Outdoor home accents come in a variety of forms, including landscaping, gardening and painting. But when darkness rolls around each night, all of your work fades away into the darkness. There are lighting options available such as spotlight but most of these are overpowered and harsh, taking away from the style you have created. For a more subtle yet effective approach, consider using solar path lights to accent any part of your front or backyard. These lights don’t need annoying cables running to each post, they get their energy from the sunlight every day. At night, they come on automatically using a built in light sensor. Solar lights come in every style, color and shape imaginable to match any decor. Just a few lights bordering the walkway up to your front door can add a distinguished look.

Each solar light unit is self powered and has no cords whatsoever. This means that you can place them freely around your yard. On top of each light is a solar panel which converts sunlight into electrical energy. The energy is stored in a long lasting rechargeable battery pack inside of each light. These can work for many months before needing replacement. Using these lights removes you from the city electric grid, saving you money and helping the planet too. The natural white light is provided by energy efficient LED lights that can last for around 100,000 hours before needing replacement. Chances are the light itself will fall apart before you need to change any bulbs.
While not as bright as corded units, these lights provide enough light to see where you are going at night. A few solar lights placed in your garden or path really adds dimension to your yard and looks amazing. The lights are staked into any soft ground such as grass or soil. If you later decide that you want to rearrange the lights, just pull them out and place them in a new location. Styles range from modern to rustic. Most light systems have a colored plastic casing and accents. More expensive models are made of stainless steel which is long lasting and durable.
When you get them home, some minor assembly will be required. This is quite easy and can be done in a few minutes. The stake, light cover, and top will be in separate pieces. These snap together in just a few steps. As usual, make sure you count the pieces to make sure the manufacturer included them all in the box.
