We have worked with Avalon Lighting over the past 8 years and they have performed their beautiful services on two different homes. Our latest home is spectacular and we were so excited to hear that it won an two different awards! We are so lucky to have met Mark and his team, as we thoroughly enjoy the use of our yard. In fact, we have had several friends over to enjoy are yard and they loved it so much, that a couple of them had their yards done by Avalon too. We can’t thank you enough–you are a true talent.
Wow… what a difference! We are so thrilled at what you have done for us and our entire family uses the yard all the time. The lighting system you gave us is outstanding and your customer service has been great—we love it! I love to sit out back and relax with a nice cigar and just stare at the various parts of our yard. It really is amazing on how much things have come to life now. Mark, we all want to thank you for your professionalism and excellent service. We will definitely tell our friends.
Barbara & I are so happy with the lighting job you did in our back yard. It’s like our yard has come to life! We are spending a lot more time outside, due to the incredible lighting you put in. Our yard has become a sort of ‘sanctuary’ for us. As you know, I am on the road a lot touring with various bands and when I get home I find myself spending much of my night hours outside. The lights you installed make the yard feel like another ‘room’ to our house—it’s such a great experience. Barbara was even inspired to put more outdoor furniture in the yard for this purpose. We are going to have several cookouts this Summer, and they will extend late into the evening thanks to your lighting. You are an artist! You’re the best!
I never imagined how powerful just the right illumination could be and I always thought that all landscape architects included the “right” amount of illumination in their plans. Unfortunately, I found out the hard way. So, when my beautifully designed side yard patio was completed, I looked forward to being able to entertain on it both day and night. You can imagine my dismay when I walked around the yard, the first night, only to encounter ground illumination blinding my next step. My yard is not flat, so I have to address the undulating flagstone & ground cover—this includes charming terraced multi-levels. Illumination is critical for the safety of my guests and any trip hazards are not a feature that I had intended to invest in. Thank God for the internet and for my finding Mark Carlson of Avalon Lighting Design. Mark came to rescue my project and he understood the problem immediately. He eliminated the glare by re positioning the lights high up into the trees and directed them downward, to softly illuminate the walkways. Magic! He directed ground lights into the flowerbeds, casting lacy romantic shadows against the garden wall. There were no longer any dark, treacherous areas or glaring blind spots. I only have the soft, magical, romantic glow that I envisioned when I first dreamed of making my own Secret Garden a reality. I work intensely all day long. What a peaceful, glorious refuse my garden has become… in my hammock, with a good book, cocooned in nature, bathed in soft light… 24 hours a day! Thank you Mark! I honestly can’t thank you enough for what your skill, understanding and creativity has done for me, my family and my friends!
