Enjoy a free-flowing fountain in a bird bath, soft ambient lighting along a walkway, or the enchanting glow of a garden statue Â? all without running a single electrical cord. Solar products reduce energy bills, are safe for the environment and installation is simple.

CONCORD, NH (PR WEB) July 1, 2005 –The Duncraft Catalog for wild bird and nature enthusiasts has introduced a complete line of solar powered accents for yard, pond and garden available online at

Sharon Dunn, President of Duncraft, says,”Duncraft wants to offer a real alternative to expensive -- and often complicated – electrical landscape accents. Our customers are very pleased with our solar-powered accents for bird baths, pathways, and pond. For instance, our Solar Bird Bath features a built-in water fountain, whose moving water attracts birds. Bird lovers are very enthusiastic about this great product.”

Dunn also describes how solar products enhance the backyard landscape. “We all enjoy spending time outdoors on warm evenings. A soft glow here and there sets a tranquil, almost magical mood. We carry natural-looking stepping stones and rocks that look decorative in the daytime garden. At dusk these 'stones' automatically illuminate a path or highlight a garden.” Outdoor ambient lighting — around pool or pond, in the garden, along driveway, walkway or deck is very attractive. Because it can be costly to have a professional install outdoor lighting, consumers often assume lighting is beyond their budget. “However, solar accents are truly affordable,” she adds.

Resin garden statues resembling finely carved stone are popular in today’s outdoor spaces. Duncraft carries several that include a solar element. The Sweet Garden Girl kneels as she carefully cradles a giant butterfly in her hands. At dusk the butterfly, having ‘stored’ the sun’s energy, softly illuminates the evening garden.

Why solar power? Solar energy, the oldest form of energy, is the most inexhaustible, renewable source of power available. Every 15 minutes the sun produces enough power to supply the earth for an entire year. Solar energy is eco-friendly and it is a convenient, no-fuss ‘solution’ with many uses for today’s landscaping.
