The TazzyTazzy layout wiring follows standardized wire coloring to easily determine the wire's purpose. Additionally, wires are numbered for easy identification to determine where they are going to come from.

Due to the nature of the long runs in our garden, the wires longer than 2 feet are twisted together to help prevent them acting like a big antenna. Additionally, to prevent voltage drop, heave gauge wire is used for longer runs.
