Outdoor light rec?

Posted by teddychicago (My Page) on

I recently bought a $3 solar powered LED path light from Wal-Mart just to try it out and see what the light was like. I do not like it. It is too white and fluorescent looking.

Can anyone recommend a brand of a solar powered light that produces a soft light, like an incandescent bulb? Or a place to look? I also plan to uplight a birch tree, but also with a gentle light. Our street is very dark (street lights only on the corners and not many people keep porch lights on). Or perhaps suggest something else I should consider?

I would consider low voltage if it's easy for me to figure out. Is this something I can just plug in to an outdoor outlet and hide the wires under mulch?

Thank you for any advice!
