Five Ways Path Lighting Can Lead You Through Louisville’s Long Dark Winter Nights

At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Louisville, outdoor lighting is all we do! Our expert lighting designers work closely with each and every client to create a custom LED outdoor lighting design to meet their individual needs. Winter is often a time when homeowners feel the pain of long dark nights, stuck indoors and getting cabin fever. Leaving for work in the dark and arriving home in the dark can make it feel as if summer will never return. Adding well-designed LED path lighting strategically to your property can chase away the dark nights of winter, providing visibility and subtle illumination to minimize the winter blues and get you through to spring.

We recommend the top five path lighting ideas to make every corner of your property functional 24 hours a day, 365 days a year:

Path Lighting for Gardens

LED path lighting is a perfect way to subtly highlight your gardens and landscape beds. With the ambient glow they create on your flowers, shrubs, and along the perimeter of your landscape edging, path lighting is a great way to enjoy the splendor of your landscape after dark.

Path Lighting for Patios

There are many outdoor lighting techniques we can implement for patio lighting, but one of our favorites is to gently illuminate the surrounding landscape for a perimeter glow. This defines the edges of your patio and creates a level of light that is well-suited for a relaxing evening on the patio.

Path Lighting for Entertaining Areas

From pools, hot tubs, sand volleyball courts, swing sets, and tennis courts, Louisville residents enjoy outdoor recreation at home. These spaces are sometimes rendered unusable in the short days of winter. With the addition of path lighting nearby, you can add visibility so that on milder winter days you can enjoy a more active lifestyle after work.

Path Lighting for Walkways & Driveways

The quintessential reason for path lighting is to illuminate dark paths. Your sidewalks, walkways, garden paths, and driveways will be more visible for safe navigation during the long nights of winter. This will help you avoid tripping hazards, slippery spots, and potential mishaps.

Path Lighting for the Darkest Corners

Many properties have a dark corner here or there. The alleyway where you keep your trash can, the back corner of your deck, or maybe a small wooded area around back. These areas can provide treacherous walking conditions and places for potential intruders to hide. Our custom designed outdoor lighting designer will assess these dark corners that might present a hazard and provide a recommendation which often is as simple an LED path light to cast a gentle wash across the area. Minimizing your scary trip to the trash bin with a little more lighting for your Louisville property.
