One of the best parts of Christmas in Des Moines is when you get to turn your house and yard into a picture-perfect symphony of light, color, contrast, and beauty against the snow. We know that there might also be some friendly competition among neighbors this time of year (and you want your home to win the “Best Decorated” award), but installing and removing Christmas decorations is both hard and dangerous. That’s why we offer Christmas light hanging service.

Usually, installing and uninstalling Christmas lights require ladders, dexterity, creativity, and a good physical shape. Add cold temperatures, snow falling, and slippery surfaces to the mix and you will soon understand that what might seem like a fun yearly task can turn into a disaster.

Our company works with specialized landscape architects who are trained in Christmas outdoor decorations, installations, and removals at affordable prices. We work in a completely safe environment, as we use the most highly-performing vehicles and tools. We don’t risk falling or slipping, electrocutions, accidents, or failures. On the contrary, our team of experts will provide you with high-end Christmas light hanging service that will highlight the best features of your home and garden, creating a gorgeous lighting design and lifting the holiday spirit.


If you choose to work with our Christmas Light Hanging Service, be assured that our initial step is a thorough evaluation. We will carefully listen to your needs and ideas and throw in some of our creativity into the mix. Once we set the details, our professionals will come down and install the Christmas lights so your entire property becomes a magical land to enjoy with family and friends in Des Moines.

In case you are worried about safety, you should know we carry strong insurance policies and workers’ compensation so everything and everybody on your property is completely secured and protected from the second they arrive to the moment we close the gate behind us.

After the holidays, our Christmas Light Hanging Service doesn’t just stop there. We’re also on hand to come over and expertly uninstall the Christmas lighting and decorations. In case you are interested, we are also specialized in snow removal services, so feel free to take advantage of us and our expertise in the field!

The team at Excel Lawn and Landscape performs lawn mowing and weed control currently. I have peace of mind knowing they take care of my yard and plan to have them help with the fence and landscape in the future. Thank you for helping me gain control of the creeping Charlie in my yard and restore my yard’s curb appeal!

The recent ice storm had the sidewalks and driveway a sheet of ice. They came out twice to treat the areas. I was impressed with not only the work they performed but also that I did not have to call them to remind them. Rarely do I encounter from others the great service Excel provided. I am thrilled I hired them.

I called and they actually answered the phone and it didn’t go to voicemail. They came to see the job and gave me a fair quote and a date when they would be able to do it. The job was completed on time and I’m very happy with the work of the team.

The crew at Excel worked on our front porch retaining wall. They did excellent work, were courteous, prompt in getting the job done, and even came out a few months later just to double-check the wall during cold weather. Thanks for all you did. I will definitely recommend your services.
