( — February 9, 2018) — Atlanta, Marietta, Alpharetta, Roswell and Sandy Springs Georgia Voters have chosen Southern Landscape Lighting Systems as the best Outdoor Landscape Lighting company in the 2017 Consumers’ Choice Award and

The Southern Landscape Lighting Systems team designs and installs custom outdoor lighting to accentuate features of the home, landscaping, subdivision entrance, or business. They offer the highest quality products, professional design, installation and continuing service support for local customers living in the Marietta, Alpharetta and surrounding communities.

It’s important to note that Southern Landscape Lighting Systems will not only design a quality landscape and security lighting system, but will also install it with trained and certified technicians. Using meticulous installation techniques that match the workmanship of the brands of lighting fixtures they offer, they take pride in producing outdoor living spaces that are transformed with quality outdoor LED lighting, accents and security lighting. One of the greatest factors that contributed to being the 2017 Consumers Choice Award recipient is their “commitment to delivering a 5-star experience for each customer they serve no matter how large or small the job may be,” said Lindsey Barnhill, co-owner of Southern Landscape Lighting Systems.

Southern Landscape Lighting Systems offers complimentary day-time consultation where they come out in person to home or business to discuss options for illuminating the areas a customer wants to highlight and secure. They also answer any and all questions about types of products, materials, LED versus halogen during the consultation. They also provide customers with the number of fixtures, types of fixtures to be installed, and the price for installation.

For those customers who are ready to move forward immediately with a project, the Southern Landscape Lighting Systems team can come out to your home or business and provide a live demonstration of the outdoor and landscape lighting opportunities for both aesthetics and greatly enhanced security. This process starts at dusk and usually takes between 2-3 hours of time. Since not every home or business is the same, this award-winning outdoor lighting experience is very helpful in assuring a customer can understand what the effect will look like.

A very typical question homeowners ask is, “do you have to be licensed to install or service a low voltage lighting system in the state of Georgia?” The answer is yes and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. This is in addition to having a business license and this type of license is an actual trade license that is required by law. If you are considering multiple quotes, ask to see the competition’s low voltage license before signing any contract (it will start with LV). This is extremely important for your safety. Many fires have started from faulty installations or fixtures and your insurance company may deny a claim if they find out you hired a non-licensed contractor. For more information, visit the State of Georgia’s Secretary of State website to review the law regarding this.

Another common question Marietta homeowners frequently ask is, “Does Southern Landscape Lighting Systems service existing systems?” The answer is yes but Southern only services and/or repairs professionally installed systems. DIY systems or any systems that utilize Lowe’s or Home Depot fixtures, are not able to be serviced.

Finally, a frequent question asked is what kind of maintenance is recommended on a system? Because these systems are outside, they do require some amount of TLC each year. Even with LED fixtures. Mineral deposits build up on the lenses, landscapers knock lights out of alignment, plant material grows, and bulbs can burn out. This is an important component in ensuring your system does last a lifetime. Southern Landscape Lighting Systems provides a high-degree of expertise and professionalism in every job with every customer.
