Patio Umbrella with Led Solar Lights
When you have a need for shade during the day and still use your patio table after dark, a Patio Umbrella with Led Solar Lights will help with both problems. In this article we will look at several examples and see what works for you. All patio umbrellas will provide the shade that is needed, getting light after dark is what sets these umbrellas apart from others.
All of these patio umbrellas will be under $125, this may seem high for an umbrella, what you get is a umbrella that you can match to your outdoor decor and use any time you use your patio area, even after dark. This is the biggest advantage to a market umbrella with solar lights built in.
You can purchase an patio umbrella and add lights if you prefer, most lights will need an extension cord to the location and then run the power cord up the pole. Then you will have to find a way to hang the lights from the canopy of the umbrella.
I have done this with a set of outdoor decor lights and cloths pins. Not the best looking, it does work. If you want to go this route, look for an umbrella with the clips on the ends of the ribs to attach string lights to. For more of my information on this style of lighting for your patio area, follow this link to putting lights on your umbrella.
Now lets look at some solar lights that are included in the umbrella for great lighting solutions for your patio area. I will start with the smaller 7 foot umbrella and work up to the 10 foot so that you can get a size that works for your patio area.
