Our own Bob Lyons Sr. goes live on the airways with endless ideas for making this Christmas the merriest!

podcast-logo-Porch Ideas NetworkOutdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville was filling the airwaves last week when our own Bob Lyons Sr. was featured on Porch Ideas Network via podcast with Mary and Dave. The segment featured Christmas Light Decorating Ideas for Your Front Porch and Yard and secrets on creating wonderful holiday light displays and installing outdoor Christmas lights safely.

This informative and fun segment covered every area of holiday lighting, including choosing the colors you like best and desired location of your display. Here’s a peek:

“What you first have to decide is what color you want to use or whether you want to use all white or clear. And then you have to decide whether you want to augment it with different features like starbursts, wreaths, garland, or other holiday decorations.” 

“Then you have to decide if it’s better to concentrate on one area of your yard or porch (and do it really well) or broaden out (and possibly not do as good a job overall).”

The variety of colored LED lighting used in holiday lighting displays was also covered at great length during the segment. In addition, proper spacing of holiday lighting, power requirements, tree wrap holiday lighting and how we combine strings of lights for a cohesive effect were all hot topics!

We can’t divulge ALL our secrets! But you can listen to the full audio program with Bob Lyons Sr. for more lighting tips.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville lights the capital tree in Nashville for the second consecutive year!

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville was chosen to light the Nashville Capital Christmas tree for the second consecutive year. Our diligent efforts came to fruition as the Governor, Bill Haslam and his wife, Crissy, kicked off Christmas in the capital with the annual tree lighting ceremony this past Monday.

The tree selected as this year’s Capital Tree is 55-foot Norway Spruce chosen from the Cumberland Forest, where the University of Tennessee uses the roughly 8,000 acres of land for research, due to a storm that hit Nashville a few years ago. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville is using over one mile of lights to illuminate this majestic tree via an 80 ft. articulated lift to ensure every light is placed in the perfect spot to shine brightest. We are also topping this beauty with a three-foot jeweled star as the finishing touch.

WBIR-TV out of Eastern Tennessee recently aired a segment outlining the selection of the majestic tree chosen as this year’s annual Christmas conifer. The WBIR article pointed out that up until this year, the state capitol had been using a donated tree.  This year’s  tree was carefully selected from the Cumberland Forest after it was used in a University of Tennessee study on growing Christmas trees on abandoned strip mines where it was planted as part of the study back in 1985.

In 2009, when a windstorm blew over the capitol Christmas tree and urgent help was needed  for a replacement, the Cumberland Forest was there to lend a hand. Upon receiving the news, they immediately began looking around the property and submitted a few pictures of some trees that could serve as a quickly needed replacement.
