Techniques for Illuminating Your Pathways

When homeowners are seeking to bring light to pathways around their homes, they have several reasons. Perhaps they are seeking additional ease as they navigate between properties. In other cases, homeowners want to boost the curb appeal of their homes. One of the differences in completing a DIY project or hiring a landscaper with lighting as an add-on service versus hiring a professional company that specializes in landscape lighting is the knowledge to offer a variety of lighting techniques, fixtures, and solutions. With over a decade of experience helping illuminate pathways in the coastal Carolina areas, our team has a variety of techniques to bring light to the pathways around your home.


Mounting a lighting fixture high in the tree or from your home’s architecture and aiming it at the pathway below is called downlighting. Many homeowners prefer this technique because it provides a natural glow. Downlights create a moonlight effect to help you navigate your walkways after the sun has set each evening. When mounting fixtures from trees, often the branches and leaves create shadows that add to the natural vibes of using downlighting for your pathways.

Bollard Lighting

Bollard fixtures are often spotted around pathways. They are outdoor lights encased in vertical posts. Bollards are steel fixtures that range in height, width, and design. Bollard fixtures can be decorative and help tie together the look and feel of your home’s outdoor living space. Bollards are great for use near pathways because they are taller than your typical fixture, made of durable steel, and provide adequate lighting to the surrounding spaces.

Core Drilled Lighting

Every property is unique and that often comes with unique pathways and driveways. In cases where traditional pathway lights may not be suitable, core drilled lighting is an option. Core drilled lights are drilled directly into the concrete and sit flush with the rest of the pathway.
