Illuminating an Evening Garden
Even on cloudy or moonless nights, you can enjoy after-six gardens by using path lights, lanterns, or strings of twinkle lights to help illuminate the pale plant colors. Keep the light soft and diffused to mimic the moon's subtle glow.
Solar-powered lights are an ideal way to avoid a costly installation and steep electric bills. Most contain solar panels that collect sunlight during the day and convert it to electricity. At dusk, their bright white LED lights begin to cast a warm glow, which can last from 8 to 10 hours.
