Daryl Bentfield
President & Lighting Designer

Meet Daryl, a seasoned professional with two decades of experience orchestrating some of the most epic concerts worldwide. Originally hailing from Minnesota, Daryl made the bold move to Music City, USA, in 2009 to expand his horizons in production. Along the way, he found not just professional success but also personal fulfillment, tying the knot with his best friend and partner in crime, Gina, in 2019. Together, they set up camp in the charming town of Burns, TN, ready to embrace whatever adventures came their way.

But as the whirlwind year of 2020 swept in, Daryl felt the winds of change blowing in a new direction. Seeking guidance from the cosmic forces above (or maybe just a really strong gut feeling), he pivoted his career aspirations toward something truly illuminating: architectural and landscape lighting.

With his wealth of experience and newfound passion, Daryl is ready to shine a light on your world, bringing creativity, professionalism, and a whole lot of fun to every project he touches.

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.
