As the summer months drift lazily on, there are more and more opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors. Whether entertaining guestsÂ in your backyard or simply sitting solo with a good book into the evening is your style, youâ€™re certain to run into a classic summer problem: the weather is still warm and comfortable, but the sun has gone down, forcing you to retreat indoors. Once again, Backyard Xscapes has the answer to your most vexing questions – the use of solar lights can easily and cost-effectively solve your outdoor lighting dilemma.
Solar lights capitalize on one of the Earthâ€™s most reusable resources â€“the sun. A solar panel within the unit â€śstoresâ€ť the energy from the sunâ€™s rays during the day and subsequently emits this energy through LED light bulbs at night. Most solar lights turn off and on automatically with the help of Â high-tech darkness sensors, making them both easy to use, waste free and an integral part of any intention to “go green.”
To make your life even simpler, solar lights donâ€™t require a connection to the house power source and therefore do not require any confusing wiring or outlet planning. Positioning is the only tactical consideration as the bulbs require direct sunlight during the day in order to operate at full capacity at night.Â They usually consist of two or less parts making them easy to assemble, easy to move and easy to install.
To add to the growing list of benefits to solar lighting,Â they will not add to your electric bill, produce environmentally harmful emissions or become dangerous in any way. Children and pets cannot be electrocuted or burned because there is no electricity involved and the bulbs are always cool to the touch. The lights can be placed anywhere that is lit by direct sunlight during the day, with no consideration for potential water spills or contact with upholstery or other flammable materials.
