JRD Landscape Lighting and Design, Inc.

About JRD Lighting and Jim

My name is James (Jim) Duerr Jr. I am the owner and founder of JRD Landscape Lighting & Design Inc.

Some people go through school with the exact path to take. I was a little different. I did not have that set path until one day I found a job designing and installing outdoor lighting when it was a new concept to landscaping. Shortly after starting this job, I think I was home and found my path.

I have always been a design-build person. At an early age I was building everything from go-carts to kid’s forts. At the age of eight, I found an old camera in a street gutter and that started my photography bug and started me learning concepts of lighting. With a degree from the University of Minnesota in Forestry Management (the outdoors), it grew my interest in landscapes, plants and trees. My three interests came together and I did find my path and have enjoyed every step since.

I found my company JRD Landscape Lighting & Design a few years later when I started craving more design power and pushing the envelope in ideas of outdoor lighting. I wanted to build a company that had created personal relationships with all the clients. Want to deliver the best designed project that would treat every project different and unique. I want to also deliver the best quality products and installation that would last for as long as you live in home. And most of all, I wanted you to love and be happy with the project when it was completed.

I have now been doing outdoor lighting for over twenty years and it has been a great ride. It has given me the opportunities to see wonderful homes, unique projects and has even taken me to other states to install lighting. I have enjoyed every day.

What I try to bring to my clients. My motto from day one has been "Satisfaction Guaranteed". This all started because when I am designing, installing and turning on the lighting for the first time, I am excited. I can’t wait for my client to see it. And, if the same joy is not felt, I want to fix it.

Quality: I believe that outdoor lighting is not cheap. The client is spent hard earned money for this luxury and I must deliver in quality. It the lighting does not hold up our harsh climate, then I failed and I am not going to get that personal relationship I desire. Quality has always described JRD Landscape Lighting & Design.
