What do lizard eggs need to hatch?

While cleaning out my Arizona garden, I stumbled across a pair of desert spiny lizards in a bucket left over from planting a tree weeks before. Since the I knew I would continue to work (cleaning weeds, etc.) I decided to let them go away from the house. I released them in a natural habitat area about fifty yards from the house. I later came back to the garden to continue to remove some debris and then found a clutch of about 8 eggs I'm sure belonged to the now "released" lizards. I don't intend on removing the eggs to care for them - like incubating them somehow - but would like to give them a fighting chance to hatch. That is, if there is anything to be done at this point. My yard has block wall around it, I'm sure mom n pop wont be back.
So - does anybody know if these eggs are doomed without parent lizards close. Anything to be done to help them along?
