The Landscape Lighting that you and your home deserves.

  • Our landscape lighting sets the mood

When we do a lighting project it is far more than simply throwing some uplights on trees and your home. We create a living illumination portrait of your property. It is an art form and our style is distinctive. We EXPAND your property using lighting so that you can enjoy ALL of your property any time of day or night.

Our slogan of “we’ll knock your socks off” goes so much deeper than you being impressed with what your yard looks like when we are done but you will also want to keep your shoes off as you enjoy your very own backyard resort.

  • Are you tired of living in darkness?
  • Are you tired of losing most of your property when the sun goes down?

I wish every service provider would treat us like the guys from Barefoot Lighting. They took the time to listen to our desires and needs, and then provided creative solutions to meet or exceed them. They spent a great deal of time staging the potential lighting options and showing us the possibilities. Once the project was complete, they also returned to make sure we were completely satisfied. All the while, it was obvious that they genuinely cared about our home and their work. They took pride in their work, and it showed. The backyard is now completely transformed – we can now dine comfortably outside in the evening, grill in the evening, and relax by the fire in the evening. Moreover, the lights strike the perfect balance of giving enough light to illuminate the space without being overly bright or glaring. We paid a premium and it was worth every penny to have beautiful lights that will last long into the future with a company that stands behind their work! We very much look forward to working with Barefoot Lighting in the future on additional phases of work.

My wife and I had a terrific experience with Barefoot Lighting. Every person we met while working with them was so helpful and courteous that we could not have had a better experience. Their explanation of the entire process was understandable and thorough. We knew exactly what we were purchasing and the pricing was right on the money for the great quality products that they provided. They really know their craft and came up with a detailed, one of a kind plan that worked for our property. They were right on target for how long it would take the job to be completed and went out of their way to make sure we were extremely happy with everything they did for us. We could not have possibly asked for better customer service. Barefoot Lighting made our property exactly how we envisioned it. We now have a much better place that we call home because of them. I wholeheartedly endorse their company.

Barefoot Lighting has been a pleasure to work with. From the outset of the project, they sought first to understand our specific vision for lightning – in this case, bistro lights over a new backyard patio space. From there, they brought their own design to bear through staging of lights in all of the spaces of our home’s landscaping and exterior which really made it possible to see the potential for the space. They helpfully broke down different areas into stages with clear quotations and specifications for execution in the future. We ended up having three phases done immediately – the quality of the materials is high-end and the care taken in the install is considerable. They sought feedback at every stage and were happy to move anything (even at considerable effort) to meet our requests. They are unlikely to be the lowest cost option, but the quality of both the product and the design and attention are at a premium level. Would recommend.

Some Clients that Have Lost Their Socks

If you’re looking for high quality, professional decorative lights for your home or business, contact the Christmas Guys. They make holiday light dreams come true!! When the crew shows up, they play Christmas music and it immediately feels festive. They work fast and do an amazing job. They do all the set up, break down, and store the lights every year. We love our Christmas lights so much that we hired the Christmas Guys to hang string lights over our patio to create a “backyard oasis”, and it came out awesome. We hang out there all the time– the lights change color and have different settings so it’s great for parties or just chilling. One more thing I want to mention is my husband and I had to downsize our wedding due to Covid and had an after party in our backyard. Matt from the Christmas Guys offered us to use their “LOVE” letter lights and an 8 ft tall illuminated heart to decorate with, which took the space to the next level– everyone loved the lights! These guys are fun to work with and so talented– so look no further for your decorating needs!
