Using outdoor lighting is a great way to enhance the appearance of your yard, both the front yard and back yard. If you are building a new home it is easy to add lighting to your home designs because you can dig trenches to install wiring without disturbing existing landscape designs, but by using solar lights adding lights to an existing home is easy as well.
Solar pathway lights are one of the most common types of solar lights you normally see. While they are typically used to line pathways or walkways within your yard they can also be used for other types of landscape lighting. They can easily be used around a patio to help outline it and provide light. They can be used in a garden or landscaped area to add a cozy look and help show off your landscaping at night. They can also be used along a driveway as solar driveway lights.
Solar rock lights are another fun option because they provide light, but they don’t look like a typical light fixture. They look like a rock, but at night they light up to illuminate a patio, deck, garden or walkway. You can buy a set to create a uniform design, or you can buy a single unit.
If you want something really distinct you might consider colored solar lights. Some of them are even theme based, for instance you can find flower solar lights that provide an amber colored light to add to your flower garden. They are in the shape of a flower but at night they will illuminate offering a warm glow to this landscaped area.
As we become more environmentally conscious the selection of solar lights seems to increase. There are some really fun designs available and because they are powered by the sun they are very easy to install. They provide an easy way to enhance the appearance and even functionality of your outdoor space.
