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.

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.

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.

Sophisticated Outdoor Lighting for Evening Backyard Fun in Hot Nashville Summers

Nashville magical backyard lighting

Boy, it’s hot in Nashville! Summer heat like this that goes on for what seems an unending period of time is certainly rough for those of us that enjoy hanging outside in our backyards, so it makes sense to wait until twilight takes over and the temperatures dip a bit after the sun has retreated. Summer evenings in the yard illuminated by fabulous lighting make it easy to enjoy dining later into the night and have some refreshing beverages with friends for some cooling R&R.

Nashville pool lightingIf you are lucky enough to have a pool there is nothing better than an evening swim, and we can help you achieve an incredible poolside lighting scheme that will light up your watery surround. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville can brighten up your pool edge and the landscape flanking it in a truly elegant way to give you the feel that you are on a vacation getaway right in your own backyard.  Poolside lighting helps extend the time you can use your pool regardless of how late into the evening the fun goes.

We can work directly with your pool contractor or landscaper, or our expert designers can alternately come in afterward and install a lighting design that will seamlessly fit in and look perfectly natural. Evening lighting should not only provide incredible ambiance and mood, but it should also provide a safe way for your family and friends to continue to enjoy your yard well into the darkest hours so they can easily walk around and enjoy it. We come in and help you strike a balance of both pretty and practical without sacrificing an overall stunning look that feels pulled together.

Backyard-pergola-lightingOutdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville can light up your patio or pergola with custom overhead lighting that will cast a beautiful glow on the revelers sitting below without ever feeling harsh. If you enjoy cooking late into the night, we can give you lighting that will enable you to grill without the use of unattractive and stark floodlights, too. We can stylishly illuminate a favorite water feature such as a fountain or fish pond so that you can enjoy them no matter what the hour. Casting a few well-designed rays of light focused on a shimmering waterfall always elicits a smile from visitors who get to enjoy your water feature beyond daylight hours and delight in relaxing by the sound of water.

So you can enjoy your outdoor living areas despite hot days, we can help you with a well-rounded light scheme that can also include:

  • Accent Lighting: that can highlight a special feature in your garden such as statuary or showcase a fabulous tree and really make it stand out.
  • Path and Driveway Lighting: that safely enables your guests to get around your property without tripping or stepping on your flower beds, but also guides their eyes around your entire landscape.
  • Garden Lighting: Popping lighting in specific areas of your landscape helps tie the scheme all together by creating the feel of different rooms or areas within the property. It will draw guests to see what lies in a particular area of your garden.
Imagine enjoying season after season with outdoor lighting!
