It is important to find the right lighting for your pathway, but it is equally important to you to find or create lighting that fits with your space and your design.
Creative LED Garden Lighting Ideas to Light Up Your Yard
Lights in Pavers or Stones Like These
The advancement in solar technology has made it possible for you to purchase patio pavers or stones that fit right into your pathway or yard design. Because the lights are solar, you do need to be sure that the solar panel is placed somewhere it can get plenty of direct sunlight.
Tube Style LED Garden Lighting
You could encircle large paving stones with the LED tube lighting to create a dramatic effect for your pathway.
The LED lights come in a wide range of colours and lengths. Check with your electrician to see if the lights can be permanently installed and connected to a switch.
These lights sit low (almost flush) with the ground and provide directed light along the path. Use these on steps to make it easier for you and your guests to manoeuvre the pathway at night. They look very effective on the steps of a deck.
LED and solar lights installed in stones will give the light that you want for your pathway! They do so without taking away the focus of your landscape or hardscape design. You can purchase prefabricated lights in your home supply store, or use your DIY spirit and a little elbow grease to create your own.
Install old-fashioned street lamps along the pathway to create a park path atmosphere for your space.
You can purchase solar street lamps or add lamps to poles. Have your electrician connect the lights to a plug near the house. Doing so means that you can have easy control over the light to your pathway.
Will you use these LED garden lighting ideas in your yard? You can add a new element of safety and style to your outdoor space for sure.
