Solar lighting is a beautiful addition to your home. Not only does it look great on a summer’s evening, but it adds extra security and has an excellent safety record. Solar lighting does not cost anything to run, and maintenance is low too. On top of all this, a good display can add curb appeal.
What’s not to love about solar lighting?
At Fence Supply Online we stock a range to suit most tastes and garden designs. We get a lot of questions from customers about getting the most out of their solar lighting. There are many ways of doing so, and light placement is the best place to start.
Over coffee recently, we got to talk about where to place solar lighting on the property. After a lot of spit-balling and some great suggestions, we put together a long list of ideas. To make sense of the list, we drew up a post for our customers.
Our tips on light placement and getting the most out of solar lighting include:
- Let the deck shine at night
- Place lighting on the boundary fence for security
- Decorative solar lighting will catch the eye
- Rail and step lights for safety
Let’s take a closer look at each point on the list.
Let the deck shine at night
Placing solar lighting on your deck is very easy to do.
Some people put them on every post and really light up the area. Others place a solar light on corner posts or every second post. You should go with whatever arrangement suits your tastes and needs.
It is simple to install too. There is not any need to run unsightly and possibly dangerous cables across the deck. You install a post adapter and click the light into place.
The sun will do the rest of the work.
Place lighting on the boundary fence for security
There is nothing more off-putting for the bad guys than seeing a well-lit-up fence.
On the other hand, if they can slip in over a fence in the dark, then they are very happy.
You can install a range of solar lighting along the length of the fence. There is not any need for running wiring and looking for outside power sources.
You can do the work on a weekend and enjoy the extra security all year round.
