Myself, and garden solar lights.

Is it just me that continually kicks them into touch like Johhny Wilkinson in a training session? I've lost count of how many snap off due to kicking them as I walk past. It doesn't matter if they line the path or surround the decorative none are safe. So, is it just me?

Missed the word gravel after decorative.

You must be 'dishing' like a cart-horse!

Move them away from the edge a bit seems to be the answer.

Most of mine have given up the ghost and I haven't bothered to replace them. Seems to be the batteries give up after a couple of years.

Haven't kicked any, but I did set fire to one when I was burning off some weeds I'd left a bit to long!

I thought the smoke was looking a bit black. Never mind, quick work with the watering can and all was serene again. A bi foolhardy really, as mine are mains fed (trust me I'm a H&S Officer!).

Still works a treat.

Following th winter wind and the trail broken fencing,a couple wound up in my work shop their brackets broken. The work shop has a poly carbonate roof.

A month or so ago went after dark to shed armed with a torch to find it was not qneedd perfectly lit up by those resued lights.

Seems I am the only half man half cart horse in the country. You wouldn't think so according to my wife. :)

mrwoowoo, have you considered wrapping pillows around your feet, to cushion the impact when you kick the lights?
