Our fixtures set us apart! Crafted and designed to endure the elements, inspired by years of in-the-field experience; the landscape lighting fixtures we install were designed by our founder, Patrick Harders.

This is rare; you won't find many design/installation companies whose founder designed and manufactured his own outdoor lighting fixtures.

This means our Enlightened design team has you covered from start to finish. We have a custom-line of premium quality fixtures designed for elegance and durability, installed by expert craftsmen.

With over 20 years in the landscape lighting industry, our Enlightened Lighting, LLC founder, Patrick Harders, knows what makes a great lighting design and what can be achieved with exceptional landscape lighting artistry.

"I believe that a great lighting design can have a powerful effect on a home. Lighting packs an emotional punch—it’s why I love working on designs so much. With great outdoor lighting, you can create a warm and welcoming atmosphere, ease tension and stress, and create the perfect getaway to unwind and relax. It adds drama and atmosphere to your outdoor spaces, allowing you to enjoy your home even after dark."

For the first time, we're happy to share pictures from our internationally recognized Bull Run project in a social media debut!

This project earned an Honorable Mention in the Landscape Lighting category for the 2020 LIT Lighting Design Awards. 🏅🏅

The goal was to showcase the beauty of the landscape and create subtle lighting on the home to allow it to blend in with the property. We utilized moonlighting along the driveway which resulted in cascading light and shadows. Other points of interest we illuminated included a water feature, statues, and trees.

The homeowner loved the glow we added to this rustic, natural property and we're honored to have been recognized for our excellence in this international design contest!

Buying Landscape Lighting Is NOT Like Buying A Car

Investing in your home can often be stressful, which is why we aim to be straight-forward, reliable, consistent in our pricing, and do what we say we're going to do.

Our customer shares: "The experience dealing with Patrick, Josh, and Karen for landscape lighting is not like buying a car... it's not something that you feel that you will be taken or there's some special price other people are getting... it's just been such a good experience."

Halloween won't be the same this year, but we've heard candy sales are up & some neighborhoods are finding creative ways to safely distribute candy. 🍬🎃🍫 If you are expecting trick-or-treaters, make sure your property is well lit, with this handy check list:

☑️ Test out your exterior lights to make sure the bulbs have not burnt out.
☑️ Replace any bulbs that have burnt out.
☑️ Consider switching out incandescent and halogen bulbs to more energy-efficient options like LED’s.
☑️ Survey your property and identify changes of elevation, steps, cracks in sidewalk, etc. Be sure to closely examine any problem areas where children could trip or stumble.
☑️ Make sure any problematic areas of your property are well lit or clearly marked so that trick-or-treaters are aware.
☑️ Set up luminaries equidistant across walkway and avoid use of candles, which could be a fire hazard. Instead, use battery-powered LED’s inside.

Entrepreneur finds passion and profits under man-made moonlight

This month marks 5 years since our owner, Patrick Harders, and his business were profiled in the Washington Post.

If you had told him as a kid, that he would make a career out of illuminating landscapes and homes, and designing/manufacturing light fixtures, Patrick probably would have given you a weird look and asked about his dream about becoming President of the United States.

Well, he chose a career path that did NOT involve politics, but did involve electrifying work! And he didn't discover his passion for lighting until working a part-time job during college. ⚡️💡

Did you know October is Virginia Wine Month? If you drink wine, now is a great time to support your local vineyards and wineries. 🍇🍷

We want to give a shoutout to Leesburg’s Stone Tower Winery which has great wine and a beautiful landscape and scenery. We were asked to design and install their outdoor lighting, and ended up winning an Association of Outdoor Lighting Professionals Lighting Award for this project.

Dazzling outdoor lighting in Great Falls, VA

Driving home and walking up the front walkway on a cool, crisp, autumn night, shouldn't be done in a pitch dark driveway or stumbling through a dimly lit yard. Outdoor lighting makes such a big difference, especially as the sun sets earlier.

This project in Great Falls, VA shows how lighting creates a warm, welcoming entry and outdoor space to enjoy during the fall and all year long.

Customer Testimonial - Dave C.

"We asked Patrick Harders to help us with our lighting at this house and also our house in Woodbridge, VA. He surveyed it, had his crew come out and installed it within a day. We thought out here it might be difficult... but Patrick showed me the best spot down by the pond and the gazebo, and we started with that and then the waterfall... [lighting] made it more appealing to sit outside and enjoy that."
