They gave us excellent, professional service from start to finish. The plans included as much or as little as we needed. They are very flexible. The designer was great and the finished product is beautiful!

Very responsive to initial inquiries and they were able to visit and put together an estimate promptly. Installation went very smoothly all work was completed on time and according to their estimate. Initially I would have preferred to be able to have a drawing or see a specific plan regarding placement/type of lights but in the end everything worked out well. They were also quick to make some adjustments to fixtures that I requested after installation was complete. Overall we were very happy with their service and quality of products.

Having worked with Darrin and his crew over a number of years, we were delighted with the quality of the design as well as the professional installation they provided. We were amazed what a difference the lighting made in our enjoyment of our home, whether snow was falling or our trees were fully decked out in the summer. Aside from the enhanced beauty, we also learned that the night time illumination of our home provided a great deal of added security, much to my wife's approval. Well worth the cost!
This year (2023 Christmas season), the crew did a really nice job on this tree. They've put the same lights on it since 2018, when it was considerably smaller, and as it grows, there is more territory to cover. This year: quite artistic! (Also in the picture - garlands on the porch post.)

There are a few different ways to light up trees. One way is to use outdoor tree lights, which are strings of small lights that wrap around the tree trunk. Another way is tree uplighting, which involves shining beams of light up towards the tree from below. Both of these methods can create a really beautiful effect.

There are a lot of different types of lights that your company could use, but LED lights are some of the best. LED lights have a ton of benefits compared to other types of lights. For one, they last longer and use less energy. They also create less heat, so they’re ideal for use in outdoor spaces.

Homeowners are constantly finding new ways to improve their property value while also making their home more functional and efficient. Some homeowners may think that adding landscape lights to their property is only for aesthetic purposes, but there are many benefits that come along with installing these lights. One of the main benefits is improvement to home security. By strategically placing landscape lights around your home, you can create a well-lit perimeter which will deter would-be intruders. Another benefit is an improved sense of safety for you and your family when walking around your property at night. Landscape lights can also help you by shining lights on areas where you typically need artificial lighting, such as walkways and driveways. In addition, landscape lights can add value to your home if you ever decide to sell it. Buyers are often attracted to properties that have been well-maintained, and the addition of landscape lights can show that you take pride in your home. With so many benefits, it’s no wonder that landscape lighting is becoming a popular choice for homeowners.

No. While solar lights are a great option for certain applications, they are not ideal for landscape lighting.

The main reason to install solar lights is to save energy and money. However, most solar lights are not very bright and do not last as long.

So if you are looking for security lighting or to light up a large area, solar lights are not the best option. Instead, you should consider installing low voltage or LED lights.

The average cost to install landscape lighting is around $4,000 to $6,000. However, the cost does vary depending on the size and scope of the project. Prices could be different, so your best bet is to schedule a consultation to get an accurate price for your project.

Some factors that can affect the price include the number of lights required, type of light fixtures, wiring and labor costs, and location of fixtures.

Landscape lighting can add beauty and security to your home, and it’s a great way to showcase your landscaping or garden at night. If you’re thinking about installing landscape lighting, be sure to consult with a professional who can help you design a system that fits your needs and budget.

Yes, installing outdoor lights can make your house safer. Professional security experts agree that exterior lighting is one of the most effective ways to deter criminals from targeting a home.

Outdoor lights provide extra visibility and illumination, making it easier for neighbors or passersby to spot any suspicious activity at night. They also alert you of any intruders entering your property more quickly than relying on audio cues alone.
