Lighting Around Landscapes 

Every business requires a unique parking lot design to accommodate their needs, designing the lighting around unique landscape features and drawing attention to the business in a way that improves the customer experience. By taking into consideration the natural shapes and elevations of the surrounding landscape, we can design a parking lot lighting system that encourages feelings of security and the ability to maintain high visibility. Even as natural landscaping slopes into low-lying hills, or towers over the parking lot, your business doesn’t need to be overshadowed. By providing feels of a safe enclosure with clear traffic and pedestrian markings, we can work with you to create a parking lot that keeps your customers happy and improves overall security.

Parking Lot Color Considerations 

The color of your parking lot lighting can also lend itself to how safe customers feel, as well as their perceptions of your business. In the initial lighting design, it’s important to take into consideration the ambient lighting of the business’ surrounding parking lots on overcast or clear nights.

It’s essential that your lighting poles and other light sources accommodate these ambient colors, as well as the lighting coming from your business. You don’t want the exterior lighting from the business to compete with the parking lot lighting. At Douglas Electric, we are experienced in minimizing color distortions as well as compensating for the ambient lighting of other developments, providing crisp and clear parking lots for your employees and customers.

Maintaining & Repairing Parking Lot Lighting 

An important part of installing parking lot lighting is ensuring the lights consistently turn on at their designated times or light-levels, and ensuring none of the bulbs burn out. Regular maintenance can help prevent these problems and keep lighting running 24/7, but not all problems can be addressed proactively. Sometimes, a light burns out or a light pole is damaged, making repair a necessary option.

At Douglas Electric, we offer 24/7 emergency repairs as well, keeping your parking lot lit with repairs whenever you need it. Our experienced technicians can replace all types of parking lot lighting and repair fixtures quickly so your business can return to normal operation.

All our work is done in-house, rather than outsourced to other technicians, keeping us in touch with what needs to happen and the latest advances in technology and repair work to ensure your lighting is brought back into even better shape than when we were called out onto the site.
