There are a few ways to light a pathway.  Nature occasionally cooperates with a full moon.  Go out some night when the moon is full and see if you can read a book.  Usually you can!  How much more pleasing and natural is the light that is filtered through the trees!  This is called downlighting for obvious reasons and is one of the most beautiful and the most difficult to install.

If you go to one of the DIY big-box stores, you can probably buy a “kit” for path lighting.  This picture is the end result.  It does the job but it doesn’t look very good.  The fixtures are in harm’s way and the look is anything but natural.

Here’s where the landing strip style comes from.  It works for airplanes where aesthetics are trumped by function.  Our feeling is to let the airport keep this functional and less than beautiful style.
