There are several wholesalers and dealers in the market from where you can get lights. If you wish to have a grand display in your outdoors, you will have to procure sufficient lights. It is essential that you visualize the kind of outdoor setting you wish to have. Then you could list down the lights and tools needed.
Once you assemble everything, it will not be difficult for you to arrange the lights. Icicle lights are very common and popular in the festive season.
They glow beautifully. If you choose programmed LED lights, then you can display various colors to represent the holiday. These lights do not emit a lot of heat. They are environment-friendly and reasonable.
Apart from that, you can use these lights not only for Christmas but other occasions as well. You could change the colors depending on the season and have a display accordingly.

You could use the staple for zip tie or twist tie. Outdoor holiday lighting looks beautiful, but you must follow all safety instructions while fixing as well as when removing the lights.
Solar Lights Introduction
The best time for the sun to shine is at night — that way it illuminates the darkness.
Solar lights allow the sun to shine at night by capturing the light produced in the daytime, storing that energy, and then releasing it at night to create light.
At night, solar lights can provide low-intensity path markers, offer highlights to a garden, display colors against a water fountain, or provide a lighted object of amusement as an illuminated lightning bug.
Solar lights provide a simple way to provide external night lighting, without running underground wiring. Once installed, they typically require little more than keeping the solar cell area clear of debris or snow.
Since they are self-contained, they can be easily relocated. All that is needed for them to function is unobstructed access to sunlight. Placing them in a location which gets a light for only a portion of the day, as trees or buildings cast a shadow over them for the balance of the day, may result in the solar lights not shining throughout the whole night.
Solar lights are designed for outdoor use, and good quality units can survive most weather conditions. The internal batteries should function for years without attention but can be replaced by equivalent rated rechargeable batteries.
Capturing the Light Energy
The basic components in solar lights are:
- Solar Cell (photovoltaic cell)
- Rechargeable battery (typically an AA NiCad)
- Photocell (usually a CDS sensor)
- Transistor switch control
- Light source (typically LED)
The solar cell is composed of a crystalline form of silicon which has had certain physical characteristics enhanced. The sun’s visible light energy forces electrons to jump from the silicon atoms, but the structure of the crystal forces electrons to travel a specific path to return.
This flow of electrons generates an electrical voltage across the silicon crystal. The voltage is characteristic of the element silicon and independent of the physical size of the solar cell. Since this voltage is quite small (less than a ½ volt), multiple cells are arranged to supply enough voltage to charge a NiCad (nickel-cadmium) battery. As long as the sun is shining, the battery will be charged from the solar cell.
A white LED is typically used to furnish the output light as this requires less power and produces a more intense light per input power than a small incandescent bulb. To prevent the LED from shining in the daytime (and discharging the battery), a light-sensitive switch (a transistor-photocell circuit) is used. When sunlight hits the photocell, it changes the voltage going to a transistor.
The transistor acts as an on-off switch between the battery and the LED. In daylight, the solar cell charges the battery and turns off the LED, at night the transistor circuit sends the battery voltage to the LED.
The housing provides form, function, and protection. Solar lights can withstand heat and cold, but moisture can cause corrosion and reduce the efficiency of the internal electronics.
The housing should be at least water resistant, and you may want to be sure that if you have lawn watering, it will not spray the internal circuitry of the solar lights.
Installation Of Solar Lights
The easy installation of solar lights makes them a great alternative to their more difficult to install counterparts, ‘wired’ lights, as you will not need to hire an electrician to complete the task for you.
In a few short minutes, even with no previous experience, you can easily install an array of solar garden lights in your yard to add beauty and night-time safety to your property.
Aside from saving energy on your electric bill, solar lights are also a ‘green’ alternative. In addition to pleasing your pocketbook, they will also soothe your conscience and lessen your carbon footprint.
Solar lighting is reasonably priced, and, requires little or no maintenance aside from an occasional dusting-off of the solar cells so that they better capture the sun’s energy.
Most solar lights contain sensors that turn them off at dawn and on at dusk, giving them approximately 10 hours of solar-charged battery power. You simply need to pick a location to place your solar light so that they get some direct sunlight throughout the day.
This will allow your outdoor solar lights to harness the power of the sun more easily and will make for a long-lasting, beautiful night-time presentation.
If your goal is to provide lighting primarily for safety, place your lights along a pathway, under windows, and to lead to entryways. If your solar lighting goal is directed towards accent lighting or to create a more dramatic effect, solar powered lights placed around shrubs and along fence-lines are a great way to highlight your favorite landscaping features.
Most solar lights come with a pointed stake on their base which you will simply push into the ground. Try to install your lights in soil that is free of stones and debris. This will make your solar light installation quick, easy and trouble-free.
If you are installing your solar lights in a rock bed or border garden, simply use a spoon or a small garden shovel to move the stones or fill material out of the way. Then, push the pointed stake into the ground, and replace the stones or fill material carefully around the base of the stake.
Solar Garden LightsThe only special consideration that you will need to make while installing your solar lights is to keep them away from the direct path of any sprinklers.
Although most solar lights are designed to withstand heavy rain and exposure to water, they are not normally ‘waterproof,’ so, it’s always a good idea to keep them out of the direct path of a constant stream of water.
Solar lights are an economical, quick project to that you can complete in a short period, and your return on investment will be great. They are also very versatile. Did you every think that you might be using a solar security light to assist you in your home security.
Or installing a solar shed light. Believe it or not, you can light up your shed and make a feature of it just by using a solar shed light. Great!
Solar lights also have seasonal potential. You can purchase a solar string light and decorate a tree in your garden to look light a Christmas tree, but without having to switch them on or off. Essentially these string lights would be better termed solar Christmas lights.
Once your solar lights are installed, you will enjoy a yard transformed! The easy installation of solar lights makes them a great way to beautify your yard, add safety and security to your home after dark, and increase your property value. So, go install those solar lights, then, sit back and enjoy the glow!
Uses Of Solar Light
Solar lights convert the sun’s energy to generate electricity and have gained a lot of popularity in the recent past due to its excellent applicability. These lights get charged during the day absorbing energy from the sun’s light, and at dusk, they turn automatically.
The lights remain on depending on the amount of energy absorbed during the day. Hence placing the equipment at the right position will maximize the throughput of its operation.
Solar lights use rechargeable batteries which get charged by solar power. These batteries can last up to one year and can be easily replaced at a very economical price.
DC electricity powers the lights, and the source of this electricity is the sun. They have built photo-voltaic sensors that automatically sense the photonic reception of the surroundings.
Hence during the night, these sensors aid in activating the rechargeable photo-voltaic cells thus producing light. The compact size of these photosensors makes them an accurate fit for almost all kinds of solar lights, and they are economically very feasible as well.
There are a variety of solar lights. Some of them are flood lights, path lights, accent lights, solar pool lights, solar post lights and solar spotlights. Solar post lights are used for pathway lighting.
Some of the models of the solar post lights come as a solar post cap light which gives an awesome shadowy effect to the surroundings where this post light has been installed. Solar yard light is another common and popular variety of solar light.
If you place these lights effectively, they’ll highlight the focal points in your garden, giving your home a custom landscaped look. You can even find solar spotlights to add dramatic lighting accents to your garden, or light up a flagpole or other outdoor feature quickly and easily.
Safety is an issue in the garden, as well, and these lights can be a safety feature in your garden. You can use them to light up walkways, stairs, and other areas of your garden that might be unsafe at night, and you can even find rope lights to edge your pathway or driveway for nighttime use.
Garden lighting adds to the value of your home, and it’s extremely popular right now. If you spend time and money adding to and maintain your landscape, it makes sense that you’re proud of it and wants to show it off.
Solar lighting helps you enjoy your landscape day and night, and it’s a small investment with a big reward. It not only adds value to your home, but it also adds to your enjoyment of your outdoor space, and it is so easy to install, there’s no reason not to invest in some of these different lights to enhance your landscape.
Don’t stop at the garden when you think about lighting your outdoor space. Use these lights to light up a patio or deck, mount them on fence posts for dramatic effect, and there are even solar lanterns and bird feeders that you can hang from trees throughout the garden. Think outside the box when it comes to lighting to get the very most from your outdoor space, no matter how big or small it is.
Today, more people are staying home and enjoying their gardens as a way to cut back but still enjoy life. Use solar lights to enhance your outdoor space, add value to your home, and highlight your landscaping, and you’ll have one more reason to stay home and enjoy the view!
