About Texas Outdoor Lighting

Texas Outdoor Lighting was founded in 2007 by Joel & Beth Mayor out of their first home in Kyle. Working out of an old blue Saturn sedan, our company had very humble beginnings working anywhere we could around Central Texas. Fast forward 10 years and we now have 10 employees and a fleet of commercial vehicles and trailers to install projects all over the Lone Star State and service our clients’ properties. We have done our best to maintain our integrity, honesty, top notch customer service and best looking lighting designs over the years, no matter whether it’s a $3000 install or a $300,000 project.
