Plan the location of headlights, spotlights and walkway lights and place lights in their place on the ground. Dig a trench to the extent required for outdoor pathway lighting for directly burying power lines. Remove any sharp stones and roots that can damage the coating on the wire. Place the removed soil to the side of the ditch so that it can be replaced after the wire is installed. Let at least 3 feet of excess directly bury the wire and follow the lights around the path for the planned lights.

Measure the width of the ramp or sidewalk with a tape measure and cut a length of wire allowing 6 inches more than the width of the surface with a pipe cutter. Maintain the same depth as the trench when installing in landscaping. Crimp at the end of a piece of wire and use a sledge hammer to drive the lead according to the solid surface. Cut off the crimped end with a pipe cutter when it reaches the other side of the solid surface. Connect the lights with the selected connectors for splicing fixtures in the wire. Test the connections by turning on the power to ensure that each joint is working properly.  Put the thread in the trench. Cover with shafts and soot.
