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.

Labor Day Party Planning is in Gear! Get your Lighting Updated Now for Evening Fun!

Labor Day is right around the corner!

Labor Day is right around the corner!

Labor Day is just around the corner and it’s the last big outdoor hurrah of the summer season. With the days getting shorter and nightfall making an earlier entrance, make sure your outside living area gets special treatment so that your holiday weekend party can continue well into the evening hours.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville can tackle the job of maintaining your existing system, adding to it or installing a brand new lighting program from scratch. We can put you on the schedule right now for a pre-Labor Day inspection so you are ready for your outdoor family gathering.

Nashville Outdoor Lighting MaintenanceFirst, we make sure your system is working properly and that any burned out bulbs are replaced. This is a great time to consider converting your old-school halogens to all LED lighting since the bulbs last way longer and they consume a lot less electricity. We come in and check all your wiring and make sure it’s all intact and we re-bury any wire that has made its way to the surface due to any landscape activity or rain. We check all your fixtures to make sure they are in good shape, aligned properly, and free of dirt or spider webs, and we can trim any plant overgrowth that blocks the beam of light.  We check your transformer to make sure that it is carrying the load of wattage properly and that your timer  is functioning as it should, too.

Outdoor Lighting Perespectives of Nashville uses architectural lighting to accentuate this homes distinctive features

Now is a good time to decide if you want to add additional light to enhance your system or perhaps you feel that an upgrade is necessary. We can  give you a whole different look in terms of ambience and mood if you are simply ready for a change in how your home and property are illuminated. We can take a look at where family and friends primarily hang out in your backyard and make sure that those spots are lit up so they not only look beautiful, but they are also safe from being too dim to avoid slip and falls. Lighting a step up or down to a patio or deck, for example, is a great spot for light so that guests can easily navigate it. We ensure your pathways from your driveway to your yard are visible enough for visitors to be able to walk on safely, too. Keep in mind that if it’s hard to see, your guests will just naturally head indoors—so keep things visible enough so that guests feel comfortable continuing the outdoor celebration.

Outdoor Patio lighting St. Louis

Since cooking and dining is a given on Labor Day, we will make sure your outdoor kitchen or barbecue area is lit so that the home cook can work his or her culinary magic easily and guests can also see clearly enough to grab a drink and see their plates. We do this without harsh, blaring spotlights that were used decades ago and skillfully provide illumination so that the area still looks completely natural and part of the rest of your landscape.

Nashville landscape lighting integrated with pool lightingIf your pool is a natural hang out for your Labor Day festivities, we will make sure your pool deck or patio is spectacularly lit up so the fun doesn’t have to stop in the twilight hours. We can light the landscape areas around your pool or pond to give this area incredible dimension and draw people to it. September is a great time to hang by your fire pit, so we can elegantly wash this area with a warm light that will pull guests like fireflies to it. One of our favorite lighting techniques to use is to mimic the effect of moonlight, and we strategically hide a few key fixtures higher up in the trees to generate this same look so that the light sparkles through the leaves in an enchanting fairytale manner. We can set any mood you want and bathe your yard in gorgeous lighting that will truly wow you, and your guests.

Try to imagine how you would feel if your outdoor lighting system failed during your next outdoor cocktail party or your upcoming 4th of July cookout.

It’s just not the same as using your custom designed outdoor lighting system which perfectly casts just the right amount of task and ambient lighting all throughout your outdoor living area.

Some surprises are marvelous…while others are not.

Nashville LED lighting is greener and more beautiful than everDon’t you just love surprises? You know, that wonderful feeling you get when you open your cable bill and discover they have cut your monthly fee by 30% because you’ve been a loyal customer since 1998, or when you pull up to the drive through window to pay for your special order cup of designer coffee that you only splurge on once a month and the cashier tells you the person in the car in front of you paid for your order and said to have a great day. These kind of surprises are marvelous!

However here’s another scenario to consider; You are entertaining 25 guests at your home for an evening cocktail and dinner al’ fresco event, and just as dusk arrives and dinner is being served, your outdoor lighting system fails…this is not the kind of surprise any host or hostess would like. Instead of enjoying the conversation, drinks and food with your guests, you are frantically running around trying to find every candle you own to cast some sort of light across the tables in order to salvage the evening. Wouldn’t it be nice to have the confidence in knowing that your outdoor lighting system is primed and ready for peak performance for all of your upcoming outdoor celebrations and social gatherings?

How to prevent teetering on the “eave” of disaster with a little help from Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville

Here at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville we take lighting safety very seriously. Our newest addition to our menu of outdoor lighting services is geared towards not only providing you with convenience , but preserving safety too. How many times have you found yourself risking life and limb teetering off of a rickety ladder to change out your eave lighting? This scenario is dangerous on single-story dwellings and even more risky on second and third-story homes.

A closer look at this eave lighting proves the danger of bulb replacement on 2nd story homes.

Did you know that according to WHO (World Health Organization), falls are the second leading cause of accidental or unintentional injury deaths worldwide. Each year an estimated 424,000 individuals die from falls globally and out of this staggering number adults older than 65 suffer the greatest number of fatal falls. In addition, WHO also reports 37.3 million falls that are severe enough to require medical attention occur each year. One of the contributing factors to this high number of falls is attributed to working at elevated heights or in other hazardous working conditions. Changing out eave lighting on your home, or business, if you are not a lighting professional would fall into the category of working at both an elevated height within a hazardous condition.

LED lights are long lasting, energy efficient and among the safest lights on the market today for outdoor lighting.

LED lights are long-lasting, energy-efficient and among the safest lights on the market today for outdoor lighting.

Our professionally trained technicians will replace your existing halogen, compact fluorescent or incandescent bulbs or we can also upgrade your eave lighting to super-efficient LED while we perform the replacement.

We make every effort to ensure all our lighting is installed with safety as the first concern.

LED lighting is more energy-efficient and leaves less of an impact on the environment than other types of outdoor lighting.  It can save a homeowner thousands in energy costs over the LED’s lifetime. In addition, since they contain no glass components, they are not vulnerable to vibration or breakage like other types of bulbs and make the perfect lighting for outdoor applications. LED lights are free of toxic chemicals. Most conventional fluorescent bulbs contain a multitude of materials such as mercury that are dangerous for the environment and make disposal dangerous. Since they contain no toxic materials and are 100% recyclable, they will help you reduce your carbon footprint by up to a third. LED is safer in many regards too because it generates light from cool burning technology, and it uses less wire to install properly.
