Thanks for Another Stellar Year Here at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville!As we kick off 2019 at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville, we wanted to extend a huge THANK YOU to each of our customers for making 2018 a spectacular year for us. We are so proud of the way our team has worked closely with our residential lighting and commercial outdoor lighting clients to give them the best outdoor lighting experience possible in Music City.

We don’t take any of the success we’ve had for granted, and offering top-notch outdoor lighting is what keeps pushing us to go one step further than the year before for our clients. We do everything imaginable to go above and beyond what the expectations are, and we are continually amazed by the reactions we get from customers. It’s been a pleasure serving the good people of Nashville, and we hope to continue to delight existing and new clients for many more years to come.

We had a crazy busy year in 2018, including the always awe-inspiring holiday lighting installation of a million lights at Cheekwood Gardens (special thanks to Green Grow landscaping who pitched in to help, too!). It’s a huge endeavor to pull off each year, but the look on visitor’s faces when they see the display humbles us and makes the many months long effort worth every minute. We love to see those smiling faces and hear squeals of “WOW!”

None of our accomplishments would be possible without the efforts of our amazing team who are the backbone of our business. Junior (a 20-year employee) and Dustin are a father and son duo that works for us, and they never cease to amaze us with their skills. Debra, Connie, Kristi, Marc and David help us reach new heights thanks to their persistence and perpetually positive attitudes. We couldn’t do what we do without our people doing whatever it takes to take care of our customers.

Our plan at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville is to continue to push the envelope when it comes to creative and exciting lighting schemes that show off homes and businesses in our area in the best light. We hope to continue to perfect our systems and offerings to bring the latest energy savings fixtures, and most striking nighttime illumination Music City has seen.

The plan for 2019 is to keep perfecting our offerings—lighting for your landscape, your retail or hospitality business, commercial and parking lot venues, churches, sports/hobby events, specialty holiday displays and much more! If you’ve got a unique situation, we’d love the opportunity to hear about it. We enjoy the challenge of illuminating traditional and non-traditional locations, and no project is too big or too small for us to tackle.

Thank you kindly for the opportunity to add beautiful light into your evening!

My best,

Bob Lyons III

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville is in a New Location!

After many happy years at our Houston Street location, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville has moved! Just this week, we settled into Nashville outdoor lighting’s new home at 2215 Dunn Ave., Suite B in Nashville.

New OLP Nashville Building

Almost done!

We are still pouring lots of elbow grease and love into making the new spot our own, as you can see through the photos.

As many of you may already know, we were originally called “Lightscapes” and were operating under that name from 1987 until 1999. The birth of Outdoor Lighting Perspectives can be traced back to us, as we were a driving force in the way outdoor lighting was brought to market. By creating a turnkey landscape lighting business which featured the advent of the “night-time demonstration”, we brought the concept of all-inclusive outdoor lighting out of the shadows, away from being “avant garde” and into the mainstream.

Belle Meade architectural LED lighting and tree lighting by Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of NashvilleFrom here, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville was born. Our objective is to plan, design, and install your outdoor lighting as part of our all-inclusive service, with top-quality fixtures and service. So, even though our building location has changed our commitment to excellence in outdoor lighting has not!

A quality lighting system would not be complete without a worry-free service and maintenance program. We at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives want your home or business to look wonderful five years from now – just like it did the day it was originally installed. We have a dedicated service crew that service, adjust, and consult with all of our current clients and nonclient systems daily. Your property is our product and we want to provide you with the ultimate lighting experience.

Welcome David G. Todd to Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville

david-g-todd-headshot-for-olp-nashville

David G. Todd, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville.

Here at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville, we have a close-knit team. From our office staff, to our designers and our installers, we embrace an ethic of open communication and teamwork. In many ways, we function in much the same manner a family would. With this in mind, we want to formally welcome one of our newest team members into the OLP Nashville family — David G. Todd.

David is a Nashville native. He was in the specialty advertising business for 25 years. After selling his company he pondered what his next step would be. David then decided to venture into the oil and gas business where he remained until 2015 when gas prices plummeted, or when the spigots were turned off, so to speak. This left his calendar open to exploring new endeavors.

David’s arrival at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville has been “simmering” for many years as David and Bob Lyons Jr. have been friends for some 25+ years. During this time the two of them often tossed around the idea of doing something together from a business perspective. About 3 years backs those friendly conversations became more serious, which focused on growing the commercial end of the business from a lighting standpoint. David has ties to many of the contractors, builders, engineers and architects doing business in and around the Nashville area, so this past summer he and Bob Jr. decided to move ahead in officially making him part of the team.

David officially joined the OLP Nashville team on August 1st, 2016, where he is heading the commercial outdoor lighting aspect of growth and assists in growing the residential outdoor lighting facet as well. He is working in unison with Bob Jr. as the main salesman for commercial and residential installations.

Brentwood TN Architectural and Facade Outdoor Lighting

He loves being at OLP Nashville and says he is having a blast. He is most impressed with the effect the addition of outdoor lighting has on a property. Some of the most enjoyment for him comes from helping with evening demonstrations for prospective clients and witnessing their reaction to seeing their home, or business, illuminated for the first time — it is truly priceless. David pointed out a recent demo where the couple gave each other outdoor lighting as a Christmas present to themselves and how overjoyed they were with the results.

This past year, 2016, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville won a Franchisee of the Year award and the Excellence in Sales Award during the Outdoor Living Brands annual meeting held in January. David is elated to be part of a team that has, and continues, to be recognized for their success!

Please help us welcome the newest member of our team! We look forward to sharing the continued success of Nashville outdoor lighting, both in our commercial and residential projects in the future.

Let us transform your home, property or business for you today. Ask around, chances are that beautiful outdoor lighting your neighbor has been designed and installed by us.  Contact Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville at (615) 373 – 0638 or email us at olpnashville@outdoorlights.com.

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!

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!

Brentwood TN architectural lighting

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.

We are proud to say our work and fixtures absolutely pass the test of time. 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.

Brentwood TN landcape lighting

Brentwood TN landcape lightingIf you are dissatisfied with a system you had installed by another company or it just isn’t working properly, we can solve any problems and get things working right. We can work with within your timing and budget. We are happy to illuminate a single garden bed just as much as we are to light up The Gulch in Music City. If our name is on the project, we do our best no matter what the size of the challenge or who installed it initially.

If your budget is tight, you’d be surprised and how much light we can actually shed on your property even with just a few targeted fixtures. It doesn’t take much to really jazz things up so you can make a great impression in the neighborhood. Of course you get the added value of safety and security thanks to improved visibility, too.
