One aspect of the backyard that was over looked was a corner that held the AC unit. The bed hadn't been touched this year, and I needed to add some outdoor low voltage lighting, so I grabbed my Ryobi P212 hammer drill and a masonry bit and went to town.
An easy hole through the mortar, some flex wire, and all-weather GFCI and I have power. Next, a 45 watt low voltage transformer (LED yard lights take almost no power), some 14/2 wire, and a few minutes later I have illumination for the new arborvitae in the corner.
Next, some scrap wood makes a frame, and lattice accents a surround for the AC that looks way better than the bare unit. My P501 circular saw, P523 jig saw and small but mighty P208B drill/ driver completes the unit cover. While we are at it, have all the tools out, and their is wood around, lets make a matching cover for the AC electric feed and Freon pipes.
Top the whole thing off with new red mulch, and that corner of the yard went from drab to fab!
