Solar Lighting for the Pool Deck and Yard

Fumbling around in the dark around pools and on decks is a recipe for disaster. The easy solution is the installation of no-fuss solar-powered lighting to improve safety and enjoyment of outdoor spaces. Solar lighting is effective, efficient, and easy on the budget.

Many people are under the misapprehension that solar lights only work if they receive full sunlight all day. Sunlight charges the batteries that enable them to work, but indirect sunlight, such as a cloudy day, or artificial light sources will also charge the batteries.

Solar-powered lighting has the added benefit of automatically turning on when a certain level of darkness has been achieved each night. Some are equipped with an on and off switch to preserve power when they’re not going to be used. However, their decorative nature makes them popular for accent lighting along decks and pools.

The range of solar-powered lighting is amazing and LED solar lights are far brighter than traditional types of illumination. There are units that come with a small stake that individuals simply push into the ground. Other options are designed to be located on stairs and railings that can simply be placed in certain locations or screws can be used to anchor them.

The push-in-the-ground type of lighting can also be used around the pool area, along with lanterns and other types of hanging solar lights. Floating solar lights are also available that can be placed directly on the pool water. Most people prefer to have a professional install solar lighting directly as part of the pool fixtures. Color-changing options are offered that can turn the pool area into a wonderland.

The range of solar lighting for pools and decks is vast, with a style to accommodate any preference. They provide an additional layer of safety and security on decks, pools, and stairs. Solar lights are eco-friendly and help individuals save money on outdoor lighting costs.

Backyard Nightlife: Why LED Lights are Awesome

Lighting for the backyard is one of the most often overlooked features for safety and entertaining – and it can be one of the most frustrating. The lighting provides a warm and inviting atmosphere for sharing good times with family and friends, but can also attract unwanted insect pests. LED lighting technology provides a myriad of illumination advantages over traditional bulbs and an LED alternative exists for every type of existing fixture.

Saving Money

One of the biggest attractions of LED lights is that they’re much cheaper to operate than traditional bulbs. They’re 80 percent more efficient and don’t use as much electricity.


LED lights are available in multiple colors, allowing homeowners to customize their backyard decorating and take control of their illumination solutions in any situation. They encompass the full light spectrum, enabling individuals to create distinctive looks for any themed event.

Longer Life

The average life span of LED lights is approximately seven years and the longevity can even extend up to 10 years or more, depending upon differences in usage. As a result, they require very minimal levels of maintenance. LED technology doesn’t use filaments and they’re not glass-based, making them more resistant to bumps, shocks, vibrations, and fluctuations in temperatures.


LEDs produce more light with fewer fixtures than traditional bulbs and provide greater visibility for family members and guests. They can significantly reduce the potential for trip and fall accidents. They emit a fraction of the heat of ordinary light bulbs and remain cool to the touch, meaning they can be used in areas where children and pets frequent.


Aside from using less power to operate, LEDs minimize light pollution. They cast illumination specifically where they’re directed without “bleeding” out into adjoining areas. LED lights can be recycled and don’t contain toxic components such as mercury.

Fewer Insects

One of the great things about LED lights is that they don’t emit the type of UV light that insects find attractive so there will be fewer bugs fluttering around – and everyone wants that!
