Natural Accent Solar Outdoor Lighting

Sometimes you're not looking to flood an area with light. You simply want to add an accent, a touch of illumination to your garden or pathway. In doing this, you may also be considering how the lamp looks during the day. Many solar accent lights are design with both day and night in mind. During the day, they appear as lawn or garden ornaments. At night, they continue their function as ornaments, but they also provide a bit of a glow to their surroundings.

Animals are a popular theme for accent lighting. You can find a variety of different designs of frogs, turtles, and squirrels. Pick a small frog made out of hand-painted resin to sit at the edge of a pond, deck, or birdbath. Gather several frogs together to create a family of them. By day, they'll appear to be relaxing in the sunlight. By night, they'll light up to give a whimsical look to deck or garden.

Try some turtles in addition to or instead of the frogs. A solar powered turtle can provide a soft green or amber glow, depending on the coloring of the shell.

Solar powered squirrel-shaped lights can provide additional accents with a little more fuzzy warmth. By day, they crouch in your garden holding an acorn. By night, they light up in a way that's clearly artificial but that shows off their cuteness for all to see.

A garden that's blessed with frogs and turtles and squirrels may also benefit from a miniature garden caretaker to keep watch over them all. A small solar garden gnome can provide just the touch you're looking for. He stands in the middle of the garden, holding a lamp so that your other solar fauna can see and feel protected.

Another way to go may be the nautical theme. It's easy to find little solar powered lighthouses as well. They can cast a cheery light over a small section of garden. They can stand at the edge of a pond, their reflection shimmering in the water. They can light the way for travelers along a pathway or up a set of stairs.

For a more restrained and understated look, a simple wooden pagoda light may add the accent and the ambiance that you seek.

Or if all that seems a bit much, you can find a variety of simple path markers and other stake-mounted lamps to gather solar energy during the day and provide an understated accent by night.
