Let there be light!

The neat thing about these garden lights, like the 12-pack from Sunnest, isn't just that they use solar power so you don't have to run wires through your garden. They are also designed to automatically turn themselves on and off, so they save and absorb energy during the day then light up at night exactly when you need them.

Assuming it's a sunny day out, most of these lights can last for several hours. Even the decorative lights like the Wohome Lily Flowers can last for up to eight hours after a solid day of absorbing the sun's rays. These lights help you keep your garden looking beautiful even when it's nighttime and you can't see the regular flowers blooming. Of course, if you need to keep some pesky rabbits out of your garden, you could get the MagicPro security lights that are designed to not turn on until they detect motion.
