On Opposite Day solar deck lights would be a terrible idea for your yard.
For those of you without kids, this means that solar lights are a terrific idea for your yard (on Opposite Day, black is white and up is down).
If you think ‘Opposite Day’ sounds like it could get a little annoying, you don’t want to experience a ‘World’s Slowest Walker’ competition. That will really test your patience.
Now that we’ve had a good discussion about childhood games and why you don’t want to play them, let’s get to the matter at hand: Solar lighting for your deck area.
Deck and patio lighting is one of the single greatest ways to go solar in a stylish and economical way.
Why are solar lights such a great idea? Why should you spend your hard earned money on these newfangled contraptions? To answer these excellent questions I’m going to break out the following points on solar lighting:
The Sun Provides Free Power
Solar lights run on the free power of the sun. This means that once you purchase them, you can keep your wallet in your pocket. There will be no additional charges to your monthly electric bill.
No Wiring Is Required
A deck can be a difficult and costly place to run wiring. With solar lights you don’t have to worry about this hassle because these lights are self-contained and no wiring is required.
There Are Many Styles Available
The sheer number of solar lighting styles available will ensure that you find the perfect solution for your needs. There are solar lanterns to hang from above or solar post lights that attach to the top of any deck post. There are also recessed or “flush mounted” solar lights that are installed right into your deck. Should I go on?
Solar Lights Are Versatile
A solar powered light can add light to practically any area. Whether it’s a deck, patio, path, driveway, or treehouse, there’s a solar lighting solution for you.
Your Yard Will Be Safer
Isn’t safety supposed to be first? I purposely kept safety last on this list because it tends to be an overlooked benefit of solar powered lighting. It’s a very real benefit, however, since solar lights can light up potentially dangerous places and prevent trips and falls.
This will make sure your family and friends stay safe (and that you won’t have to face any unfortunate lawsuits).
I hope these points were enough to convince you that solar lighting is the ideal way to add some style and functionality to your deck area.
Here’s a quick recap for those of you who have already forgotten: Solar lights take advantage of free energy from the sun, they don’t require any wiring, there are many styles available, they are versatile, and they make your yard a safer place.
There’s only one time that solar deck lights are a terrible idea…
You guessed it, Opposite Day.
