Memphis BBQ Contest Showcases Nationwide Talent and Gets Us Thinking about Illuminating Your Outdoor Kitchen and Grill Area for Summer

Nashville SkylineBeing part of Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville is something we absolutely love to do as a team. We enjoy meeting clients, being creative with lighting and we are always up to a challenge when it comes to making things work in the most unique situations to give our customers exactly what they want. We also love to support Nashville’s local community events and give back whenever we can.

Springtime means barbecue time!We’ve participated in many fun events such as the Memphis In May BBQ competition with the team at Peg Leg Porkers, which brings in the county’s best BBQ teams for a cook off while raising awareness that provides education, international and economic program opportunities for the people of Memphis. Unfortunately, we couldn’t make it this year, but we wanted to tip our hat to the Peg Leg Porkers team for their stellar effort this year.

The Memphis in May World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest is quite a big deal for those of us with our hearts deep in BBQ, and it’s no different than ranking in a golf major or even the Kentucky Derby. They take barbeque seriously in the Memphis area, so it’s no surprise its home to this event. Any team taking the top three slots garners some pretty significant bragging rights throughout the entire USA and the BBQ world. Judging is serious business and determining the final winner in various categories is quite the heart-stopper.

Peg Leg Porker

To taste some fabulous BBQ in Nashville, definitely drop by Peg Leg Porker in the Gulch for some certified world-class barbecue and to congratulate the team.

Nashville’s own  Peg Leg Porker founder and owner, Carey Bringle, is a veteran of the Memphis in May contestant, but has never ended up in one of the coveted top-3 finalist spots.But this year was different as Bringle fielded two teams, one in his traditional category of Pork Shoulder and a second smaller team competing in Whole Hog. A brand-new competition trailer hauled everything they needed to compete, including one of his new line of smokers that he is selling, specifically the BMF-200. Fantastically, they came in third place and faced some stiff competition!

Task lighting within an outdoor kitchen makes food preparation effortless!

If you live in Music City and you want to get your own BBQ groove going, we can add real value to your backyard grilling and smoking experience thanks to task lighting that makes the job easy no matter what time you are flipping meat. Your outdoor kitchen and deck/patio area will not only look great, but it will work hard for you to ensure you know exactly when the brisket is done and ready to eat. Proper visibility to cook, serve and dine is an important part of any outdoor barbeque zone, so why not let Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville help you get it summer ready so you can show off your grilling skills to family and friends.

Huston Station Nashville lighting by Outdoor Lighting Perspectives

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville used special event festoon lighting to add romance to this wedding held inside Huston Station in downtown Nashville.

Garden and walkway lighting safeguards every step your guests take around the property. Whether they are walking around your pool deck, patio, to your home, up or down your steps, etc., we will make their journey from one area to another a safer one.  Additionally, we will make your home, party tent or celebration site easy to find no matter what the hour. We offer orb globes that can be suspended most anywhere in your space or trees that give a cool other-worldly feel that is totally unexpected with their floating effect. Festival style lighting hung above huge spans such as a dance floor, patio or deck allows your wedding or party guests to eat, boogie and simply hang underneath and sophisticated setting.

Nashville outdoor special event lighting

Our customers tell us time and time again how much functional space lighting will reveal. “It’s like that part of my yard didn’t existing at night because it’s not lit up at night”. For an outdoor party, this is an important benefit. You don’t want your guests on top of each other when there’s plenty of room just begging for illumination. Proper lighting can really open up that area for use and allow guests to “spread out in the space” comfortably. Consider an outdoor event under a tent. If only the tented area is illuminated, everyone will stay under the tent. But, perhaps there’s adjacent functional landscape area, or even a gazebo or patio which could double as a dance floor. Lighting extended areas within your landscape will encourage guests to use the areas beyond your primary location adding space to your event location — and mingle!

Nashville Post showcases our stunning festival lighitng completed in the Gulch!

Nashville Post

Our permanent festival lighting installation in “the Gulch” recently featured in the Nashville Post.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville is super proud to light up the evening sky in many of the most prominent commercial spaces in and around our beloved city.We are humbled and proud to have contributed the outdoor lighting on  venerable landmarks such as the Country Music Hall of Fame, Arrington Vineyards and even lighting up the Christmas tree at the capitol building. It’s a pretty big deal to us that Nashville entrusts us to illuminate these important spaces. The Gulch is one of the hottest parts of town with nifty restaurants, apartments and shopping. Its industrial warehouse look of the past is a big draw for hipsters looking for a cool way to spend some time in Nashville, and there is always a ton of fun that can be had in this part of town. We were honored to be asked to add some evening allure with the addition of overhead permanent festival lighting that casts a  glow in the alleys during the evenings. The Nashville Post recently profiled the Gulch with a great photo that clearly showcases these awesome fixtures that look just as striking during the daylight hours, and they definitely fit into the industrial vibe and perfectly match the brick on the buildings and the concrete walkways.

If you think these overhead festival lights are great, we can also incorporate them into any commercial setting such as over an outdoor restaurant patio for a European café vibe or even the clubhouse pool for a pretty watery sparkle after nightfall. Residential homes can also benefit from the same treatment over a patio, within a covered porch or veranda or even over your outdoor kitchen area for a delightful look that will give you plenty of visibility.

Our festival lights are commercial grade and made in the USA especially for us. They are meant to last season after season and are suspended by a strong wire so they do not sag over time.  We offer clear, white or an array of colors with bulbs, so you can keep the look classic like at The Gulch or jazz things up with a stimulating colorful vibe. Best of all, you can change out the bulbs at any time if you enjoy switching things up during different seasons of the year.

Your dark patio or deck takes on a romantic appeal with expertly targeted lighting in locations that gives your home an expansive feel.

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.
