Things you realize when you get older..."old". All those times I was grounded growing up and had nothing to do but draw was actually job training. I remember sitting for hours drawing something, anything because I had gotten into trouble and was grounded. In those days, grounded meant no television, no outside, no fun; draw, color, and read were my only options. I usually would draw. Go figure, 40 years later, I'm blessed to be able to draw and color for a living while playing in the dirt.
When I'm not given a property plan from a landscape architect, architect, or builder, I have to hand draw the property to not only show the customer where the landscape lighting is going to be, but also to catalogue the different lights and their locations. I take great pride in these plans and spend countless hours trying to get it look like its' to scale. That's not too difficult on most properties, but I've done some very large multi-acres sites the last several years. These are just a few favorites of my hand drawn landscape lighting plans.
If I can assist you in your outdoor lighting project or if you have any questions regarding trends, lighting products, and expected pricing, please give me call or email.
