Warm Winter’s Chill with Outdoor Lighting!

Nashville landscape lighting plays softly against the winter snow.

Nashville landscape lighting plays softly against the winter snow.

Outdoor lighting isn’t just about the warm weather months, it’s a benefit that gives you four seasons of beauty and allure at all times of the year. We have had quite the winter here in the Nashville area with plenty of cold, snow, ice and even blizzard conditions in recent weeks. Even in a blanket of snow, your landscape can take on a magical presence thanks to outdoor lighting.

Nashville pet friendly outdoor lightingOf course, your hard-working outdoor lighting keeps going even on the coldest and darkest of nights and that has mega sized benefits. For one it keeps your home looking beautiful, even if it’s sporting a blanket of snow. The ambiance of lighting every evening exudes warmth what the thermometer reads. In addition, professional outdoor lighting enables more practical use of your property all year long. It doesn’t matter if you are walking the dog, taking out the trash, driving up onto your driveway after a long night of work or picking up the kids from sports practice—the ability to see everything clearly while traversing around your property is a big bonus when it comes to quality, customized lighting.

Another important benefit is the aspect of safety when it comes to being able to clearly see wet or icy areas that may be on your walkways and sidewalks that could cause a slip, or even a fall.  Illuminating your garage and the darker corners of your property also deters thieves and promotes the appearance as if someone is always home. We even offer Lighting Control Automation (LCA) that can be controlled by any computer or mobile device, too. A well-lit home is simply a safer home hands down!

Last but certainly not least,  outdoor lighting that is designed to take advantage of the changing seasons improves your lifestyle in big ways. During the warm weather months it enhances all the fun associated with outdoor entertaining, BBQ’s, al fresco dining, late night swims by the pool and more. In the cooler months, outdoor activities such as gatherings by your outdoor fireplace or fire pit with a cup of hot chocolate and even the ease of grilling is enhanced. If you can’t go out on a very cold night, you can still sit indoors and enjoy the majesty of your property through your back windows all lit up in splendor. Curling up with a good book in the living room while gazing outside will certainly have a calming effect that can be extremely relaxing after a busy day.

A recent outdoor living survey confirms what Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville already knew!

 

Outdoor lighting plays a major role in the success of landscape architecture.

Outdoor lighting plays a major role in the success of landscape architecture.

A survey conducted by the American Society of Landscape Architects reveals the hottest outdoor living trends for 2014, and it is no surprise to us that outdoor lighting was at the top!  The data compiled reveals “consumer demand remains strong for attractively designed residential landscapes that are perfect for entertaining and relaxing. The survey also shows continuing popularity for both sustainable and low-maintenance design.” All of these findings are “spot-on” as they closely mimic the trends we are seeing here at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville. Homeowners are putting more effort into their landscape than ever before, including landscape lighting. In addition, they are also integrating outdoor lighting into the outdoor spaces they utilize for entertainment, recreation, family time and relaxation purposes. With low-maintenance and sustainability in mind, LED outdoor lighting makes up more than half of the residential, and commercial, installations we do.

We offer nighttime demonstrations in order to determine the areas of your property that would benefit the most from lighting.

Why, you may ask, has lighting become such an integral part of outdoor living? The answer is simple; outdoor lighting extends the safety, security, comfort, beauty and function of your outdoors in the evening. Outdoor lighting makes it possible to live the way you and your family want to live outdoors with no limitations on enjoyment! Outdoor lighting is now within the grasp of every homeowner. Where once upon a time, homeowners had to “guess” at where and how outdoor lighting could enhance their home and landscape, we offer nighttime demonstrations in order to determine the areas of your property that would benefit the most from lighting. Here are just a few examples of the impact outdoor lighting can have…

  • Outdoor lighting that is sustainable and low-maintenance
Outdoor Lighting Perspectives LED path light

We offer our clients a way to invest in tomorrow through the use of “green” outdoor lighting technologies such as LED.

LED lighting is energy-efficient, making them more economical to operate than traditional outdoor lighting. LED lighting also leaves less of an impact on the environment than other genres 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 conventional 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. Our LED outdoor lighting is also longer lasting and requires less frequent replacement and maintenance making their operation seem effortless!
