Besides making your storefront, restaurant or venue look gorgeous in the evening night—commercial outdoor lighting also provides many other benefits besides a stunning aesthetic. We help you add security and safety so your customers can safely navigate your grounds without a hazardous trip and fall in the dark. Additionally, targeted lighting keeps crime down near your location thanks to brightly lit surroundings, too.

We totally get balancing beauty within a budget, and Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville uses LED lighting for low energy consumption that helps save when it comes to your bottom line. You can expect up to an 80% savings in switching out from old-school incandescent and halogen bulbs. LED bulbs last longer as well, so this means fewer change-outs for another cost reduction. And, our LED’s offer warm light that turns on immediately with no warm-up waiting or flickering.

We don’t use cheap plastics that fade and get brittle over time like many of our competitor’s, either. We refuse to skimp on quality and pass on an inferior product to our customers. Period! We also service EVERYTHING we install, so you can focus on your business plan and not worry about your outdoor lighting. You call us if there is ever an issue, and we promise to be there to fix it.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville Has Gone to the Dogs—and Tails are Wagging with Delight!

Nashville dog park lighting in Brentwood TNDog parks are becoming more popular every year, especially in metro areas such as Nashville where dog owners don’t have large yards. Dog owners depend on these areas to ensure their pups get the exercise they need. Many dog parents even seek out properties near dog parks as a prerequisite when purchasing a home. One important element for dog parks, in the evening, is proper lighting. Without it, the park is uninviting and could be considered unsafe at night. Recently, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville had the opportunity to help add necessary lighting to a Brentwood, TN dog park, Tapestry Dog Park.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives has been a trusted source for commercial outdoor lighting in the Nashville area including Brentwood, for over 30 years. We bring efficient lighting solutions to outdoor spaces for convenience, safety, security and aesthetics. We have had the pleasure of working on a variety of commercial outdoor lighting applications. We were thrilled to provide Tapestry Dog Park a customized lighting design and installation, allowing local residents to walk their dogs even after the sun goes down.

OLP Nashville Uses Innovative Commercial Outdoor Lighting

When working on this project, we discussed a variety of commercial outdoor lighting options. Based on the needs of the space and the client’s requirements, we recommended solar lighting. As a cost-effective, environmentally-friendly option, our client was very receptive to installing this type of solution.

Nashville Dog Park Outdoor Lighting

These solar lighting applications not only incur zero energy cost but also have other innovative qualities. These tall posts have an extended fixture, which charges during the day and illuminates in the dark.

These lights also sense motion and become brighter as dogs and their walkers approach them. Because a dog park has sporadic visitors after dark, solar lighting with sensors was an ideal fit for this application.

Temporary Nashville lighting for your very special event – 3 important things to think about

Are you having an outdoor prom, wedding, graduation party, cookout or other really special event? If so, you’ve probably considered outdoor lighting for the event. Have you wondered if it’s possible to get great quality event lighting for a one-time event? With a resounding yes, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville provides temporary outdoor lighting for events and special occasions.

Temporary LED lighting fixtures in Nashville

We have a variety of outdoor lighting fixtures available for temporary use or permanent installation. Our fixtures are also available in LED.

You’ve probably considered the many benefits of having outdoor lighting as well as the implications of not having lighting. Here are the top 3 things to think about:

1) Adding space

One thing our customers tell us time and time again is how much more they and their guests use their back yards once they add outdoor lighting. “It’s like that part of my yard doesn’t existing at night because it’s not lit up at night”. For an outdoor party, this is even more important to consider. You don’t want your guests on top of each other when there’s plenty of room and good lighting couple open up that area for use. Consider an outdoor event under a tent. If only the tented area is illuminated, everyone will stay under the tent. But, perhaps there’s an adjacent gazebo or patio which could double as a dance floor. Lighting up those areas will allow and encourage some guests to use those areas thus essentially adding space to your event location.

2) Photography

We’ve all seen them. We’re positively giddy when we attach the digital camera cord to the computer the next day and there they are – super dark pictures that are essentially useless. Good outdoor lighting renders colors and images in a way similar to how they are seen during the day. If it’s a wedding, imagine the difference between outdoor evening photos with good illumination and without. If you’re having a family reunion and likely won’t see these relatives again for many years, you want to capture all of the pictures. Good lighting will help make this possible.

3) Safety

Let’s never forget safety. Grassy areas hold numerous pitfalls for traversing add night. Add high heels to the equation and it could be even worse. But traversing grass and bumpy surfaces such as a cobbled walkway can be very safe if properly illuminated. Better illumination of the entry path and the party will enhance the safety of all your guests in the evening.

Do you own a facility that hosts outdoor evening events? Lighting commercial venues with permanent outdoor lighting is one of our specialties. Give us a call for a free estimate on either temporary or permanent outdoor lighting for your outdoor entertainment venue. 615-373-0638.

Last week we attended the CAI Nashville golf tournament Luau Golf Scramble at Gaylor Springs Golf Course here in Nashville. We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We sponsored the straightest drive contest and had a nice tent where we met lots of great property managers around the Nashville area. In fact, some of the CAI members were already customers of ours and didn’t realize that we do commercial outdoor lighting. We do! After the event, we were asked by several CAI members to do a consultation. These were for traditional outdoor lighting but also for parking garage and parking area lighting.
