The trees look nice Ryan. Are you going to downlight the walkway and stairs from the trees?

Tim,
Looks very nice! How many lights did you put on the front? I am guessing 11? And some on the side?
Did they buy or are you giving them a few days?

14 on front. The color on the pic is terrible. They have a huge HPS streetlight just on the other side of the driveway plus a big 3 lamp post light in their front yard. Just a simple demo and I happened to have my camera with me. I have given up trying to guess whether the customer is going to buy anymore or not. I never believe I have a sale until the ink is dry on the contract.

I was plannin on it...They arent as noticeball once theyre installed, and the St Augustine grows up.

O and the guy is scared about down lighting, cuz he doesnt want the wires running up the trees. So thats going to be complicated...

Those uplights will look nice on those trees. A good brass, grass grate for the pars will do the trick nicely. A good downlight demo on the new stairs might change his mind.

When I get hesitation from clients about Treemounted downlighting it generally has to do with their fear that the wires running up the tree will be unsightly. So I just make them an assurance that if they can see the wire from the primary viewing angle, then they don't have to pay for that fixture. Sometimes I even offer that assurance from the primary and secondary viewing angle.

It goes a long way to re-assuring the client and you get to install the best design for the application.

Win Win.

and make sure they know you will maintain that wire so the tree does not grow over it.

Also I ensure clients I only use stainless hardware in trees and the mounts stand off the trees. Sometimes they have had a bad experience which caused damage to some special trees.

speaking of stainless I was buying some screws today at HD and man is their a price difference between them and lowes. at lowes it's like a $1 for 3 and and HD I got a box of 25 for 4.23 what the deal?

Brandon and others, you guys who buy your supplies at HD and Lowes really need to start shopping around more. You are business owners and as such can take advantage of wholesale suppliers! Why are you paying retail prices for your hardware, bits & pieces? I buy all of my stainless steel hardware, screws, etc. from a wholesale (to trades only) fastener supplier and pay about 30-40% less than HD. Sure you have to buy them in boxes of 100-200 pieces at at time, but you know you are going to use the stuff.

SS hanger bolts & nuts are a perfect example of this.

At lowes here the only stainless I buy is screws. Good price on them. about 2 bucks for a bag of 25 1.5" number 10 screws.

Come to think of it I have not bought many in some time because the unique tree lights I have been using come with all the hardware. Just wish they would include some black zip ties with the eye hole in em instead of the ugly white plastic straps. Hint hint Joey.

Well hammered out the details today, and got the down lighting approval. Should be installing within 2 weeks! If everything goes right with the pool builder...
