Great lighting is the ‘icing on the cake’ for a beautiful landscape. Never mind that great lighting also has safety as a bonus–it provides a warm, welcoming feel. Four years later I still appreciate what Outdoor Illumination has created and I consider the night lighting one of things I enjoy most about my home.

When my wife and I decided to build our home at the beach we had one requirement with our project: use only the best of the best of contractors and suppliers. During our landscaping and night lighting selections, George Hartner and his company Outdoor Illumination made that selection a no-brainer for us, let George do our lighting! It was an easy decision and George and his firm have been there to help us with any needs we have had , which were few since we moved in three years ago. I hired George’s firm to do another job for us and never met him on the job site. I just gave him a budget and forgot about it. George and his company were a pleasure to work with and we love our night lighting.

Thank you so much for the accent lighting in our backyard. We enjoy evenings sitting on the deck and watching the shadows come out. You did a wonderful job and we appreciate the beautiful setting we will enjoy for years to come.

George Hartner is by far the most creative, most professional and most pleasant sub contractor I have ever worked with. His attention to detail and warranty service work is absolutely exceptional. I am the proud owner of Landscapes Unique which is about to celebrate its 25th anniversary and in all those years we have worked with many night lighting contractors who were OK on a good day but George outshines them all day & night!!

The design, installation and follow up service have been fantastic! Our landscape can now be a thing of beauty 24/7 if we choose. Thank you.

George at Outdoor Illumination is very artistic, creative, reliable, and easy to work with. Our night lightscape he installed continues to produce many compliments.
