How To Make Your Very Own Magical, Glow-In-The-Dark Driveway


If you’re up to date on your home and garden trends, you’ve probably heard about the newest craze for this summer: glow-in-the-dark driveways and pathways. You may think that glow-in-the-dark anything is best reserved for children, but not in this case.

Glow-in-the-dark driveways are a cheap and simple way to add a magical, unique element to your outdoor spaces. They’ll increase visibility in an environmentally-friendly way, since you won’t be using tons of energy for pathway lights or overhead lanterns. And in this regard, they’re better for your wallet, too!

Your first option would be a product like CORE Glow. CORE Glow pebbles provide eco-friendly light with no electricity required. The pebbles are beautiful yet subtle, making them ideal for driveways, pathways, flower beds, and more. During daylight hours, the UV rays charge the pebbles, allowing them to maintain a glow when the sun goes down. The pebbles will appear very radiant for the first while, then slowly fade as the night goes on.

If you’re not into the idea of doing an entire glow-in-the-dark driveway, there are also individual bundles of glowing pebbles you can buy. These pebbles are the perfect accents for planters, along flower beds, and even for embedding in cool designs around your patio or pool.

If you choose to go this route, you won’t be breaking the bank. A bag of about 100 glow stones retails for about $5. And if you get sick of them? Just remove them for a little while, or arrange them in a new pattern or area. There are also different colors of glow stones, so you can customize your design whichever way you want.

Sure, glow stones or a glowing driveway may not be for everyone. But it’s a relatively inexpensive, quick, and easy way to bring a magical element to your outdoor spaces. It’s also a practical way to effectively light up your walkways, making your yard a safer place for everyone at night. And as you already know, it’s an environmentally-friendly option.

Seems like a win-win to me!
