A quick guide to solar landscape lighting products.

Solar landscape lighting is a great option for all kinds of outdoor lighting applications, in the garden, around the patio, on the deck, or even on driveways, stairs and pathways.

There are two main advantages to using solar landscape lights:

1. They run entirely on free, clean energy from the sun, so you save on your power bills, and you help to conserve precious environmental resources. So long as the solar panel receives enough sunlight during the day, your solar outdoor lights should run for a few hours in the evening when you need them.

2. They are incredibly easy to set up. You don’t have to work out how to connect the lighting fixtures to mains power, and you don’t have any unsightly wiring to hide. Usually all you need to do to install outdoor solar lights is to choose a good position, then just plant them in the ground. If you decide to do a little reworking of your landscape lighting design, you can easily just pick the lighting fixtures up and move them around.

Solar lighting design options.

The possibilities really are limited only by your imagination. You’ll probably be surprised at just how many varieties of landscape lighting fixtures are available as a solar powered product. Some examples are:




lighting for deck railings and post caps

recessed lighting

garden accents

pool and pond lights

motion sensor lights

To see or not to see your solar lighting fixtures.

If you don’t want to see your lighting fixtures in the garden, there are solar lighting products which are designed so that both the fixture and the solar panel are as unobtrusive as possible. On the other hand, you may choose solar outdoor lighting fixtures which are designed to work as ornamental features of your landscape design in themselves. The choice is yours.
