For those of you that install landscape lighting, what are some methods used to get the wiring under sidewalks or drives?
Thank you for any responses.

I would always start by digging a hole on both sides and then with a hose with a metal tip that connects to the fitting. Its hard to describe i made my end my self with things from the hardware store.

Use either a horizontal drill (rent) or a piece of 1/2 conduit attached to a water hose

That's the same way I was shown when I worked for a plumbing contractor.

I use a pressure washer. It's messy, but quick.

Dig a hole on both sides and hook a hose to 3/4 PVC and jet under walk.
