Outdoor Lighting For Commercial Buildings

At Greatscapes by R&R Landscaping, Inc., we not only install outdoor lighting for residential properties, we also install for commercial properties.  Your place of business is a reflection of who you are and what you represent.  By adding outdoor lighting, it not only shows you care about the appearance of your building, but also that you care about your employees and client’s safety. 

There are many ways that you can ensure everyone will make it in and out of your building safely.  Make sure stairways are well lit by installing multiple niche lights or lip lights to the risers of all of the stairs.  Another option would be to add path lights at each side of the entryway if stairs are not involved.

Whether your building is small or large, wash lights and bullet modulus lights are a great choice for lighting up the side of any building.  Wash lights come in multiple watt settings (2.5-10) and throw a wider light.  Modulus bullet lights are commercial grade lighting fixture capable of throwing a maximum of 27 watts of light and have a directional light of up to 55 degrees wide.

Let Greatscapes by R&R Inc. visit your commercial property and demonstrate what outdoor lighting can do for your place of business.


When it comes to outdoor lighting, Greatscapes by R&R Landscaping, Inc. wanted to use a product that was not only beautiful but also one that would perform at its best, even while being exposed to all outdoor elements.  Coastal Source products were designed to withstand multiple climates.  Such as; ocean salt, harsh heat and humidity, snow and ice, irrigation systems, and pesticides.

All Coastal Source products that we install are made from one hundred percent brass, down to the nuts and bolts.  All cabling is direct burial, has 5 layers of protection and is waterproof (IP 68 certified).  All landscape lighting fixtures use low wattage LED lights to save energy and keep costs down for you, the homeowner.

Once installed, Coastal Source lights are very easy to maintain, requiring bi-yearly maintenance and cleaning from Greatscapes by R&R Landscaping, Inc.  Also, the “plug and play” cabling system makes it uncomplicated to add fixtures in the future. 

Now that you know more about why we use Coastal Source products, contact us today to set up an appointment for a live demo at your home.

Outdoor Lighting Accessories


Greatscapes by R&R Landscaping is a certified Coastal Source dealer.  We get excited about outdoor lighting accessories.

Coastal Source outdoor lighting fixtures can be adapted by using multiple accessories.  If we need to make a fixture taller, we would use a riser.  The risers come in several lengths ranging from 2”-72”.  This is a great option when you want a fixture to grow with your garden. 

Removable tip stakes are included with all “flex” series bullet lights or path lights.  These stakes come in two sizes (8” or 12”) and are used to firmly place the fixtures into the ground.  Speed stakes have multiple metal stakes attached onto a flush mount and are made to be inserted quickly into the ground.  Speed stakes allow us to quickly set up a demo at your home.

We use flush mounts when a fixture needs to attach to anything but the ground.  For example, installing a wash light into the wood above the garage door.   The flush mount allows lighting to be installed in places where you could not use a stake.  Surface mounts also allow us to also install a fixture in places where you cannot use a stake.

Theft guards are industrial strength discs that stabilize your fixture and prevent theft. The discs get attached to the stakes and buried into the ground.  The theft guards provide an additional 100 pounds lift resistance for extra protection against thieves.

We could also customize your outdoor lighting by adding colored lenses or using 15-degree angle lenses instead of 30- or 55-degrees lenses.  If you are looking to install new fixtures or are just looking to add accessories to your existing landscape lighting, Greatscapes by R&R Landscaping, Inc. will meet with you and review all of your options.  Call us today for an appointment.

Go Green At Home

  • Coastal Source outdoor lighting fixtures are 100% brass.  No plastic!
  • Brass fixtures will last a lifetime.  Plastic fixtures will be heading to the dump in a few years. 
  • Coastal Source outdoor lighting fixtures use extremely energy efficient low voltage LED bulbs.
  • Low wattage LED lamps produce very little heat.

People have different needs when it comes to adding outdoor lighting to their property.  Some of the more common needs are:

  • Safety and security.  This reason is one of the most important ones.  When you have outdoor lighting installed on your property, you are creating an environment where your friends and family can feel secure when walking in your yard.  By adding path lights on a walkway and a wash light above your driveway, you will ensure everyone will be safe when they visit your home.
  • Displaying landscape or hardscape after dark.  Continue to flaunt your beautiful yard, even into the night.  With strategically placed bullet lights and/or path lights in your flower beds, you can display all of your gorgeous gardens for everyone to see.  You can also use bullet lights to up light statues or architectural features and highlight interesting and intricate details.
  • Night time entertaining.  Why should the party end when the sun sets?  It doesn’t have to when you have outdoor lighting.  By installing niche lights around a patio or deck space, you can create a gathering place for friends and family to enjoy.  Down lighting a gazebo or pergola using niche bullet lights or nose lights also produces an additional area for entertaining your guests. 

These are only a few examples of how you can incorporate outdoor lighting into your landscape.  Contact Greatscapes by R&R Landscaping, Inc. to learn more about the endless possibilities outdoor lighting has to offer.

When it comes to outdoor uplighting, there are several types of applications that can be done.  Listed below are a few examples of how Greatscapes by R&R Landscaping uses Coastal Source uplighting products to transform the whole look of your outdoor space.

  • Bullet lights, while using two or three, can be used to showcase the beautiful details of your Japanese Maple or any other type of specimen tree.
  • Well lights are perfect for uplighting a flagpole or column.
  • Niche lights and bullet lights can be used to highlight any architectural structure, in example, a statue or an urn.
  • Bullet lights are great for uplighting your doorway.  Place one on each side of the entryway to ensure safety when arriving to your home at night.
