Exterior Lighting Solutions with Solar Lights

Exterior lighting can often present many challenges, and among the most difficult is the need to run electricity to the various fixtures and locations. This requires an expensive visit from a professionally licensed electrician who may have to dig trenches and create permanent locations for some desirable lighting units.

This too is one of the main reasons that some homeowners opt to just forgo any exterior lighting designs. Of course the monthly electrical bills that often accompany exterior lighting, not to mention the maintenance and bulb replacement, only add to the dilemma.

So, what is a homeowner to do? Well, many turn to solar lights for options that can be set in place and up and running in as little as a few hours.

Of course many people say they want much brighter lighting than what traditional solar bulbs provide, and the answer to that comment is “have you looked at solar lighting lately?” It is hardly confined to the dim and low-key “accents” of earlier years. Today, a homeowner can install an amazing number of solar lighting units, and one of the most astonishing options is solar lamp posts.

Many homeowners want solar lamp posts for their entryway or sidewalk as they are impressive, classic and add a beautiful ambient light to an entire area. Unfortunately they are also usually extremely expensive and quite difficult to install. Today, however, there are solar lamp posts that can provide a variety of lighting solutions. With units outfitted with one, two or three brilliant LED bulbs, solar lamp posts can gently or boldly light any exterior environment.

Some might think that solar light fixtures cannot be large, heavy-duty items that broadcast their light approximately thirty feet in any direction and stand over seven feet tall, but that is exactly what the solar lamp posts offer. They are crafted from sturdy and durable materials, comparable to a traditional flag pole, but are designed to create the kind of statement that only a beautiful and ornate lamp post offers. Solar path lights demand no wiring and little to no maintenance. They can provide exterior lighting for up to thirty hours on a single charge and can be left in place permanently, or year round.

If you have been wanting to create an impressive and decorative exterior lighting plan for your home or garden, now is the time. There are a remarkable number of styles and fixtures to choose from and your plans are only limited by your imagination, and of course your yard space!
