Our Approach

We at Moonlight Illumination take a no-nonsense approach to our outdoor lighting and audio services. It can be difficult to find honest, reliable, and professional contractors out there these days. So we strive to be standard-setters for our industry, rather than trend-followers. Here are just some of the ways that we do this.

  • Honest and upfront pricing and estimates. Whether you are looking for a 5-light package, an entire backyard lighting project, or a new audio system installation, we are able to give you upfront pricing after a short visit with you discussing the scope and goals of your project.
  • No compromise on quality. We don't cut corners when it comes to our products and installation. The most important aspects of any low-voltage system are the power source, the connections, and the fixtures. Here in the Midwest we subject our lighting systems to the harshest of conditions, so we know how important selecting and properly installing quality products are for the duration and longevity of your investment.
  • Personability. As a locally-owned small business, we have a relatively small team. Our employees are career professionals who happen to love the green industry. We like who we work with, and we believe you will too.

Our Story

Moonlight Illumination was birthed out of a landscape design-build company who had a team of people passionate about lighting. To this day, we work closely together on many projects, drawing from one another's professional experience and knowledge.

Founder and owner, Shawn Racine, installed his first landscape lighting system almost a decade ago, and became enamored with the powerful effect of lighting to provide evening ambience, safety, security, and curb appeal. To this day, Shawn is one of the lead landscape lighting and audio designers.
