    My daughter is just about to have her garden landscaped. She has not thought about lighting or electrical requirements but thinks she may want some lights in the future.

    She already has external light and an external socket on her (new) home.

    To save time and hassle at a later date, I was thinking of laying some conduit in the ground before the landscaping starts. That way, if/when she does want lighting elsewhere, there will be a route available.

    Thinking is to run it from near her existing exterior light with a rope through it so that cable can be pulled through at a later date.

    Any thoughts would be welcome.

    Good idea to put a drawstring in for pulling the cables through but when you pull the cables through also pull another drawstring through.
    Lost count of the number of times people haven't done this and so had to pull a cable back out whilst pulling another string back through and then pulling it back in again.
