Planning to install low voltage lighting in my landscape, but have no nearby outdoor receptacle. Planning to conveniently run the wires below some shrubbery and through the wall into my garage where the transformer and new receptacle will be placed (this will not be as much as an eyesore).

1) Will it be safer to run this low voltage wire through the wall (where it will be attached to the transformer and then plugged into a garage receptacle) rather than put a new receptacle outside ?

2) Will this meet code ? Would an inspector be unhappy ?

3) With a job as simple as wiring one new receptacle, do I need an inspector's approval ?

Playin' it safe !

Having the transformer in the garage with the low voltage wire running through the wall is not a problem, just make sure you have a GFIC outlet to plug it in to

Given the choice of inside or outside, I'd
install the transformer inside. There should
be no inspection/code issues, as it is low
voltage wiring.
