Richmond, VA Summer Nights and High-End Outdoor Lighting

Enjoy the Upcoming Summer Nights in the Backyard with the help of Richmond’s Top rated High-End Outdoor Lighting Service!

Space Enjoyment

Fourth of July is almost here and it’s time for a renewal and enjoying ones home life with friends and family. Our outside world is sometimes neglected or not thought of as a place for outside rooms. Try to imagine each island of trees and landscaping that would compliment a bench or some chairs. Imagine hanging out and having a glass of wine or tea in the evening with a dimly lit glow.

Combine your trees with mulch , perennials, flowers and professional landscape lighting designs and you will have these grand outside rooms!  Lighting takes the dark away and creates beauty never seen in your trees, shrubbery, and plantings.  Just imagine each limb and branch moving with the wind is now highlighted by outdoor lighting in your new outside rooms.

How much fun would it be to share with your children and grandchildren, during those summer nights with outdoor lighting? Professional landscape lighting designs can make your property come alive, night after night!


Our Methodology

Whether during the summer nights or year-round, each tree can be sized up for the proper light spread, color or heat of the bulb, and wattage.  Generally, taller trees and items of interest require 5 watts, 2700 warm bulbs with 38-degree light spread to properly illuminate your backyard.

Small trees and shrubbery that is lower and spread out require a bulb with a 60-degree spread.  This creates a wide warm feeling that will highlight each leaf, bloom, and light up any pathway.  Baylites Landscape Lighting Designs specializes in the design and placement of each lighting fixture for a professional look that will last trouble-free for years to come!


What We Recommend

We recommends solid brass lighting fixtures that have a 10 year to lifetime warranty and transformers with a lifetime warranty from the manufacturer.  High-end LED bulb manufactures state their bulbs will last 42,000-48,000 hours or 21-25 years if used around 5 hours each night.  All equipment used should be high-end lighting components that last year after year, trouble free. Professional landscape lighting designs should have maintenance plans.

When adding these outside rooms through landscaping, mulch, plantings, lighting, always consider some sort of water features to bring all this together.  Imagine, your new outside rooms, with seating, landscape lighting, and the wonderful sound of running water.  What a grand setting for your family and year-long enjoyment!

A Focus on Homeowner Safety

Blog: A Focus on Homeowner Safety

Safety and tranquility is always on the mind of Lewis “Ray” Edgell and has been for the majority of his professional life, and even more so since his retirement from the United States Marshal Service where he served as 1811 Criminal Investigator Senior Inspector with Judicial Security Division headquarter for 32 years. Ray, who resides in the Northern Neck in Wicomico Church on Cranes Creek and Richmond, has taken the elements of personal safety, security, and the beauty of nature and combined them with his expertise in outdoor lighting and landscaping design and brought them to an entirely new level.

Since 2006, Ray has been providing homeowners in the Northern Neck, the Middle Peninsula, Tidewater and Richmond areas with residential lighting, not just for their home, but for their home’s surroundings. “Homeowners often tend to think of lighting from just one perspective–to light their way or to deter potential intruders or criminals” says Edgell. Consider taking a step further to where your security and safety becomes a whole new venue of personal entertainment allowing you to enjoy nature at its most glorious.

Using the proper lighting fixtures, a homeowner can transform their gardens, ponds, trees, docks and piers into a literal wonderland! “Lighting can be used to soften your environment. Gone are the days where harsh outdoor lighting detracts from a home and yard’s beauty. By using LED low voltage soft lighting, the homeowner can enhance there outside world at night at an operating cost of only pennies a night said Mr. Edgell.

Mr. Edgell explains that “the lighting fixtures I use in my business are subtle and unobtrusive. Imagine having your tree canopies appear as if they are lit by the moon. Or viewing your flowering gardens during the night. Or perhaps spending time observing the creatures who live under water at night. The peacefulness that this environment gives you enhances the magnificence of nature. I have customers who tell me that they are so mesmerized by what they see that it is difficult to tear themselves away and get back to the mundane tasks of daily living. Truly, the key to professional lighting is not just the lighting fixture itself, but the benefit of serenity and tranquility that the homeowner has by the overall beauty that the appropriate outdoor lighting can produce. And add to that, personal safety and security, and you have the best of both worlds.”

Mr. Edgell attends on average 42 hours of Continuing Education courses a year that are sponsored by the National Garden Club, Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden, among others. He meticulously educates himself on the latest lighting technology. He also works with customers designing home security, safety and protection plans. While not engaged in business affairs, Mr. Edgell volunteers at Wicomico Parish, Woodlake Methodist Churches, Wounded Warriors Project, Rappahannock Art League, Steamboat Museum, Reedville Fisherman’s Museum, Morrattico Waterman’s Museum, and Blue Knights Motorcycle Organization.

Baylites is a Professional Outside Lighting and Landscaping Design Company whose primary purpose is providing beautiful, quality lighting and landscaping design at a very competitive price. Mr. Edgell invites you to visit the Baylites website, — seeing is believing.
