    Making the garden cosy with lights?

    Electricians

    Hi, I’ve got questions about putting up lights in the garden. 1. What’s the safest way to string up lights in a small tree? We’re talking 12ft high. 2. Will old outdoor xmas lights work? 3. How can I hide the wire between the garage and the tree safely?

    "Usually you can use a catenary wire or you can create a trench and bury it."

    "There's only one way if you want to hide the wire and that's underground, you will have to use Steel Armoured cable though which you will probably need an electrician to fit for you."

    "Old Xmas tree lights may not be weatherproof and they will need to be connected via RCD..
    Better using solar-type fitting on wires.
    They have a good range at qvc."
