Searching for 120 voltage path lights online is not that easy – the rise in popularity of solar and low voltage path lights means that there aren’t that many mains powered lights to choose from. For garden pathway lighting I usually use either solar or 12 volt lights due to their ease of fitting. With 120v lights it can be difficult and expensive to run the cables to the lights around the garden. That being said, with a new garden where you are starting from scratch they can be useful if you site the cables before the garden is constructed. Due to their expense I recommend to use them sparingly and only in places where you want high quality, permanent garden lights – driveway lighting or to light the main pathway around the house.
It is worth looking at the other types of path and driveway lights available before making the investment in these 120v lights. Have a look at my posts about solar path lights and low voltage path lights – they can often be cheaper and more flexible to use.
Below I have selected a few good quality 120 volt garden path lights – check them out and see what you think.

Bollard Driveway Lights
Driveway lights can create a fantastic looking effect especially in longer driveways. The important thing to remember is not to over do it – too many driveway lights can make your drive look like an airport runway – not a good look! The extra expense of 120 volt driveway lights can be worth it for some but do your homework – long driveways need more lights and more cable. People often forget to consider the cost of the cable and it can add a lot to your final costs.
