Solar accent lights offer an affordable and attractive way to highlight your garden art while making your property safer and more secure. Why only enjoy the beauty of your garden during daylight hours when such a simple solution will light up your landscaping during the evening hours as well? Solar accent lights are easy to install, simple to use and a pleasure to enjoy.
While there are different types of solar accent lights available, all are simple to use and easy to install without having to involve an electrician. Solar spotlights and landscape lights usually only need to be inserted into the ground as they are mounted on a stake. There is no wiring to install as the built-in solar panel collects energy during the day to charge the rechargeable batteries that light the fixture after dark. What could be easier?
Since the lights use no electricity, operating costs are practically zero! Once you have paid for the fixture, there are is no need for any further spending on your garden lighting other than replacing the rechargeable batteries every few years. In addition to reducing your lighting cost, solar accent lights are environmentally friendly, reducing the consumption of the fossil fuels most commonly used to produce electricity.
Solar lights provide a different type of light than traditional lighting sources. While not as bright as incandescent and fluorescent lights, the light-emitting diodes provide a more subtle, less glaring light that can heighten and accentuate a garden path, shrubbery or flower bed. They also last much longer and do need replacing like ordinary light bulbs.
Solar accent lights come in many styles and designs and are an attractive addition to any garden. You can choose a style that fits the mood you are trying to convey whether it is a modern feel or a classic ambiance, something elegant or perhaps something more functional.
While you may use your solar accent lights simply to create a more beautiful nighttime garden, you will also receive the added benefit of more security and better visibility. Lighting a garden path with a soft glow will not only make it more pleasant to walk that path at night, but it will make it easier to navigate in the darkness and deter any trespassers who might be tempted to in any way spoil your midnight stroll.
When it comes to lighting your nighttime garden, there is really only one way to go! Style and elegance combine with beauty and functionality to make solar accent lights the perfect choice for your garden decor.
There are so many different types of garden lights that if you had just one of each of the main styles you could easily blind your neighbors and draw traffic to a stop. It's easy to go overboard when adding lighting to your yard and garden, but restraint is one of the hallmarks of good décor. Find the lights you love the most and use them sparingly to get the biggest effect and impact, for a truly impressive nighttime garden.
Novelty, Shaped and Unique Lights
Garden gnomes are kind of old hat, but have a few in your garden with glowing lights in their noses or bellies and add a bit of fun to your garden. Gnomes that glow at night are far from the only novelty lighting shape available. Turtles with lights in their shell, and shapes that glow from within are popular and common solar garden lights. You can find almost any variety in low-voltage lighting, too.
String lights are fun and come in truly funky styles, but it's almost more of a surprise to see a lovely little garden statue turn into a light fixture at night, particularly if the light is colored or very soft. Solar fixtures tend to burn less brightly than LED solar lights or low-voltage lights, so if you're going solely for mood, solar novelty lights are perfect.
One of the best ways to determine which novelty lights are best for you is to look around your garden in the brightest part of the day.
