Path and spread lights are perfect for creating a subtle ambient light for your outside paths, walkways, grass, and garden beds. Spread lights are designed exactly for spreading out a blanket of subtle light across your yard or garden, almost like a low ceiling light for your outdoor space. Path lights are small posts with built in lights. These types of lights are little more focused, projecting light in a more specific direction, which is perfect for lighting walkways, or, if you have a specific area of your yard or garden that you want particularly well-lit. They’re also great for a driveway or pond. They’re subtler that higher mounted motion sensor driveway lights, but still manage to get the job done.
How do you decide where to place your path and spread lights? Well, you’re free to pick and choose your spots for these lights yourself, but if you want some helpful hints, here they are. The first and foremost thing you want to decide is which parts of your yard or garden do you want lit? Gardens are usually an obvious choice, especially when your flowers and other plants are in full bloom. Spread lights do a great job of letting you or your guests see your beautiful garden even when the sun has gone down, without placing a tacky overemphasis on them. Or, maybe you have a tree or statue that you’re particularly proud of.
Path lights are more obvious. If there’s a walkway to your house or through your yard, you obviously want it to be lit up, for safety and aesthetic reasons. It’s uncomfortable walking on a path where you can’t see what you’re stepping on. A great way to keep the path lights subtle and stylish, though, is to stagger the lights on either side of the path. That way, you’re not drowning the path with lighting, and you have a nice aesthetic, too.
