Unlike lesser plastic driveway markers that crumble under the weight of automobiles or deteriorate in inclement weather, these tough aluminum alloy units (set of four) are virtually indestructible. The markers alert drivers to nearby lawns or flowerbeds, and can be used on garden or deck steps to illuminate stairs. Top-mounted solar panels collect energy during the day to power six bright, side-mounted LEDs that turn on automatically at dusk (can also be controlled by an on/off switch). The LEDs shine clearly, have a steady and blinking setting, and are visible even under 2″ of snow, making it easier to find the right place to safely park. They secure atop paved or wooden surfaces with an adhesive backing that does not harm the surface. Bui lt-in NiMH battery runs for 8 hours on a full charge, and the solar panels can collect energy even during 60% cloud cover.
A set of 4 solar markers will cost you $64.95.
Show off garden accessories like fountains or light a path through your yard with a solar-powered light that needs neither electricity nor maintenance. Unlike some solar lights that stand out in your landscaping, the 6-Inch Solar Rock Spotlight is embedded in an authentic-looking rock, turning on automatically at dusk to light your way.
The built-in solar panel collects and converts sunlight into DC power every day while the pre-installed rechargeable battery stores the energy to power the light at night. The internal photo sensor turns the super-bright LED lights on automatically when it gets dark and turns them off at dawn. Solar power and LED lights save you money and help preserve the nature… 😉
The price of the Solar Rock Spotlight is $19.99
