“With his deep understanding and appreciation of the interplay of light and shadow, Lyons has transformed our house from the ordinary to the magical.
Hire this man!”
Gordon & Lee – Alameda
We live in Oro Valley and have a lovely home with spectacular views. We wanted to accentuate the natural beauty around our home and hired a landscape architect and a contractor to build an artistic rock retaining wall on our property. When the landscaping and retaining wall were finished, we wanted to have strategic lighting placed to highlight the wall and landscaping. We were aware of the beautiful lighting jobs California Lighting Design did in Northern California, and when we found out the company recently relocated to Tucson, we were thrilled. Lyons Whitmore, the owner of California Lighting Designs, came to our home and we shared with him our thoughts about what we wanted to achieve with exterior lighting. Lyons brought samples of the fixtures his company uses, made suggestions and gave us ideas and then had us walk around our property with him. As we walked, he made suggestions based on what we hoped to achieve. We told him we wanted to do the exterior lighting in stages, and that we wished to begin with the newly landscaped area and the patio and courtyard off our master bedroom. We were delighted with his suggestions, and as he showed us where the lighting needed to be placed to best highlight and showcase the landscaping and retaining wall, we realized Lyons would save us from making costly mistakes. Lyons and his crew finished the first stage of lighting, and the results are spectacular! We will continue to work with California Lighting Design, and we will refer them often. We have found Lyons Whitmore to be a man of his word and a knowledgeable and skilled craftsman.

We just hired Lyons and crew after talking to many lighting companies for quotes and I’m so glad we did! He and his crew were very meticulous to get the job just right, there were many times he referenced “this is how I would do it if it were my house”. They were clean, tidy and efficient, even finished a day ahead of schedule! He took out all of our old high voltage lighting and installed low voltage LED energy efficient lighting around our entire yard and pool area, it looks beautiful. He designed a great layout for the lighting and we have the option to add more later if we choose, which I think is a nice option to have since you don’t really know what you need where until you see it all lit up. He also installed clear market bulb string lights from our home over our bbq area and it looks fabulous. I’ve always wanted to add that as ambiance lighting for outdoor eating area and he made it happen. Highly recommended!
Wow!!! Is how I would describe the eye for flare with lightning that Lyons the owner of Epic Lights has. I have a beautiful lot with hills, mature trees, and pathways. I had my lighting done by another lightning company and after there were done we sat outside one evening and said to myself “Boring” for all that money what an average job I might as well have hired an electrician to do my outdoor lights. A year went by broken lights, wiring not right, and timers breaking. Then I was reading a magazine one night and there was this beautiful picture of a night shoot of this backyard. I said wooooow that’s beautiful I hope this company does work in The Peninsula. I called immediately and spoke to a gentlemen by the name of Lyons I said please tell me you do jobs in the Peninsula. He was at my house that week. Walked the property came back again at dusk and said “I got this I will make this beautiful”. Not only did he fix all the broken lights and timers but he added such a flare in my trees, in my pathways, and down my creek that I sat out there the next night and said Wow this is so Zen! I was able to see such beauty in the dark with just the right brightness he hit spots in those trees that are breath taking when your outside enjoying your nights.
Thanks Lyons you are a real pro lighting guy and I’m sure my friends will feel the same when your done with there front and backyards too!
