Although outdoor wiring practices are very similar to indoor wiring practices, there are a few important differences. When wiring outdoors, you must take special precautions to protect all wiring and devices from water or even dampness. Some of this is done indoors, especially in bathrooms in kitchens, but it is required everywhere outdoors. Outdoor wiring must also be protected from lawnmowers, shovels and other things that can lead to a short circuit. Whether you are building a shed, a landscape lighting system or an outdoor living room, make sure you follow these guidelines to stay as safe as possible.
