About Us

Designing and Installing Our Custom Lighting Systems for Over 20 Years

Over the past two decades, our team has created beautiful landscape lighting seen throughout Northern Virginia, Washington DC, and Maryland, and it all started with the hard work and creative dedication of Enlightened Lighting’s local owner and operator Patrick Harders.

Aside from designing gorgeous and distinctive outdoor lighting systems for residential and commercial properties, Harders also designs and manufactures his own line of high-quality lighting fixtures. His expertise in quality lights, installation, and system maintenance provides our clients with the absolute highest quality and most stunning architectural and garden lighting systems possible.


What We Do

We pride ourselves in our persistent attention to detail, which starts with your complimentary design consultation, so you can see the true potential of your home and landscaping before making any decisions. We cater to your home’s unique architectural styling and your personal preferences with custom fixture selection, professional installation, stellar service, and hassle-free maintenance.

Your Satisfaction is Our Priority

Call us old-fashioned, but we believe in the importance of building real relationships with our customers. Even as the company has grown, our owner, Patrick Harders, is still actively involved in many of our exterior lighting designs, working with installation teams to ensure every landscape lighting system meets his high standards of visual appeal and performance. We take pride in our small, well-trained crews who work with precision to install the best garden lighting and outdoor lighting systems in Aldie, Alexandria, Bethesda, Fairfax, Falls Church, Gainesville, Great Falls, Leesburg, McLean, Oakton, Potomac, Vienna and the surrounding communities. We respect each client’s property throughout the entire installation process and hope you will enjoy working with our company as much as you will love the illumination artistry of your new lighting system.
