Outdoor Solar Lights Are the Best Lighting Option For Your Yard

Jul 17, 2008
What are the real benefits of lighting your yard with Solar Lights? Any type of lighting in your yard and around your home at night can give many benefits, but you get even more benefits if you use outdoor solar lights to complete this task.

Up until quite recently if you wanted to install a lighting system outdoors you were faced with quite expensive installation costs for a standard landscape or yard lighting system whatever your reason for wanting it. Because of this high cost many were put off getting such a system and due to the necessary technical knowledge and skill required for a do-it-yourself installation many more were left without a system of outdoor lights to illuminate their garden or home at night.

With recent advances in technology outdoor solar lights have become cheaper and what is even more important they have become brighter and will illuminate your yard for longer. Early examples of outdoor light units powered by solar did not produce a very bright light and the light they did produce did not last all night.

Now you can easily find solar powered lights which are much brighter so that you can actually use them as flood lights and these newer versions are also able to store enough power from the energy they receive from the sun during the day to power themselves right through the night. However, the most important thing about solar lights is that they are incredibly easy to install. Installation is so simple that anyone can do it. Really you can do it!

No more messing with cables and ducting to run power through your yard to each individual light. No more worrying about the right place to put each light because once installed they won't be easy to move without repeating the whole installation process. Now the only technical knowledge required is how to install the battery and, if installing them above ground, how to put in a couple of screws with a screwdriver.

If you are doing a low level installation then most solar lights will come with a stake attachment. This means all you need to do is push the stake into the dirt and clip on the light. Just switch it on and you are done.

All you have to watch for when locating your lights is that the mini solar panel on the light is out of the shade so that it receives as much sunlight as possible during the day. The more light it gets the brighter it will be and the longer it will last through the night.

Because installation is so simple and no wiring is involved moving an outdoor solar light is easy too. This makes solar lights for landscape lighting in your yard very flexible and easy to manage and you can do it all on your own. And of course there is no electric bill for solar lights.

All solar light units are low voltage so there is now no risk of electric shock from mains electricity as there was with the old wired-in yard lighting systems. Other benefits are that costs are low, your yard looks great at night and safety and security around your home for you and your family is greatly improved.
