    I am at the planning stage of re-doing my garden and want to know the feasibility of putting a new outdoor socket at the bottom of the garden.

    Currently I have 13a FCU from the ring main which goes through the wall to an outside socket on the house which I would prefer to retain. Is it possible to have an armoured cable (buried) from this current outside socket to a new outside socket at the bottom of the garden 15m away?

    yes it is feasible just use 2.5mm swa from outside socket to new socket having cable buried at the required depth with warning tape. Because it will still be rated at 13 amps and being controlled by the FCU.

    As above but you only need 1.5mm SWA

    As above but you only need 1.5mm SWA. If you don’t want to bury it then clip it.
