Landscape Lighting Design

WHY Landscape Lighting?

Before you meet with a Blue Sky Rain landscape lighting designer, you have two bits of homework.  First, to think about your landscape lighting design and what specific requests you have with regard to lighting your home or business.  Secondly, determine how much you wish to invest in your system and share that amount in the initial meeting.  Blue Sky Rain Landscape Lighting Designs start at $2,400.  Landscape lighting design is similar to indoor design and the project size can be small or  extremely large.  You will get more for you money if you have a budget in mind and let us know what that is.
