I may just light up the 4 corners but also worried about being blinded by the light since I do not have posts to get it up high.
I'd be curious to hear responses too. I tried everything I could think of couple years back (like solar lights, dragging the extension cord all way down to the ring, etc.) and run out of -working- ideas.
