Front Walkway built out of inexpensive cement pavers, red lava rocks, and solar lights

Our home had a simple walkway with cement pavers, which proved to be a hassle when we mowed the lawn. We finished the walkway simply by digging up the grass, adding red lava rocks, flowers, and solar lights to boost up our curb appeal!

    How have those solar lights been working...I have seen these basic "lowes" ones only last 6 months or so before they start to fail.

      @KMS Woodworks I have purchased some in the past and they work great only down fall it seems the gardener always runs them over!

    True that -- no matter what you pay --------Who want to have solar anything - when the technology can't even keep a walk way lamp lit.............Rechargibable batteries and all -- whata crock---

    No doubt! I think its time for some smart patent chaser to design and build some high quality solar lights that will ACTUALLY WORK reliably for more than a few months. I hate solar lights and lame ass christmas lights which are manufactured as cheaply as possible to maximize profits by the greedy toads in charge. They make this crap as cheap as possible so we the silly consumers will buy it, and then buy it again next season because the lights you bought last year are already toasted. Do you remember when the winning strategy for manufacturers was to build things as well as they could so that the product could last a lifetime and more? Don't you wish things still worked that way?
