The set of three tulip lights are solar powered, so there are no trenches to be dug for installing cables. You just stick them into the ground where the sun will hit the integrated solar panels during the day, and they’ll light the way at night.
The set comes with one red, one ivory, and one pink light. The flowers, stakes, and rechargeable batteries (which hold the solar charge) are included in the $40 price tag.

Installing Your Own Landscape Lighting Made Easy

If you have considered installing your own landscape lighting but think it is too difficult,Iam here to show you that it is not. Landscape lighting can be super simple to put in if you have a plan. A solid plan is a needed part of any landscape lighting installation. Low voltage landscape lighting comes in several different types and before you begin planning you should pick which one you want to go with.

The Two Types Of Landscape Lighting
The first kind of landscape lighting is cabled, electric landscape lighting. In order to install this you will need to have an available outlet outside you home. Each of the lights is connected along a chain of shielded electric cable. Planning for this setup you must consider both the lights and the cord they are connected to. Before you place any of the lights I highly suggest outlining your front or back yard, depending on where the lights are begin installed. Draw out and measure an equal distance between each of the lights then plot them out within your yard. You want to make sure that you have enough cable and room for the cable behind the lights.
Advantages of using the electric landscape lighting system are that you can turn it off and on when you want, it always has power, and you can get more powerful lights for the system. The wired systems are usually cheaper as well.
The other type of landscape lighting system is a solar system. A solar system takes the sun rays and charges up all day long then turns on when the sun goes down. These systems are very easy to install and do not require nearly the plan that the wired system has. In addition it is very easy to move the lights if you do not like where they are. There is no maintenance for this system and it is very easy to maintain. If any component breaks it can be easily replaced.
The advantages of the solar system are how easy it is to setup and how easy it is to adjust. It can also be fixed very quickly if there are any problems with the components within the system. The major disadvantage is that they generally are more expensive and are not nearly as bright as an electric system. In addition this type of landscape lighting requires about 8 hours per day of sunlight to be fully charged, so if you live in an area with little sunlight it can be tough to keep the system up and bright.
As you can see there are plusses and minuses to each system so consider your location before you decide.


Landscape Lighting Globes Have Modern Appeal

One of the latest trends in landscape lighting design is the globe light. They come in various sizes, can be used in a range of applications such as post lamp lights, landscape bedding lights, tree lights and even floating pool lights. The globes were introduced by a company out of Germany called Moonlight Inc. and have won many awards for their shatterproof polyethylene design and functionality.  The globes are available in four sizes: 10″, 14″, 22″ and 30″ diameter and are also available in half globes.  The globes are also available in many different colors and designs that can really add some creativity and life to your landscape. 
Floating, cordless globes are great for events like pool parties because they add such a creative,  modern element to the landscape but are easily removed and stored for later use.  Another application would be to attach globes in mature trees for adding extra overhead light to the garden.  Since the globes can be hard wired, plugged in or cordless and they come in a variety of colors and designs, the possible applications are endless. An obvious garden application would be in a Japanese garden or in the modern, minimallistic garden. Both styles use basic shapes and lines to define spaces and the globe light adds an both a design and functional aspect to both of these design styles.
