Monello Landscape Industries Wins Two NJLCA Landscape Achievement Awards
Monello Landscape Industries, located in Wayne, New Jersey has won first prize, the Award of Excellence, in the NJLCA’s Residential Landscape Design/Build: Landscape Lighting category for the Wayne Lighting Project.
Monello Landscape converted this outdated lighting system into a state of the art, LED lighting show room. The products were all Coastal Source, and included 70+ bullet lights, 40+ path lights, 25+ tiki torch lights, 90+ wash lights, 40+ lip lights and six transformers to illuminate this backyard paradise. In addition, there are LED multi-color strips illuminating the bar area, as well as the veneer water-wall into the pool. All of the LED lights have the ability to be controlled by an app on the homeowner’s phone. This backyard paradise could not have been possible without the lighting system showcasing every feature, from the waterfalls to the plantings.
The blue lenses and bullet lights were particularly hard to place in the rocks around the waterfall to both hide the lights from being visible to the eye, but to also properly illuminate the falling water. All of the LED strip lighting was soldered for a better connection, and wire harnesses were created for more stability. All of the tiki torch LED lights were core drilled into the outdoor kitchen bar top.
