Landscape Lighting in Bellevue
Bellevue, a french term meaning “Beautiful View” is known as a “city within a park” with an environmental strategic plan that has been under development since 2013. The overarching goal is to preserve and enhance the environmental assets and beauty of the city for the future.
Bellevue is home to the horticultural gem, Bellevue Botanical Gardens, that boasts more than 52 acres of manicured gardens, woodland restoration and natural wetlands. During the holiday season, you will find the horticulture finery illuminated to enjoy on the dark winter nights. Throughout Bellevue, you will find many beautiful personal gardens in the many diverse areas of the city. Landscape lighting can provide an opportunity to enjoy the outdoors at any time of the year.
Outdoor Lighting in Bellevue Area
Each year, a panel of judges from the Washington Association of Landscape Professionals (WALP) recognizes the finest landscaping projects in the area with a series of merit awards. The purpose of the program is to recognize outstanding performance by WALP members and foster personal and company pride in superior workmanship. This Medina landscape lighting project earned the Grand Award for Lighting, meaning experts in the field agree that there was “little to no room for improvement” on this project.
We are so honored to receive this award as only (7) Grand awards were given out for the entire state. Congratulations to Joe Bittler for the design and management. The installation team of Chris Keech and Raymond Fenton put together an amazing finished product.
For this Medina patio, we used 4 lighting techniques to create a new room. Trellis lights or downlights in the trellis provide a warm wash of light over the stone patio. Wall washing provides highlights on a beautiful stone walls. Path lights not only highlight the edge of the patio, but adds visual interest on the fern plantings and spotlight on the taller trees, providing structural and vertical points of beauty and interest.
Stylish path lights highlight both the sword ferns but also throw nice shadows on the stone patio.
Medina Outdoor Lighting – Trellis & Tree
For this beautiful Medina yard, we were tasked with illuminating tall trees and a walkway trellis.
- Trellis light shining straight down highlights a transition point in the yard. Adding a path light provides nice foot lighting (safety lighting) as the path ends into the lawn.
- Uplighting into the trees gives ambient light on the teahouse. Light is reaching 40’ into the tree. Single downlight in the tree on the tree swing make the swing come alive in the night!
- Combining path lighting and uplighting on the large fir, as well as a single down light, this lighting design gives an overall warm lighting event in the yard.
“Joe, Chris, and Raymond were very professional and responsive. We are extremely satisfied with their outdoor lighting installation and they did an excellent job. Our home looks fantastic!”
