Hi Clogerhead. Thanks for the suggestion. I did consider that approach at the outset, however, we don't have a wall all the way down to the bottom of the garden: Privet one side and part fence & privet on the other side. Nothing to attach the trunking to for about 15m from the house
There was also a change in regulations governing electrical installations and this 'project' would now need sign off and to conform. IIRC, through research at the time, the regulations deemed a fence to be a 'temporary structure' and couldn't be used for fixing the cable (I stand to be corrected on that one)! Anyhoo, the burying option is the neatest and we have easy to dig soil so I am treating it as a personal challenge with a good bit of exercise thrown in (I need it)!!
