Solar powered landscape lighting provides the homeowner with a decorative way to illuminate their garden at night, without the necessity of running power wires. There are a plethora of types to suit every landscape, type of flowers in the garden and yard size. They use sunlight to energize solar cells which store the power in batteries and in turn produce light during hours of darkness. Solar yard lighting works in the same way as any other solar lights but differ in their purpose - they are used to bring light to the yard after dark.
Solar yard lights come in many different forms. They vary greatly in the shape of the solar panels, the material from which the housing is made, along with the light's base. Many of these lights are now made from plastic; others from metal. The kind you ultimately select will depend on your requirements. We will now take a little look at the different types of solar landscape lights we have and how each would fit into your landscape design.
Solar landscape lights come in tall designs. These ones are appropriate for yards with mature trees and for the drive. Given their height, they're able to spread out their light over a larger area. These are highly recommended for gardens with trees close to one another.
Ground stake solar powered yard lighting provides light at a very low level off the ground. It is generally used for yard paths or entrances. These lights are normally made from aluminum so they have the ability to take the impact from accidental kicks and falling rock.
There are also those types of solar landscape lights that are hung overhead. These ones fit those gardens with large branched trees. They are not that heavy so they can normally be nailed on a tree branch (or trunk) without risk of injuring passers by. This type is also suitable for yard entrances so as to provide illuminated passages.
There is another style called the solar yard spot light. These are very tall and look like football stadium flood lights. They are used for larger yards with lots of trees. Again, you would need them if you hold back yard events with large numbers of guests.
Each solar garden light that you buy comes with a full set of installation hardware. The set will typically include a solar panel, along with ground and over head installation brackets.
Solar yard lights enhance the beauty of one's garden at night; they add a new level of glamor to your yard and make it beam with style.
It is imperative that you take all the factors into consideration when buying solar powered garden lights. Be on the lookout for the most worthy ones that are weather-proof and will hold up in very cold temperatures. Again you will most likely need to get ones that will need less upkeep over the years and those that have easily replaceable spare parts. Your solar yard lights must preferably be easy to wipe clean. Depending upon the look of your yard, you will also have to select between wooden or stainless steel, as determined by your requirements. The garden's terrain may also indicate which type of material or casing to ultimately go for. If you are buying overhead solar landscape lighting and live in a stormy area of the country, you must also consider types that are strong and can stand up to the impact of high winds etc.
Solar garden lights add style to ones garden. They serve as a decorative way to liven up your garden.
