here is one idea I have for the house I did an estimate on today.

Will make a few other ides on here and post them. The light below the gutters are snowflakes but when you shrink them down it is hard to tell.

What up Dunn? I think if it work for the client, then that all that matters. However, when biding remember your lighting their home to compliment it. Clean straight lines. (C-7's or C-9's) Would looking great! Maybe outline the windows with clear mini's. Stake light along the driveway. The wreath works! And branch wrap the small tree's with mini lights. Are the red bow's going to be lit?

I'm assuming those are starbursts on the little trees? Way too big for a tree that little. I agree, minis up and down the branches.

Yeah they are starbursts and they won't be that big but if I made them any smaller with the program they would have came out blobs of light like the snowflakes on the house.
Also the bows will be lit and kind of are in the pics. I think the second design looks a little better.

Yes I was think of stake lights along the driveway as well. Just unsure what lights because c-9's would be like 3,900 dollars with the pricing I am using now for the c-9's. I am think making it lower because thye are on the ground. The drive way is easily 200 yards long.

I wish I could make the pictures come out better so that they could see how the lights should look.

Where do you all get Net lights from for bushes. We are using Holiday Bright Lights and they don't have net lights I don't believe. Or does everyone just string single strands?

Oh yeah if you where to run stake lights along the driveway say with C-9 bulbs where do you get the stakes at?

Thanks again for all who reply.

Dunn's- On the c-9's on the ground. I use the stake lights from Action lighting on driveways and walks, I price those out at 2.50 per foot 1st year, 1.25 per foot 2nd year. they have nice 18" high candle stick type stakes, wire is on ground and not up in air, and spaced every 24 or 36" I believe. Landscaper pro should have the Brite Ideas Linkables available if you purchased the software to make the house look nicer for clients.
