Fences Come in All Shapes and Sizes as do Fence Lights
Tall privacy fences are increasing popularity with the plastic (PVC) option. The lifetime of a PVC fence is far longer than the traditional wooden fence, and they look neater and cleaner. Wooden fences on the other hand have a rugged country appeal. Both are good, so it really depends on the look you are trying to achieve. A privacy fence can create a nice backdrop for landscaping. Split rail fences in wood or PVC, are still a favorite among landscapers since they do not hide the landscaping but will actually enhance it. Stone fences add elegance to a yard with the rich earth colors and massive structure. Whatever your fence option, it is good to know that there are numerous inexpensive lighting options. Lighting a fence provides several benefits that make the investment worthwhile.
Solar post lamps are economical because you do not have to install electrical wiring. The lamps run on rechargeable batteries, which charge daily from the sun. You save money again, and again by not having to pay electrical bills. Best of all, the rechargeable batteries pay for themselves and the led lights last for 100,000 hours. That means less waste, and less hazardous waste, for the landfills.
Solar Post Cap Completes a PVC Fence
The ever popular PVC privacy fence or split rail fence comes with a standard post cap. This finishes off the raw edge at the top of the post. If you want the post to be functional by providing light in your yard or along the walkway, then consider replacing the standard fence post caps with solar fence post caps. Adding lights to a fence along a sidewalk will provide safety and security to your home entrance. Also adding solar fence post lighting to a privacy fence will brighten your yard, which may otherwise, be dark by the solid fence. Enhance the atmosphere of a deck or patio with solar post cap lights. Solar post caps usually are available in white and black, and sometimes in other colors such as brown. They even work on wood fence posts, which can add an interesting look to the dicor.
Solar Lamp Post Lights add Elegance
Traditional pole lamps are out and solar pole lamps are in. They still provide the same usefulness and elegance along a driveway or front walkway. However, they also offer the benefit of being energy efficient. Take that one, step further by bringing the elegance into your private back yard. Add matching lamppost lights to the top of your fence posts. The extra brightness of the open design cannot be beat. You will benefit by being able to see the landscaping around your fenced yard all night long. Investing in good quality solar lamppost lighting will assure the lights stay lit all night long even on those occasional overcast days. Achieve a real touch of elegance by building a pair of brick or stone posts at your driveway entrance. Place a solar lamppost light atop each one.
Solar Railing Lights are Versatile
I found a neat little light that has several benefits that others do not have. It is about 1 inch across and about 15 inches long. The versatility of it makes it worth the purchase. Because it is so small around, it can be easily set in the ground along a pathway using the optional stakes. Remove the stakes and use the optional mounting clamps to attach the light to a fence railing. These solar railing lights are especially nice around a deck or a fence along a pathway. Use them as solar step lights leading to your deck or porch for safety when walking at night. You do not have to worry about hitting it with a mower since it is only about 1 inch wide. Best of all they only require 2 hours of sunlight for a full charge so you can put them most anywhere and enjoy the light all night long.
Solar Post Lights Come in Many Shapes
When you think of solar post lights, you typically think of them as mounted on the top of a post. Consider mounting solar post lights on the side of a post. One example is again a split rail fence along a pathway. This light will light a path or stairs with a bright light for safety when walking at night. There are numerous ways to use the light around your home by mounting it on any vertical surface. Install it high on the wall or fence to enable the light beam to reach out further over a larger area. Consider mounting it on a deck that is high off the ground with the light beam pointing down on to the yard or patio below. Consider mounting it above a doorway to light the entrance. It will work on any vertical surface, even the side of your camper.
