Landscaping with solar powered lighting

  1. 1. Landscaping With Solar Powered Lighting Solar powered lighting is one of the most powerful ways to light up your landscape while also avoiding the hassles common to other lighting projects. When you choose solar lighting, you avoid common hassles such as hiding wires, installing outdoor electrical outlets and moving lights from place to place. Solar lights are remarkably easy to move from place to place, making them a great choice for lighting the outdoor landscape. It can take quite some time to find the perfect location for exterior lighting, but solar lights are easy to move. The stake type solar lighting can be moved from place to place simply by pulling up the stake and moving it to a new location in the garden. One of the most important considerations when it comes to solar lighting location, of course, is to place the lights in a location where they will get plenty of sunlight during the day. It will of course be this sunlight that is stored for release after the sun has gone down. The more sunlight you can provide for the lights during the day, the more successful your outdoor lighting project can be. When choosing solar lighting for your outdoor landscape, it is important to apply the same criteria you would apply when choosing any other forms of lighting. The lighting you choose should be attractive, stylish, practical and of sufficient wattage to perform well for your needs. Most solar lighting is not as powerful as electric lighting, but these stylish and attractive lights make a great choice for gardens, walkways, entrance doors and other areas of the home exterior. When it comes to lighting up the landscape, it is generally best to use a variety of low powered lights, in order to accent, and not overwhelm, the landscape. Solar lights are perfect for this purpose, making them a great and cost effective choice, especially in these days of rising energy costs. Accent lights add a pleasant glow to your landscape. Their relatively low level of illumination is designed to "mark a place," not illuminate an object or light a pathway. Due to their low light output, accent lights usually boast longer run times than other types of solar lights. In fact, it is not unusual for a quality accent light to run many nights on just a single day's charge. Accent lights typically use efficient multi-crystalline solar cells that allow them to charge even on cloudy days or in partially shaded areas. Many accent lights utilize amber LEDs to create an even softer ambiance than the standard white LEDs. Some of them also "flicker" to simulate candle light. Amber LEDs use less electricity than their white counterparts, which allows for even longer run times. Accent lights can be used to mark landscape hazards, such as a large rock that could be tripped over at night, or as garden features themselves. Compared to the other categories of solar lights, accent lights have the lowest light output and are the most affordable
