Lighting the Landscape
Justin Menzies at Divine Design Outdoor Lighting did a fantastic job with my landscape lighting! To put this review in context, I am an extremely picky and meticulous person, to the point where I often drive tradespeople crazy! I am a constant micro manager and I watch over everything.
I had my landscaping done in the Spring, and I knew that lighting would be an important part of making the landscaping and my house pop. I called a few places based on some Google searches, and I came across Justin at Divine Design Outdoor Lighting. He was very friendly over the phone and he was able to come out to my house to review the scope of the project and to give me a basic design idea before the landscaping had begun. He came up with some really cool design ideas -- for example, lighting on my backyard fence posts, lighting embedded in a huge weeping birch tree at the front of my house. He gave me a range for pricing at that point, one on the lower end (if we went basic) and one on the higher end (if we went all out). He also mentioned that he wanted to come back and review the design when all the trees were planted, which would give us a better idea of how things would look. I had a good vibe, and so I decided to hire him. Justin was great because he then coordinated with my landscapers to ensure any necessary prep work to hide wires, etc. was done ahead of time.
Justin came back after the landscaping was finished, and we finalized our design and he installed all of the lighting. He did such clean work -- he hid wires when it seemed nearly impossible, and left everything as if nobody had even been there. This was important, because I am super picky and I am obsessed with a clean look. He even got up into my big birch tree to install the lighting. After everything was installed, Justin came out at night (fairly late this time of the year, which shows his dedication) to see how the lighting looks at night. He made some tweaks, and then came back the next day to make some further tweaks, and again came out at night again to make sure things looked perfect.
Justin takes such pride in his work and to make things perfect, which I really appreciate. Overall, I would HIGHLY recommend Divine Design Outdoor Lighting! You won't be disappointed.
