Solar yard lights allow almost anyone to harness the power of the sun.
They're an inexpensive way to get started with solar power and improve your backyard or deck at the same time.
Before we get into the kinds of solar lights available, let's answer a more important question:
Why should you use solar outdoor lights?
Well, how's this for starters:
No wiring required
No electricity expense
No need to turn them on and off
Oh yes, and of course it's good for the environment
So, solar lights save you money since you don't have to pay for electricians or electricity, they are convenient because they turn themselves on and off, and on top of it all they will make you a card-carrying planet saver.
"Wow," you say. "Where can I get me some of these solar lights?"
Just hold your horses, let's take a look at some of the varieties of solar lights that are available:
One of the most common variety of solar yard light is an accent light attached to a spike which can be stuck into the ground. These are great for flower beds and pathways.
Another light that may suit your needs is the "lantern-style" solar light. These add a classy touch and come with a hook that the lantern hangs from.
