Outdoor Lighting – Angersteins

0

Outdoor lighting enhances the beauty of your property, makes your home safer and more secure, and increases the number of pleasurable hours you spend outdoors. And it is an investment that pays off handsomely in the value it adds to your home.

For added security, illuminate any side of the house that would otherwise be in shadow. To conserve energy, install a motion or heat-sensitive control that will switch on the light only if someone approaches that side of the house. An automatic timer can control a portion of your outdoor lights to turn off at a certain hour, while basic security lights can be left on through the night. Another proven safety measure is to use timers on interior lights to make your home look occupied when you’re away.

Dark-Sky Friendly Lighting Tip
In order to prevent unwanted glare from your outdoor lighting, use bulbs with reasonable illumination levels. You may also use full cut-off fixtures to direct the light down towards the ground, where it is needed, rather than being cast to the side or up towards the sky, where it is wasted.

INSIST ON THE BEST™
Angerstein’s is Delaware’s leading distributor of E. P. Henry™ Hardscaping™ products. E. P. Henry is the oldest family-owned and -operated manufacturer of unit concrete products in America and has long been committed to being the market leader in both consumer and commercial Hardscaping. E. P. Henry’s commitment goes beyond just having the highest quality materials and the broadest product offerings. The company also ensures that you get the best finished Hardscaping project. E. P. Henry is the leader in training professional Hardscaping contractors. Training sessions are held frequently at their facility throughout the year and the lessons go above and beyond industry certification standards. Each February, the company holds an annual Midatlantic Hardscaping Trade Show. Again, this event keeps their suppliers and Hardscaping professionals up-to-date on industry changes and provides continuing education to those in the field who work with their product. It is because of these standards of excellence that Angerstein’s has created a partnership with E. P. Henry.

Angerstein’s is E. P. Henry’s top Authorized Hardscaping Distributor in the state of Delaware. We have been selling E. P. Henry paving stones for over 18 years.  Because of this, our sales associates are well-versed in all things Hardscaping. Angerstein’s sales associates can walk you through your project from start to finish. They can provide you with ideas, show you beautiful product displays, assist with material calculations, accessories and the tools and equipment needed to complete your project. We even sell landscape lighting, grills and patio furniture to put on your patio after it’s completed!  Angerstein’s is a full-stocking distributor and can usually fill any order in just a few days.

Angerstein’s has two convenient locations in Delaware – in Wilmington, and close to the beaches, in Sussex County, in the town of Milton. You can pick up your paving stone order or we can deliver directly to you. Just like E. P. Henry, Angerstein’s is dedicated to educating our customers. We hold several paving stone “How To Install” seminars each year.

Please click here if you would like to be on our mailing lists for Angerstein’s events. Even if you do not plan to install your own patio, we recommend that you attend the seminar to learn more about the installation process.

Not a Do-It-Yourselfer? Angerstein’s can lead you in the right direction by recommending one of our Authorized Hardscaping Contractors. Authorized Hardscaping Contractors are independent contractors who are not industry certified, but they have also met the standards set by E. P. Henry to ensure the highest level of performance.

Specialty Hardscaping Products

Angerstein’s also carries a beautiful, high-end line of paving stones by Andes Collection. This line of unique marble and travertine pavers is imported from the Andes Mountains in Peru. Please call our sales associates for pricing and availability.

Once you’ve finished your paving stone project, it may still not be complete. By installing a PaverArt medallion or custom design, you will certainly distinguish yourself from your neighbor’s paving stone project. PaverArt designs are crafted from pigmented, concrete paving stones that are built to withstand the test of time. Certainly their beauty will be something you’ll love forever. Please call our store for more information.

In order to protect your paving stone or hardscaping project, many customers turn to Angerstein’s for care and maintenance products and tips. Angerstein’s carries a line of products by TechniSeal® that will help consumers protect their investment. TechniSeal manufactures premium products engineered to clean and protect interlocking pavers. Call Angerstein’s for more information about these excellent products.

Masters of Landscape Lighting – Bernie Granier, StarShine of Texas

Landscape Lighting Installation Tips & Tricks

 

Winning a lighting design award is a great achievement. Winning four awards in the same competition is outstanding! This is what Bernie Granier, of StarShine of Texas, did in the 2011 AOLP (Association of Outdoor Lighting Professionals)  annual outdoor lighting design competition.

Janet Moyer, the world-renowned landscape lighting designer, was among the judges.

She has been instrumental in helping the AOLP develop their training programs and attracting the natural talents of designers like Bernie.

Unlike many lighting firms, Bernie Granier (based near Houston, TX) is a master in finding the pe

rfect blend of architectural lighting and landscape lighting. The result is an exuberant nighttime experience  that embraces the totality of the property.

Exceptional architectural lighting, as shown here, requires an artistic eye and complete mastery of lighting tools.

Using only the best landscape lighting products (CAST among them), Bernie also takes care to ensure that the lights will survive the outdoor environment and continue to provide exceptional lighting year after year.

Our hats off to Bernie and StarShine of Texas for elevating the art of landscape lighting in the Lone Star State. Homeowners looking for exceptional lighting customized to their property, their homes, and their lives should contact Bernie. He’s a master of light and is fully capable of transforming your nighttime experience. We are proud to include Bernie among the CAST Lighting Masters of Landscape Lighting.
