The Creative Nightscapes Story

Creative Nightscapes started in 2004 out of owner Patrick Cheatham’s garage and in the subsequent years has grown to 14 employees, three of which are full-time designers with a combined 35+ years of experience in lighting design. We have completed 7,000+ lighting projects throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.

Patrick graduated from the University of North Texas with a Bachelor of Science degree.

“I love my landscape and home,” Patrick said when asked about why he got into the business. “I wanted to create something beautiful at my home and fell in love with the look outdoor lighting provides.  As a company, we wanted to provide a professional company that homeowners could trust and rely on to do the right thing. Now, after many years and 7,000+ homes and counting, I feel we have achieved that, and keep working hard every day to make sure we take care of our clients.

Every landscape lighting design is a representation of our mission to take care of the clients. We want the outdoor lighting experience to be a wonderful experience both visually and professionally.”

Patrick has been married to his wife for 32 years. They have two children and three grandchildren and love to travel.
