Solar Landscape Lights

We've been hard at work in our backyard, planting a vegetable garden, laying down mulch, clearing out dead shrubs and other overgrown plants. We're working with a tight budget and trying to avoid making big (i.e. expensive) decisions about lighting and a watering system until we've lived in the space for a while. Which is why solar lights are our new best friends. Jump below for a (dark) shot of our lights in action....

We're keen on the amber-colored lights, they glow so warm that it almost seems that we've lit a few candles along our path (so Martha!)...cheap, simple and couldn't be easier to "install" (hint: stick them in the ground). We don't love the black plastic housing, but have managed to sneak them in and around plants so that they're barely noticeable during the day.

We picked ours up at Home Depot last year during a weekend sale event where a 10-pack cost a measly $49. We've seen similar lamps at OSH and Lowe's but haven't been able to find the same killer deal recently. We've had ours for almost a year and haven't had to replace a single battery....go solar!

Single lamps available online at Ace Hardware for $7.99.
