I have installed low voltage (12 watts) lights in the garden. They look quite good.

Question: Do I leave the wire alone, maybe covered with mulch? Also, I had to try a couple of times to get some of the lights working. So the wire has some holes. Is this ok? Obviously, this area is watered and I do not want to trip any thing.

When we did ours I had a 3 inch trench dug for the wire took me 10 minutes to go around the house.Then we installed the lights made sure they worked and buried the wiring.

As far as the little holes,we didnt get that problem I just kept pushing till they came on. I guess I would use a liquid black tape.

Does anybody know a good place to find low voltage deck lights? I am looking for small (10 watt) lights that can be screwed along deck railings.

The holes in the wires won't hurt because it's low voltage.
