Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville reminds you that spring is the perfect time to think about outdoor lighting maintenance

Spring is the perfect time to schedule your outdoor lighting maintenance.

Since the official arrival of warmer temperatures and longer days residents all over the Nashville area are busy sprucing up their landscapes. In anticipation of spending more of their free time outdoors, homeowners are also performing maintenance on their outdoor living areas. This maintenance can mean washing, sealing or painting your deck, refurbishing any mulched or pine needled borders or beds, and even adding splashes of color throughout your landscape by installing annuals. Spring is the perfect time to renew and refresh your outdoor spaces to maximize beauty and function. Now is also the perfect time to schedule the annual maintenance of your outdoor lighting system to ensure they are in proper working order to enjoy throughout the outdoor living season.

A well-lit deck or patio will enable you to use your outdoor space long after the sun sets.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville stays on trend with the hottest outdoor lighting techniques

Tree lighting by Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville

The ethereal illumination of proper moon lighting is achieved by using multi-layering throughout the trees canopy

One of the hottest trends in outdoor living design is outdoor lighting. Outdoor lighting procures a safe and secure environment around your home but in addition also provides loads of aesthetic value. A recent post by HGTV Remodels indicates the market demand for outdoor lighting is on the rise. They also point out four outdoor lighting techniques that can deliver the effect most homeowners are looking for. These are up lighting, down lighting, zonal lighting and moonlighting. Now, to someone who is not familiar with outdoor lighting terminology, these types of outdoor lighting can sound like a foreign language. In order to get the most out of your outdoor lighting it is important to become familiar with these lighting techniques so you and your professional lighting specialist will be on the same page.

Nashville uplighting

We used up lighting on this home to accentuate the width and depth of the home and bring out special features such as the columns.

Up lighting – this lighting technique is used in both architectural and landscape lighting applications. We use up lighting to accentuate the height, width and depth of your home. This lighting technique is also used within the landscape to add drama and focus to trees, and other areas of interest in the landscape.

Down lighting – down lighting plays upon the same principles as up lighting. Down lighting can be used as an innovative way to enhance your home’s architectural features. Down lighting is also the most widely used technique to illuminate walkways and pathways. Down lighting can promote safety along the most frequented areas around your home and within your yard.

Focal point lighting – focal lighting such as focal tree lighting, waterfall lighting and statuary lighting is the best way to highlight an area or object of beauty in your landscape. Our exclusive focal point lighting uses soft washes of light to enhance your object or space. This technique ensures your eye is drawn to the object we are illuminating rather than the light source itself.

Moonlighting – this appropriately named lighting technique mimics the effects of the light present during a full moon. A combination of up lighting and down lighting is used to create this hauntingly beautiful technique. We often design moonlighting within trees in the landscape to not only illuminate the tree in a unique way, but also the area that surrounds the tree.  Dramatic shadowing and ambient light combine to create moonlighting that is a work of art.

Garden and landscape lighting includes statuary lighting

Focal point lighting works beautifully when lighting statuary or other areas of interest in your landscape.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville is the area’s oldest and best known professional outdoor lighting company.

Choosing the right tree and the right lighting element are key to beautiful tree lighting.

Nashville hackberry tree lighting

We lit the driveway with moonlights in the trees along the right side of this driveway for drama in the evening.

Trees are one of the most important parts of a beautiful landscape. They offer shade, screening, create a focal point of interest and serve as a backdrop of inspiration to other landscaping and outdoor structures. One way to create a landscape that sizzles with beauty and visual interest is to entail the use of tree lighting into your outdoor lighting design. In the Nashville area trees are among many of our scenic treasures and we have become experts at helping homeowners decide the perfect specimen tree in their landscape as a candidate for lighting.

Our tree lighting formula can accentuate the height, width and  canopy of the tree. What elements we include into lighting your individual conifer all depend on the tree itself. The shape, size and spread of the trees branches can come to life at night easily with the use of one or more of our tree lighting elements. In our experience the trees that benefit the most from tree lighting and make the most impact, or “bang for your buck”, if you will, are trees with spreading canopies. Trees that offer full spread or “vase” canopies, which means the branches spread upright,  also some weeping species make the best trees to light in your landscape. With spreading canopies, there is more room to play the light up and down through the limbs of the canopy itself. Bushier, thick limbed,  columnar trees offer little room for enhancement through tree lighting.

Nashville tree lighting

We lit the entry to this driveway from the ginkgo tree, which is a focal point of this landscape.

Moonlighting is also a viable option in tree lighting that uses the upper branches of the tree to cast light into the lower branches to light a path, or other point of interest in correlation with the tree itself. The term “moonlighting” itself lends to thoughts of mystery and romance, and that is exactly the type of light moonlighting emits. A type of unforgettable light that uses depth to cast a glow full of ambiance and haunting beauty.

If you are wondering which trees you may have in your yard that would make perfect candidates for tree lighting, we have compiled a summary of some of the trees that we often see here in the Nashville area that look beautiful with the addition of outdoor tree lighting.  Many varieties of Maples,  Oaks , Ginkgo trees and ornamental cherry trees definitely fit the bill. Other good species include  the Hackberry, Elms and Birch trees. If you are fortunate enough to have one of the weeping varieties of trees like weeping Birches, weeping Maples and  weeping Cherry trees  their unique form and branching can become a focus of drama  in your landscape with tree lighting.

Specimens with spreading, or complimentary, canopies make the best candidate for tree lighting in your landscape.

When adding an enhancement for outdoor living this Spring, don’t get left in the dark.

Nashville deck lighting

This deck is all ready for use this spring, with outdoor lighting and freshly planted trees abound with blooms, welcome.

Spring is a time for renewal. The winter world around us comes to life, from the green of the forest to the newborn wildlife that open their eyes to a new world. Spring is also a time when homeowners spring to life after a long winter of staying indoors. Many homeowners set their sights on creating an outdoor oasis to enjoy time outdoors for the upcoming season. This interest can include adding outdoor living spaces such as decks, patios or even a garden trellis to take in the beauty of a newly planted landscape up close. Many homeowners plan to add a pool or spa to their home and landscape this time of year, so the structure will be “swim ready” just in time for warm weather. Whatever your inspiration or intention is for the upcoming spring, outdoor lighting will enhance your chosen endeavor. Outdoor lighting will enable you to swim longer, play longer and relax longer by giving you the opportunity to utilize your outdoor area well into the night. The time to plan your outdoor lighting comes at the same time you plan your outdoor improvement- from the very beginning.

A well-lit deck makes it all come together beautifully.

Having your outdoor lighting professional present from the planning stages along with your contractor can make a huge difference in the fluidity of your entire design. We specialize in working hand-in-hand with landscapers, and builders to make sure your completed outdoor living enhancement is a true masterpiece. The benefit from early communication within the planning means that we can run the lines for your outdoor lighting while the ground is already disturbed from the building process. In essence this makes the task more exact and also ensures no disturbances or damage is caused by waiting to call on your outdoor lighting representative after your structure is completed. This also means less wait time. When you are ready to dive into your new pool, or enjoy a cookout on your new deck, it will be “lights, camera, action” because your outdoor lighting is ready when you are.

Having the added convenience of a properly lit outdoor structure will add security, expanded enjoyment and beauty to the structure as a whole. The ambiance of outdoor lighting playing off the water adds to the imagery to make it more desirable. Fantasy often mimics reality and pool lighting is just one aspect of where the ambiance of outdoor lighting can enhance your entire experience of how your outdoor structure functions.

Our LCA technology gets you out of the dark and adds confidence to your lifestyle

The House

A safe house is a well-lit house. LCA makes this possible from driveway to den.

Do you cringe when entering your driveway and garage area late at night because you know you will have to fumble to find that back door key in the minimal moonlight? Do you worry that your home will become a target for thieves while you and your family are away on summer vacation? If these scenarios sound familiar to you then Outdoor Lighting  of Nashville can help. Our lighting control automation, or LCA, technology can make you life easier and offer you the conveniences that you never dreamed possible.

One of the features that is available with our LCA technology is what we refer to as ” the driveway sensor”. This feature puts an end to coming home to a dark house and can’t find the keys situation you may be finding yourself in. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville programs the lights to automatically come on when you enter your driveway at night. Not only are you ensured safe passage right to your door, but we can program the feature to automatically turn on any multitude of chosen exterior and interior lights as well. This will safely take you from the top of the driveway to the safety of your home interior after a hard day with no worry or struggle, just peace of mind.

Another wonderful feature we offer is what we call “someone’s home”. This feature can be programmed with both your interior and exterior lights to give the appearance that someone is home, by simultaneously cutting on both indoor and outdoor lighting to mimic the pattern in correspondence with someone walking around their home at night. These lights are programmed so if the home is being watched, no one is the wiser, and your home is safe while you and your family is away having fun.

A great feature we offer using LCA technology is called the “safe entry” feature. This feature works much like the driveway sensor feature, the difference is the technology is programmed into a key fab you can place on your key chain to turn on both interior and exterior lighting at the simple touch of a button.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville proudly offers these LCA features  and many more to our valued outdoor lighting customers to make their lives hassle free, and their home safer. Remember: a well-lit home is a safer home indeed.

Stunning outdoor lighting makes a grand entrance even grander at this Nashville estate

In Nashville, there are many beautiful custom-built, custom designed homes that some would describe as estates or mansions. Among homes of this prestige, outdoor lighting must be as prestigious in its design and execution to enhance the multitude of precise design details that go along with a home and landscape this timeless. Mansion lighting, or estate lighting takes an experienced lighting professional that can turn a residence that is already breathtaking during the day into a property that is even more breathtaking at night.

Nashville_mansion_lighting

Professional outdoor lighting can add an air of refinement and prestige to any home

Illuminating a mansion or estate can be a daunting task when you take into consideration the  size and elaborate architectural details of a residence of this size. From larger lots with more landscape details, larger entrances, longer driveways, and more windows, the list of focal points to illuminate can become quite long. We start all our lighting designs with assessing the home’s height, width, texture and depth to illuminate and enhance the home’s facade and architectural details. We then move into designing the landscape lighting and using proper placement and selection of fixtures to make gardens and landscaping come to life under the blanket of the night sky. Most of the time, homes of this prestige and quality contain pools, and custom outdoor structures which we pay special attention to enhance  through illumination along with the home and landscape. An outdoor oasis combined with a pool, spa or hot tub becomes an “at home spa” under the trance of pool and water feature lighting.

Pool lighting paired with mansion and estate lighting this beautiful makes you want to dive right in

When we get the opportunity to add illumination to an already stunning property the effect and ambiance outdoor lighting creates mingled together with an illustrious upscale home  is a match made in heaven. We combine all the facets of quality outdoor lighting in order to present homeowners of mansions and estates a  truly unique and custom lighting design. We can incorporate all the parts of your home that are worthy of making heads turn. Along with making your home more beautiful, outdoor lighting also gives you added security and peace of mind. According to many law enforcement agencies research shows that a well-lit home is less likely to be broken into.
