Types of solar landscape lights

Solar lighting is the safest and easiest kind of outdoor lighting to install. Each light has a small photocell device built-in to the the fixture that converts sunlight into electrical energy. This energy is stored in highly efficient rechargeable batteries, used to light the fixture at night. This component knows when the light level is low and switches the light on. Make sure there are no other strong light sources near by that can affect the photocell because if it is not dark enough the fixture may not automatically switch on.
Different types of solar landscape lights
  • Accent Lighting - Intense light is focused on a specific object to contrast it against a dark background. You can use spotlights or mini spreadlights for accent lighting.

  • Tier lights - Direct light downward on the ground or shrubs and minimize glare, making them ideal for lighting walks and steps.

  • Floodlights - Direct bright light upwards, they are a good choice for eliminating dark areas around windows and doors.

  • Spotlights - direct light upwards at controllable angles to illuminate statuary and highlight landscaping fences and architectural surfaces.

  • Low fixtures - Contains the light close to the ground, perfect for landscape borders and driveways.

  • Taller fixtures - Spreads the light over larger areas and can be used in gardens, patios or walkways
