LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN
A good plan is as essential to successful landscaping as a blueprint is to building a house. The landscape plan is the best safeguard of your landscape investment, because it illustrates in detail what you are going to buy before the money is spent.
Blueline will design a landscape plan that is in harmony with your life style and will showcase the architecture of your home. We start with an in-depth, detailed interview to find out the main uses of the landscape and what you enjoy in your surroundings. Next, we take a complete site inventory and analysis to determine project opportunities and constraints. All these elements are then incorporated into a creative landscape plan that is the first step in turning your dreams into reality.

The details of landscape illumination are best left to the professionals. Blueline works directly with landscape lighting manufacturers and suppliers to ensure all lighting is installed not only for its intended effect, but also safely and correctly as well.
Whether you wish to orient visitors to your garden, bring out the texture of an interesting surface or plant, or simply highlight your unique water feature or sculpture, Blueline professionals have been trained to know which lighting techniques will best meet your needs. While most people light for effect, the added benefits of safety and security can also be obtained if done correctly. Lighting can be installed in conjunction with a new landscape project or to compliment your existing landscaping.
LED fixtures and bulbs have become the standard for today’s landscape lighting. Incandescent bulbs are now yesterday’s newspaper.
THE ADVANTAGES OF LED LIGHTING
- LED fixtures and bulbs are typically warrantied for 15 years, however they can last up tp twenty years, depending on time in use.
- LED bulbs use approximately 80% less energy than incandescent bulbs, which could result in thousands of dollars in savings.
- LED bulbs will produce a soft, warm, white light to a brilliant clear white light. You have options.
- LED bulbs do not produce heat, therefor they do not attract some flying insects.
- We install state-of-the-art transformers that include a limited lifetime warranty.
