"Let us light up your night!"


"Alan, Thank you for all of your hard work, the yard looks incredible! I only wish we had done this years ago; the difference it made in how we are able to enjoy the garden is amazing!"

Alan has always been very prompt and professional in providing us excellent service maintaining our lighting investment. We highly recommend the talented professionals at Moonlight by Design. You won't be disappointed."

"I originally had another local company install our landscape lighting. BIG MISTAKE! After our mulch bed caught fire and our lights failed on numerous occasions, I gave up with the original contractor and called Moonlight by Design. Mr. Hissem at Moonlight by Design quickly came out to our home and gave our current system a thorough evaluation including recommendations for next steps. Mr. Hissem was very honest about what could be used from the old system and what had to be replaced and reinstalled to prevent another fire or light outages. I felt that he really made an effort to save us money by reusing what he could on the old system. He also made some lighting design recommendations to highlight the specific features of our house that were much more effective than our original design. Moonlight by Design's proposal actually ended up being less money than the original contractor. The true test of their high quality lighting installation has been that in the last year, If you want a high quality, safe landscape lighting installation that is a reasonable cost in the Hampton Roads area your best bet is to call Moonlight by Design. I wish I had called them first; it would have saved a lot of money, aggravation and prevented a visit from the fire department."

Alan understands the architecture and growth of the plant material and the nuances of the lighting products so he can provide creative lighting solutions that perfectly complement the landscape and architecture. Since he does not mind working at night, I recommend Moonlight by Design for the lighting portion of my landscape designs.

"As a landscape designer, I work only with contractors I can trust to provide the best service and quality for my clients. I have known and worked with Alan for many years. His past experience as a landscape foreman gives him a special sensitivity to both plants and architecture and how both can be enhanced with artistic lighting. He and Corey are hard working and efficient, and my clients are always thrilled with the results."

"We tried two different lighting companies before finding Moonlight By Design. In both such cases, we had problems with the work accomplished and significant repair and replacement costs. Our new system from Moonlight By Design has lasted through our worst winter in some times and creates the mood that we wanted. The few minor adjustments requested were accomplished promptly and easily without the repeated call backs we had to make to vendors in the past. We are very pleased with their work and would recommend their services."
