Taller than ordinary landscape lights, street lanterns provide more illumination and character to outdoor spaces. There are many styles from which to choose, including contemporary and traditional, to match a number of different architecture designs. Their broad spread of light provides an element of safety and comfort, adding a welcoming glow to larger landscapes so they will continue to be appreciated even after the sun sets.
Where Street Lanterns Work Best
For larger, more expansive properties, it's fun to consider street lanterns when creating an outdoor lighting scheme. By installing them in garden-type areas, near pools and on decks, you instantly add a feeling of grandeur and romance to the property. For long driveways, consider placing several on either side of a gate and the drive to welcome and guide guests toward your home.
Other Great Options
To serve as similar purpose as that of street lanterns, look to post lights. Post lights can be mounted along the driveway to add helpful, guiding light or you can add them to your backyard to add to your landscape lighting scheme. And if it's a large amount of light you need, consider security & flood lamps for lighting signs and increased safety.
