Four Ways to Use Solar Lighting

Have you noticed over the last few years a shift in how the general population thinks about energy use and consumption, especially when it comes to solar power, solar energy, and solar lighting?

As the ominous topic of climate change enters the narrative of our global mindset, more and more people are becoming aware of how small collective changes can make a positive impact on our environment and that green energy applications might not be such a bad thing overall.

Solar lighting has long been a focus for homes and businesses that want to get "off the grid" and be more self-sufficient with their energy use. But even for individuals who are still forced to rely on conventional energy, there is a way to embrace solar power and make a difference in the most intimate of spaces in our lives - our Gardens! 

Solar lighting is a vast and creative field and here at Exhart, we are committed to providing homeowners with a range of solar-powered decor lighting options for your gardens. Highlighted in this article are four easy and powerful ways to embrace solar lighting and use it to your advantage when decorating your outdoor living spaces.

These great products allow lighting where power may not necessarily be available. Made to be weather resistant and durable, hanging lanterns offer color, light, and ambiance. Many colors and styles can be selected to create the look and feel that is perfect for any outdoor area.

3. Decorative Lighting For Landscapes and Gardens

There are decorative elements that can come into play within the garden itself that is not related to plants - or landscaping - at all. Utilization of these elements in the industry is referred to as "hardscaping," and solar lighting options as well as more traditional elements such as statues, birth baths, and trellises are a foundation to a proper hardscape environment.  Using solar-powered lights can help illuminate certain areas of the garden or provide a unique focal point for the landscape.  A decorative light on a pedestal or along a flower bed edge can really make an area pop.
