I ripped out old, wet Hxxxo in-ground lights, old wiring with pierce point connectors, an old XXX transformer that was putting out more than 13.5 volts from a 124-volt primary. I had to maneuver under a weeping Japanese Maple which draped to the ground and try to dig an 18"-deep hole with my soil knife in a corner behind the tree to place a new transformer mount.
There's still lots more to be done, but after dark with a few lights complete, I was able to see what I had achieved. Work? This is way too much fun!
Yep, it's not a bad way to make a living :-)
