Driveway lighting is a great way to elevate your home’s curb appeal and also makes it easier to navigate around your property. Are you looking to install lighting for your driveway, but aren’t quite sure what your options are? You’re in the right place! In this article, we’ll take a look at the different types of ways to illuminate your driveway, and what it can do for your home. 

What Are the Benefits of Driveway Lighting?

Driveway lighting is an important addition to any home with a driveway. If your house is set back from the street, adding lights to your driveway can help frame your property at night, adding a stylish touch to any yard. You can also use driveway lighting to showcase any trees or shrubs that you have growing alongside your driveway. 

As well as enhancing your home’s appearance, lighting your driveway also helps to make your home safer. By ensuring your property is well-lit at night, you’re less likely to have any security issues such as unwanted visitors or break-ins. Lighting your driveway also makes it easier for visitors to find your home and navigate from the street to your front door. 

What Options are Available from Houston Lightscapes?

At Houston Lightscapes, we use low-voltage, long-lasting LED lights to light your driveway. With durable brass fixtures, these lights are low maintenance and perfect for illuminating your outdoor areas and adding ambience to your property. 

When it comes to lighting your driveway, there are a few different styles of lights you can choose from. Ultimately, the choice comes down to the aesthetic you’re looking for, and how much lighting you need for your specific driveway. Here are some of the most popular ways to light up your driveway among our customers. 

Tree lighting is a great choice if you have trees lining your driveway. Trees act as a natural barrier along your driveway, and help to frame the entry to your home. If your driveway is lined with trees, you can use lighting for your driveway that illuminates both the trees and the driveway itself. This provides a real ambiance to your property’s exterior, and helps to tie your home back into the nature around it. 

Path lighting is the classic driveway lighting. LED path lights can be installed at even intervals along your driveway, either on one side or (more commonly) both sides. Path lighting is a simple and elegant way to light your driveway and yard. 

Moon lighting is another option if you have trees along your driveway. Moon lighting is down lighting, so the lights would be placed in the trees, shining down onto your driveway. Moon lighting gets its name because this creates a similar effect to the moon, casting dappled shadows over your driveway. If you don’t need your driveway brightly lit, but would instead like to create extra ambiance, this is a great choice.
