John Lane


We provide creative, professional outdoor lighting solutions throughout the Carolina foothills, from Greenville, SC to Asheville, NC and areas between.  We’re experienced pros, working closely with home owners and contractors to create a new atmosphere at your home or place of business.


Lighting technology has changed quickly over the years.  We've learned that most people are pleased with a hands free system that functions reliably with low installation and operating cost.  Our systems are mainly of this design, rather than overly complex and costly programmable systems.  Natural, warm LED light with solid performance.


As a landscape architect with a 30 year history of project experience, I've installed hundreds of modern, professional low voltage lighting systems.  This experience has enabled us to quickly design and install proven systems that will be energy efficient, easy to operate and last a lifetime.  Please give us a call with questions.

Why Outdoor Lighting?

Professional Outdoor Lighting is a great way to increase the safety, ambiance and square footage of your living area in the evening hours.  Your home and landscape will have increased security and safety at steps and walkways.

What is your service area?

We're located in Columbus, NC, midway between Asheville, NC and Greenville, SC, so we can easily service these communities and areas between. 

What is the cost for Outdoor Lighting?

Created with Sketch.

We’ll be happy to provide a rough estimate over the phone or by text or email.  For an accurate estimate, we'll need to meet to review your site and discuss your project goals.

Please call, email or text and we’ll contact you asap.  We will be competitive with every professional service.

What forms of payment do you accept?

Created with Sketch.

We accept Cash, Personal Check, all Major Credit Cards and Venmo.  If you prefer, we can email an invoice at the completion of your project.  This will allow you to pay online by credit card with our secure payment processor, Square.  

What type of equipment do you recommend?

Created with Sketch.

We can use any brand of lighting equipment that you prefer, however we will recommend only professional lighting components - products made of brass and stainless steel, designed to last a lifetime.  Our system will always include energy efficient LED fixtures with warm, natural light color and we will deliver sample fixtures for your review, prior to installation.

Can you service an older, existing lighting system?

Created with Sketch.

It may be possible to service your system if you have a professional installation.  However, often we find that it's not cost effective to repair an older system with failing components.  Some older lighting transformers can even become a fire risk with continued use.  If needed, a new system will be suggested with a free estimate.

Can you provide a certificate of insurance?

Created with Sketch.

Yes.  We have a local insurance agent and can provide a Certificate of Insurance if needed.

Can you install a Dark Sky compliant system?

Created with Sketch.

Sure.  A system designed to protect the night sky will be comprised mainly of shrouded path light fixtures, down lights and low level wall lights to limit the upward spread of light.  You will still have very effective outdoor lighting with this type of system and this will always be our first suggestion.

Do you guarantee your work?

Created with Sketch.

Yes, certainly.  Our systems include a complete one year warranty covering material and labor costs for any issue.  Materials will be also covered for a longer period, 5 years to lifetime, depending on the selected components.

Do I need to call 811 to locate utilities?

Created with Sketch.

If required, we will notify the local 811 service of our plans to work on your site.  The location service will require several days notice to mark your property.  If you have a remote site or you're familiar with your utility locations, this may not always be necessary.

How do I schedule my project?
