What Are the Best Solar Lights for Your Yard?

June 29, 2020

Renewable energy, and particularly solar energy, has become increasingly popular in the past couple of decades. Solar lights have become especially popular for lighting yards, walkways, and gardens. Whether you want to add some ambiance or make the switch over to solar energy, solar lights are an economic, reliable option. Mr. Electric of Dallas has years of experience dealing with these lights so you can rest assured knowing you have a trusted source to call for lighting installations, repairs, and maintenance. Here are some solar lights that we have experience with and can recommend for your property.

Solar Spotlights

You have put a lot of investment into your house and garden. Illuminate the architectural aesthetic of your property with energy-efficient solar spotlights. These spotlights allow you to light up particularly eye-catching parts of your home or landscape that are otherwise hidden in the dark at night. Most solar spotlights come on ground stakes, making them easy to relocate. When choosing a solar spotlight, put weight on how adjustable, weatherproof, and long-lasting it is. 

Solar Path Lights

Bring safety and security to your property with solar path lights. Light up your driveway and walkways to protect you from tripping while returning to your home. Solar path lights also provide an inviting atmosphere for your guests while they deter unwanted intruders. These are also often easy to install with stakes that can be pressed into the ground.

Solar String Lights

Solar string lights are an excellent option for backyards, decks, and patios. They can provide lighting as well as a warm ambiance for your evening get-togethers, cookouts, and relaxation. They also light up your garden to bring it to life during the dark of the night.

Pros and Cons of Solar Lights

Like everything in life, there is the good and the bad in solar lights. Let’s start with the pros:

  • Solar lights are good for the environment and good for your wallet in the long run.
  • Installing solar lights is easy and relocating is even easier.
  • There are tax incentives for going solar.
  • Solar lights provide gentle light.

The cons are fewer in number, but they are worth mentioning:

  • Solar light can be too blue, but there are ways around it.
  • Some models can be flimsy and not long lasting.
  • There is no solar power at night and your geography is very important.
