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.

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.

We 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.




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. we create lighting that provides security, beauty, curb appeal, and added property value.


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 nveeds attention, just give us a call.




"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, Ohio

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, Ohio

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, Ohio

"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, Kentucky

"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, Fort Thomas, Kentucky
