Moonscape Begins in St. Charles

Moonscape Landscape Illumination is a family business which began in St. Charles, Il nearly 30 years ago. We recently moved our operations to nearby Batavia as our company has grown and the business needed more room for expansion.

Anticipating Customer Wants

Over the years, we have installed thousands of outdoor lights to customers in St. Charles. Our clients have had many needs from downlighting, moonlighting, uplighting, outdoor lighting and yearly light repairs. When we first began, most of our lighting was uplighting (lights placed on the ground which face upward on your home or trees) and St. Charles landscape lighting. Our focus now is more on moonlight lighting (lights placed in your trees which point downward on your landscape mimicking the moonlight), though we still install other types of lighting projects.

In the early days, we used to use light bulbs. Those would need to be replaced and checked yearly to be sure they were working properly and not burnt out. Moonscape now solely uses LED lights which are brighter, whiter and last longer than other lights.

Below is an overview of our typical process when meeting a customer.

St. Charles Outdoor Lighting Process

We received a call to illuminate a new patio in a backyard for a customer in St. Charles. The back of their home only had two lighting fixtures outside the back door. The yard was dark and they wanted a little more light for safety for their children. We scheduled a free consultation on a day which was convenient for them.

When we first met, they asked to install twelve pathlights in the fresh landscape around their new patio. They asked for my ideas and were open to suggestions.

The Moonlight Effect

After surveying the surrounding landscape, I suggested the lighting technique known as “moonlighting”. Moonlighting is the mimic of natural moon light where the fixture is located overhead with the light shining down from above, creating a moonlit effect. A romantic feel is created by beautiful shadows and patterns through the branches and leaves of the tree.

With large trees around the new patio, I designed a Moonlight blueprint specific for their landscape. Instead of proposing twelve pathlights around the patio, I explained in my design, that a few moonlights installed high in the trees shining down would give more light than pathlights and would also create the subtle feeling of real moonlight shining down. They loved the idea and wanted us to begin as soon as possible.

With quite a bit of digging and tree climbing, we figured it would be a two day project. We began the project early on a Thursday morning. Our arborist arrived early Thursday, and started climbing trees as our electrician began digging and wiring. We finished our project around 4pm the same day.

Client is Amazed

As with most new projects, we came back after nightfall to make any necessary adjustments. We met with the client and once again went through my original design. They were amazed by the moonlight. With only a few fixtures high in the trees, the entire backyard was covered with our moonlight magic.
