When we first moved into my house we had landscape lighting that was electric. I disliked it because it added to our electric bill, the wires would come unburied, and the bulbs would burn out. We have now installed new solar yard lighting and we really enjoy it. Here are a few benefits of outdoor solar landscape lighting.

New Solar Landscape Lighting Features
Solar landscape lights are improving all the time. I have recently replaced my old solar stake lights with new ones from LITOM and I quite pleased. The LED bulbs are so much brighter than my previous solar lights. That alone makes them worth it. I also love the way I can adjust where the light points so I can point it down towards my stairs or up towards my stairs as the need may be along my pathway.
Additionally, these solar landscape spotlights allow me to adjust the direction of the solar panels independently of the spotlight. This means I can aim the light down and the panel up for the most sun. Being able to get the best sun exposure means a stronger, longer light and I am really happy with how much solar lighting has improved over the last few years. My LITOM solar spotlights even allow me to choose between warm and cold light options!
I am totally pleased with my outdoor solar landscape lighting. Have you tried outdoor solar landscape lighting? What are your favorite benefits?
