Do You Want To See Your Lights From Space?

November 14, 2019 | By Matt Cook

Here are a few of our favorite movie clips for Holiday Lighting. Enjoy!

It’s That Time of Year Again!

You pull down the attic stairs and search in the deep recesses of your garage looking for last years lights. Only to find them wadded up in a pile from last year. Two hours later you have the lights unrolled and ready to go.

Now you are ready to install the lights!

You place your ladder precariously high above the sidewalk as you inch across the front of your house installing the lights. Hoping that no one is taking pictures of you and uploading them onto the OSHA Fail Site!

Four hours later you sit back and enjoy the fruits of your labor. All the while wondering what other things you could have done that would have been a better use of your time. Then after the holidays pass and you think “I should take down my lights.”

Months pass by and pretty soon March rolls around and it dawns on you that you have not taken down last year’s lights. Aren’t you tired of being the one that leaves their lights up well after January?

If any of this sounds familiar than you should give us a call and let us do the risky work of climbing on the roof. Read on for a few design tips and things to consider.

Size Matters

The C9’s are a full inch longer. This creates more light and a brighter presence from the street.

It’s cheaper for someone to install the C7’s but a real pro will use C9’s. The C9’s have a bigger impact.

By going with the larger bulb your lights will appear brighter and noticeably different from the street.


What is the best color to choose? Typically if you ask your kids they will almost always say they want multicolored lights. Most adults prefer solid colors.

This is not always the case but often I find that to be true. Keep is simple and elegant. I like to go with all one color or an alternating pattern such as a Candy Cane Pattern of Bright White and Red.

The “old school” lights from our childhood have a golden color to them that we call “Warm White”. The “Cool White” has a blue tint, while the “Bright White” is a described. The most common choices for Holiday lighting  can be a Warm White, or a Bright White. You will just need to pick the temperature you prefer.

Power Savings

Before my career in Landscape Design, I would have my students take an inventory of the of the types of light bulbs in their house. I would then have them preform a calculation to determine how much electricity each bulb would use over the course of a year. As you can imagine the savings you gain by changing out all of your light bulbs to LED is staggering.

Once you do this side by side comparison you will have no doubt that LED bulbs are worth every penny. If you have not ever looked at the power requirements between the two bulbs it is worth your time and effort. Take a look at the link below if you really want to geek out on it.

We won’t tell anyone.

LED vs Regular Lightbulbs

LED’s sip electricity instead of guzzling power the way your dads truck guzzled gas.  Let’s face it this is an expensive time of year. Why not save a little bit on your electricity usage? See link for more detailed information on the cost comparison.
