Some Ideas For Using Outside Solar Lighting

May 8, 2008
There are many different ways in which one can use outside solar lighting. The only thing which will limit the way in which you use it is your own imagination. In this article we offer just a few ideas for the ways you can use outside solar lighting for helping to enhance the look of your garden.

Idea 1 - Spread some solar spotlights or decorative solar lighting around the garden in order to provide highlighting or make people focus on a particular item within your garden. Use these lights to show off a particular tree, plant or statute for example in the garden that would otherwise simply fade in to the background.

Idea 2 - Using shadowing can really enhance certain features within your garden. You need to situate the outside solar lighting very low down to the ground and in a position below the item that it is you wish to make a feature of at night in your garden. Ideally use either solar floodlights or spotlights below the object in order to enhance it further. If you can before you install the lights mount them on a post or stick so that when it comes to placing them in the ground you will find it much easier.

Idea 3 - Another idea is to mount the solar lighting as high up as you possibly can and then aim it down to shine directly on to the object or tree. By doing this when it lights up a tree it will then cause a dappled effect and make the area feel much softer especially good for soften angular lines within a garden.

Idea 4 - Rather than you placing the outside solar lighting directly over the object you are trying to enhance in your garden instead put the decorative solar lighting underneath it. This way those objects or plants which are quite tall and will be lost in the darkness of the garden at night can come into full view and be enjoyed no matter what time of day it is.

Because there are no wires that you need to run from your home to the lights in order for them to provide power you can place outside solar lights just about anywhere you want in your garden. All you need to make sure is that they are provided with direct sunlight throughout the day which they can store in the batteries inside before you turn them on and use them at night.

After you have chosen the position where the outside solar lighting is going to be placed and you have installed it should you then leave them for about a week (5 to 7 days) before you turn them on. By doing this you are actually allowing the batteries inside to become fully charged.
