Installing Solar Lighting

Solar landscape lighting is some of the best to use around your home and garden. They come in a variety of string lights, post lights, mounted lights, and pathway lights. One of the biggest reasons that people will use these is because they do not use up any energy. With other landscaping lights you could spend $30 or more a month extra for lights.

Because there is no electricity running to these lights you do not have to worry about stringing any wires around your yard. It costs extra to lay down wire in your yard and forces you to dig up dirt and grass. Discover how easy it is to install these solar lights on your own.

When purchasing walkway lights make sure that you have enough to line up both sides of it. These can be placed around the front walkway, driveway, pool, or deck. They come in a variety of metal finishes that are copper, bronze, and silver.

Remove the lights from their packages and place them upright in the ground where they will be receiving the most amount of sunlight throughout the day. You need to install them on a day that is bright and clear with no chance of rain.

Allow the light bulb to charge for twelve hours before you start to look for any sign that it is working. This will give the batteries enough time to charge up. When laying down the lights make sure they are spaced evenly apart.

The soil that you place them in should be slightly damp so that you can push it in easily. Make sure to compact the dirt around the bottom to keep it secure. At night wait for them to turn on and watch how they liven up your yard.

When you are installing any type of hanging, string, or fence solar lights all you need to do is make sure that they are properly secured and in an area that receives enough light throughout the day. Placing them underneath a group of trees or inside shrubs will make it difficult for the solar panels inside to catch sun rays.
