Our approach to a greener workplace promotes sustainability, which affects our world on a global level.

Nowadays, everyone you talk to is discussing the importance of living in a world where sustainability practices are key to preserving our environment on a global level. Small changes in the way you live and function on a daily basis can impact the entire planet in the big scheme of things. This includes the way you function on a professional level as well. Discussing the importance of sustainable living practices is one thing, but ” talking the talk” and “walking the walk” is another. Outdoor Living Perspectives of Nashville is instilling sustainable practices in our everyday professional duties in an effort to make a habit out of trying to better our lives and the lives of our grandchildren in years to come.

We offer our clients a way to invest in tomorrow through the use of “green” outdoor lighting technologies such as LED and LCA, (lighting control automation), so we,along with our parent company, and our local manufacturing company ( B&B Mfg.), are practicing what we preach about sustainable living practices. We are operating under a “green” approach to our workplace by recycling materials such as copper fixtures. We also recycle all the paper in our office and our goal is to allocate a paperless system in the near future by incorporating tablets with each of our field workers. We are also moving towards an automatic bill pay system so we save paper by not having to send out invoices each month. We are installing solar panels on our building as well, to reflect the importance of less impact on the environment by reducing power consumption.

Solar_Panels_LR_5

We are installing solar panels on our building to decrease energy usage in our workplace, and lessen our direct impact on the environment.

By working in a field of expertise, such as outdoor lighting, that now has the technology to offer homeowners a more sustainable living product, such as an upgradeable LED bulbs that never get discarded in a land-fill but can be refurbished to reuse, it is a real “no-brainer” to begin at the core of our business. The workplace. Hopefully, each employee, delivery-person, and individual whom frequents our office will have these sustainability practices “rub off” on he/she and take a little piece of that realization back home with them creating a ripple-effect of sustainability initiatives to live by.  Remember, that what we do today, will affect tomorrow.

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.

A mesmerizing holiday outdoor lighting display that inspires you is unforgettable.

The holiday season is now in full swing, and many homeowners have their homes, lawns and landscapes adorned with awe-inspiring outdoor holiday lighting. Many people only choose to illuminate their home and landscapes for the holiday season, foregoing a chance to capture the ambiance and feeling that year-round outdoor lighting can add to your most precious of investments. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville is here to make your property more magical each and every evening, not just during Christmas, with outdoor lighting.

The addition of lighting a specific location focuses your eye on that location and makes it the focal point. Much the same can be said about professional outdoor lighting. Outdoor lighting can be used to define the lines, architecture, and nuances that make your home’s beauty and unique characteristics shine through. Well designed and placed outdoor lighting can make your home even more stunning in the evening than it is during the day. Landscape and garden outdoor lighting can make your backyard and landscape appear to be a lush outdoor oasis, giving rise to beauty not seen in the light of the daytime. Expertly designed and executed outdoor lighting can give the appearance of light dancing from one beautiful focal point to the other. Along with the beauty that comes along with having professional outdoor lighting, there are other benefits as well.

Nashville Outdoor Lighting - Architectural Outdoor Lighting

Nashville Outdoor Lighting - Architectural Outdoor Lighting can create ambiance year round.

In many homes across Nashville, the homeowners have access to a virtual playground in their very own backyards. From pools and luscious spas that offer a place to renew your soul, to gorgeous patios and outdoor porches that serve as gathering spots for your family and friends. Without proper outdoor lighting these extensions of outdoor living and recreation cannot be enjoyed to their fullest extent. A well-lit outdoor entertaining area, or pool and spa area means that you can enjoy the fruits of your labor into the evening without the stress of looking at the clock. Your backyard will not only be well illuminated, adding the element of outdoor lighting to areas such as pools and spas creates an ethereal ambiance that only beautiful lighting can provide.

Outdoor lighting also paves the way to more fun and playful opportunities to enjoy your landscape in the evening. With outdoor lighting the gang can throw the pigskin around during halftime on that Monday night game and not have to worry about tripping over your prized rose bushes or passing it in the dark. With outdoor lighting your outdoor activities can extend well into the evening and expand your outdoor living enjoyment.

Having the added benefit of a safer home is also great incentive to install outdoor lighting at your home year round. Not only does a properly lit sidewalk welcome guests to your door with hospitality, it also reduces the risk of falls due to low visibility. A well-lit exterior also lessens the risk of a robbery or break in. Our outdoor lighting can be programmed to operate on a regular schedule to ensure you are never left in the dark. In the same token, that same lighting control automation technology we use to program your outdoor lighting timer can also be programmed to give the appearance that someone is always home – even if you are on vacation in a tropical paradise thousands of miles away. Our lighting control technologies can be accessed by a simple touch of a button via your smart phone.

Wrap up your holiday lighting design in elegance with tree lighting by Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville

Tree branches and trunks wrapped in festive lights.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville creates this stunning effect by wrapping the tree's branches and trunks in festive lights.

Even though the winter weather outside may be frightful, the holiday lights we are beginning to see around town are so delightful. In towns and suburbs all around the country the Christmas rush is on. This includes designing and installing your residential and commercial holiday lighting display in time for the upcoming holiday. Outdoor holiday lighting is an important element of decorating for Christmas. A well decorated home or business is not complete without beautiful Christmas lights. In order to create a cohesive theme or mood  for the holidays it’s important to include outdoor Christmas decorations in the scenario, and the most effective and enchanting way to do this is by adding outdoor Christmas lighting. One facet of outdoor holiday lighting is to decorate select trees within your lawn and landscape to reflect the beauty and spirit of Christmas.

Tree lighting for the holidays by Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville

Tree lighting for the holidays by Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville.

The origins of the lighted Christmas tree trace back to the 17th century and in 1882 electric lighting was introduced as a viable way to illuminate the interior Xmas tree. The same traditions that make lighting and decorating your interior Christmas tree can carry out to lighting exterior trees for the holidays as well.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville has been breathing the magic of the holidays into trees all over the Nashville area for over 20 years. One of the most enchanting lighting elements used in  our exterior Christmas tree lighting is called tree wrapping. Wrapping exterior trees with holiday lights adds class and refinement to your landscape during the season and can also create a focal point of interest to your holiday lighting design.

The key to a well-wrapped exterior Christmas tree is based on the same theory used to expertly wrap a holiday gift to place under your tree for the holidays. Careful and even placement of lights, making certain to leave no gaps, or empty spots is crucial in creating the desired effect. In certain circumstances we have  even employed the assistance of a crane to make sure each and every light is wrapped  in perfect precision around the trunk and branches of the tree which you are illuminating.

Christmas lights in large tree

Christmas lights in a singular, large tree wthin the landscape can create an elegant effect

Outdoor holiday tree lighting such as tree wrapping can be used in a variety of presentations. One way to create a dramatic impact is to wrap multiple trees along linear areas of your landscape such as a fence line, or driveway border. The effect of multiple wrapped trees illuminated in perfect unison can result in an enchanting “winter wonderland” effect that will make your guests feel like a kid again. Choosing a single conifer candidate to wrap with lights can also result in a breathtaking effect in your landscape as well. One beautifully lit tree can become the star in your outdoor lighting design, because even with outdoor holiday lighting, less is sometimes more.
