High-quality, low-voltage underground landscape lighting wire for reliable, long-lasting landscape and outdoor lighting

Our premium underground low voltage landscape lighting wire makes it super easy to set up long-term outdoor low voltage lighting

Part number: 8756


There’s something so satisfying about outdoor lighting. It’s great for security and helps us safely navigate to our cars after long hours in the office and through our yards when we get home in the dark. It lets us entertain and revel in our gardens after the sun sets, adding a new dimension of enjoyment and extending the amount of time we can delight in these aspects of our homes. And outdoor lighting is wonderful for celebrating special events (where would we be without Christmas lights?).

Unfortunately, the joy of outdoor lighting projects can be quickly soured by the frustrations of laying cables to connect the lights with their power source.

Here at Syston Cable Technology, we want to make installing outdoor lighting as easy as possible for professionals and DIY, even if you’re going to bury the electrical cable. So, we developed dedicated low-voltage, landscape lighting wire to help you get the job done faster and more easily.

With over 35 years of manufacturing low voltage wires and cables, we can produce the highest quality and most cost-effective landscape lighting wire, so the significant savings are passed along to our customers. As a major wire producer, our role is to ensure that the wires and cables that go into the systems are as reliable as the other components … the net result is a fully integrated system that will provide peace of mind to the system user.

This wire is a heavy gauge (12/2) to ensure it holds up well over long distances. And while other thick wire is finicky to lay, we’ve developed flexible cables that make installing our 12 AWG lighting wire as easy as can be. To make it even easier, we’ve added clear print legend and E-Z footage markings that mean you can install your cabling faster and more accurately without the need for a measuring tape. You might also find our wiring diagram helpful if you’ve never installed outdoor lighting before.

The clear print legend and E-Z footage markings in conjunction with it being flexible and comprising stranded conductors, make our landscape lighting wire super easy to install — no matter whether you’re a professional installer or DIYer.

Our landscape lighting wire isn’t just easy to install though. It’s certified to be free of hazardous materials that could make you, your family, or your clients sick, and it’s flame-retardant in case of fire. It’s sunlight-resistant, suitable for underground burial, and able to withstand a wide variety of cold and hot temperatures, so you can lay this durable cable pretty much anywhere outdoors in any part of North America.

Importantly, our lighting wire has been certified to meet or exceed a host of standards and has been verified by a third party, giving you the confidence to lay this cable without worrying about poor manufacturing or defects.

At Syston Cable Technology, we’re committed to raising standards, continuously innovating, and developing superior cable solutions for today’s evolving technologies. Engineered and tested to exceed the highest quality standards, Syston Cable Technology produces the most trusted and complete selection of low-voltage cable today.

With Duraflex® Landscape Lighting Wire as your foundation, your landscape lighting is ready to meet today’s demand and evolve to meet tomorrow’s requirements.

So, if you want high-quality cables for your outdoor lighting application, our premium 12/2 landscape lighting wire is UV-resistant, heavy-gauge, and durable, so it’ll last years even out in the hot sun. And better yet, you can lay it directly in contact with bare soil, so it’s great for lighting applications that need underground wiring as well. Plus it comes with convenient features like clear print legend and E-Z footage markings to make installation an absolute breeze. Order yours now.

Pro Tips

  1. You can run a 12-gauge (12 AWG) wire about 100 feet without experiencing any voltage drop as long as the total wattage of the fixtures connected to it is 100 Watts or less.
  2. If you’re installing outdoor lighting, check your cable and connectors are listed as suitable for direct burial. This will mean they’re resistant to corrosion, sun damage, and other weather-related problems over time.


Splicing Recommendations: Wire splices are the weak link of any electrical circuit. It is especially important to make proper joints in landscape lighting systems because the joints are exposed to wet and damp environments that can cause corrosion of the copper conductor, premature failure, and fires. Syston Cable Technology recommends the strict use of Model DBR/Y-6, as manufactured by the 3M Company, or Silicone-filled wire nuts as manufactured by IDEAL Industries
