Solar Lighting Design Tips
If you want solar lighting for accent purposes along a walkway or path, in a garden, around a border or a pool, choose solar lights that provide a compact, softer light and space them farther apart. Want more light? You can position the solar lights closer together so that they overlap – or choose a different solar light model. Enjoy these great examples of premium quality, durable and energy efficient Garden Solar Lights.
Generally speaking, solar lights for residential projects should be spaced 6 – 8 feet apart. In comparison solar lights for commercial applications (that require more light) should be placed 4 – 6 feet apart. Be mindful of your solar lighting placement. Too many solar lights can be overwhelming.
Do you want to light up a driveway or courtyard with solar lights for safety and security? How about added ambience or curb appeal? Check the product specifications for the footprint of the solar light. Browse our Driveway Parking Solar Lights for examples of mounting height and the pool of light produced.
Before you actually purchase outdoor solar lights, measure your space and mark the location for your solar lights. Use plant pots or garden stakes to identify potential locations. Step back, admire your work and make adjustments until you’re satisfied.
