When planning your landscaping, Christmas-Outdoor-Lighting needs to be considered and planned for to provide for adequate electricity to the main features and yard displays you want to light. Outlets can be placed in specific points throughout the yard with underground wiring laid out when underground irrigation lines are laid.
This will prevent having to have a lot of extension cords all over the yard.
Consider the following:
* Decisions as to the type of lights to use must be made.
* Do you plan to use solar lighting?
* What about low voltage lighting?
* Where to you want your feature lighting areas?

Many people love to plan their layout for holiday lighting. Their holiday lighting efforts start with a small area the first year; perhaps a tree, or 2 reindeer. Then gradually, year after year, lights are added to maturing trees and bushes as the yard grows., Then each succeeding year comes and goes, and more lighting is added.
If you cannot do the work yourself, there are companies that specialize in putting up lights. At Temple Square in Salt Lake City, they begin stringing the lights on the trees in early November. Then on the day after Thanksgiving, all the lights are lit at once. People delight in going to the "lighting at Temple Square ceremony"
Christmas lighting becomes a "work of art" that is planned for all year long. It will often become a competition with the community to have the best lighting in town.
