08 Jan Successful Landscape Lighting Projects Require Solid Relationships
A Matter of Trust
By Mike Gambino
No matter what the scale or shape of your landscape lighting project, from a small front yard to a whole-property, it requires the same key ingredient to be a success – trust.
One can view youtube video after you tube video on landscape lighting and get the feeling they could tackle a project on their own but the truth is competence and expertise is not achieved by watching videos on the internet or anywhere else. Expertise and competence only come from years of experience and repetition of acquired skills over and over until the system is honed and perfected.
Homeowners should develop a relationship with a landscape lighting designer/installer they can trust. As much as we emphasize clear and complete communication with our clients, there’s simply no way that we or any other lighter can educate the client about everything that will come up during the course of a landscape lighting construction project.
Ultimately, for more than 25 years we worked to build bridges of trust with our clients so that we and our team can do the job that they so diligently selected us for. It all comes down to trust.
Our level of expertise and our dedication to client service has given us a devoted following. Landscape lighting is often more complicated than most construction projects at the home because it not only involves a good and creative design but selection of the best materials and an expert technical installation to make the job a success.
That’s why it’s important to select a specialized landscape lighting company with a lot of diversified experience that is also willing to take the time to get to know you and understand your needs, wants, preferences and goals for the project. When we start a project, everyone on our team looks at it as if it were their own property. That is not only apparent in the respect for the plants and trees and other amenities in the yard by working carefully around them but in the shared unified goal to end up with the best end result for the client.
Sometimes unpredictable issues may occur during work and an open line of communication must be established with the client to keep them open to all of their options.
We always try to be open to achieving the best result for our clients. We develop a detailed plan going into the project, yet we are always open to change to give homeowners exactly what they want. The results are well worth the extra effort, after all clients will be viewing if not physically using that space 12 months out of the year. Clients appreciate the honesty and view it is a pleasure to have someone they can count on, and know that they will not be disappointed
Successful landscape lighting systems don’t happen by chance.
Gambino landscape lighting has a full complement of people working hand in hand to create a seamless outcome. In a very unusual and unique way not found with any other service provider, owner operator Mike Gambino is on-site project supervisor responsible for construction and material scheduling and quality control who carefully oversees every detail to keep projects on course. We also have great long-term relationships with our trade partners who manufacture and supply the proprietary products we have specially designed for use in our systems. Other important members of the team work together very well, and we have exceptional communication with them. We take a team approach that enables us to give clients an end product they will enjoy for many years to come. That team approach is appreciated by clients. We are very detail-oriented craftsmen, and with Company owner as supervisor constantly on the job site is also great for keeping in communication with homeowners.
It is very important to have someone you can trust, and our goal is to leave a lasting impression.
Most Gambino landscape lighting clients will agree that we just have wonderful service and wouldn’t have anyone else do any lighting work on their property.
