  1. Here is a way I came up to add lights to the posts I have on my front porch without having to nail or screw into the posts.  I start with a 1X6 treated board that I painted white to match the existing post and to make the lights reflect of the paint and seem brighter.  Next I divided the board into 4 sections and installed screws to string the lights on.  I attached the board to the post using a nylon rope and zip ties.

  2. I had them in my yard last year and they worked great.  The only thing is you have to watch the UPS and Postman they have a tendency to walk through the yard to get to the front door.  They have a 9in stake that they set on and the spacing between lights I think is about 10ft so you can space them out and make it look random.  I wish we had snow in south GA so I could see them glowing under the snow.
