Hello and welcome to Beacon Landscape Lighting. We specialize in the design and installation of outdoor lighting systems in the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky area. We are not a landscaper, an irrigation company, or a mosquito control company. We are a professional lighting company. It’s our passion, and it’s all we do.


From the very beginning, I decided that customer focus and satisfaction were more important than volume. I am proud to say that our company is 100% locally owned and operated. As a result, we have complete control of an extremely high level of product quality and customer service.


With more than 2000 lighting designs & installs, we are the highest rated outdoor lighting company in the area. I love to design lighting systems that bring homes, landscapes, and business properties to life after dark.


Our installers and service technicians take great pride in the quality of their work, and that shows in customer satisfaction. Nothing makes me feel better than the thank you cards and phone calls from customers pleased with our lighting work. It used to be that the very best companies treated their customers like friends. At Beacon Landscape Lighting, we still practice this proven philosophy.


My team and I would love to work with you on your next lighting project. Call me. I will meet with you personally and design a lighting system specifically for your property. That's the Beacon way.




Joe Orrender, Owner/Designer




Every lighting project is unique. That's why we approach every lighting design differently. We come to you, and design a lighting system specifically for your property. Based on your needs and desires, we create lighting that provides security, beauty, curb appeal, and added property value.

We do it all! When you work with Beacon, you can leave the worries to us. Our installers and technicians are experienced, and they care how your property looks when the job is done. We don’t use large trenching machines that destroy your grounds and landscaping; instead, we dig everything carefully, by hand. Our goal is to leave your property looking like we found it, but looking even better at night.

When we say we take care of it all, we mean it. Our lighting systems are the best, and we install them with great care and precision. If ever something needs attention, just give us a call.

Lighting Design

"I love to design lighting systems. Having designed more than 2000 lighting scenarios, I am qualified to design a system that will bring your properly to life. I won’t assign your project to a “Junior designer."  I will give you the attention to detail you deserve."

- Joe Orrender Owner/Designer

Highest quality components

The materials that we use to construct our lighting systems are simply “the best.” Our fixtures are solid brass and/or copper (never plastic or powder coated aluminum). They are very heavy duty, and built to last. Our transformers are commercial grade stainless steel, multi-tap UL 1838 approved units. We use this higher grade transformer because it allows us to balance the voltage for proper illumination and maximum system life.

personal service

A very large percentage of our new customers come from current customer referrals, and we plan to keep it that way. When you call Beacon, you get personal service. The person you talk to knows lighting and knows your specific lighting design and system. You will not waste time trying to explain who you are and what you need. When you work with Beacon, you work with the best.

Attention to detail

We have been working in the landscape lighting industry for many years, and we know the difference is in the details. It's our job to notice both the large and small details. They are all equally important for your total project satisfaction. As a result, wework hard to make sure these details are taken care of.

cutting edge technology

The lighting industry is always changing, and we work hard to stay a step ahead to give our customers the choices they want. From photo cells and astrological timing systems, to state of the art LED components and zone specific system controls, we not only offer all available options, but we work with you to help you choose the system options that will be right for you in the long run.

We are sure that you will be happy when you chose Beacon Landscape Lighting to work with on your lighting project but don’t just take our word for it.  Here is what our customers are saying:

"Joe not only outbid 2 other local landscape lighting contractors, but he was great to work with through the planning, installation and fine tuning stage. I now have another lighting project he's working on. Great people!"

-George, Cincinnati, OH

"I contacted Joe as well as two other companies for bids on the job. Joe had competitive pricing. I choose them because of how they answered my questions and concerns. They were prompt when making appts and returning phone calls. The job was completed with respect to my property (ie. no messes in landscaping left behind) and I am very pleased with the job."

- Ruth Ann, Union, KY

"The experience with Joe was fantastic. The important part to me, was that Joe listened to what we wanted to achieve, made his suggestions, and did not oversell us. He was willing to explain the different types of lights, and how placement can make a big difference. The Beacon team did show up as expected, installed everything, and it looks amazing. There are several houses around us that have house up-lighting, and ours does look a bit better because he recommended lighting higher on the house. LED lighting was used, with an astronomical timer that will turn them on at dusk and off before dawn, as it adjusts for the time of year.

Great experience overall, and fantastic result, we could not be more happy."

- Barry, Batavia, OH

"Great, experience. Joe Orrender and his team did a fantastic job."

- James, Loveland, OH

"Joe Orrender was responsive and professional from our initial contact through project completion.  He designed a beautiful lighting system and installed high quality products at a very competitive price.  Although this is his busiest season, he communicated continually with accurate timelines and installed the lights as promised.  He, and his crew. were very careful with turf, shrub beds, and existing fixtures.  There is virtually no indication that the lawn was disturbed.  We are delighted with the end result and will definitely recommend them for any outdoor lighting needs."

- Linda, Milford, OH

"We liked his product and my husband liked the way he came out and he did the estimate. We had the possibility to choose the lights."

- Wayne, Cincinnati, OH

"It was a very efficient process from initial concepts, revisions, final quote and installation.  The installation completed before the holidays and we were able to appreciate the transformation immediately.  With significantly reduced wattage, it was easy to justify dusk-to-dawn lighting.  We often find ourselves looking out the windows and enjoying the landscape, even in the winter.  The recent snowfall was simply spectacular."

- Dawn, Cincinnati, OH

"Joe Orrender installed professional, high quality metal low voltage lighting in our yard to replace plastic Malibu lighting purchased from Home Depot. We always had some kind of issue with our do-it-yourself outdoor lighting including water leakage and bulb replacement. Our new timer is set to turn lights on and off based on a GPS system. The lights know when it is sunset and turn on at the right time regardless of the time of year. Just set it and forget it.  Our new lights are in the right spots to showcase our property. The shape, size and wattage was tailored for the each location. No hot spots! Great, knowledgeable and experienced  people. "

- Richard, Cincinnati, OH

"Joe Orrender does a very good, thorough job on his installation and set up. He works to keep the disruption to the yard and landscaping to a minimum and then reviews how all systems have been installed and how they work. He gave us the option to have the timing cycles set to whatever modality we wanted, thus we opted for all night illumination for security purposes. Very pleased with how Joe handled the entire process. Would definitely recommend Joe and am considering expanding upon what has already been installed."

- Dave, Cincinnati, OH

"The lights look great and the neighbors agree. Joe was very easy to work with and  I recommend him highly. We really like the effect of the lights in the back. wow." - John, West Chester, OH

"They provide excellent service. They are professional and knowledgeable with fair pricing structure. It looks great." - Susan, Ft. Wright, KY

"They were very efficient. They respond quickly and they do a good job."

- Joe, Edgewood, KY

"From the time I called, Joe got over to give me an estimate within a week.  They were behind on some jobs due to all the rain but I was informed of that.   They did fit me in as promised and did all the work while I was away on vacation.  I returned to find the lighting all done and could see no indication they had been there.  All the wires were buried and my own original landscaping looked untouched.   Joe recommended some backyard lighting which I hadn't considered but is now my favorite part.

- Margaret, Ft. Thomas, KY

"Job well done! Got compliments from neighbors on how good the lights looked. The company was very thorough. They've got excellent systems. They did a good job cleaning after themselves. They were a very professional company and I really enjoyed how they kept us informed of the work being performed."

- Shawn, Liberty Township, OH

"They did an excellent job! I was very pleased with their work, and I can easily recommend them to others."

- Mario, Mason, OH

"He was completely professional the entire time. He was completely impressive and knew his subject matter very well. He was able to develop the quote very quickly."

- Derek, Cincinnati, OH
