There is no doubt that outdoor lighting for your home and garden delivers a unique setting and atmosphere that dramatically changes your landscape in the evening. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville can help you turn your outdoor living areas into an enchanted retreat filled with endless romantic ambiance. Why go out to a crowded restaurant on February 14th, when instead we can turn your patio or deck into an exquisite spot for a dinner for two? We can elegantly swathe fiesta lights overhead so that you can enjoy an evening under the stars with the feel of a fancy European restaurant. Best of all, it’s permanent—so it’s the gift of light that is continually making memories night after night.

No matter what your outdoor lifestyle is, we can maximize on it with customized lighting. If your backyard is where all the parties and barbeques happen, or where the family likes to toss the ball around and hang out by the pool, or if it’s just a quiet retreat to dine and enjoy the evening air by the fireplace—we can ensure the fun can continue well after dusk. We use only high quality, American made fixtures and the thickest wiring in the industry to ensure high value and a system with longevity.

Best of all we can work within your budget and design a customized design that won’t break the bank and it increases the value of your home.

Endless benefits abound with Nashville backyard lighting!

backyard gazebo lightingThe best way to make your backyard look and feel like an outdoor oasis is to think about your illumination plan BEYOND the front door. If all you have is a light at your entryway and a few fixtures casting a harsh light on your home’s façade and a blaring flood light on your driveway–you are missing out a whole outdoor lighting experience that can enhance your outdoor lifestyle tremendously!

Hardworking families are spending more and more hours at the office, doing homework and running around with endless activities—and most people don’t get home until well after the sun has set. The only way to nurture time with family and friends after dusk is by lighting up the areas in your backyard you enjoy spending time.  Make your outdoor space just as useable as your indoor spaces by thinking of your outdoor landscape illumination in the same you do about inside lighting.

LandscapeLightingLots of people seem to ignore their backyards as an extension of real estate that is available for evening entertaining with their family and friends. It’s possible to light up the entire perimeter of your property and make your deck or patio a place that is just as comfortable and welcoming as your living room thanks to an outdoor lighting scheme that will make your outdoor spaces highly functional. Why sit cooped inside with the kids when everyone can be having just as much fun outdoors and getting a good dose of fresh air? Get everyone off the computer and TV and get everyone outside for family bonding and memories.

GardenPathLightsOur energy-efficient LED outdoor lighting uses very little power and brings in plenty of light so that you can hang out doing all the things your family loves to do like playing a game of football on the lawn, some Scrabble by the fire pit or dining al’ fresco while Dad is flipping burgers under some good task lighting at the grill. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville’s outdoor lighting systems are programmable, so they are designed to work to fit your lifestyle. We place lights where you need them so you can make the most out of each backyard zone that your family and friends hang out. We can drape decorative festival lighting across large expanses such as your patio or deck so that you’ve got good overhead lighting that is both elegant and practical.

Nashville Landscape Lighting

We also go beyond just pathway, task and façade lighting, too. We have artistic lights that add incredible drama and personality to your evenings as well. Even if it’s raining or cold outside, you can enjoy a gorgeous view of your wonderful backyard from your windows. We can highlight special features such as a water feature, your pool, an outdoor sculpture or a fabulous ornamental tree.

Good outdoor lighting changes the way you live, brings your family outdoors to gather and gives you added space to enjoy what feels a lot like a stay-cation when you get home from work and school. Let Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville create a relaxing outdoor oasis of relaxation in your backyard through romantic outdoor lighting! You can call us at (615) 373 – 0638, or by emailing us at: olpnashville@outdoorlights.com.

Selling your home in the New Year? Outdoor Lighting Adds Plenty of Evening Curb Appeal to Turn Heads!

House for saleAre you thinking of listing your home for sale?

Whether you are thinking of selling your home due to relocation, or you are ready to upgrade (or even downsize) your existing residence, the addition of outdoor lighting at your home can help bring your listing into the “best light” and spark interest with potential buyers!

We’re early in the home selling season, which typically heats up from spring through mid-summer, but you can get a jump on adding curb appeal now so that you can be ready to make a lasting first impression when the buyers pull into your driveway. Since days are still short and the evenings come early, you need to be ready to make a big impact after the sun sets since most buyers will visit your property after work when it’s nightfall. You certainly don’t want potential buyers to come up to a home drenched in darkness, so investing in landscape lighting will have them seeing everything in clear light.

Nashville outdoor lightingThe addition of outdoor lighting adds curb appeal!

Entice the attention of prospective buyers with lighting ambiance that adds dazzle to your garden beds and elicits a wonderful sense of warmth, charm and elegance.  Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville can also illuminate your For Sale yard sign so that it’s visible even at night when people are driving by. If your home looks appealing at nightfall, there is a good chance that a potential purchaser will want to make an appointment to tour it during the day.

Your buyers are likely working a day job and commuting, so they will need to see your home at night for the first time, so make certain your property is attractive and well-lit. You want to ensure that your home is clearly visible from the street as we know that many potential buyers decide right on your driveway whether or not they want to actually go in. Adding landscape lighting stages the outside of your property at night very similarly to the way indoor staging does, and architectural lighting helps bring the details of your home to center stage. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville will work within your budget and provide you with an outdoor lighting plan that gives your property appeal well into the evening hours. We will show off the roofline of your home, the façade and front door; we will illuminate your flower beds, the patio, your walkways and all the interesting facets your property has to offer so they can visualize what their outdoor lifestyle can be if they buy your home.

Belle Meade architectural LED lighting and tree lighting by Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of NashvilleMake sure buyers are easily able to get around your property to check out all the benefits your home has to offer and how they can see themselves living there. If your home looks extraordinary in the twilight hours, they will be excited about making a follow-up appointment to see your home during the day. Good landscape illumination also makes your house look larger in the backdrop of the night sky — enhancing the depth and width. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville will set you up with an expert lighting designer that will showcase your home’s features such as a back deck, gazebo or a two-story front porch in its best light.  Your tree canopies will be lit up and ready to pique the interest of lookers, and we will add sparkle to every corner of your property to give it a grander perspective of size. We can take a pool, water feature or pond and give it immense depth and elegance, too!

There is still time to plan a trip to see some of Nashville’s best holiday lighting!

outdoor holiday lighting by Outdoor Lighting PerspectivesPart of what make the holidays such a magical time of year is, of course, seeing all the houses in and around Nashville all aglow in their holiday splendor! Since many of us are still on holiday from work and school, now is the perfect time to grab the family and head out to see the enchantment of the holiday.

According to a recent article featured in StyleBlueprint some of the most festive residential holiday outdoor lighting displays of the season are closeby in Hillsboro West End (HWEN).  The article lists some of the most admirable displays to add to your “must see” list:

Don’t Make Lighting Your New Landscape an Afterthought

Nashville backyard lightingDon’t Make Lighting Your New Landscape an Afterthought — Proactive Planning with a New Outdoor Lighting System Makes all the Difference.

If you are planning on building a home, installing landscape or outdoor living space additions or have a property without any outdoor landscape lighting, then we can design a system from scratch and lay everything out. It’s always best to include your outdoor lighting architect in your home-build or landscape renovation projects upfront so that we can work in tandem with your contractor to take advantage of the construction phase. Being proactive can save you money and hassle later when it comes time to determine where power and fixtures need to be if you can if you’ve put it into the plans in advance.

Nashville Outdoor Lighting MaintenanceEven if you don’t plan on putting in outdoor lighting right away, we can install sleeves before your driveways, sidewalks, patios and other structures are poured or built. Sleeves allow wiring to easily be passed through at any time instead of having to dig under existing hardscape like concrete.  It minimizes on mess later in terms of disrupting or moving your plants, shrubs and trees because accessibility is made easy. It also helps in case you have an issue with wiring later on as it can be quickly serviced or replaced through the same sleeve.

Of course, we are always happy to work around your existing home structure and landscaping as well. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville will come in and evaluate your property plot and work around existing structures wherever possible and even dig under them if necessary to get the look you want to achieve–so don’t fret if you forgot to include landscape lighting in your initial plans.

You can consult with one of our outdoor lighting designers and they will ask you questions about your outdoor lifestyle and how you like to dine, play and entertain outside. Not only will we illuminate the façade of your home, entryway and driveway; but we can also add lighting to your backyard so that your deck and patio can handle some serious entertainment and family time. We can give your pool, water features and outdoor living spaces the royal treatment so they can be enjoyed at any hour of the night. If you love lawn games, we can give your family and friends plenty of visibility to toss around the football or enjoy a game of cornhole well into the evening. If late night grilling or cooking in your outdoor kitchen is the standard in your household, we can provide you with task lighting so you can tell when the steaks are done without having to bring them inside to check.

Nashville magical backyard lighting

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville doesn’t slow down during the winter months; in fact, we are busier than ever. The cooler temperatures provide a great time for landscape additions as plants are dormant, and the dark evenings means outdoor lighting is more welcomed than ever. Let’s sit down and discuss designing  the ideal outdoor lighting for your home and property for season after season of enjoyment!

Chase away the winter blues with beautiful backyard views through outdoor lighting!

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives tree lightingIf you are looking out your home’s back windows and there is a dark void, you are missing a fabulous opportunity to extend the dimension, depth and view of your backyard through the use of professional landscape lighting. Wouldn’t you rather see your entire backyard elegantly illuminated so you can still enjoy it on a cool night while you are sitting in the comfort of your home with a good book in your hand?

Many of our customers come to us only thinking about adding outdoor landscape lighting to the front of their home, or only adding architectural lighting to their home’s front facade. However, there is a big missed opportunity right out your living room and kitchen windows where the addition of outdoor lighting would benefit. A lifeless winter landscape can get a good dose of drama with outdoor lighting that can make every season look like an evening postcard from your windows. We can uplight your tree branches to give them an exciting and ethereal look that will make them dazzle even though they are bare of leaves. We can even add a downlit moonlight effect that can make your lawn shimmer and play up interesting shadows.

Outdoor lighting enhances your landscape during all seasons!

Outdoor lighting enhances your landscape during all seasons!

Backyard landscape lighting can unify your garden beds and make the perimeter of your property seem much larger than it actually is. We can illuminate walking paths, arbors and arches to give them a fairytale appeal that makes you wonder what could be on the other side. We can give your patio or hardscape a theatrical feel by casting a wash of light on stone or brick so that your yard bounces with texture. We can also make a water feature, outdoor fireplace or even a beloved outdoor sculpture pop in the dark of night so that it stands out and can be appreciated at all hours.

trellis_lighting_by_Outdoor_Lighting_Perspectives-300x225At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville we feel there is no reason to have a boring back yard when the opportunity to make a splashy effect can be appreciated during every season of the year. You and your family can enjoy the first blooms of spring, the colorful riot of leaves turning scarlet and gold in autumn and the hauntingly beautiful branches of barren trees dancing in the winter wind. You can also watch the wildlife that inhabits your backyard in the evening hours. Relish in a gorgeous back landscape whether you are indoors or out by always showcasing a fabulous view from any window in your home to the delight of your family and visitors.

Christmas at the Capitol 2015 Glows Brightly With This Norway Spruce!

Beautiful photo taken by Greg Pirtle. Christmas at the Capitol 2015.

Beautiful photo taken by Greg Pirtle. Christmas at the Capitol 2015.

We must be doing something quite right at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville because we were asked for the 4th year to in a row to illuminate the Christmas tree at the capitol in downtown Nashville! We were immensely flattered and humbled that Music City had entrusted us with such an immense honor, and we couldn’t wait to make this year another bright one for our hometown of Nashville.

Details about this year’s tree:

This year’s Christmas conifer came to us via Theresa and Jimmy Carter of Old Hickory. They were the proud owners of the Norway Spruce evergreen they planted in 2001 that is now over 30 feet tall. The tree simply got too big for their property so they submitted their desire to the governor’s office to cut the tree down to use for the Nashville Christmas tree lighting celebration. A year later they discovered that their tree was in fact selected to their elation. It was then our job at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville to make sure the Carter tree was lit up in a magical way to show it off in the best possible way and make Nashville proud.

We wrapped red, silver and gold string lights on this year’s tree that added up to miles of illumination. The Norway Spruce was then capped off with a mega sized star. Tanya Tucker rocked the Capitol with her hits and festive Christmas songs; and when the First Lady and Governor Haslam pushed the button the crowd went wild with excitement. The shouts of “WOW!” and “COOL!” are really what make this project so worthwhile for us in the end. Delighting kids and adults alike are what this season is all about for us, and we simply can’t wait to do it all over again next year if the opportunity arises. You can go to Legislative Plaza and check out the Carter Tree and our lighting handiwork for the entire holiday season!

Though the lighting of the Christmas tree at the Capitol is a mega sized project for Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville, we do small projects every day at regular residences and businesses just like yours and ours. Not everything is always on such a grand scale, and we are happy to do fabulous job on a budget that fits your needs and lifestyle. We treat every single project we do with the same enthusiasm, energy and level of professionalism. We work on projects all year long and not just in warm weather, so if you need a brand new outdoor lighting system or an addition to your current landscape lighting scheme—we are eager to talk to you about your ideas.
