Four representatives from Lighting Associates (Mark Myers, Blake Myers, Brandi Velasquez, Brett Donnelly) took several Houston-based lighting designers and landscape architects to visit Hess America in Spartanburg, SC this weekend. The factory visit included a brief tour of the production facility and then focused on the world-famous Hess Light Garden behind the factory. A truly unique experience, the Hess Light Garden is a professionally designed and produced 5-acre hardscape featuring every Hess fixture, pole and site furnishing. With music playing in the background, drinks are served and specifiers simply walk around at their own pace viewing the products and enjoying the ambiance that is created by the beautiful Hess America products.
The trip also included a VIP ZZ Top concert on the West Lawn of the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC. Staying at the Biltmore Inn on the 8,000 acre estate, we enjoyed the views and the roof-top tour of America’s most famous and largest home.
