There are many solar light products on the market today. Some require expert installation and careful consideration, however most are simply “pushed into the ground”. While inexpensive, these products are often poorly designed, offer little visual appeal. Their poor design has the potential to create a bad image for outdoor solar lights.
That said, a good Solar LED light can actually hold charge that is enough for over ten hours of use. This is more than sufficient for most people. In addition, considering they are really bright, you probably do not need more than one or two sets to light up the entire front yard or even the walls of your house.
We hang battery operated paper lanterns on the arbor near the entrance to our swimming pool. It helps to light up the walkway as people come and go. Also hang them from the ribs on your outdoor umbrella or on the branches of nearby trees.
We’ve all been tempted to buy one of those garden variety solar lights that are purchased for a few dollars and stuck into the ground. To be honest I bought my fair share as well. Soon however, my backyard looked like a light circus and after the first year or two most of the lights were broken. Some broke in half but most simply failed to light up. Upon some reflection I recognized that what made them so easy to install also hampered their ability to look nice.
Or perhaps signs just aren’t sexy enough for the pros. They would rather focus on the high-profile TV and radio ads, costly direct mail campaigns, or the high-tech Internet options. But none of these are as inexpensive or as effective as a sign.
Another use for outdoor LEDs would be for security purposes. LED Lights function very well as floodlights that can be attached to a house and turned on by a motion sensor. These can be powered by solar panels, batteries, or plugged into a power source. Since LED Lights use so little power, even solar powered lights would provide a bright beam for a short amount of time.
The last choice made in picking between deck railing designs involves the posts and post caps. The posts come in a large selection of styles. Each can be pressure treated to make them just as durable as the rails are. This gives them the same water, chip, and scratch-proof surface. The post caps can add another unique touch of the flair. There are over a dozen different styles to choose from. They can be jeweled toned, portray pictures, or contain solar-powered lights so that guests can see at night while on the structure.
