Outdoor solar lighting fixtures work beautifully as garden accents or landscape lights.

Outdoor solar lighting is very safe, easy to install, and the perfect choice for anyone who is conscious of energy conservation.

You may be surprised at what a wonderful range of different solar landscape lights are available, including all kinds of garden accents, spotlights, floodlights, and even special fixtures designed to be used in and around water features.

Outdoor solar lighting kits are available from home hardware and landscape lights suppliers. The kits include everything you need to plan your landscape lighting design and install it yourself, including the lighting fixtures themselves, a solar panel to collect solar energy during the day, a battery to store it until it’s needed, and a controller to turn the lights on and off.

The controller might include a timer, or a light sensor which tells the system when it’s dark enough for the lights to be needed. Depending on the amount of sunlight you normally see in the garden, there will typically be enough energy to last a couple of hours, so your lights will shine during the early evening when you need them.

Outdoor solar lighting ideas.

Outdoor solar lighting fixtures come in a wide range of sizes, shapes, colors, styles and designs. There are landscape lights which can be treated as garden design features in themselves, both during the day and at night.

A quick search online will show you what a wonderful range of imaginative, decorative and sculptural pieces are available, in all kinds of materials including elegant stainless steel in a variety of finishes, or gorgeous solid brass, bronze and copper. You might even consider incorporating colored lights into your garden design. There are fixtures which come with changeable colored filters, and some are even made using stained glass.

Alternatively, you may want the fixture itself to be as unobtrusive as possible. Simple, elegantly designed lights work well as garden accents, as they illuminate a particular feature of the garden without drawing too much attention to themselves.

There are even lighting fixtures which are designed to resemble stones or pavers, so they’re camouflaged in the garden, particularly during the day.
