Love this fixture by @inlitedesign. This is a 4.5 watt Nero fixture used on a large flag pole. Super easy to install and very clean. #landscapelighting #wedolighting #flagpole #hireaprofessional #lighting #centralcoast #805 #arroyogrande hats done by @leftcoasttshirtco @jason_faist #led #inground #howdoyoulikethemapples #electrical #workflow #poorboy

This is my third set of @redwingshoes. These are the 606 with tough toe. I was able to get over 3 years of use out of this set. Super happy with these boots.

A few more images from our large shell beach landscape job. Each plant is unique in how it reflects or absorbs the light. The large agave plant is our favorite.

Almost wrapped up with this incredible landscape lighting project in shell beach, ca. It has been an honor and a privilege to be a part of. I could not have done it with out @inlitedesign @jason_faist with an extra special thank you to @pismo_robo for always having my back. From the original rendering back in December to the final light. It has been an amazing journey. #ihavethebestclients #landscapelighting #palmtrees #lightupyourworld #ilovelighting #ilovemyjob #shellbeach #sanluisobispo #centralcoast #805sparky #poorboy #poorboyelectric #hireaprofessional #howdoyoulikethemapples #impressive #wow #killinit #wegood #treelighting #giveusacall #massive #ledlighting #upgraded
