Bollard Lights For Exterior Landscape Lighting

KB Electric LLC just finished an awesome job for a commercial property involving bollard lights. So today we are going to blog all about bollard lights, their usefulness, and who to call for installation.


What Are Bollard Lights?

A bollard light fixture is a type of fixture that is used for exterior landscape lighting that is ground-mounted. As pictured below, the light fixture is on a bollard, which is a short vertical post. Bollard lighting comes in various types and styles for individual preference. You’ll most likely see a bollard light on commercial properties along pathways and at the front of building entrances. These fixtures can also be used for residential landscape lighting as well. 

As with many other types of residential and commercial light fixtures, bollard lighting can either have LED, halogen, incandescent, metal halide, or fluorescent bulbs; however, the majority you will find now are of the LED type. LEDs are more energy efficient than their counterparts, and we recommend going with this option for efficiency, longevity of the bulb, and savings.
