Back Yard Refresh

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!

Awesome work! It sounds like you gave your RYOBI collection a real workout! The AC unit really does look much nicer with the lattice surround. Very nice upgrades all around!
