The look of Monument Signage is important to every development. In this case, Skyline Park on Refugio Road wanted to change out their Natural Gas Lights above their monument sign to Solar Lights. Solar lighting has come a long way but there are still limitations. These lights were bright enough but the preference would have been for larger Solar Lights. Larger solar lights were not available except for the modern parking lot variety. You can see how bad these Solar lights look mounted to the existing wood posts. The Solar lights were too small to mount them directly on the large brick base. However, By placing cut stone on top of the base with a larger stone on the bottom, then a smaller stone on top, it visually looked better because the Solar lights were more in line with the size of the top stone.
