A Family Business

Carolina Outdoor Lighting is a locally owned and operated business in the Asheville, NC area. We treat our clients and employees like family, and work hard to be a positive impact on our community.


Our Mission
At Carolina Outdoor Lighting our mission is to provide landscape lighting for beauty and safety while using top of the line materials, providing quality design and installations while creating long lasting relationships with customers. 

The Carolina Outdoor Lighting Family

We all live in the beautiful Appalachian mountains and more than likely love the outdoors. Landscape lighting tends to bring people outdoors more often. Many people invest in a beautiful landscape which is only enjoyed for a few hours out of the day. Imagine a landscape which is enjoyed in the evening and at night as well. We specialize in design, installation and long term maintenance of our commercial grade low voltage lighting systems.

Jason, Owner of COL, had been landscaping in the Asheville area for 20+ years. He loves designing and installing landscapes, seeing the progress from a dull yard to a yard full of native plants with a variety of colors and textures. However, something was missing. He wanted his landscapes to be enjoyed not only during the day, but also at night. Some of his customers installed spot lights and solar lights along paths which were not advantageously showcasing his designs. So, he went on the hunt for a landscape lighting company which specialized in showcasing elaborate landscapes and beautiful architecture.

He found a few landscapers who also do lighting but we wanted more than that. We wanted a company that focuses on design, uses top of the line fixtures and pays attention to detail. We couldn’t find that company, so we became that company. To our surprise, we found a great contact in Florida, which was recently voted as the top outdoor lighting equipment distributor in the country. This company trained us on ‘everything about landscape lighting’. We drove down to Florida with a basic knowledge in lighting and came back to Asheville as experts. We hit the ground running and we haven’t looked back.

Our Process

Initial Meeting

Jason Warren, co-owner, will meet with you and first listen to your desires, goals and vision. We will walk the ground and locate all landscape and architectural focal points to showcase. Is there a stoic old tree that is particularly beautiful? Do you have a walkway, steps, deck or patio that are in need of illumination for safe passage? Our goal is to add lighting elements that highlight and accentuate your existing space to increase functionality, beauty, safety and even expand your living space!



After we take all measurements and discuss priorities, options and styles with you we will return to our shop and create a formal proposal. We include a detailed description of our plan and offer several options when necessary. We will lay out the details of the project so there are no surprises and will make as many adjustments to the proposal until you are 100% satisfied. In some cases, we will be able to offer an on site estimate and then create a formal proposal with all the details included.


As soon as you are totally satisfied and comfortable with the scope of work and we have approval to move forward, we will order materials and set an installation date. We will have everything in our shop and ready to go by the time our installation date arrives. We use a network of incredible suppliers with great track records and years in the industry, which gives us the ability to assure our clients get a quality product at a fair price. Our process is transparent and easy, and we will keep you posted on where we are with your product, timelines on receipt and when we will be able to get out to your location to get it installed.


Finally, we will install the system and bring your vision to life. We do our best to not disrupt your current landscape. With our background in landscaping we know how to work around trees, flowers and shrubs to not damage roots and growth. Our trenches for wire will be cut into your turf without a trace. Your property will be cleaned up and looking better than when we arrived. We take great pride in leaving your property clean and beautiful, so you can get right to enjoying your space.
