Welcome to The Illuminators Outdoor Lighting

Chicagoland's Top Rated Outdoor Landscape Lighting Contractor

We, The Illuminators, strive to set the outdoor lighting industry standard when it comes to quality and professionalism. How can we do this? It's simple. Outdoor lighting is all we do - it's our passion! We have chosen outdoor lighting as our niche market. That gives us a competitive edge over the many companies such as landscapers, pavers, brick-layers, seal-coaters, power-washers, gutter-cleaners, deck-builders, electricians, irrigators and anyone else that just offers outdoor or landscape lighting as an afterthough or add-on of their main business. We use many techniqures in our lighting design plans that are not used, studied or understood by many of our competitors. The Illuminators also specialize in repairing and maintaining all types of outdoor lighting whether we orignally installed it or not.


The Illuminators have over 50 years of combined design and installation experience in the outdoor and landscape lighting industry. Out vast experience .......

Outdoor Ground LED

Why LED Lighting?


LED landscape lighting can save up to 80% in ourdoor lighting energy costs, saving a consumer a significant amount of money peryear over the other outdoor lighting options.


LED bulb replacement is almost non-existent. LED landscape lighting bulbs are rated to last 25,000 - 70,000 hours depending on the manufacturer. Normal 12V halogen bulbs are usually rated between 1,000 - 10,000 hours.


LED outdoor landscape lighting is the safest form of outdoor lighting. LED landscape lighting produces very little heat compared to normal halogen landscape lighting. The LED lighting fixture is only slightly warm to the touch where as halogen 12 volt landscape lights can cause severe burns to people if touched.

Design Techniques


The first step in THE ILLUMINATORS design process is to ask "Why light?" An outdoor lighting system can focus on safety, security, property value, budget, enhancement of the beauty of the landscape, or a combination of these points. Our experieced design team uses several techniques to accomplish these goals. For example, up lighting a tree near the house entrance will provide safety and security, or strategically placing a few spotlights within a garden will provide aesthetic enhancement. Low levels of light create subtle beauty, illuminating points such as paths and gardens. Brighter lighting effects are used for focal points within the landscaping. For example, down lighting placed within a tall tree must be bright enough to cast "moonlighting" shadows in the surrounding area. Our design engineers know how much light is needed to create the desired effects and can implement this knowledge into your lighting design.

Good Ideas

  1. It is a good idea to have your existing outdoor landscape lighting system professionally maintained 1 - 2 times a year to protect your original investment and to prevent service issues over time.

  2. LED outdoor landscape lighting is the safest form of outdoor lighting. LED landscape lighting produces very little heat compared to normal halogen landscape lighting. The LED lighting fixture is only slightly warm to the touch where as halogen 12 volt landscape lights can cause severe burns to people if touched.

  3. Save green by going green. LED landscape lighting systems dramatically reduce the impact on the environment due to the big savings in energy and installation costs. LED outdoor lighting systems use much less copper wire, smaller transformers and basically no lamp replacments.

We Retrofit Halogen Bulbs

The Illuminators installed LED retrofit bulbs into a customer's existing deck (puck) lights because their halogen bulbs were causing too much heat and caused the fixtures to be hot to the touch. After installing the LED bulbs the customer was happy to report that the heat problem had been solved.
