Installing outdoor landscape lighting couldn’t get any easier!
Hi friend, this is Jeff from Home Repair Tutor and if you need better outdoor lighting this video is for you. You’ll need only a few tools for this project and a only a few tools.
Having an exterior GFCI outlet is pretty much the only requirement to install outdoor lighting. You’ll plug a power pack into the GFCI and run wire from that power pack to your lights.
Make sure to pick a power pack that can handle the power of all your lights. I chose a 200W power pack because I installed a flood light (50W) and 4 path lights (each having 11W of power). So the 94W from the lights is less than the 200W limit on the power pack. Simple stuff.
One big tip is to use 12/2 low voltage wire. This helps prevent voltage drops and dimming of lights that are far from the power pack. You’ll have to cut the insulation off the end of the wire and attach it to the power pack.
Then each light will attach to the wire via a cable-to-fixture connector. You can then bury the cable in a 6 inch trench.
