Advantages Adds some colour and interest to the garden, really easy to use and set up
Disadvantages None for me
I have recently been spending some time and money trying to get my garden looking a bit better for the summer so that I won’t be embarrassed to invite people around for bbq’s or drinks on the decking.
It is starting to look a lot tidier and neater but it was still looking a touch bare so I went out and bought some garden ornaments for the walls and some solar lights for the trellis and pergola. I was a bit unsure about buying solar lights as I have had them before and wasn’t very impressed with them but this time they have made a big difference in not only making my garden look nicer but also with helping to give it some ambience.
As well as some plain fairy type lights I also bought these dragonfly lights as I thought that they were a little bit more unusual and they were the perfect length to fit the entire length of my pergola.
Instillation is simple and is simply a case of finding the sunniest place to put the solar panel box and then stringing up your lights where you want them. The lights are actually just little fairy lights and the dragonflies are actually little clear plastic dragonflies that you have to place over the fairy lights yourself. Having the dragonfly’s be separate actually has the added benefit of meaning that when the lights stop working which eventually all solar lights in my experience do I can just buy some really cheap replacement fairy lights and reattach the dragonfly’s to these one’s saving me from having to buy a whole set of the dragonfly ones again.Instead of just being plain coloured lights they are actually multi coloured and they also have a few different settings on them. I can choose to have the lights either static where they come on and just remain lit for the whole night or else I can have them twinkle on and off but I find this to be annoying. The setting that I have them on is where they light and then fade slowly before lighting again. I personally find this setting to be the nicest one to watch and because they are fading on and off slowly they really stand out.
I find that the solar panel box is really good and even though we live in the UK and are never guaranteed any sun the lights work every night without fail and the box charges up on even the cloudiest of days.
The box has an attached spike so that you can spike it into the ground wherever it will get maximum exposure to the sun.
