There is no doubt that a good set of lights in the back yard goes a very long way to extending the use of the back or side of the property. If the lighting scheme is designed specifically for the land, all well and good. The specialist installers do a fantastic job, ensuring that asolutely nothing is left to chance – lighting is a fantastic added bonus but only if it’s safe to use. Some amateurs have been known to use cheapest possible cables and rediculous bodges – like attaching bare wired with just isulating tape and other nightmares. The phrase “a little knowledge is a dangerous thing” has never been truer than an outside lighting job in the hands of a browsing hobbyist. . . . . Never ever worth while cutting corners or costs.
