Going Green in the Garden: Solar Lighting Provides Unique Effects

Solar lights are typically affordable and easy to use. Each has a battery, a solar panel, and a light source. Although many solar lights have self-contained solar panels, some styles offer a remote solar panel. This option can be useful if you want to illuminate shady areas, as you can locate the solar panel in the sun while placing the lights in the shade.

To get started with solar lighting, try a set of solar lights for your deck or patio. Once you try solar lighting for your lawn and garden, you probably may want to try more options. You can also buy solar powered holiday lighting, water features, and birdbaths in addition to traditional solar lighting. The ease of using solar lighting can provide hours of enjoyment with little effort.
