Outdoor Lighting. Curb Appeal

To finish off our front garden, I wanted to replace the outdoor lights which had all but fizzled out anyway, so off  we set in search of Outdoor Garden Lights.

I had already visited World Market and bought lights for the Gazebo on the back deck – they are still in the box at present, but they will be hung very shortly – pictures to follow.

As I didn’t think my husband was really on board with searching for lighting, Home Depot was the choice as it was only a couple of miles from our home.

I didn’t realize how much choice there was, you would think I should have known by now living in America!  The choices included:- Security Lighting, Motion Sensor Lighting, String Lights, Post Lights, Deck Lights, Flood Lights, Spotlights……..really!

What type of outdoor lighting were we looking for? Simple outdoor solar garden lights, easy maintenance please.

After much deliberation, we took into consideration the price of course, our joint decision was, Hampton Bay Black Solar Path Lights, model #27600 $59.97 for a pack of 10.


Easy to assemble, popped straight into the garden. I didn’t expect them to be charged enough to illuminate the garden that very evening.

Imagine my surprise, when I looked outside, we had a floodlit floor show

Multifaceted lights, literally a laser show. We have outshined ourselves this time.

Had we looked at the box more closely it would have ruined our surprise.

The pictures are a very dark – well it was night time but you get the picture.

More Information about the Hampton Bay lights we chose.

I am thinking that the back garden needs a little refreshing now too.
