Lighting Your Pathway in the Night Hours
There are numerous ways to light your pathway in the night time hours.
Here are a few ways to light a pathway:
- Wait for a moonlit evening sky;
- Live in a far northern region where the nights only last for an hour or two in the summer;
- Place a few lamp posts along the path, which are powered by electric coming from your house;
- Insert solar powered sidewalk lights aling the pathway;
- Fire up pisa torches which burn a paraffin or citronella oil;
- Light up some tiki torches and help keep the bugs away,
or, use a new technology, which is still in its infancy such as:
- Glow Paths. This is a tecnology developed in Poland, which is still in a testing phase. It is made from a synthetic material that can give out light for up to ten hours at a time once charged by the sun throughout the day. (The blue pathed photo below)
- Another version of the glowing path was developed in Netherlands, which uses glow in the dark pebbles and solar-powered LEDs. (The swirling designed pathway photo below)
It is certainly worth keeping an eye on these new technologies as they develop. They potentially can do more than light up your walkway or a bike path.
