A Solar Powered Water Feature is a fantastic decoration choice for your garden that has so many benefits, and while we’ve still got summer to look forward to, now is a perfect time to install one if you’re considering it!
Here at UK Water Features we stock a wide variety of features to choose from, we certainly have something to suit all gardens and budgets! Nothing adds tranquillity to a garden quite like a water feature and a solar powered item is a great way to conserve both financial and ecological resources. A water feature is the perfect addition to your garden if you’re looking to add something special to enjoy all year round.
Just imagine putting your feet up in the sunshine, admiring your garden, and listening to the gentle trickle of the water in the background – there’s nothing quite like it!
In this blog we want to share with you some useful tips if you’re thinking about installing a solar feature in your garden this summer, and to showcase a few of our fantastic solar products that will hopefully get some ideas flowing.
One important factor to consider when installing your solar powered feature is that your solar panel needs to be placed in an area of direct sunlight. Other than that, simply place the solar water feature on level ground in the garden, fill with water, and enjoy! It really is as simple as that!
Once the panel has absorbed enough sunlight, the power is then fed back to the solar water feature. Due to improvements in design, modern solar water features are designed to operate in climates that are usually off-limits to solar power. Solar panels can now collect power even on cloudier days, meaning the owner can save on overall costs of powering the water feature.
By allowing the pump to run continuously at no cost, solar water features prevent stagnation which helps to reduce algae build-up and decreased expenditure on algae cleaning products!
Whatever style of feature suits your garden best, our UK Water Features website can cater to all tastes. Whether you have a traditional styled garden or something more contemporary, we have the perfect feature for you that you can have set up in no time!
Why not try something natural looking like our Solar Powered Rock Fall Water Feature. This could settle right into your plants and shrubs as a lovely subtle decoration, or would equally look as great stood alone as a focal point. Made from durable resin this feature is built to stand the test of time, and with its great stone effect finish, it will look like it’s been part of your garden for years.
Add some charm and colour to your garden with a feature just like our Magical Fairy on Rock Feature. The beautiful detailing on this will make it a real talking point this summer, it’s got fantastic character, and with it being solar powered you can enjoy the fact it has no running costs too!
To add a Mediterranean feel to your outdoor space this summer, why not take a look at something like this? Our Mediterranean Pouring Bowls would fit in perfectly to this style of garden. Enjoy the relaxing effects from the water trickling from the top of the feature down to the bottom bowl, as well as the lovely, rustic colour that will fit right into any garden décor scheme. This water feature also includes built in LED lights, making it a feature to be enjoyed as much in the night time as well as the day.
Is your style a little more contemporary?
Why not try a feature like our Lagos Fall Stainless Steel Water Feature? This stunning feature is hand finished and manufactured from quality, Grade 304 stainless steel, so it can be enjoyed in your outdoor space for years to come! This fountain provides a minimal and sleek look with clean lines and offers a sleek, designer look to any space. This is a fantastic feature that would fit right into a modern styled garden on a decking, patio or garden!
Are you looking for a traditional tiered fountain design? If so, why not try either our Kingsbury Two Tier Fountain or our Finial on Pillar Water Feature.
