Lay the light fixtures along the road, spacing the fittings.

Switch the power to the outlet off. That power is off using a circuit expert.

Mount a transformer to the outlet.

Strip 1/2-inch on the finish near the transformer from the conclusion of this 12-gauge cable. Loosen the terminal screws onto the base of the transformer. Slide the wire that is stripped under the terminal screws. Tighten the screws across the wire.

Stand the light fixtures. Examine the spacing until the base of the light fixture will be flush with the garden surface and push the stake of this light fixture to the floor. Repeat this process are set up.
