Lighting Objective

Pathway lights are used to illuminate sidewalks, pathways and even plant material in floral beds. They are also commonly used around patio spaces to cast light around the perimeter. Their basic primary function is ground illumination.

Lighting Challenges

  1. Choosing a style: there are so many different styles available that will perform basically the same function, but with a different design
  2. Landscape clutter: adding too many of these fixtures can become an eyesore and can clutter up a landscape quickly. They should be used with restraint.
  3. Spacing and placement: knowing how to space the fixtures for maximum effect without over doing it.
  4. Glare: When lighting a home or landscape that is at a higher elevation above you, sometimes path lights can be a source of glare because you may be able to see under the top hat and right into the light source.
  5. Crooked stems: Over time a path light will begin to lean due to the natural movement of the ground. Because they are taller, it is much more evident when they begin to lean over a bit and can be somewhat unsightly.

Advantages

  1. Versatile: These fixtures can be used for a wide number of applications from lighting patios to stairs to pathways.
  2. Easy to install: Simply add a stake and lamp
  3. Selection: there are so many different styles of path lights available that you are sure to find one that suits your particular style and taste.
  4. Fills a void: when there are no mounting options for fixed illumination on pathways and sidewalks or other hard surface areas from fixed down lights, pathway lights allow a degree of light to be added easily for safe navigation.

Summary

When considering pathway lighting for your projects, be mindful of the quantity you are using on the project and how it looks in the landscape. If down lighting options from trees or other elevated structures allow you to illuminate the same areas with a concealed fixture, opt for the down light in those situations. The overall design will be more aesthetically pleasing. However, in many cases there are no other options for safely illuminating pathways, steps and other elevation changes in the landscape. A pathway light would be the perfect solution to the need.
