There are a multitude of different sizes and shapes of solar powered lighting available for landscape lighting, and these have photovoltaic panels that convert solar energy to electricity, which then powers the lights, either along paths and steps, or on specific areas.
Whichever method of providing outdoor lighting for your garden will depend on your budget, and sometimes you can double up the effects – for example lighting strings of lights can be used coloured for Christmas, then plain for the rest of the year.
