Solar Power Garden Lights – Enjoy Your Garden at Night
Solar power garden lights will transform your garden into a stunning outdoor space that you can enjoy at night as well as during the day. Solar power lights are easy to install since they have no wires. You can create unique walkways, small meditative areas, or use them to highlight a feature in the garden like a trellis or fountain. They cost very little to maintain so you can use as many as you like to create the garden of your dreams.
Here are some ideas from professional landscape designers to inspire you to create your own dream garden
Use solar step lights to provide soft background lighting
These are small and emit a soft white light. You can place these lights near a particular plant or tree to highlight it, or you can use them in groups to light the whole garden area softly. A semi-circle of them around a fountain will put focus on the fountain without the light being overpowering.
Or you can place them along the banks of a natural stream to shine on the water and to make it safe to walk near the water in the dark. If you want to sit and read in your garden at night soft step lights around your favorite chair will give you enough glow to read by without being blinding. They can be very versatile for decorating.
Create your own garden paths
Instead of just lighting the main path through the garden use short solar power garden lights to create winding paths throughout the entire garden. Because they are wireless you can place them even in the most dense parts of the garden. Change the paths whenever you want because they are easy to move and install somewhere else. You can even create mazes for holidays like Halloween.
Create an outdoor conversation area
Sitting outside in your garden to talk with friends at dusk or in the evening is a lovely way to enjoy your garden. To create an inviting outdoor conversation area, add some sturdy seating, such as cane chairs or wicker chairs to a small clearing in your garden.
Place solar lights at different heights behind and next to the furniture. You can even hang some solar lanterns in the trees to softly illuminate the area. Make sure that you place some lights along the path to the conversation area too so that the area is easy to find even in the dark.
The solar power garden lights will provide enough light for you to see your friends and to see the beautiful garden all around you, without being so bright that the light is blindingly uncomfortable.
