Showcasing Others’ Work with Light

At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives, we consider ourselves experts in the field of creating beautiful outdoor and landscape lighting systems. Lighting is all that we do, that’s why our clients choose us; they know that we’ll be here for all their needs from design, to installation and maintenance. As experts in our field, we respect those that specialize in theirs, and we’re lucky enough to enhance some of their work with ours, a win/win!

OLP of Richmond takes pride in the relationships we have with companies of all kinds, be them builders, landscapers, deck contractors, etc. Our goal is to make their work look at good as possible with the addition of strategically placed light. Here are some examples of the work that we’ve done.

Architectural lighting’s purpose is to enhance the curb appeal of a property. We work with local builders as they design and build their homes. They are sure to look wonderful during the day, but without light, the stunning designs are lost at night. We recently worked with Perkinson Homes to illumination this stunning property in Midlothian. With a unique white façade and black trim, and stately entrance with columns we knew we had to accentuate it, but in a subtle way. Our outdoor lighting design washes the front of the home with a warm illumination, but nothing overpowering. A bright light on the white of the house would be too stark, but not with this warm white LED.

This backyard is one straight out of Alice in Wonderland with its curved stone pathways and bordering hedges. Not to mention the pergola and planter/urn in the center of it all. We understand that a space like this takes a lot of work for a landscaper to create and maintain. If you look at the image, your eye doesn’t go to any one fixture although they are there to light the traveled walkways, the landscaping, the pergola and urn. Instead, you look at the beauty of the space in general. That’s the key to a good lighting design, one that is about the effect, not the fixture.

A new custom outdoor living space is and investment for any homeowner. It’s an investment in both your property, but also your lifestyle. When a deck or patio builder creates a good space for you, you’ll truly appreciate it and want to spend as much time outside as possible. Lighting helps with that. This large outdoor living space has many layers, levels, and structures. It’s gorgeous! Our lights guide visitors through the property safely while also allowing them to take in the details of the patio, steps, deck, pool, landscaping and more.
