Services

Curb Appeal Homes

Your first vision when returning home is your front yard. It’s the area you see the most and that others see first. At night, the darkness masks the beauty of your home and threatens its security. By carefully accentuating its best features and engulfing less desirable areas in shadows, lighting can greatly enhance the appearance and safety of your property at night.

Pools

Many homes have a magnificent pool, but the daytime oasis can become dangerous and sometimes even spooky at night without the proper landscape lighting. Too often clients rely on coach lights, lanterns, and ugly security lights that fail to provide the beautiful aesthetic effect while attracting bugs. By illuminating your pool and its surroundings, we create a sense of safety and security that exceeds the homeowners’ expectations.

Decks

Due to their inherent construction, existing lighting often cannot provide the ambiance needed to enjoy your deck in the evening hours. Carefully placed fixtures in discrete locations will subtly provide the desired mood. We often mount lights on the deck’s fence or rails, illuminating the space while defining its boundaries. Wires are masked by custom strips selected to match the deck’s finish.

Pathways

Perhaps the simplest form of lighting we provide, pathway lighting can softly illuminate any driveway, pathway, or receding area. We have thousands of fixtures available, most of which can be obtained within a week’s time.

Moon Lighting

At Jeff Mitchell Lighting we have improved and perfected many of our industry’s techniques, but we are perhaps most noted for our approach to moon lighting or more commonly known as down lighting. The process, easier to demonstrate than describe, is portrayed in several photos in our portfolio that show lights mounted between 70 and 80 feet high in the trees – from the ground up. We are able to achieve this effect by literally climbing up into the trees to install and maintain the lights. At these heights, the fixtures create a unique glow, bathing areas in light which could simply not be illuminated in any other fashion. The challenges of this technique demand specific materials, including fixtures that attach the lights to the trees, stainless steel screws, and specially designed brackets. If the lights are not maintained they will eventually be shed off as the tree grows.

Holiday Lighting

’Tis the season to be well-lit. In addition to architectural and landscape lighting, we also offer a holiday lighting service to decorate your home. We offer a variety of choices, all custom-designed to the homeowners’ preferences.

Projects

The traditional customers of Jeff Mitchell Lighting have already purchased a lighting system from another contractor who usually specialized in either lighting, irrigation, or landscape services. Eighty percent of the systems we replace are less than five years old and never provided the effect or liability desired by the customer. Most of the time these systems were designed incorrectly using materials of dubious quality. For example, the chosen transformer did not provide the requisite power that the system needed to be effective.


Did you know?

We refrain from using machines of any sort in your yard – all trenching is completed by hand. When lights are installed in the front of your home, we place our shovel directly in front of the foundation to trench and later install the fixture wires. This procedure reduces the likelihood of future damage to the cable.

Appointment Information

Our first appointment of the day is at 9 AM and our last is at 7 PM, 7 days a week. It’s always best to schedule appointments during daylight hours whenever possible.

Please keep in mind that if there are two homeowners, it is essential that we meet both during our first visit as there are many things to learn, discuss, and decide. During the lighting consultation we will concisely educate you on all the available lighting techniques and equipment. We bring a large display case that illustrates many of the most popular fixtures and finishes that we offer, giving you the opportunity to see the premium quality of our equipment firsthand. Given that two properties are rarely identical, we can work together to customize a lighting system to satisfy your needs. We have many photographs in addition to the portfolio shown on our website which will likely illustrate a lighting solution for your home. During this appointment, which typically lasts one hour, we will present you with a written proposal composed in clear and concise terms.
