixtures from a manufacturer that has years of experience, and is well known as an industry leader in landscape lighting fixtures. Milled Brass fixtures are another option for your landscape lighting needs. These fixtures are second to none in terms of quality, with a price tag that falls midway between the cheapest and most expensive lighting fixtures. Milled brass fixtures are heavy duty and come with a full 25-year warranty. Some landscape lighting firms promote low-cost aluminum lighting fixtures. But, there’s a big trade-off when it comes to durability, particularly in Florida. Aluminum fixtures may be cheaper than brass, but they don’t fare well in our heat and humidity. They rust and corrode prematurely. Powder coated products fade quickly too. And most take a lesser wattage bulb as a maximum size, compared to other metal fixtures. Aluminum lighting fixtures are also more susceptible to damage from landscapers. These fixtures typically don’t last more than 2-3 years, compared to brass, which will last for decades. Investing a little more today in a brass fixture will pay dividends for years to come.
We use only stainless steel, 25-year transformers. The cores have been wrapped in silicone to prevent corrosion here in Florida. The products are very good quality and have capacities ranging from 300 watts to 1500 watts. The transformers all are multi-tapped, which enable us to design a landscape lighting system that has the exact voltage requirements at every location on your property. This is an important piece as the bulbs are halogen gas bulbs. They require heat to light the bulb. Voltage provides the heat. If the voltage is too high or low, then the bulbs will burn at a faster rate. Too high on the voltage very well could destroy the lighting fixture on top of everything else. So the proper amount of voltage is an absolute must. They all have multiple commons, which allow us to spread the amp loads out across the transformer and keep the system running as cool as possible.Remember, the cooler things run, the longer they last!
On all home runs, we use nothing but high quality 12 gauge wire, all UL approved, underground burial wire. The lighting wire is guaranteed for the life of the system.
Landscape Lighting Bulbs
We use 75,000 hour rated LED lights in our outdoor landscape lighting fixtures. The LED’s come in various colors such as warm white (most commonly used), standard white and cool white. When the landscape lighting system is designed correctly, with the proper voltage maintained at each fixture, then the system will run a very long time.
At Elegant Custom Images, we solder all of our connections at the hubs, so the wiring cannot pull apart; we include brass crimping and place the connections in long, heavy duty grease tubes, and then place them in a main hub. In this way, we can certify that the connections will stay waterproof and have good connectivity. The tubes also keep the connection steady, which is so important in Florida. If a contractor uses wire nuts or clamp type connections, the integrity of the landscape lighting system will be compromised as the life span is shortened considerably.
"We have been using Bob at Elegant Custom Images for years. We could not be any happier with the quality and service from them. A big part is that we had lights installed 4 years ago and if a bulb blows he's there within days to fix. Give them a call. You will be glad that you did!"
