Blue colored landscape lights - providing enough light

I live in a community in Florida.

Our HOA is considering changing our white landscaping lights (which also reflect on our fountains which have a black backdrop, as you can see, in the first picture on the attached website)to blue.

The fountains, when lit, are not very bright.

I was wondering how a professional might feel?

Thank you for your help.

ANSWER

Hi Linda,
I tried emailing you directly but it did not go through. Perhaps you typed in the wrong email address? If you'd like to correspond with me directly, please do so by my contact form.

I am not familiar with blue lights. Whenever I have done a lighting design, it's been with typical lighting, without specifying any colored lights. Since you mentioned that when the fountains are lit that they are not very bright, do you have information that blue lights will make it brighter? Perhaps the lighting design and fixtures need to be changed. Some lightitng fixtures provide more light than others. Also, some direct the light in a better way. Possibly there are not enough lights too.

Btw, I could not get to the photos you were referrring to.

Here is the name of someone you can contact who is a lighting professional. I have worked with him and he is very knowledgeable.

Here are some of his projects.

He had given me permission to place these photos of his on my site as additional lighting examples.

Good luck.

"Susan,  what a pleasure it was to work with you.  You made me feel like I was your only client - responding late at night and always so quickly!  Your design is amazing and we only hope we can do justice to it when we plant.  You have such fantastic ideas and you are so open to suggestions and changes.  Loved working with you - now if you could only come to Canada and plant it!!!"
