Landscape Illumination, Inc.

The Premier Outdoor Lighting Solution.

Landscape Illumination is a Valparaiso, Indiana based company dedicated to the art of landscape lighting. Our company was founded in 2000 by Darrin Selking. Darrin, who has a double degree from Purdue University in landscape management/design and turf grass management, designs, plans, and is involved with the installation of all lighting systems. We are members of the Porter and Lake County Indiana Builders Associations as well as the Low Voltage Lighting Institute of the Americas (LVLIA). This is a professional organization made up of lighting contractors and manufacturers dedicated to setting forth standards and increasing awareness of outdoor lighting. Landscape and seasonal lighting are our only business, not a sideline or an addition to other design activities. We have the knowledge of proper fixture placement and light capabilities which is by far the most important aspect in professional landscape lighting design and installation. Allow Landscape Illumination Inc. to enhance your landscaping or extend the architecture of your home. Outdoor lighting fixtures illuminate smooth transitions between indoor and outdoor living spaces while softer lighting textures create inviting scenes and dramatic shadows. No project is too large or too small for our prompt, courteous service. We have installed lighting systems costing from several hundred to over $25,000 dollars. In 2002, Landscape Illumination became the largest installer of outdoor lighting systems in Indiana, Lower Michigan, and South Chicagoland. In 2003, we became one of the largest lighting companies in the Midwest.

Review by a homeowner in Homewood, IL
The customer should be right in most cases, and their customer service is lacking in what is needed for a business. Honor the work that the customer requested you do.
Response by Landscape Illumination, Inc.: We were never hired by this person thru HomeAdvisor. This review is fake.

Review by in Mishawaka, IN
Jerry is amazing! He is an animal lover which really helped when I had numerous questions about set up and the training of our dog. He was always quick to respond and always had a friendly attitude. I rated quality of the work itself at 4.5 because the installers did not put the fence in the right place in the front yard, but it's not off enough to make them redo it. Overall, Landscape Illumination is an awesome company if you're looking to have an underground pet fence installed.

It was Outdoor Lighting and I'm pleased that they installed exactly what they described. I'm pleased with the mounted lighting on my house for security.

We have decided to have this work done in the fall of '09. I can say, the company was very prompt in calling me and provided excellent information for us to consider for the job. The contact person was very courteous and professional, therefore, I will be contacting them a few weeks prior to the time we want to have the job done.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
