Solar Backyard: Gardening Tools That Can Be Solar Powered

Facebook icon Twitter icon Twitter icon Email icon
The idea of a solar garden is enticing to many people out there. If you’re working in the backyard and getting the green thumb perfected, you’re often thinking about ways to both protect the environment and maybe even save some money. Backyard solar lights and backyard solar panels are making their way to the top of the market to deliver for everyone that loves tending to their garden.

Not only can you light up your backyard without a direct electrical connection, but you can also power the majority of your gardening tools with solar. With the right setup, you won’t need to run extension cords out of the house and all across the lawn like you have in the past.

Solar power allows you to be more portable all while producing clean energy that won’t stop coming or cost you any extra. Overall, transferring to solar power in your backyard garden is one of the best moves to make for a variety of reasons.

Why Should You Use Solar Power for Gardening?

Solar power and gardening go hand in hand. The days that you want to be outside gardening are bound to be filled with sunshine as you start to tick off all of the chores that have been piling up on the gloomier days.

Using that sun to help you get outside as well as powering all of the tools necessary for your day’s work is the best way to get the most out of the day.

When you choose solar, you don’t need to run every extension cord that you own across the lawn, where they inevitably get in the way every time you try to move around. A portable power station moves with you and greatly reduces the length of the cords necessary.

Not only do you save on cords, you save on your overall electric bill. Solar energy is completely free after your initial investment and can quickly pay for itself when you are utilizing your backyard solar panels to their full potential. A lot of people find that the backyard gardening tools you need will quickly add up to a larger and larger electrical bill. With solar, that’s not the case.

Gardening Essentials You Can Power with Portable Solar Power

Almost all of the tools you need to maintain a tidy backyard can be powered purely by solar power. Here are some of the essentials that you can easily plug into your portable power station, all while harnessing the power of the sun.

Lawn Mower

Electric lawn mowers are quickly becoming more and more powerful as we see technology increase. The problem is the long extension cord or the short battery life that many of them have.

When you plug your electric lawn mower into the solar generator, you don’t need to concern yourself with watching out for the extension cord and potentially cutting it instead of just the grass.

Leaf Blower

Leaf blowers are another one of those gardening essentials that can be a hassle to haul around with a cord attached to it and back at the house. Utilizing solar power, you can keep it charged at all times and make sure it’s ready for you when you need it.

Hedge Trimmers

Hedge trimmers often require using them at awkward angles and in hard-to-reach places. When you plug a cord onto these, it’s hard to reach up high without it being in your way. With solar power, it will keep its charge, not requiring you to keep it plugged in all the time.


The same goes for using brushcutters more effectively. You can keep these powered at all times and not worry about draining power from your house.


Electric chainsaws are becoming more and more popular, but the energy required to charge them is still huge. When you switch over to solar, it’s far more cost-effective to use an electric chainsaw instead of the loud, gas-guzzlers that have been around for so long.

Pond Pumps

Having a portable solar generator in the backyard allows you to run electrical equipment at all times. Even when the sun isn’t out, the stored energy can power your pond pump and keep everything in working order.

Yard Lights

When the day comes to a close, you may still want to be out in the garden. Yard lights will gather solar throughout the day and stay lit up all night long, allowing you to enjoy the warm summer nights without a flashlight in hand at all times.

Bug Zappers

Running bug zappers at all times can become a huge cost over time. With the solar generator, you can harness the sun and transfer it over to destroy the pests that surround you all day and night.

Water Sprinklers

Water sprinklers with electrical pumps can be tough to keep plugged in when maintaining a large space. The solar generator allows you to easily keep them plugged in no matter where you place them in the yard.

Weed Whackers/Strimmers

With weed whackers, you’re constantly moving around the yard. An electric weed whacker is a great transition from a gas one, but you may find yourself nicking the cord constantly, making it more of a hassle than it’s worth. With solar power, you can set out without any worry.

In reality, you can use solar power to run any of your electric gardening tools. The benefits are huge, and you can finally move away from gas-powered engines that make gardening a loud and smelly activity.

Advantages of Solar-powered Gardening Tools

Cost Savings

As we’ve mentioned, moving to solar-powered gardening tools can be incredibly cost-effective. Backyard solar panels will pull power in all day long and store it in your power station (we recommend the INFINITY 1500 or the VITA 550), without costing you a penny.

Environmentally Friendly

Not only does solar energy save you money, it can save you from the guilt of harming the environment. The fumes put off by running gas-powered tools increase your environmental footprint. Switching over to a solar generator utilizes the sun, rather than the oil we would be burning instead.


If you’re looking to make your gardening more cost-effective, environmentally friendly, or simply easier for yourself, switching to a solar-powered backyard is the way to go. With the right setup, you can power everything you need with the sun.

The Growatt INFINITY 1500 and the VITA 550 are both built to take on the task of backyard home gardening with ease. Pair one of these with backyard solar panels and you can operate fully from the sun, rather than ever needing to worry about a small gas engine ever again.
