Attaching Lighting Fixtures and Outlets to Buried Cable- Part 4 of 7

  • This image illustrates various lighting fixtures and outlet boxes that you can connect to the buried cable at any point. It’s important to plan your yard lighting carefully before starting the job.
  • Plan ahead to determine where to install weatherproof outlet boxes (see image). These outlet boxes are especially handy around patios and recreational areas of your yard. They provide readily accessible receptacles for appliances, record players, radios, Christmas lights, etc.
  • Weatherproof outlet boxes also provide handy outlets for spike lights, electric lawn mowers, electric trimmers, etc.
  • Install protective conduit above ground where any weatherproof outlet box or elbow is installed.
