Have you introduced solar-powered decorations to your garden yet? If not, you're missing out! Solar-powered garden decorations are the perfect fit for any home, and there are a variety of advantages to using solar decorations in your yard or garden, too.

Solar décor doesn't require any power cords or batteries, and you don't even have to worry about turning the lights on and off. The sun does all of the work! Solar garden decorations run off the energy they receive from the sun, and they turn that energy into light at night.

If you are not familiar with solar power, it generates environmentally-friendly energy from the sun for your home. If you already have solar energy in your home, solar garden decor is a great way to take your commitment to the Earth's natural power source one step futher. Simply put your decorations outside and enjoy them without ever having to worry about running electricity or going outside to turn on the lights.

Solar decorations are practical because they provide light to your yard or garden to illuminate walkways, providing a safer environment for your family and for your guests. Coming home to a lit up home is perfect after a long day. Solar decorations are easy to set up as well. Just place them where you want them and you're all done!

The best part about solar decorations is that they come in so many different shapes, colors and sizes, so there's something for every taste. Here are just a few examples of the types of solar décor you can add to your garden.

 

Solar Lights

The most basic type of solar decoration is solar lights. These can be used to light up the path to your front door or your driveway. You can also place them around your garden to light up your plants, bushes and trees at night. They are so pretty to look at, you'll find yourself staring out your window when it gets dark!

You can find solar lights that stake into the ground, lights that hang and lights that can be strung. Solar memorial lights are the perfect touch for the headstone of a loved one. Strands of solar lights are an easy and fun option for outdoor events like bonfires and barbecues. However you decide to use them, solar lights will add a special touch to your space.

Solar Panels

If you want the benefit of solar power without as much of the decoration aspect, you can purchase solar panels to harvest the energy of the sun for your home. This can either replace electricity or at least lower your electricity bill.

Powering homes using solar energy is becoming more and more popular, so you can get ahead of the trend by adding solar panels to your home! There are a lot of options for adding solar power as a homeowner such as solar pool heating, patio and landscape lighting and hot water. Each of these options can end up saving you money and giving you a smaller carbon footprint.

 

Solar Bird Feeders

Do you love looking out your window and seeing birds flying around your yard? Using solar-powered bird feeders or bird houses welcomes birds in the daytime and at night. These are perfect for nature-loving families, and they are a charming addition to any yard. If you have young children, they will love watching the birds explore your yard and the birdhouse.

Solar Figurines

Whether you like butterflies, gnomes, wildlife, baskets, flowers or fairies, there is a solar figurine out there for everybody. These types of decorations add a personal touch to your home and let you make your yard your own. They also make a great gift for a housewarming party or a birthday since it's easy to find designs to accommodate a wide variety of tastes.

 

Solar Water Fountains

Solar water fountains are a wonderful touch to any backyard, and just like with other types of solar décor, you'll find many options to suit your style. These fountains will also attract birds and other wildlife, and they add delicate movement as well as a soothing sound to your garden. Adding a solar water fountain to your landscape will be getting you compliments from all of your guests and neighbors!

Solar garden décor is quickly gaining popularity, and with the environmentally-friendly beauty it adds to your space, it's no wonder. Add solar décor to your home to make your garden personalized and magical!
