What Are People Saying?

Great Experience. Both Marty and Alex did a super job with our design and showed us options that we had not even considered. We find the right solution for our lighting needs that really allowed us to showcase our home at a very affordable price. They worked diligently to keep our job within budget, the work was timely, professional and High quality. Marty and his team kept the work site clean. Their customer service is exceptional. After the lighting was installed, we wanted to make some minor changes in a couple of areas because we wanted a little different result. Marty came out and we discussed the changes and he took care of them immediately without hesitation. I spoke with several lighting installers before I found Elegance Outdoor Lighting, but most of them just told me to decide what I wanted and they would do the work. I am very glad we found Elegance Outdoor Lighting and I would highly recommend their services for all of your outdoor lighting needs.


Excellent company for lighting needs. Great design, quality materials. Very responsive and professional. After years of wrestling with the 'malibu' approach, I decided to finally install a professional system. I'm really glad I did and I'm glad I chose Elegance Outdoor Lighting. Just an update to my last review. We have a modest yard with a pool and wanted to upgrade some of the lighting. We had Elegance Outdoor Lighting do the front of the house a few years ago so I called them again to help with the back yard. I really can't say enough about them. They are great to work with and do an amazing job. They listen to what you want, make suggestions and offer creative ideas. The work is quality and reliable. Four years ago they did the front and had no problems at all and i'm looking forward to enjoying the yard now too.


How lucky were we to find Elegance Outdoor Lighting for our outdoor lighting project!! Alex and Marty are honest, personable, creative and experienced. Our design exceeded all our expectations-we are so pleased!

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."

"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. "


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! "

"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."
