With bollard lights, you can combine overhead and ground-level lights to create the ultimate ambiance around the exterior of your home. Bollards help you create the best of both worlds. Bollard lights are lights that have been placed on a bollard. A bollard is a post that is located somewhere to create a boundary. An example of this is placing bollards around the edge of your garden to separate the driveway.
When lights are placed on the bollards, you can increase the effectiveness of the barrier that it represents. You can also illuminate landscaping in the garden as well as the pathway from the driveway to the front door. It's vital that you have a way of showing people where to walk so that they don't walk through the grass or the garden. Bollards are also important for marking out where your driveway is so that people don't confuse the grass for a place to park. Additionally, if you have some impressive landscape in your garden and want to draw attention to it, you can place a boundary of bollards around the exterior.

Alternatively, there is the option of having a standard cone reflector bollard. This is when the light shines 360 degrees, so everything is illuminated equally. If you want the light to only be reflected out and down, try using a specialized cone reflector bollard. This can also help to reduce how much light pollution your bollard emits and minimizes any glare. Lastly, try a type V glass reflector bollard if you want a more intense lighting look. This type of bollard is also preferable if you're going to spread them out and use less overall.
When you're deciding where to place your bollards in the garden, try to stagger them and keep the line a little random. If it's too straight, it's going to look staged. If you like the idea of them adding to the aesthetic of your garden, try installing them in a zig-zag pattern for random yet appealing illumination.
