We take the guesswork out of lighting design.

You have probably noticed that there is a big difference between a home that is tastefully decorated with holiday lights and one that looks overdone and unappealing. The same can be true of lighting design for landscaping illumination and beautification of your Raleigh, North Carolina home. At Laurdane Associates, we have decades of experience with irrigation and lighting design. You will enjoy all of the benefits that a well-designed lighting system provides, including:

Lighting Design
  • Ambiance– You’ll enjoy coming home after dark to home that is welcoming in appearance.
  • Safety- With path lighting, you can walk around with confidence you can avoid trip hazards.
  • Security- Criminals do not care for lighting that makes their actions more visible. With a well-designed lighting design in place, they will avoid targeting your home.
  • Curb appeal- Potential buyers often drive around neighborhoods after dark. When you have your home on the market, they’ll fall in love with it and be more inclined to schedule a tour.

Your expertise is greatly appreciated.

 
Testimonial

“Ethan, your expertise is greatly appreciated. The exterior lighting is soft and enhances the house. It’s obvious to me now when looking at the house across the street, I’m looking at bright landscape lights versus the house.”

Why Choose Laurdane Associates?

Laurdane Associates has remained a small, hands-on company over the years. Staying small is one of Ethan’s strongest selling points. He can personally oversee every project, and usually gets his hands just as dirty as everyone else!

Ethan exceeded expectations in every way at every opportunity, and I 100% recommend him. I cleared my lot and was installing a first-time lawn, requiring advice on topsoil, grading, runoff / swales, sprinkler system designs, installation, etc.. After researching the best irrigation companies, with Ethan making the short list, I met each of them on site. Most were eager to get the job, shrugging it off as an easy project they surely could do, but Ethan was different. He came in an older van wearing a Crocodile Dundee hat (which I mention because I misjudged the book by the cover, and I wouldn't want anyone else to do the same), and walked around the yard thoroughly. He checked slope, root systems, asked about plants, garden zones, grass types, timelines, and also about me and my family (he's such a nice guy). He said he wouldn't be the cheapest nor would he be the most expensive, and encouraged me to pick his brain for problem solving while he was here, because he liked that part and wanted to help while he could even if I didn't move forward with him. A natural teacher, Ethan explained anything I asked about with detail and patience. He worked around our schedule, coordinated with our other contractors (grading and stump grinding), helped spread dirt in a swale to speed up the process so I could seed before the first frost, and paid close attention to the little details like making sure sprayheads reached target areas, the water sensor was level on the roof, and the backflow preventer was neat and trim. His crew worked quickly when it was time to trench for the pipes, and they were very polite and respectful of our property. At their suggestion, multiple weekend days were taken advantage of to keep the project on schedule. As with any new install, a few issues came up and Ethan was there same day to address. His pricing was excellent, with a line-item approach for full transparency (so refreshing), and asked me to approve any changes beforehand. Final cost was right where he said it would be, and I couldn't be happier. He even showed me how to winterize the system and adjust sprinkler arcs so I could be self-sufficient. Ethan always asked how my wife and son were, by first name (and I only told him once on the first day), and genuinely cared about the answer. That guy in the old van with the silly hat easily was the most dependable, hardest working, level-headed, and best contractor I've hired in the state. Don't even bother asking anyone else, pick Ethan and know you're in experienced, capable, considerate hands. 5/5.

Laurdane Associates not only maintains our irrigation system, but turns out, unbeknown to us, had installed it 25+ years prior for the previous homeowner. They are hard workers and have installed/updated multiple new areas on our property in addition to Startup / Winterizing each year.

I used Ethan to install my first irrigation system 27 years ago. When it came time to install a new system in my new home I called on Ethan again. I am a satisfied customer again!

Laurdane solved several issues we had with water draining and pooling in crawl space. They improved both conditions to the point that they are no longer problems. The service was honest and straight forward, very profession and efficient. Service fee was reasonable to a quality job. Would call on them in the future is another issue arises.
