Red Oak Design Featured in Irrigation & Green Industry Magazine

Red Oak Design and owner Kyle Adamson were part of a feature article about landscape lighting in the August issue of Irrigation & Green Industry, a trade publication for outdoor and landscape professionals. Int he article, “Landscape Lighting…The New Level”, Kyle talks about his passion for outdoor lighting and some of the projects that have garnered national acclaim for Kentucky’s own Red Oak Design.

Lighting designer Kyle Adamson started out as a landscape architect, working for several different companies before starting his own full-service landscape contracting business; Lexington, Kentucky-based Red Oak Design, LLC, in 2006.

“It just seemed like every year, I was doing more and more lighting. About three years ago, I switched over into doing lighting exclusively.”

“I loved landscape design, but lighting—I just can’t get enough of it. It was a little nerve-wracking to give up landscaping, but I’m excited and glad that I did,” Adamson said.

It’s paid off, not just in money but in recognition. Last year, he won the AOLP’s (Association of Outdoor Lighting Professionals) “Best Featured Specialty Landscape Project, 2013” for the Walker residence in Mt. Sterling, Kentucky.
