hello I am having some garden landscaping done in a fortnight with a view to installing a pond and a deck later in the year. The'site clearance' (removing leylandii stumps etc) and installing new fencing will be done in a fortnight, but the pond build will not start until October. I would like just to run a length of appropriate cable from the house end to the pond end (maybe 22m) while the landscaping is being done, leaving a suitable length of cable at either end for the Part P electrician to do what he needs to do to connect into the "house" and provide the necessary socketry in the garden. All I want to do is get the cable in place while the landscapers are on site. The "ideal" route (from my uniformed perspective) would be along the new fence line - concrete posts with 12" gravel boards) - at ground level snug to the concrete posts and gravel boards. A path will be constructed above the cable along the line of the top of the gravel board - so 12" or so above the cable. I'm happy to lay it in a conduit if necessary. i just don't want to have to dig everything up once the landscapers have finished! the supply would need to support a pond pump, a bit of outdoor lighting, and some electrical garden tools (hedge trimmer sort of thing) rather than running a long extension cable from the house. I'm not trying to shave pennies off the job here, I just want to get the sequencing right and not have to dig up a path or a flower bed that the landscapers have painstaking created. So I would really appreciate advice on: - cable routing - is what i'm suggesting OK, if not - what is the right way? - what sort of cable should I run? - should it go in a conduit? very many thanks!
