How to Light Your Yard Up in Fall and Winter
Solar lights withstand harsh weather conditions by emitting bright white light outdoors.
Fall is here, and you’ll likely experience a dip in the temperatures felt throughout your city. The warm summer air now has a chill to it. You’re starting to spend less time outdoors without a light jacket or sweater but still enjoy spending time on your deck, porch or pergola looking at the stars. As you gather around the fire pit this fall, illuminate your pathway with solar lights. They’ll cast a bright glow over your sidewalk and prevent people from trampling what’s left of your flower garden in the dark.
If you haven’t thought much about outdoor lighting, now is the time to do so. You still have a few weeks before the cold of winter drives you indoors. It’s the perfect time to stake the solar lights into the ground so you can continue to use them when snow has fallen.
Let’s start by learning what makes solar lights ideal in states that experience four seasons.
What Makes Solar Lights Ideal for the Four Seasons States?
Solar lights are durable and easy-to-place into the ground. That’s a few of the reasons why they remain popular in states with four seasons. The lights are also able to withstand harsh weather conditions such as rain, sleet, ice, and snow. When you buy solar lights, you’re investing in long-term benefits.
One of the most notable things about this type of outdoor lighting is how they’re ready to use right away. There are no wires to install, and each set of lights comes with extra stakes and batteries to keep them working throughout fall and winter. That means greater illumination outdoors even when the weather is dreary. You’ll still be able to take your dogs outside and let the kids play in the snow without fear of them accidentally tripping and falling in the dark.
How are Solar Lights Used?
Solar lights are used mainly to illuminate pathways. They can create barriers for flower beds or even to light up the base of a flag pole, birdbath or mailbox. You can arrange them in shapes or patterns, too, depending on your needs and personal style aesthetic. You can be as creative as you want to be using the staked lights because they do a great job of keeping your yard lit throughout the night.
If you want to make your driveway more visible in the dark, investing in outdoor lighting is imperative. Solar lights store energy from the sun in their solar panels. That means that they don’t rely solely on battery power except on days where it’s overcast. You won’t increase your home energy bill, either, the way you would with Christmas lights that run off electricity.
