Add Drama to your Nashville Landscape this Season with Outdoor Lighting!

Nashville TN moonlighting used in treesFew seasons bring as much joy as the arrival of spring. Here in Nashville, there is much to see and do. From a visit to the zoo at Grassmere, catching a MusicCity concert, to a stroll through beautiful Cheekwood Estate & Gardens during the Cheekwood in Bloom event. Look around, there’s no place more beautiful and alive than Nashville in the spring.

On the homefront, Nashvillians are busy sprucing up their homes and landscapes in honor of the season. This often includes adding or extending an outdoor living space or revamping the landscape. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville can add drama and enhance the function and beauty of your spring endeavors through the addition of outdoor lighting.

Outdoor lighting serves as a beneficial addition to outdoor spaces such as decks, patios and even children’s play areas such as a treehouse. Through illumination, you are able to increase the safety of a space and in turn, increase the time you can spend enjoying your outdoors. Our Nashville outdoor lighting portfolio is loaded with inspiration for lighting for outdoor living spaces.

When it comes to improving the look and feel of your Nashville landscape — lighting is the answer. From formal gardens, perennial beds, or a complete landscape overhaul, we can add beauty to your investment.

Nashville Landscape Lighting

If you are planning landscape or outdoor living space additions or have a property lacking outdoor lighting, 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 plan in advance.

Even if you don’t plan on adding outdoor lighting right away, we can install sleeves before your hardscapes 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. This proactive approach minimizes on mess and causes less disruption of the landscape. 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 outdoor structures and landscaping. We will come in and evaluate your property and work around existing structures wherever possible–so don’t fret if you forgot to include landscape lighting in your initial plans.

Our recent install at 500fifth takes Nashville residential outdoor lighting to a new level

Nahsville Upscale Apartment Outdoor Lighting

Nashville outdoor lighting at 500fifth.

When you think of Nashville residential outdoor lighting you probably picture a beautiful home in Brentwood or Belle Meade or maybe even a quaint farmhouse nestled among acreage in Middle Tennessee. These images are accurate, and with good reason, because Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville specializes in residential, commercial outdoor lighting and holiday outdoor lighting in the Nashville area. However, with the growing trend in urban residential living, Nashville outdoor lighting is popping up amid all genres of housing. From townhouses, condominiums and even upscale apartments.

Nahsville Upscale Apartment Outdoor Lighting

One of our most recent outdoor lighting projects took place at 500fifth Apartments in downtown Nashville. This upscale complex delivers breathtaking views of the city skyline and offers an easy commute to those working downtown.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville was asked to help make the building’s facade come to life through the addition of lighting. We accomplished this project with understated grace as we used up lighting to create the look and feel they had in mind. Through the use of 3000 degree kelvin/200 watt LED up lighting fixtures mounted on custom brackets the entire front facade of the 500fifth becomes a location you immediately want to know more about. The lighting adds dimension, depth and an air of majesty to the building.

Nahsville Upscale Apartment Outdoor Lighting

On this particular project our goal was to illuminate the front facade of the building. However, on many apartment properties there are other facets on the grounds that can also benefit from the addition of outdoor lighting. This can include, but is not limited to, the property’s common areas such as the pool, parking areas, walkways and clubhouse. We have also had great success illuminating the signage located at the entrance to many of the apartments we have lit. Take a look at the areas we illuminated at The Grove Whitworth apartments in Green Hills, TN…

As you can clearly see, Nashville residential outdoor lighting can benefit all types of homes, from apartments to estates and everything in between!

Your Fall decor will get more mileage with outdoor lighting

Nashville outdoor lighting enhances seasonal outdoor decorAs the season changes, so does the exterior aesthetics of our homes. From the vibrancy of the deep greens and bright blooms of the summer landscape to the subdued hues of amber and gold as leaves begin to change and landscapes welcome autumn. One popular way we pay homage to the changing seasons is through outdoor holiday decor. Many Nashville front porches and entries are brimming with a bounty of harvest-themed decor already. Wreaths adorned with hints of Halloween will soon mingle alongside pumpkins, scarecrows and colorful mums.

Nashville Halloween LightingOutdoor lighting will ensure you home and landscape is full of curb appeal throughout the year, and will also allow you to get more enjoyment from any seasonal outdoor decorating you do. Imagine the impact outdoor lighting will create when paired with the decor and timely plantings around your home’s front entry. Colors will look bolder, textures will have more dimension and all salutations will be easily legible to guest that come to call — and don’t forget about lighting the way for those trick-or-treater’s who are soon to come calling!

In addition to highlighting your outdoor decor landscape lighting, tree lighting and even architectural lighting can also serve as a stage for the changing seasons. As your landscape changes, leaves change hues and blooms emerge, outdoor lighting can help illuminate each moment as it unfolds.

Autumn in Middle TennesseeLighting makes a huge impact as part of your landscape. Landscape lighting can be used to emphasize a fall garden or a line of deciduous trees that transform from jewel tones in the fall to barren branches in the winter.Even the smallest landscape ornamental will change personalities from spring to fall. Although your outdoor lighting stays in the same place, the area it illuminates evolves, as does the scenery.

The benefits of outdoor lighting go well beyond beautification and aesthetic enhancement. Lighting also aids in providing a more safe and secure setting for you and your family to enjoy. This includes having a more secure area to enjoy outdoor activities and relax. Security lighting such as path lighting can even makes the trip to your front door more secure because you no longer have to muddle around at a dark entrance to find your keys or while dropping shopping bags.The addition of lighting will make ease, peace of mind and convenience as a way of life. Experts are also quick to point out that outdoor lighting reduces the chances of falling victim to crime because a well-lit home, or business, is less likely to become the target of a break-in.

Autumn in Middle Tennessee

Although preference of LED over halogen outdoor lighting is really a matter of choice. A higher percentage of our clients opt to go with LED. It is true that LED is more energy-efficient, long-lasting and eco-friendly than traditional outdoor lighting systems; but did you also know LED is more durable? That’s right! LED lighting makes the perfect candidate for outdoor lighting because it holds up better to the harsh elements and the extreme hot and cold of seasonal changes. In additon, since LED is a UV free source of light it is less likely to attract nuisance insects. This means the insects that are drawn to your front porch or outdoor living space by light are reduced making outdoor living more enjoyable for everyone!

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville Can Upgrade or Expand Your Outdoor Lighting, No Matter Who Installed It!

Brentwood TN architectural lightingWe aren’t persnickety about getting the job done at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville. If you want to upgrade, tweak or expand your existing outdoor lighting system, we are up for the task no matter who installed it—even a competitor’s system! That’s right, other lighting contractors may not want to touch outdoor lighting installed by another company, but that’s only because they don’t have the expertise to do it. They are afraid of what they may find or have to deal with, but our techs have seen it all (and have fixed every imaginable problem we have encountered), so it’s a no-brainer for us!

Check out this stately home that we recently took on the challenge of a full architectural and landscape revamp to an existing system. Located in beautiful Brentwood, TN, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville gave this property’s  lighting a whole new jolt of pizzazz by adding more light and giving it a much needed upgrade. As you can see, it has extreme WOW-factor now with a dazzling dance between shadows and light.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville is the ONLY outdoor lighting company in our area that is maintaining systems that we installed 25 years ago! We don’t do outdoor lighting as a sideline other types of work. We aren’t gardeners, landscapers, electricians or irrigation companies that dabble in putting a few fixtures in the ground and adding a timer just to make an extra buck–ALL WE DO IS OUTDOOR LIGHTING!

Our lighting designers and architects are specially trained in the art of casting light in a theatrical and exciting manner. We don’t just shove a fixture in the ground without thought of how light can play up every feature of your home and garden. Everything we do carefully planned and poised to showcase a home’s facades, garden paths, decks, water features, pools, patios and more in a romantic wash of light. We are professional, dependable and we only sell American-made systems and fixtures that will stand the test of time.
