My house’s front lawn has a border of mulch on either side of the path from the sidewalk to the house and the path running perpendicular to that one (a T-shape). After we bought the house, the plants that were put in the mulch for curb appeal during the sale quickly died. I cared just enough to pull the dead plants out, but not enough to replant anything.
Fast forward to the pandemic, and I finally decided to bring some of that curb appeal back. I planted mums in the mulch, and my husband bought these solar lights to put in between. They’re incredibly easy to install — they have a sharp post on the back, so you can basically stand it up in the ground, then step on the light to push it in. My neighbor also has them but removed the post on the back and just placed them on the steps leading to their house.
If you get these lights, make sure you’re ordering the right ones — we originally bought white, which is more of a bright, LED-type white light, and exchanged them for “warm white,” which is more of a yellow light and matched the bulbs on our porch lights.
The lights are $43.99 for 12 at Amazon. Solar Ground Lights
