Why is Columbus LED Landscape Lighting Such a Popular Choice?

Today’s outdoor lighting projects for residential applications are rapidly moving to LED technology and particularly a technique called up lighting. As more consumers choose LED technology for their landscape lighting, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Columbus is on the leading edge of this trend. The reasons for incorporating LED designs are twofold, energy savings and bulb life.

A low voltage lighting design using LED consumes 75% less energy than traditional halogen fixtures. LED is also safer for the environment; it reduces Co2 emissions, is recyclable and contains no mercury. Secondly the bulb life is 10 times that of halogen. Typical halogen bulbs have a 4000 hr. life. LED outdoor bulbs have a 50,000 hr lifetime! That fact alone reduces your maintenance cost by not having to purchase and change bulbs. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Columbus uses the most reliable product on the market, the Cree LED, assembled in the United States for all our LED installations.

If you already have an existing landscape lighting system, don’t feel you can’t GO GREEN. Most existing fixtures can be “retro-fitted” with LED bulbs with no costly changes. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Columbus strives to offer the latest technology available to all our customers. We go out of our way to ensure that we not only meet your expectations, but exceed them. Our top-of-the-line outdoor LED lighting fixtures can provide your home with the same warm, subtle illumination of halogen bulbs but with a much longer lifespan and reduced energy usage.

To find out how early you can have the latest in outdoor lighting technology installed, call Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Columbus today at (614) 203-4291, email us at olpcolumbus@outdoorlights.com or fill out the form below. We look forward to hearing from you soon!


Illuminate Your Columbus Trees this Fall

Fall may be time for eating pumpkins, fire pit nights, and raking leaves, but did you know it’s also time to take care of your trees? Whether you are considering planting or trimming, fall is the best time to do this work in Columbus. Why? With dropping temperatures, tree sap moves more slowly. Trimmed trees will have more time to heal without “bleeding out” too much sap, and with the insect population decreasing, trees are less likely to become infested by bugs drawn to plant juices. This just makes it less stressful on the tree. Planting in the fall is also less stressful for new trees. New growth slows considerably in the fall, so by planting during this time, the tree has more time to adjust to its new location before it uses its energies to grow again in the spring. While you are hard at work tending your trees and planting new ones, remember that now is also the perfect time to showcase them with Columbus landscape lighting.

Why would you want to illuminate your trees when you plant and tend them? Because, chances are, you don’t particularly enjoy chaos on your property. Like any other home or landscaping improvement, planting and tending trees can get a bit messy. There are limbs and leaves strewn across the lawn. Holes are being dug, and depending on the size of the trees you are planting, you may even need earth moving equipment present to dig out your tree’s new home. Now, consider what happens when outdoor lighting is installed. Trenches must be dug for wiring. Components are strewn across the lawn, and technicians are busy working. By scheduling tree lighting installation when you are already working with your trees, you won’t extend the process.

Ensuring your new trees, and the older ones you have tended, are visible after dark enhances your property. Even if those trees are deciduous and have already lost their leaves before you plant them, their branches and bark will bring beautiful form and texture to your landscape in the evening this fall and winter. Emphasize their form with tree lighting. Most of the tree lighting we do at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Columbus utilizes well lights, spotlights, and up lighting techniques. These fixtures and techniques create beautiful, dramatic shadowing and highlights. Our designers will work with you to pinpoint ideal fixture placement, and our technicians will set your lights in just the right spot. By working with our established company, you will get the most beautiful lighting design and the highest quality fixtures and components to showcase your trees.

So call us today. Having beautiful trees, night or day, is easier than you think. You’ll see why using Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Columbus is easier than doing tree lighting yourself or using a general contractor. The experience of a seasoned outdoor lighting company using the highest quality products is a difference you can see. Don’t wait. Your trees will thank you, and you’ll thank yourself. You can reach us by calling (614) 203-4291, email us at olpcolumbus@outdoorlights.com or fill out the form below. We look forward to hearing from you soon!

Columbus, OH Outdoor Lighting Maintenance Can Pay Dividends Later On

Your outdoor lighting system is an investment. Wouldn’t you like to see your investment stay operating at peak efficiency? It’s important to remember, if your outdoor lighting system is not displaying as it was designed, it could have a negative impact on the appearance of your home after dark. No matter what’s causing your system to not emit the proper amount of illumination, nor who initially installed your system, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Columbus can perform maintenance and repairs to alleviate the problem.

Throughout the summertime your outdoor lighting fixtures can potentially take a real beating. From mowing and edging of your lawn which may bump fixtures to neighborhood kids playing basketball, baseball or football and inadvertently breaking one of your fixtures, all of these can be resolved by the professionals at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Columbus. In addition to these more obvious signs of damage to your system, don’t forget the strong storms which may have caused dirt to end up on the lens of your outdoor lighting fixture. This could cause a dim, less than optimal output of illumination.

If you’ve had any yard work performed where you were digging, you may have accidentally severed an electrical line to your system. This would only be noticeable to you once the system powers on and you’re outside to observe your system. Whether you need wires replaced or a new transformer, we can handle any and all of your system’s maintenance and repair needs.

For all your Columbus, OH outdoor lighting system maintenance and repair needs, call Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Columbus at (614) 203-4291, email us at olpcolumbus@outdoorlights.com or fill out the form below. We look forward to hearing from you soon!


If Your Landscape Disappears Once Nightfall Arrives, Call Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Columbus Today!

We all have our favorite aspect of our home.

We can come to your home and find the areas of your home’s landscape which you want to see made a focal point, then set up the tailor made design to match. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Columbus is the number one landscape lighting company in Columbus, OH and surrounding areas.

Landscape lighting is about so much more than providing illumination. Your landscape is completely unique and you need a true professional to come up with the design which matches your landscape’s intricate layout. We don’t simply come to your home and haphazardly place fixtures, we find out your goals and objectives and then set out to create the perfect design to illuminate the key areas of your landscape. Not only should your landscape lighting be able to cast gorgeous illumination onto whichever areas you most desire, it should also act as a security system during the evenings. Combining practicality with aesthetics is what we do best.

Your landscape lighting can act as a deterrent for any would be intruder. Think of it in this manner: if someone is trying to sneak into your yard, it will be virtually impossible for them to enter or exit your yard’s perimeter without being put on full display by professionally designed and installed landscape lighting. A well-lit home is much less likely to be targeted by would be intruders than a non well-lit home on the very same street, statistically speaking. So, not only will your home and landscape be the envy of the neighborhood, but it will be more of a deterrent to potential criminals with professionally installed landscape lighting.

Columbus OH Deck Lighting Can Bring Perfect Illumination to All Your Summer Evenings!

When you and your family are relaxing in the evenings on your deck, do you seem to get chased indoors as the sun goes down? Your deck is more than likely one of your larger investments, wouldn’t you like to be able to use it no matter what time of day it is?

If you like to unwind on your deck after a long day of work, and enjoy having weekend cookouts there during these warm summer evenings, Columbus OH deck lighting is perfect for you. Not only will you be able to see what you’re cooking and what you’re eating, but you’ll also be able to enjoy your deck or patio in the evenings with added ambiance. This is something quite often overlooked when discussing outdoor lighting – many companies like to focus on their lighting fixtures alone. The whole goal of outdoor lighting is to give your deck the true “effect” of professionally designed and installed outdoor lighting.

As you can see in the picture above, deck lighting has given this deck a new persona come nightfall. Whereas before, once the sun went down, this deck was dark and uninviting, it now has a certain allure to it. Combining practicality and aesthetic value through outdoor lighting is the true sign of an outdoor lighting professional. As you can see the deck’s absolutely gorgeous, you may also notice the steps and stairways are now much safer to walk down in the evenings. This is not by coincidence.

We take our time to understand the areas of your deck you need to see illuminated, then we create a design for your deck lighting which is completely customized for your deck and your deck alone.

Once we have the perfect design for your deck’s lighting, we will then install the fixtures as to keep them as subtle as possible.

Pool Area Lighting Can Make Your Summer Evenings Even More Magical

When it comes to your pool area, you want it to serve as an entertainment destination which is a relaxing oasis for party guests and family.

We will take into account the area around your pool and transform it into an area of relaxation during the evening hours. Whether your pool area includes a firepit or grilling area, we will ensure that each and every area has adequate lighting once nighttime falls.

Low-voltage lighting is essential around water and can illuminate areas that can become a hazard to swimmers. In addition to the walkways, steps and other areas leading up to the pool can benefit from outdoor lighting as well, helping guests and children navigate an unfamiliar backyard. Outdoor lighting can also highlight focal areas such as trees or special plantings, architectural features near the pool area or just adding ambiance to the overall pool area. You can even extend the pool area’s perimeter with subtle illumination in which family and guests can mingle.

Majestic Trees Deserve to Be in the Spotlight. Call Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Columbus Today!

One of the most sought after outdoor lighting techniques right now is tree lighting. Trees provide beauty to our homes but when the sun goes down, that beauty is hidden in the darkness. When properly lit, trees can make a big difference in the look and feel of our outdoor spaces.

One advantage a tree holds is that it doesn’t need a lot of lights to be illuminated beautifully. Focal lighting done right will give your tree the radiance it deserves. At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Columbus, we know the right type of lighting fixture to use at the best angle to illuminate your tree properly. Just like with architectural and landscape lighting, we also identify the appropriate distance the fixture needs to be installed and the best place to mount it depending on the preferred effect.

There are two lighting techniques we use depending on the type of tree and the result you are looking to achieve. Up-lighting is most commonly used on trees with magnificent canopies like towering oaks. Placing a well or flood light close to the tree trunk, directing the beam upward, lights the entire entity in a very dramatic way.

Down lighting or moon lighting is another type of tree lighting. Although this lighting technique is not as commonly used, it can be very impressive when done right. When you think of moon lighting, you probably think of the shadows and lights given off by the moon. This is the effect we mimic with down lighting. Flood lights are actually mounted in the trees at different levels to cast light down through the leaves and branches. This replicates the look and shadowing created naturally by the moon giving off a soothing and comforting feel.

If you are interested in highlighting a natural beauty in your yard, give us a call. We can help you determine the best type of outdoor lighting for your space.

We look forward to hearing from you soon!
