    great job with the video. She did a great job explaining things.

  2. Todd H on September 18, 2022 at 6:28 pm

    Nice but unfortunately this would attract way too many insects at night in my area.

  3. gp on September 18, 2022 at 6:32 pm

    0:58 hahaha😂😂

  4. Austin on September 18, 2022 at 6:36 pm

  5. David Karstensen on September 18, 2022 at 6:37 pm

  6. Alex Delgado Jr on September 18, 2022 at 6:37 pm

    She thick!!

  7. Alex Iheaka on September 18, 2022 at 6:37 pm

    Nice video. I wonder how the electrical wires will be affected during the rainy season. Isnt water going to get into the wires where there are connections?

  8. fuqui035 on September 18, 2022 at 6:39 pm

    What did you do with the pipe

  9. Kenyon Ferguson on September 18, 2022 at 6:42 pm

    How to install video using an electrician lol!

  10. Fallen Gamerrr on September 18, 2022 at 6:42 pm

    I would light up the branches

  11. Tina Balciunaite on September 18, 2022 at 6:43 pm

    How did you connect the wires within the zones, from one light to another

  12. gp on September 18, 2022 at 6:47 pm

    10:50 yea yea we know😂😂

  13. Jeremy Courtney on September 18, 2022 at 6:49 pm

    Convincing my wife to standby as I saw the driveway in half is going to be fun

  14. Forever Ethereal on September 18, 2022 at 6:50 pm

    Great video! It’s been years. Perhaps everyone’s calmed down about the driveway and taking the easy route with solar lights 🤭

  15. irainkoolaid2 on September 18, 2022 at 6:52 pm

    yeaa orrrr go solar powered

  16. Clark Riccobuono on September 18, 2022 at 6:52 pm

    This was the best DIY video I have watched yet on this subject. Thank you

  17. Sameena Mehdi on September 18, 2022 at 6:53 pm

    You are awesome at explaining the process and knowing that people want to save money by doing projects themselves. Looking forward to sharing the video w my husband and attempting this soon.

  18. Ethel Irvin on September 18, 2022 at 6:56 pm

    AWESOME, JUST AWESOME GREAT WORK YOU BOTH HAS DONE. HOW DO I GO ABOUT GETTING HELP TO GET LIGHTS IN MY GARDEN ? THANK YOU FOR YOUR WOBDERFUL VIDEO.

  19. Mommy & Me "Natural Beauties" on September 18, 2022 at 6:57 pm

    Thank you for making this look doable. I have a lighting system in my backyard and it keeps going out. I’ve replaced the transformer once but I believe the wires at one v of the lights is too exposed and not covered very well. Could be getting wet. I need to have another electrician come out and take a look

  20. Hung Nguyen on September 18, 2022 at 6:59 pm

    How far from the wall did you put the light that shines (up) the wall? Thank you. What is the name or item number of the pipe you put underneath the walk way?

  21. Rachel Evolve on September 18, 2022 at 7:00 pm

    Just call someone to do it for you.

  22. Get Pretty Fit on September 18, 2022 at 7:00 pm

    Too complicated. I stopped watching when she said dig under the walkway. I will buy some dollar tree solar lights.

  23. Geno Casino on September 18, 2022 at 7:01 pm

    Why not just use solar lights without all the cords?

  24. Sam Abdallah on September 18, 2022 at 7:02 pm

    What is wrong with getting a solar light?

  25. William Peloquin on September 18, 2022 at 7:03 pm

    I know people understand what is meant, but for whatever reason, it bothers me when people say "level" instead of "plumb". 3:06

  26. kike D on September 18, 2022 at 7:06 pm

    So much work! I got tired just watching

  27. joseph Norcal USA #1 on September 18, 2022 at 7:08 pm

    Helpful information, thank you for sharing !

  28. Rustic75 on September 18, 2022 at 7:08 pm

    I don’t have outdoor power 🤦🏽‍♀️😭

  29. Geter Granados on September 18, 2022 at 7:08 pm

    Why yellow lights? And are you related to Amy Schumer?

  30. Nathan Young on September 18, 2022 at 7:09 pm

    Extremely helpful video. Love how you showed how to get around some of the more commonly encountered obstacles. Gave me the information and confidence I needed to tackle it myself

  31. jerz.nate on September 18, 2022 at 7:10 pm

    I need to find a video install on a rocky hill

  32. Joe Te on September 18, 2022 at 7:10 pm

    looks great, but what about Solar lights? not bright enough?

  33. maeu59 on September 18, 2022 at 7:10 pm

    How do you change the lumens on these lights

  34. Rusty Denham on September 18, 2022 at 7:10 pm

    I would never compromise my driveway for lights they could have run wire across the driveway via the house go from the front yard under the pathway into the house across the garage then into the yard on the other side of the drive. With the proper transformer the extra run of cable would be fine with no risk of a ungly cut and patch in your driveway.

  35. Allen wrench on September 18, 2022 at 7:11 pm

    just don’t purchase Kichler – absolute garbage

  36. Richard Recupero on September 18, 2022 at 7:14 pm

    I don’t know how I feel about that wire being pinched in the driveway crack. Maybe make a second pass to give the wire some breathing room.

  37. rick salazar on September 18, 2022 at 7:14 pm

    with the amount of time and money this took just top light up a tree. Go solar an save yourself money and time. This was not worth it but i commend you on all the work just not worth the effort. too many solar options out there. They are so cheap i d rather buy new solar every couple of years once they start dieing.

  38. Dona Davis on September 18, 2022 at 7:14 pm

    I’m a 70 year old woman who installed my outdoor lighting successfully! I bought everything that was used in the video and followed the directions to the letter. Thank you! I’m a happy senior!

  39. Jill Rehn on September 18, 2022 at 7:14 pm

    How did you handle getting the wire from the transformer to the bed ? Where did you hide it?

  40. gp on September 18, 2022 at 7:14 pm

    Nicee

  41. gp on September 18, 2022 at 7:15 pm

    3:17 yea yea we know

  42. Mira3441 on September 18, 2022 at 7:16 pm

    That was a great tutorial! Thanks!!

  43. Abdul khan on September 18, 2022 at 7:23 pm

    Talk too much without substance

  44. Davina Alavirosa on September 18, 2022 at 7:24 pm

    Sure drop the ball on the wire part and installing wires from light to light.

  45. pete32 adn on September 18, 2022 at 7:25 pm

    That transformer post will bend on the side eventually. He just needs to mix a bag of $6 cement down the hole or mix with some small rock or gravel. Other than that, this is a great tutorial.

  46. Surge on September 18, 2022 at 7:25 pm

    ah i thought this would be a plug and play project lol

  47. jose jusino on September 18, 2022 at 7:25 pm

    When you run the cable under the sidewalk try to do it directly below an expansion joint. All sidewalks will crack directly above any cable you run under the sidewalk. 30 years experience

  48. Rob on September 18, 2022 at 7:27 pm

    So, how far should the spot lights be away from the wall ? You specified the distance for the floods, but not the spot lights.

  49. Esther Olawuyi on September 18, 2022 at 7:27 pm

    quick question…. do you not need gloves for safety reasons? or am I overthinking?

  50. Amber Agot on September 18, 2022 at 7:28 pm

    AC or DC 12 volts ??? Please inform
