Using Solar Outdoor String Lights For Your Garden

Posted on 27th February 2011 in Home & Garden

Outdoor lighting projects can be challenging if you do not have any direct AC electrical power source. Part of the problem is that it can be extremely expensive if you need to upgrade your electrical system. In order to properly install outdoors lighting the best time to do so is when you are building your home, or performing major outside upgrades such as swimming pool installations.

If you do not have the time, energy or patience to worry about physical electrical cords, you may want to consider using solar outdoor string lights. This is a popular option due to the fact that you can place your lights anywhere, because you’re not limited by physical connections.  Another advantage to using solar powered lighting is that you do not have to manually turn them on and off.  These units are automatically programmed to turn on when it starts to get dark outside. Alternatively, most units also have a manual option, if you do not want them to turn on automatically.

Many of these outdoor string lights have come onto the marketplace because of the lower cost of LED, also known as light emitting diodes. LEDs come in a variety of different colors such as: white, blue, red and green.  The output luminance of the LED units has become increasingly higher, as you may have noticed even automobile companies are starting to use these on cars such as the Audi.

When you are purchasing your outdoor solar lighting kit, you can find the best prices by shopping online. Make sure that you always purchase at least a few extra lighting kits, in case you decide to increase the scope of the project.

Use outdoor string lighting for formal occasions such as hosting outdoor parties at night, wedding receptions, and other formal gatherings.  For certain occasions you can also save a lot of money by using your existing outdoor lighting kits. For example, if you have old Christmas tree lights that use regular white light bulbs.
