Commercial Outdoor Lighting in Maryland, Northern Virginia & D.C.
Illuminating your landscape with commercial outdoor lighting increases property visibility, value, curb appeal, and safety. Even the most budget-conscious owners and managers can benefit from adding well-placed landscape accent lighting throughout their properties.
Commercial outdoor lighting is different than standard commercial lighting. Outdoor lighting runs on low voltage or solar and can be highly energy-efficient, while commercial lighting is typically operated on high voltage. Complete’s commercial lighting professionals install energy-efficient LED fixtures along walking paths, at building entrances, and to showcase unique architectural elements and specimen trees. Automatic timers and solar controls reduce energy costs while guaranteeing maximum lighting benefits. This seemingly small change can improve the visibility of your business after the sun has set and can help bring customers in the door. Commercial lighting design gets your property noticed and allows the landscape to be showcased – even after dark.
Commercial Lighting Benefits
Using commercial outdoor lighting throughout your commercial property will deliver several benefits. A well planned and placed lighting design creates more welcoming spaces that customers and visitors are likely to use time and again.
Safety in a commercial property is important to residents, tenants, and visitors. Low voltage commercial landscape lighting can illuminate hazardous areas such as steps and paths, making them easier to navigate in the dark. Lighting can also brighten building entrances, alcoves, and breezeways. Coupling lighting with timers or motion sensors can make sure lights are on during optimum hours of the evening, but not running all night long.
Commercial lighting can be used to accentuate the beauty and functionality of a property after dark. Using wall washers or uplights can showcase monument signage and architecture. Downlighting can be used to illuminate amenity spaces and extend their use into the evening hours. Fountain lighting can illuminate unique water features, making them more visible.

At Complete Landscaping Service, we begin each new lighting project with a detailed on-site consultation. We will help you set a budget for your project and show you several options for proceeding. We can ensure your property meets ADA accessibility requirements as well as local bylaws.
Your options may include motion-sensitive or timed lighting, energy-efficiency fluorescent and LED bulbs, automatic dimmers and more. Different lighting systems work better for different spaces, too. For example, the illumination needs of a semi-automated warehouse will vary considerably from those of a busy apartment complex.
Once we’ve determined the optimum solution for your business, we’ll put together a detailed quote and source the products we need to get the job done. We work with a variety of suppliers to find quality products for any application. During the installation, we’ll work quickly to minimize disruption and maintain transparent communication as the job progresses. In the end, we’ll deliver a quality job at a fair price — with no last-minute surprises or hidden fees.
Why Work With a Professional?
Lighting a commercial property is something that many can do passably, but few can do expertly. You could string up a few exterior lamps and consider the job done. However, there are several good reasons for working with a professional.
A commercial lighting expert will be able to identify the best way to illuminate your property and make it feel more accessible to visitors. The effect may be subtle, but it’s significant. Working with a professional also presents you with more options. The Complete Landscaping Service team is fully qualified to do the electrical work necessary to install smarter, more integrated systems that work for your business.
Finally, a commercial lighting expert will know what products are out there and be better positioned to make smart recommendations based on your property’s needs and budget. For large facilities, lighting can be a major ongoing expense. We can suggest energy-efficient bulbs and smart control systems that keep your costs down without affecting performance.
