Our hope for customers of Enlightened Lighting

Lighting design is something that sets us apart. One thing we really focus on is listening: what your concerns are, what your desires are, and really what you're looking for in a lighting design.

We customize each design according to your tastes and your desires, with our input. And the things that most people will never see: the type of connections we use, the way and depth we bury our wires, the placement of the fixtures, the type of fixtures we use; everything we do, we do it with the idea this is the system we'd want installed in our own family member's house.

Elegant, Sturdy Landscape Lighting Fixtures

Thank you to our customer, Diane, for sharing her thoughts on our fixtures and landscape lighting design work!

🔹"Sturdy...elegant...matches our home."

🔹"When you think of the abuse [these fixtures have had from landscaping crews] over the years, they have really held up well."

🔹"The LED lights are crisper, I think it has such a warm ambience when you drive up to our home."

🔹"It's funny, when they came and did our lights, for about the first week, my husband and I, every night at about 10 o'clock we went for a walk and we would just walk up and down the road looking at our property and we were just so excited, it looked so pretty."

It is our privilege to create a warm and inviting ambience and highlight your property with our custom designs, top-of-the line landscape lighting fixtures, and skilled technicians and team members. Thanks to Diane and all of our customers for choosing Enlightened Lighting. We strive to deliver the best landscape lighting services in our region!

Time to play, morning or night, as long as you've got enough light!

Outdoor lighting isn't just for landscaping and architecture. Lighting is the perfect addition for your children's outdoor play area.

As the sun sets on whimsical spring and summer nights, often the kids are still playing and soaking up time outdoors. And if they're not, you're probably telling them to run outside and enjoy the fresh air!

Adding a little light on their favorite treehouse, fort, swing set, jungle gym, slide, or DIY obstacle course can create the perfect space to savor playtime and entertain friends well into the evening hours.

Is anyone else looking forward to warmer evenings and more time with their children unplugging and playing outdoors? 🙌

Architectural lighting is one of our specialties! We know the art and science behind accentuating unique masonry features of your home, so they stand out at nighttime.

Quoins can of course strengthen your home and provide much-needed weather protection, but homeowners enjoy the enhanced aesthetics created by the detailed patterns on the outside corners of their home. Illumination emphasizes the contrast in elements and highlights the unique workmanship of your house.

They say March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb, and we've illuminated everything from lions to lambs! 🦁🐑

This lion sculpture illumination project included a garden bed installation of our go-to Sterling Lighting, LLC brass path light. This light & lion combo are fierce among the ferns! 🌿💡

The lamb sculpture project was a design collaboration from the International Landscape Lighting Institute Fall 2018 Intensive Landscape Lighting Design Course, which our owner, Patrick Harders, participated in at The University of Oklahoma. Among the OU lighting designs, a sculpture of two sheep followed by a Navajo Indian woman carrying a lamb were illuminated, and Patrick's team illuminated the building and trees in the background. Gentle, yet brilliant lighting.

How to Get Your Lighting Project Approved by Your HOA

Are you looking to get landscape lighting but are wondering how to get the project approved by your neighborhood community board?

Here are 3 steps to get your outdoor lighting project approved by your HOA:

1. Focus on fixture choice.

Your HOA will want to know about the size, appearance, and light output of the fixtures you plan to install. Ask your lighting company for a fixture spec sheet or online resource so you can provide your HOA with all the information they need.

2. Clearly illustrate the design.

Share your design schema with your HOA. The document you turn in should be a precise outline of the lighting layout as it corresponds to your property’s plat.

3. Consult with your lighting company.

Inform your lighting company about your meeting with your HOA. Oftentimes, we have designed and installed lighting systems for neighbors and have already learned the specific HOA process and requirements. Additionally, some associations will want to talk to the contractor to get a comprehensive overview of the project. Be sure that your contractor is prepared to meet with your HOA if necessary.

Contact Enlightened Lighting if you have questions about lighting regulations or would like to begin the process of installing a lighting system in your yard.
