Gardeners will find a host of solar powered accessories for the yard and garden. Homeowners can use solar power for a host of tasks. These tasks include solar lighting, pumping water and telling time. A solar umbrella can provide solar power to charge electronics while you are outside enjoying the sun.

Gardeners can use solar energy to provide nighttime yard lights and power a fountain. The solar cells can also zap bugs and charge electronics.

The energy produced by solar cells can also run pumps to provide irrigation to garden and field crops. This solar powered irrigation can provide water the plants during sunny, hot periods when the plants may need extra water. Solar powered fountains can provide the trickling sound of water to just about any area of the garden that gets some sun. There is a solar yard light for just about any location in the garden, including shady areas that get little or no sun.

The Solar Garden Book provides all the information a gardener needs to employ solar energy in the garden. The sun can provide electricity to power everything from solar lights to fountains and watering the plants.

The Home Guide Basics Series of books will explain the basic operation, options and systems of many appliances used in the home. The series will include books on rechargeable batteries, tankless water heaters, robotic vacuum cleaners, laminate floors, radiant heat, solar power, alternate energy sources, water filtration, solar garden equipment and more.
