Solar Garden Globes
Gardens of all types have a natural beauty about them; even though they are human made they are a great display of the intricate beauty of nature. Whether it is a vegetable garden or a nicely landscaped flower garden, it can be almost like a piece of art work offering a wonderful way to blend your creativity with the dynamic canvas of nature.
These days we have a number of fun things we can integrate in our yards and landscaped areas to enhance the appearance or to increase functionality. One of those things is outdoor lighting. Good use of outdoor lighting can do both of these things, although only at night.
There are a number of styles of outdoor lights available making it easier to integrate them into virtually any style of garden. Some of them are utilitarian and others are very decorative. What you choose will depend on what you want most from this type of lighting, however most cases appearance plays a big role with this decision.
Garden Globe Lights
One of the most distinct and lovely types of landscape lighting I’ve seen in recent years is the solar garden globe light. Solar garden globes are beautiful glass globes, usually made of hand-blown colored glass. The colors and designs vary from one globe to another, you can find them in swirling, frosted or speckled colors.
The great part about these outdoor globe lights is that they can enhance the look of the area where they are used both during the night and during the day. During the day they are noticeable for their own distinct design, but during the night they illuminate creating yet another distinct look.
Because they are solar powered they are easy to use and there isn’t really any maintenance involved. As long as they have access to some sunlight during the day they will automatically turn on when it gets dark outside, then turn off when the sun rises.
While they don’t offer a great deal of light, not enough for safety or real increased visibility at night, they do offer a bit of additional light to your yard at night. Many of them even change colors.
If you are looking for a nice piece of art to accent your garden consider solar garden globes. Unlike many other accent pieces these offer a distinct look both during the day and at night.
