    Solar garden lights

    The very latest thing in garden lighting is the use of solar power, harnessing the sun's energy and releasing it as a gentle, warm glow after dark to light pathways, water features, special plants and more.

    Solar lighting isn't just environmentally friendly: it's easy to use, too. There's no wiring, and you don't need timers as they switch on automatically when the sun goes down.

    You'll find a good range of solar lighting at Rushfields, from spotlights to colour-changing LEDs, path lights and lanterns. Here's how to get the most from your display.

    • Place the solar panel in a sunny spot so it can charge fully during the daytime. It'll operate in
      overcast conditions, but you may find in winter there's rarely enough sunlight for a full charge.

    • Keep your solar panel clean by wiping it gently with a damp cloth. If you let your solar panel get dirty,
      it won't be able to charge fully.

    • A full charge lasts for around six hours, and a single rechargeable battery lasts for around 600
      charges – that's about two years – before it needs replacing.

    Please ask one of the team at Rushfields for more information and advice about using solar garden lighting.
