whats up guys? Im looking for some input on what you guys are charging for landscape lighting installs (including trenching). For some reason this one always is a tough one for me. The weather is getting nice around here (Long Island N.Y.) and were completing (2) huge houses that want to roll right into the exterior lighting. Any Advice will be appriciated. Thanks.
What's to know, the landscapers are getting $1,200 to install 10 light HD economy outdoor light kit, the yard man up the street puts in 6 to 8 a week, He calls them Custom lighting design installations.

I saw an installation locally by someone who installed "Vista Professional Outdoor Lighting". It was very attractive, and I'm sure he could name his price. Personally, I don't like playing in the dirt that much any more (or attics, or crawl spaces, or extension ladders).

It is easy to see why he posted having trouble, landscape lighting is a tough sell, and there many points to consider, type of lighting, and price point, you cam get a spot for $10, and a good spot may cost as much as $100, the transformers vary in quality and price, the cable used, outdoor zip or UF, or conduit.
Will they get the property marked out, or just assume they are not digging that deep so they don't need a markout, well don't be supprised if you damage phone or cable lines, they are near the surface, and here in this state the fines for hitting one is up there, also a permit is required.
I have seen landscape lighting jobs as high as $20,000, it is a good field to work in, just take your time and plan each job with care.

I need to get into this type of work. We get request for it often, but turn it down or refer it to a lanscape light company. I personally hate digging and don't know much about outdoor lighting design. I now have enough guys working for me that I wouldn't have to dig, so I need to do is educate myself on the design so I can sell it. Anyone know a website to help.
