Our owner, Daryl Bentfield, is dedicated to being actively involved in every single design, working hand in hand with our installation team to ensure every landscape lighting system meets his high standards of visual appeal and performance.

Larry the Line Layer Buries Cable

The L2 Line Layer utilizes a unique, trenchless, reciprocating motion similar to an industrial sewing machine. It is unlike other underground installation methods such as standard vibratory cable & pipe plows and trenchers.

The L2 Line Layer’s precision cutting plow blade produces a barely visible slit in the ground while simultaneously burying the desired lines.  We are the only company in the Middle TN area with this machine utilizing this 50 year old technology.
