Thanks for Another Stellar Year Here at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville!As we kick off 2019 at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville, we wanted to extend a huge THANK YOU to each of our customers for making 2018 a spectacular year for us. We are so proud of the way our team has worked closely with our residential lighting and commercial outdoor lighting clients to give them the best outdoor lighting experience possible in Music City.

We don’t take any of the success we’ve had for granted, and offering top-notch outdoor lighting is what keeps pushing us to go one step further than the year before for our clients. We do everything imaginable to go above and beyond what the expectations are, and we are continually amazed by the reactions we get from customers. It’s been a pleasure serving the good people of Nashville, and we hope to continue to delight existing and new clients for many more years to come.

cheekwood 2018

We had a crazy busy year in 2018, including the always awe-inspiring holiday lighting installation of a million lights at Cheekwood Gardens (special thanks to Green Grow landscaping who pitched in to help, too!). It’s a huge endeavor to pull off each year, but the look on visitor’s faces when they see the display humbles us and makes the many months long effort worth every minute. We love to see those smiling faces and hear squeals of “WOW!”

None of our accomplishments would be possible without the efforts of our amazing team who are the backbone of our business. Junior (a 20-year employee) and Dustin are a father and son duo that works for us, and they never cease to amaze us with their skills. Debra, Connie, Kristi, Marc and David help us reach new heights thanks to their persistence and perpetually positive attitudes. We couldn’t do what we do without our people doing whatever it takes to take care of our customers.

Our plan at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville is to continue to push the envelope when it comes to creative and exciting lighting schemes that show off homes and businesses in our area in the best light. We hope to continue to perfect our systems and offerings to bring the latest energy savings fixtures, and most striking nighttime illumination Music City has seen.

The plan for 2019 is to keep perfecting our offerings—lighting for your landscape, your retail or hospitality business, commercial and parking lot venues, churches, sports/hobby events, specialty holiday displays and much more! If you’ve got a unique situation, we’d love the opportunity to hear about it. We enjoy the challenge of illuminating traditional and non-traditional locations, and no project is too big or too small for us to tackle.

Thank you kindly for the opportunity to add beautiful light into your evening!

My best,

Bob Lyons III

 

 

 

We are the Nashville-Area Outdoor Lighting Problem Solvers!

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville will bring your aging halogen or incandescent lighting system anew with extensive retrofitting capabilities

Franklin TN community and clubhouse lighting

The benefits of retrofitting outdated and aging outdoor lighting systems are crystal clear!  LED lighting inherently produces a lower carbon footprint, which is foremost in the minds of eco-conscious clients.  LED lighting retrofitting can offer up to 80% off electrical operating costs, so this is a solid solution for any Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville client – big, small, consumer, or business!  Additionally, LED offers something that old halogen lighting cannot – super longevity.  We’re talking about 50,000 hours of use, compared to the average of 2,500 hours produced by their aged counterparts.  This means in addition to direct cost savings and lowering your carbon footprint, you will see a lot less of us, because we won’t be replacing your LED bulbs as often.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville is Your Lighting Service Partner

Nashville Residential Outdoor Lighting

When other lighting companies see an old lighting system, they might immediately see huge dollar signs, because it is not an inexpensive thing to completely replace an old system.  Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville, however, will see an opportunity to save you money.  We will thoroughly audit your current lighting system and do our homework to find solutions to replace only what is absolutely necessary to replace.  We are not looking to charge the most money or take up the unnecessary time to replace your entire lighting system.  We are looking for ways to save time and money through in-depth problem-solving.  We will honestly tell you what components can be salvaged for your halogen-to-LED retrofitting, and which can not.

We know you have questions about replacing your halogen system with LED.  Many, if not most of us prefer the warm glow of those incandescent and halogen systems.  Not to worry!  LED now comes in a range of “color temperatures.”  That means we can work with you to determine how warm or cool you prefer your retrofitted LED lighting to be and provide an ample solution.  We are lighting experts, and we provide LED choices that you will not see in big box stores.  So, if you don’t see suitable LED solutions lighting for your home in those stores, it’s no surprise, please know that our selection goes lightyears beyond what you see there!

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville is in a New Location!

After many happy years at our Houston Street location, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville has moved! Just this week, we settled into Nashville outdoor lighting’s new home at 2215 Dunn Ave., Suite B in Nashville.

New OLP Nashville Building

Almost done!

We are still pouring lots of elbow grease and love into making the new spot our own, as you can see through the photos.

As many of you may already know, we were originally called “Lightscapes” and were operating under that name from 1987 until 1999. The birth of Outdoor Lighting Perspectives can be traced back to us, as we were a driving force in the way outdoor lighting was brought to market. By creating a turnkey landscape lighting business which featured the advent of the “night-time demonstration”, we brought the concept of all-inclusive outdoor lighting out of the shadows, away from being “avant garde” and into the mainstream.

Belle Meade architectural LED lighting and tree lighting by Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of NashvilleFrom here, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville was born. Our objective is to plan, design, and install your outdoor lighting as part of our all-inclusive service, with top-quality fixtures and service. So, even though our building location has changed our commitment to excellence in outdoor lighting has not!

A quality lighting system would not be complete without a worry-free service and maintenance program. We at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives want your home or business to look wonderful five years from now – just like it did the day it was originally installed. We have a dedicated service crew that service, adjust, and consult with all of our current clients and nonclient systems daily. Your property is our product and we want to provide you with the ultimate lighting experience.

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.
