How to connect electricity to your garden room? 


Connecting electricity to your garden room is fairly simple for a qualified professional. Electricity runs through a heavy duty armoured cable from your main home to your new garden room. It will run from the fusebox in the house to a consumer unit in the garden room. 


Firstly the armoured cable needs to be buried underground. This would normally require a trench to be dug first, and then the cable laid in the trench. Having the cable underground means that it is much safer than having it over ground, including having the cable running along a wall or fence. It takes away the danger of accidents and also will keep your garden looking at its best. Speaking to a qualified electrician will help you understand the ideal length for the trench and what best route it should take through your garden.
