nighttime hours. These lights come in a variety of different shapes and sizes, such as the solar umbrella string
patio lights that hang down from the umbrella on the deck of the home to give mood lighting at night.
Garden String Lights -The Choices
There are many different options in the outdoor solar garden string lights. Some come with a solar panel that
can sit on top of an umbrella or other item so that it can absorb the sunlight to give the power to the garden
string lights. There are others that have smaller solar panels built into the garden string lights so that it is
barely noticeable where the garden string lights are obtaining their power from.
These outdoor solar garden string lights are environmentally friendly and are also easier to
use than the traditional versions. The reason for this is that the solar powered outdoor garden string lights can
be placed anywhere in the yard, whereas the traditional ones have to be near a power source.

runs from twenty dollars to about eighty dollars, depending on the type of lights that are bought. There are some
that are hand made, being made of blown glass in a variety of different shapes and colors. There are others that
are made from sea glass or that have a metal wrapping around each bulb to give it a distinctive appeal in the
daylight as well as having the nice glow at night. The outdoor solar garden string lights also are usually powered
by LED bulbs, which last for long periods of time and give off a lot of light. Many of the higher priced versions
of the outdoor solar garden string lights will have a day/night sensor on them so that they automatically
turn on and off.
