Decorative Solar Garden Lights Beautify Your Garden
To say, "they aren't your mother's decorative solar garden lights" would be an understatement. No longer do you have to choose between chrome or brass but your choices have widened to colors, themes, hobbies or your favorite animal.
One of the many advantages to the subtle solar light is their ease of installation. There is no need to tackle electrical wires, no electrician needed and a minimal amount of difficulty in installing. Your biggest decision will be which of these lights you may want to install.
Rechargeable batteries make the power supply easy to obtain. You just need sunshine. The batteries may need to be replaced every few years, but that is less expensive than trying to replace underground wiring that has been cut by digging or by animals.
Consider your garden area. You may have some exotic blooms that should be highlighted. You can find decorative solar garden lights that are gnomes with bird feeders on top.
They will cast a soft light to enhance the beauty of the bloom. If you would like to emphasize a specific type of flower, you may be able to find one that is a light. Lilies are very popular choices because of their shape. Imagine the beauty of a softly illuminated lily in your lily garden.
Dark areas of your property can be illuminated with stake lights or wall lights. Your deck can be outlined in formal or whimsical style lighting that will provide a safe area in the evenings and outline the stairway or path that leads to the remainder of your property.
A lot of time and money goes into the installation of a water feature. It is something that most homeowners think about, long and hard before investing in it. What could be better than setting beautiful lighthouse decorative solar garden lights close to your water feature. It will draw the eye of your family and your guests to the beauty of the area.
Water lilies with solar lights can give the appearance of floating in your home pond. Along the side of the water feature you can have an intellectual turtle reading a book while providing light, or have an extra rock with a hidden light that only appears at dusk.
Solar lighting goes back several centuries. The first experiments reportedly occurred in 1860, when Auguste Mouchout put a kettle of water in a glass cube and produced steam as a result of the exposure to the sun. As solar power was studied and passed on through the decades, it became a feasible source of energy. It is a favorite for those who are environmentally savvy, and also for those who want to save money on their electrical bills without sacrificing style, safety and security.
Using the sun to charge the batteries that are incorporated in the solar lighting system also saves energy. You can have lighting that can be programmed to light as the sun sets and turn off when the sun rises. The lights turn off and the sun begins to charge the batteries in the lights.
From the simple to the elaborate, there are decorative solar garden lights that will complete the look of your garden and yard.
