Garden Lighting Design: Patricia Castle in Cheviot Hills, CA - Sonic Electric

Our dear friend Mozie visited our store yesterday to inquire about landscape lighting for his home. He has a 3-story castle-style abode infused with tons of greenery, white/grey brick walls, architectural accents, white roses and vines. 

So how did we hook him up?

Westgate LF3-30 30W LED Flood Light - Qty. 10

By now you must have figured we're obsessed with Westgate's 30W LED Flood Lights. These are the same lights we installed recently to our storefront. These bad boys are small, stylish in the white finish and pack a punch of light. With these lights Mozie can now appreciate his beautiful architecture and illuminate the vines going up his white/grey brick walls. With this light he will also be able to highlight some of his homes beautiful features like his circular foyer and crown molding.

Westgate 6W LED Garden Light Fixture - Qty. 30

These 6W LED garden fixtures are perfect to light up shrubs, small trees, pots of roses and other greenery. Mozie will be using these to bring security to his front/backyard. Most notably to shine light on pathways, his rose garden and to give life to his medium sized greenery at night time. They might have a low wattage, but rest assured you are getting a lot of shine for your buck.

We agree that these might not be the most stylish garden light, but sometimes you need to give up style for substance. The LED technology in these fixtures are something else.
