New Solar Garden Accents -- Practical Beauty

Share Article

Enjoy a free-flowing fountain in a bird bath, soft ambient lighting gently floating about your pond, or the enchanting glow of a garden statue -- all without running a single electrical cord. Solar garden features reduce energy bills, are safe for the environment and installation is simple.

The Duncraft Catalog for wild bird and nature enthusiasts introduces a complete line of solar powered accents for yard, pond and garden, available online at

Sharon Dunn, President of Duncraft, says, ”Duncraft offers our customers a real alternative to expensive -- and often complicated -- electrical landscape accents. Customers are very pleased with our selection of solar-powered accents for bird baths, ponds and gardens. For instance, our elegant Copper Solar Bird Bath features a built-in water fountain, exquisite copper details—and the moving water attracts a flurry of bird activity. Bird lovers are very enthusiastic about this great new 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. I really like the ingenuity behind the Iluminarie™ Bird Feeder. This attractive feeder of decorative blue glass with copper accents casts a soft light in the evening garden."

The Iluminarie™ Globe and Pedestal creates an interesting focal point for the landscape. Dunn explains, "A swathe of blue, yellow and green envelops the glass ball to create an interesting visual effect for your daytime garden. And luminescent crystals on the glass surface absorb solar energy giving off a gentle, green glow at night. It's quite the conversation piece!

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. 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. Solar energy is eco-friendly and it is a convenient, no-fuss ‘solution’ with many uses for today’s landscaping.
