Guide to Solar Garden Lights

Sometimes the best option is the one that's staring us in the face. In the case of powering garden and outdoor lighting systems, that could well be the sun.

Yes, the big old yellow orb in the sky is able to provide a plentiful - especially here in Australia - supply of energy to fire a collection of lighting for your garden and outdoor space. But how best to tap into this possibility and design a garden lighting collection that works to its best? Here is a guide to Solar Garden Lights to point you in the right direction.

The Benefits of Solar Garden Lighting

Solar lighting in the garden has a whole wealth of benefits. Firstly, and speaking of wealth, the price of powering the light costs nothing at all. Unlike other methods used to power lighting systems, harnessing the natural power of the sun comes at no extra charge. Once you've made the initial outlay of buying and setting up the lights, that's it. No more charges, just reliable lighting.

Another great benefit is to the the environment. Solar energy does not pollute and does no damage to the world. As more and more people and businesses become environmentally aware and attempt to minimise their detrimental impact on the world, looking at the processes that go in to our everyday life makes more and more sense. Lighting is part of this, and another way to take out any potential for power waste or environmental damage should be welcomed.

Solar garden lighting systems also win praise for how easy they are to install. Often it simply involves choosing a sensible spot for the lights and then inserting them into the ground. It involves very little effort and, once night falls, you will soon be able to see the lights in action.

Another good point in solar lighting's favour is the safety aspect. As all of the energy is solar the power is safe and stable and does not have the potential for sudden power surges. Solar lighting systems also remain working if there is a local power outage, making the outdoor area safe if you are using solar lighting as a security measure.

Another great benefit is that solar lights often arrive in modern minimalist designs, well shaped to blend in well with the garden. Often they will only become obvious when lit up after night fall. During the day while powering up on the sun's rays, they will not be prominent, just sitting in the garden on stand-by.

Tips for Positioning

Now you've decided to use solar lighting in your garden, you need to decide where to place them.

The main things to remember are:
1. Try to highlight the main feature in your garden or yard. Favourite plants, water features, garden paths and outbuilding can all be lit up with correctly placed lighting.
2. As you are using solar equipment, being in full view of the sun during the day is of paramount importance. Make sure there are no obstructions and that the panels for the lights get enough sunlight.
3. Prepare the ground. You can soften the ground before installation with a little water or by breaking up hard ground with a fork or shovel. Avoid trying to install a light stake into very hard ground, as this may damage the unit.

Types of Outdoor Solar Lighting

Solar powered lighting arrives in a variety of types. The most common type are spike mounted lights that contain a panel at the back. Useful for lighting paths and walkways, they are simple to set up and cope well with most weather conditions.

Solar powered LED lights are great for a broader range of lighting, and work well well raised off the ground on a platform.

Lantern style lights are another popular type of solar lights. They are great for adding a decorative touch to garden features such as swimming pools, ornamental shrub-land and as accent lighting for ornaments and garden displays.
