Do you have outdoor sockets?
If that is not the case, then the solar lights are a lifesaver. But many people wonder if they are really effective. What do you think about the good old electric lights?
Besides, what happens when you live in a place where all or most of the time there is a shadow?
Here we will explore together the process of selecting, installing and using the solar lights.
How do the solar lights in the garden actually work?
Solar lights in the garden
Photovoltaic cells actually absorb sunlight during the day and so charge the batteries, which then provide the light and bulbs during the night. As it is understood, they must be placed in a place where they receive sunlight. Ideally, this should happen for one or two hours a day.
But what happens if you do not have direct sunlight at the selected location?
This is especially a problem for the regions, where it is dark all day long and without sunlight. It gets a bit more difficult here, but by no means impossible. In this case you should bring a remote photovoltaic panel in use. That could happen on the blanket or in a sunny spot in your yard.
Solar Lights in the Garden – If there just is not enough sunlight there, the solar panel will still work. The lights just do not get as bright every night as you might imagine.
Different types of sunlight
Solar path lighting
These are small lights on stand, which you can install laterally from some paths. They are not as bright as the electric ones, so you should use a larger amount.
Where should solar lamps be used?
Through the solar lights can illuminate paths that are located away from the sockets in the outdoor area. They can provide a magical glow next to garden paths.
Decorative lights in the ambience
There are a few great variants that are not as bright as the usual ones. It’s about decorative lights, such as lanterns and fairy lights. However, if you use them in large quantities next to them, they will provide a warm ambient light.
Where should you use ambient solar lights
Place some hand-blown solar lights on poles in your garden bed for soft solar lighting. You could also hang chain lights. You could also consider an original twist like this, where you used great jam jars as candlesticks. The latter will add a special charm to a dinner table outside.

Solar powered headlights
This is the most effective light version of solar lights available. It shows the same effect as the 40 watt bulbs. This is still not as bright as the typical outdoor lights. So, maybe you need to put a bigger amount back into action.
Motion sensors can be used near doors and in the driveways. They can be placed in the garden and the beam should then be placed next to other objects.
Note the shading
One has become accustomed by the today’s LED light bulbs predominantly at the white light. Do you rather prefer bulbs? Then opt for painted lights.
Demand the quality for which you paid
The brightness of the solar lights depends on the strength of the sun and the amount of sunlight. Furthermore, high-quality photovoltaic cells and the size of the LED bulbs are important.
So you can say that if you invest more money, you will also get more light
