I, for one, have placed solar pathway lights around the edges of my raised flowerbeds to help prevent them from being a hazard to anyone walking through my yard. In the past, I have seen friends stumble and fall when they were not used to the placement of my artistic creations using the beauty of nature. By simply adding pathway lights, this hazard has been eliminated successfully.
With the wide variety of solar powered pathway lights that are available today, there is no end to what they can be used for. I know that I am looking forward to placing even more of them around my yard as I increase the numbers of raised garden beds throughout my yard. These raised beds are easier to tend to and they are just the right size for what I am planning to do. By placing pathway lights strategically, it will be easy to highlight the statuary or shrubs that are dear to me.
One thing that is really important to me is that we are able to see the step leading into our home clearly even in the darkest of nights. We have placed solar powered pathway lights that lead up to the steps, but we have also taken the initiative to shine some of them right ont the steps which makes them impossible to miss. This is an added benefit when using pathway lights since now there is less likelihood that we or anyone else is going to stumble and fall because they were unable to see when to step up or down.
Solar powered pathway lights are so simple to install that anyone can do it. No longer do you have to depend on calling in an electrician to run electric lines under the ground to install lights along the edge of the sidewalk, driveway or path leading to or around your home. All you have to do is push them into the ground in the area you want them to provide lighting. The great thing about this is that you can remove them when you want to make a change in your landscape and replace them wherever you desire.
Since solar pathway lights are not hooked up into the electrical system of the home, they do not add to your electric bill either. You won't even have to buy batteries and make sure to replace them frequently either. This means that once installed these little beauties are going to provide their own energy that is powered by the sun. The only cost associated with solar powered pathway lights is the initial investment, and these days that is minimal with all the innovative technology that goes into producing them. Hooray for solar power.
