The Intensive Course (IC) is the most exhaustive and comprehensive training regarding landscape lighting. Landscape lighting is one of the most challenging aspects of lighting design: you’re working in an open space, in a constantly growing environment submitted to the elements and affected by seasonal change. However, overcoming all these challenges makes it even more rewarding for the designer, and the IC provides the tools to understand how to successfully overcome these obstacles and create a safe, enjoyable night environment.

This 5-day, 5-evening class is lead by internationally acclaimed lighting designer Janet Lennox Moyer who directs a team of more than eighteen instructors. The student – instructor ratio is almost one to one. A series of lectures, demonstrations, presentations and a lot of hands-on field work using all major manufacturers’ equipment will allow you to create a great visual composition.

Once you’ve completed the class, you’ll be able to create beautiful landscape lighting compositions, correctly install the equipment required to create your design, have the understanding and tools to document the system to ensure its longevity, and know the steps to properly maintain the equipment over time.


The culmination of your learning experience in the Intensive Course is a landscape lighting project designed and realized by you and your fellow attendees. In teams of six, you design, specify, install and aim a full-scale mock-up project in an area of illi Park. On your final night at illi, your team presents your work to your “clients” during a celebratory evening attended by guests and the general public. Here are a few photos of our group project work performed in October 2014.

“Dave and his crew are very friendly and knowledgeable, never hesitating to answer any of my questions. From the planning, to the installation, to the clean-up and then to the testing of all the zones, Dave and his crew completed my irrigation system efficiently, neatly, and flawlessly. They worked very long hours in a yard that had its challenges to complete the work in a very timely manner. Upon completion, Dave took the time to familiarize me with all the functions of the control panel before leaving. It was a pleasure to have a crew that takes great pride in their work. I highly recommend Turf Pro!”

“Dave and his crew have cared for our property for over 10 years. Over that time, they have done an outstanding job both in maintaining our property and a number of construction projects. Due to the excellent care that our property has received, we have been nominated and have won a number of Trillium Awards. Great Job!!”

“We have had the pleasure of working with Turf Pro. Turf Pro is one of the very few contractors that use above standard materials for all projects. The design, engineering & thought process is fantastic. Our work and Turf Pro complement each other. All the work is engineered with taste and photo mastery, it is all about detail and beautiful landscaping. Whether a small project or a larger scale design, Dave and his crew are certainly the correct professionals to use!”

Michael Finlan

“This was my first experience dealing with Dave and his crew from Turf Pro Ltd. They did some spring pruning and general yard maintenance for my property. My husband and I are avid gardeners but some of our trees and shrubs were overgrown. Dave and his crew are passionate about their work. This shows in their attention to detail. My gardens look meticulous now and the shape and structure of my Japanese maples, Chinese flowering dogwoods and various hydrangeas is back. Dave is knowledgeable, reliable and responsive. I highly recommend this company.”
