Many think that home improvement is all about fixing what is broken in the house. Well, it goes beyond that. Home improvement is making the home more efficient, more appealing and most importantly, getting your hands working when you have the time. One home improvement project I embarked on is getting my garden a little more accent. I did this using Solar garden Lights.
Advantages of solar garden Lights
The advantages of using solar garden lights are overwhelming. If you’re a garden fanatic like me, you’d jump on the idea in a heartbeat. First, solar garden lights provide lighting accents that will make your garden come alive at night. Second, they are solar powered so you don’t have to worry about the extra electrical cost. Third, they are easy to find. Lastly they are easy to install.
Don’t worry with replacement parts because you can always call the manufacturer. Moreover, it has few parts to worry about.
Where to find them
Solar garden lights can be bought online. But that will not give you the chance to visit your favorite gardening materials shop. If you don’t have a favorite gardening shop you can visit the nearest DIY store or Home Improvement store. Just go to the garden section and you’ll find a wide array of solar garden lights to your liking. It would be best to see the gadgets first hand so you can test them. Moreover, you can ask about care and maintenance.
How to use them
These solar garden Lights are fairly easy to install and maintain. When you take them out from the box you will notice the solar panel tip. This side should face the sky. The other end goes into the ground. The design varies from the shape of the unit to the brightness of the light. Since they usually use LED light, the low wattage will still give you a bright light. Some solar garden lights don’t have to be placed on the ground. Rather you can hang them like a lamp. For these models, you can simply place a them in key areas where you want them.
Do check whether they use rechargeable batteries or not. You may need to replace them after several battery cycles. Likewise some models have on and off switches you might as well check this as well. Lastly, you should know how to replace the LED in case it gets worn out.
Maintenance and care
Another fantastic feature of these garden accents is that they are low maintenance. Once you deploy them around your garden, you only need to enjoy them. But of course to make them last longer and make them more efficient, you need to clean the solar cells on the unit regularly. Monthly wiping with a clean cloth is good enough. You may want to check the batteries every 3 months just to make sure they are working properly and they are not leaking. Apart from these, you’re good to go.
These solar garden lights are terrific when you want to make your garden a little more whimsical. They can definitely turn a dull garden into a wonderful night spot for you and your family. Since they are easy to install, you can tweak their placement and find the best place for them to light up your garden.
