  5. Saundra York on June 24, 2020 at 7:14 pm

    I can’t l listen to her voice any longer — it is grating on my nerves

  6. Bonnie Mechefske on June 24, 2020 at 7:15 pm

    Dear Lowe’s scriptwriter: Please do not start every transition with the word alright. Alright?

  7. Renee on June 24, 2020 at 7:16 pm

    Do you turn off the breaker switch somewhere before you do this?

  8. Dangerous One on June 24, 2020 at 7:17 pm

    Two suggestions, use a perfectly flat, heavy duty shovel to cut a line into the mulch and spread apart to lay wire into it. Much easier and faster. Also, use a sidewalk tunneling kit, attach to a hose and it’ll do all the work for you instead of having to hammer the conduit under the cement. Great video. Thank you.

  9. Trend hopper on June 24, 2020 at 7:19 pm

    Yes please bring Monica back

  10. asdasd on June 24, 2020 at 7:19 pm

    You made it look so easy

  11. Steve Yager on June 24, 2020 at 7:20 pm

    Whoa, wait now. How now that trench in the driveway look after you’ve filled it though? Is there a super noticeable line in the middle?

  12. PBS #007 on June 24, 2020 at 7:22 pm

    thanks for all the info

  13. Francisco Nava on June 24, 2020 at 7:23 pm

    What type of bushes are those next to magnolia to the left?

  14. Loved1 Lost1 on June 24, 2020 at 7:29 pm

    Yes, bring it back. She’s the bomb.com! Miss you Monica,

  15. Raul Andre Petrasanta on June 24, 2020 at 7:29 pm

    This is Monica’s house! From weekender S1 E8!

  16. Lkeidd on June 24, 2020 at 7:30 pm

    This was a really cool idea but it just seems like a lot of work and extra money I don’t have. I think solar lights are my best bet.

  17. Cuban Surfer on June 24, 2020 at 7:33 pm

    So, am I the only one that noticed that the poor guy is just there as hired help? He does all the work and all she does is talk…🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️. Next time have the guy talk. His the one that knows what he’s doing!!!

  18. Emmanuel Toney on June 24, 2020 at 7:33 pm

    Beautiful!

  19. TopicRuben on June 24, 2020 at 7:34 pm

    That was beautiful, but not really pet proof! My dogs will dig all those wires out!

  20. carlos n on June 24, 2020 at 7:34 pm

    This 2020 just get solar lights

  21. Camden Simon on June 24, 2020 at 7:35 pm

    However, failing to bury the wires in the bed will be a nightmare when changing the mulch out. ALWAYS trench wire in beds

  22. Silvio Alcantara on June 24, 2020 at 7:37 pm

    somehow I feel my experience will differ lol

  23. Tech for Daddy on June 24, 2020 at 7:38 pm

    Loved it, keep them coming!

  24. Frankie McCall Power on June 24, 2020 at 7:40 pm

    Great tutorial thank you

  25. Robbi Rob on June 24, 2020 at 7:44 pm

    is that amy shwimmer?

  26. Jamie Fairlie on June 24, 2020 at 7:44 pm

    What kind of grass is that cause its so beautiful and lush

  27. vicky tan on June 24, 2020 at 7:47 pm

    Love your work! But after watch your full video, I also decide to buy solar light.

  28. How To do it on June 24, 2020 at 7:48 pm

    This is 12v AC volts so keeping the like wires together won’t really matter. There is no polarity on ac voltage. It’s only important for DC volts.

  29. Minnesota Vikings on June 24, 2020 at 7:48 pm

    Have they done series lighting or parallel lighting?

  30. We Are Showboat on June 24, 2020 at 7:48 pm

    Show us the driveway after picture!!!

  31. Robert Wagner on June 24, 2020 at 7:50 pm

    Great video, how would you handle a situation where the yard is not level in front of the house? If you’re trying to have balance and the lights are different heights is there a solution?

  32. Damon on June 24, 2020 at 7:50 pm

    OMG! Get some solar up lighting and path lighting will save you all these hard labor.

  33. Roger McElfresh on June 24, 2020 at 7:52 pm

    Call before you dig!!!! Don’t start digging and hit cable, phone, water, or possibly power.

  34. rrruizzz on June 24, 2020 at 7:52 pm

    Those 8 wires going into the transformer look messy. I’d rather wire nut them to two wires and have only those two go into the transformer. Great How-To otherwise.

  35. No Name on June 24, 2020 at 7:54 pm

    Her voice is irritating

  36. Pender, Party of 2! on June 24, 2020 at 7:54 pm

    Concret walkway not cement.

  37. Jane Shattuck on June 24, 2020 at 7:55 pm

    Wow. Absolutely stunning. Monica is my favorite designer, period. She creates just beautiful, livable spaces.

  38. random crap on June 24, 2020 at 7:57 pm

    How many lights can you put on each transformer

  39. Keep it Simple Please on June 24, 2020 at 7:57 pm

    That was a lot of work.

  40. Dirk Digler on June 24, 2020 at 7:58 pm

    Thank you! i havs a question tho, at the end when connecting to transformer i wasn’t clear how you attached, And i have an older (1939) french colonial that has 110 electric service..would there be an issue with the same amount of lighting you used in your video?
    thank you again! im at Loews at least once a WEEK

  41. Dude on June 24, 2020 at 7:58 pm

    Love this guide but the transformer at the entry is so ugly!!!

  42. Sam 2000 on June 24, 2020 at 7:59 pm

    17:30, Is it OK to just lay electricity wires on the ground? No conduit of any sort needed? What if water and elements damage the wire and cause fire?

  43. Polo Man on June 24, 2020 at 7:59 pm

    Thanks for including the product links in the description.

  44. AmraphelofShinar on June 24, 2020 at 8:04 pm

    I saw the light, I saw the light… no more darkness, no more night…

  45. E G on June 24, 2020 at 8:04 pm

    Crap….I bought 16/2 wire…do I need 12/2??

  46. Lizette M on June 24, 2020 at 8:05 pm

    What was the total costs for this project minus labor ?

  47. Tara Sprankel on June 24, 2020 at 8:06 pm

    Please make an easy DIY Patio!😘

  48. DazzleGazza on June 24, 2020 at 8:07 pm

    The amount of effort is not worth doing this. Also you don’t need light for the backyard where nobody goes or sees at night

  49. Crystal Fowler on June 24, 2020 at 8:08 pm

    I love this!!!!😍🤩👍🏾
