Lighting systems have various installations. The easiest and most common one is landscape lighting wiring. Landscape lighting wiring consists of UV resistant and low voltage wire, which is advisable on various landscapes such as patio, garden, and walkways.
Homeowners must consider two factors; the first one is the ground aeration, and the second is dethatching before the installation starts. Lighting wiring should be buried at least 6 to 12 inches deep to prevent water absorption, wire breakage, and cuts.
