Imagine you are driving home, it's late, pitch-dark, and difficult to see the entrance of your driveway. Or, perhaps, you have a long, curved driveway that's always difficult to navigate at night.
These solid copper and brass LED driveway bollard lighting fixtures are the perfect solution to improve the visibility of a dark, long, or circular driveway. Bollards are sturdy fixtures, the soft light acts as guides when parking, entering, or exiting your drive, and they add appeal to a property.
Bollard Lights for a Driveway
Determining the correct spacing and proportion is extremely important when planning the design and installation of bollard lights for a driveway. You want to avoid placing the bollards too closely together and, as a result, ending up with a look similar to airport runway lights.
At McKay Landscape Lighting, we stagger driveway bollard lights to avoid the "runway" look and carefully consider their placement and sizing. For example, you wouldn't want to install a bollard near where a car door might hit or where snow develops and bollards disproportionate to the size of your property. During the installation, we pour concrete footings to help ensure the bollards are not affected by the heave of a frost.
Popular Styles of Bollard Driveway Lights
Bollard driveway lights are a great option for gently lighting a long driveway and elegantly enhance a property at night. They emit enough light to improve visibility and come in a variety of styles and finishes.
Decorative light bollards, as shown above, act as statement pieces during the day and then create the most extraordinary shadows at night. We share our popular driveway bollard fixture styles that are certain to enhance your property while increasing nighttime safety. Whether you're looking for a contemporary or traditional style, our designers can help you find a bollard light fixture to match the look of your home.
