Lighting up a Garden with Solar Garden Lighting


Just about anybody who’s had or has a yard or garden has wanted to brighten them up. One way to do so is by improving garden lighting with solar lights. If you do a good job of picking them out and installing them correctly, you’ll see an immediate improvement in style and appearance. In fact, the whole yard — including pathways - can benefit from the easy installation of solar lighting packages.

Old-way energy costs were a sticking point. It used to be that in the old days, expensive conduit piping added to costs. Trenches of from twelve to eighteen inches needed to be dug, and then weather-resistant and long-lasting wiring ran from the house to each of the garden lights in a sequence. Let’s not forget that all those power needs had to be met by an additional fuse or circuit within the house. This required even more energy and added to the monthly electric bill. With solar lighting, though, that’s no longer a problem.

Energy savings are an attractive feature. Nowadays, solar lighting and garden lighting using solar technologies are a high priority for most anyone who desires a bit of outdoor light-type elegance in their gardens and landscaped yard areas. And because our sun provides all the energy needed, there’s practically little cost after the initial purchase and installation of these units.

You don’t need to wire in these new solar lighting systems. Almost every light needed to highlight a garden or a pathway exists as a self-contained, stand-alone unit. Each one comes with its own mini solar panel, which absorbs energy and then sends it for storage to a pair of tiny (Double-A size) batteries. Once darkness fails, a photosensor turns the light on and it draws energy from the batteries. At dusk, the photosensor cuts off power.

The ease-of-installation factor is high. If you follow the easily-carried-out instructions and flyers that come with solar lighting kits, you can quickly raise the visibility and brightness levels of any garden or pathway. And because almost all these lights are single or separate units, they’re easy to move around. That ease is gained by the fact they each have their own separate solar absorption capability. The energy is then stored in small rechargeable batteries which are switched on at dusk and switched off at dawn by means of each unit’s photosensor.

Who needs incandescent bulbs? Nowadays, super-cool and stylish light is gotten through the use of LED-type lights and not from old-style incandescent bulbs, which use energy at double the rate of the newer LED models. Because LEDs are so energy-efficient, they shine for longer on the same amount of stored energy within those battery units.

There’s a style and a package for any use. Garden lighting, or yard and pathway lighting, has never been as easy to accomplish as it is today. With such wide varieties available from all the top manufacturers it’s more a matter of picking out the number of lights you like. Once that’s decided, all that’s left is the installation. That’s also fairly simple and straightforward to do, these days. And because there are no wires involved, it’s relatively hassle-free.

Improving garden lighting with solar lights is becoming more-and-more a very simple thing to do. And today’s solar lights are at once both stylish and energy-efficient. Plus, the cost savings can put a glow on anybody’s face!
