About Us

Direct Lighting Outdoor Lifestyle brings to you access and expertise of items that are not ordinarily found in the USA - let alone in the world - all under the same roof. 

We were once in your shoes where the value of the product was never justified, struggling to find a distributor that offered us exceptionally unique and quality product at a competitive rate. So, true to our motto "QUALITY OVER MARGIN", we thought – “There must be a faster, cheaper and easier way to sell jobs as a contractor!” We want to show you a few quick (but not dirty) ways to add a couple $1,000's more to your job bids.

We have spent years searching, questioning, seeking, living with, adjusting, and documenting past jobs, cities, states, trade shows, and professionals alike, carefully curating categories of items that we can make strong arguments for.
For landscape designers, contractors, and interior designers, we've specifically collected items that you need and items that you didn’t even know you needed. This is important because we want you to have the "Aha!" moment where you realize that your opportunities to make money are not limited to your job title.

We hear it all the time and have made it a goal of ours to get a specific reaction from Guys/Husbands “I cannot bring my wife here”. (Our show room in San Marcos, CA). To us, this is the greatest compliment. We know who should be making those decisions in your household, It tells us we're doing something right. We are the final touches’, the jewelry that enhances everything it surrounds.

Lights, Sound, Yard Art, Water Features, Artificial Rocks and Flowers that are designed for the elements of the outdoors. Small items and focal points all coming together, to formulate your own back yard resort. Buy Direct and save on many of our items. It is our mission to provide top notch warrantied product at extremely competitive prices.

Nate started in landscape lighting full time in 1989 installing tens of thousand of fixtures. In that time, he developed the first Multi-Tap transformer for landscape lighting, changing the industry forever. So this product started to sell through irrigation distributors, which led Nate to start Unique Lighting Systems in 1995. Unique Lighting system quickly became the industry leader with close to 20 Patents leading the way. Nate sold the company to Toro in 2011 and, after taking a few years off, Nate is back innovating again.
