Your garden is not a big city roadside so therefore do not go overboard with too much of the solar landscape lights as it will disturb the tranquility and serenity of your landscaped garden in the evening. What you need is reasonably sufficient and soothing light for reasons of safety but you need not use very high power lights here in the evening and the night.

There are plenty of solar landscape lights that can be fixed to the ground to create a moonlit night type of feel for the lanes and walkways inside your landscaped garden. Smaller and less intensive solar landscape lights kept at a distance of a few feet gives a great ambience on the driveway.

Landscape lights that run on solar energy are a very good option as they are not bulky and are small in size and can be positioned and fixed at the ground level. These lights can be positioned to provide light in areas of choice and necessity, for more intense illumination to be beamed at any desired direction you choose, and the solar light fixture blends and merges easily with the surrounding plants in your garden. A few of the solar landscape lights carefully chosen with identical colors and soothing and pleasant lights helpÂ you to creatively display aÂ sense of taste and creative styling to the house and the landscaped garden. You can install the solar lighting fixtures on your trees and plants or on a musical water fountain or on a piece of art like on stone statues thus glorifying the landscape.
