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.

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.

Fall is a Good Time to Make Sure Outdoor Lighting is Up to Par with Autumn Activities and Earlier Nights

architectural outdoor lighting In autumn you want to make sure that it’s easy for your family to come home to a well-lit home when returning from school, work or game-time practice and activities. You want everyone to feel safe and secure no matter what  hour they get home. You also want your guests to be able to access your front door with ease as well as be wowed by how great your house looks from the street. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville can help you determine if extra illumination is needed, and we can check all your existing bulbs, wires and fixtures to ensure they are ready to work hard during the fall and winter months. We can tweak your timer to make sure you are ready to rock the shorter days and the system goes on and off exactly when you need it to.

Nashville autumn landscape planningSince most homeowners are busy planning their autumn landscaping installations and decorating for Halloween and fall color, it’s simply the ideal time to incorporate your outdoor lighting into the mix as well. If you’ve decided to plant some new trees or shrubs, some landscape lighting to spotlight these new additions to the garden are probably in order. Holiday décor such as pumpkins and scarecrows can take on a whole new spooky appeal when we cast decorative lighting onto them for some added fun and interest. We will also make sure the trick-or- treaters will effortlessly get to your front door safely without a hitch — all treats, no tricks!

Nashville pet friendly outdoor lightingTop-notch outdoor landscaping lighting is not just about good looks, it’s also about practicality that we take for granted when it’s difficult to see. Many homeowners walk their dogs in the late evening, and there is no reason you and your pup should be stumbling around in the dark bumping into objects or getting spooked by evening critters running around. Good lighting helps you and your pets get plenty of visibility after the sun goes down. Everyday chores such as taking out the trash to the garbage after dinner can happen without much fuss when you can easily see what you are doing now that the days are getting much shorter. Need to fetch your mail after the sun goes down? No sweat, we can make it stress-free to get to your mailbox and back with illumination that helps you get the task done right.
