Quick Tip for Friday – solar yard lights

Posting my Friday tip on Saturday, it’s been busy lately, can you tell?

If you have solar lights in your yard, along walkways etc. this is a great time of year to give them a little attention. Start watching for the sun shifting and the days beginning to shorten, making a few adjustments in placement can help you get the most from your lights as fall and winter come along.

Rotate the locations of lights that may have already been getting shorter amounts of direct light or are in the areas where they come on the soonest as it gets dark.

If you have lights with on/off switch turn them off for a couple of days now and then so they can store up the charge. This can be especially helpful in the short days of winter.

Clean the tops of your lights to keep them functioning at their best. All it takes is a damp paper towel or rag and a few minutes to rub the area where the little solar panels collect the energy. This one simple bit of maintenance will dramatically increase the life of your decorative solar yard lights.
