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

Nashville landscape and water feature 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.

LandscapeLighting

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.

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!

Nashville Outdoor Lighting that Provides Three Dimensional Flair Every Night and Expands Outdoor Living

Nashville outdoor lightingMany of our clients comes to us with the primary objective of lighting the front facade of their house. We want to point out that many aspects of your Nashville property can benefit from outdoor lighting, especially your backyard. After all most outdoor living occurs in the backyard!  Don’t miss out on the opportunity to create a beautiful nightscape that provides breadth and texture all around your property and gives you a truly three dimension look against the evening sky — including the back of your home.

Paint a picture with light!

Imagine looking out the windows of your kitchen or living room and seeing a picturesque yard where every innuendo of your back landscape is visible, and the full expanse of your property! You can appreciate your favorite seating area even when not in use, a water feature, garden beds and even your pool well after the sun has retired. If you have a big picture window, we can give you an incredible vantage point from inside your home that will look like a postcard come to life night after night. Even if the weather is less favorable, you can still enjoy your outdoor spaces from inside your home.

Nashville tree and patio lighting

Good illumination will pull you toward the outside and make your outdoor spaces glow with a wash of what will look like romantic moonlight. Your dark patio or deck takes on a romantic appeal with expertly targeted lighting in locations that gives your home an expansive feel. We are not talking about a few spotlights or eave lights, but rather an intricate ambient lighting display that gives you visibility to easily walk around the property and also bathes it in elegant light.

Since October is National Outdoor Lighting Month, now is the perfect time to let Outdoor lighting Perspectives of Nashville help you enliven your home and property when the sun goes down. Change what you see from the indoors every evening and magically transform your backyard so that your eye can roam around from area to area when the sun goes down. Your whole outdoor living environment will be filled with visual and dimensional mood thanks to lighting that creates incredible depth.

Nashville garden lighting

You will be able to easily see around dark corners, we can also cast warm light into the canopy of trees and have your paths looking fairytale-worthy. With our mild weather even in the cooler months in Nashville, you will be able to extend your outdoor time thanks to better visibility and the ability to safely navigate your backyard even at the darkest hours. Why not enjoy your fire pit with the family on a crisp fall night? Invite some friends over and hang out on the deck while grilling a few steaks and great conversation thanks to wonderful illumination that gives you the opportunity to do so effortlessly!
