Solar-powered Lights Add Sparkle to the Night

Share this on:

Now that the days are filled earlier with darkness, it’s the perfect time to brighten up your outdoor spaces.  Solar-powered lights are ideal since they add nothing to your electric bill, and they come in such a wide assortment, there’s a light for practically every situation!

  • An arbor or trellis
  • Streetlamp style lights for your front yard, patio or pool areas
  • Motion-sensor lights
  • Safety Lighting for Steps
  • Spotlights for Trees, sculpture, architectural features
  • Accent/decorative pieces (lanterns, windchimes, garden stakes, house numbers, even color-changing objects)
  • Pathways/walkways
  • Porches and patios
  • Deck and fence railings & posts

By soaking up the sun during the day, many of these solar lights can light up all night!  You can find solar-powered lighting at your local hardware store and at many online retailers.
