    The integrated solar garden lights sold in packages of six or more at the big box stores in the US are very economical, but limited.

    If given full direct sun exposure during the day, the units with built-in 2"x2" panels, AA or AAA sized rechargeable batteries and a single LED can be attractive and also give useful light on the ground when mounted on a pole. But you should not expect them to shine for more than 4 or 5 hours after sunset. Sample price would be ~45 dollars for a set of 8. You cannot get the parts for anywhere close to that price.

    To get more light or for a longer period, you should look at lights with separate panel and battery. If you can avoid having to run wires from a central supply to multiple lights you might be better off, especially if you cannot bury the wires along your driveway.

    Are you looking for appearance or guide lights or do you want to cast useful light on the garden and driveway? The products for the two applications will be very different.
