Landscaping Lights

I want to install low voltage landscaping lights on my front porch however, I have a little dilemma trying to figure out how I can hide the wire across my porch steps. If you are looking at our house, we have flower beds to the left and right side of our porch steps with our porch steps being in the middle. Can anyone offer any suggestions that will allow me to run the wire across without being seen and enduring the snowy winters and hot summer days in northern NJ?

There is something called a sidewalk sleever. That might work for you to go under the steps.

The porch and steps are fully concrete underneath.

I would think the concrete has to stop somewhere, so it should be possible to bore under the steps. Maybe you are asking about running the cord on the porch? A picture or two or more would be most helpful and should include where the lights will be plugged in.
