Top Outdoor Lighting Installation related questions

How do I install outdoor lighting?

First, lay out the electric wiring for the transformers and cables. Take note of where the outdoor electrical outlets are, and avoid any tree roots or underground utilities in your yard. Next, dig shallow trenches for your wires and start connecting the wiring. Install the light fixtures and connect their fixture wires to the main cable. Finally, test the lights by plugging the transformer into the outlet. Once everything is working well, bury all exposed wires. 

How do I hang outdoor Christmas lights?

You can do this by hanging them onto your rooflines or eaves or wrapping them around pillars, plants, and fences. You can also drape lights on window boxes and planters, or put nails around your windows and drape the lights there. For more ambitious lighting concepts, you might want to talk to outdoor lighting specialists or book a Tasker who’s familiar with landscaping lighting. 

How do I install outdoor sensor lights?

Start by mounting the adjustable crosspiece from the light onto the electrical box. Next, attach the rubber gasket onto the light and connect the wiring with a wire cap. Then, attach the light assembly to the electrical box bracket. Make sure the gasket is aligned before you screw everything in place. Then, connect the bulbs and seal the fixture with silicone caulk. Finally, test the motion sensor light to make sure it works.

What does an outdoor lighting installation service include?

Our electrical experts can pretty much cover the typical garden lighting solutions: decorative lamps, outdoor Christmas lights, and motion sensor lights. When you post a task, it would be helpful to specify what kind of lights you need the Tasker to install, so prospective specialists can assess their ability to take on the task. Plus, it’ll help your chosen Tasker prepare the necessary tools for setting up your lights.

While the specifics may vary slightly depending on the Tasker you pick and the kinds of garden lighting solutions you have, here’s what you can expect when you request an outdoor lighting specialist on Airtasker:

Tools for outdoor lighting installation

When you request a Tasker to put up lights outside your home or in your garden, they’ll arrive with all the necessary equipment or tools. This includes screwdrivers, wire cutters, electrical tape, etc. No need to run down to the hardware store or look for your toolbox - your outdoor lighting specialist will have the materials on-hand. 

Wiring and set-up for outdoor lighting

The first part of setting up outdoor lights is planning where the wires should go. Your Tasker needs to see where the outdoor electrical outlets are and where you want each light fixture to be. From here, the Tasker may consult with your utility company about any underground cables that need to be avoided. Once a layout for the wires is set, your Tasker digs shallow trenches for the cables that will connect each light fixture to the outlet. 

Installing different kinds of outdoor lighting

Taskers can usually handle different kinds of light fixtures. These include spotlights, floodlights, step lights, bollard lights, motion sensor porch lights, and so on. Each of these lights has a different aesthetic and practical purpose, and some Taskers may be able to give tips on how to best use each one. 

Other garden lighting solutions

Once the lights are set up, they’ll test to make sure that everything works. Then, they’ll check to make sure you’re satisfied with the look and the set-up of your new lights. Finally, they’ll bury all exposed wires in your garden or lawn, pack up their toolkit, and be on their way.

Outdoor lighting isn’t the only chore that Taskers can help you with. We can help you find gardeners and even solar panel specialists who can help you build, improve, or renovate your home!
