Most outdoor lights communicate containing a 12 V transformer sealed in a weatherproof box, a length of cable and 6 to 12 fixtures, although you may prefer to assemble the elements separately with a variety of fixtures.
The transformer can be mounted on a wall near outdoor receptacle. If this location requires more than 100 feet of cable to supply fixtures, you must allow for voltage drop. Voltage drop is a slight consumption of electrical pressure by wires that have dim distant lights.
Lighting design sensitively with the overall landscape plan can help to create one of the most relaxing and enjoyable aspects of the garden design. Up lights are primarily for illuminating trees and vertical surfaces. Downlights illuminate the ground plane and cast interesting shadows on the ground. Twinkle lights and floodlights are used primarily for decorative use.
In most commercial wire, a bare copper or green insulated grounding wire provides an alternate path for leaking current, protecting the overal circuit from damage and the user from electrical wiring shock. To strip a cable, first remove the sheathing from the end of it. Push the blade of a utility knife into the sheathing 8 inches from the end of the cable, then draw the blade back to the end of the cable to cut the sheathing. Peel back the sheathing and use diagonal cutting pliers. That's it!
