What do rhythmic gymnastics, modern art, and pizza dough tossing have in common? They are all harder than they look to do well. Another task that is much more difficult than it looks to master is design and installation of a quality outdoor lighting system.
Sure, it seems like just a trip to a big box store to buy some fixtures, some bulbs, and some wiring, followed by an afternoon of eyeballing where they should shine. And some people try that strategy the first go-around. It never turns out well. It ends up looking like the guy who accidentally puts his hand all the way through the middle of the pizza round the first time he flings it in the air.
A professionally designed Memphis outdoor lighting system considers safety, security, aesthetics, architecture, landscape, drainage patterns… The list goes on and on. In addition to bringing years of knowledge and experience to the table, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Memphis uses handcrafted brass and copper exterior lighting fixtures. The average consumer doesn’t have access to the variety and quality of fixtures that we use. If you can find them, you won’t be able to purchase them at the value pricing we get as industry veterans.
Special effects lighting can make your Memphis exterior lighting especially engaging and take your curb appeal to the next level. Moon lighting is a terrific way to light a path or driveway effectively, but with a romantic touch. In order to create the dappled effect of moonlight streaming through the leaves of a tree, you need to know which kind of light to use and how to install it properly. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Memphis can offer you design options like this that you might not have even heard of before.
Should you use a well light or a flood light by that corner of the house? Most homeowners don’t know what the best tool is for each lighting job in a yard. There is no shame in that. We don’t know how to do your job. The important thing is to recognize which projects are suited to an investment of your time and effort and which should be outsourced to an experienced professional.
