Viewpoint Lighting is a full service landscape lighting company, with the expertise and capability to handle every aspect of your landscape lighting needs, including pre-planning, design, consultation, installation, troubleshooting, repair, and routine maintenance. We work alone or with your landscaper and/or designer/architect to get the lighting right from the start, saving you the added costs and hassle of disturbing your new landscape to redo your lighting. In existing landscapes and established yards, we can remove existing lighting systems and/or add new lighting while minimizing impact on the plantings and hardscape.

We install only top-quality fixtures, most with at least a 10 year manufacturer's warranty. We stand behind the fixtures as well as the installation, so if you EVER have any problems, we are a phone call away, and will remedy the problem quickly. We will guaranty the installation for at least 10 years as well, so if there is any problem that arises during that time that is the result of improper installation, we will fix it at no charge.

Because we get most of our work from referrals, we establish and maintain a relationship with all customers to make sure they are 100% satisfied. Possibly the most important thing to you is: WE RETURN PHONE CALLS! I have been in the industry long enough to know that contractors are impossible to get a hold of... especially if you are calling about something that they screwed up. That's simply impolite, not to mention unprofessional. I will make every effort to return calls or within 24 hours.

About the owner, Andy Thomas

I have been involved in various aspects of landscaping and landscape lighting ever since I started helping my dad fix sprinklers during the summers as a boy. I learned a great deal about customer service and the green industry from my dad. A Sacramento native, I graduated from El Camino High School and attended American River College before transferring to San Jose State University. During my time at SJSU, and after graduating in 2001, I worked for two landscape materials suppliers in the Bay Area, which is where I was first introduced to landscape lighting. After leaving the distribution side after many years, I started as a sales rep for a landscape lighting manufacturer (FX Luminaire), where my primary responsibilities included setting up on-site evening lighting demonstrations and troubleshooting lighting issues. After almost a year with FX, I decided that I enjoyed working with my hands in the field more than in the office on the phone, so I decided to venture out on my own, designing, installing, and maintaining landscape lighting systems. I learned from my distribution and sales experience that while many landscapers and electricians are willing to install landscape lighting, few actually know what they are doing. When driving around Sacramento, it is easy to notice examples of ineffective or just plain bad lighting. Real hands-on experience in the landscape lighting industry, from the distribution, manufacture, and installation viewpoints has given me the unique perspective needed to be able to create beautifully lighted scenes using top quality fixtures, as well as be able to troubleshoot and maintain installed systems.
