Solar fairy lights for your garden can help you to light the garden at night without the worry of running wiring in the garden or increasing your power bill. One of the nicest features of a garden is the ability to enjoy walking along the path so you can see all of the hard work that has gone into making the landscaping beautiful. You can add the lights into your general design to make the garden something very special.
The solar fairy lights will need special installation, but it is also not difficult to do yourself. The solar portion of the light is often attached to the light itself and will not take up additional room. When you are choosing solar fairy lights, you should consider how long you want the light to work and how large you would like the lights to be. Additionally, you should plan for which sections of the garden you would like the lights to be in. You will want all of your fairy lights to match, which means you should order them all together. If you plan to expand your garden, you may want to buy extra lights for the future.
Planning your garden each year can include working around your fairy lights. You can use them to light the path to your home, and they can work in the winter as well as the summer. The lights may only last for up to eight hours after the sun sets, but people are seldom up very early in the morning. Most garden parties and other times you will need the lights will be in the early evening before the solar power burns out.
It is important to install the lights a uniform distance from each other so that your garden or walkway looks well cared for. Additionally, you may choose to plant certain flowers around the fairy lights, both to hide them during the day and to emphasize the flowers you have planted. The solar fairy lights are powered by collecting sunshine during the day and converting that power to use at night, so you need to be sure that you do not cover the tops of the lights completely or put them in very shady areas.
If you are just beginning to plant and landscape your garden, be sure to include solar fairy lights as part of the planning process. This will make incorporating them into your garden even easier. The lights are not difficult to add to an already existing garden either, but planning around them can allow you to really showcase your garden.
