It seems like I only have to drive past Target to drop $50. Make that $100. Easy. Their home & garden aisles call my name. And it all seems so cheap before it gets added up at the checkout line.
And you know how it is. The dollar aisle smacks you the second you walk into the store. Suddenly I’m grabbing stuff left and right and chucking it into my cart. Then I start checking out their fences, trendy garden accessories, pots and most of all…..solar lights! That’s just the way it is. I love solar lights. Tom loves solar lights. As if you didn’t notice that everyone seems to be using tons of solar lights these days. Are you?!?
We put them in the corners of our raised beds and around the perimeter to our house. They add a pleasant glow and help us see at night when we are working after dusk. You can never have too many solar lights, and they never get tacky. [Well….I’ll take that “never” right back then].
Benefits to using solar powered garden lights?
- Least expensive type of outdoor lighting
- Simple installation and you don’t need to deal with wiring of any kind
- Friendly to the environment because it uses the suns energy not electricity
- Use on stairs and other hazard zones in your yard to help guide walkers at night and avoid potential dangers like a large rock or fountain

- Easy to move! Change your mind and move them around the yard, patio, pool, garden, driveway
- Well-lit outdoor space deters potential burglars and adds to your safety
