Here’s what customers have to say about Estate Lighting:

Tim is truly a pleasure to work with!  His customer service was phenomenal.  Additionally, his work was exemplary.

I had damaged a light fixture in my family’s front yard.  This particular fixture was both expensive and difficult to locate.  Tim went out of his way to find the same fixture at a reduced price compared to retail!

I would strongly recommend his services to anyone.

Diane and I are very pleased with the lighting design and installation. Everything is very professional. We love coming up to the house in the dark now.

Thank you,

My wife and I want to thank you for the lighting system you expertly designed and installed at our home. We love the soft light of the low voltage system, the high-quality fixtures, and the automatic nature of the controls that also permit us to override them from inside the house.

When we come home after dark, having the gate and drive softly lit is like a warm welcome home. I think the light on the circle drive makes it much easier for our guests to stay on the drive and off the lawn. We had expected to enjoy the lights during the summer when we are outside and on the terrace, but what really surprised us is just how much we enjoy them the rest of the year.

Again, thank you for the great design and installation and your prompt responses to our additional requests.

Thank you for the prompt and excellent work you did for us. It is a pleasure to have someone who is neat and tidy do a service for us.


We have now had the landscape lighting for 2 years and we arrive home each evening as excited as the first time we saw it. You selected the perfect trees/bushes to highlight and the “moon” lighting over the deck is awesome. We appreciate the continued attention you give us with the annual service.

Tim installed a lighting system for our front and backyard three years ago. He does a fabulous job at a reasonable price. Tim is always attentive when we call.

To whoever is considering design, installation, and maintenance of landscape lighting.

We want you to know what a completely positive experience we have had with Tim and his Estate Lighting company. From the initial design phase to installation and now maintenance, Tim has been heard our needs, developed a beautiful plan and executed it flawlessly. When he finished he mentioned to me that if I ever have any problems or as plants grow that he would be out at a moments notice to keep our garden looking beautiful. He has delighted us with being available anytime we need him and having his maintenance program keeps all aspects of our lighting spot on always. we could not be more pleased with him and his service.

My wife and I enthusiastically recommend Tim and Estate Lighting as the best in class landscape lighting design, install and maintenance company.

Thanks for everything. We absolutely love our lighting.


Thank you for a great job! Thanks so much for including a bill for damages the workers did. Your kindness is so appreciated.


Last year my detached garage and cars were broken into and ransacked. I live alone and cannot tell you how disturbing this incident was. I contacted Tim at Estate Lighting and had him look over my entire yard. He started out with Motion detector lights on the garage itself. The perfect placement of these high-quality copper fixtures not only suited my home but are comforting in that they are very reliable. He then proceeded to introduce very subtle down lighting in the large trees throughout my yard. These fixtures make my yard seem like there is a full moon every night. Thanks to Tim for the perfect solution to an unwanted problem.

Dear Tim,

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your very prompt response to my call for service. Seeing you working around my house reminded me of the excellent service that I have received from you over the last 8 years. One seldom finds such continuous quality in service companies. Your prices are fair, your recommendations excellent with numerous price point options to consider, and when you service our home, I know that the work is done properly! There is never a need to call you back.

Finally, I also wanted to thank you for always being so pleasant and delightful to work with. It is a pleasure doing business with you.

Thank You,

Janet Emmerman

Our River Forest home is a bit of a trip from Richmond, Illinois but Tim has always provided service as if he lived next door. I wish all service companies were like Estate Lighting. Thanks!
