Driveway Indicator Lights

There are many ways to light a driveway and selecting the best fixture for the job is dependent on the terrain around it. For instance, we often downlight driveways from nearby tall trees or structures. Another less common way to light a drive would be to use the traditional path light. But what if there are no established trees nearby to downlight from and what if there is no flower bed to place traditional path lights? We never suggest a traditional path light be placed in turf where mowers and weed eaters can bang them up. In situations like this, in-ground driveway indicator lights are a great solution.

Benefits of Driveway Indicator Lights:

  • Niche Light Fixture - An effective solution to identifying a driveway after dark when few other alternatives are possible.
  • Effective - Very effective when used as a marker light to identify the edge or entrance to a drive.
  • Low Profile - These fixtures are recessed into the concrete & fixed in place, so there is no concern over the fixture getting displaced and the low profile of the fixture prevents them from being a trip hazard.  
  • Robust Construction - The fixtures are heavy duty and designed to allow for vehicles to drive over them.
  • Versatile - Can be added onto any existing low voltage landscape lighting system or installed with a new system.
  • Attractive Modern Design - Has a sleek design that combines both form and function.

Cons of Driveway Indicator Lights:

  • Light Distribution - The fixtures don't distribute as much light as a traditional path light or a tree mounted downlight would.
  • Requires A Professional to Install - Require core drilling into the drive (only a con if someone tries to do this and doesn't know what they're doing).
  • Can Be Costly - Due to the challenge of installation, they tend to be more expensive than a traditional path light
