Our advice Buying Guide

Solar garden globes add interest to gardens and yards day and night. When natural light is out, the colors of the globe add points of interest to an area. At night, after they have been powered by the sun, they glow. Venetians are credited with introducing glass ones in the 13th century for use in their gardens. In the early 20th century, wealthy Americans began adding them to their gardens.

They get their name because at various times in history they have been used to, among other things, keep an eye on courting couples and to see when guests need attention. Among the many names given to them have been:

  • Gazing globes
  • Gazing garden globes
  • Mirror balls
  • Lawn balls
  • Solar garden globes

Optimum Conditions

When using them, you can feel good because electricity is not used. Let them get at least eight hours of full sunlight each day for several days to reach their power potential. Then they can light the inside of the ball to display the beautiful patterns painted on them for approximately eight hours. Place them in a garden away from floodlights and street lights that could trip them on.

Avoid installing them in areas exposed to salty air or fertilizers to help minimize corrosion of its parts, which include a battery, post and more. Whereas their batteries can usually be replaced, the LEDs inside them cannot. Keep solar garden globes free of dust and clean them with a wet cloth. During winter, store them indoors.

Selection Choices

Most garden globes range in size from 2 inches in diameter to around 24 inches. Green, blue, red and yellow are popular colors. Materials they are made of include glass, stained glass, and ceramic materials. Mosaic patterns are also available.

Most solar garden globes are displayed on stands. Some stands are stone pedestals, while others are wrought iron. A very interesting stand looks like a vase made of tree branches. Simply place your globe inside it. This stand is a good fit for your porch or inside your home. With bird feet, another stand allows you to place a globe on a horizontal pole.

One globe is literally a black-and-silver globe/world map comes with a short stand attached to it, which makes it perfect for placing on a table. A really different take on the presentation of a solar globe is a wrought iron cage that can be hung from a tree branch. Globes do not have to be hung. They may be placed on the ground.

The pendulum has swung. Solar garden globes are popular in America again. Make your selection soon to add color and something new to the grounds of your home.
