Lights built into a natural stone wall

We, Artistic Landscapes LLC, have used a variety of methods to illuminate stonework.  Depending on the situation and the amount of light that is desired and whether or not the light fixture should be seen, we may cast the light from a directional light or an area light, but we also mortar light fixtures directly into a natural stone wall as we build the wall.

For this family, we installed lights that have face plates on the front as our goal is to get some of the light across the 4′ wide walkway (the light fixtures are installed within 12″ of the walkway).  By utilizing this type of fixture, the fixture will not be in the way during snow removal and the light from the LED lightbulbs provide sufficient light across the walkway that leads to the primary entrance for this family.
