Uplighting

If a canopy of branches covers your garden, try this technique, place recessed garden and outdoor lighting luminaires in the ground and angle the lamp upwards. The illuminated branches or architecture will provide an interesting point of visual interest and reflect a soft light onto your garden and patio.

Successfully utilizing up lights in a landscape lighting system design can add a tremendous amount of texture, contrast and interest. FX provides a highly efficiency LED up light for virtually any outdoor application or effect. Find yours below.

AACM Annual HOPE Golf Tournament

AACM Annual HOPE Golf Tournament

On April 11th, 2014, Arizona Association of Community Managers hosted its annual HOPE golf tournament. This event is one in which ILD very much enjoys participating in as a sponsor because it not only helps to raise money for a good cause but also allows us to get out of the office, enjoys Arizona’s beautiful weather and watch some golf.

The HOPE (Homeowner Outreach Program Enterprise) Grant was established by the AACM to provide support for home owners and communities that are facing financial hardships. This has allowed countless communities to bounce back and assisted home owners who have gone through health issues or times of absences while serving our country, while helping to create a strong bond between the home owners, community leader and board members.

As a member of the AACM, ILD was able to sponsor one of the competition holes. This year we were on the long distance contest hole, which awarded a prize to the male and female who was able to hit the longest drive at King Hole 1, a par 5 hole. Being able to participate in this event not only allowed ILD to get involved with a great cause but also gives us the opportunity to inform many of the participants about lighting systems, LED lighting and the benefits that home owners and businesses can derive from our services.
