"My wife and I had delayed making a decision about outside lighting for years because of all the questions about design, function, cost, choice of materials, workmanship, and so on. We were impressed with the Elegance Outdoor Lighting brochure which seemed to answer a lot of our main concerns. After a few short meetings we were convinced that our questions had been answered and the decision was easy to make. We have been totally satisfied with our decision to trust Elegance Outdoor Lighting and our home is now more secure as well as more beautiful."

James

"We interviewed three outdoor lighting companies before choosing Elegance Outdoor Lighting. They gave the most competitive estimate and the most professional presentation. The installation was quick and unobtrusive, and we are very happy with the finished product! We would definitely use them again!"

Dyann

Southlake, TX
"Thank you for coming to repair my landscape lighting. Although our system was installed by someone else, Marty was able to find out quickly what the problems were and fix it for us for a reasonable price. We appreciate your professional and businesslike manner. "

Nancy

Irving, TX
"Our lighting design is beautiful and unique. Alex did a lovely job of accentuating the best features of our home and gardens, while also including the things I had asked for. There's a light over the BBQ area I can turn on with a switch when we cook out, but it doesn't have to stay on when we are sitting out enjoying our yard! The rest of our system comes on automatically with no effort from me, and the place just looks great! "

Andy

"Excellent work and communications; willingness to help."

Sandra

"The folks at Elegance Outdoor Lighting have surpassed our expectations in every way! Our house is the most beautiful on the block and our back yard environment is absolutely magical."

Caroline

Southlake, TX
"It has been a year since the installation of my landscape lighting. To this day, I still drive by the front of the house at night to admire how beautiful it looks. Although there are many more elaborate homes in my neighborhood, our home stands out and has an ambiance like no other. I think what I am most proud of when I look at my home is the lighting job you completed. I would highly recommend Elegance Outdoor Lighting to anyone who wants the BEST."

Dianne

"Elegance Outdoor Lighting is an outstanding company to work with. Their senior designer conducts a professional design consultation, gathers all the information and documentation that will be needed, and gives us a professional and artistic design. She uses artistic and creative design methods, and efficient light sources. We appreciate that they always specify excellent quality equipment with enforceable warranties. Their installation team is professional and pleasant. They arrive clean and neat - at the appointed time, keep the job site tidy, answer questions and conduct their installation in an orderly and efficient manner.
