If you need something bigger like a yard light or a pathway that you need lit up, you can get post lamps that are solar powered or maybe a solar powered spot light to brighten up the back corners of your yard where there is no convenient electricity available. Some of these lights can be obtained with the solar collector on a remote extension so that it can get plenty of sunshine during the daylight hours.

For your backyard deck you can get solar deck lights consisting of recessed lights or post caps. Imagine just mounting the post caps to the top of your deck post and your ready to go, no more drilling out the posts to run wiring and trying to keep all of that wiring hidden. For recessed lights just mount them flush with the deck and they can be walked on, no more going up and down the steps in the dark, a real safety feature.

But wait what if you don’t have a garden you have a pond or maybe a swimming pool instead, well all of these solar lights can be used around a pool or pond also. From a high mounted spot light to light up the water, or solar pathway lighting around the pool. No digging up the ground to run the wiring, and they are much safer because of this. They also make small waterproof solar powered lights which float in the water to really make your pool or pond stand out. You wouldn’t want to do this with a wired light.

Or maybe you need a solar security light with a motion sensor, to light the front of your garage.
