Path lighting is an important component of landscape lighting that extends your living spaces to include the outdoor environment as well as the hours of enjoyment into the night. It is intended to unify the relationship between pathway and landscape lighting in exterior environments. Path lighting creates visual expansion and continuity between the indoors and outdoors by highlighting plants, flowers, low shrubs, and ground cover. It also adds a layer of safety and security by creating pools of light that assists orientation and navigation. Landscape path lighting often refers to spread lighting which uses low-level, evenly dispersed illumination to accent landscape elements along walkways and to define areas to lounge and linger.
