Accentuating with Garden Spot Solar Powered Lights

Garden Spot solar lighting can improve the look of your garden as well as save you money. Owning and maintaining a beautiful garden is a very satisfying endeavor. It adds value and character to the home. Lighting your very own private paradise at night will extend its utility. You can entertain guests in the cool garden and have space for the children to play at night. If your home has large picture windows, lighting up the garden at night will make your house seem more spacious than it really is and bring in the freshness from outside. It makes the home more relaxing and so good to come home to.

Although lighting up the whole garden would be beautiful, accenting certain aspects of it will add drama and class to the garden. A series of garden spot lights focused on a walkway would be nice and so functional. A spotlight trained on a collection of blooming azaleas will bring more color to your world. If you happen to own a Grecian sculpture, it cannot do without its own spotlight. It would almost be a sin if you do not have a spotlight for each of your bonsai.

Garden lighting fixtures come generally in two kinds.

There is the more economical solar garden spot lights and then there is the electric. The solar kind will not increase your power bill. It has a solar collector and saves energy in a battery. When the sun goes down, it usually will turn on by itself. The most common type is the stake. All you have to do is push the stake into the ground and focus the light where you want and it will start working.

The electric garden lighting available is the electric kind. This will have to be wired directly onto the electric grid of your home. It is usually also brighter than the solar garden spotlight.

Both solar and electric types of lighting are available in several types; so many are available that it might take time for you to make a decision. Consider your home decorating ideas and choose the garden lights that best suit everything. You will also have to make the decision on what type of bulb you want to use, LED, halogen, incandescent, or florescent. They all have their pros and cons. Halogen and incandescent lamps give off a warmer tone of light which are good for red, orange, and yellow hues. While florescent and LED lamps are cooler and will accent blue, purple, and violet. LEDs and florescent lamps also are kinder to your power bill.

Light up your garden and create your own private paradise. It will afford you relaxation and peace, and it will increase the value of your home.
