Using Solar Garden Decor in Your Garden
Garden decor comes in a variety of styles, colors, shapes, and sizes. There are water fountains, garden statues, decorative lights and more. Garden accents can consume a good amount of energy from a home. Outdoor water fountains, bird baths and decorative outdoor lights all work on electricity. Leaving these on all day and at night can produce a high energy bill. To avoid a costly bill consider using solar garden decor to accent your garden. There is not much difference in product offerings between regular garden decor and solar garden decor. You can find many of the same decorative items with or without solar capability. Using solar garden decor will let you enhance the curb appeal of your home and beautify your garden without high energy costs.
Solar garden fountains bring the relaxing sound of water and help create a sense of privacy. They can mask unwanted noise from the street or a noisy neighbor. Not only are they great at creating a soothing and relaxing feel in the back yard but also look great in the front of the house. It will be the first thing a visitor will notice as they approach your home. Water fountains help to create a positive mood in people.
Solar garden statues add fun and interest to any garden. There are many types of solar garden statues available. Some popular ones are a gnome holding a lantern, an angel holding a globe of light. You may also
come across other characters like fairies, frogs and puppies. These garden characters make for great conversation pieces. The statues give a garden character and depth during the day and are great accent lights at night. They can be placed to light up other garden decor or special parts of a garden at night. Make sure to put them in a place where visitors and guests are likely to see them when visiting.
When the day turns to night, it’s nice to have lights turn on and light up the house and yard. Solar lights are a great choice for lighting your garden or yard. They are affordable and easy to install. Since they don’t require any wiring they can be easily placed around the yard and far from any electrical source. Solar lights come in a wide selection of shapes and sizes. They can be made of plastic or metal. Some are tall like lamp posts and some are as short as 12 inches. Solar lights are great for path lighting and accent lighting. Solar hanging lanterns work great as path lights illuminating the way through the garden. Lamp post style lights are perfect for perimeter lighting around the yard or a pool. Solar lights add character and ambiance to the house and landscape and are perfect for security and safety purposes.
Solar garden decor is easy to set up and install. There are no electrical wires or power cords that need to be run or dealt with. This makes them safe for children and pets. You save money by not having to hire an electrician to run any wires and also save on your energy bills. Make sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions on any care and maintenance that is required. Also, make sure to position the solar panels to receive the most amount of sunlight as possible during the day so the internal batteries get a proper charge.
