Used this design to make our yard light post. Look great!

When I had to run low voltage wire under a 4 foot section of sidewalk, I didn't use a sledge hammer, but a water hose.

I put the end of the hose at the end of a piece of conduit, turned the water on medium high, and just pushed the conduit through the dirt, with the water pushing everything out of the way.

Sure things were a little muddy, but I only had to tear up around 2 square feet of lawn grass and a square foot or so of flower bed on the other end to find the pipe. Since I was just running LV wire I just pulled the pipe back out after I ran the wire.

Why not use 12/2 and have it available for other additions. I did and later added a motorized gate.
