Jun 4, 2008
Today there are numerous different styles of decorative solar lighting one can choose from to help enhance the look of your garden. Even if you do not have a garden just a terrace or a balcony this form of outside solar lighting can help to bring it to life for you.

1. Terracotta Sphere Solar Lantern - To add a touch of ambience to an outdoor living space then these forms of decorative solar lighting are ideal. Can be placed either around the edges of your patio or decking or on tables. Each sphere comes with shapes cut out of the sides which produce a silhouetted lighting effect.

2. Firefly Solar Light - These come with a stainless steel stake which allows you to place them anywhere you want in your garden. On top of the stake is a very beautiful hand blown cracked glass globe which at night emits a very pale glow in the garden. Although mainly used as a decorative form of lighting can also be used as accent lighting to show up dark obstacles or to help light the route of a pathway.

The above two types of lighting offer a delicate and subtle way for you to add lighting to your garden. These are best used in areas where they can add a wealth of color and which can bring life back into a dull part of the garden.

3. A Floating Solar Light - This form of decorative solar lighting comes in a number of different colors and it is this which will be the color you see reflected on the water. The gently float on the water and during the day the solar panel collects energy from the sun which it then converts to power to run the light within. These are not only very easy to install and get set up but cost you nothing to run once they are.

4. Rock Solar Lights - This type of outside solar lighting can be placed anywhere you want in a garden and provide a warm soft glow when they come on. They can be used as a way of marking a path in the garden or to highlight the steps up to a paved or decked area. You could even use these lights as way as highlighting the features of any particular plant or plants within your garden.

5. Garden Stepping Stone - This is a wonderful form of decorative solar lighting that one can buy for the garden today. These lights are ideal for marking pathways in the garden at night making it a much safer place for you and your guests to enjoy. Around the sides of the light is a solar panel which collects energy from the sun during the day and then releases it at night.
