Solar garden animals are pieces of garden decor in the form of animal figurines that provide solar-powered light. The built-in lighting system gathers energy from sunlight during the day to charge the batteries. The light automatically turns on at night and turns off the following day.
Many online retailers sell various designs of solar garden animals, including frogs, turtles, insects, owls and peacocks, made from weatherproof resin or metal. Some are animal sculptures with colorful painting and intricate details, while others feature a mosaic design. Some come with a spotlight, while others have an LED light nestled inside the animal figure to create a soft, glowing light.
